IKEA selects Giunti Labs as a
preferred supplier of e-learning
Europe's leading learning and mobile content management solution
provider and bespoke content producer, Giunti Labs, has been chosen as
one of the limited number of official providers for e-learning content
production services for the next two years to the Scandinavia-based,
home furnishing products retailer, IKEA.
The continuing growth of e-learning within IKEA prompted the company to
identify up to five high quality e-learning suppliers which can provide
e-learning materials using learning objects, as well as implement and
maintain e-learning programmes.
IKEA carried out a large project when selecting the suppliers for the
Global Framework Agreement.
Originally, IKEA identified 60 potential suppliers, from all over the
world. IKEA narrowed these down to 16 and, from these, selected five -
including Giunti Labs - to be part of its Global Framework agreement.
Ola Badersten, CEO of Giunti Labs Scandinavia, explained: "Giunti Labs
has been a preferred supplier to IKEA since 2007.
"In that time, we have developed and 'localised' three e-learning
programmes, including IKEA's largest e-learning programme of the past
two years. We're delighted to have been reappointed as one of IKEA's
five approved e-learning content suppliers for the next two years."
About Giunti Labs
Giunti is unique in the international publishing industry.
In 1497, Giunti publishers and typographers in Florence, together with
others in Venice, began modern book manufacturing. Over the years
Giunti has built a 'historical catalogue' of huge dimensions, through a
gradual process of 'fusion' of different publishers, but also through
the creation of new brands, including Giunti Labs. Giunti Editore now
includes 20 companies in the publishing sector.
Giunti Labs, which has its global headquarters in Italy and offices in
London (UK), Frankfurt (Germany), Lund (Sweden) and in Boston (US),
provides a wide range of services, in response to any content, learning
and knowledge management need, covering:
solutions for content, learning & knowledge management
technological solutions for mobile & wireless
Giunti Labs provides

content management technology. This suite is interoperable with all
major vendor-driven and open source LMS and VLE solutions in the market
including Plateau, Oracle, SumTotal, Saba, WebCT, Blackboard, Sakai,
LRN and Moodle.
Moreover, Giunti Labs does not just adhere to the international
standards relating to the LMS/LCMS world, it is one of the
organisations that helps to determine and drive these standards:
co-writing and developing them. Giunti Labs plays a key role in most of
the international institutions for the definition of eLearning
specifications (IEEE LTSC, ISO/IEC JTC1/SC36, CEN/ISSS WSLT, AICC, IMS,
ADL-SCORM and OKI).
