WATERLOO, Ontario, Jan. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Celebrating a year of strong growth and innovation, Axonify today announced key company milestones for 2019, including more than 30% revenue growth. Axonify users also answered more than 50 million questions a month in the platform, in more than 50 languages across 150 + countries. Critical to the organization’s momentum was a focus on delivering learning to organizations with dispersed frontline workforces and establishing new partnership relationships with SAP SuccessFactors and Kronos Workforce Dimensions, among others.

“Last year, more than ever, we saw an increased interest from organizations wanting to accurately tie the impact of learning to their business goals,” said Carol Leaman, President and CEO of Axonify. “As a result, we have seen widespread adoption of Axonify Impact across our customer base. Through the power of AI and machine learning, this industry-first product has proven that Axonify is driving, on average, a 29% improvement in achievement of key KPIs that have bottom line impact for our clients. Leaders across learning, HR and Operations have always wanted to measure the impact learning is having on their business, but haven’t been able to until now.”

In 2019 Axonify added over 60 new employees, including several in Europe to expand its presence in that market. Axonify also hosted its largest Community Conference to date attracting hundreds of customers and fans from around the world.
