Adobe Systems, a software solutions provider, has announced that Royal Philips Electronics, a healthcare solutions provider, has deployed its Acrobat Connect Professional software to provide 135,000 registered users of its proprietary Healthcare Learning Management System with synchronous training, video conferencing, and web seminar clinical and technical programs.
The company has seen Acrobat Connect Professional enhance the training experience, while at the same time complement the onsite training held at customer locations in more than 100 countries and Philips Global Training Centers in Europe, Asia and North America. Royal Philips Electronics develops over 100 training modules annually, many of which employ synchronous elements. The ability to archive seminars will make these synchronous elements available to people unable to attend the live sessions and provide supplemental refresher training as well.
Royal Philips Electronics seamlessly integrated Acrobat Connect Professional software into its in-house SCORM-compliant Learning Management System. Incorporating synchronous elements into its specialized healthcare education programs enables the organization to more securely deliver training programs globally without limitations of connecting through firewalls or requiring software downloads, which represent an obstacle for many healthcare institutions. The ubiquitous Adobe Flash Player software makes it easy for users, content authors and technical staff to use.
