MUMBAI, India, November 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), the pioneer and global leader in learning solutions, has won four prestigious Brandon Hall awards this year - three gold awards for their proven solutions - 100 Seconds Learner, Serious Game Based Learning and TOPSIM and a bronze award in Simulations. This is the third straight year where TIS has won Brandon Hall Awards for its unique learning formats.

TIS won gold awards for Best Use of Performance Support, Best Learning Game, Best Sales Leadership Training Program and a bronze award for Best Custom Content category. The awards have come in for TIS' innovative product formats like the 100 Seconds Learner developed for Credit Suisse AG, a new learning format for time pressed executives. These short learning capsules, which can be organized and rated in a broadcast room, aim to enhance managerial acumen and build soft skills to deliver behavioral change.

The next product which bagged the gold is Serious Games at UnitedHealthcare. TIS' serious games open doors to a new level of learner involvement. They offer exciting training solutions that bridge the distance between 'I have to finish this training' and 'I want to finish this game!'

The third gold was awarded for TOPSIM simulation program at UnitedHealthcare. TOPSIM Simulations are advanced and comprehensive models that simulate operating environments, for instance, of a start-up, of the marketing function within a company, of the overall management of a company, of global markets, or the macro economics of a country, among others.

The bronze was awarded to the simulation program at the University of Maryland University College. Simulations are learning products based on the "learning-by-doing" philosophy. They are used to provide concise and focused insights into any subject withina short time-only 30-45 minutes.

Tij Nerurkar, COO, Tata Interactive Systems, says "We have set a new benchmark for ourselves by winning four Brandon Hall Awards this year. The recognition reaffirms TIS' commitment to excellence and our exceptional work in the ever changing space of custom learning".
