GyrusAim Highlighted Features

 

Pending List – A very useful addition to GyrusAim that allows for the storing of a list of students interested in a course, even if no classes yet exist for the course.  These students can be added to a course either by managers, or by the students themselves on the course catalog.  When enough students are signed-up, they can be enrolled directly from this list to classes for very easy full-cycle enrollment management of students.  If a student's enrollment is cancelled they are moved back to the Pending List.  Coming soon is a Pending List report to show a list of courses by number of students on the Pending List for even easier management of enrollments.

 

 Twitter Dashlet – A brand new dashlet has been created that can be linked to a Twitter account.  This feature is designed to allow a company to display its Twitter information directly to users on their dashboard, thus always keeping them informed of the latest updates.  Combined with the existing Message Center feature, keeping employees up-to-date with the latest company information has never been easier.

 

Google Analytics – The ability to deeply analyze all GyrusAim web-traffic is available via the new Google Analytics integration.  The integration works by connecting the GyrusAim site to all of the capabilities of Google Analytics.  The reporting possibilities are nearly endless.  For example, using this new feature, the ability is now available to analyze the most popular eLearning courses based on user-access count, hours spent, and more!  Please explore these possibilities by reading more about Google Analytic here.

 

 Reports – Lots of new reports have been added directly to the GyrusAim interface, located exactly where you need them in: assessments, certifications, classes, costs, courses, employees, evaluations, jobs, learning objects, questions, organizations, ratings, resources, roles & permissions, and skills. These reports list out the data in each of these areas, thus enabling you to easily verify it during implementation or for ongoing maintenance of your training data.

 

EMail – EMail enhancements added in Manage My People and IDP allow managers to click an icon and email learners a list of unobtained skills.  This new function, combined with the ability to create personalized email notifications creates an extremely easy method by managers to remind their users of skills that still need to be obtained.

 

Help – New Help icon added and with better visibility and more helptext available!  Help is constantly being added, but in this version, a special effort was made to expand the available help topics.

Family HealthCare Network Selects GyrusAim Learning Management Systems

Richmond, VA · January 9, 2013.  Gyrus Systems, a leader in the Learning Management Systems (LMS) announced today that the Family HealthCare Network has selected the GyrusAim Learning Management System to enhance the company’s efforts to provide excellence in employee training and compliance.

 

Family HealthCare Network is a community-based organization based in California. As a leader in community based healthcare, Family HealthCare Network has multiple facilities as well as supporting staff. Having the ability to deliver learning to a widely dispersed workforce is essential to Family HealthCare Network’s business. Additionally, being a healthcare company, Family HealthCare Network must comply with stringent regulatory requirements. Gyrus Systems helps companies like Family HealthCare Network gain a competitive edge by shortening training time, increasing workforce proficiency, effectiveness, and reducing the risk of business disruptions due to non-compliance and turnover at critical positions. To meet both their training and compliance needs, Family HealthCare Network chose Gyrus Systems’ LMS, GyrusAim.

 

By partnering with Gyrus Systems, Family HealthCare Network will have the ability to streamline learning management across the organization and utilize the validated reporting capabilities for improved compliance and audit readiness. Further, an advanced learning management solution like GyrusAim provides Family HealthCare Network with the ability to efficiently implement a complete competency management system. Of critical importance was the need to incorporate a comprehensive history of all of the training the company has provided and recorded in their legacy LMS.

 

Gyrus developed an automated process to capture 6 years of historical training records and bring them into the new GyrusAim LMS so for use both to demonstrate compliancy and as a basis upon which future training needs could be defined and managed. By migrating the historical data into the new system all training records are now available in one place removing the need to maintain and refer to a copy of the old database.
