Kineo proudly announce that Kineo Analytics, in its debut entry, has secured esteemed recognition at the 2023 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Awards. Kineo were awarded Gold in the category for 'Best Advance in Technology for Testing or Learning Evaluation', marking a significant milestone for their learning analytics offering and the entire Kineo team.

Kineo Analytics has revolutionised learning design and evaluation, helping organisations with a more robust, intelligence-led approach to learning design. The service (which Kineo provide at no additional cost with any learning content built in Adapt) gathers comprehensive data about the learning experience, providing valuable insights to guide future strategies and continuous improvement.

The Brandon Hall Tech Awards have acknowledged Kineo Analytics for its instrumental role in helping clients assess competence, understand engagement, and elevate the overall learning experience.
