Big River Technologies, Inc. announced today a strategic partnership with Appinium, a leading provider of content distribution and tracking solutions on the Salesforce App Cloud. According to Big River Technologies, Inc. founder John Free, Appinium’s LearnTrac software is at the core of the firm’s latest release of its next generation learning platform, called Knowledge as a Service (KaaS). The partnership will result in increased adoption of Appinium’s technology and help Big River Technologies, Inc. build more effective training solutions for its clients. The two companies also will jointly market and sell new offerings based on Appinium technology and KaaS curriculum delivery solutions.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer Salesforce customers a new way to drive engagement with big river and Stantive Technologies Group,” said Steve Jacobson, Appinium CEO, “This new offering allows customers to access wall to wall analytics from their video and learning consumption data.”

The KaaS training program was designed from the ground up by the curriculum and learning experts at Big River Technologies, Inc. to support online, interactive end-user training for native Salesforce applications. Curriculum content is delivered, side-by-side with an application running within Salesforce, supported with helpful and instructional video content. Following a model loosely patterned after the familiar Trailhead look and feel, course material is organized to maximize engagement and retention.

The solution comprises online modules, mastery of underlying concepts and ample hands-on practice, high courseware production values, optional customizable instructor-led deliveries, white-labeling, learner progress tracking and proctored certification.
