New TNA tool launches at Learning Technologies 2005

Skills management technologies provider InfoBasis Limited has announced that it will launch a new tool for IT training companies at the Learning Technologies 2005 Exhibition. The product, InfoBasis Readiness Manager, is designed to help training companies provide clients with a range of Training Needs Analysis services.

"Through Readiness Manager, our training company partners will be able to provide clients with detailed skills gap analysis and targeted training plans," explained InfoBasis CEO Ashley Wheaton. "Furthermore, these plans will be prioritised on cost, time, job role needs and project importance."

"This will let client organisations make best use of their training budgets," added Wheaton. "Now, for the first time, training companies have a tool which will enable them to run skills audits based on industry standard processes and frameworks - all at a fraction of the cost and time of current training needs analysis methods."

Already piloted in both the UK and USA, Readiness Manager is based on the same platform as InfoBasis ESI, the skills management technology used by the British Computer Society, British Army and Norwich Union.

"Readiness Manager fits very well with Parity's provision of Human Capital Management services," said Barbara Greenway, Managing Director of Parity. "Increasingly we are working with corporate clients to manage their human capital, and Readiness Manager will help us do that. It represents a straight-forward way for organisations to begin down the path of HCM, and to begin meeting the statutory and regulatory reporting requirements which they face in 2005."

Steve Brugger, President of SQL Soft, a Microsoft Gold Partner training provider with several locations in the north-west USA said, "Skills management has become a high priority with our technology driven customers. They are beginning to see it as a mechanism to control costs and manage risks, while at the same time deploying technologies that help them attain their strategic business objectives."
