Since launching iContent at last year's conference, we have seen significant adoption across a wide range of customers and industries, from large enterprise customers like the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, to highly-regarded financial services institutions and organizations including Western Union and Commerce Bank

iContent's enhanced entitlement security will allow administrators to view and manage all usage information for their organization's custom and commercial content from a single centralized location. By restricting content access to authorized individuals, iContent entitlement protects an organization's proprietary, often competitive, content by preventing unauthorized users from viewing, accessing, copying, or sharing it without permission.
Plateau has also added Course Preview and Custom Course Upload features to iContent. Course Preview allows users to preview or "test-drive" course content before they purchase to ensure that it meets their learning, training, and development needs. The Custom Course Upload feature allows iContent users to host and manage their custom content in the iContent infrastructure. Once uploaded to iContent, these courses are tested and integrated into the customer's learning management system (LMS). Customers who do not have an LMS can select the iContent eLearning Delivery System during the checkout process, which will allow them to access their courses from through a limited-use, hosted version of Plateau's learning management system (LMS). This provides a flexible, cost-effective way for smaller organizations and business units with limited budgets to purchase, access, track, and report on learning and training activities material on an as needed basis - without having to purchase or deploy a full-fledged LMS.
In addition to new functionality, Plateau announced the new iContent Flex Card, eliminating the hassle of individual payment transactions every time a content need is identified. Similar to a gift card, organizations load their iContent Flex Card with a set amount, and training administrators swipe the card to pay for content needs throughout the year. As the balance decreases, users can reload the iContent Flex Card. To preview this innovative "procure-as-you-go" model, Plateau is inviting HR Technology conference attendees to try iContent free from the comfort of their desktop. Those interested in experiencing the simplicity and value of iContent can stop by Plateau's booth to learn how they can obtain a free iContent Trial Card that will provide trial access to select iContent courses for a limited time.
Recognized as one of the Top Training Products of 2007 by HR Executive, iContent is currently supporting the training efforts of many of the world's leading organizations with more than 25,000 courses in areas such as business, leadership development, legal, healthcare, workplace and safety compliance from a constantly growing list of content providers. Current iContent partners include Brightline Compliance, CourseAvenue, Drug-Free Business Solutions, Element K, getAbstract, Medcom Trainex, MedSenses, Monitor Group, Ninth House, PureSafety, SkillSoft/Thomson NETg, and WeComply.
"Since launching iContent at last year's conference, we have seen significant adoption across a wide range of customers and industries, from large enterprise customers like the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, to highly-regarded financial services institutions and organizations including Western Union and Commerce Bank," said Paul Sparta, Chairman and CEO, Plateau.
