Blue Bell, Pa., May 15, 2023 – PDS®, a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions, today announced that it has formed a partnership with Absorb LMS Software, an AI-powered learning management system (LMS) provider that inspires learning and fuels business productivity. PDS has entered a referral partnership with Absorb and is working together to integrate PDS’ Vista® HCM solution.

“Absorb is a perfect referral partner for PDS,” said Pat Palmer, president, and CEO at PDS. “While our Vista HCM solution offers learning management planning and tracking capabilities, Absorb’s robust solution will offer our customers a configurable platform where they can host their own learning content in an engaging way. Absorb participated in our user group conference event in Fort Worth, Texas in May 2023. We were thrilled with the response from our user community, and already our team is working with Absorb on many proposed customer solutions. We are enthusiastic about the opportunity that this partnership has to offer.”

“Absorb is a modern LMS designed for extensibility and integration, including with HCM solutions. We are very pleased to offer and support PDS as a partner,” said Raechelle Kelley, Senior Vice President, Global Channel Partnerships of Absorb. “Our LMS solution will work well with PDS’ Vista HCM to offer their customers a powerful learning solution. We highly value our partnership with PDS.”
