    London, United Kingdom; September 7, 2016 --  Performance, knowledge and learning management systems provider NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY) has been selected by global engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald as the provider of its cloud Learning Management System (LMS). Mott MacDonald has been using NetDimensions Learning for over 10 years to train staff, as well as external contractors, worldwide. The company also manages new employee onboarding via a dedicated portal using NetDimensions Learning. “By using NetDimensions Learning, we are able to deliver the same training to our employees in different countries, with a local flavor. NetDimensions Learning has very strong multi-language handling features. We currently cater to 16 core languages. A real benefit for us is automation. We are able to deliver training to our staff that is relevant to their role in a timely manner, wherever they are in the world,“ explained Peter Gomm, Group Learning Technologies Manager at Mott MacDonald. While developing innovative, efficient solutions that create value for clients, Mott MacDonald upholds its staff to the highest technical, professional and safety standards. “Mott MacDonald is a consultancy, providing our customers with in-depth knowledge and expertise. Our employees spend time on project sites, and might have to take on a supervisory role. This means that we need to make sure they understand and follow relevant health and safety regulations,” continued Gomm. Mott MacDonald is regularly audited internally and externally for quality and compliance. Internally, compliance is monitored very closely. Each department is responsible for reporting staff compliance levels and putting a plan into action on how to remedy any incident of non-compliance. Managing health and safety is critical for Mott MacDonald because there could be extremely serious consequences in case of non-adherence to regulations. In 2015, Mott MacDonald decided to implement a SaaS solution for its LMS. The company conducted a very detailed RFP process and evaluated several vendors. After a rigorous evaluation, Mott MacDonald chose NetDimensions because of the rich set of product features, which were the best fit for the company’s complex needs. NetDimensions’ competitive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) was also a key factor in the selection process. “Moving to SaaS will significantly reduce our administrative workload required to maintain the system internally. With SaaS, software upgrades are easy and quick as NetDimensions takes care of this process, allowing us to free up our internal resources. We have a strong relationship with NetDimensions and value their understanding of our requirements around compliance. Their flexibility in meeting our needs is critical,“ concluded Gomm. NetDimensions CEO Jay Shaw said, “We are delighted that Mott MacDonald has chosen NetDimensions again for its SaaS solution. We are committed to continually evolve the capabilities of our products to be able to provide to each of our clients a ‘leading edge’ solution, which meets their long-term needs.” About Mott MacDonald Mott MacDonald is a US$2bn engineering, management and development consultancy.

The new solution helps sales leaders, sales effectiveness directors, and corporate learning and development managers to develop and enable salespeople and sales managers with better speed and precision, and at a lower cost than traditional sales force development programs. Technological advancements, changes in workforce demographics, and pressure to demonstrate return on investment are pushing sales leaders and sales development professionals to consider new and better methods for developing sales teams.

The solution incorporates four integrated modules — competency library and talent assessments, a complete sales training curriculum and adaptive learning system, sales process playbooks, and sales talent analytics.

SPI-1 can be implemented in weeks rather than months, and costs a fraction of the individual pieces. The solution is fully mobile-enabled, and can be integrated in popular CRM systems or run as a stand-alone application. “Launching SPI-1 represents the culmination of nearly 30 years of experience, learning what makes salespeople and organizations successful.” said Keith Eades, Founder and CEO of Sales Performance International. “We are proud to offer our clients a powerful solution to significantly improve sales performance and create more value from their sales teams.” Additional Information SPI-1 is available today.

