It's that time again: Not only is the end of year approaching, Learntec is also around the corner - and of course we will be one of many exhibitors at the fair.

For our Mobile Training Reinforcement app ECHO, we have received one of the esteemed Brandon Hall Silver Awards for "Performance Support Technology" - this award is virtually the Oscar of the learning industry in North America.

Training Industry Magazine has also recognized SwissVBS as a "Top 20 Training Delivery Company" in 2017.

 At the FocusOn Learning conference, hosted by eLearning Guild, ECHO received the Best Performance Support Solution award. The DemoFest awards are the industry’s only true “people’s choice” competition. We are very proud of these achievements!

In 2004, the Motorola Razr V3 was one of the most popular cell phone choices, according to PC World, and touchscreens were unheard of.
