Geetesh: Tell us more about yourself and Articulate.
Gabe: With thousands of customers in more than 75 countries, Articulate is the recognized world leader in elearning software tools. As Director of Customer Support and Community — see link here… , my job is to keep our customers happy long after the sale by providing the best technical support and online resources possible.
We believe strongly in the power of viral marketing, so our success is built upon not just outstanding products, but a stellar experience with every customer interaction. I’ve been publishing on the Web and supporting software for more than a decade, and Articulate customers are by far the most passionate users I’ve encountered.
Our award-winning flagship product, Articulate Presenter 5, converts PowerPoint to Flash and allows authors to create compelling e-learning courses (SCORM 1.2 and 2004 certified, and AICC compliant) by incorporating audio, video, quizzes, live Web sites, and more.
Our other award-winning products include:
- Articulate Quizmaker 2 — quickly create Flash-based quizzes
- Articulate Engage — easily add stunning interactive content to your e-learning courses
- Articulate Knowledge Portal — host, manage, and track Articulate-powered e-learning content
- Articulate Online — effectively track e-learning activity without the usual cost and hassle
I can’t wait for our customers to see Articulate Online, which is currently being beta tested and receiving much praise, as well as our other unannounced products. The market will be blown away, and these products will further secure our position as the #1 elearning tools vendor in the world.
