Working with such a forward-thinking organization has been a true pleasure, and we are proud of what we have achieved together.
Savannah, GA, (PRWEB) November 22, 2010
OnPoint Digital, Inc., a leading provider of eLearning and Mobile learning solutions, is pleased to announce its win for best entry in the ‘Sales Training’ category as well as its award for the overall ‘Best in Show – Vendor’ recognition at the eLearning Guild’s 6th Annual e-Learning DemoFest, part of the DevLearn 2010 Conference in San Francisco, California. Robert Gadd, President and Co-founder of OnPoint Digital, and Wil Wells, Consultant—Workforce Development: New Technologies for Verizon Wireless, demonstrated the winning solution to conference attendees during the two hour event Thursday, November 4th, 2010.
DemoFest is a “people’s choice” style competition where participants vote for the courses or applications they consider the most innovative solutions or approaches to various e-Learning challenges. Participants see a wide variety of demonstrations and have a chance to talk to the designers and developers about the tools, technologies, and processes they used to meet their project’s goals and objectives.
OnPoint’s entry in the Sales Training category was entitled “mLearning: Learning on the Go” – a mobile learning solution for Verizon Wireless. OnPoint worked with Verizon Wireless on a project designed to provide their outbound sales teams with greater and easier access to regular sales practices, production/solution previews, and updated business communications; the solution utilized OnPoint’s CellCast® mobile learning platform to make that content available via a variety of company-issued smartphones. By making content available beyond the standard classroom or desktop-delivered experience, Verizon Wireless was able to provide enhanced access to just-in-time training in a shortened time frame via the customized mobile application on users’ smartphones, including Android ®, BlackBerry® wireless handhelds and Windows Mobile ® devices. The end-to-end mobile solution provided by OnPoint compliments Verizon Wireless’ existing enterprise LMS platform and extends their blended learning environment to their ever-mobile sales professionals. Key objectives of the project included the ability to create and deliver a broad array of content types to a variety of mobile device platforms, along with full integration between OnPoint’s CellCast platform and Verizon Wireless’ enterprise LMS—all while meeting strict security guidelines mandated by Verizon’s IT and Learning & Development management teams.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our work with Verizon Wireless,” said Robert Gadd, OnPoint Digital’s co-presenter at the DemoFest event. “Working with such a forward-thinking organization has been a true pleasure, and we are proud of what we have achieved together – especially with regards to the myriad complex platform integration and security features we established to deliver a secure anytime, anywhere mobile learning experience for Verizon’s sales teams.”
Wil Wells, who co-presented from Verizon Wireless, said, “It was exciting to show attendees the new, more flexible way our sales teams can access their training materials, product updates and business communications while on the go. And from an administrative perspective, the ease with which we can now track all completion data and test results back in our centralized LMS platform for real-time reporting and analysis has proven to be a key component of our success with this project.”
