Lumesse wins silver award in the 2011 Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology awards for Lumesse CourseBuilder

January 26, 2012 - London

London, 26 January, 2012 - Lumesse, Europe's largest independent talent management software vendor, has won a coveted Brandon Hall silver award for excellence in the Best Advance in Content Authoring and/or Content Management Technology category for Lumesse CourseBuilder. The award for Lumesse, which unveiled Lumesse Learning, a portfolio of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service)-based learning technologies, high-impact content and professional services at the Learning Technologies exhibition held in London in January 2012, follows the October 2011 acquisition of SaaS based e-learning experts Edvantage Group. Lumesse CourseBuilder is a multi award-winning, collaborative authoring platform which was also recently ranked amongst the '2012 Top Authoring Tools' by a leading training portal.

"At Lumesse we love to learn, and we love to win awards for our technology," said Lumesse CEO Matthew Parker. "This is the second major award for our learning technology this month, the second consecutive time we have won a Brandon Hall award, and a great testament to the power and ease of use of Lumesse CourseBuilder. Our global customers are experiencing how collaborative, cloud-based technology that allows teams to create, share and re-use great content worldwide is helping them be more productive and driving greater employee and customer engagement, adoption and satisfaction."

The Lumesse Learning SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) portfolio includes Lumesse CourseBuilder and Lumesse Learning Gateway, a fully configurable Learning Management System that was demonstrated at Learning Technologies 2012 with a new, fully-configurable user interface that can be self-configured by clients, and easily updated without vendor support, by dragging and dropping applications. Lumesse Learning also includes Lumesse Custom Content, Lumesse On-demand Content, and tight integration with Lumesse Talent Management.

Said Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group, "2011 provided us with a unique viewpoint of how organizations are driving business results and performance improvement through technology. This was the year in which technology providers and their clients have been able to transform the power of mobile, social, talent, learning, sales and marketing technologies, with proven, validated results.  Most impressive to our judges was an underlying theme around collaborative relationships, a deep understanding of client needs and how technology can be leveraged to create opportunities and operating efficiencies for organizations of all sizes.  I am proud to announce these first-rate solution providers as award winners in the most competitive year yet."

A panel of veteran, independent senior judges evaluated the entries along with Brandon Hall Group's industry expert analysts and leadership. The winners are listed at
