Rockland Trust Company to Use Plateau Systems Bank-wide
ARLINGTON, VA – March 14, 2002 – Plateau Systems, a provider of software that
manages learning and knowledge processes for organizations, announced today
that Rockland Trust Company has selected the Plateau Learning Management System
(LMS) to manage training and career development for employees at more than 50
branch offices, nine Commercial Lending centers, three Mortgage Banking centers
and three Investment Management Group offices throughout Southeastern Massachusetts.
Rockland Trust, one of Plateau’s first customers in 1996, continues to see value
from Plateau’s e-Learning solutions and has scaled its learning initiative to
include proactive career development programs.
Rockland Trust Company will use Plateau LMS to schedule, deliver and manage
continuous learning objectives for employees. A critical component of Rockland
Trust’s employee training is career planning. The company needed an application
that would assess the bank’s entire population and assist in tracking performance
training needs and history. Rockland Trust will use Plateau LMS planning tools,
which include skill gap and candidate analysis and secure competency assessment
data, to help employees develop appropriate career plans and to enable administrators
to identify the most qualified employees for job openings.
Another key element of the upgrade is the ability to schedule employees across
the organization through e-mail notification. Plateau LMS automatically notifies
employees when they need training, detects and resolves schedule conflicts and
adjusts resources as necessary to increase attendance and maximize employee
"Education is very important to Rockland Trust and ensuring that our employees
continue to develop in their careers is essential to our organization’s success,"
said Jack Dugan, assistant vice president, manager, Human Resource Development
of Rockland Trust Company. "We established a strategic relationship with
Plateau six years ago to build an educational database that was efficient, easy
to use and could grow with the company. Plateau continues to be the only LMS
that meets these needs."
Plateau manages learning and knowledge processes for organizations, improving
their business operations by integrating and delivering the knowledge employees,
customers and partners require to excel. Plateau 4 Learning Management System
(LMS) is built on open, J2EE/EJB architecture. Plateau’s global clients include
Motorola University, Federal Express, Bristol Myers-Squibb and the U.S. Air
Force. The company was founded in 1996, and is headquartered in Arlington, Virginia.
