Unicorn Training’s SkillsServe learning and performance platform is now ranked in the World’s top five LMSs and is the number one platform for financial services. They are the findings of a new report from leading global eLearning analyst and consultant Craig Weiss, revealed ahead of this week's Learning Technologies L&D exhibition and conference.

Weiss’ Top 50 LMSs Report 2015 is viewed as the primary guide for global LMS vendors, providing insight into system profiles, setup, implementation, upcoming features, and product reviews including pros and cons. And this year’s report, published on Saturday (24 January) sees SkillsServe move up from number eight in the 2014 Mid-Year Rankings report to number five overall, while holding its position as the top system globally for financial services.

SkillsServe celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, with version five of the platform being officially unveiled at Learning Technologies this week (28-29 January).

SkillsServe 5.0 has some major new features including a new combined catalogue and content manager, making it easier to build programmes, and a new diagnostic assessment tool so administrators can determine if a user needs to do a piece of learning or can be exempt from it.

Other enhancements include a new in-built authoring tool, eCreator, also getting its official launch at Learning Technologies, CPD upgrades including the ability to assign a different CPD scheme to each person, the addition of a new suite of default reports and Report API to enable integration with third party systems.

This year will also see improved navigation and filtering features to make the user experience even more intuitive, internationalisation with multiple languages, editing and translation tools available, and a SkillsServe App for offline access to learning, assessments, study plans etc which syncs once online again.

Visitors to Learning Technologies will be able to find Unicorn on Stand 95 and discover why SkillsServe is the preferred choice for compliance plus learn all about Unicorn’s innovative new in-build authoring tool, eCreator.
