Intelligroup and Kaplan IT Learning Announce Strategic Alliance

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."
