Research Firm Again Lists Pathlore in the LMS Leader Quadrant

October 24, 2003

According to Gartner, Inc., LMS leaders are vendors who are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market. As part of the October 2003 LMS report, Gartner Analysts James Lundy and Waldir Arevolo analyzed the financial stability, product offerings and customer base of 24 LMS makers.

“We believe we’ve the best feature-to-cost ratio of any enterprise LMS product on the market today,” said Steve Thomas, president and chief executive officer of Pathlore. “And along with a low total cost of ownership, our technical support team keeps setting new company records for the speed and care with which they’re solving our clients’ needs.”

“With over 40 years of experience in the training and development industry I have used several training or learning-management systems, none come close to the capabilities of the Pathlore system,” said Wim Wetzel, director of training and education for NEC America. “The product helps us analyze what our workers’ strengths and weaknesses are, and the reporting tools actually let us calculate the value of training.”

The Magic Quadrant is Gartner, Inc.’s opinion and is an analytical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period. It measures vendors against Gartner defined criteria for a marketplace. The positioning of vendors within a Magic Quadrant is based on the complex interplay of many factors. Gartner does not advise enterprises to select only those firms in the “Leaders” quadrant. In some situations, firms in the Visionary, Challenger, or Niche Player quadrants may be the right matches for an enterprise’s requirements. Well-informed vendor selection decisions should rely on more than a Magic Quadrant.
