Relias Wins EdTech Breakthrough Award for LMS Platform of the Year

Healthcare education solutions company recognized for excellence in healthcare workforce learning platform 

Morrisville, NC (June 8, 2023) — Relias, an industry-leading software company specializing in workforce enablement solutions for healthcare and human services providers, today announced that the Relias Platform has been named LMS Platform of the Year by the EdTech Breakthrough Awards.  

Part of Tech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization, the EdTech Breakthrough Awards recognize the best companies, products, and services in educational technology spanning a number of industries. This year’s program attracted more than 2,400 nominations from over 16 different countries throughout the world. Tech Breakthrough has worked with hundreds of industry-leading companies, including Amazon, Intel, Cisco, Spotify, Sprint, HP, Qualcomm, Lenovo, Comcast, Philips, Dell and many more.  

The Relias Platform — Relias’ software as a service — embraces the principal attributes that the EdTech Breakthrough Awards seek to recognize in the global educational technology field.  

This award acknowledges Relias as a leading provider of workforce education and enablement solutions that empowers organizations and their staff with easy-to-use, integrated tools and best-in-class learning content.  

“By focusing on innovation and technology, Relias has created not only the gold standard of training resources but also solutions that enable every organization to elevate their staff and the care they provide. Congratulations on being our pick for ‘LMS Platform of the Year!’” said James Johnson, managing director of EdTech Breakthrough. “Learners want engaging and interactive courses on current, relevant, and timely topics. From innovative trainings that better engage and prepare staff, to seamless integrations and solutions that reduce risk, time, and money, the technology behind Relias is always focused on simplifying responsibilities and improving care across the continuum.” 

Relias’ experts create a variety of course experiences that cater to every learning style and include elements like real-life simulations, podcasts, story-based learning, microlearning, virtual and augmented reality, and gamification. The Relias Platform seamlessly integrates with existing systems and alleviates antiquated processes for managers like manual data entry.  

“The Relias Platform stands apart as an all-in-one solution, delivering an effortless experience for administrators, an engaging experience for learners, and keeping organizations compliant year after year in a highly efficient way,” said Maria Samot, Senior Vice President of Content at Relias. “We’re honored that this recognition acknowledges the ways Relias provides reliable simplification to our clients.”  

“This award speaks to our ability to fully understand the needs of our customers and deliver solutions that meet them,” said Shawn Barber, Chief Product Officer at Relias. “Relias has created the gold standard of training resources and solutions that enable organizations to elevate and support their staff in meaningful ways — and that of course translates to providing top-notch care to those who need it most.” 

In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, the quest for excellence in learning management systems (LMS) has become a focal point for organizations seeking to enhance their training programs and empower their workforce. 

LMS has historically centered around mandatory compliance training for employees. The marketplace began to evolve 10-15 years ago, as most systems didn’t consider the user/learner’s experience. To be a true differentiator in the marketplace, modern systems like Relias’ look to incorporate a holistic, personalization journey for the learner, focusing on a clean, easy-to-use interface and engaging resources. Both aspects — managing employees’ learning and a user’s experience within that learning platform — are a must-have for any organization looking to train, retrain, and upskill their staff.
