Meridian Wins Brandon Hall 2013 Excellence in Technology Award

Unique Approach to Search Functionality Wins for Best Advance in Learning Management Technology

HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- Meridian Knowledge Solutions, a leading provider of integrated learning and performance management systems, announced today that it has been recognized with a Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology award. This year saw the company win the Gold award in the Best Advance in Learning Management Technology category for their unique approach to search functionality.

"Almost all customers across the industry have been talking about the need for a superior search experience. A search engine that delivers more relevant content can save time and money, as well as provide important business intelligence to learning professionals," stated Meridian Product Manager, Bridget Ishmael. "We are excited to be able to share this unique advance with our customers, allowing them to better understand which content is being accessed, launched, abandoned or completed."

Virtually every experience on the web today starts with a search term and relies on the power of the search engine to filter the results. Unfortunately, many LMS applications don't have the power to perform these robust searches due to the limitations of their built-in search engines to read only meta-tag information. Meridian's Limitless Search Engine breaks through those boundaries. Entering a term into the search engine will yield results that match not only meta-tags, but results based on matches within the content itself.

Jason Marceau, Chief Operations Officer at Meridian, said, "This award acknowledges how we have addressed a key use case within the training industry to break the meta-tag barrier. An important part of Meridian's product development process is refinement through use case oriented design. This is much greater than just features, as it is based on how a design is truly going to solve a business need."

The award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group senior analysts, and executive leadership 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?

"It is our honor to recognize this year's award winners, who exemplify the commitment to innovation and excellence that drives growth and over-the-top business results," said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group.

Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Office of Brandon Hall Group who runs the awards program, stated, "With the innovation and unique differentiators demonstrated in this year's entries, it is easy to see why these organizations are tremendously successful."
