PRESS RELEASE: Tandem Learning Launches Virtual Territory™

Excited to officially announce our press release on the Virtual Territory™:

Tandem Learning Launches Virtual Territory™
Practice Makes Performance in the Virtual World

EXTON, Pennsylvania -November 13th, 2008– As part of an initiative to create a new standard for enterprise-wide training, Tandem Learning announced the launch of Virtual Territory™, the first product in their Virtual Immersion™ Series. An immersive learning environment, Virtual Territory™ combines virtual world technology with simulation, competitive features and comprehensive data collection and tracking.

While traditional training materials such as print, e-learning, and live workshops can establish a common knowledge base, they fall short of effectively preparing learners to apply that knowledge in a real world setting. Virtual Territory™ was created to accelerate the learning process from knowledge acquisition to application by providing an engaging and realistic setting in which to practice using new skills.

Koreen Olbrish, CEO of Tandem Learning, said: “In today’s economy, ensuring your sales force hits their goals is more important than ever. The Virtual Territory is a breakthrough training solution for organizations trying to cost-effectively improve the performance of their sales team. We work with our clients to create experiences that address their specific training needs and properly represent their industry.”

Comprehensive data tracking allows enterprises to monitor trends and analyze learner performance. This data is invaluable in determining performance gaps that can be addressed through additional experiences in the virtual world, coaching, or other future learning initiatives.

Also in development as part of Tandem’s Virtual Immersion™ Series are virtual training environments targeting communication skills, customer service and process training.
