Eedo Dashboard Measures Effectiveness of Learning Programs and Their Impact on Business

New Product From Eedo Knowledgeware Aggregates Data From Multiple Sources to Measure, Monitor and Make Strategic Business Decisions

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - October 30, 2007) - Proving the strategic value of learning and knowledge programs just got easier with the latest product from Eedo Knowledgeware. Eedo Dashboard™ enables chief learning officers and learning and HR managers to effectively monitor, measure and report on key indicators (such as change, readiness, productivity) to show their impact on performance and corporate outcomes. With this information, users can also adjust programs in a timely manner to ensure their strategies meet objectives.

Until now, users had no easy way to get quantifiable data about their programs. Eedo Dashboard, is fully integrated with Eedo's learning content management system (LCMS), ForceTen™. Eedo Dashboard aggregates data from ForceTen and other human resource and business systems, compares it to established objectives and presents the results in a graphical format. Using the information, learning managers can improve how they transfer knowledge across an organization or report on its success, aligning knowledge transfer programs with business strategy.

"Measurement of corporate learning is one of HR's top challenges," said Josh Bersin, President of Bersin & Associates, a research and advisory firm specializing in enterprise learning and talent management. "Solutions such as the EEDO Dashboard help organizations implement pragmatic, actionable measurement programs to evaluate and improve their learning investments."

Eedo Dashboard helps learning managers to:

--  Define strategic goals and learning objectives using a balanced
    scorecard framework;
--  Align objectives to progress indicators, then collect, aggregate and
    report progress against defined targets;
--  Automate the collection of key measurement data from various sources
    into a single source of meaningful indicators;
--  Show actual and projected progress towards goals;
--  Determine statistical correlations between learning and business
    measures; and
--  Identify work processes that require improvements to meet expected
    targets.
    

"Eedo Dashboard is an easy-to-use tool to measure what learning organizations are trying to manage -- change, product readiness, productivity, etc," said John Hudson, Eedo's President and CEO. "The simple-to-read but meaningful graphs show how learning programs are impacting the business, proving their worth as investments, not costs."
