Totara Partners have impressed judges once again at the Learning Technologies Awards 2018 with three top award wins.

Learning Pool won a Gold award for ‘Best UK learning platform implementation’ for their work with soft drinks manufacturer A.G. Barr. Judges described this as ‘one of the most user-friendly Totara implementations that they have seen’, and praised the personalised approach to learning via a scalable platform that will grow with A.G. Barr’s needs.

Kineo also secured a Gold award in the highly competitive ‘Best learning technologies project - UK commercial sector’ category for their work with hospitality operator Mitchells & Butlers. This innovative project focuses on Mable, a fun character designed to boost learner engagement. The platform is based on Totara Social and Totara Learn, and was highlighted as ‘an impressive wide-scale project’ by the judges.

Totara’s Global Partner of the Year Learning Pool also scooped the coveted ‘Learning technologies company of the year award’, owing to their commitment to providing excellent customer service, impressive growth and the thriving community they have fostered.

Lars Hyland, Chief Learning Officer at Totara Learning, said: “We are delighted to see the innovation of our partners and Totara customers being recognised in this way. It is very satisfying to see the open nature of Totara products empowering organisations to deliver solutions that have high impact, both in terms of staff engagement and business value. In today’s workplace, having the flexibility to design learning experiences that are shaped to the specific needs of the organisation are critical to achieving sustained success.“

This year’s results reflect the continuing success of Totara Partners at the industry awards, with four LearnX Platinum Awards, Webanywhere and JetBlue winning a Brandon Hall award and iLearn ME winning an award for their work with National Ambulance UAE in 2018.

The results of the Totara Awards 2018, which celebrate the best projects from across the Totara Partner network, will be announced in January 2019.
