PALO ALTO, CA–(Marketwire – August 13, 2012) – Mindflash, the leading online training platform, today announced its launch of the first training app for Yammer, a leading provider of enterprise social networks. This deeply integrated experience makes employee training more social and more accessible for the companies already using Yammer for collaboration and communications. The new Mindflash app for Yammer makes it easy to create, distribute and track courses vital for employee success and seamlessly incorporates those courses into companies’ internal communications. Yammer users can download the Mindflash app from the Yammer Apps Directory today.
Key Features of the Mindflash/Yammer integration include:
Increased Awareness of Courses: Trainers can take advantage of the Yammer activity stream Ticker and notifications to publicize courses and get trainees started.
More Engaging, Social Training Experience: Trainees can share their scores, comment on courses, and start conversations on new training needs.
More Efficient, Timesaving Platform: Trainers can identify and invite trainees right from their always-current Yammer contacts list. Utilizing Yammer Pages, trainers can create easily discoverable catalogs of courses for their colleagues.
“Yammer users want training to be a topic of active conversation on their network,” said Donna Wells, CEO of Mindflash. “We’re excited to be the first to offer them that capability today. Our app fully leverages Yammer’s powerful feature set to make it more effective and efficient for businesses of any size to create, share and manage training.”
“Yammer has used Mindflash since 2011 for our own employee training,” said Misha McPherson, Senior Training Program Manager at Yammer. “This integration will benefit our customers who are truly passionate about learning and development as well as employee engagement. We are also thrilled to be using the Mindflash integration as our customer training platform to make our new users’ onboarding experience even richer and more rewarding.”

This integration is a natural extension of our platform,” said An Le, Vice President of Business Development at Yammer. “By integrating the Mindflash application with Yammer, it is easier than ever for companies to help employees succeed.”
Over 300,000 courses have been completed by hundreds of thousands of trainees on Mindflash, since its September 2010 launch.
