Epignosis announces the launch of eFrontPro October 14, 2014

Epignosis, the leading worldwide e-learning solutions provider, is proud to announce the launch and immediate availability of eFrontPro, the newest member of our highly successful eFront product family.

Designed from scratch to take advantage of the newest web technologies, eFrontPro combines the depth of eFront with a new fluid interface, revamped reporting and support for blended learning, while maintaining the familiar ease of use and reliability that the eFront brand is known for.

We listened to our costumers and users, studied their needs and use cases, and did extensive research into what makes a good e-learning tool and where the industry's future lies. Then we went back to our labs and painstakingly re-evaluated and improved upon every aspect of eFront, updating our codebase with the latest standards and technologies.

Here are some of the ways in which eFrontPro represents a huge step forward in LMS platforms:

Redesigned UI
eFrontPro has been redesigned using the latest internet UI paradigms (responsive design, bootstrap-3, and modern HTML5 for the geeks out there). That means it works and looks great in all modern devices, desktop or mobile. We've also uncluttered the interface to provide a seamless and intuitive workflow.

Content creation made easy(er)
With eFrontPro we focused on intuitive content management, making it really easy to create and re-use your e-learning material regardless of format. You can reuse PDFs, Videos, Audios, Images, SCORM and Tincan content or leverage web material from Youtube, Vimeo, Prezi and other sources.

Reporting 2.0
With eFrontPro we revamped our reporting tools to provide more clarity and easier access to key information, including a whole new filtering system so that you see just what you need. To top it all, our new visualization of user activity offers a stunning way to report your learners' progress.

Blended learning
eFrontPro provides all the tools you need to manage a blended learning environment that includes both your online and offline training programs. With our innovate "classroom" course type you can organize and moderate physical world courses online with the same ease of use that eFront always offered for your e-learning courses.

Offline mode
Leveraging the latest web technologies, eFrontPro lets you work online and offline with equal ease. With our innovative offline content feature you can download a lesson for offline viewing directly within your browser. Perfect for catching up on your studying on an airplane or train ride.

Revamped re-selling capabilities
eFrontPro offers a wealth of e-commerce extensions, including Paypal-Pro support, and new ways to handle complex e-commerce relationships through Group-accounts, Contracts and Price Tracks.

That's just the tip of the iceberg ― we have taken the time to rethink and improve upon almost every part of eFront's operation, while still keeping the same familiar interface and focus that our users love. We believe that eFrontPro represents a huge step forward in e-learning solutions, and is a perfect fit for the needs of modern enterprises, organizations and educational institutions.

Interested? Visit www.efrontlearning.net/efrontpro today to take eFrontPro for a test drive, or contact us at www.efrontlearning.com/contact or sales@efrontlearning.net to learn more about our e-learning solutions and products.

New Website Launch July 3, 2014

We are very excited to have finally launched our new website after almost 5 months in development! You’ll see things are looking pretty spiffy around here and it’s all been completely re-coded from the ground up.

We have lived with the old design for 2 full years. During this short period of time, the old website gone from fresh to outdated (our world is accelerating, no matter if we like it or not). A few of our goals with the new website were to make it modern, faster, easier to navigate for users, and accessible from all modern devices.

We hope you enjoy the new website! Please feel free to send us comments or feedback.
