WALTHAM, Mass. — June 25, 2013 — Brainshark, Inc., the leading sales
enablement platform provider, today announced product enhancements designed
to help mobile users access video presentations and courses in an even more
streamlined, convenient way. Brainshark’s recently announced Sales
Enablement Portal now includes an interface optimized for smartphone access
– so mobile sales reps can efficiently find, view and share the content they
need. In addition, Brainshark Rapid Learning, the company’s award-winning
learning management solution, features a redesigned interface, with
bolstered search capabilities and even easier content access for learners on
desktop and mobile devices.

Smartphone Savvy: Sales Enablement Portal
As smartphone sales continue to skyrocket – with more than 216 million units
shipped in Q1, according to IDC – the devices are becoming even more
indispensable and ubiquitous for mobile salespeople. Brainshark’s new Sales
Enablement Portal, previously designed for desktop and tablet access, now
provides an optimized viewing experience for iPhone and Android smartphone
users as well. After logging onto the portal, smartphone users can:

• Use landing page shortcuts to quickly access featured presentations, as
well as content they’ve authored and/or marked as “favorite.”
• Search for relevant content via text search.
• Interact with video presentations. After clicking play, users can easily
navigate to any point within a presentation, and also answer any embedded
survey, poll or test questions.
• View and open attachments associated with presentations.
• Click to share video presentations instantly via email.

New Design for Brainshark Rapid Learning
Brainshark Rapid Learning is a learning management solution that extends the
capabilities of Brainshark On-Demand – allowing organizations to easily
create and deploy eLearning programs, manage student enrollment, and measure
the progress of learners and groups. Customers report cutting training time
in half through Brainshark – using Brainshark Rapid Learning to deliver
formal training to employees and partners, accelerate on-boarding, conduct
sales training, ensure compliance and increase employee knowledge levels in

Now, when students log on to access their secure “Learning Locker” – which
displays their current and previous enrollments – they benefit from a
redesigned and even more intuitive interface, with new and improved
functionality. These enhancements are tailored to both desktop/laptop and
tablet users – providing easy mobile viewing and support for mobile learning
(mLearning) initiatives.

Students benefit from:

• Expanded search capabilities. In addition to searching the course catalog,
students can conduct searches across their current and prior course and
curriculum enrollments – noting, for example, completion status and courses
• Detailed content landing pages. When students click a course, they have
immediate access to important, individualized information. From the course
title page, students can view the course description and credit information,
see prerequisites and completion criteria, start or resume unfinished
courses, and more. The view is optimized for touch-screens as well.
• A tabbed view, making it easy to jump between current and prior courses
and curricula. Indicators at the top of each tab allow students to instantly
see when they’ve been enrolled in new courses.
• A shortcut to their transcript, so students can click to track which
courses they’ve completed and how they scored, providing validation as
• Smart sorting. Students’ Learning Lockers remember how they prefer to view
results (for example, sorted by title, completion status, expiration date,
etc.), and whether they prefer a list or thumbnail view.

which now has a similar look and feel to our Sales Enablement Portal, giving
customers a more unified experience,” said Brainshark President Greg Flynn.
