dominKnow | ONE wins double gold awards from Brandon Hall Group

We’re so proud that dominKnow | ONE has won two coveted Gold awards in this year’s Brandon Hall Group awards for Excellence. Our wins came in the “Best Advance in Content Authoring Technology" and "Best Advance in Content Management Technology" categories.  

On December 8, 2022, the Brandon Hall Group announced the winners for Excellence in Technology Awards.

“We’re honored to have won for two prestigious categories. We have to thank our clients, for their efforts to work alongside us regarding the entries, and to help us showcase the amazing work they’re producing in dominKnow | ONE,” said dominKnow CEO, Luke Hickey.

Best Advance in Content Management Technology  

The “Best Advance in Content Management Technology” award addressed the object-based approach that client Salience Learning took when it came to learning asset development. This approach set up development and improved continuity across objects within the client’s Capability Academies. Additionally, the entry also included ePerformax and their employee specific SWOT (Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats) analysis solution that resulted in significant time and monies saved.  

Salience Learning Saves Time and Money on Repurposing eLearning Content
Salience Learning built personalized learning academies that supported several Capability Academies and targeted specific learning support needs. Salience Learning satisfied client needs and use objects that supported a learning objective or performance outcome of that solution, alongside any additional learning assets. Objects that require job-function specific context were easier to create and faster to edit, reducing the need to edit content line-by-line.   

But the impact wasn’t limited to object use. dominKnow’s centralized and secure platform made it possible for Salience Learning to completely leverage their valuable intellectual property — making it easy to re-use and repurpose content.  

“I could not imagine if we had to do version control from desktop development tools and set up a file management system!”  - Amy Parent, Director of Learning Ecosystem and Platform Strategy, Salience Learning 

Creating, updating, and managing content is one thing, but it doesn’t amount to much without easy, unhindered access. dominKnow | ONE outputs HTML5 content and publishes to SCORM, AICC, xAPI, and PENS standards, which means Salience Learning’s content is ready for delivery to virtually any location — the web, the desktop, mobile apps, or in document formats.

Best Advance in Content Authoring Technology

The Best Advance in Content Authoring Technology entry focused on an online knowledge-based training course which resulted in shared knowledge being accessible to internal teams. In turn, the Medical Solution’s Learning & Development teams were able to get resources to learners 30% quicker.  

Also, this entry explained how scuba-based business, PADI, was able to create a knowledge-based learning course in 28 languages that saved 1-hour of onsite time per customer, which over time was a considerable time savings.

Medical Solutions Delivers 30% Quicker on eLearning and Development
Medical Solutions
required an accurate understanding of the integration between three different systems that must remain in constant communication. However, visible information must be limited due to health acts. As a result, Medical Solutions’ contract staff (called Travelers) had no access to external facing systems, making it difficult to relay information. 

Through dominKnow | ONE, Medical Solutions created a Knowledge Base that included all supporting material supporting two external systems and an internal system Portal Document Interface.

dominKnow | ONE not only alleviated the lack of visibility into systems, but also streamlined the content authoring processes. What used to be 18 separate documents was condensed into one web URL which reflected immediate updates as the systems changed or received enhancement requests. 

The simplicity of design in an adjustable responsive format for any device resulted in: 

  • Getting resources to learners 30% quicker 
  • Real time updates as systems change with ability to implement immediate updates to content with one-click republish 
  • Increased partnership across marketing, sales, and training for external communication to 22,000+ external contract employees   

As a result of the shared knowledge, internal teams are better able to assist external resulting in an increase in organization wide Net Promoter Scores to an increased Customer Satisfaction to 75 (up from 65 year prior). For reference, a score of 60 or higher is generally a very good NPS in any industry, thus making this increase significant.
