Following a period of sustained investment and growth, Learning Pool is delighted to have moved from Core Leader to Strategic Leader on the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning.

Learning Pool is the only provider to achieve this recognition while maintaining a lower total cost of ownership for clients.

Published by respected industry analysts, Fosway Group, the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning is a five-dimensional model that can be used to help businesses understand the relative position of solutions/providers in the learning and talent systems market.

Vendors and their solutions are compared based on Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Lower Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories. Categorised as providing a rich suite of capability across a broad scope of features, Strategic Leaders have the sophistication to meet the needs of complex enterprise-scale customers. 

The move acknowledges Learning Pool’s continued efforts to deliver innovation in learning, the pace of Learning Pool’s year on year solution development and our ongoing dedication to customer success for a rapidly growing number of worldwide clients.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway said, “Learning Pool has sustained its organic growth and grown through acquisition, whilst continuing to serve its European-centric customer base. Alongside an increasingly diverse portfolio, it is now recognised as a Strategic Leader on the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning.”

The move to Strategic Leader comes just two years after Learning Pool’s launch of its latest Learning Suite, Stream, and the company is the only vendor in that Zone to offer a Lower Total Cost of Ownership; supporting its commitment to providing a fantastic return on investment for client organisations and their learners.

“We’re delighted that Fosway has recognised Learning Pool’s progress as a Strategic Leader in the Digital Learning 9-Grid for 2021. In an environment heavily impacted by covid-19, our team has worked hard to deliver outstanding online learning solutions for new and existing customers alike and, along with our recent acquisition of Remote Learner in the North American region, our global business continues to accelerate at pace.” Ben Betts, Chief Executive Officer
