Dematic Selects Brightspace

D2L Chosen by Worldwide Automation Leader

Press Release

Global learning technology leader D2L announced today that Dematic, a leading provider of supply chain automation, has launched its global certification program using the Brightspace platform.

Dematic has a workforce of over 8000 employees who design, build, implement, and support automated solutions for warehouses, distribution centers, and production facilities. The company offers 10 certifications, with many more planned. The certification program validates the competencies of Dematic’s global talent pool of engineers and sales teams. Before choosing Brightspace, Dematic had used a manually managed program.

“We required an automated solution but were not willing to compromise the value of the individualized feedback that we offered,” says Cara Scott, Certification Program Manager at Dematic. “We researched and developed a score card for at least 10 other solutions. Brightspace was the only automated solution that allowed us to offer an appropriate balance of canned and personalized feedback, and it will help us get our people certified and contributing to projects as soon as possible.”

“We’re incredibly excited to be working with an innovative company like Dematic,“ said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. “Like D2L, they’re leaders in their field, and we’re looking to build on our strong partnership.”



Dematic is a supplier of integrated automated supply chain technology, software and services and is listed as the world’s third-largest materials handling systems supplier.
