On March 18, 2018, dreams of “a brave new world” in the autonomous vehicle industry came to a screeching halt. On that day, 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg had the misfortune of becoming the first recorded fatality of an accident involving an autonomous vehicle. One of Uber’s experimental cars, a Volvo XC90, sensed the pedestrian crossing the street but decided against taking evasive action.Read More›
Using employee training to cultivate initiative, innovation and excellence in an increasingly competitive market
In today’s age of innovation, initiative is key. But how does one find, maintain and encourage the kind of employees who take personal interest in driving their company forward? The truth of the matter is, that initiative and driven employees are never simply found, maintained or even encouraged to be a contributive part of an organization.Read More›
Why just tell when you can show and tell? “Level up” your guides by embedding an iframe into any step.
Sometimes, you just need that little extra to help an idea come across perfectly. If only you could incorporate an external source–that help guide, or knowledge base article–to go with that step in the guide… Well, with Iridize’s embedding iframe feature you can now incorporate external aids and provide users with exactly what they need to know, at the exact moment they need it, without having to direct them to go outside your system.
But the buck, as they say, doesn’t stop here. Embedding an iframe doesn’t just allow you to show materials to your users, it also facilitates interaction. For example, Provide your users with a survey that you’ve created (in SurveyMonkey or in Google Sheets) directly over the interface of your product. The immediacy of this option enables you to collect user input at the most accurate moment, instead of retroactively. What more, Iridize’s other features allow you to make progress contingent on cooperation. In this way, you can make sure your audience will not take shortcuts along the way, and ensure their completion of the guide with all the steps along the way.Read More›
Could commercial onboarding solutions be the future of public sector service providers?

What is the best way to gather information about people’s thoughts and opinions on certain matters? Asking them, of course. Which is why we have developed our very own polling tool.
Now you can poll your users to understand a bit more about their preferences and challenges. Many of our clients use polls as a feedback tool, to maintain important interaction with their customers. Others match polls with HR, and use it for internal communications (“where would everyone like to have the New Year’s party?”). Others still, use our Polls feature as a multiple choice testing mechanism. In this way, not only can our clients receive feedback from end users, but they can also ascertain understanding.
Whatever your goal may be, polls are a quick and easy tool to get important information – just go to the Manage menu (top left in your dashboard) and select Polls.Read More›
So, you’ve invested time and effort in creating a help center, or maybe even a real-time guide, but your users still lose their way and give up, or turn to support? Maybe the reason is that the correct way to navigate through the product still remained unclear. Iridize’s enhanced Step Settings feature gives you ultimate control over users’ learning process and allows you to ensure your users never “stray off the path.”
Generally speaking, users like quick and easy solutions to problems they encounter. Salespeople need to focus on selling, instead of navigating through CRMs. But how can you ensure users follow all the steps required of them, and not get lost, or skip important steps along the way? How can you reduce churn rates and the number of support requests? The answer is – by reducing the number of “unknowns” which new users face between point A and point Z. This understanding has led Iridize to develop the most advanced Step Settings tool in the market as part of its performance support solutions. These are just some of our clients’ favorite options:
GDPR is coming into force on May 25, 2018, and we are READY. Here is everything you need to know.
What is GDPR
GDPR is an acronym which stands for General Data Protection Regulation. The new data protection law is designed to give individuals better control over their personal data, and to establish a unified approach to online privacy across the European Union. In other words, GDPR is actually a standard for the handling of private information, with some related legal implications–not unlike HIPAA and SOX. It is important to point out that although the new standard is only applicable in Europe, organizations located outside EU are also subject to these regulations when dealing with EU citizens.Read More›
