PolicyPoint signs agreement with Leaderskill Group
Tuesday, 07 March 2006
PolicyPoint, a leading provider of internet based systems that ensure understanding of corporate policies and other vital knowledge, has entered into a strategic partnership with Leaderskill Group Pty Ltd – an Australian pioneer in the application of Accelerated Learning techniques for leaders and managers. The relationship is already providing a return on investment – in less than two weeks Leaderskill has already confirmed its first PolicyPoint client.
Currently PolicyPoint is used by large, distributed enterprises to deliver, test and monitor employee understanding of important information, such as policies. The partnership will see Leaderskill marketing PolicyPoint’s system to existing and new clients in SMEs through to large enterprises. Under the agreement, Leaderskill will hold the PolicyPoint licence, providing small business customers with a cost effective way to access PolicyPoint functionality and Leaderskill’s specialised content, as well as offering PolicyPoint directly to larger organisations.
“The agreement between PolicyPoint and Leaderskill Group will allow for PolicyPoint’s solutions to be promoted to a new customer area – the small business market,” said Andrew Stein, Managing Director, PolicyPoint. “Through Leaderskill, we plan to offer affordable systems to address the growing need from the SME market which also has critical knowledge that its people must know.”
Dr Ronald Forbes, Director of Leaderskill Group said, “We have not seen an e-learning system as powerful, flexible and easy-to-use as PolicyPoint. It provides a simple way of developing learning materials of any kind, with linked methods of assessment that ensure transfer of learning.
“It is fully automated with scores, reminders, reports – everything that is required to run a professional e-learning program. PolicyPoint’s solutions provide a fast approach to ensuring compliance, training outcomes and product knowledge,” Forbes said.
PolicyPoint enables organisations to minimise risk by scheduling and testing employee knowledge, and notifying management of any exceptions. It also frees managers to focus on core business by automating the whole process. For the user, PolicyPoint links with existing Information Management, HR and email systems to alert them of information they must know, directs them to the learning resources, reminds them when testing is due, conducts formal testing on-line, updates their histories and resets their testing schedules. It even provides online checklists for critical procedures.
Leaderskill Group has a strong history in survey design and the creation of innovative learning materials, spanning three decades. Leaderskill Group consultants have extensive experience in helping clients to identify their most important outcomes and in building the programs to best achieve them. They have a high level of technical expertise, administering and supporting large-scale e-learning and assessment programs in Australia and worldwide.
