BlueVolt, the leading provider of online learning management systems (LMS) for the manufacturing, construction and service industries, is the winner of the Brandon Hall Gold Award for the Best Advance in Rewards and Recognition Technology for its innovative $BlueBucks rewards program.
$BlueBucks is a built-in, pay-for-performance system that excites and rewards learners as they successfully complete training through their company’s LMS or online University powered by BlueVolt. Proven to increase online course enrollments up to ten times, adding $BlueBucks to training ensures more learners successfully complete the courses companies often spend hours developing and promoting. Learners may redeem their $BlueBucks rewards for virtual gift cards at hundreds of retailers nationwide, the purchase of future courses, or donate to charity.
“We are very proud that Brandon Hall has recognized the advancements in our $BlueBucks program,” said Don Spear, BlueVolt president and CEO. “Allowing instant redemption of earned $BlueBucks for virtual eGift cards from within our LMS makes it easy to motivate and reward learners, which is a key component to a successful, robust training program.”
Now in its 18th year, judging criteria for the Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology awards are based on the product’s innovation, its unique differentiators, the value of the need the product addresses and the measurable results for customers.
"2011 provided us with a unique viewpoint of how organizations are driving business results and performance improvement through technology. This was the year in which technology providers and their clients have been able to transform the power of mobile, social, talent, learning, sales and marketing technologies, with proven, validated results. Most impressive to our judges was an underlying theme around collaborative relationships, a deep understanding of client needs and how technology can be leveraged to create opportunities and operating efficiencies for organizations of all sizes. I am proud to announce these first-rate solution providers as award winners in the most competitive year yet," said Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group.
A panel of veteran, independent senior judges evaluated the entries along with Brandon Hall Group’s industry expert analysts and leadership.
