Zapoint, Inc. Announces Management Changes

Zapoint, Inc. announced that it has named Joseph Brooks as chief executive officer (CEO). Brooks takes over the helm from Chris Twyman, who served as Zapoint's CEO for seven years and now retains his title as founder and chairman to focus on forging strategic partnerships for the company. Brooks joined Zapoint in 2007 when he teamed up with Twyman to kick-start the company. Since its inception, Brooks has played an instrumental role in developing Zapoint's patented technology. As general manager and chief operating officer, Brooks managed customer relations, led the product and commercial teams based in the United States and Europe, and contributed to the company's overall growth. Prior to joining Zapoint, Brooks worked in the real estate industry in London managing multiple sales teams and focusing on leadership and performance development.

Zapoint, Inc. Launches Next Generation of SkillsMapper

Zapoint, Inc. launched the next generation of SkillsMapper and will showcase the technology at the 15th Annual Corporate Learning Week (CLN Week), now underway at Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Orlando, Florida. This latest innovation of SkillsMapper combines advanced career pathing technology with world-class learning and assessment content from Kelley Executive Partners, the executive education arm of The Kelley School of Business, the highly ranked business school of Indiana University. Demonstrations will be available at the Zapoint booth (number 6) as well as the Kelley Executive Partners booth (number 5). Early this year, Kelley and Zapoint worked with CareerBuilder to create the Moneyball service that CareerBuilder launched this past June. After CareerBuilder brought them together, Kelley and Zapoint decided to pursue an additional partnership to meet corporate requirements for management training. The alliance extends SkillsMapper's platform by delivering the industry's first comprehensive career management and learning tool to organizations looking to strengthen the skills and experiences of their workforce, increase engagement and retention, and gain a competitive advantage within their market place.

Zapoint Announces Strategic Alliance with Indiana University's Kelly School of Business

Zapoint, Inc. announced plans to supercharge its SkillsMapper solution with the faculty content of Kelley Executive Partners, the executive education arm of the Kelley School of Business, a business school of Indiana University. The joint efforts of both organizations will provide companies with a cost-efficient and accessible means of educating their workforce. Kelley's learning and assessment content combined with Zapoint's advanced career pathing technology will enable companies to customize employees' training courses while aligning with strategic organizational needs and priorities. The new product version will offer pre-loaded, bite-sized Master's level training courses, broken into five different disciplines - Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Supply Chain and HR Management. Employees will have a chance to take courses at their own pace to improve their skills in key areas. As employees complete learning tracks and levels, they will be awarded certificates and their profiles within SkillsMapper will be updated to reflect the skills they have developed and strengthened. Customized industry content is also available to companies who use the system.
