Blatant Media Corporation’s Absorb learning management system (LMS) platform – distributed in the UK and Continental Europe by Omniplex - has received a ‘Best in Class’ rating in Brandon Hall Group’s Smartchoice® Solution Provider Certification program.

According to Omniplex, a leading provider of e-learning solutions, Blatant Media Corporation received its highest scores in the area of ‘cost of ownership’, based on ‘price to value’ and extremely high levels of customer satisfaction with the overall return on investment in the Absorb platform.

Mike Cooke, chief executive officer of Brandon Hall Group - a research and analyst organisation focused on developing research-driven solutions to drive organisational performance within executive management, learning and development, talent management, sales, and marketing functions – “It’s evident that Blatant Media has a compelling learning solution. Blatant Media¹s clients have reported their solutions to be reliable, flexible, and easy to use.

“A strong focus on product design, functionality and client support was integral in Blatant Media receiving a Brandon Hall Group Smartchoice® certification.”

The Smartchoice® Program, which is based on Brandon Hall Group’s extensive analyst coverage of vendors and industry research findings, is a validation program that recognises the best product and service providers offering solutions to learning, talent, sales and marketing functions.

Its methodology involves a rigorous evaluation process focusing on four core areas: Client Support; Cost of Ownership; Functionality; and Capability. Companies, which receive a superior rating in all four-focus areas, receive the Smartchoice® Program certification.

This is the seventh time that Blatant Media has earned the recognition of Brandon Hall and the first time that it has participated in the Smartchoice® program. Its previous Brandon Hall awards include:
• Bronze in Learning Management Technology category of the Excellence in Technology for Learning, Talent Management, and Sales and Marketing Awards (2011)
• Gold Award for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Global Training (2010)

• Gold Award for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Small and Medium Sized Businesses (2009)
• Bronze Award for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for External Training (2009)
• Silver Award for Best Video in a Learning Program (2008)

“Absorb LMS has also been named in’s 2011 list of Top 20 Learning Portal Companies - for the second consecutive year - and was recently recognised as an ‘Industry Innovator’ in a McLean & Company LMS Landscapes report,” commented Matthew Lloyd, Omniplex’s managing director. “We’re delighted to yet again see Absorb LMS’s superior usability confirmed by Brandon Hall Group’s certification program.”
