JetBlue University and Allen Communication Win Gold Omni Award for Mobile Solution
Salt Lake City (February 19, 2013) – JetBlue University and Allen Communication have been honored with a Gold Omni Award for an Interactive Corporate Training Mobile Solution. JetBlue University, the corporate university of JetBlue Airways, partnered with Allen Communication Learning Services to develop a powerful interactive map of the JetBlue Long Island Support Center. The interactive map is designed to work with mobile devices and traditional desk-top platforms. JetBlue University created the innovative mobile solution to allow its employees to quickly acclimate to their facilities and get the most out of their support center amenities.
The Omni Intermedia Awards are owned and operated by Media Corp Inc., which exists to recognize outstanding media productions that engage, empower and enlighten. Awards are given for exceptional work in Film, Video, TV, Internet, Interactive Media, Animation and Audio production.
“The mission of the Omni Awards is to recognizing excellence in media productions and we’re proud that the JetBlue University Mobile Solution has earned that recognition,” said Ron Zamir, CEO of Allen. “Relatively simple learning tools like this interactive map can have a huge impact on employee change management and adoption. We as a company must continue to help our clients innovate and adapt to technologies and approaches.”
“Our mobile initiative of fitting an interactive map into a small cell phone screen had unique challenges,” said Warren Christie, VP of Operational Planning and Training at JetBlue University. “We’re very pleased with the Mobile Solution and our Crewmembers have been quick to adopt this helpful new resource.”
This collaboration between JetBlue University and Allen is not the first. JetBlue University used Allen’s learning technology to deliver their online course catalog to over 12,000 JetBlue Crewmembers.
