Rapid Intake’s Unlimited eLearning Software Model Challenges Articulate and Captivate

Rapid Intake's new SaaS e-learning software licensing model allows everyone in the organization to build interactive Flash elearning courses for one price.

Online PR News – 09-December-2009 – – Provo, Utah - Rapid Intake®, a rapid e-learning software company, has unveiled a new unlimited user licensing model that aims to help organizations break free from the traditional approach to software licensing. Most software is purchased for each person who uses the software. Rapid Intake’s innovative model puts no limits on who uses their online collaborative e-learning software, Unison™, so everyone that needs to participate can get involved in online course authoring and course review without paying for each user.

“Rapid Intake’s unlimited model encourages collaborative participation in the creation process for online computer-based training courses,” says Garin Hess, Rapid Intake CEO. “Articulate, Captivate, Lectora—they all require you to pay for each course creator. It’s an outdated model. Not so with Rapid Intake Unison. Everyone can use it, period.”

Rapid Intake calls this 'active project' licensing rather than 'user licensing'. Instead of limiting who can use the software, the license limits how many courses (known in the software as 'projects') can be edited at the same time. The concurrent 'active project' licensing represents a new consumption-based SaaS (Software as a Service) model for the e-learning industry that has traditionally been dominated by desktop user-based licensing.

Rapid Intake offers both licensing approaches, letting the customer decide which way to go.

“With our Unlimited Program, we’re all about putting the control in the customer’s hands,” says Steve Hancock, Rapid Intake President. “From our licensing model to unlimited storage and unlimited customer support and training, we provide an unprecedented value for our customers.”

Built on the Rapid Intake eLearning development platform, Unison is a web-based solution that lets designers and subject matter experts (SMEs) collaboratively capture, storyboard, develop, review, test, and publish Flash elearning courses, quizzes, tests, learning games, and simulations—without having to know Flash. Course developers can start from a PowerPoint as well as develop interactive activities from pre-built templates. All output is SCORM compliant, rich-media compatible, and works on most PC and Mac browsers.

Amber Larson, Learning Technologies Program Manager for Adventist Healthcare, reports, “Unison has been an instrumental tool in the collaboration of more than seventy-five subject matter experts with our team of e-learning developers.” She continued, “This tool has significantly contributed to our team's productivity and allows us to develop rich content for interactive eLearning.”

Among Rapid Intake Unison’s customers are such notable corporate organizations as Merck, Costco, Safeway, Sun Microsystems, Petsmart, Denny’s, and Baker Hughes as well as many well known educational and governmental institutions.
