[Australia, June 21 2023] – Pinpoint HRM announces its new capability to deliver EdCast by Cornerstone as the first certified Implementation Partner in the ANZ region. This reflects Pinpoint’s commitment to expanding its capabilities and delivering exceptional outcomes to clients through its valued partnership with Cornerstone and the innovative solutions within their Talent Experience Platform (TXP). Cornerstone’s TXP is the only end-to-end, skills-forward, AI-powered system built for the new ways we all work

The acquisition of EdCast in 2022 garnered significant attention, with industry expert Josh Bersin stating, “Overnight … every Cornerstone customer will want to look at EdCast, and every EdCast customer will want to look at Cornerstone. This alone is big news.”

EdCast by Cornerstone is a learning experience platform (LXP) that empowers organisations to transcend the capabilities of their current learning management systems (LMS) or HR software. While seamlessly integrating with different LMS platforms, including Cornerstone’s, EdCast can also be utilised as a standalone learning experience platform.

Since establishing a Cornerstone Practice in 2016, Pinpoint HRM has successfully completed over 130 Cornerstone projects.

As the most experienced partner in Australia, Pinpoint’s dedicated Cornerstone team consists of highly skilled consultants certified across the full suite of Cornerstone modules, and now EdCast and Saba. Supported by HR transformation consultants and change professionals from our Advisory Practice, Pinpoint have built an exceptional team who partner with clients to understand and deliver on their priority business outcomes.

Craig Aunger, Pinpoint HRM Founder and Managing Director, observes, “Over the past decade, Cornerstone has solidified its position as a major player in the global cloud HCM market. It has become the solution of choice for many Australian employers, aligning well with their size and budgets. The recent acquisition of EdCast, backed by substantial private equity, has sparked a wave of innovation, giving Cornerstone a competitive edge in the Learning and Talent Management Solutions segment. We’re excited about the opportunity this brings for our clients and the market.”

Leveraging advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms, EdCast by Cornerstone provides personalised learning recommendations tailored to individual interests, preferences, and learning goals. Users gain access to a wide array of content formats, such as articles, videos, podcasts, courses, and more, sourced from an extensive range of internal and external content providers.

EdCast by Cornerstone offers a comprehensive set of features and tools that facilitate content aggregation, personalised learning paths, social learning, microlearning, analytics, and more.

David Maddison from Cornerstone adds “EdCast by Cornerstone is designed to drive continuous learning, foster knowledge sharing, and enhance skill development in the workplace. We are delighted to welcome Pinpoint HRM as our first certified partner, as they will play a vital role in helping organisations fully leverage the capabilities of EdCast to maximise the potential of their workforce.”

EdCast by Cornerstone empowers organisations to create a collaborative learning environment where employees can freely share knowledge, engage in meaningful discussions, and learn from subject matter experts and peers. By facilitating a culture of learning, it enables employees to continuously acquire new skills and knowledge, driving business growth and agility through continuous learning and development.

Paul Broughton, Head of APJ at Cornerstone, also expressed his excitement, “Pinpoint has consistently demonstrated exceptional capabilities as a Cornerstone Partner. Their dedication to client success, deep expertise in our platform, and commitment to innovation, as exemplified by their adoption of EdCast by Cornerstone, is truly commendable.”

In addition to the EdCast by Cornerstone capability, Pinpoint HRM is excited by and eagerly exploring other innovative solutions within the Cornerstone Talent Experience Platform, including Opportunity Marketplace and Content Studio.
