bsoco awards 2015 : e-learning rankings revealed

bsoco, the leader in community benchmarks for professional software, has published its 2015 award rankings in the category of e-learning on its website at : ten developers have received awards for the performance of their tools.

The bsoco awards are intended to be comprehensive and relevant. By combining the assessment of a jury of industry professionals with the opinions of thousands of users, we achieve unmatched relevance and provide an innovative perspective.

Each year we present awards to developers of various management, business and e-learning software.

“This is a successful start to the new year”, says Holger Ruhfus, Managing Director of edoceo Germany. “We see these awards as an acknowledgement for what we have achieved, but at the same time they also inspire us to develop and expand our software further.” At the awards ceremony, which takes place each year as part of LEARNTEC, e‐doceo won two awards in the e‐learning category. They were awarded for the best business software solutions. LMS received the bsoco gold award, and e‐doceo’s authoring software (ecmg) bronze. An international jury with experts from the industry judged the individual tools. The final ranking is based on their ratings, together with ratings provided by customers. For the second time in a row, e‐doceo placed successfully. Ruhfus: “It is precisely the feedback that we get from customers and users here at the fair that makes the bsoco awards so valuable to us.”


“We at Adobe, are thrilled to receive this prestigious award and this validation from an extremely eminent jury only goes on to show the continuous product innovation which keeps Adobe Captivate significantly ahead of the curve amongst all rapid e-learning authoring tools globally.” Nipun Sharma, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Adobe Captivate


„ We are particularly proud of the BSOCO award as it is mostly based on user-votes – and usability is the one thing we are most importantly focusing on during our continuous development efforts“

“Receiving this award is not only a very valuable recognition for our solution, even more so we believe it reflects the growing need for easier and smarter tools at the intersection of training and communication which can be used in corporate environments.” Sebastian Walker, CEO of SlidePresenter



The bsoco awards are given at two important trade shows in Europe thus offering high exposure on the international scene: the Learntec show in Karlsruhe (Germany) for the category of  e-learning,  and the Human Resources Solutions Fair in Paris (France) for the category of HR.
