UpsideLMS has been positioned as a Potential Challenger for the first time on the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ having previously bagged a Potential Performer place for three consecutive years.

“Advancing to recognition as a Potential Challenger from Potential Performer in the Fosway Group 9-Grid™ is an unmistakable improvement in our potential! It is a testament to our constant growth attitude, be it in the sphere of innovation, delivery, or customer delight”, said Amit Gautam, Founder of UpsideLMS.

With over 2.5 million users worldwide and a comprehensive set of advanced features and functionalities, UpsideLMS has been influential in helping organizations achieve desired learning and business outcomes. 


The Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems is a ‘five-dimensional market analysis 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.’

Speaking about this year’s analysis, David Wilson, CEO, Fosway Group, said, “The LMS and LXP labels now need to go for good. As we predicted, the convergence of modern learning systems has continued apace. As Specialists continue to backfill their solutions with traditional LMS functionality, the Suites are integrating specialist capabilities to be more disruptive. Where they meet in the middle is hugely confusing for buyers.”

He continues, “Advancing to a different zone on the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems is not simple, so the new position of UpsideLMS as a Potential Challenger highlights a marked increase in their potential to support enterprise customers and steady growth in the European learning market.”
