Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Training specialist Parity will offer more than 1,000 courses over the Internet on a pay-as-you-go basis. Users can choose the course they want and pay for it by credit card. From next Monday courses will be available in technical IT, desktop IT, business, management and leadership, finance, health and safety and sales.

Corporate clients will be able to create their own branded services with full tracking and reporting tools. These could be purely online training or a mixture of e-learning and conventional instructor courses.

HBOS is one of first Parity customers to sign up and welcomed the move away from license fees.

Jayne Edwards, training manager at HBOS, said: "We want to give our staff access to targeted, timely and good-value learning resources, which our previous licence-based system wasn’t able to deliver. It’s vital that we can track each learning session per user to assess the effectiveness of the training and charge the costs back to the specific business unit.”

Parity hopes to offer industry-specific courses in future for manufacturing, engineering, maintenance, retail, transport, pharmaceuticals and processing operations.

The technology for the system is based on Kognita Site4Learning content management. ®
