Real-time Communications and Open APIs deliver collaborative learning for today’s workforce

Orlando, FL, March 8, 2016GENBAND, a leading provider of real-time communications, and Braidio, a cloud-based learning and talent development platform for small to medium-sized businesses and enterprise organizations, today announced they are integrating real-time communications capabilities powered by GENBAND’s Kandy Platform as a Service (PaaS) – ultimately delivering agile collaborative learning for enterprise workforces across the globe.

“For too long, enterprise learning has been relegated to clunky programs and instructor-led sessions which are removed from the day to day workflows in which people actually learn,” said Braidio CEO and founder Iain Scholnick. “Embedding Kandy’s real-time communications capabilities into our platform enhances ease of use and integration, helping employees collaborate and learn in the context of their work - the way they were meant to.”

Braidio leverages Kandy’s robust real-time communications capabilities including rich messaging, group messaging, voice and video chat and open APIs to make scalable learning, collaboration and integrated communications intuitive and accessible. Courses are easily created, developed and deployed, helping to capture essential knowledge and deliver it in the actionable formats that meet the needs of today’s increasingly knowledge-based workforce.

“We’re recognizing more and more that technology works best when it’s scaled for humans and works effortlessly,” said Paul Pluschkell, Kandy co-founder. “Much of what employees learn comes from social and peer experiences, which help drive collaboration, culture, talent and teamwork – we’re thrilled that Braidio is leveraging Kandy’s rich communications capabilities and intuitive ergonomics to further their mission of establishing an employee-driven learning economy within organizations.”
