BlueBottleBiz has announced partnerships with two video-based training and learning solutions providers: Access Training Media, a Los Angeles-based distributor and producer of video-based training that addresses real-world corporate challenges, and SONIC Performance Support, a global provider of web-based video learning solutions focused on information technology.

BlueBottleBiz, the first collaborative learning platform for business professionals, today announced its recent partnerships with two additional video-based training and learning solutions providers. The new partners are Access Training Media, a Los Angeles-based distributor and producer of video-based training that addresses real-world corporate challenges, and SONIC Performance Support, a global provider of web-based video learning solutions focused on information technology. 

As a result of these partnerships, BlueBottleBiz members gain access to more than 500 videos covering topics such as leadership, management, customer service, software and Microsoft Office.

With 95 percent of organizations using video-based learning to some degree (Brandon Hall Group), it is crucial that employees are provided instant access to video content for professional development. The BlueBottleBiz library – which features more than 40,000 assets, available 24/7 – is comprised of 30 percent video. 

“We pride ourselves in offering the most expansive business content library around the world to our members,” said Christian Smythe, head of content and partner strategy. “Thanks to our valuable video content partners, like Access Training Media and SONIC Performance Support, BlueBottleBiz is able to provide the convenience and flexibility that accompanies video-based learning to the workplace, and to busy professionals.”

Pairing native resources with collaborative tools and a global network, BlueBottleBiz equips its members with a continuous, social learning environment that allows them to share knowledge and develop new ideas directly with colleagues and industry experts. With desktop, iOS and Android apps, members consume and share content within their network at any time, on the go. 

"BlueBottleBiz has developed a vast library of professional media for talent development,” said Jack Donaldson, president of Access Training Media. “We're very impressed with its unique and elegant interface that makes organizing and sharing content easy for organizations. Our video collection is a perfect fit for this platform, and we’re very excited to be a part it."

Since its inception, BlueBottleBiz has earned the trust of 400 publishers and content providers. With new resources being added daily, the collaborative learning platform hosts the largest and fastest-growing business content library available to the global workforce. With the help of content partners, BlueBottleBiz offers a variety of resources covering some of today’s most popular business and industry-related topics.

"You can learn from books and you can learn from videos. In the past, these were two separate worlds, but with BlueBottleBiz this changed,” said Jörn Oelze, owner of SONIC Performance Support. “SONIC’s engaging videos around office productivity are matched to book excerpts in very focused Discovery Paths, which you can follow to learn about a specific topic in the shortest amount of time – with a great mixture of different media.”
