to Provide Clients Online Technology Training EDISON, N.J. and ATLANTA, July 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Intelligroup Inc. and Kaplan IT Learning have announced a strategic alliance to offer e-learning solutions to the enterprise software market. Intelligroup is a global provider of IT outsourcing services, and Kaplan IT Learning's STT Trainer software generates enterprise application training simulations and documentation. Kaplan IT Learning is a part of global education leader Kaplan, Inc. Intelligroup's Empower Solutions division will incorporate Kaplan IT Learning's award-winning STT Trainer software into their implementation service offering. Together, the companies will develop e-learning solutions for the public sector, k-12 school districts, telecommunications, and utilities markets. Intelligroup/Empower Solutions' ERP clients -- including private and public sector end-users of SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and Microsoft, software -- will be able to generate high quality training and support content, such as simulation training and assessments, and printed documentation, quickly and cost-effectively; both critical requirements during software implementation projects when hundreds to thousands of end-users need to be trained and assessed before system rollout. "We see an increasing requirement for a self-paced learning solution among our clients due to recurring training needs for new hires and refresher training for infrequent system users," said Rene Grajales, Marketing and Business Development Manager for Empower Solutions. "Although we expect blended learning to remain as the preferred method of training, self-paced learning is growing in importance as the effort required to develop and deliver training via traditional methods can be costly." "We are proud to have STT Trainer become the core of Empower Solutions' newly established e-learning center of excellence," comments Julian Diaz, Global Marketing Manager for STT Trainer at Kaplan IT Learning. "Our alliance with Intelligroup, and in particular Empower Solutions, is key to our expansion into the US public sector market."
