PENSACOLA, Fla., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Smart Horizons and APCO International released a new version of their Expectations Evaluation Software product. In addition to comprehensive software that streamlines the process of writing evaluations, now supervisors will be able to manage and track employee training and certification with the same ease.
"We are excited and proud to release this version of Expectations," said Program Manager, Nikia Anderson. "The training and certification tool is going to be an important asset to agencies. Now, managers will have an easy way to track a new employee's progress in learning the skills required to perform their assigned tasks. It is also going to be an instrument for making improvements to training by identifying areas that are deficient."
Expectations, developed in partnership with APCO International, includes over 70 predefined criteria based on the San Jose model. The software provides an easy way to handle the tedious task of the evaluation process. Criteria can be modified to meet the specific needs of the agency, providing administrators with valuable information for reducing turnover and retaining valuable assets.
