UpsideLMS named as a 'Potential Performer' in 2020 Fosway 9-GridTM for the Third Year Running

February 2020

UpsideLMS, one of the world’s leading learning technology solutions providers, has yet again bagged a desirable place on the 2020 Fosway 9-GridTM for Learning Systems as a ‘Potential Performer’.

The Fosway 9-GridTM for Learning Systems is a ‘multi-dimensional model that can be used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers predominantly in the UK and European markets. It allows you to compare different solutions based on their Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories across the market. The report is updated annually.’

This third consecutive placement on 2020 Fosway 9-GridTM for Learning Systems serves as another accolade in an enviable list of honors and recognition received by UpsideLMS over the years, including a record number of Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Awards, Craig Weiss' Top LMS lists, Learning Technology Awards, Training Industry Watch Lists, and many more.

Speaking about this year’s report, David Wilson, CEO, Fosway Group, said on the Fosway website, ‘What we have seen in the last three years is a convergence in solutions where traditional LMSs have upped their game in terms of next gen features for learner experience, collaboration and gamification. Meanwhile the next gen learning platforms have been forced to back-fill traditional functionality around face-to-face training and compliance by customer demand. This meeting in the middle leaves everyone confused about what the terms mean and what they really need to support learning in their organisation. So, as of 2020, Fosway is changing our classification for the 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems to segment into Suites and Specialists.’

As Europe’s leading HR analyst that provides the ‘only independent view of learning technology markets in Europe, Fosway analyses and advises many leading corporate organizations’, helping accelerate and de-risk HR, talent and learning innovations. For vendors, Fosway helps understand the current market performance and helps increase the future potential.

The 2020 Fosway 9-GridTM is the outcome of expert inputs from Fosway's Corporate Research Network of over 150 organizations, where Fosway 9-GridTM calibrates data across key areas such as Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories.

UpsideLMS' Founder-Director, Amit Gautam, expressed his gratitude and excitement about the achievement, saying, “It is a great honor yet again to be featured on Fosway’s 9-Grid for Learning Systems for 2020 for the third year running. This honor belongs to the entire UpsideLMS family, and our partners and customers. It’s fair to say that our 2020 is looking extremely promising right from the get-go.”
