ABSORB LMS Introduces First Cross-Culture, Smart Global e-Learning System

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Award-winning Absorb LMS, one of the industry's most user-friendly e-learning software programs, just took the LMS game to another whole level, adding SMARTLAB to its services for clients seeking a consistent learning experience across cultures and languages, with the added benefit of social media connectivity.

The addition of SMARTLAB to the Absorb LMS offering was given two thumbs up in an independent product briefing recently conducted by Brandon Hall's Director of Industry Programs, Dan Medakovic. "Absorb LMS has actually created a suite of solutions that leap frog multiple LMS products in many ways," concludes Medakovic.

SMARTLAB addresses the shift towards extended enterprise training, where clients need to train employees, sales forces, representatives, associates and agents all over the world.

Key features of Absorb SMARTLAB include on-demand multi-lingual capabilities and translation features (provided by Motion Point), and seamless social media connectivity (Bloomfire) so that users can follow experts, ask questions, upload videos and share their knowledge and experience with others. Administrators have control over the social media feature and can ensure posted materials and conversations are professional and learning-focused. In addition, SMARTLAB extends the core LMS functionality by adding a rules-based content management system (CMS) that supports creating and managing news, contests, course rankings, and frequently asked questions.

"What SMARTLAB really does is take the standard corporate LMS user interface and gives you the ability to present learning content in a way that is more appealing to the Gen X/Y learner," says Medakovic in his briefing. "The LMS becomes more of an information hub; content is fresh, frequently updated and targeted to your personal interests."

In fact, Absorb SMARTLAB removes the barriers to learning for everyone regardless of their age or computer literacy, because the user-friendly interface supports a positive experience for both novice and expert users. In addition, SMARTLAB is ready-made for the Apple iPad, allowing training to unfold conveniently for mobile learners.

"SMARTLAB is a game-changer in the LMS marketplace," says Peter Jurisic, Absorb's Vice President of Business Development. "We have found a way to deliver learning programs and sales tools wherever in the world they're needed, when they're needed, with unsurpassed flexibility, efficiency and economy."

Absorb LMS is an award-winner, being named to TrainingIndustry.com's 2010 list of Top 20 Learning Portal Companies, along with receiving Gold and Bronze awards from Brandon Hall for best advances in learning management technology.
