CDSM Interactive Solutions

Origins

As young professional teachers at the turn of the 21st century, it was clear to the founders of CDSM that the digital revolution was going to have a significant impact on teaching and learning. As a result, CDSM was born as an ed-tech company with a difference and led by educationalists with a passion for organisational and personnel development.

Success Factor

The business has developed an online learning management system (LMS) for education and business through recognising that both schools and businesses need an effective digital learning and development function to succeed. CDSM’s profound appreciation of this manifests itself in the design and development of a world-class leading software product for corporate organisations and schools, servicing customers worldwide. CDSM has succeeded by having an unwavering conviction and commitment to the development of an excellent product-set that genuinely supports and enables high quality learning and development. It has also driven international sales development via commercial partnerships which has enabled it to operate effectively and compete against larger international brands. It has also seen a successful national implementation of its learning management system technologies in Wales. By being the prime contractor for the Welsh Government’s Hwb project, CDSM now has a digital blueprint for success when working with ministries for education, especially for those developing economies that are prioritising investment in education for children and young people to transform their lives.

The Future

In the future, the aim will be to grow the international education business, develop a great working environment for its people and focus on commercial corporate business growth in the healthcare and finance verticals. It will also develop its brand, story and service-quality so that customers become CDSM’s champions and evaluate complementary digital learning and assessment products and services that add value to both existing and new customers.
