Introducing eBridge: An Online Review And Collaboration Tool To Optimize eLearning Course Development +eLearning Industry 

All of us who are in the business of custom eLearning development are aware of its increasing complexity and the intrinsic need to have an agile process to keep pace with increasing customer expectations. Customers today are looking for just-in-time online status updates, faster turn-around time, and reduced cost for better and enhanced learning designs. Often, the development process includes reviews from multiple Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and reviewers working from different regions and time zones across the globe without access to a single source to review and get online status updates. Due to varied needs of customers, you possibly use multiple authoring tools to craft the required custom online training solution. In an ideal world, you would love to provide a single interface for all of these (both to your development teams and customers), won’t you? Let us introduce eBridge, which does just that.
