Brainshark is also launching its Analytics Dashboard, giving users deep insight into content effectiveness, viewing data and patterns, and social activity. The dashboard combines different data on presentation views and usage into intuitive, visual representations – all on a single screen. Key viewing metrics are reflected in easy-to-access graphs and charts – with users able to drill down to see granular details, such as individual slide views for a given presentation. An important component of the Sales, Marketing, Learning and HR Cloud packages, the Analytics Dashboard will also be included in all current Brainshark subscriptions.
With the Analytics Dashboard, users can instantly assess the effectiveness of their sales, marketing, training and other content. The dashboard brings to life all the important data Brainshark collects, making content even more useful and actionable.
It’s easy for sales reps to see, for example, how their content is performing and when interest is hot, while managers can tell which reps are the most active and getting the best results. Marketing professionals can monitor video content performance by number of views and/or audience retention – quickly identifying successful presentations and under-performers, and taking appropriate action. In addition, organizations can see how and whether eLearning presentations are being consumed, reinforcing proper training. Users can also observe trends over time, so they can alter presentation content or target audiences to ensure maximum impact.
