InfoBasis launch training needs analysis solution

Infobasis has reported substantial pre-orders for their new Training Needs Analysis (TNA) software solution called Readiness Manager.

The skills management technology provider will launch the product at this week's Learning Technologies Exhibition in London.

"We have never known such levels of interest before a product launch," said InfoBasis CEO Ashley Wheaton. "It's clear that Readiness Manager satisfies a very real need among larger employers - to fully understand their skills base and training requirements."

Although initially targeted at the IT skills market, Wheaton predicts sales extending into other areas. "Readiness Manager includes the capacity to build skills frameworks around any subject matter."

An internet-hosted service, Readiness Manager comes pre-loaded with skills frameworks such as SFIA (the Skills Framework for the Information Age) and Microsoft Technologies Skills Framework. Infobasis say standard reports from the system include Personal Development Plans (PDPs) and detailed Training Needs Analysis (TNA) by department and team.

Bill Walker, Commercial Director at Xpertise, an InfoBasis channel partner, said: "Over the past months, whenever we have demonstrated the pre-launch beta version, we have generated considerable interest. For every 10 demonstrations we have made, we have generated about 8 orders."
