QUMAS and NetDimensions Announce Integrated, End-to-End Learning and Compliance 
Management Solution 
Award Winning NetDimensions Learning System Accessible Through
HONG KONG, CHINA and CORK, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 --  
QUMAS, an Accelrys, Inc. company, and NetDimensions (AIM: NETD)
(OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge, and
learning management systems, today announced the availability of an
innovative solution that brings the best-in-class learning management
capabilities of NetDimensions Learning to the QUMAS Compliance
Platform. Available now, this new integrated solution enables
organizations to control all of their compliance management and all
of their training requirements using a single platform. Users access
the capabilities of the NetDimensions award winning Learning
Management System seamlessly through MyQUMAS, a unified interface
that provides access to all QUMAS compliance management capabilities
in one view. 
The combined NetDimensions-QUMAS solution provides a highly scalable
and configurable environment for launching, tracking, and managing
interactive corporate compliance training. In this solution,
employees can access corporate policies, company training modules or
any SCORM-compliant content by simply logging on, registering for
courses, and launching the modules. In addition, supervisors and
managers can track operational compliance, view dashboards, and
export reports detailing user progress, grades, course enrollments,
course completions, and time spent taking courses. 
The NetDimensions-QUMAS solution also dramatically reduces the time
needed to create and deliver critical training. Within NetDimensions
Learning, QUMAS compliance content and documents can be viewed and
converted easily into effective and measurable training. Similarly
and just as easily, popular third-party courseware can be imported,
launched, and tracked. 
The NetDimensions-QUMAS solution will be on display at the QUMAS
Partner Pavilion in booth #2145 at the DIA 2014 50th Annual Meeting
taking place in San Diego, CA, on June 16-19, 2014. 
"Organizations can now proactively manage their training programs
with this combined solution," stated Kevin O'Leary, CEO for QUMAS.
"By taking a proactive approach, organizations minimize the risk and
consequences of noncompliance before violations occur." 
"Being able to demonstrate that your employees have been properly
trained is vital from a compliance perspective," said Jay Shaw, CEO
and Managing Director for NetDimensions. "Growing organizations find
problems keeping track of training records using paper-based methods
with spreadsheets or Word documents. By automating the training
process with the integrated NetDimensions-QUMAS solution,
organizations gain accurate and up-to-date training data that can be
presented in over 120 comprehensive reports, providing a verifiable
and thorough picture of what training has taken place within the
