TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To help organizations correlate their learning program investments to employee job performance, Tribridge is now offering new and existing customers the Watershed Method, popular e-learning technology created by Rustici Software. The Tribridge Human Capital Management (HCM) and Rustici teams are currently rolling out the integrated solution with worldwide jeweler PANDORA.
"Rustici has changed the game by enabling organizations to create a clear connection between learning activities and post-learning performance," said Skip Marshall, CTO and VP of professional services, Tribridge's Human Capital Management business unit. "Tribridge AmplifyHRSM ensures that training is highly customized to precise industry, organization and individual requirements, while Rustici's solution provides clear evidence that our customer's strategic training investment is indeed paying off."
Watershed uses a new technology called the Tin Can API or xAPI, which allows organizations to track learning activities anywhere they happen — online, offline, simulations, in-person, games and more — and see all of these activities in one central place, a Learning Record Store (LRS). Because this technology is now integrated with Tribridge's cloud-based AmplifyHR platform, customers will have the industry's only true end-to-end solution to design, deliver and track the impact of employee's learning experiences.
PANDORA is among the first companies to benefit from the Tribridge-Rustici partnership. As the company unveils its new product line internationally, it wants to measure how new, highly customized learning activities are impacting sales on per store/per sales associate basis. The company will use AmplifyHR to develop and track learning activity across multiple sources – including instructor-led, social learning tools and materials developed by Tribridge's HCM team, and data from this activity will live in the Watershed LRS. PANDORA will then have unprecedented insight into which learning activities demonstrably improve sales performance and which do not.
"Our Watershed LRS, supported by the Watershed method, is a disruptive technology that's transforming enterprise learning," said Mike Rustici, president of Rustici Software. "AmplifyHR is designed to embrace technologies such as ours to drive greater engagement, learning and decision-making, and we're excited to show organizations like PANDORA what's possible when they can identify and respond to direct correlations between learning activities and business performance."
