The 2019 Talented Learning Awards, conducted by Talented Learning, an independent LMS research and consulting firm, are one of the most coveted awards in the L&D space. These awards recognize industry leaders that have demonstrated excellence in the eLearning and learning technology landscape across multiple categories including but not limited to ‘Extended Enterprise’. And this year, Talented Learning has shortlisted UpsideLMS, the multi-award-winning Learning Management System, as a finalist in its ‘Best Corporate Extended Enterprise Learning Systems’ category.
Talented Learning describes this category as ‘Business-oriented solutions targeting external audiences such as customers, channel partners, suppliers and contractors. Employees may also be included, but aren’t the sole focus of these applications.’ UpsideLMS ticks all these boxes with its 3-tier architecture that makes hosting of multiple, distinctly branded portals on a single LMS instance a breeze for organizations, making it one of the best extended enterprise LMSes in the market today.
Describing the key strengths and differentiators for each of the corporate extended enterprise learning systems’ finalists, here’s what Talented Learning had to say about UpsideLMS on its awards page – ‘UpsideLMS is a full-featured cloud learning platform that is used effectively for employee learning and/or extended enterprise education. This company is based in India, but the solution is widely used in Europe and around the world because of its strong globalization, localization and GDPR functionality – including excellent configurable reporting. Its user interface is appealing and online/offline mobile friendly. Also because Upside makes it easy and affordable to manage learning at an organization, domain or portal level, it’s an ideal low-cost option for external channel or customer education.’
UpsideLMS’ selection from amongst a whopping 750 top learning solution providers is a testimony to its commitment towards excellence and innovation. UpsideLMS has been consistently adding to its list of honors, including a maximum number of Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology awards, and placed as a ‘Potential Performer’ on the recently announced 2019 Fosway 9-GridTM for a second successive year. And, considering its dedication towards continuous innovation, a coveted place on the 2019 Talented Learning Awards finalists’ shortlist certainly doesn’t come as a surprise. According to the Talented Learning website, selecting 27 outstanding solutions from 750 entries was no easy task, and that ‘being on this list is a big deal’. And, a big deal it is!
Director of UpsideLMS, Amit Gautam, said, "It’s truly an honor to be placed as finalists in the prestigious 2019 Talented Learning Awards. It is an extraordinary achievement to have been selected from among some of the world’s top learning technology solutions providers. I am thankful to Talented Learning for recognizing UpsideLMS as a leader in the Extended Enterprise category, our clients that have trusted us for their own L&D as well as their channel partners’, customers’ and other external learners’ learning and training, and also, last but not the least, to the entire UpsideLMS family for making this happen.”
