Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) March 2, 2005
CPP, Inc., today announced the launch of its new Professional Services Organization. CPP Professional Services offers a full range of training, research, and technology services that make it easy for any organization to employ CPPÂs well-known assessments and related applications as part of a comprehensive training and organization development program.
For almost 50 years, CPP has published assessments and training tools that have helped many thousands of organizations and millions of individuals. And for almost a decade, it has provided cutting-edge online testing and administration. During that time, applications have become much more numerous and technology more complex. CPPÂs new Professional Services offerings address both the challenges and the opportunities generated by this greater complexity and broader choice.
ÂOur customers have been asking us for these capabilities for a number of years,Â comments Mike Fox, CPPÂs Divisional Director of Marketing. ÂWe are now in a position to provide complete, one-stop service delivery that ensures our customers can not only benefit from some of the most established and trusted assessments in the world, but also be confident that they will gain maximum value from these products in the shortest time. Whether customers are dealing with leadership and coaching, team development, career exploration, conflict management, or staff retention needs, our Professional Services team is there to help them improve hiring decisions, reduce attrition, and optimize personal and professional development.Â
ÂThe Professional Services package is an important strategic opportunity for CPP to become a partner and mentor to our customers,Â observes Fox. ÂInstead of just being a vendor, we now can work with our customers to ensure that they can quickly recognize measurable value from their training and development investment.Â
There are three distinct facets to CPPÂs Professional Services offerings: Training Services, Research Services, and Technology Services. A customized engagement begins with needs analysis, and the resulting solution definition may entail the use of one, two, or all three of the facets.
As Fox explains, ÂTogether, CPPÂs training, research, and technology services allow our customers to receive and provide the training they need, using the products that offer them the best solution, and with research and technical support that delivers results that can make a real difference to the entire company.Â
About Training Services
Training Services are designed to complement an organizationÂs in-house training and development capabilities. A typical engagement might involve reviewing a portion of the organizationÂs development strategy, administering selected assessments, conducting interpretation and training sessions, and providing training for administrators and trainers. These services are provided by CPP professionals or by highly qualified partners. One important goal of an engagement is to leave the customer more self-sufficient at the conclusion.
About Research Services
In some cases, research is required for the most effective application of assessment-based training or coaching in an organization, and also for more strategic purposes such as planning organizational growth. With the largest database and most experienced researchers in the field of psychological assessment, CPPÂs Research Services team can advise a customer whether and how research can helpÂand then provide services tailored to the customerÂs unique requirements.
About Technology Services
Online administration of assessments and their results is essential for many organizations. For some, CPPÂs hosted SkillOne.com solution is perfect, but others need to integrate assessments with an existing Learning Management System or other system. In that case, CPPÂs Technology Services can provide the right solution, Whether that solution is based on a customized implementation of CPP Web Services technology, or development of tailor-made reports based on the customerÂs own data, Technology Services, can help. With highly experienced, Silicon Valley-based technology experts on staff, CPP can offer customers the best in the business.
