COPENHAGEN – October 25, 2017. Milestone Systems, the global leader for open platform IP video management software (VMS), has won two Brandon Hall Group silver awards for excellence in the Learning category. The ‘Best Advance in Competencies and Skill Development’ was awarded to the Milestone Systems Learning & Performance Program, and the ‘Best Certification Program’ was credited to the Milestone Systems Training & Certification Program.
The Learning & Performance Program at Milestone has evolved significantly over recent years. Training activities have expanded beyond the classroom and the certification assessments are focused on proving the skills needed by job role in designing, installing, configuring, operating, and maintaining Milestone XProtect video management software. Training is available online, in the form of individual, self-paced eLearning modules, or in a traditional classroom setting led by an expert instructor and delivered in person all over the world. Online certification assessments can be used to identify knowledge gaps and when ultimately passed successfully, prove expertise with Milestone products.
“Milestone is very proud to receive these awards, especially considering the rigorous judging process. These awards validate the approach we have taken over the last three years in redesigning all our training and certification assessments around job competencies and the ability to perform in the field. At Milestone, we view our certifications as a brand promise to our customers regarding the knowledge and skill of any individual partner,” said Greg Willmarth, Director of Learning & Performance.
“The Learning & Performance team has worked tirelessly to develop a world-class program that allows our partners flexible options to develop the skills of their team and a certification program where they can differentiate themselves as proven experts in designing, installing, and configuring Milestone solutions. In the end, everyone benefits from a highly skilled channel,” said Willmarth. “Our customers win with better designed solutions. Our partners win by quicker installations improving profitability on each job. And of course, Milestone wins with more satisfied customers.”
The award entries were evaluated by an international panel of independent industry experts, Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and an executive leadership team. The judging was based on the following criteria: fit to the business needs, program design, functionality, innovation, and overall measurable benefits.
“Excellence Award winners symbolize the power and impact that Human Capital Management practices can have on any organization,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “Many companies can have great HCM initiatives, but the standard of excellence only applies for organizations whose practices truly benefit business. That’s what the Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards program stands for.”
Excellence Award winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference in January 2018 in Florida. Selected winners also will serve as presenters in more than 20 breakout sessions during the 3-day event. Milestone Systems shares the honors with esteemed companies such as Boeing, Accenture, SAP, Carolinas Healthcare System, Cognizant Technology, Emirates NBD, and The National Council on Behavioral Health.
