For Second Straight Year, Meridian Voted World's Best LMS
Herndon, Va. - October 4, 2012 - For the second straight year, readers of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines named Meridian Knowledge Solutions' Meridian Global LMS the world's best enterprise learning management system. The Meridian Global LMS is software that links people to courses, documents, data, instructors and other learners at any time from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device.
Vinay Nilakantan, Meridian's director of product development and research, accepted the award on September 26 at the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo in Irvine, California. "It might sound trite to say our focus, first and foremost, is on our customer's success and satisfaction. But winning this award proves we're delivering on those words," said Nilakantan. "We thank those who voted Meridian the world's Best Enterprise LMS for a second year in a row."
The staff of Elearning! magazine received approximately 3,800 nominations for this year's readers' choice awards. Readers selected products across 21 categories to receive awards ranging from Best Learning Management System to Best Virtual Classroom. Meridian was also a finalist for Best Enterprise LMS in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
"To be named a category winner is a true testament to the vendor's product and service excellence," said Catherine Upton, Elearning! Media Group's publisher, in a statement.
The 2012 edition of Meridian Global LMS includes a social module for customers to integrate discussion forums, wikis, blogs, document-sharing and chat within the learning management system's collaboration spaces - the areas learners can use to share know-how or discuss courses they have taken. Learners can also post comments and links about courses, videos or podcasts to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for discussion.
"Healthcare organizations, professional associations, government and others trust the world-class, comprehensive and easy-to-use capabilities of Meridian's LMS to optimize learning for the extended enterprise," said John Leh, vice president of sales and marketing for Meridian.
