Stand 7 - aNewSpring

Our learning enhancement platform is designed to empower training providers to create exceptional learning products that help professionals learn smarter and perform better. Most LMS’s focus on the management of learning but training providers need a learning platform that focuses on delivering an excellent user experience to their learners.

Being a training provider you could use a learning platform designed for educational, academic or corporate HR use. But, these platforms are not designed with your needs in mind. aNewSpring is specifically designed for use in professional training in any subject field. We have been working with training providers since 2003 and keep developing aNewSpring to meet their needs. Come talk to us about your blended learning strategy.
