CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2014) - ViewCentral, a Rainmaker Systems company (OTCQX: RMKR) and leading provider of learning management solutions, today announced that AppDynamics has selected the ViewCentral Learning Management System (LMS) to help manage its training services. The ViewCentral platform was selected by AppDynamics for its capacity to handle complex transactions, dependability of the platform, and the ability to scale and grow with the company's needs. 

"AppDynamics University, is designed to enable customers, channel partners, and employees to be successful with our products and company as a whole," said Christine Souza, senior director of education, AppDynamics. "Due to our rapid company growth, we outgrew our previous LMS capabilities. We really needed a solution that could grow and adapt with us. After looking at various solutions, ViewCentral was the clear choice. View Central allows us to provide a variety of delivery methods for our content reliably as well as provide a transcript for students to manage and review their learning. We elected to purchase the Sales Force connector that is also providing great transcript visibility for Sales and AppDynamics as a whole."

AppDynamics delivers a next-generation application performance management solution that simplifies the management of complex, business-critical apps. With the ViewCentral LMS platform, AppDynamics will be able to accelerate their time to generate revenue from training programs for customers, channel partners, and employees by streamlining their delivery. In addition, ViewCentral's ability to support the purchase of training credits will enable AppDynamics to integrate training into initial purchase orders, giving customers flexibility into how and when they purchase their training services. Furthermore, AppDynamics anticipates that ViewCentral LMS' rich feature set out of the box will help the company get up-and-running more quickly, ensuring their complete ecosystem can begin benefitting from it soon after deployment.

ViewCentral LMS is a platform uniquely designed to monetize and facilitate the delivery of training and certification programs, allowing organizations to capture both incremental and recurring revenue from subscription-based offerings. Managing the process from start to finish, ViewCentral LMS enables organizations to effectively promote available training programs, register participants, handle complex pricing and payments, deliver trainings and fulfill certification requirements, all from a single platform. "Organizations realize that relying on manual processes internally to deliver their training programs to their customers and partners limits their ability to increase training revenue over time," said Terry Lydon, vice president and general manager of Learning Management Services at Rainmaker. "Since ViewCentral automates those manual delivery systems, it frees up training resources to create and deliver great training content to their customers and partners. AppDynamics can immediately maximize their training revenue streams as well as be positioned for long term revenue growth on the ViewCentral LMS platform."
