CanDoGo(TM) Unveils On-Demand Coaching & Mentoring Solutions
New Company Provides a Fresh Approach to Employee Development and Training to Deliver Immediate Results
CHICAGO – October 15, 2007 – CanDoGo, a provider of professional development services for organizations and their employees, today announced broad availability of its on-demand coaching and training solutions. The company offers a web-based subscription service that enables organizations and their people to receive advice from a panel of experts, covering a wide variety of relevant work-related, business or professional topics such as sales coaching, power proposals, leadership skills, motivation and much more.
CanDoGo has secured exclusive rights to deliver this advice and coaching from more than 120 authors, speakers and professional trainers in a whole new way. The company converts traditional long-form material into short, meaningful advice, known as ‘CanDoGo InsightsTM’. This expert advice is delivered on-line and on-demand, making it easy for the modern workforce to get the answers they seek and apply this knowledge on the spot to solve today’s business problems.
“Offering my distributed sales force the immediate guidance, training and mentoring they need is a challenge I face on a daily basis,” said Bob Neeser, vice president sales with Sage Software in Scottsdale, Arizona. “CanDoGoTM offers relevant training content to help my sales teams shorten their sales cycles, create better proposals and improve their conversion rates. My colleagues and I have noticed a tangible, positive impact on Sage’s business from using CanDoGo’s resources.”
“It is second nature for us to obtain advice in our personal lives every day,” said Dave Batt, CEO of CanDoGo and former executive at Microsoft and Sage Software. “However, timely guidance in the business world is harder to come by. CanDoGo delivers expert advice in a way that appeals to all levels of the workforce.”
CanDoGo’s customers purchase subscriptions to access advice and coaching from the experts from anywhere they work. CanDoGo Insights are delivered in a ubiquitous manner as text, audio and video and presented within a multitude of delivery options, designed to appeal and be accessible to people wherever they work.
Subscribers can seek advice from Microsoft Office applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Additionally, subscribers can access CanDoGo Insights from their corporate Web portals, from third-party applications like Customer Relationship Management (CRM) or Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) systems, from their PDA/Mobile devices or from the CanDoGo Web subscription portal directly.
“Our research indicates a need for ‘in context’ information as a top requirement for businesses,” said Sheryl Kingstone, analyst with Yankee Group. “Solutions that can help address this need and provide information appropriate to an employee’s current task, make this more practical and appealing to the modern workforce.”
