Wind River is a global leader in the production of Device Software Optimization, providing the technology to efficiently develop and run device software, using development tools, middleware and simulation technology. They wanted to extend their business to include education and training, turning to Seertech to provide a platform to facilitate this expansion.
Seertech was chosen because it could provide a global Learning Management System (LMS) infrastructure, that could be configured to meet Wind River's in-house needs, whilst offering a comprehensive e-commerce option, enabling the sale of learning content to external users. The solution would significantly expand their external training business, to include a dedicated pool of software developers, without increasing headcount.
Seertech's iLearning PLUS product also provided deep integration with other core systems including Oracle Financials, as well as providing a comprehensive reporting capability, making it easy to see the ROI of their training programs.
Wind River's Learning and Organisation Development team worked closely with Seertech to configure their iLearning PLUS LMS to address the new business needs quickly.
The agreement with Seertech Solutions covered two areas:
1) hosting and support agreement covering the management of the learning infrastructure
2) contracted pay-as-you-go agreement covering ongoing consulting and functionality changes to truly leverage the iLearning PLUS investment.
The project delivered the required functionality, creating a globally relevant and standardized service, supporting new offerings and improving the customer experience, whilst standardizing and automating the training business processes to support real-time monitoring and reporting of business performance.
The integration with Oracle Financials ensured all required reporting was available without extra administration overhead.
