Kenexa has entered into a definitive merger agreement with privately- held OutStart. When consummated, this acquisition will expand Kenexa’s reach into the e-learning market and enable it to provide a broader and deeper suite of talent management solutions. Kenexa will integrate OutStart’s Learning Management Suite, which includes social and mobile learning solutions, with Kenexa’s global talent management solutions, including its Performance Management suite.
OutStart, which is based in Boston and has offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia, has more than 300 customers ranging from large global organizations to mid-size companies and government entities. The company delivers a portfolio of inter-related mobile, social and learning knowledge solutions.
Meanwhile, the Kenexa 2x platform was designed to integrate all talent management functions and data, including a unified talent record, mobile tools and robust analytics into one single system that provides a consistent user interface, security features and reporting engine while allowing for a customer’s future global expansion.
