It was the personalization that really resonated with us as it allows our staff to work to their own capabilities.


The judges recognised that Filtered’s algorithm to filter out the content that learners either don’t need to know, or know already, was a really innovative approach, and felt that it would resonate well with leading edge enterprises seeking to engage their learners.
