NetDimensions is a global provider of learning, knowledge and performance management systems. The company's Enterprise Knowledge Platform (EKP) delivers and manages corporate training, career development, assessment and certification programs, and helps clients around the world address growing regulatory compliance needs.
EKP' supports virtual-classroom technologies and courseware from all major suppliers. And because learners and managers access EKP through a standard Web browser, the system is easy to use and quick to implement. EKP is said to give managers and administrators unprecedented control over the learning process. It is easy to reconfigure EKP to accommodate anything from a minor corporate reorganization to a major acquisition. Global message broadcasting, course catalog management, cost accounting, as well as standard and custom reporting capabilities are also included.
EKP is AICC-compliant, SCORM certified and 100% Java, it runs on servers that use the Windows, Solaris, HP-Unix and Red Hat Linux operating systems and supports the Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise 12.x, Oracle 8i/9i and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 databases. EKP operates securely and reliably in any language or combination of languages that can be represented using the Unicode standard.
One of EKP's key features is the Knowledge Center, a dynamically generated area that puts everything a learner needs — including course-specific data, supporting information, and communications functions — in one convenient location on the desktop. EKP also includes a personal calendar, reminder notes and other tools that increase retention and make learning more efficient.
EKP Gold is NetDimensions' enterprise solution. In addition to EKP Silver's functions, it includes live chat, skills assessment, and certification and, at an extra charge, the Customization Tool Kit, a feature that lets you adapt and extend EKP's functionality. EKP Gold can be integrated with ERP, HR, CRM and other enterprise systems and is available on a hosted or license basis.
EKP Silver includes everything a small or medium-sized organization needs to deliver and manage live, online and blended learning. It includes the features found in EKP Bronze plus the Knowledge Center. EKP Silver comes with an Enrollment Policy Editor to set up and manage complex enrollment procedures. EKP Silver also offers an expanded range of configuration options, custom reports and a powerful test engine.
