Brainshark is also launching its Analytics Dashboard, giving users deep insight into content effectiveness, viewing data and patterns, and social activity. The dashboard combines different data on presentation views and usage into intuitive, visual representations – all on a single screen.

An important component of the Sales, Marketing, Learning and HR Cloud packages, the Analytics Dashboard will also be included in all current Brainshark subscriptions.
With the Analytics Dashboard, users can instantly assess the effectiveness of their sales, marketing, training and other content. The dashboard brings to life all the important data Brainshark collects, making content even more useful and actionable.
It’s easy for sales reps to see, for example, how their content is performing and when interest is hot, while managers can tell which reps are the most active and getting the best results. Marketing professionals can monitor video content performance by number of views and/or audience retention – quickly identifying successful presentations and under-performers, and taking appropriate action. In addition, organizations can see how and whether eLearning presentations are being consumed, reinforcing proper training. Users can also observe trends over time, so they can alter presentation content or target audiences to ensure maximum impact.
Additional dashboard features include:
Role-based viewing. Content authors, managers and administrators can each access key metrics – helping improve the impact of presentations for themselves, their team or the entire organization:
- Authors: Have the ability to view usage data and charts related to their own presentations to help identify successful content and hot prospects, and assess overall presentation effectiveness.
- Managers: Can view both team and individual activity, letting them identify and promote best practices.
- Administrators: Can view activity across the organization to gauge overall content effectiveness
Activity feed: Updated in real-time, this stream provides information on content that has been recently watched, created, shared and more, offering a play-by-play of activity and helping users stay abreast of trends.
Insights on audience engagement – Users can identify the average percent of slides viewed by their audience to determine and improve presentation impact, and click the report graphics to see more details, including which presentations are generating the most engagement.
Geolocation:Colored maps show globally where content is being viewed, helping users determine reach and most receptive audiences.
Viewing charts: At a glance, users can see which presentations are the most popular, as well as the most recently viewed, and then drill down to see the specifics on who viewed the content, when and for how long.
In-depth report access: With a single click, users enter an environment where they can create detailed reports and choose the fields for inclusion, apply advanced filters and even schedule reports for regular delivery.
