GeoLearning Expands Headquarters; Adds Technology Center to Accommodate Growth

May 24, 2004

GeoLearning, Inc., the leading provider of ASP-hosted human capital management and development (HCMD) solutions, announced today that it has expanded its headquarters in West Des Moines, IA with the opening of the new GeoLearning Technology Center. The new officespace will house up to 50 new employees in technical services, IT, quality assurance and systems integration.

“The growth of our revenues over the past 18 months, combined with the volume of business in our pipeline for the foreseeable future, necessitate a significant expansion in staff and office space,” said Frank Russell, president and CEO of GeoLearning. “We’ve continued on our rapid growth path by aggressively winning new customers and delivering our products and services efficiently and effectively.”

The company has also bucked the off-shoring trend in IT. “For a variety of reasons we’re committed to keeping jobs in the United States rather than off-shoring to foreign countries,” added Russell. “At a time when many of our competitors have cut jobs at home and moved them overseas, GeoLearning has perfected an efficient business model enabling us to grow profitably while adding jobs in the United States. We’re adamant about keeping critical functions that are core to our business, like systems development and customer service, close to home because they are vitally important to our customers’ long-term satisfaction and success.”

The corporate headquarters expansion comes on the heels of GeoLearning opening a new sales and technical services office in Washington, DC to house 14 new employees, as a well as the opening of a new Internet Data Center in Ashburn, VA to meet market demand and the growing needs of its existing corporate and government clients.

More than 350 clients, including leading organizations such as Nike, Dell, National City Mortgage, Costco, and over 35 government agencies—including the U.S. federal government’s e-training site—rely on GeoLearning’s hosted human capital development platform to manage enterprise-wide learning and development.
