Plateau Expands iContent Offering to Deliver Industry-Leading Content Authoring Capabilities

Expanded Partnership With Trivantis' Lectora Online Offers iContent Users a Robust, Easy-to-Use Content Authoring Tool

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  Plateau Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class SaaS solutions for talent management, today announced that it has expanded its iContent solution to include best-in-class content authoring and publishing capabilities. Under the terms of a renewed agreement with Trivantis Corporation, the leader in e-learning software for authoring and content creation, Plateau will bundle Trivantis' integrated content authoring tool, Lectora Online, with Plateau's award-winning iContent Content-as-a-Service (CaaS) offering to provide customers with an easy way to create and publish content directly to iContent.

Trivantis' Lectora Online is a Web-based solution that enables individuals or teams of users to create, manage and store online learning content. It includes the popular creation and publishing tools from Lectora Publisher, and allows users to work concurrently on a single title, without having to maintain multiple versions of it. This reseller partnership gives organizations the ability to purchase Plateau's iContent solution and Lectora Online from one source, simplifying the creation, management and delivery of SCORM- and AICC-compliant e-learning content.

"Content-as-a-Service has solved many of the typical challenges organizations face with online content management," explained Lee Wright, Senior Director of Services, iContent at Plateau Systems. "By joining forces with Trivantis, we are able to further extend iContent's already robust capabilities and give our customers one of the industry's top content authoring tools now integrated with iContent."

iContent forever changed e-learning by delivering the industry's first solution for managing and hosting critical learning and talent content, including knowledge assets that facilitate formal and informal e-learning. Organizations deploying this unique CaaS solution are significantly decreasing content overhead and infrastructure costs and reducing maintenance and delivery issues. By offloading these burdens to iContent, customers can focus their time, resources and attention on creating effective training content rather than on managing it.

"The addition of online course authoring, provided by Lectora Online, to the iContent solution creates a powerful combination that gives organizations the ability to not only reuse existing content, but to create, edit and publish new content on the fly, all from their browser," said John Blackmon, Vice President of Authoring Systems at Trivantis.
