Wistia Announces Results of Video in Corporate Training Survey

Dover, MA (PressExposure) January 19, 2009 -- In particular, the survey results suggest a real need to make production, distribution and tracking of video training content much more efficient for businesses. If businesses are to wholeheartedly adopt video training, this must be accomplished without compromising investments that have already been made in equipment and skills (for content creation).

The survey results also concluded that there are numerous benefits to using video training, specifically in cost-effectiveness and convenience. Finally, the survey establishes that there is great demand for video training in business, but that better tools are required if video training is to realize its full potential as an integral part of training. Video is already recognized as being extremely cost-effective as a communications tool, allowing companies to share knowledge with employees. There is little doubt that video is the future of business communication.

To be widely accepted as a training tool, however: • video production and distribution still needs to become easier and less costly • sharing needs to become more secure and auditable • engagement needs to become measurable in detail

The Wistia market research report is available at: [http://wistia.com/documents/video_training_report.pdf] "Video has been widely adopted in many areas of corporate training, but it's not necessarily an easy or smooth process – there are still a few hurdles," said Wistia CEO and co-founder Chris Savage.

They also understand that tracking and measuring the viewership of video is critically important to the training process. This is why our customers find Wistia so compelling.
