CommPartners and BadgeCert Announce Strategic Partnership

CommPartners and BadgeCert Announce Strategic Partnership

Columbia, MD – July 17, 2018. CommPartners, a leading provider of Learning Management Software, webcast, and livestream solutions, and BadgeCert, a leader in digital badging/credentialing announce they have formed a partnership to fully integrate BadgeCert’s digital credentialing services with CommPartners’ Elevate Learning Management System. Through this integration, digital badges or credentials can be automatically awarded based on participation or achievement in education programs offered through Elevate LMS.

Digital Badges have become increasingly important as a verifiable way to measure competency and share levels of expertise. Through the integration with Elevate, host organizations will be able to offer digital badges with detailed metadata for stackable or micro credential programs. Badges can be custom designed through standard templates or organizations can upload their own designs. Each learner will have a universal portfolio to manage and share earned badges.

“Validation through digital badges has become critically important as a way to verify achievement,” states Richard Finstein, CEO of CommPartners. “We have known the folks at BadgeCert for many years. When we searched for a partner, we wanted a company that is as committed to customer service as we are.”

“We are thrilled to partner with CommPartners as they have consistently exceeded their clients’ expectations with respect to high quality customer service and technology innovation,” says Ginger Malin, Ph.D., Founder and EVP of Business Development at BadgeCert. “This partnership will provide organizations with a seamless administrative experience, while also delivering significant value to learners as they can now digitally share their verified credentials across the web.”

About BadgeCert

BadgeCert enables your organization to recognize stakeholders’ accomplishments with 100% verifiable digital badges. The company was founded by expert educators, technologists and entrepreneurs on the premise that recognizing effort, participation, contributions and accomplishments is important to motivate people to develop, progress and achieve.
