Innovation and Feature set distinguishes Learning Pool on 2020 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning

Learning Pool is thrilled to announce that it has retained its position as Core Leader in this year’s Fosway 9-Grid™ with advancing trajectories in Market Presence, Performance and Potential.

The Fosway 9-Grid™ is a leading, five-dimensional market analysis model that assesses the position of different solutions and providers in the European Learning market. It ranks these solutions by their potential, performance, market presence, total cost of ownership and future trajectories.

Learning Pool is the only Digital Learning provider in the Core Leader category to deliver solutions with a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for customers. This placement recognizes Learning Pool’s ongoing financial performance, commitment to innovation in learning with its tech and continued focus on delivering a value for money experience for client organizations and their learners.

 “Learning Pool’s continued growth and customer performance have seen its position further advance as a Core Leader in the 2020 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning, whilst retaining a focus on cost. Following several acquisitions, it is also successfully innovating its product offering which is also recognized by its inclusion as a Potential Challenger on the 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems.”

                     David Wilson, CEO, Fosway

Fosway 9-Grid™ is a completely unique market analysis model, offering independent research and insights in Europe for over 20 years. Referencing Fosway’s explanation of the model, providers in the Core Leader zone are characterized as having a solid track record of enterprise win rate, customer delivery and advocacy. 

Duncan Shores, Learning Pool’s Chief Commercial Director said:

Advancing our position as a Core Leader for Digital Learning vindicates our commitment to improving organizational performance with innovative and cost- effective solutions. It’s a great endorsement for our team of experts who work hard to create inspiring content and smart-tech solutions that engage and empower more than 3 million learners worldwide.”

Learning Pool released its Learning Platform last year and is delighted to also feature on Fosway’s 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems as a Potential Challenger on a forward trajectory, recognizing the company’s acceleration in platform growth and performance over the last 12 months.  Based on the combination of LXP, LRS and Content Authoring into a single solution, Learning Pool’s Platform has seen the company advance significantly in terms of potential, compared to its relative position last year.

Ben Betts, Chief Product Officer (CPO) commented:

“We’re setting the pace for what a lower cost LXP can achieve in terms of our feature set and potential; competing with folks who have a much higher cost of ownership. So, we’re innovating to a position of potential challenger, but doing it whilst retaining our core focus of being excellent value for money. “

Learning Pool is exhibiting at Learning Technologies 12-13th February 2020, on stand D20. The team will be showcasing the latest in learning solutions.
