According to the report, “Good content is the cornerstone of a successful e-learning program. Careful selection of e-learning content vendors can help to ensure that quality content is deployed.”
“Sixty percent of our business is repeat business,” said Zamir. “We can never forget that it is our clients and their demand for quality, good value and, above all, effective training that makes us one of the fastest growing and profitable companies in the industry.”
Gartner, Inc.’s evaluation follows an award-winning year for Allen Communication. The company received eight Axiem awards for excellence in multimedia and a silver Brandon Hall Excellence in E-Learning Award.
