Learning Technologies Group plc (“LTG”), the integrated talent management and learning technologies software and services provider, announced today that it is merging NetDimensions into PeopleFluent to form a key component of PeopleFluent’s learning suite.
The merger was announced on Tuesday 25 September 2018 at a shareholder presentation of LTG’s 2018 interim results. The joining of NetDimensions and PeopleFluent, which is scheduled to conclude by the end of October 2018, will see NetDimensions cease to operate as a separate business within LTG.
LTG is to rebrand the NetDimensions LMS to form a key product within the PeopleFluent Learning offering. Alongside the newly-named NetDimensions LMS, PeopleFluent’s learning suite is to offer authoring and video solutions, provided by gomo learning technology. The addition of gomo products to the PeopleFluent Learning suite enables direct deployment from gomo’s authoring tool to NetDimensions LMS. All products will continue to be available as standalone or fully integrated solutions.
The introduction of NetDimensions’ LMS to the PeopleFluent’s learning suite will enable improved services to customers, including 24-hour support and a global network of Account Managers.
The revitalised learning suite joins PeopleFluent’s award-winning Talent Management and Talent Acquisition products. PeopleFluent’s existing LMS will remain supported until further notice despite the introduction of the NetDimensions LMS to PeopleFluent’s product portfolio.
NetDimensions, which was acquired by LTG in March 2017, is a leading provider of learning management solutions specialising in servicing high-consequence industries. The integration of NetDimensions software into PeopleFluent’s learning offering, forms a significant part of LTG’s focus on helping global companies attract, retain and develop their people.
Jonathan Satchell, Chief Executive of LTG, said:
“By integrating NetDimensions’ award-winning LMS into PeopleFluent’s product suite we are creating a market-leading end-to-end product suite for talent transformation with learning at its heart. This echoes our mission to continue providing best-of-breed solutions that assist corporates with all aspects of the employee lifecycle, from recruitment to development and retention of top talent.”
Alongside the integration, PeopleFluent welcomes a new Managing Director, Stephen Bruce. Stephen, who joined PeopleFluent nine years ago, has held several senior positions within the company, most recently as EVP and Chief Customer Officer.
Stephen Bruce, PeopleFluent’s newly-appointed Managing Director, said:
“I am delighted to be stepping into the role of PeopleFluent’s Managing Director. With our newly-bolstered product suite, which boasts NetDimensions’ award-winning learning management system, we look forward to helping our clients grow, nurture and develop their talented staff.”
The integration forms a key aspect of LTG’s 2018 interim results announcements. Other significant highlights of the announcement include the creation of Affirmity, a new company within LTG that will focus on employee diversity, as well as plans to extract PeopleFluent’s successful vendor management solution to form its own standalone business.
