Learning Pool Is Recognized Again As A Core Challenger By Fosway Group

Each year, Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR Industry Analyst, undertakes an independent analysis of the Learning Systems market in order to provide a unique assessment of the learning and talent supply options available to organizations in EMEA. This culminates in the Fosway 9-Grid™, a leading five-dimensional market model that exists as the only market analysis model used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers in the learning and talent systems market.

Entering its tenth year, the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems is based on Fosway’s unrivaled, independent research in the Next Generation HR, Talent, and Learning markets over more than 25 years. Findings include the insights and experience of its Corporate Research Network, which comprises over 250 leading global companies.

In last year’s analysis, Learning Pool’s Stream Learning Suite was recognized as a Suite on the Fosway 9-Grid™, establishing the company as a Core Challenger in the process. Stream Learning Suite today exists as Learning Pool’s most comprehensive learning suite, combining the very best in learning management, content development and reporting, and analytics. We’re thrilled to have maintained our status as a Core Challenger for the second consecutive year.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, commented: “Learning Pool has maintained its position as a Core Challenger on the 2022 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems with a focus on meeting customer needs and innovating its product offering. The company continues to grow through acquisition and partnerships as well as organic development.”

A Fosway 9-Grid™ Core Challenger is recognized as having a strong core suite of solutions, a good track record of customer advocacy and an ability to perform well in enterprise organizations. The 2022 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems further acknowledges Learning Pool’s year-on-year solution development. In the last 12 months, Stream LXP has been re-established as a Learning Suite bringing on the capabilities of Insights to bring personalization and automated intelligence to learning.

Ben Betts, CEO of Learning Pool said: “Over the last 12 months the Learning Pool team has made great strides with the Stream Learning Suite, including rolling out our first million user deployment. We’re delighted to have retained our ‘Low TCO’ status despite the tough inflationary environment and remain one of the very few options for enterprise and upper mid-market customers who want to move beyond outdated legacy learning platforms, but don’t want the cost and complexity associated with deploying a slew of specialist solutions. These results support our commitment to delivering superb value to our customers and their learners at a time when it is needed most.”

Once again, Learning Pool has been recognized as offering a Lower Total Cost of Ownership for its solutions, establishing us as a differentiated provider in a busy marketplace.

Inclusion in the Fosway 9-Grid™ follows yet another strong year for Learning Pool Group. In January 2022, we carried out our fifth acquisition in as many years, that of New York-based True Office Learning, introducing 80 additional colleagues to the company. Creators of award-winning adaptive eLearning and behavior intelligence technology, True Office Learning has helped organizations around the world measurably improve performance. Specializing in predictive insight and targeted remediation, they have become the go-to disruptor in compliance working with a wide range of Fortune 100 clients including Pfizer, Mondelez, and Cargill to create award-winning programs that proactively manage risk and drive better business outcomes.
