San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Braidio, a cloud-based learning and talent development platform, today announced the release of Braidio SMB, a self-driven solution that provides small-to-mid-sized companies access to enterprise-grade online learning and talent development. The solution empowers small to mid-sized organizations to quickly provision, manage and track learning through an intuitive dashboard. Braidio SMB also includes Knowledge Tap, a proprietary tool which leverages social and peer exchanges to automatically create an internally-sourced knowledge base for employee reference. Through Bradio SMB, companies also gain access to curated online courses from leading subject matter experts in talent development.
“Large organizations have long provided training to their employees to acquire the necessary skills to thrive. However, when smaller businesses explore the usual options to train, educate and develop their staff, it can overwhelm them to the point of paralysis. Due to cost and complexity, many end up choosing to do nothing,” said Braidio CEO Iain Scholnick. “We identified a void in the market for a light platform with the essentials for SMBs – one that strips out all the bloatware they don’t really need, while also providing bite-sized curated learning content more aligned with what they actually want.”
Braidio SMB provides a sustainable, affordable and scalable alternative to expensive traditional Learning Management Systems (LMS), instructor-led training and outdated online courses, making it easier for employees to build the skills required to operate effectively in today’s marketplace – all within the flow of their workday.
Key Benefits of Braidio SMB:
- Customize, Deploy and Manage: Through Braidio, managers and administrators can select and manage content, assign courses and track employee progress.
- Curated Content: A growing library of courses is available, without any need for curriculum development by SMBs themselves, if they lack resources.
- Enable Employee Driven Learning Experiences: Drive social learning through peer-to-peer exchanges to establish a sustainable employee-driven learning economy within your organization.
- Upload & Share: Easily upload and distribute your own videos, PDFs, SCORM courses and more, to create your own courses at will.
- Learning & Engagement Analytics: Get a complete, data-driven view of employee learning participation and effectiveness across your business.
“Today’s dynamic marketplace needs an agile solution that employees will actually use and gain value from. Both small and mid-sized companies are realizing that, in order to compete, attract and retain employees they need to invest in training and developing them,” said Rafael Solis, CMO and co-founder of Braidio. “Braidio goes beyond just pushing out a course; it attempts to integrate learning into the everyday workflow of an organization and its employees – for more sustainable and effective talent development.”
Braidio SMB delivers content in relevant, bite-sized and interactive learning blocks that address present issues, while analytics track and measure how the learning is being adopted and practiced within an organization. Within the platform, employees can discuss, collaborate on and apply the learning on an ongoing basis. For further information, please visit braidio.com.
