Wisetail Takes Four Medals in the 2019 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology
Wisetail, a leader in innovative Learning Management Solutions, won four coveted Brandon Hall Group awards for excellence: one gold and three bronze.
Best Advance in Content Authoring Technology
Best Advance in Learning Management Technology
Learning Management Technology for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses
Best Advance in Social Learning Technology.
Wisetail took gold in Best Advance in Content Authoring Technology and bronze in Best Advance in Learning Management Technology, in Learning Management Technology for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses, and Best Advance in Social Learning Technology.
The Wisetail learning platform represents a notable advance in learning management technology because of the way it blends cultural elements with operational necessities. This is accomplished through a simple, intuitive interface for both the end user and the system administrator; flexibility to match organizational branding; and advanced social and interactive features. All together, Wisetail gives companies a platform through which they can administer consistent, high-touch, and branded employee support at scale.
The intuitive interface and branding flexibility are best demonstrated by a rebrand completed this spring by fast casual restaurant Urban Plates. The amount of content and number of users within the Urban Plates LMS, named The Huddle, led its learning and development team to renovate The Huddle. They updated its branding to make the platform more inviting, and rejiggered the platform’s hierarchical structure so that any information a user might need was no more than two clicks away — making it easy as possible for frontline workers to fit learning into their daily routines.
“Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are at the forefront of technology innovation. Our program evaluates not just the solution itself, but the benefit to the human capital management function, the business and the customer. That is the ultimate differentiator — whether the technology has a positive business impact. Technology Award winners pass that test with flying colors,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.
“An Excellence Award also validates the vision of the technology development team, the wisdom of the company’s investment in the solution, and the value the technology brings to the end-user,” said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group.
A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:
- Product: What was the product’s breakthrough innovation?
- Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique and how does it differ from any competing products?
- Value proposition: What problem does the product solve and/or what need does this product address?
- Measurable results: What are the benefits customers can expect to experience as a result of using this product?
