LONDON, United Kingdom, 10 November 2021 — Rise Up, an innovative global blended learning platform which has recently launched its operations in the UK, announced today that it has been awarded the status of Accredited Learning Technologies Provider by The Learning and Performance Institute (LPI), the leading global authority on workplace learning and development.
The accreditation recognises the company’s commitment to high-quality and process improvement in the provision of learning, development, and training services to clients. To be accredited by the institute, Rise Up followed a rigorous approval process, and was assessed on several key performance indicators including business integrity, client value proposition, sales and marketing, solution capability, and quality management.
In the accreditation report, LPI notes that Rise Up’s holistic blended learning solution leverages many of the desirable features of next generation learning environments. LPI also acknowledges Rise Up’s passion about its human-centred approach which underpins all its activities – starting from design processes to engagement with customers and the desire to drive adaptive learning to deliver a personalised learning plan based on the skills individuals need.
Established in 2014, Rise Up’s entry into the UK builds on its success in over 60 countries where it’s providing big enterprises such as Decathlon, Assystem, AXA, Schneider Electric, Domino’s, Charleroi Airport, and Accor with a unique solution which combines LMS, LXP, and Content Authoring Tool to support a collaborative multi-modular approach to learning. Underpinning all of this is a continuous support model which includes a customer success team, online help and a dedicated academy for L&D to evolve.
Its complete solution is available in 22 languages and is already used globally by more than 1 million learners. The all-in-one blended learning platform is now accelerating growth across key European countries enabling organisations to raise their game by addressing high value development.
Commenting on the news, Edmund Monk, CEO of the LPI (Learning and Performance Institute), said: “We welcome businesses like Rise Up that have a customer-first approach and help maintain a healthy competitive market through innovative products. Their focus on supporting and enabling customers to achieve their goals, delivered through a platform designed for a blended learning delivery, is commendable – especially as we move to hybrid working. Achieving LPI accreditation is no mean feat - the benchmarks are set extremely high and organisations undergoing the accreditation must demonstrate outstanding levels of competence in a number of areas across the business. Everything is in place for Rise Up to rapidly become a market-leading learning technology provider and LPI accreditation reinforces this.”
