NetDimensions, a global provider of performance, knowledge and talent management systems, recently announced that it’s award winning mobile application, NetDimensions Talent Slate, now supports the WIndows 10 operating system. NetDimensions Talent Slate 2.0, the latest addition of the company’s mobile app, was developed based on the Xamarin cross-platform development framework. For those who are unfamiliar with Xamarin, it is a Microsoft-owned software company that builds native mobile apps for multiple platforms.
NetDimensions Talent Slate is a mobile learning application for iPad and Android tablets that enables organizations to make full use of their mobile device investments by distributing and tracking learning content, news, and reference materials anytime, anywhere. It is also available on iPhones and Android smartphones as a powerful performance support tool.
According to Scott Tompkins, Mobile Development Manager at NetDimensions, the Xamarin framework, combined with some unique application architecture of their own, allows NetDimensions to achieve native application-level performance on all major mobile platforms, with minimal platform-specific development work.
Already available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablet devices, NetDimensions Talent Slate 2.0 also includes support for Microsoft Surface Pro devices as well as laptop/desktop computers running on Windows 10.
