GeoLearning, Inc., the leading provider of ASP-hosted human capital management and development (HCMD) solutions, announced a new alliance to co-market Exxceed’s CompetencySuite™ human capital management solutions as an integrated component of its GeoMaestro™ and GeoExpress™ learning management systems. The partnership has already paid dividends with several customer contracts, including a 3-year $2.56 million contract with the New Jersey Department of Law & Public Safety to deliver first responder training to 145,000 police, fire and emergency personnel on behalf of New Jersey’s Domestic Security Preparedness Task Force.

Exxceed can easily customize this dictionary for each client. Also included is a robust set of ASP software tools that allow each client organization to gain insight into individual competencies and skill gaps without the hassle of installing software on each user’s desktop.
