Why was Qstream selected by Lighthouse Research and Advisory for Best Analytics, Measurement, and Business Impact Solution?
Qstream is the pioneer of microlearning technology. It helps people pick up new skills and understand a new task or process. What’s taught gets cemented into their memory so they can apply these updated competencies to their jobs. The user experience encourages high engagement because every learner is heavily involved in the platform’s scenario-based challenges. On the back end, the analytics dashboards provide extensive data points so organizations can see employees learn the necessary skills in real time and monitor their progress. Qstream has incredible customer success stories that demonstrate the strong business impact from the technology’s analytics functionalities.
How Qstream’s Microlearning solution collects and visualizes proficiency analytics based on the learners’ responses to microlearning challenges:
Once employees have responded to scenario-based challenges, Qstream calculates in depth engagement and proficiency data points related to people’s job skills. From this, employees’ knowledge retention and mastery levels are showcased as they progress through the learning experience. The real-time analytics dashboards provide hierarchical and granular insights into the learner’s proficiency and performance by topics related to demographics such as country, region, departments, teams, and as far as down to the individual level. Executives and front-line managers are able to precisely identify skill gaps and measure proficiency for any specific audience they want to look into. Executives determine the business impact achieved through learning and development initiatives and managers are prepared to have productive and personalized coaching conversations, at scale. No other learning and development program provides such robust analytics. As a result, organizations are equipped to develop their most valuable asset – their workforce – for business growth.
“While the user experience is a major differentiator, our judging team was also impressed with the granularity of the dashboards to analyze data on the back end,” said Ben Eubanks, Chief Research Officer, Lighthouse Research and Advisory. “It’s not an afterthought like with some systems.”
“Traditional learning systems don’t provide the type of granular analytics needed to measure skill mastery levels,” said Jim Bowley, Vice President of Product, Qstream. “By solving the learning engagement challenge, our innovative analytics visualize proficiency gaps that teams can address to truly advance business growth and revenue.”
