Fidelis Named Top 10 Technology Solutions

We are truly honored to be named a top 10 educational technology solution by EdTech Insights.


“LRM is a tool to make sure that all the learners have mentors and coaches, that they belong to learning communities, have a strong purpose for their education and a clear learning pathway to pursue that purpose. “Unlike Student Information Systems (SIS) and Learning Management Systems (LMS) that ignore relationships, LRM recognizes that. At its core, learning is a fundamentally relational endeavor,” says Counselman. The company’s LRM platform offers everything for advanced learning—from personalized learning systems and unlimited digital content access to interactive student portfolios.

LRM Has Arrived

By: Gunnar Counselman, Founder & CEO

The CODiE Awards just announced that Learning Relationship Management (LRM) will have its own category in 2016.

To us at Fidelis, and to me personally, that’s a pretty big and exciting deal. It’s the latest and potentially biggest thing to happen that suggests that LRM is taking its rightful place alongside SIS, and LMS as a must have technology for schools that care about outcomes, and for companies that want to partner with those schools.

After all, it was just just 14 short months ago that we introduced the first commercially available LRM. I distinctly remember contemplating the risk of starting a new category of edTech with my board, agonizing over the decision with my brilliant partner and wife Anna Counselman, and then deciding that taking the risk was the best way to accomplish our mission: to transform the way the world learns to make it fundamentally relational and personalized.

My favorite accomplishment is always the next one, but I think it’s nice to occasionally pause to chronicle how far you can come in a short time.  Here’s the last year in review that led us here:
