ViaTech announced today that it earned a coveted Brandon Hall Group gold award for excellence in the Best Advance in Mobile Learning Technology category. The complete list of winners is posted here.

The focal point of ViaTech’s application was its revolutionary enterprise application, Active Reader® – developed to ensure that businesses have access to their mission-critical documents at all times. Active Reader® enables secure electronic document delivery, transforming any device into a platform for engaging authenticated users with tailored content.

ViaTech highlighted its partnership with CAE – a worldwide leader in training for the civil aviation, defense and security, and healthcare industries. CAE relies on Active Reader® to support 61 courses and more than 11,600 student pilots and instructors.

“Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are at the forefront of technology innovation. Our program evaluates not just the solution itself, but the benefit to the human capital management function, the business and the customer. That is the ultimate differentiator – whether the technology has a positive business impact. Technology Award winners pass that test with flying colors,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.

“An Excellence Award also validates the vision of the technology development team, the wisdom of the company’s investment in the solution, and the value the technology brings to the end-user,” said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group.

A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:

• Product: What was the product’s breakthrough innovation?

• Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique and how does it differ from any competing products?

• Value proposition: What problem does the product solve and/or what need does this product address?

• Measurable results: What are the benefits customers can expect to experience as a result of using this product?
