Mississippi Picks Pathlore; 60 Percent of U.S. States Run LMS

March 2, 2005

Passage of the “State Employee Management Training Act” in 2003 helped the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration spearhead the purchase of the Pathlore solution. Along with establishing a training program for supervisory personnel, the act buttressed efforts to create employee development opportunities for state workers. The Pathlore solution offers Mississippi’s state workers a Web-based platform for selecting training courses, measuring the outcome of coursework and charting career paths.

“Implementation of such an enterprise-based product will significantly increase the state’s ability to provide for the training needs of state workers and managers at all levels of government,” said Chief Systems Information Officer Cille Litchfield, Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration. “After all proposals were reviewed, we selected Pathlore because the firm met our technology requirements, offered a competitive price, and demonstrated significant experience with state government.”

With today’s announcement, Pathlore has sold learning management solutions to 30 out of 50 states.

“Our goal is to help all 50 states with their enterprise-wide training and development needs,” said Steve Thomas, Pathlore’s chief executive. “We’re uniquely qualified to serve state government in this regard; there’s simply no other vendor who offers the same experience.”
