Earlier today, we announced that Elearning! Magazine has recognized SkillSoft with two distinguished awards based on reader votes. SkillSoft won Best IT Content Provider for its expansive Books24x7 ITPro™ digital books service, and Best Compliance Program for SkillSoft Compliance Training Academy. We also received awards of excellence in 5 other categories.
We are delighted to receive these awards, which are based on the magazine’s readers nominating products and solutions via online balloting. It’s rewarding because we work hard to be flexible and meet customers’ exact needs through a set of offerings with unique depth and breadth. This is essential to our leadership strategy and this award validates this focus.
Since its introduction in 1999, ITPro has provided millions of technical professionals around the globe with anytime, anywhere access to a broad and deep information repository. ITPro offers the complete, unabridged contents of thousands of books, documents and other reference materials that span the spectrum of technology topics, including major IT Certifications, Databases, ERP systems and enterprise computing, operating systems, programming languages, security, web development, and much more. By offering these trusted resources in a searchable online environment, users get instant access to information that answers all of their technical inquiries – saving effort and speeding the time to technical skills acquisition.
SkillSoft Compliance Training Academy
Flexibility, robust functionality, and ease of use are just a few of the attributes SkillSoft Academy customers have experienced while managing their compliance training programs.
For over ten years, Academy has helped organizations ensure compliance by allowing consistent and specific training requirements to be set and tracked to completion for different customer defined learner groups. Automated retraining functionality alerts learners, supervisors and training administrators on training status via an email notification system, allowing immediate review of training status for planning and compliance purposes through flexible and robust reporting.
The SkillSoft Academy helps customers plan, schedule, and manage their company's training to ensure compliance to regulatory and corporate requirements. Our solution includes a collection of over 200 e-learning compliance courses on environmental safety and health, and legal compliance that can be combined with records of other types of training such as classroom, video or on-the-job training, allowing all training records to be managed in one place. SkillSoft Academy is easy to use, but extensive enough to manage training for a large, globally distributed work force.
Thanks to our loyal users, and the readers of Elearning! Magazine for nominating all of our offerings, and ultimately voting for us as the winner in two important categories!
