CALGARY, May 10 /CNW/ - For the second year in a row, Absorb LMS (learning management system), one of the industry's most  powerful e-learning software programs, won two coveted prizes at the 2010 Brandon Hall Research Excellence in Learning Awards.

Absorb took home the Gold for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Global Training and a Silver for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for External Training. "Absorb LMS is the perfect tool for the extended enterprise," says Peter Jurisic, Absorb's Vice President of Business Development. "Our flexible LMS allows our clients to manage their global customer channels, resellers, sales associates and employees." Absorb is already hard at work around the world in such verticals as technology, universities, medical, pharmaceutical, food service, consumer products, public and community service, financial, training, research, automotive, and many others.

With a unique and intelligent content management system, Absorb can provide language specific training, news, surveys, FAQs, and interfaces based upon a user's profile.  If learners are in Budapest, Atlanta, New York, Santiago, Hong Kong or Paris and have unique job titles, the information they receive will be entirely specific to them and translated appropriately.  The LMS supports multiple languages including English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Turkish, Dutch, simplified Chinese, Arabic, traditional Chinese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, and Swedish.  Additional languages are available on demand with quick turnaround and support. And, Absorb LMS meets the challenges in providing external training by minimizing the resources, both human and fiscal, required to train workers at every level of an organization by reducing the technological bloat of large scale LMS products - offering hundreds of features that maximize training and benefits to the learners, rather than bogging them down with useless and difficult components. This streamlined approach means the LMS can be implemented within hours. 

The Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Technology Awards are presented by Brandon Hall Group (www.brandon-hall.com), a leading research firm in training and development. The Learning Technology Awards program showcases innovations in the products in the marketplace for creating and managing learning, talent, and performance. 

"These excellent tools and systems are the cutting edge of learning technology," says Tom Werner, chief research officer and director of the Awards program. "They really change for the better how people learn in the workplace."

Other awards for Absorb LMS include being named to TrainingIndustry.com's 2010 list of Top 20 Learning Portal Companies, along with receiving Gold and Bronze from Brandon Hall's 2009 learning technology awards.

More than 1 million employees and students use Absorb every day in over 1000 companies globally. Among the list of international clients are Oakley, Adobe Software Systems, Dannon, Rolls Royce Motor Cars, American Medical Systems,  Aarons, NYU, Websense, Virgin Mobile Canada, and many others.

The creator of Absorb LMS, Blatant Media Corporation is an e-learning company that leverages the power of technology to provide on-line training solutions for clients throughout the world. The company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. www.absorblms.com (403) 520-2595.
