LMS365 welcomes new executive hire in North America

ELEARNINGFORCE International (EFI), the software developer behind the learning platform LMS365, is rapidly expanding in the North America and expects to triple its growth within the next two years. With half of the company’s global business already generated in North America, the company is acquiring new learning management operations in the U.S. and making strategic hires to further this growth trajectory.

To build the company’s operations and distributions in the North American market, the company has acquired the learning management operations of Immersion Technology Services. The two companies were already closely connected as Immersion Technology Services has worked with EFI as the primary distributor and implementor of LMS365 in North America for the past 4 years.

Skillful team drives the American market to increased growth

EFI will be adding eight employees and about 250 North American customers. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg as the number of employees is expected to increase drastically within the following years. Christopher Rousset, who oversaw Immersion Technology Services’ LMS365 practice, will serve as ELEARNINGFORCE’s regional director for the Americas.

“This acquisition and the addition of Christopher to our team will enable us to build on a track record of success and continue to help our customers unlock new levels of productivity and efficiency in their workforce,” says Lars Vestergaard, CEO of ELEARNINGFORCE International

With his educational and professional background, Christopher has acquired a wide range of expertise, enabling him to successfully lead and grow LMS365’s North and Latin American operations.

“Having worked as a partner for EFI since 2011, I am looking forward to leveraging the knowledge accumulated over this period to maximize LMS365’s growth potential in some of the most exciting and dynamic markets. Key to this growth is further developing our partner network in order to extend our reach across the Americas region,” says Christopher Rousset, Regional Director, Americas for ELEARNINGFORCE International.

Learning platform built for Microsoft 365

EFI is provider of LMS365, the only learning platform built directly into Microsoft Office 365 to enable businesses to optimize workforce learning and development.

“As more and more businesses shift to digital channels, many are challenged to help learners find the training they need, identify training they might need, and ensure participation in the training employees are required to complete. LMS665 is a game changer for organizations today,” says Lars.

The ambition is to achieve a significant increase in revenue and accelerate growth in the Americas. With the acquisition, EFI can build on their success, providing current and new customers with the best possible product and services.

The software company was established in 2009 and the cloud-based solution LMS365 was launched in 2015. LMS365 is built for the Microsoft 365 platform and selected as a Microsoft Preferred Solution. The close collaboration with Microsoft and continuous product development – the newest addition being an integration into the Microsoft Teams platform – provides an excellent basis for fulfilling the high ambitions.
