KnowledgeSmart application


KnowledgeSmart is a skills assessment tool that companies utilise to conduct online evaluations and surveys, in order to gauge employee software proficiency and gather data on employee satisfaction.

KnowledgeSmart offers a variety of assessments covering CAD, BIM, CAM and other software categories. The platform enables companies to administer tests on software such as AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, Fusion 360 and other programmes used every day in the architecture, engineering, construction, and manufacturing industries.

Pinnacle Series and KnowledgeSmart work together seamlessly through automation. KnowledgeSmart assessments enable the identification of skills gaps, while training content within Pinnacle Series aids in bridging those gaps. Employees can undergo evaluations and use the results to automatically generate a custom learning path in Pinnacle for the relevant software. No need for managers to administer tests, review results, or manually determine which employees require specific training, this is all possible with the Pinnacle and KnowledgeSmart integration.

Interactive social features

Users can engage with and provide feedback on all content in the e-learning system by liking, sharing, and commenting. This information is kept internal to the organization, ensuring privacy and security. Additionally, administrators can create private work groups to share specific project information with selected individuals, such as external subcontractors, without providing them access to the entire e-learning interface.
