The LearnCenter Learning and Performance Management Suite Recognized as "Turnkey" by Bersin & Associates in Latest Industry Study

Share Article®, the leader in creating and projecting power-on-demand, today announced that the company’s LearnCenter® Learning and Performance Management Suite was recognized in Bersin & Associates latest industry study, Performance Management 2006: Market Analysis, Trends, and Vendor Profiles released on May 17, 2006. The 230-page report is based on a quantitative survey of 553 HR and training managers on performance management, in-depth interviews with over 50 organizations currently using a performance management system, briefings with 21 talent management software vendors, and a quantitative survey of 125 HR managers with experience in implementing a performance management system.

According to Bersin & Associates, “The biggest integration challenge organizations face is integration with the LMS (more than twice as frequently cited than integration with the compensation system). To automate development plans and implement any type of competency-based talent management, organization must synchronize competency, the course catalog, and course completion data between the LMS and performance management system. This data is one of the reasons we believe that many customers will choose to purchase a performance management system that integrates “out of the box” with their LMS.” More information on this topic can be found at

“The information in this research further solidifies our holistic Pre-Hire to Retire(SM) one-vendor philosophy, said JW Ray, Chief Operating Officer at As many of our competitors “Frankenstein”, a solution together by bolting on OEM software, and partner software, is squarely focused on one solid technology base that is not Dependant on 3rd party applications to deliver an end-to-end solution for learning and performance management. This equates to lower overall cost of ownership for our clients, faster ROI, consolidated and focused product development and road mapping, clear and seamless product upgrade and support paths and a homogeneous easy-to-use interface for our clients and LearnCenter users. Simply, no other company in the e-learning industry offers a more complete suite of solutions accessible from one easy-to-use system and a single point of contact.”

The Bersin & Associates study states, ”Since performance management is included in the out-of-the-box LearnCenter, it does not have to be purchased separately. This turnkey approach creates a seamless transition for users and administrators managing organizational learning and performance management. LearnCenter is probably best suited for organizations that prefer a signal vendor and a holistic approach, where learning management, learning content management, and performance management work together.”
