UpsideLMS-Sweeps-5-Brandon-Hall-Excellence-In-Technology-Awards-(2010) There is no better way to start a morning than to find not one, not two, but FIVE emails with congratulations written all over them. Earlier today, we received emails from Brandon-Hall Group letting us know that our best value LMS – UpsideLMS – has won 5 Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Awards (2010) awards.

Last year, under the same awards, UpsideLMS had won 3 awards (across different categories). The only LMS to have won these many awards. As in the previous year, this year too, UpsideLMS won awards in all the categories it was submitted in. In every category, Brandon-Hall announces Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners and UpsideLMS’s tally, for this year, stands tall and impressive with a list of 2 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze.

Brandon Hall Excellence In Technology Awards Gold Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Blended or Informal Learning
Brandon Hall Excellence In Technology Awards Gold Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Compliance Training
Brandon Hall Excellence In Technology Awards Silver Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses
Brandon Hall Excellence In Technology Awards Silver Best Advance in Social Learning Technology
Brandon Hall Excellence In Technology Awards Bronze Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for External Training

Nothing demonstrates the flexibility and robustness better than a single LMS product winning awards across 5 different categories. And UpsideLMS sure has lived up to its promise! Categories as diverse as ‘Compliance Training’ and ‘Informal or Blended Training’ (UpsideLMS won Gold in both these categories) require the LMS to be able to cater to the specific needs – in terms of the overall features and benefits it offers. A new category for UpsideLMS this year was the ‘External Training’ category. UpsideLMS’s innovative 3-tier architecture (the multi-tenant/multi-portal system) makes it extremely easy to extend the Learning Management System to a company’s external partners/stakeholders. With an early adoption of Social learning components in the LMS, UpsideLMS won, second time in a row, in the category for ‘Social Learning Technology’. And, last but not the least, the Silver in the category for ‘Small- and Medium-Sized Business’ (once again, second time in the row) truly establishes UpsideLMS as the best value LMS available today. I’d like to congratulate everyone at Upside Learning for this achievement and recognition. This is a major milestone for us and one that motivates the entire team at Upside to work harder and reach new milestones. Cheers!
