Savannah, GA - October 11, 2004 - OnPoint Digital, Inc. ("OnPoint"), an e-learning solutions developer and services company, today announced the general availability of the OnPoint Learning & Performance Management ("OLPM") Suite, the next generation release of its award-winning training and development solution for middle market and enterprise corporate customers. The new software release extends the core functionality of OnPoint's current OnPoint Course Manager ("OPCM") offering and includes myriad enhancements across several areas including improved ease of use, customization, third party integration and reporting/analytics. Please refer to the attachment for a complete list of version 2.0 enhancements.
Major features included in the new system include improvements in the user/learner interface, customer-specific branding/customization, user/group-specific announcements, new assessment features including randomized tests and more standard assessment types like performance appraisals and exit interviews, timed courses, enhanced library functionality and course completion certificates, and detailed reporting and analysis of course and user progress statistics and metrics. All of these enhancements are considered part of the core platform and offered at no additional charge to customers.
The foundation for the new version 2.0 platform leverages the latest updates in popular open source tools and applications including Apache/Jakarta Tomcat (application server) and MySQL Pro (database server) which both offer superior, enterprise-class performance for a fraction of the price of other mainstream offerings. Compatibility with Microsoft XP's Service Pack 2 is also included in the new release.
"This release is the culmination of over two years of customer and analyst feedback and positions OnPoint as not only a value leader but also a true innovator in this marketplace," said
The new release is available to new customers immediately and no cost software upgrades and database migrations for existing customers covered under annual software support contracts will continue through the rest of the calendar year for both ASP hosted and enterprise license installations.
