PlayerLync and PAIRIN Partner to Bring Online Soft Skills Curriculum to Front Line Workers

Denver-based start-ups, PlayerLync and PAIRIN, have partnered to bring together the most comprehensive operational performance and learning solution available with the most complete soft skills curriculum ever amassed.


Denver, CO – PlayerLync started in Denver in 2011 and has over 700,000 users in more than 11,000 locations nationwide who use their platform to deliver corporate training, particularly for teams that work on their feet. PlayerLync’s partnership with PAIRIN provides a first-time opportunity to offer over 300 soft skills micro-lessons to their users.

The two organizations have partnered together on a mutual referral and reseller agreement that will benefit both Denver businesses during their growth phases. PlayerLync has leveraged PAIRIN’s curriculum on their demo systems for months to gauge interest, and will now also provide a free lesson for all existing customers. The two companies will partner on joint marketing to include webinars, email campaigns and case studies.

“We are excited for this opportunity to partner with PlayerLync, a company that is doing important work in the corporate workforce development space,” said Michael Simpson, PAIRIN CEO and Co-founder. “Their platform uniquely addresses the needs of organizations with front line workers, but that struggle with bandwidth limitations, 100’s of distributed locations and content distribution. PAIRIN can now serve those organizations with our curriculum,” Michael added.

“We built our business around distributing and managing customer-provided training content on mobile platforms, but we kept hearing from our customers that they found it difficult to develop their own soft skills curriculum,” said Bob Paulsen, PlayerLync CEO. “It quickly became clear that with PAIRIN, we could help our customers fill that need. Since we both use the same publishing standards the curriculum integrates seamlessly, and is the best we’ve seen on the market.”

Soft skills proficiency is proven to be more than 75% of the reason employees experience long term job success. Since these skills are coachable and changeable, they’re perfectly suited for online development. Knowing that PlayerLync’s solutions produces a 9.3X return on investment for organizations, the combination of these professional development tools are an obvious and necessary decision for businesses to succeed in a competitive world.
