17-Oct-2008 » Training Press Releases » Learn.com®, the leader in on-demand workforce development and productivity, announced today that the company's LearnCenter® Learning and Talent Management Suite was recognized in Bersin & Associates latest industry study, The Essential Guide to Employee Performance Management Systems, Part 2, released in October, 2008.
The 271-page report, written by Leighanne Levensaler, is based on information from a variety of sources including interviews and focus groups with U.S. and global corporations, nonprofits, government and higher-educational institutions, briefings with vendors and quantitative research. HR practitioners and line managers from organizations of all sizes and across all industries were surveyed. The final count of qualified respondents was 716.
According to the Bersin & Associates study, "The company (Learn.com) offers a broad set of features for performance management, career and succession management, compensation management, and recruitment management in one product - the LearnCenter platform. A talent management system, the LearnCenter platform rests on a single database to manage employee profiles, competencies, jobs, organizational hierarchies and content across all of the talent management processes.
The study continues; "We found competency-based development planning to be particularly strong. Most notably, development actions and learning experiences can be automatically recommended and accessed from the development plan."
"We believe that Learn.com is well-suited for U.S.-based organizations that would like an integrated LMS, LCMS, collaboration and performance management solution. The product's ease of implementation and ease of use is appealing to organizations with limited IT and HR administration teams."
The study supported Learn.com's Three Key Company Differentiators:
1. High-Value, Low-Cost Solution - The LearnCenter is not sold in modules. Every customer gets the entire suite for one license fee.
2. Pure SaaS On-Demand Platform - Every customer is running the latest version of the full LearnCenter.
3. Collaboration Technologies - The LearnCenter platform supports the WebRoom® collaboration platform for live mentoring, performance support, coaching and best practices sharing. LearnCenter also contains wiki and blog capabilities to support
communities of practice.
"We are very pleased to have a well respected and detailed analyst firm such as Bersin & Associates recognize our key differentiators. Learn.com has been building high impact organizations and competitive powerhouses for almost a decade. Over 450 organizations are currently using the current version of the LearnCenter platform to increase business performance, cull necessary business intelligence and increase competency levels of their most highly prized individuals, therefore maximizing workforce productivity," said JW Ray Chief Operating Officer of Learn.com
