CALGARY, ALBERTA (PRWEB) January 27, 2013

Staff at Blatant Media Corporation, creators of the award-winning Absorb LMS, are pleased to announce that they have received a Gold award for "Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses" from Brandon Hall Group's Excellence in Technology Awards program. Absorb LMS also received a Bronze award for "Best Advance in Learning Management Technology".

The award entries were rigorously evaluated by a panel of independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group Senior Analysts and Executive Leadership based upon the following criteria:

  •     Product: What was the product's breakthrough innovation?
  •     Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique and how does it differ from any competing products?
  •     Value proposition: What problem does the product solve and/or what need does this product address?
  •     Measurable results: What are the benefits customers can expect to experience as a result of using this product?

The latest release of the Absorb LMS builds upon the existing easy-to-use platform by adding a completely redesigned learner interface that fully supports a seamless mobile learning experience. The new learner interface incorporates the latest in HTML 5, responsive-design techniques, providing a great user experience across desktop and mobile learning platforms. This means that the user experience is automatically adjusted and optimized for the user, whether they are accessing it from an iPad, iPhone, Windows or Android phone or tablet, or any kind of computer (Apple, Windows or Linux, for example).

The layout also adjusts itself when a user rotates their device from landscape to portrait mode, and improved Search and other menu items are always within reach of your thumb or mouse.

"People are telling us this is the best looking LMS that they've ever seen," said Al Kinnear, Sales and Marketing Director with Blatant Media. "We already had an award-winning feature set, now we've got an amazing 'look and feel' to go along with that."

"It rocks!" added Mike Eggermont, partner at Blatant Media.

These awards add to Absorb's extensive list of previous accolades and further support Blatant Media's Certification as a "Best in Class" LMS Vendor through Brandon Hall Group's Smartchoice(R) program.
