BURLINGTON, Mass. -- October 8, 2013

Mzinga^® (, a leading provider of enterprise social
software solutions and services targeting the learning, marketing and support
markets for employees, customers and partners, announced that TripAdvisor, the
world’s largest and most popular travel site, with more than 80 million
monthly visitors, has selected Mzinga’s OmniSocial Learning platform to power
its “Compass” Learning and Development platform for their thousands of
worldwide associates.

“TripAdvisor has been in a period of significant growth via acquisition and
organic expansion,” says David First, who leads Organizational Effectiveness
at TripAdvisor. “We have an innovative and forward-thinking culture, and we
believe in working hard, playing hard, investing in our employees and flexing
wherever possible to support balanced work-life. It was critical for us to
find a single solution for our worldwide learning needs. Mzinga’s OmniSocial
Learning platform met our business needs, integrated to our enterprise HR
system, Workday, and allowed us to offer world-class content from such
providers as Skillsoft, and Harvard Business Publishing. Most important to us
was working with a partner that took customer service as seriously as we do –
and Mzinga was a great fit.”

Compass offers a rich catalog of e-learning content, and features company
announcements, event calendars, and links to Instructor-Led Training events.
Additionally the Compass portal presents other useful content such as recent
twitter posts from TripAdvisor Careers as well as business and
management-related tips from Harvard Business Publishing.

“When I think of social businesses, I think of TripAdvisor. As the leading
Social Learning provider in the marketplace, I’m thrilled that Mzinga was
selected as the platform that every employee at TripAdvisor uses to advance
their career and help grow their company,” said Andrew Hallowell, Chairman &
CEO of Mzinga.
