Andy Zimmerman is the vice president and general manager for myBrainshark – Brainshark’s free site for creating, sharing and tracking multimedia presentations. He oversees myBrainshark strategy, marketing, partnerships and sales.
In this conversation, Andy discusses myBrainshark’s newly announced availability in the Google Apps Marketplace.
Geetesh: What does the availability of myBrainshark on the Google Apps Marketplace signify to you, and what does it mean for end users?
Andy: We’re pleased to have myBrainshark available through the Google Apps Marketplace, a site that makes it easy to find and deploy applications that integrate with Google Apps – the Web-based office tools hosted by Google. With more than 3 million businesses running Google Apps, this is a great forum for us to showcase our platform and provide users with a service that helps them do their jobs better.
So many people prepare presentations every day, and myBrainshark gives them a way to really invigorate their content – adding voice narration, background music, video clips, surveys, polls, attachments and more to slide decks and other documents. Our service is frequently used to engage in high-impact online video marketing; create trackable sales pitches and presentations; deliver eLearning courses for employees, customers and partners; and promote thought leadership and expertise. As Google Apps users look to improve the efficiency and results of their business communications, we’re glad to provide access to myBrainshark in a convenient, intuitive way.
Geetesh: Users of Google Apps now have a convenient way to work with voice-over led slide content which is seamlessly integrated within their existing environment – how simple will it be for them to work with myBrainshark within that environment?
Andy: Google Apps domain administrators can instantly add the myBrainshark app for free so that any of their users can use the service. Each user will then have the benefit of single sign-on convenience, with hassle-free access to myBrainshark through the universal navigation bar in their Google Apps interface. From there, Google Apps users can immediately get to work with myBrainshark, using our platform to create, narrate, share and track online video presentations. It’s as easy as that! And if they decide to upgrade to myBrainshark Pro or myBrainshark Pro Trainer, any of the users in the organization can take advantage of the advanced features in those offerings as well.