    Washington, DC - September 9, 2016 - The Iron Yard, the largest immersive code school in the U.S., today launched the Tech Opportunity Fund in collaboration with withCode Fellows and Operation HOPE. By unifying the efforts of code schools, government, civic organizations and employers, the goal of the Tech Opportunity Fund is to increase diversity in the tech industry by removing financial barriers and increasing access to tech education for all. In addition to technical skills training, the initiative will include core financial literacy education and entrepreneurship training through programming partner Operation HOPE. The Tech Opportunity Fund was mentioned this morning in a speech by Vice President Joe Biden in St. Louis. “To maximize the potential of the tech industry, we must maximize the potential of a diverse tech workforce,” said Peter Barth, CEO of The Iron Yard. “The Tech Opportunity Fund builds off of the momentum generated by innovative initiatives like TechHire to ensure Americans of all backgrounds have access to tech training programs that can open the door to a career in tech. There is a true need in the industry for an organization to unite the many groups that are working toward this goal and by coordinating our efforts, we can truly change the industry for the better.” Over the next five years, the Tech Opportunity Fund aims to award $100 million in diversity scholarships to in-need students from groups that are currently underrepresented in the tech workforce including women and minorities. The Iron Yard has committed $40 million in full-tuition scholarships to the school’s immersive programs over the next five years, Code Fellows has committed $5 million in full-tuition scholarships, and Operation HOPE will serve as the Fund’s financial literacy and entrepreneur training partner. To reach the goal of awarding $100 million in scholarships, the Tech Opportunity Fund is calling on employers, code schools and civic organizations across the country to join the Fund by providing funding for scholarships and contributing resources that will support for scholarship recipients. “The creation of the Tech Opportunity Fund is unprecedented,” said Rodney Sampson, apartner of the Tech Opportunity Fund and partner at TechSquare Labs. “By far, it is the largest tangible strategic financial commitment to diversify the technical talent and workforce that will drive our nation toward an inclusive innovation economy for all. I look forward to working with all of the stakeholders to ensure that these scholarships are distributed with integrity and authenticity.” In addition to providing full-tuition scholarships to code school programs, the Tech Opportunity Fund will work to remove other barriers that can prevent people from pursuing a code school education. Partnerships with city-level government bodies and civic organizations will assist scholarship recipients by addressing needs such as affordable housing, financial literacy, counseling and transportation as needed. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution that will increase access to tech education and improve diversity in the workforce,” said Barth. “The Tech Opportunity Fund approaches these issues holistically and coordinates local and national resources to provide students with both academic opportunity and the support system they need to be successful.” “Access to opportunity is the hallmark of an inclusive global economy, and access to digital opportunity and jobs in the digital space is the door to the future,” said John Hope Bryant, Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman and CEO. “This extraordinary collaborative will help develop life skills in deserving students, many, in underserved communities throughout the nation—creating a generation of tech leaders and job creators to power us forward.” Applications for Tech Opportunity Fund scholarships will open by January 2017. To receive a scholarship, applicants will need to first be accepted into a participating code school through that program’s standard admissions process. After their acceptance, students will apply for a Tech Opportunity Fund scholarship through the website,www.techopportunityfund.org. Scholarships will be awarded to qualified students on a first come, first served basis. “Over the last 12 months, we’ve provided over $600,000 in scholarships, from direct funds and from great partners like Expedia and Zillow Group. These funds have given over a hundred students the chance to learn relevant, highly desirable skills, and continue on to join great companies in the local tech markets,” said Dave Parker, Code Fellows CEO. “The Tech Opportunity Fund program helps us expand that impact.” Scholarships will be available on all of The Iron Yard and Code Fellows’ campuses: Atlanta, GA Durham, NC Orlando, FL Austin, TX Greenville, SC Portland, OR Charleston, SC Houston, TX Raleigh, NC Charlotte, NC Indianapolis, IN Salt Lake City, UT Cincinnati, OH Las Vegas, NV San Antonio, TX Columbia, SC Minneapolis, MN Seattle, WA Dallas, TX Nashville, TN Tampa, FL Detroit, MI New York, NY Washington, DC For more information and to learn more about how your organization or code school can be involved, visit: www.techopportunityfund.org.

But with FDA deadlines fast approaching, many simply do not have the dedicated time or travel budget to spend three days away from their facilities for on-site training. “Alchemy already offers high quality on-site PCQI training across the country, but the slots fill up well in advance,” said Jeff Eastman, Alchemy CEO. “Our customers asked us to develop an equally compelling e-learning course so that everyone can get trained in time.” Available immediately, the Preventive Controls for Human Food course follows the curriculum developed for the FDA by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) and is taught by FSPCA-designated Lead Instructors Jeff Chilton and Jorge Acosta. They have a combined 50 years of hands-on practical experience managing food safety and quality assurance plans working in the food processing industry. The course consists of two parts: self-paced e-learning that enables professionals to learn the core materials at their convenience, and a live, virtual classroom session to apply the learning in a peer setting. “The extensive experience of the Alchemy instructors throughout the industry really helped provide examples of how I would be able to implement the new FSMA requirements in my facility,” commented Laura Dietrich, director of quality, Preferred Meals. “Alchemy is the world’s largest food safety training company, and we recognize the need to support supervisors and managers in their development and certification efforts,” said Raj Shah, chief marketing officer at Alchemy Systems. “Preventive Controls for Human Foods is the first of many additional courses and resources that will be available in the coming months at the Alchemy Academy.” Register or learn more about the Preventive Controls for Human Food courses. About Preventive Controls for Human FoodsNew regulations for food processors under the Food Safety Modernization Act require that key personnel at FDA-regulated facilities that are in charge of managing the food safety plan have completed training to qualify as PCQIs. The FDA commissioned the FSPCA to develop the course curriculum. Food processors have a specific amount of time to comply depending on their size: the first compliance deadline, Sept. 19, 2016, is for companies with more than 500 employees. About AlchemyAlchemy is the global leader in innovative solutions that help food companies engage with their workforces to drive safety and productivity. Over two million food workers at 20,000 locations use Alchemy’s tailored training, coaching, and communications programs to reduce workplace injuries, safeguard food, and increase yield.

