Radiant And PlaceWare Partnership - 03/2000

Offering On-Line Training Across Europe

Radiant Knowledge Systems, Europe's leading provider of innovative knowledge transfer solutions and PlaceWare Europe, the leader in Web conferencing software and services for business, has announced a partnership that will enable them to provide the latest and most innovative online learning solutions to customers across Europe.

The new alliance will integrate the unique skills of both companies, combining Radiant's range of customised education and training services with PlaceWare's expertise in online communications and Web conferencing.

Together, Radiant and PlaceWare will revitalise how and where companies educate their employees or customers by using cutting-edge on-line technologies to open up the traditional classroom setting, said David Woodhead, VP of Marketing and E-knowledge at Radiant Knowledge Systems. With its strong track record in managing online communications, PlaceWare will be an invaluable partner in delivering our integrated learning solutions across Europe, and around the world.

The agrement forms the basis of a two-year relationship between the two companies, where PlaceWare's Web technology will provide the infrastructure for Radiant's online learning programmes. This facilitates both synchronous interactive distance learning and asynchronous self-paced learning on the Web as well as other forms of knowledge transfer such as rapid product/technology updates and market briefings.
