CellCast Takes Top Honors at DemoFest 2010

 We're pleased to officially announce two awards for OnPoint's CellCast Solution gained from our recent participation in DemoFest 2010 held in conjunction with The eLearning Guild's annual DevLearn 2010 Conference in San Francisco. The awards were given in support of our entry titled "mLearning: Learning on the Go" in the Sales Training category that OnPoint jointly submitted for consideration with CellCast customer Verizon Wireless.  Our winning entry in the Sales Training category also was recognized as "Best in Show - Vendor" for the entire event.

The annual DemoFest contest is a “people’s choice” style competition where participants vote for the courses or applications they consider the most innovative solutions or approaches to various e-Learning challenges. Participants see a wide variety of demonstrations and have a chance to talk to the designers and developers about the tools, technologies, and processes they used to meet their project’s goals and objectives.

OnPoint worked with Verizon Wireless on a project designed to provide their outbound sales teams with greater and easier access to regular sales practices, production/solution previews, and updated business communications; the solution utilized OnPoint’s CellCast® mobile learning platform to make that content available via a variety of company-issued smartphones. By making content available beyond the standard classroom or desktop-delivered experience, Verizon Wireless was able to provide enhanced access to just-in-time training in a shortened time frame via the customized mobile application on users’ smartphones, including Android ®, BlackBerry® wireless handhelds and Windows Mobile ® devices. The end-to-end mobile solution provided by OnPoint compliments Verizon Wireless’ existing enterprise LMS platform and extends their blended learning environment to their ever-mobile sales professionals. Key objectives of the project included the ability to create and deliver a broad array of content types to a variety of mobile device platforms, along with full integration between OnPoint’s CellCast platform and Verizon Wireless’ enterprise LMS—all while meeting strict security guidelines mandated by Verizon’s IT and Learning/Development management teams.

And while it is certainly wonderful to gain recognition for our efforts and technologies from the learning community at large, the real "icing on the cake" was the fact we won and share this recognition in conjunction with the outstanding team we've worked with at Verizon Wireless. Without the commitment and forward-looking vision of great customers, our efforts to create great tools or technologies would have a hard time finding tangible meaning or purpose. VZW helped us "up our game" considerably on so many fronts and helped to "raise the bar" on what's possible -- and soon to be expected -- in enterprise mobile learning!!

And final kudos to the entire OnPoint Digital team of designers, developers, engagement managers, sales and marketing staff for their daily contributions that make this sort of recognition something we can all share.
