– Lumesse, a global leader in integrated talent management solutions, today announced the latest version of its award-winning Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) learning management system, Lumesse Learning Gateway 5.7, with a wide range of new capabilities that include enhanced reporting, additional languages, improved navigation and full integration with Lumesse ETWeb talent management.

The integration (announced earlier this month) with Lumesse ETWeb, delivered using the new Lumesse ETWeb Exchange service-oriented architecture, offers users fast and easy access to learning from a wide range of e-learning vendors anywhere in the world. Personalized, relevant learning content can be selected and delivered directly from the cloud within the familiar, web-based user experience of Lumesse ETWeb.

“Lumesse Learning Gateway takes the pain out of managing learning,” said Lumesse CEO Matthew Parker. “This release helps both learners and learning managers to find and manage the training they need. Learners can identify and start training that is directly relevant to their career goals and their company objectives through a familiar talent management environment. Training managers can control the process, workflow and reporting of learning with less effort and greater oversight. Organizations get better trained, more motivated people with lower costs and less administrative overhead.”

Lumesse Learning Gateway is a powerful and affordable cloud-based learning management system that delivers and manages sophisticated blended learning programmes that can include mobile and social learning, tests and assessments, personalized e-learning, and instructor-led training. Lumesse Learning Gateway is delivered as a SaaS solution configurable to exact needs to encourage high completion rates, and scalable for any number of learners and any amount of learning.

Among the improvements in Lumesse Learning Gateway 5.7 are:

  • A new scalable reporting framework generates attractive reports — from a standard, categorized library — that are easy to understand and use.
  • Added language support for learners: Chinese and Japanese for a total of 22 supported learner languages; and French and      Italian for a total of seven supported administrator languages.
  • A redesigned administrative portal offers simpler, more intuitive navigation of the powerful learning management capabilities in Lumesse Learning Gateway.

 

In addition, tight integration with Lumesse ETWeb talent management allows a learner-centric, consumerized user experience with single sign-on and a common look-and-feel that increases user adoption by making access and navigation simple and intuitive for all users. Users can quickly find best-match learning activities that support career development and objectives, start e-learning from within the talent management system, and easily identify recommended and mandatory training – supporting increased completion ratios. Direct access to development history and development plans from a Talent Profile give a clear overview of training taken and required, while integrated reporting measures and analyzes progress and completion against planned and mandatory learning, as well as cost breakdowns. Configurable workflows allow managers easy approval of learning activities.

Lumesse Learning Gateway 5.7 is available immediately.

The award for Lumesse, which unveiled Lumesse Learning, a portfolio of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service)-based learning technologies, high-impact content and professional services at the Learning Technologies exhibition held in London in January 2012, follows the October 2011 acquisition of SaaS based e-learning experts Edvantage Group.

“At Lumesse we love to learn, and we love to win awards for our technology,” said Lumesse CEO Matthew Parker. “This is the second major award for our learning technology this month, the second consecutive time we have won a Brandon Hall award, and a great testament to the power and ease of use of Lumesse CourseBuilder.

Said Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group, “2011 provided us with a unique viewpoint of how organizations are driving business results and performance improvement through technology. This was the year in which technology providers and their clients have been able to transform the power of mobile, social, talent, learning, sales and marketing technologies, with proven, validated results. Most impressive to our judges was an underlying theme around collaborative relationships, a deep understanding of client needs and how technology can be leveraged to create opportunities and operating efficiencies for organizations of all sizes. I am proud to announce these first-rate solution providers as award winners in the most competitive year yet.”

Lumesse voted ‘most flexible in implementation’ and ‘most cutting edge’ in technology shootout at HRO Summit Europe…from Lumesse

Lumesse, a global leader in integrated talent management solutions, has been voted ‘most flexible in implementation’ and ‘most cutting edge’ in a live technology shootout at HRO Summit Europe. Lumesse also tied for first place in the ‘most innovative’ category with another vendor. Vendors taking part in the live shootout in front of an audience of HR professionals had just a few minutes to demonstrate the latest capabilities of their products and then faced questions from the audience on the technology showcased.

“This is a great endorsement for our talent management technology by the sort of knowledgeable and professional audience that the HRO Summit attracts,” said Lumesse CEO Matthew Parker. “In a crowded market it can be difficult for customers to cut through the competing claims, but a live shootout like this shows which vendors have the answers to the questions that real users want to ask.”

The technology shootout took place in Barcelona on 3 November 2011 at the HRO Summit Europe, the eighth year this prestigious event has taken place. Over 200 HR professionals attended HRO Summit Europe over 3 days in Barcelona, with almost 30 vendors represented.

“It was very brave of the vendors concerned to go in front of a live audience, especially with real time electronic voting, to present their technology,” said Faye Holland, Managing Director, European & Asia Pacific Operations, SharedXpertise, the event’s organiser. “Lumesse distinguished itself with a great demo of technology relevant to the audience and a good understanding of real user needs in a global context.”

“As a leader in the recruitment outsourcing market we’re not surprised to see Lumesse TalentLink win these nominations from an expert audience – it has great capabilities for RPOs and MSPs like hyphen, especially in terms of helping provide a great candidate experience and a rapid turnaround for customers in finding great staff,” added Rory Jeffcock, Client Services Director at hyphen Recruitment Outsourcing.
