BLP customers and Knowledge Guru subscribers got the big scoop last week on our Fall 2016 release of Knowledge Guru. But now, it’s time to tell the world: we’ve just added a new app called Drive to the Knowledge Guru platform.
Remind me again: what is Knowledge Guru?
We’re glad we asked. Knowledge Guru is a platform of apps that use game-based learning, adaptive learning and microlearning to increase knowledge retention and improve performance. Learning science built into the platform helps learners say and do the right thing at the right time, in situations when remembering really matters.
We use Knowledge Guru to add engaging training experiences and effective reinforcement into the curriculums we create for our clients in a fast, cost-effective way. We also have a growing base of subscribers who have internal training teams that use Knowledge Guru for a variety of training needs.
Our new video has a full description of the platform:
Ok, got it. Now, what about Drive?
Knowledge Guru Drive is a training reinforcement tool for sales reps, and it will be added to our Knowledge Guru customers’ existing subscriptions. We’re already piloting Drive with some of our custom services clients.
Built for Sales Reps
Many of our Knowledge Guru customers use the platform to train sales reps. Drive is for them: it includes a variety of minigames specifically designed to teach topics like comparing against competitors, objection handling, features and benefits, and responding to customer questions.
Sales reps take a short confidence assessment the first time they open Drive. As they play minigames, Drive compares reps’ perceived confidence against their actual performance on your training topics and customizes their experience accordingly to help them achieve mastery.
Knowledge Guru Drive was designed with busy sales reps in mind. The app delivers reps a “Daily 3” of minigames that take about five minutes to play. If they have more time, they can hone their skills in the practice area.
Drive’s minigames are simple, elegant and fun. Clients who have piloted Drive have commented that “even our kids would think this is cool.” That’s high praise, and we’ll take it.
Drive is available as a smartphone app in the iOS and Android stores. While reps can play it on the web on most devices, it was designed from the ground up as a smartphone experience.
Drive is like a fitness tracker for training content. As reps progress, they get detailed personal stats on their perceived confidence versus their actual performance on each learning objective.
Simple Creation and Editing
Like all Knowledge Guru apps, Drive comes with a game creation wizard that is easy to use. Trainers can quickly create, edit and launch Drive experiences with our web-based authoring tool.
