As you reflect on your training goals, you might be tempted to assume that a learning management system is just a place to store your eLearning courses.
Bridge Learn is much more than a content library. It’s a proactive partner for reaching your key training objectives. It deliberately guides your people toward the perfect content for effective upskilling, providing them with the knowledge they need when they need it.
Besides, Bridge users aren’t just getting an LMS. They’re getting an elegantly streamlined and fully intuitive set of capabilities that transform the admin side of training into a walk in the park. They’re also getting a formidable array of technical, implementation, and integration support that’s backed by a team of experts who eat, sleep, and breathe L&D.
Combined, this cumulation of capabilities ensures that you’ll effortlessly achieve your training goals. Here’s how Bridge helps you reach your learning objectives—and why those objectives matter.
How Bridge LMS Helps With Training
We’re well past the stage of treating training as a nice-to-have. Data drawn from a Bridge-sponsored research study highlights the variety of high-value factors that motivate employee training, including:
There’s no question that an upskilled, engaged, and fully compliant workforce comes with its fair share of advantages. In fact, the benefits of good training are highly tangible: according to a Deloitte report on motor dealers, the top 30% of dealers in terms of net profit invest higher in training than average ones—and the top 5% invest higher still.
While Deloitte’s study is illuminating, it’s worth noting that how you invest in your training initiatives is just as important as investing in the first place. Realizing your training goals takes a combination of powerful learning capabilities, administrative ease, and first-class support—and that’s exactly what Bridge brings to the table.
Read on for some key insights into how Bridge can breathe life into your L&D ambitions.

1) Defining and Addressing Key Training Needs in an Intuitive Learning Environment
Bridge is packed with capabilities that turn training into second nature for your learners.
Between its skills recommendations, content creation options, and intuitive interface, the platform doesn’t just give you a nudge toward your training goals—it helps you define them. Bridge allows you to build targeted content around the upskilling requirements it identifies, and encourages your learners to effortlessly engage with their L&D objectives.
Let’s take a closer look.
Targeted AI Upskilling and Learning Recommendations
You can’t achieve your training goals if you’re not sure what those goals should look like. Ask yourself:
- What are the skills gaps my organization is facing?
- Which employees need to upskill, and what skills do they need to acquire?
- What kind of training and resources can support my upskilling targets?
If you’re not sure how to answer those questions, Bridge can do it for you. Its powerful, AI-driven upskilling capabilities automatically identify trending skills based on job titles, making it easy to spot any gaps. Bridge can automatically tag learning courses with the skills they teach, and recommend those courses to the people who need them most. This makes it easy to crystallize high-priority training goals and set your people on the path to meeting them.
Intuitive, Mobile-Friendly Learning Environments
Bridge doesn’t just make it easy to select training courses. The whole interface is built with usability at its heart: your learners (and your admins) will have no trouble navigating the platform and using it to achieve their training objectives.
Take Bridge’s mobile capabilities, for example. With the help of our app, your people can keep on top of their training no matter where they’re based or what device suits them best. Frontline employees, field workers, and everyone in between can complete training offline and away from their desks, ensuring your people’s training habits are consistently in lockstep with your wider objectives and timetables.

Content Creation for Goal-Driven Knowledge Sharing
If your training goals extend beyond the parameters of your existing library of content, Bridge can help. Get off-the-shelf content, courtesy of a range of top-tier content providers, or create exactly the resources you need with the help of Bridge’s built-in authoring tool. It’s straightforward enough that your organization’s subject matter experts will have no trouble sharing their knowledge and breaking down information silos in a matter of moments.
Looking for more advanced content authoring capabilities? Bridge has you covered there, too. Our advanced authoring solution, Gomo, is packed with powerful features, dazzling visual themes, and fully responsive design—a recipe for engaging content that’s bound to result in higher levels of retention and engagement.
Analytics Tools for Reliable Compliance Training
Every organization’s training goals will include some variation on compliance training: it’s mandatory, and the price of failing to comply can be high.
Bridge offers an array of functionalities that make it easy to achieve your compliance training goals. You can instantly update compliance content to reflect changing regulations, measure completion rates with our easy-to-master learning analytics tool, and give deskless learners every chance to complete their training with the help of the Bridge mobile app.

Onboarding Capabilities for an Ingrained Training Culture
Employee onboarding is all about minimizing the time it takes to get a new hire up and running without overwhelming them with a day-one avalanche of materials. Your new recruits need to know exactly what training is expected of them, and they need that training delivered at a sustainable pace.
Bridge Learn is well equipped to tread this line. Required courses are always front and center in the platform, and Bridge’s automated learning journeys ensure that additions to a new hire’s onboarding materials arrive at sensible intervals—giving your people a well-balanced path to productivity.
2) Automating Administrative Processes to Facilitate Training Progress
Achieving your training goals isn’t just about supplying the right learning: it’s about supporting that learning with good administration and streamlined workflows. That’s why automation is threaded throughout the Bridge platform, clearing the path for effective training with the help of hands-free reporting, learning pathways, and AI recommendations.
Hands-Free Report Distribution to Keep Training on Track
Bridge’s analytics tool isn’t just a great way to visualize learner data in digestible ways—it’s also an administrator’s dream. You can use Bridge Analytics to automate the distribution of reports to key stakeholders, ensuring everyone’s up to date on the information that matters.
Automated Learning Pathways for Consistent Training Practices
Bridge’s automated learning pathways allow you to space out learning over a period of time, and intersperse that learning with checkpoints in the form of feedback, 1:1 meetings, quizzes, and more.
Learning pathway automation doesn’t just give your admins a break—it also turns training into a sustainable habit that quickly becomes ingrained into your development culture.

AI-Powered Course Tagging and Skills Mapping for Admin-Free Training Recommendations
Bridge automatically tags learning content for skills and recognizes the skills your people need based on their job titles and industry. When done manually, these tagging and skills mapping processes are vastly time-consuming—or exorbitantly expensive when outsourced to an agency. Worse still, manual skills mapping ultimately produces a static picture of a skills base that’s inevitably subject to change as your people develop and as new skills rise to the fore.
With Bridge, all these processes can be achieved without any intervention on the part of your admins, allowing them to get on with the more nuanced and human tasks that should be filling their time.
Smart Groups and Auto Enrolments for Relevant Training Delivery
Bridge learners are automatically assigned a smart group based on factors like their roles, departments, and levels of seniority. Once they’re in a smart group, they’ll receive training relevant to that group—ensuring every employee has a tailored understanding of the training goals that are expected of them. All without lifting a finger.
