JPL Lands Three Horizon Interactive Awards for eLearning and Business Apps


JPL recently captured three Horizon Interactive Awards for eLearning, video-based training and mobile business apps.

Carlisle Construction Materials Proposal WriterJPL received “Best in Show” in the Horizon Interactive Awards Business App category for a mobile business app created for leading commercial construction company, Carlisle Construction Materials.

The Carlisle Construction Materials Proposal Writer provides a mobile solution to estimators to expedite and improve the process of estimating roof repairs. Estimators use the proposal writer app on their iPads or Android tablets to draw on top of satellite images to denote sections of the roof that need to be repaired or replaced. Instead of taking several hours to estimate a job by taking measurements and photos to cost out repairs, estimators use the new mobile app to deliver a high quality proposal right from the rooftop.

Blackstone partnered with JPL to create orientation and implementation training that conveys the energy and value of the program. The online training course orients universities on how to implement Blackstone LaunchPad on their campus. JPL produced multiple videos to show how students use the Blackstone LaunchPad classroom space throughout the day.

VFIS 4JPL also earned a Silver Horizon Interactive Award for eLearning for the VFIS course, In the Station. VFIS partnered with JPL to develop a series of interactive courses to highlight best practices for station, driving and scene safety. Rich visuals, compelling case studies, and realistic sound effects gain the learner’s attention and engage them in material that is critical to their job duties. VFIS is the largest provider of insurance, education and consulting services to emergency service organizations such as fire departments, ambulance and rescue squads, and 911 centers.
