Europe’s #1 HR Industry Analyst Recognizes Training Orchestra as Strategic Leader  for the Third Consecutive Year

Learning organizations are navigating unprecedented times, from finding and keeping the best talent (employees, trainers and SMEs!) to training an increasingly complex and hybrid workforce in a slowing economy. And, they are turning to learning technologies to solve these key challenges and to help do more and train more with less—with the expectation of building a connected, unified learning tech ecosystem.

The LMS is king of learning tech. But, when it comes to managing instructor-led (ILT), virtual instructor-led (vILT) and hybrid training, there is an obvious void—one that is most often filled with the manual labor of spreadsheets and email. And, that’s where Training Orchestra shines, with its laser focus on ILT/vILT training scheduling and operations.

Innovation in training management distinguishes Training Orchestra’s Training Resource Management System as a Strategic Leader on Fosway’s 2023 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems, addressing the complex needs of the training back-office.

What is the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems?

The Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems is the only market analysis model that is used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers in the market. It allows readers to compare different learning technologies based on their Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership, and Future Trajectories across the market.

What is a Strategic Leader on the 2023 Fosway 9-Grid™?

According to Fosway, a Strategic Leader in their 9-Grid™ report is for learning technology specialists or suites that are higher-band performers and who provide their customers with higher band potential. As either a specialist or suite, they have deep capabilities and the sophistication to meet the needs of large, complex enterprise-scale customers. “Strategic Leaders also have strong market performance and customer advocacy. As a result, they are frequently short-listed and selected by such organizations and consistently meet the needs of those organizations”.
