UpsideLMS is a Potential Performer in Fosway 2018 9-GridTM Fosway’s 9-Grid has identified UpsideLMS as a Potential Performer in its 2018 report for Learning Systems! Hallelujah!

Not only does this validate the continued growth and adoption of our Cloud-based Learning Management System worldwide
(and especially in the UK and EU), but for us, internally, it’s a confirmation of our efforts, plans, and outcomes. And a boost for the upcoming ones.


But what is Fosway 9-Grid™?

9-Grid™ is a five dimensional market analysis model that is used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers in the learning and talent systems market. In context of Learning Systems, it plots different LMSs with respect to 5 critical factors – Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and Future Trajectories. The entire grid is based on Fosway’s unrivalled, independent research in the Next Generation HR and Learning markets over 20 years, and is abundant with insights and experience of its Corporate Research Network.

Potential Performer – What does it mean for you?

Given that corporates comes in many shapes and sizes, with varying degrees of organizational complexity, fragmentation, and multi-nationality, the needs vary too. Not all need sophisticated features or have large budgets. UpsideLMS is a great fit for price-sensitive customers as it provides a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), rich feature set, and overall value-for-money.

Looking into the future

With over 1M satisfied users worldwide, a comprehensive feature and functionality set, and AGILE designing and development methodology with innovation at its core, UpsideLMS has acquired the trust not only from its global client base alone, but apex eLearning bodies like Brandon Hall, CLO, and Training Industry too. Its product roadmap, which is based on the emerging trends and technologies, and customer requirements, features Gamification, IDP, Learning Paths, Graphical Admin Dashboard, and more.

I am confident that our robust investments in the product, all-comprehensive product roadmap, and increased acceptance in the UK and EU markets will make UpsideLMS a strong contender for the right top quadrants in the future.

Here’s to the good times!
