<p><strong>Salt Lake City </strong><br />What do AJAX and e-commerce have in common? Both of these technologies are used to improve the user experience and both are now available on Allen Communication Learning Services&#39; portals. In keeping aligned with Web 2.0 technologies, use of AJAX (asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is now part of the Allen Learning Portal and the Project Management Portal, and e-commerce capabilities are now an integrated option on the Allen Learning Portal. <br /><br />Since AJAX techniques are used to increase responsiveness of Web pages by exchanging small amounts of data in the background without reloading the entire Web page, it only seemed logical for Allen to implement the strategy in the portals. </p><p>Not only will users be loading pages faster, they also will have a better encounter with improved usability, interactivity and security. Administrators will also benefit with improved ability to manage learning, generate reports and track information. <br /><br />Along the same lines of usability and functionality, Allen added e-commerce features to its Learning Portal. Many clients were looking for users to be able to subscribe and pay for training or services while using the Allen Learning Portal. This feature set, just as all functions in the Learning Portal, can be customized to match a client&rsquo;s business objectives.<br /><br />&ldquo;The real value in any technology is discovering the biggest impact on the end users&rsquo; experience,&rdquo; stated Ken Brower, CTO of Allen Communication Learning Services. &ldquo;This philosophy compliments our focus on learner-centric applications as opposed to data-centric or technology-driven approaches.&rdquo;<br /><br />&ldquo;We are approaching Web 2.0 devoid of the hype that usually accompanies such trends,&rdquo; said Ron Zamir, CEO of Allen Communications Learning Services. &ldquo;We believe community building and collaboration are integral to training, and we look forward to implementing these technologies for our clients.&rdquo; <br /></p>
