Expertus Recognized for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology

Mountain View, CA – May 19, 2011 – Expertus, a global provider of software and services that optimize the business impact of learning, today announced that ExpertusONETM has won a coveted Brandon Hall Silver award for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Compliance Training.

Expertus won the award based on its work with a large global energy company. Because full compliance of required employee training was critical to the organization’s continued growth and profitability, a complete transformation of its learning technologies and compliance program support was needed, including:

  • An upgrade to its LMS architecture and the outsourcing of all SaaS hosting and level 3 support;
  • Improvements to the user experience through relevant and intuitive technology, search capabilities and rapid access to knowledge;
  • The addition of an analytics reporting tool, offering executives access to a real-time dashboard of performance and compliance data; and
  • The establishment of a scalable, easy-to-configure, long-term platform that could keep pace with the company’s global learning needs.

Using innovative, holistic ExpertusONE technology, the entire project was a success. In just six months time, the energy company launched a complete technology solution that improved user adoption of training and reduced costs.

With ExpertusONE, company managers now have unprecedented access to business-critical compliance reporting. In addition, the organization grew productivity and cost-effectiveness in the upgrade, consolidation and outsourcing of its learning management technology. They were able to force consolidation of peripheral LMSs for better compliance control; reduce system downtime for improved content availability; and outsource IT hosting staff to save costs, training and hassles.

“This case study illustrates our ability to drastically change an organization’s operations and improve critical functions like compliance training and measurement,” said Ramesh Ramani, founder and CEO of Expertus. “We are honored to win this award from the visionary Brandon Hall Group because they have an acute awareness about what technology moves the needle forward.”

The Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Technology Awards are presented by Brandon Hall Group, a leading research firm in training and development. The Learning Technology Awards program showcases innovations in the products in the marketplace for creating and managing learning, talent, and performance.

“These excellent tools and systems are the cutting edge of learning technology,” said Tom Werner, chief research officer and director of the Awards program. “They really change for the better how people learn in the workplace.”
