Intuition, a leading global provider of learning services to financial markets, life sciences and government sector, today announced that it was selected as a finalist in the 2008 Wireless Leadership Awards. Being selected as a finalist recognises Intuition's work with Merrill Lynch for its GoLearn project. The GoLearn project at Merrill Lynch was recognised as a finalist in the Innovation in the Private Sector category during a ceremony at the 2008 Wireless Enterprise Symposium in Orlando, Florida.
"We are hugely pleased to have been selected from amongst the global entrants for this prestigious honour for implementing our mobile learning technology solution," says Keith O'Loughlin, Head of Technology Services at Intuition. "The technology approach we applied centered on leveraging the existing mobile infrastructure at Merrill Lynch, whilst adhering to industry standards, and most importantly of all ease of use and deployment."
The GoLearn project delivers mandated learning to BlackBerry® smartphone users through an application developed by Intuition. This project enables employees to access learning materials during naturally occurring down time, such as, the daily commute or while travelling on business.
Kristofor Swanson, the global HR mobile strategy lead at Merrill Lynch said: "Using BlackBerry smartphones to deliver learning has been so effective that participants now take their courses in about 45% less time, saving about four to six hours in lost productivity per annum. These employees have also scored higher on competency exams than their colleagues studying in a traditional online format."
