“Mobile solutions provide access to assets wherever employees learn best, ensuring content is available at the point of need”
“Mobile solutions provide access to assets wherever employees learn best, ensuring content is available at the point of need,” says Patrick Brigger, co-founder of getAbstract. “Which is especially important for today’s 73 percent of organizations that are actively engaging in mobile learning. The traditional 9 to 5 work hours and four walls of an office are no longer barriers, employees now depend on mobile devices to work anytime, anywhere. The SSO capability on getAbstract’s platforms will deliver that convenient experience our customers demand and expect.”
More than ever, mobile learning is key to expanding opportunities for participation and engagement of employees within changing workforces. Whether it’s sales teams working through development plans while in the field or traveling executives accessing on-demand content to refresh their skills before a big presentation, mobile learning enables a smarter workforce, no matter where they are. Today, millions of users access getAbstract’s library of 10,000 business book summaries, including over one-third of the Fortune 100 companies.
“Today’s generation of workers is accustomed to having information instantly available at their fingertips,” adds Brigger. “Employees want to be able to use their tablets and smartphones and, as user preferences change, it’s important for learning programs to evolve in tandem. With getAbstract’s SSO, users can start on one device and finish on another, allowing them to learn within their own workflow. This new functionality transforms learners’ devices into both an office and a classroom.”
