Philadelphia, PA — January 4, 2012 — Richardson, a leading global sales training and sales strategy execution firm, today announced honors received for Richardson QuickCheck™, an innovative sales training reinforcement tool. The Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Awards recognized Richardson with two gold medals: one for Best Advance in Unique Sales and Marketing Technology and the other for Best Advance in Sales Training Software Platform.

Richardson QuickCheck™ is an application designed for today’s on-the-go sales professional. It uses mobile phones and tablets to deliver daily bite-sized knowledge and training, using proven methods for learning and retaining knowledge. QuickCheck™ is powered by Qstream, a real-time learning analytics platform developed at the Harvard Medical School, and is based on psychological principles of learning.

“We are excited to offer clients our QuickCheck™ product line, and we’re proud of this recognition for innovation by Brandon Hall,” says David DiStefano, President and CEO of Richardson. “Companies make substantial investments in training and talent management within their sales organizations, yet research shows that 79% of classroom learning is forgotten within three months. QuickCheck™ helps to optimize the investment in training, making more of it stick and improving learning outcomes.”
