ViaTech is pleased to announce that it has received a coveted Brandon Hall Group gold award for excellence in the Best Advance in Technology for Virtual-Classroom or Conferencing Technology category. ViaTech’s win was announced on December 10, 2020. The complete list of winners is posted here.

The focal point of ViaTech’s application was Active Reader® – its secure electronic delivery application, developed to ensure that businesses have access to their mission-critical documents at all times. This is the second year in a row that Active Reader® has received a gold award.

ViaTech highlighted its partnership with the National Apartment Association (NAA), which plays an integral role in training and educating professionals in the rental housing community. NAA uses Active Reader® to deliver its online course materials in a controlled environment, while giving learners the flexibility to engage with content on devices of their choosing.

In addition to the gold award, ViaTech earned a bronze award for excellence in the Best Advance in Business Automation category for its content-authoring platform, Symphio – to be launched in 2021.

It has never been more important than during this rapid evolution of remote work that challenged everyone to instantly adapt,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and awards program head Rachel Cooke. “Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are critical drivers of their organizations’ success, especially in these disruptive times.
