Webanywhere is a UK based learning technology provider that offers a range of online education and training solutions for public, private and third sector organisations. Products include learning management system (LMS) solutions, high quality e-learning content, bespoke web design for schools and more. From when the company was established in 2003 it had been headquartered in Keighley, near Bradford, but now has relocated to a new head office in Leeds.
This new location has become very important for Webanywhere because of the growing demand for e-learning services from Leeds-based corporate clients, as well as those based in London and other core cities. Moving to the centre of Leeds will better allow them to provide onsite training to local clients, better access to major regions of England, and the ability to tap into Leeds’ wealth of workforce talent.
Webanywhere is not just active in the UK. During the last few years they have successfully moved into international markets such as North America, mainland Europe and Asia. The establishment of offices in Katowice, Poland and Chicago, US shows the company’s commitment to growing their business outside of the UK.
Webanywhere’s offerings include learning management system solutions based on open source LMS Moodle, a custom-built school website system – School Jotter – and numerous bespoke communication and collaboration apps.
They are an authorised Google Apps reseller, Moodle certified services provider and Totara LMS platinum partner. The company is continually working on new and innovative online learning solutions for both the education and private sectors. Webanywhere’s e-learning solutions are developed with a focus on delivering the best possible user experience, saving both time and money for its clients in the process. Ease of use is also front of mind during the development of Webanywhere solutions, as the company wants to make elearning as accessible as possible.
The new location of the Webanywhere head office is in the City Exchange development, which is part of the Trinity shopping and business complex. They moved into these premises in August, 2014.
Moving to Leeds not only brings the company closer to important corporate clients, but also provides better access to London and international airports.
The move is accompanied with a number of new vacancies at the company in marketing, sales and technical support positions.
Both the move and hiring of new personnel are part of Sean Gilligan’s – CEO of Webanywhere – plan to take the company to the next level. The rapid growth that the company has experienced during the past 10+ years is showing no signs of slowing, especially with the entire online learning market expected to double in 2015 and continue booming during the next few decades. Most experts agree that e-learning is the future of organisational learning and is taking on an increasingly major role in the education sector.
Webanywhere is a fast growing organisation that is on its way to becoming an international leader in e-learning technology for educational establishments and private organisations. Since 2003, the company has grown to over 150 people in staff across their UK, Poland and US offices. They have worked with more than 4,000 educational establishments and businesses throughout the UK, Europe, the US and the Asia/Pacific region on all types of high impact online learning projects and their solutions support over 3 million users worldwide.
