The Best of Elearning! 2016 Finalists Revealed

Executives Nominate 99 Solutions Across 29 Categories for Excellence

MARICOPA, AZ--(Marketwired - September 08, 2016) - Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voices of the enterprise learning and workforce technology market, announced today the Best of Elearning! Awards 2016 Finalists. Readers and professionals from both the private and public sector cast more than 4,000 nominations for the best-in-class solutions across 29 product categories. Winners of each category will be revealed in Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines in December and honored at the Best of Elearning! Celebration at the Enterprise Learning! Event.

In its 12th year, The Best of Elearning! Awards program is the industry gold standard for excellence. The program is the exclusive Industry Users Choice Award whereby learning professionals vote with their ballot for best-in-class solutions. Eighty-five percent of professionals have personally recommended a learning solution to a colleague over the past 12 months and this awards program formalizes this personal recommendation process. Award recognition is important for buyers, as 61 percent agree that award recognition impacts their buying decision, according to Elearning! Media Group's research.

This year, 99 individual products and solutions are being named as finalists.

"We are in an exciting time of innovation, creativity and competition," says Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group. "The Best of Elearning! awards recognize those brands that solve real business learning challenges. There is no greater honor than having your customers nominate and vote for these best-in-class solutions. We continue our commitment to recognizing innovation and user satisfaction across a diverse group of solution providers."

All 99 brands will be honored for excellence, and the top vote-getter in each category is named the winner. "Every finalist will receive an award of excellence or winner honors. Given the high volume of votes and the number of nominated products, every one of these solution providers should be proud to be voted as best-in-class by their customers," adds Upton.

The Voting Process

Elearning! Media Group readers, practitioners and community members nominate and vote for products and solutions via Elearning! Media Group's online ballot. All ballots were cast between June 1 and September 1, 2016. Each ballot was reviewed and validated by the editorial team. All vendor ballots were voided.
