Allen Communication Releases Update for DesignJot

Press Release

February 24, 2012

Allen Communication Learning Services, a leader in custom corporate training and instructional design, is pleased to be named a 2012 Bersin & Associates Learning Leader in the Vendor Innovation in Learning and Talent Management category. Allen was recognized for DesignJot, its groundbreaking iPad app designed to help instructional designers, trainers and performance consultants build better training.

Bersin & Associates is a premier research firm empowering human resource organizations to drive bottom-line impact. The Bersin & Associates Learning Leader program, now in its sixth year, is a research-driven program designed to recognize innovation and excellence in critical areas of HR, learning, and talent.

“We’re honored to be named a Learning Leader,” said Ron Zamir, president and CEO of Allen Communication. “DesignJot leverages best practices we’ve established over 30 years of developing award-winning custom training and instructional design. We’re very pleased that Bersin & Associates has chosen to recognize the positive contribution this app has made to the field of instructional design and the positive impact solid design has on change management within an organization.”

“At a time when rapid change is commonplace and employees must juggle conflicting priorities, simplicity is becoming really important,” said Kim Lamoureux, senior director of research practices and principal analyst at Bersin & Associates. “Finding ways to deliver simple solutions requires innovative thinking, and this year’s winners demonstrated a drive to make it very easy to meet one critical learning or talent need successfully.”

DesignJot includes two independent yet interrelated components, analysis and design, in a powerful and intuitive app. This update to the app improves on the functionality of the already highly-rated app and incorporates new functionality requested by users. The app is available for download now in the iTunes store.
