SilkRoad Completes First Step of ‘OneView’ Consolidation Plan

Remote Learning

SilkRoad Technology completed the first phase of efforts to unify its solutions, and launched enhancements to its RedCarpet onboarding and learning platforms.

Under the banner of “OneView,” SilkRoad is pulling together all of its products into a single platform. The initial update is focused on an updated user interface that provides a consistent experience across solutions. Continuing work aims to bring together all of the company’s current and future capabilities into “a singular, cohesive platform for the modern workforce.”

SilkRoad said a single platform will allow it to improve the platform’s ability to deliver a “cohesive” employee across the employee lifecycle.

Consistent SilkRoad Experience

The enhancements to RedCarpet will allow SilkRoad customers to launch e-learning tasks from Onboarding, and employees to complete courses in Learning, the company said. Learning tracks course status and communicates to Onboarding once a task has been completed. SilkRoad said the new functionality will help employers deliver learning in a more seamless and frictionless way to both new hires and existing employees. 

In May, SilkRoad added features to its recruiting, onboarding, learning and performance modules that included automation for compliance, mobile-only tasks, updated I-9 forms for virtual onboarding, and a modernized UI. The company also added customizable workflows to address employee and operational needs during the Covid-19 pandemic or other business disruptions.

It also expanded its Workforce Agility Planning solution, in March, so that employers can prepare for emergencies by incorporating business and workforce continuity plans into their talent strategies.  

The corporate LMS market remains competitive despite—or maybe because of—the challenges posed by Covid-19 and remote work. According to Technavio, the market will grow by $12.5 billion between 2020 and 2024, a CAGR of more than 23%.
