Platinum Partner Learning Pool to expand Totara LMS services in the UK

November 14, 2012 by Emma Whiteside

Totara LMS Platinum PartnerLearning Pool’s promotion to Platinum Partner for Totara LMS means that we will be able to deliver an enhanced learning service to our customers.

Learning Pool was one of the early adopters of  Totara, a custom distribution of Moodle, and this recognition comes on the back of a number of successful implementations of  Totara in local government and the hospitality industry within the UK.

Speaking today, Sam Barbee, Learning Pool’s Head of Sales and Marketing said “Our customers are really excited about the opportunities that Totara brings their organisations. We’re increasingly finding ourselves in conversations about talent management and performance appraisal and the features that Totara brings offer a low cost, flexible solution to meet this challenge.”

Andy Kirk, Channel Account Manager for Totara LMS Europe, welcomed Learning Pool’s promotion to Platinum status saying “The growth of the Totara LMS partner network internationally is very strong and companies like Learning Pool are doing a great job of bringing this disruptive technology into new sectors where it can make a real difference. Learning Pool customers in the public sector are fortunate to have such a strong partner who they can buy from easily through the government’s G-Cloud service.”

Northumberland County Council has recently launched Totara LMS across a dispersed geographical area. In just eight months the team have established an engaging talent management system with 5,000 active users. Paul Brooks, Learning and Organisational Development Manager, Northumberland County Council said “We’re really excited about the opportunity Totara brings Northumberland Council. Not only have we created a fresh and exciting learning culture within the council, but through the successful roll out of the “Learning Together” platform, our new talent management solution, we’re confident that we will deliver powerful results and prove a real return of investment”.

Totara LMS is available to government through the G-Cloud service from Learning Pool which means that public sector customers can use this framework to procure Totara without a cumbersome buying process. Our Platinum Partner status means that we will be able to bring even more innovations to our customers and will be working closely with Totara Learning Solutions in New Zealand on a number of feature enhancements through to the end of this year.

    • Claire Davies, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council

      Thought-provoking speakers, and as always, an event that positively encourages getting up and talking to each other!

    • Julie Ann Foweraker, Tendring District Council

      "Huge thanks for your participation in our event yesterday. Tendring could not be more pleased with the success of the day which in no small part is also down to the efforts of you both.  We were absolutely mobbed at times and you must both have been demoing in your sleep last night!

      Our Chief Executive was thoroughly impressed and I have received many favourable comments this morning (including chats crossing the car park) about how wonderful the whole concept is.  To hit more than half our workforce with such important information in a single day is amazing."

    • Kate Price, London Borough of Bexley

      A good mixture of speakers and activities.
