Recordant to Feature Learning Services Technology at ASTD 2007

Technology Empowers Organizations to Monitor and Measure Performance

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - June 1, 2007) - Recordant, the first company to deliver "Moment of Truth Intelligence™ (MOTI)" through face-to-face audio capture, analytics and consultative services, will feature its award-winning technology at the American Society for Training and Development's (ASTD) 2007 International Conference and Exposition in Atlanta. In conjunction with custom learning organization Becker Multimedia, Recordant will showcase a complete learning and development system which provides the ability to monitor and measure performance before and after training. Attendees at this year's conference will be able to experience first hand the technology which is powered by a small personal recording device and a proprietary analytics tool. Recordant will join Becker Multimedia in Expo Booth 1713 from June 4-6.

Recordant and Becker Multimedia will provide first-hand demonstrations of this learning and development system during the ASTD Expo. The complete solution is based on a digital device only slightly larger than a matchbook and can be worn by employees around the neck, clipped to a jacket or slipped in to a shirt pocket. Extremely light and portable, the device captures critical live interactions between customers and employees, whether on the sales floor of a retail organization, at a hotel concierge desk or a bank teller window or service desk. The device also displays multimedia content for promotional messaging to customers and serves as a delivery device during targeted training for employees. Most important, the Recordant solution is an enabling technology for enterprise-wide learning services. When integrated with any learning management system (LMS), it will provide complete analytics and content that allow organizations to understand their ROI after initial training sessions.

"The Recordant solution easily lends itself to a variety of applications where interactions between customers and employees are critical. Until now, it has been difficult to effectively measure and evaluate the success of training past the initial learning phase," explains Julie Counterman, vice president of marketing for Recordant. "Our technology, when combined with the learning tools designed by Becker Multimedia, empowers training organizations to engage employees in a way not possible before -- essentially learning in the palm of their hand."

The ASTD show is a platform to launch an official relationship between Recordant and Becker Multimedia. "For the past 13 years Becker Multimedia has developed cutting-edge blended learning strategies to a wide variety of clients," notes Bob Becker, president of Becker Multimedia. "Beginning today, we can provide much needed intelligence to our clients by evaluating their training needs to ensure we create a program that is attuned to their organization's goals and best practices. More importantly, we are now able to follow up with analysis based on the actual interactions between trained employees and customers to ensure our clients are receiving the maximum value from their learning investment."
