Securitas USA Deploys Plateau as Foundation for Enterprise-Wide Learning Initiative

America's Largest Security Services Company Deploys Plateau Learning and iContent to Support 100,000 North American Employees

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2010) -  Plateau Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class SaaS solutions for talent management, announced today that Securitas Security Services USA, Inc., (Securitas USA) the North American operations of the leading global security company Securitas Group, has deployed Plateau Learning and iContent to support their enterprise-wide learning initiatives. Securitas USA has rolled out Plateau's solution to 100,000 employees in the United States, Securitas Canada and Puerto Rico. In early 2011, Securitas Group is planning to expand their deployment to include employees in a number of countries in Europe.

Securitas Group was founded in 1934 and later became known as Securitas AB. In1999, it acquired United States-based Pinkerton's Inc., the first of several U.S. acquisitions, making Securitas AB a global market leader. Today, Securitas AB and related companies have operations in more than 40 countries, and more than 260,000 employees. Securitas USA is the most locally-focused security company in the United States, with more than 450 local branch managers and more than 100,000 security officers who provide unmatched security solutions to meet the specific needs of thousands of businesses.

Securitas USA is committed to providing 100% client satisfaction. The majority of Securitas USA employees work onsite at customer locations performing services such as guarding, patrols and inspections, access control, and concierge services. With this distributed and mobile workforce, the learning initiative was critical to enable Securitas USA to provide consistent and reliable service. Securitas USA devotes extensive time to training, developing and retaining employees. 

"We required a Learning Management System that enabled us to reach all of our employees through our learning initiatives and track their progress," explained Bill Barthelemy, COO, Securitas USA. "We evaluated all of the solutions on the market, and were impressed by Plateau's functionality, and our ability to easily configure the system to handle our complex requirements and, at the same time, make it simple enough for our vast guard force to use."

Deploying Plateau Learning and iContent, Plateau's award winning Content-as-a-Service solution, enables Securitas USA to achieve its goal of 100% client satisfaction. The solution provides a personalized experience for each employee with unique learning home pages that include all their learning tasks and history. The solution also provides a single repository for all learning activities including eLearning, instructor-led training, video training, and self-study books. This single repository, combined with Plateau's powerful reporting features, provides Securitas USA with enhanced management and analysis capabilities necessary to optimize their learning initiatives. 

"Securitas USA faced a problem many companies face in rolling out consistent training to geographically dispersed employees," said Paul Sparta, Chairman and CEO of Plateau Systems. "With Plateau, Securitas USA can drive a more strategic and cohesive enterprise learning strategy, delivering training to any of their associates, anywhere throughout the organization and measure training effectiveness and completion using our built-in reporting and analytics. We're pleased they've selected us for these strategic initiatives."
