Executives Nominate 100 Solutions Across Expanded 30 Categories for Excellence

Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voices of the enterprise learning and workforce technology market, announced today the Best of Elearning! Awards 2015 Finalists.

We are committed to recognizing innovation and user satisfaction across a diverse group of solution providers,” reports Jerry Roche, editorial director of the Elearning! Media Group.

All 100 brands will be honored for excellence, and the top vote-getter in each category is named the winner. “Each of the 100 brands named will receive an award of excellence or winner honors. Given the high volume of votes and the number of nominated products, every one of these solution providers should be proud to be voted as best-in-class by their customers,” adds Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group.
