Alchemy Receives U.S. Patent Award for Interactive Training System

Friday, March 22, 2013

Audience Response System Enables Simultaneous Multi-Group Training

Alchemy Systems, LP, the global leader in food and workplace safety training, has announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded the company a patent for its “Multimedia Training System and Apparatus.” Alchemy filed the patent application in 2010.

The patent specifically covers the Audience Response System for Alchemy’s interactive and hand-held training program SISTEM® (Standard Industry Skills Training and Education Media). The platform is unique because the training and the testing can occur simultaneously in different locations at any time on the same frequency—a capability lacking with other training disciplines. SISTEM enables instructors to determine the level of worker comprehension instantaneously through hand-held remote controls and respond accordingly at any time during the training.

“The award of our patent confirms SISTEM’S uniqueness, innovation and value in enhancing food safety in the workplace,” said Jeff Eastman, CEO at Alchemy. “It is also a testament to our interactive capabilities that convey the knowledge and verify worker comprehension essential for compliance with federal and state regulations.

SISTEM and its patent represent a critical advancement in learning and comprehension particularly with its immediate assessment of learners’ responses. “ELearning does not offer this automated type of delivery system and its evaluation capabilities,” said Archie Barrett, Alchemy chief technology officer. “We can take large groups of people, equally train all of them, assess their progress immediately and follow-up later to make sure learning is being applied on the job.”

Alchemy’s expertise helps customers across the international food chain build an effective food safety culture, with nearly six million courses taken on the SISTEM platform in 2012 alone. Their unique training platform, SISTEM, continues to respond and evolve to meet the newest industry regulations and standards.
