In early 2012 we released a greatly updated and expanded version of Discus Online. This new version has a completely redesigned user experience, and numerous additional features including relationship assessment, team building, and multiple customisation and branding options.
This year we expanded our iPhone range with the introduction of Discus Mobile, a free application for users of Discus 4 and Discus Online. Discus Mobile can not only display reports on a mobile device, but can even be used to complete profile questionnaires.
Late 2009 saw the release of Axiom's first application for the iPhone platform, Approach. Approach is a profiler specifically designed to help in negotiation and sales situations.
In 2008, we created a completely new way of looking at DISC profiles: Discus Personal. This unique DISC profiler provides a unique report style specifically designed to help users to discover more about themselves.
This year saw the release of Axiom's most ambitious application to date: Discus 4. Combining all of the technologies developed over Axiom's history, Discus 4 provided a complete platform for DISC profiling and interpretation. Among its host of features, it included relationship analysis, job profiling, negotiation management, team building and Internet connectivity.
A brand new Website layout and design were also revealed in 2007.
This year - Axiom's tenth anniversary - was marked by the release of a completely remodelled Discus Online service. Redesigned to take advantage of browser features that didn't exist when it was originally created, the new Discus Online provided a wealth of new features.
As the JobQ platform grew in stature, we continued to expand its power and capabilities. JobQ is a fully customisable solution, and our development efforts in 2003 were largely focussed on integrating features required by particular clients.
2002 saw the JobQ system make significant inroads into the recruitment marketplace, especially in the field of graduate recruitment. Meanwhile, our major development efforts were turned once again to the Discus stable. December saw the release of the most important new version of Discus since its original release, Discus 3.0, incorporating more than forty new or updated features. In particular, this new version saw the textual report nearly double in size.
The culmination of our most ambitious development to date: JobQ. The JobQ system uses fully integrated Internet technology to handle every stage of the recruitment process, from beginning to end. To find out more, visit the JobQ page in our Products section.
The year also saw the release of Discus 2.5, an enhanced version of our flagship profiling product.
A key year for Axiom; we were acquired by the Harrogate Group PLC. This paved the way for a phase of expansion and growth leading up to two new software releases in 2001.
We produced a major new package, Discus Team, in 1998. This revolutionary software saw the first automated application of DISC profiling to teams, rather than individuals, and expanded our range into new territory. (Note: though the Discus Team product is no longer published as a separate application, all its features are still available through Discus4 ).
Though Axiom had been involved with the Internet from its inception, we immersed ourselves in its potential this year with the launch of Discus Online, a personal profiling solution working exclusively across the Web. Discus Online's continuous growth has made it one of the success stories of the so-called 'new economy'.
As our international distribution network expanded, the need for localised software became paramount. 1997 saw the first translation of Discus, tailored for the Norwegian market. This was the first of many localised versions, which now include translations into languages as diverse as German and Chinese.
We continued to expand our markets. We also developed and refined our software, culminating in the release of Discus 2 at the end of the year.
The release of the Windows-based Discus, which was to become an international success story and our mainstay application.
Axiom was founded in January 1994, in Manchester, UK. Soon afterwards, we launched our first product, a DISC profiler named Persona, that was to become the basis for our world-beating Discus application. In late 1994, we also established a distributor in South Africa, the first of many Axiom distributors around the world.
Our first Website was also published in this year.
