WALLDORFSAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that as of the third quarter 2016, more than 2,000 customers have chosen SAP Workforce Performance Builder software since its launch in 2012, providing their employees with training whenever and wherever they need it.

The SAP solution is available on premise and in the cloud and enables customers to create and deliver learning content, including new in-application user assistance. The cloud edition of SAP Workforce Performance Builder saw high-triple-digit user growth rates in 2016 alone, reflecting the strength of and demand for the SAP Education offering in the cloud.

SAP Workforce Performance Builder helps companies manage all areas of modern corporate learning such as rollout and performance support, change management, compliance and soft skill training. In addition, it delivers next-generation user assistance, providing context sensitive help through pop-up windows in the application.
