BOSTON, October 11, 2017 - Skillsoft, the global leader in corporate learning, today announced the latest release of Percipio, the market-leading intelligent learning platform. Designed to meet the needs of the multi-generational modern learner, Percipio allows users to take advantage of pre-curated channels, micro-learning courses, and offers the choice of where, when, and how to learn. Percipio delivers an intuitive design to engage learners, with a consumer-led experience to accelerate learning.

"This latest release of Percipio brings even greater personalization with a brand-new homepage," said Bill Donoghue, chairman and CEO of the Skillsoft Group.
