RWD uPerform® Express Gives Boost to Mid-Market Employee Performance
'Express' Offering Improves End User Productivity and Efficiency with On-the-Job Support
BALTIMORE, Nov. 12 /-- RWD Technologies, a global company that develops and implements organizational performance solutions, announced today the availability of RWD uPerform Express, a cost-effective performance support solution that allows small-to-medium sized businesses (SMB) to improve employee efficiency and productivity through application simulations and procedural documentation.
RWD uPerform Express meets the needs of SMBs that are increasingly investing in more complex technology solutions to support system integration, compliance requirements and streamlined business processes.
"SMBs represent one of the more aggressively growing markets for technology investment," said Susan Lee, Research Analyst, Learning Services at IDC. "To maximize these investments, human components, such as performance and training support, should be considered. Companies should consider performance solutions that do not take employees away from work and require minimal additional infrastructure investments."
RWD designed RWD uPerform Express to be a self-managed solution that resides on a company's own infrastructure. It allows companies to roll out business applications and processes efficiently and affordably by rapidly creating documentation and learning content that allow employees to learn when they want, how they want, while they work.
"Mid-sized customers are purchasing solutions that have the potential to transform their businesses," said Frank Lonergan, vice president, Product Development and Product Support, RWD Technologies. "But that potential is only unleashed when companies invest in their people and help them understand how to make the most out of these solutions. RWD uPerform Express provides an easy, flexible platform that gives SMBs exactly what they need."
RWD uPerform Express supports standard enterprise applications and Microsoft(R) Windows web-based applications. It allows companies to quickly and easily develop and manage learning content, efficiently distribute this content via a performance support website to a dispersed workforce, and provide employees with contextual, on-the-job support.
"Mid-market customers have many of the same performance needs as larger enterprise customers. They need tools to enhance employee performance, improve business process consistency and retain knowledge," said Lonergan. "RWD uPerform Express is our response to these critical SMB requirements."
