Following a period of sustained investment and growth, Learning Pool is delighted to have moved from Core Leader to Strategic Leader on the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning. It is the only provider to achieve this recognition with a lower total cost of ownership rating for clients.
Published by Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR industry analyst, the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning is a five-dimensional model that can be used to help businesses understand the relative position of solutions/providers in the learning and talent systems market. Vendors and their solutions are compared based on Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Lower Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories.
Learning Pool has improved its status from last year, moving to Strategic Leader on the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning.
Categorized as providing a rich suite of capability across a broad scope of features, Strategic Leaders have the sophistication to meet the needs of complex enterprise-scale customers. The move acknowledges Learning Pool’s continued efforts to deliver innovation in learning, the pace of Learning Pool’s year on year solution development and its ongoing dedication to customer success for a rapidly growing number of worldwide clients.
David Wilson, CEO of Fosway said, “Learning Pool has sustained its organic growth and grown through acquisition, whilst continuing to serve its European-centric customer base. Alongside an increasingly diverse portfolio, it is now recognised as a Strategic Leader on the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning.”
The move to Strategic Leader comes just two years after Learning Pool’s launch of its latest Learning Suite, Stream, and the company is the only vendor in that Zone to offer a Lower Total Cost of Ownership; supporting its commitment to providing a fantastic return on investment for client organizations and their learners.
“We’re delighted that Fosway has recognized Learning Pool’s progress as a Strategic Leader in the Digital Learning 9-Grid for 2021,” said Ben Betts, CEO. “In an environment heavily impacted by Covid-19, our team has worked hard to deliver outstanding online learning solutions for new and existing customers alike and, along with our recent acquisition of Remote Learner in the North American region, our global business continues to accelerate at pace.”
This announcement follows a trend for Learning Pool being recognized in the industry. The company also moved from Potential Challenger to Core Challenger on the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems in January 2021. Read more about the background to that related story.
