mLearning and priority communications on BlackBerry® smartphones

By: Chalk Media  09-12-2011

Chalk’s solutions are centered on driving business efficiencies and improving productivity through interactive and effective mobile communications.

More and more, workforces are dispersed and on-the-move. IDC predicts that by 2011, an astounding 75 percent of the U.S. workforce will be mobile. In line with this trend, the adoption rate of smartphones is soaring. It is predicted that the number of smartphones will exceed the number of laptops in the next 5 years.

The mobility trend has amazing advantages, but it also brings some communication challenges, namely:

  • Achieving 100 percent completion rates on required training
  • Distributing critical communications effectively
  • Distributing confidential information securely

It is these challenges that Chalk's product, Chalk Pushcast Software, addresses.
