The deal with Good e-Learning is the second transaction made by the group since LDC’s investment and follows a transaction in 2022 to acquire SaaS digital adoption specialist Nickelled, which now operates as Omniplex Guide. Omniplex Learning has recorded 40%+ compound annual growth rate in revenues over the past three years.

The transaction adds specialist digital learning solutions to Omniplex Learning’s product suite, which includes award-winning authoring tools Articulate 360, Vyond and market-leading Learning Management Software, Docebo, supporting more than 3,000 customer internationally. As part of the transaction, all staff from Good e-Learning will join the team at Omniplex Learning.
