Fox Learning Systems Selects Prymak's Discovery-180(TM) Technology Assessment to Guide Search for New LMS
Date:7/14/2008

Prymak Technology Services Ideal Match for Long-Term Care

GREENSBORO, N.C., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Prymak, LLC (http://www.prymak.com) announces that it successfully completed its Discovery-180 technology assessment and selection services for Fox Learning Systems, Inc. (http://www.foxlearningsystems.com), a leading e-learning organization based in Pittsburgh, PA. Fox Learning Systems is the innovator of the Real Life, Real Learning(TM) staff education curriculum designed specifically for the long-term care industry.

For Fox Learning Systems, everything funnels through its Learning Management System (LMS), so the decision for the right product was crucial. The company retained Prymak to implement its Discovery-180 service to guide the company's search for a new LMS.

Discovery-180 is a powerful tool that assists organizations looking for new technology, software platforms, or systems by identifying and charting specific metrics for the vendor selection process. The service helped Fox Learning Systems overcome two of the biggest challenges it faced when confronted with a critical technology decision: how to select the right product from a myriad of available options and how to ensure return on investment by meeting the organization's needs for the long-term.

"With Prymak's technology leadership, we had a thorough, metrics-driven methodology guiding our selection process for the best LMS to support our state-of-the-art curriculum," said Debra Fox, president of Fox Learning Systems, Inc. "There were a variety of LMS products from which to choose; and we quickly realized the task would be both time-consuming and somewhat daunting. It was a mission-critical decision for our organization and ultimately, for our customers; as such, we couldn't afford to make the wrong selection. With Discovery-180, our team benefited from advanced decision-making that enabled us to pinpoint realistic expectations about cost, scheduling, staffing and other key factors integral to selecting and deploying an effective LMS."

According to Fox, what impressed her most about the Discovery-180 process was that it required the LMS vendors to show how they'd meet their unique specifications.

"In the past, we'd have sat through countless hours of demos -- with the vendors controlling what features they wanted us to see," said Fox. "But Discovery-180 turned those 'canned' demos into customized presentations; and it empowered vendors to showcase their product specifically to how we conduct our business. That alone made Discovery-180 a highly worthwhile investment for our organization."

For Prymak, the Fox Learning Systems project marks the company's official entree into the long-term care market. The company's technology services offerings were previously geared toward financial services; however, its services model is a perfect complement to the long-term care industry due to the market's need to improve upon technology in support of increasing regulations, growth and expansion.

"E-learning providers like Fox Learning Systems, in support of long-term care facilities, must strike a balance between helping customers lower operating costs, improve revenue, and achieve better quality of care for their elder residents," said Peter Fugaro, president of Prymak. "The right technology and systems are fundamental components to achieving these goals. By using our technology services throughout the evolution of the initiative, providers like Fox Learning Systems can, for the first time, craft a logical, systematic and proven strategy that avoids the costly delays and disruptions that are so often a part of evaluating, selecting and rolling out a new system, such as an LMS."
