TTS to work with SkillSet to add new service capability to UK L&D market
SkillSet Ltd today announced that it has signed a full partnership agreement with TTS (Heidelberg, Germany), a leading and independent provider of end-to-end software solutions for the creation and delivery of documentation and eLearning.
The partnership will see SkillSet market TTS’ content creation and publication product, TT Knowledge Force, and application support solution, TT Guide, in the UK. SkillSet will also provide a full range of professional services, including instructional design, content creation and training delivery, to UK-based customers.
TTS, a global organisation specialising in the employee qualification arena, delivers its proven TT Knowledge Force solution to over three million users in more than 20 countries worldwide. Its new in-application support solution, TT Guide, provides on-demand, context-sensitive help which is embedded in live systems, helping organisations to reduce the volume of application-related support calls and improve end-user adoption.
Following a wave of consolidation across the learning technologies market, TTS is one of the few remaining independently-owned providers of eLearning solutions. Its TT Knowledge Force solution was named as one of the world’s top three authoring tools in a market survey conducted by BCS earlier this year. The recently-formed partnership will enable SkillSet to use TTS’ solutions to develop content to supports its clients. The partnership will also allow TTS to extend its service offerings and add value to organisations across the UK.
Wai-Bin Lai, country director UK at TTS, commented: “SkillSet has a fantastic track record in delivering high-quality, blended training programmes to organisations across the globe. Not only will this partnership allow SkillSet to expand the range of products and services that it offers to its clients, it will help TTS to add real value to its UK-based clients through the delivery of high-quality professional services. We look forward to combining our experience in providing innovative learning solutions with SkillSet’s ability to deliver complex training and change management programmes.”
Paul Deed, director of SkillSet, added: “TT Knowledge Force is a proven product, and one that has the potential to offer significant value to SkillSet’s customers. We’ve got over twenty years of experience in rolling-out training programmes to clients large and small. We are particularly strong in the development and delivery of training programmes to support large and complex IT system deployments. TTS’ solutions will add real value here and will enable us to provide new services to our client-base, including the delivery of learning to mobile and iPad devices. The partnership with TTS will allow us to deliver real productivity benefits to our customers and enable us to deliver exciting learning programmes to UK-based organisations. We look forward to combining our experience in providing innovative learning solutions with SkillSet’s ability to deliver complex training and change management programmes.”
