SALT LAKE CITY (June 4, 2007) — In their May 2007 publication, “MarketScope for Content Courseware,2007” (Waldir Arevolo De Azevedo Filho and Lou Latham), Gartner rated Allen Communication Learning Services as “positive” for its eLearning services. Allen was one of eleven vendors evaluated in the report.
Gartner’s MarketScope focused “on vendor capabilities in the comprehensive content courseware market,” helping define selection criteria for e-learning content providers. This “market is moving from one that historically focused on off-the-shelf courseware to custom content, in which the content is richer and the delivery media are varied.” Moreover, “Gartner has provided the e-learning content MarketScope to reflect these market changes.” Providers in the report were seen by Gartner as the best market representatives for broad content offerings and services capabilities.
“Based on a maturing market and the fact that we see so many companies either going by the wayside or being bought out, we view our rating with Gartner as further recognition of our stability in the industry and our ability to consistently provide satisfaction to our clients with highly-effective and appropriate training solutions delivered on-time,” stated Ron Zamir, President and CEO of Allen. “We believe an evaluation like this from Gartner is a culmination of 26 years dedicated to improving human performance and is highly gratifying.”
Allen believes this years’ rating further cements Allen’s position as a top custom elearning vendor. Recently, Allen has partnered with companies like Toyota, Pfizer, Deutsche Bank, Boeing, RedHat, and Intel to deliver large e-learning and blended learning initiatives.
