Velsoft is a leading provider of customizable training materials, enabling customers to deliver high quality and engaging content to their staff or students, using proven materials that can be edited to suit any training situation or audience. Velsoft training solutions enable customers to enjoy the confidence of knowing they are delivering relevant content while avoiding the extremely costly and time-consuming process of developing their own training materials.

Instructors who truly care about generating results for their organization choose Velsoft because of our proven record of helping organizations achieve training goals. Velsoft is a content company, first and foremost. Regardless of whether customers want instructor-led training materials, eLearning, blended learning or custom instructional design, they know that tremendous time and effort has gone into each Velsoft course.

In addition, Velsoft offers technologies that are changing the way trainers use and manage their training programs. Leading these technologies is the Course Compiler; an exclusive technology that puts an unprecedented level of course development and customizing power into the hands of Velsoft customers.

Velsoft listens to what trainers and Human Resources managers want, and has packaged the solution in a unique way that uses technology to expand their training options.

Founded in 1998, Velsoft (short for Velocity Software) is a pioneer in the delivery of ‘editable’ training materials, providing trainers with high-quality material that they can make changes to rather than having to write their own (or worse, buy irrelevant materials). This changed the way companies manage their training programs.

Today, tens of thousands of companies in more than 150 countries worldwide choose Velsoft as vendor of choice for customizable courseware, eLearning, mLearning, SCORM conversion and customizable instructional design and development. These companies include some of the world’s largest brands, such as Microsoft, NASA, the United States Air Force, Pfizer, United Nations, the LA Times, Dell, Lockheed Martin, Revlon, Kraft, Michelin, Princeton University, FedEx, General Motors, Sandals Resorts, Mercedes-Benz and the Executive Office of the President of the United States of America.

Velsoft’s portfolio of courses contains approximately 300 subjects and thousands of modules, and each and every course is customizable in either ILT courseware or eLearning.

Velsoft is one of the fastest growing eLearning companies on the planet and is positioned to continue this growth with our array of outstanding products, differentiating ourselves from competitors through our dedication to customers and suite of unique technologies.
