Softscape Delivers the Industry’s First Fully Integrated End to End E-Learning Management Solution for Human Capital Development

September 19, 2001

Softscape Incorporated announced its expansion into the field of global learning empowerment with its Enterprise Learning Management Solution for Human Capital Development. With Softscape’s web-based e-Learning system, global organizations deliver, track, and manage learning, skills and competencies as well as performance-driven goals and objectives that support employee development and regulatory compliance.

Softscape is the only company that has a proven integrated system available today translated in over 14 different languages and offered with optional integration with SAP, PeopleSoft, Lawson, Oracle, Great Plains and Sage Software.

Harnessing the Power – A Three-fold Client Advantage

According to Dave Watkins, VP and co-founder of Softscape: “By harnessing the power of our Human Capital Development and Management solution, Softscape clients receive a three-fold advantage: online learning programs, performance and multi-rater review integration, and evaluation based on individual goals aligned with corporate strategic vision.” He also said: “We are the first company in the e-learning industry capable of rolling out a fully-operational learning management system that is supported by a host of powerful, integrated, complementary modules already being used successfully by our clients on a global scale. These modules are integrated through a unique technology that combines information in an integrated fashion to create a dynamic learning system that bolsters human capital development.”

Specific Features of Softscape’s E-Learning

E-Learning Management features make it possible to automate comprehensive learning programs; track progress of each participant; evaluate individual performance by measuring progress; facilitate class management; record grades and issue reports. The Learning Management module maintains a transcript of files for all courses taken by employees — from accredited professional development training programs to courses taken within the corporate or academic environment.

A Broad-based Human Capital Development Resource

Extending the suite of Softscape’s AchievementPlus™ with the e-Learning Management module puts Softscape in a unique position. Dave Watkins noted: “Our solution was designed from the ground up to be integrated and flexible enough for a corporation to leverage its existing corporate methodologies. This new AchievementPlus™ module also has a dual capacity to function individually as a fully operational, deliverable, and tested enterprise-wide product. However when operated as an integrated unit in a dynamic environment where employees are undergoing reviews, changing managers or changing positions, online learning keeps employee goals on track.”

The AchievementPlus™ Suite Enhances Human Capital Development

AchievementPlus™ has four major categories with a host supporting modules to enhance Human Capital Development Solutions: Performance Management, Compensation Management, Recruiting Management, and Learning Management. Together these integrate with key learning tools such as content, competencies, resources, training and development. The full suite of modules, in addition to Learning Management include: Performance Management, 360 Multi-Rater Feedback, Succession Planning, Compensation Management, Project Management, Job Posting & Requisitions, Learning Management, Training and Development, Competencies, Time and Expense, Survey Management, and Incentive and Bonus Planning. AchievementPlus™ integrates seamlessly with PeopleSoft, SAP, and Oracle.

Providing Clients with a Competitive Advantage

“As a key player in enterprise learning management, Softscape is leveraging its technology with its extensive collection of skills and competencies to provide clients with the competitive advantage in human capital development,” Dave Watkins noted.
