Multi-instance Solution, Panorama, Allows Customized Training at Scale for Customers, Partners, and Resellers

BOSTON – December 15, 2022 – Thought Industries, the leading enterprise learning platform for customer, partner and professional training, today announced it has won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold award in the “Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for External Training” category.

This year’s submission, “Scalable Sub-License Management Using a Multi-Tenant Solution,” focused on Thought Industries multi-tenant solution, Panorama. Panorama empowers businesses to scale their learning to a vast array of partners, resellers, and other external customers from a single platform. Its powerful Delegated Administration reporting functionality also allows business owners to measure success across all their instances from a single, simple interface. 

This is Thought Industries sixth consecutive recognition by the Brandon Hall Group, signifying a track record of strong performance and excellence in technology. In 2021, Thought Industries won a gold award in the same category for its Reporting Hub, demonstrating the exceptional power of the entire Thought Industries platform.

ZoomInfo, a Thought Industries client using more than 30,000 Panorama instances to scale its customer training, has achieved many impressive business results with the feature, including:

  • 108% growth in product adoption for customers completing a course
  • 15% increase in renewals for customers with at least one user completing a course
  • 5-10% uplift in upsells for customers engaged in learning

“Our customers use our Panorama multi-tenant solution every day to scale their learning businesses; provide custom experiences to their customers, partners, and resellers; and generate the insights they need to continually improve and grow their businesses,” said Barry Kelly, CEO of Thought Industries. “We are incredibly excited and humbled to be recognized by the Brandon Hall Group for excellence in technology for a sixth year in a row, and look forward to more innovation in 2023.” 

“From our research, we know that external training has become a key business driver for many of our members,” said Rachel Cooke, Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and awards program head. “Winners of our Excellence in Technology awards are the pace-setters in ensuring organizations have the leading-edge tools they need to evolve and prosper in the challenging environment we all work in.”
