BrainStorm Introduces On-Demand Video Training Directly from the Ribbon of Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2010
BrainStorm QuickHelp add-in simplifies learning, improves productivity and speeds results for enterprise, SMB & consumer users
AMERICAN FORK, UT ― October 6, 2010 ― BrainStorm, Inc.®, a software training innovator, today announced BrainStorm QuickHelp™, an affordable cloud-based video training add-in for Microsoft Office 2007 and Office 2010. QuickHelp delivers affordable on-demand training videos directly from the Ribbon of Microsoft Office 2010 and Office 2007 applications. Providing training directly within Office, where customers can apply assistance immediately, QuickHelp aligns with Microsoft’s vision: making it simple and quick to complete tasks in Office. Consumers, small and medium-sized business (SMB) and enterprise-level users can view training videos for Office without leaving the program, so they can stay focused on their work. BrainStorm is proud to provide this quick, productivity-enhancing content inside the Office applications.
“The BrainStorm QuickHelp video training solution helps its customers be productive with Microsoft Office. It’s a great complement to our existing content for users,” said Jessica Reading, Content Publishing Director at Microsoft Corp.
Computer users can get more from their software if they know more. Most training opportunities take customers away from their work. By making short, action-oriented help available within Office, QuickHelp enables users to get better work done faster. QuickHelp extends the user benefits of BrainStorm’s highly successful Computer Based Trainings with:
- Easily Accessible Content – Instead of interrupting a colleague, browsing the web or calling technical support, users can view trainings and do their work at the same time from the QuickHelp Ribbon tab;
- Quickly Consumable Training – Each video-clip is presented in short, easy-to-understand 10 second to three minute segments, making them quick to watch and apply. Additionally, users are able to tag their favorite trainings and share them with colleagues, and can track their training histories for future access;
- Access to Tier 2 Corporate Support – The QuickHelp Ribbon add-in can be easily customized by Corporate IT staff in order to refer users to internal help tools, if needed; and
- Evolutionary Support and Learning – Unlike disc-based products, QuickHelp’s feedback control invites user content requests for continuous, relevant content updates.
“BrainStorm QuickHelp showcases industry leadership from BrainStorm, and is a dramatic innovation in the delivery of training for consumers, SMBs and enterprise customers alike.” said Eric Farr, principal of BrainStorm. “We are thrilled to extend our relationship with Microsoft to help Office users get more done during their day.”

BrainStorm QuickHelp became available on October 1, 2010, for most Office 2010 applications and for all Office 2007 applications that include the Ribbon, with over 2,000 videos/120 hours of video content.