    Hong Kong - September 14, 2016 - NetDimensions has released a new edition of its native mobile app for tablets and smartphones, NetDimensions Talent Slate 2. “We are excited to launch NetDimensions Talent Slate 2, which was developed using a new cross platform toolset to ensure feature consistency across all major mobile platforms,” said Adrian Weaver, Director of Global Product Management at NetDimensions. “It is available now for iOS and Android devices, with the WIndows 10 version available from November.” Scott Tompkins, Mobile Development Manager at NetDimensions added: “Alongside an offline course player, which supports all features of HTML5 content generated by the major authoring tools, NetDimensions Talent Slate 2 also provides offline support for exams, reference resources and supervisor assessments.” This range of capabilities enables employees to continue learning and training anywhere at anytime, even when no internet connection is available. “For example, a U.S.-based flight crew can download courses and reference materials onto a tablet and access them during their mandatory rest period while offline in another country,” explained Tompkins. NetDimensions Talent Slate 2 also enables mobile learning and on-the-job performance support for multiple users on a single mobile device. Although the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend continues to grow, where learners can use the app on their personal mobile devices, this feature allows multiple learners on company-issued, shared tablet devices.

    Heidelberg, Germany - September 19, 2016 – Training hundreds of customers around the world can put the brakes on an otherwise rapid rollout of a new software service. SITA found the solution to this challenge by adopting a new approach to knowledge transfer and creating e-learning objects with tt knowledge force. By the end of the project SITA calculated that it will have cut the time-to-market by more than a year, enabling customers to take advantage of the new software sooner and realizing significant cost savings for customers and SITA. Moreover, customer staff reported high levels of satisfaction and acceptance, and the long-term burden of user support was significantly reduced. When you fly with virtually any airline around the world, it is SITA’s information and communications technology that makes your trip possible. One of the most important SITA applications used by over 100 customers (airlines and ground handlers) worldwide is load planning. Load planning ensures that the weight distribution within an aircraft is optimal for safe take-off and landing plus it has a significant impact on fuel efficiency. When SITA decided to replace its legacy load planning system, it soon identified that training delivery lead-times were going to be the limiting factor in project implementation. It needed a strategy to transition customers to the new Horizon Weight&Balance application in a timely and effective manner, using a model that could also be used as other new applications are released in future. For many years, SITA had used classroom training on a train-the-trainer basis, one customer at a time. SITA sought a new approach to create the vast amounts of training materials required to support the Horizon development and release plan. The company proposed a “flipped classroom” model in which students conduct most of their learning outside the classroom, using e-learning modules, at their own pace, before attending a classroom session focused on real-life scenarios. The classroom session is then followed by an additional knowledge check and finally students obtain their completion certificate. Classroom times are reduced for students and the level of knowledge retention has proved to be far higher. SITA selected tt knowledge force because it best suited the company’s demanding criteria, such as easy content creation and editing, integration with the company’s learning management system (LMS) via the SCORM standard, easy re-recording of screens and adaptability to multiple roles and multiple languages. SITA analyzed Horizon Weight&Balance and broke it down into 133 learning objects, which were arranged into nine training modules and mapped onto three roles. Using tt knowledge force, SITA built all 133 learning objects over the course of three months with a simple workflow, together with training manuals and SCORM e-learning packs, which were loaded into the SITA University LMS. “Creating learning modules in tt knowledge force was fast and flexible: It enabled us to train employees at multiple customer organizations in parallel, rather than sequentially using the old train-the-trainer method,” according to Peg Wyse, Project Manager & Training Administrator, SITA. “As a result our new Horizon load planning application was up and running very quickly. Moreover, the solution is transferrable to all Horizon applications that we release in future.” tts Managing Director Hermann Ude commented, “Internationally active organizations like SITA are rethinking their approach to training and knowledge transfer to reduce costs and accelerate speed to market as they introduce new processes and technologies. It often makes far more sense to take the training to the user, rather than the user to the trainer, and follow this with performance support at the workplace. We are delighted that SITA has achieved such a high return on its investment in blended learning with the help of tts.” tt knowledge force and innovative training delivery methods reduced implementation time for the new load planning application from more than three to less than two years, enabling customers to benefit from the new product sooner and increasing return on investment. About SITA With more than 4,600 permanent employees, SITA is the world leader in air transport communications and information technology. 95% of all international destinations are covered by the SITA network. Around the world, nearly every passenger flight relies on SITA technology and almost every airport and airline does business with SITA.
