Mindflash is a simple and robust cloud-based learning
management system that is widely used for customer and
employee training by businesses of all sizes. It simplifies the
process of employee training and allows businesses to
measure the amount of money they spend on the training
annually. Moreover, as a platform hosted in the cloud, it
eliminates the need to download, install and maintain a
system. Mindflash allows users to create courses using the
popular and commonly used programs such as PowerPoint,
Word, PDF, audio and video tools. When offering training, you
can keep the user data as well as training history and more in
the platform’s free data storage.

test retention. Instructors have access to pre-made tests with different
designs. Some options include labeling pictures, true or false questions,

scores, which specific questions were the most troublesome and has an
overview tab for a general snapshot.

6. 4.0 Advantages of Mindflash
Increased Employee Engagement: A well-trained worker is often more
confident and productive. In addition to providing standardized
information across an organization, it provides development
opportunities so employees feel their company is investing in them. The
interactive tests and high-quality lessons can make the process more
interesting and dynamic.

questions, assisting with organizational concerns and seeing where
improvement is most needed. Workers can also use single sign-on
functionality through Active Directory, Google Apps, OKTA, Salesforce or

across many devices and has extensive data security. Therefore, it allows
more of the workforce to work from home while an organization can still
monitor results and help everyone stay engaged.

standards and provides course completion verification for future audits
or documentation use. Instructors can generate reports where necessary.
