Litmos Boosts Learning Retention Through Wearables and Mobile Applications

New App Uses Mobile Technology to Keep Learners Engaged and Reinforce Knowledge as Part of Litmos' Mobile Learning Suite

DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwired - May 12, 2015) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), a global leader in cloud-based sales, marketing, learning and customer experience solutions, today announced the Litmos® Boost app for wearable and mobile computing devices including the Apple Watch.

The application, unveiled at CallidusCloud's annual C3 Conference in Las Vegas, NV, will allow users of the Litmos Learning Management System to receive "booster" questions and reminders through their Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone and Android devices, reinforcing the value of learning.

The app allows learning professionals to set up a set of small "booster" questions that can be delivered at intervals to remind training participants of key takeaways.

"Research has suggested that retention is much greater when you keep trainees engaged with the material, even through very brief interactions," said Rory Cameron, SVP, Learning and Marketing Platforms at CallidusCloud. "Boost delivers that engagement by sending booster snippets every 30 days after a course to improve the retention of the information, significantly increasing the return on investment of training."

The Litmos Learning Management System allows learners to take courses anytime, anywhere via their mobile devices. Calendar integration allows them to be reminded of scheduled training sessions and due dates, and Boost allows them to receive learning refreshers on the go. Administrators and managers can define learning boosts for content and frequency, assess knowledge retention over time, and refine learning strategy and assignments.

See Litmos next week at Booth 435 at the ATD Conference in Orlando, Florida.

The Booster App will be available in the third quarter of 2015.
