Knowledge Management Solutions, Inc. (KMSI), a leader in Web-Based Training and Talent Management Solutions, today announced a partnership agreement with RWD Technologies, Inc. (RWD) to provide eLearning solutions to government agencies. Under the agreement, KMSI will supply its KMx Advanced Distributed Learning Platform and RWD will provide consulting, technical and e-learning content development services to government agencies in support of the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) e-Training Service Provider initiative.
"The partnership with RWD will provide government agencies with the best possible combination of technology and services available in the learning technology marketplace" said Terry L. McPherson, Director Implementation Services of KMSI. "Leveraging the capabilities of our KMx platform, RWD will be able to deliver the next generation in learning technology for significantly less than other competitive offerings. The partnership could not have come at a better time for an industry that, due to recent consolidation, has caused numerous government agencies to look for new learning technology leadership."
To promote the partnership, a webcast is scheduled for September 25, 2007 at 2:00 PM ET. Registration for the event is free. The webcast will provide participants with important information about the NTIS eLearning initiative. Representatives from NTIS, RWD and KMSI will be available to discuss overall capabilities and answer participant questions.
