Bespoke software developer Aplana Software, a member of the I.T. Co Group of companies, participated in Europe’s largest and most popular learning sector event on 1st and 2nd February at Olympia in London.
The annual event, the Learning Technologies & Learning Skills 2017 exhibition, attracted more than 7,500 delegates from around the world including L&D and HR professionals, members of learning associations, and solutions providers.
The Aplana Software exhibition stand presented the company’s wide range of services and experience in software development, mobile app creation, data analytics, eContent authoring, and multilingual localization. For example, Aplana presented mobile applications that enable corporate users to learn using a variety of devices and mobile platforms. The company also demonstrated big data processing and deep data analytics services that will help corporations to better understand employees’ learning needs and develop specialized educational programs that meet those needs.
Two Aplana Software partner companies, IT Academy and Logrus Global, also presented at the joint stand. IT Academy showcased its large electronic content library and experience in implementing large-scale projects for corporate clients, including BP, Aeroflot, Gasprom Oil, and others. The IT Academy training center demonstrated CourseHub, its in-house developed MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) platform, which makes open, geographically-distributed learning projects possible. Logrus Global demonstrated its capabilities in multilingual translation and multimedia localization of presentations, flash catalogues, video clips, trailers, and interactive training courses.

Our joint stand attracted visitors from various industries with an interest in software development, customization services, and learner behavior analysis. We welcomed more than 200 visitors, and are already starting conversations with many of them, helping to find tailored solutions for their needs. Learning Technologies is a leading event of its kind, and our participation will help us find new business partners and advance our capabilities.”
Among the guests at the joint stand were visitors from Great Britain, European countries such as France, Italy, Latvia, Germany and Lithuania, the USA, and other nations. Visitors represented a range of sectors including eLearning, universities, HR and recruiting, finance, and the public sector.
Together, Aplana Software, IT Academy and Logrus Global demonstrated the wide scale of their business services and geography, potential for large-scale production, and capability to successfully implement complex learning projects within limited timeframes and to stringent international standards.
