Kindly share your feedback on how GoodFirms has been doing so far in increasing your visibility among potential clients.
It’s still early days for our Acorn profile on GoodFirms, but every step we make online grants us better visibility, and we look forward to strengthening our ties with GoodFirms.
Please introduce your product and give a brief about your role within the organization.

I am the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Acorn, developer of the Acorn Performing Learning Management System. My role involves overseeing high-level development, marketing strategy, people, and operations. I am very hands-on in every department. I do my best to attend every meeting amongst my teams and want to make sure everyone’s voice is heard within our company in terms of direction and improving processes.

Acorn is an AI-powered Performance Learning Management System (PLMS) that addresses the topics of performance & learning in one platform, allowing enterprises, governments and other orgs worldwide to consistently align individual growth with business objectives. With Acorn, leaders can continually assess and improve learners based on specific company and role-based capabilities. The perfect enabler for employee training, onboarding, compliance training, association learning, & more.

What was the objective behind coming up with this software?

Across our years in the L&D space, we've spoken directly to thousands of global industry leaders and end users. We've heard many times over from both sides of the table that corporate learning is disconnected from performance; and there isn't a proper solution for this problem. Legacy LMS and Performance solutions have failed to inspire growth. Expectations for businesses, governments, nonprofits and other institutions to perform have skyrocketed as the world gets more connected, busier and focused on efficiency. However, organizations are bogged down by their slowest link – smart people who could be operating at their maximum potential but aren’t.

Acorn is the antidote as a PLMS - we've created this software solution to address these issues head-on. Modern L&D experiences need a Performance Learning Management System (PLMS) platform to link learning and performance so that organizations can meet their goals in one place. It is important that this is done in one system, after decades of failed integrations from disparate systems built for different goals.

To L&D and HR professionals, Acorn is the platform for building inspiring and efficient training experiences that engage people to be exceptional at their companies.

To business leaders, Acorn is the PLMS platform that tightly syncs L&D investments to performance, helping organizations meet and exceed their goals.

How is your software beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other software alternatives available in the market?
Our integrations and partnerships such as LinkedIn Learning, Skillsoft, Go1, and Microsoft Teams. Each one is amongst the first alliance of its kind in Australia. Integrations enhance the employee experience on our platform and provide additional value to our current technology stack with direct access to otherwise inaccessible content and segregated collaboration services. These integrations complement many of our clients’ job family frameworks, giving them the ability to map specialized third-party content to their unique needs. It further enables them to automate their capability development mapping and planning.

Our development strategy is innovative and collaborative. We utilize iterative improvement cycles. We plan according to triannual, annual, and quarterly roadmaps. Our goals are focused on what customers and clients actually seek. We utilize the knowledge of subject matter experts to guide our path.

Our support is a huge focus and strength for the Acorn product. Typically, IT support gets a bad reputation, but we are able to promise a 30-minute response time in our service level agreement, and we deliver. Our support team aims to meet specific KPIs which are linked to consistent feedback.
What industries do you generally cater to? Which industries in general are highly benefiting by using your software?

Because of how our software is built specifically to align individual growth with business objectives, we work best with organizations in industries such as government, nonprofit, software & tech, healthcare, resources, legal, and industrial sectors. 

What are the key features of your software that makes it stand apart from your competitor products in the market?

We have 4 key features in mind when we designed our PLMS. The platform is to allow users to focus on impact and not overload, deliver effective blended learning, link learning with performance, and lastly, report in minutes not hours.  Apart from this, we focus on making sure we integrate with existing internal systems and third-party content providers, security compliance (including IRAP, ISO, and WCAG), SCORM and TinCan compliance, gamification features, and capability mapping. All features of our product come ready-to-use within Acorn. 

What is the customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
One hundred percent. To cater to our customers’ needs and requirements, we make certain that from to get-go our solution matches the solution a potential client needs and is looking for. We also provide an onboarding questionnaire to confirm we meet every expectation.
Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what is the percentage of repeat customers that you have?
Yes, during our past nine years, we have maintained a 100% retention rate.
Does your software product provide any resource or knowledge section for its users? If yes, what kind of material is provided to your users to help them get acquainted with your product?
We provide a wiki full of tip sheets, guides and patch notes. We provide in-person training. We also have Acorn Academy, which is filled with video guides and courses on how to use our product.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
We have a support desk that delivers phone and email support, ticket support, and live chats as needed. We also have dedicated Customer Success Managers. Our support has enabled us to commit to and succeeds in providing a 30-minute response time in our SLA within AEST working hours. Whether that is technical support or minor bug fixes, we guarantee that all our customers are contacted by a dedicated Customer Success Manager less than half an hour after the first flag something with us. As part of our service to clients, we conduct regular meetings at their requested frequency, where stakeholders can engage the Acorn team with questions and provide feedback to ensure that our solution is the best-in-market product for the needs of their organizations.
What has been the revenue for your product for 2020?
About 3 million.
Where do you see your product in the next 10 years?
Our main focus will be the shift to incorporating capabilities within organizations. We want to be able to empower our users to find learning, career, and personal opportunities that are relevant to their skill sets. We want to enable clear development pathways and goals for each individual and organization within our ecosystem.
