XOOLI Delivers Award-Winning Platform for Talent Development and Training in Highly Regulated Industries for the Mobile Modern Workforce
Mobile Game-like Talent Management and Compliance Training Platform from Morf Media Inc. Allows Financial Services Companies to Author, Train and Test on Company Policy, Industry and Regulatory Know-How with Smart Results
At Wall Street banks and financial services organizations, new hires and analysts must undergo intensive training and orientation programs on company policy, industry terms and regulatory mandates. Performance pressure to pass the training is high. Delivering an easy, fast and fun way to get training done on a smartphone or mobile device is what Morf Media Inc. today announced it is developing with its XOOLI ™ Financial Services.
“Morf Media technology is igniting big change in the future health of wealth-management firms and financial services companies with XOOLI Financial Services,” said Axel Von Schubert, cofounder and president of J.P. Capital Investments Ltd. “XOOLI meets a pent up demand for technology that allows companies to link individual performance to organizational strategy in a way that’s easy, effective, socially oriented and mobile.” XOOLI™ Financial Services is a secure training platform as a service with a library of courses, including Anti-money Laundering and Cyber Security courses, developed by industry experts. XOOLI has built-in authoring capabilities, analytics, social challenge and gamified feedback features, measurement and monitoring tools—all accessible anytime, anywhere via a mobile device.
The XOOLI platform allows authors to easily add game elements to courses to encourage a habit of learning, such as daily Morf TRIVIA questions about a new compliance rule. The results can be published as a social news event which helps drive engagement across a department and organization. The Morf Platform measures results on an individual’s performance and provides recommended resources for fortifying an individual’s learning results. It leverages a variety of digital media, like videos, text to voice, virtual challenge coaches and rewards while delivering industry specific training—all measured and tracked by the platform’s reporting system. Now, new hires, loan officers and analysts can engage in company, industry and compliance training in a manner consistent with the way people want to learn, anytime, anywhere, and the way companies want to develop and manage their talent.
“Passing company training is a critical play in a lucrative career as a professional and as an analyst in the financial services industry,” said Roy Hanif, founder and chief revenue officer at Morf Media Inc. “Even an hour of critical training might be procrastinated until the last minute with old school approaches. We set out to change the training experience with XOOLI™ by making it easy to do on a mobile device with interactive modules that reinforce learning and achievement with rewards. Many companies are using our platform to provide daily Morf TRIVIA-like training games that level up to incentives—all designed to keep their employees, managers and executives abreast of new policies while on the go.”
Global Life Sciences Companies Choose FDA Investigation Training with a Risk Driven Approachfrom Morf Media Inc. and World Compliance Seminars
FDA Expert Morf Media Inc. Chief Compliance Officer Angela Bazigos
Delivers New Training on Preparing for, Hosting and Following up on FDA
Inspections – Available Live, Online and Via Mobile Devices
Impacting global manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceuticals to biologics and biotech products, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to expand its powerful regulatory oversight. While international agencies often look to and adopt FDA guidelines, manufacturers around the world are seeking a better way to manage if not prepare for FDA investigation. Morf Media Inc. and World Compliance Seminars today announced they are delivering a simpler, better and more effective way for companies to get the FDA investigation training they need to perform at their best with a risk driven approach.
The comprehensive FDA Inspection Overview training course is available as a live seminar on December 3-4, 2015 in Boston and on February 4-5, 2016 in San Diego , online for mobile devices via Morf Media Inc. and coming in early 2016, on the Morf Training App for tablets and smartphones.
“Using a risk driven approach, we are helping life sciences companies get ready in advance of the visit to address the key areas of concern including corrective action or CAPA, risk management, vendor controls, and adverse event reporting during inspections,” said Angela Bazigos, CCO Morf Media Inc. “Together with our worldclass partner, World Compliance Seminars, companies get the compliance training they need to understand what their regulatory risks are and to execute on plans to effectively address any gaps.”
While the course focuses on FDA inspections, inspections by other regulatory authorities such as European and Japanese regulatory authorities will be compared and contrasted to an FDA Inspection. The training is designed to provide proactive guidance to quality assurance regulatory affairs and validation auditors, risk managers, compliance officers and senior management. Bazigos presents best practices and tools to empower life sciences managers and executives to simplify management of the following:
• Assess quality system readiness for FDA inspection
• Identify compliance risks • Mitigate before, during and after the inspection
• Follow up procedures to FDA Form 483, issued to at the conclusion of an inspection when an investigator(s) has observed any conditions that in their judgement may constitute violations of the Food Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act and related Acts.
• Responses to warning letters
“The FDA inspection is one of the critical measures for success for your product and your organization as a whole,” added Bazigos. “This proven course will provide participants with the knowledge and the tools to build a solid foundation for passing FDA inspections from the perspective of the FDA inspector-valuable information to share with your teams that will benefit your company today and in the future.”
Online training for this course is available from Morf Media Inc. The company is developing its mobile training platform—XOOLI™ for companies of any size to offer cost-effective mobile compliance training to their staff and partners on their smartphone or tablets.
The FDA Investigation training course is among a library of certified courses that is delivered in an innovative way to support learning, engagement, measurement and achievement for professionals on the go. “We are building XOOLI to serve as the world’s easiest to use compliance training platform, made social, mobile, fast and fun,” said Roy Hanif, founder of Morf Media Inc. U.S.A. “With its mobile game-like three minute courses supported by a variety of media including text to voice and video for offline training, a framework of powerful analytics and reporting, life sciences companies and leading training companies, like World Compliance Seminars, are coming to us to provide training for the global mobile workforce anytime, anywhere.”
