WAYNE, Pa. (June 21, 2012) – Kenexa (NYSE: KNXA), a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced the launch of Kenexa Hot Lava Mobile 3.0, a leading mobile solution used to develop, manage and analyze the results of independent device communications, snack learning, performance support, sales enablement and surveys. The launch of Hot Lava Mobile 3.0 marks Kenexa’s entry into the mobile learning marketplace. Kenexa added Hot Lava Mobile to its portfolio in February as part of its acquisition of OutStart.
Kenexa Hot Lava Mobile, rated one of the best Mobile Learning tools in the business for two consecutive years, allows organizations to develop content and securely deliver it across a variety of mobile devices, ranging from basic cell phones to Smartphones to tablets. Hot Lava Mobile is available standalone or as part of Kenexa’s Learning Suite.
Kenexa Hot Lava Mobile provides users with the ability to easily develop, deliver and analyze the usage results of all mobile content and communications.
“We had to pick a platform that would allow us to build and provide our innovative mobile coaching solution, My Mobile Coach, that delivers relevant, sustainable and scalable coaching content, and the features in Hot Lava Mobile allowed us to do that,” said Maureen Haga, president of M2Execution. “We chose Hot Lava Mobile to deliver My Mobile Coach because of Kenexa’s clearly defined leadership position in providing cutting-edge mobile technology solutions. Hot Lava Mobile provided us the ability to rate the value of the coaching tips and the ability to forward coaching tips to colleagues, and could be used to extend leaders’ coaching out in the field by sharing time sensitive best practices. The reporting and analysis capabilities were also paramount in our selection and allow M2Execution to work closely with our clients to analyze usage and responses in order to improve business results. The ability to use surveys at the end of each of our coaching tips is a key differentiator for My Mobile Coach. Hot Lava was the perfect platform solution.”
“Hot Lava Mobile 3.0 provides users with an easy-to-use solution that meets the need for access to knowledge and information anywhere, any time and on any device,” said Eric Lochner, practice leader of Global Talent Management at Kenexa. “This, in turn, helps to improve business efficiencies and employee performance and helps customers create a workforce that is aligned with their strategic business objectives.”
Users of Hot Lava Mobile can develop rich mobile content through PowerPoint development that can include polls, quizzes and assessments by using the product’s plug-in tool, which also offers device-specific media conversion and streaming video. Additionally, Hot Lava Mobile dynamically renders content for any mobile device without the need to redevelop or customize content. Smartphone and tablet applications are available for Hot Lava Mobile and have the capabilities to provide offline viewing and tracking.
Users benefit from full media support, Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery, rapid deployment (less than a day) and enterprise grade security that encrypts content and secures data transmissions.
“The combination of familiar, simple content building and the ability to deliver that content seamlessly to almost any device makes Hot Lava Mobile 3.0 an impressive offering,” said David Wentworth, senior learning analyst with Brandon Hall Group. “This is the type of technology that could put an end to the confusion around mobile devices, platforms, apps and web delivery.”
