Allen Communication Named as Top 20 Learning Portal Company for 2nd Year in a Row
Excellence in business tracking and a focus on learner experience differentiates Allen’s technology.
SALT LAKE CITY (September 8, 2014) – Allen Communication, a leader in the training and development industry, has been named a Top 20 Learning Portal Company by Training Industry for the second year in a row. Allen’s customizable learning portal stood out for its attention to the learner experience in a space that is overflowing with inefficient, inflexible, and expensive portals. The top learning portal providers were selected based on innovation and impact, breadth of functionality and capabilities, and strength of clients, among other factors.
Providing measurable business impact is the highest priority for Allen’s learning portal offerings. Powerful analytics and tracking dashboards allow administrators to monitor learner results and create data-driven responses when issues are present. Allen’s portal is also structured to allow for easy enhancements to core functionality in order to meet specific needs, incorporate client business practices, and create a tailored experience that can be seamlessly integrated into existing websites.
Allen’s award-winning portal innovations include:
- Custom-branded, role-based user interfaces and learning paths
- Automated content portfolios to help learners find the right content at the right time
- Incorporation of social and gaming strategies, including sharable achievement badges and rewards
- Ability to track learner activity with comprehensive reports that go beyond the limitations of standard SCORM, including offline activity, integrated social metrics, and mobile tool usage
- Elimination of license, individual subscription, and version fees, making it a cost-friendly solution
Additionally, an emphasis on highly-branded learner experiences are making Allen’s portal extremely valuable for Fortune 500 clients as well as marketing and brand education divisions. These organizations are distributing brand-specific training to employees as well as external sales channel partners, and consumers — critical audiences for today’s brand-centric companies. This branded, streamlined messaging decreases costs, reduces administrative burden, and expands reach of the brand messaging.
Doug Harward, Training Industry Inc.’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Their [Allen’s] ability to personalize the learning environment to both the needs of the learner and the goals of the business give us confidence in the business impact of the programs they support.”
Ron Zamir, CEO of Allen, said, “We are focused on developing learning portal innovations that make a positive impact on learner performance and ultimately the organization’s bottom line. These high-quality learning experiences are creating cost and time efficiencies as companies create one portal to personalize branded messaging for both internal and external learning groups.”
The latest Top Training Company recognition adds to six previous awards for Allen from Training Industry.
As one of few companies featured on both the top content development and learning portal lists, Allen regularly integrates custom content into learning portals to create innovative social, gaming, and personalized learning.
