Wainhouse Research Positions Skillsoft’s Percipio as a Leader in the 2019 Learning Experience Platforms Market Overview

Percipio named a leading solution in the burgeoning LXP market for its strong growth and continued innovation

BOSTON – November 21, 2019Skillsoft, a global leader in corporate learning with expertise in leadership development & business skills, technology & development, compliance and talent development, today announced that Wainhouse Research positioned Percipio as a leader in its 2019 Learning Experience Platforms Market Overview. According to Wainhouse, the LXP market leaders have “shown strongest growth in terms of revenue and learners under license, and have a compelling, complete product.”

As noted in the Market Overview, with a robust global economy and North American unemployment rates at 50-year lows, organizations have recognized that developing critical skills for existing talent is a far better investment than recruiting new talent for key skills. As a result, organizations increasingly need software solutions to support learning initiatives that keep workers engaged and enable them to learn new skills and processes quickly. Learning experience platforms are designed to create more agile learning experiences by delivering microlearning, content curation and personalized learning paths.

Wainhouse also calls out Percipio’s ability to personalize the learner experience with AI-driven recommendations that reflect each learner’s unique interests and behavior on the site.
