Sydney, Australia, 12 October 2016 – ELMO Talent Management Software, Australia and New Zealand’s leading provider of cloud-based human resources (HR) software, has acquired e-learning solutions company Techniworks Action Learning in a multi-million dollar deal which will see annual revenues increase to $18 million in FY17.

The acquisition builds on ELMO’s unified talent management proficiency and will strengthen its ability to deliver end-to-end e-learning to over two million users in 500 organisations across the region. With the consolidation of ELMO and Techniworks, clients can now access the region’s most extensive compliance-based e-learning content library.

The addition of Techniworks is a key part of ELMO’s ongoing growth strategy. This acquisition will further enable ELMO to deliver essential e-learning capabilities and increase strategic value with clients.”

ELMO’s Software as a Service (SaaS) business has experienced rapid expansion with a year-on-year increase in license revenue between 40%-50% and revenue forecast for FY17 at $18 million. ELMO has managed to maintain this rate of growth as 93% of its revenue is derived from recurrent license fees. In the last five years, ELMO has grown from a staff of 20 to over 100 employees throughout Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
