KnowledgePlanet Becomes First to Offer One Price, Bundled Training Back Office Solution

KnowledgePlanet Training Back Office offers on-demand technology and ongoing administration and operations management in one solution 

MECHANICSBURG, PA (Jun 14, 2005) – KnowledgePlanet has further integrated its Training Back Office components to become the first learning solutions provider to offer a one-price, bundled service of on-demand technology and ongoing administration and operations management. The consolidated suite advances KnowledgePlanet’s strategy to focus learning technologies on significantly increasing customers’  competitiveness and profitability.

Knowing the pain points of corporate learning programs – inefficiency, hassle, and unpredictable costs — KnowledgePlanet spent months simplifying and integrating services around its recently improved Learning Management System (LMS), KnowledgePlanet 6.5. The result is a more facile Training Back Office. This centralized, automatic operating system is virtually trouble-free to implement and maintain, highly flexible for blending and delivering a variety of learning content and venues, and easily upgradeable . KnowledgePlanet’s Training Back Office builds on the company’s reliable LMS hosting technology – recognized as a leader by major industry analysts — to deliver on-demand training throughout the organization.

The outsourced Training Back Office system enhances usability for learners while generating significant training efficiencies — efficiencies that Bersin & Associates’ research concludes could save organizations up to 85% in training costs over in-house management.

Comments CEO Alan Todd, “Research, customer feedback, and buzz in the marketplace reconfirm that the combination of a time-tested learning management system enhanced with customer-focused administrative functions and support services offers businesses a cost-effective means for linking training to corporate goals. Our Training Back Office solution does just that.”

Client acceptance of KnowledgePlanet’s expanded learning technologies and service offerings is reflected in the company’s increasingly strong financial performance and industry recognition. With thirteen sequential quarters of growth and the addition of 31 blue-chip customers over the past two quarters, KnowledgePlanet is on track for another record year. Industry confirmation of KnowledgePlanet’s success has come from HRO Today Magazine, which named CEO Alan Todd a Superstar in the human resource outsourcing industry, and TrainingOutsourcing.com, which honored KnowledgePlanet in its “Top 20 Companies in the Training Outsourcing Industry.”

For almost 20 years, KnowledgePlanet has innovated time-saving technologies and effective learning management processes. The company’s integrated suite of products and services helps drive greater workforce productivity and organizational performance.
