Bridge by Instructure Honored in 2017 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards

Leading Corporate Learning and Talent Management Platform Recognized for Positive Effects on William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty Agent Training

SALT LAKE CITY — January 3, 2018 — Bridge by Instructure, Inc. (NYSE:INST), a talent management software suite for businesses, announced today that its learning management system (LMS) won a Brandon Hall Group award for excellence in the Best Advance in Learning Management Technology category. The winners are listed on the Brandon Hall Group’s website


The Bridge LMS drives people-oriented innovations and solutions for continuing education within an organization. Instructure worked with William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty to deploy Bridge throughout their enterprise, leading to significant improvements in training efficiency. By building education programs through Bridge, each agent receives top quality training while saving around 40–60 hours annually.


“We are very excited that Bridge has been recognized once again by the prestigious Brandon Hall Group awards,” said Matt Bingham, vice president of product for Bridge by Instructure. “Working with William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty was a rewarding project for all involved, and this recognition really validates what a positive impact Bridge can have on any organization.”


Bridge was previously recognized in 2015 by the Brandon Hall Group for advances in learning management technology.


“Human capital management is evolving faster than at any time in its history, and it is powered by innovative technology developed and implemented by organizations big and small,” said Rachel Cooke, chief operating officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “The technology innovators who won Excellence Awards this year were focused on providing users with a better overall experience. That is what our research says employers want, and our award winners are leading the way.”


A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries 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?


Mike Cooke, chief executive officer of Brandon Hall Group, said, “Our technology award winners are truly outstanding and set a high bar for others. We have learned a great deal from what they have accomplished.
