Vodeclic Announces Company Rebrand to Skillsoft

Culmination of three years’ work that consolidates the best of Skillsoft and Vodeclic’s industry-leading learning content
Paris – 19 December 2018 – Skillsoft, a global leader in corporate learning, has announced today that Vodeclic, a leading provider of enterprise learning solutions, will operate under the Skillsoft brand in France. Vodeclic was acquired by Skillsoft in May 2015 to complement its existing portfolio of learning applications. As part of the acquisition, Skillsoft acquired Vodeclic's learning platform which was instrumental in the creation and development of Percipio, Skillsoft’s learning experience platform which has won 10 awards. This new branding is the culmination of three years’ work that consolidates the best of Skillsoft and Vodeclic’s industry-leading learning content to serve its customers in the region best. Since the acquisition, Vodeclic’s customer base in France has trebled. More than 40 percent of the customers have benefited from access to fully localised versions of its award-winning learning systems. “We are in the midst of one of the most significant changes to the way we work—not seen since the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. Digital transformation is here, and it means that organisations need to think and work differently. Employees will need different skills and if organisations want to succeed in this new era, they must continuously develop their staff,” said Steve Wainwright, managing director of EMEA, Skillsoft. Wainwright concluded: “The launch of the Skillsoft brand in France comes at a critical time and gives learners access to an intuitive learning experience platform that delivers original ways to access content, improve accessibility and accelerate L&D outcomes.” “Skillsoft, a global leader in digital learning, content and platforms, has made the most of its acquisition of the French start-up Vodeclic. The acquisition played a significant role in the creation of Percipio, a platform dedicated to professional efficiency and employability in the digital era. And the work has been fruitful; Percipio offers quality and relevance of content and learning experience, smart pedagogical design, accessibility and a large customer base. It’s no wonder that Percipio has won so many awards and has had such an impact on the market. France will be no exception,” said Michel Diaz, consultant, Fefaur.
