being able to create sophisticated applications by visually
linking blocks of program functions like a flowchart rather
than having to learn a programming or scripting language.
Then imagine being able to move those flowchart elements
around, effortlessly creating entirely new programs simply
by changing the way the flowchart elements are connected.
Our products enable you to do just that! onViz lets you
concentrate on how you want to present your information
— without getting bogged down in the technicalities
of programming and scripting.

With the increasing demand for e-Learning applications, onViz provides a solution to quickly create and revise comprehensive applications that integrate rich media with interactivity. onViz includes reporting and user tracking features that enable you to track each learner's progress.
|Electronic Manuals, Textbooks & Online Documentation
Create your own integrated applications that can be
used as combination training and reference programs,
maintenance manuals, and "on-line help" by
providing knowledge as people need it - and because
it's in an electronic format, the information can be
made instantly available using portable computers, shop
floor computers, Internet appliances, and more.
Create and implement
internal training programs that let users learn at
their own pace - or receive the information as they
need it, such as an Electronic Performance Support
System (EPSS). Training and testing large numbers
of people can be done efficiently and cost-effectively.
The nature of computer-based learning - its availability at any time and any place - makes it an ideal resource for on-the-job training.
A Kiosk is a powerful interactive communications
tool that uses multimedia technology to dispense information
to a specific audience, delivering your message using
a combination of video, graphics, audio and text. A
kiosk can be designed as a presentation housed in a
stand-alone computer or delivered as a presentation
on a laptop computer at a client's site.
Games are fun and informative. What better way to
familiarize people with your products, services, or
a city and it's history than presenting interesting
facts in a fun, engaging format?
