SumTotal Buys GeoLearning

SumTotal Systems, Inc., has acquired GeoLearning.

“With the acquisition of GeoLearning, SumTotal has snapped up one of the leading LMS players to even more firmly establish its No. 1 position in the learning market and strong position in integrated Talent Management Systems,” says Josh Bersin, president and chief executive officer, Bersin & Associates. “GeoLearning’s strengths in SaaS, extended enterprise solutions and managed services for the SMB and mid-market will help SumTotal continue to grow its leadership position in all segments of the market.”

Founded in 1997, GeoLearning is the leading provider of managed services and on-demand learning management software.

The focus and dedication our team has for customers and this industry is represented in this strategic acquisition. As the true market leader, we will continue to innovate, accelerate, and help our customers to achieve new levels of success.”
