Instructure’s Bridge Platform Wins Three Silver Awards in the 2015 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in Technology

Awards Distinguish Bridge as Leading Force in Corporate Learning

SALT LAKE CITY — December 17, 2015 — Instructure’s Bridge platform, a leading learning management system (LMS) for corporations and other organizations, today announced it won three coveted Brandon Hall Group silver awards for excellence in learning management technology, learning management technology for external training and learning management technology for small and medium-sized business. These three wins demonstrate Bridge’s exceptional design and innovative mission to improve learning beyond the university and expedite employee productivity.
“Our Bridge learning platform shakes up the traditional way employees are trained and engage with managers, ultimately creating stronger relationships and more successful companies,” said Giorgio Vanzini, senior vice president of product at Instructure. “We are honored to receive the three silver awards from the Brandon Hall Group that highlight these industry-leading innovations.”
Bridge was built upon the idea that employees who are trained properly and given the support they need will drive company-wide success. Featuring a sleek, modern design, it’s easy to use for administrators, and even easier for employees. Since Bridge allows administrators to monitor learning and training in real time, managers can update training material on the fly, and provide the guidance employees need right away, which creates a feedback-rich culture geared toward success. Additionally, because Bridge can be used and accessed on any mobile device, it enables organizations to provide information to employees anywhere, on any device that has an internet connection.
“These award-winning solutions were closely evaluated by our judges for not only their innovation, but the real results they brought to the organizations,” Brandon Hall Group Chief Executive Officer Mike Cooke said. “That is what makes our technology awards program special — connecting creativity and innovation to direct business results.”
A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, in partnership with 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?
“Our award winners are the most visionary and innovative developers of HCM technology solutions that move organizations forward in serving employees, customers and investors,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer Rachel Cooke, who runs the awards program. “I think everyone can learn from the achievements of our award recipients.”
