PSI Talent Management, a candidate testing and talent management company in Glendale, recently acquired Solvably and Digital Skills Lab (dlab) for an undisclosed amount.

Solvably is a digital learning platform and dlab is a self-assessment platform that helps users learn computer applications. Both assets were previously owned by MassiveU, a social learning platform-as-a-service company.

Solvably and dlab are used to enhance PSI’s own learning system, named AIM, by creating collaborative learning environments with real-world applications. The system is a job-related skills development program that provides personalized learning to employees.

“There has never been a greater need to drive a deeper learning experience and sustainable behavior change for upskilling and reskilling through innovative collaborative and engaging digital experiences than now,” said Angelo Biasi, Director General of MassiveU, in a press release. “We are excited to add the differentiating value that Solvably and dlab bring to PSI’s customer base as we collectively transform at scale.”

PSI Senior Vice President Brad Kendall said in a statement that PSI and Solvably present a solution to the challenge of distance and spatial learning.

“A lot of times when people think about working and learning in a virtual world, they think about what may be missing in terms of social learning,” Kendall said. “Creating a collaborative learning environment that models our world of work today means being ‘distributed’ doesn’t necessarily mean being ‘disconnected’.”
