CALGARY, Alberta, May 10, 2011 - For the second year in a row, Absorb LMS (absorblms.com/ )
(learning management system), one of the industry's most powerful e-learning
software programs, won two coveted prizes at the 2010 Brandon Hall Research
Excellence in Learning Awards.

Absorb took home the Gold for Best Advance in Learning Management
Technology for Global Training and a Silver for Best Advance in Learning
Management Technology for External Training. "Absorb LMS is the perfect tool
for the extended enterprise," says Peter Jurisic, Absorb's Vice President of
Business Development. "Our flexible LMS allows our clients to manage their
global customer channels, resellers, sales associates and employees." Absorb
is already hard at work (absorblms.com/about/clients.asp) around the
world in such verticals as technology, universities, medical, pharmaceutical,
food service, consumer products, public and community service, financial,
training, research, automotive, and many others.

With a unique and intelligent content management system, (

specific training, news, surveys, FAQs, and interfaces based upon a user's
profile. If learners are in Budapest, Atlanta, New York, Santiago, Hong Kong
or Paris and have unique job titles, the information they receive will be
entirely specific to them and translated appropriately. The LMS supports
multiple languages including English, French, Spanish, Italian, German,
Japanese, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Turkish, Dutch, simplified Chinese,
Arabic, traditional Chinese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, and Swedish.
Additional languages are available on demand with quick turnaround and
support. And, Absorb LMS meets the challenges in providing external training
by minimizing the resources, both human and fiscal, required to train workers
at every level of an organization by reducing the technological bloat of
large scale LMS products - offering hundreds of features that maximize
training and benefits to the learners, rather than bogging them down with
useless and difficult components. This streamlined approach means the LMS can
be implemented within hours.

The Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Technology Awards are presented
by Brandon Hall Group (www.brandon-hall.com), a leading research firm
in training and development. The Learning Technology Awards program showcases
innovations in the products in the marketplace for creating and managing
learning, talent, and performance.

"These excellent tools and systems are the cutting edge of learning
technology," says Tom Werner, chief research officer and director of the
Awards program. "They really change for the better how people learn in the
