SKILLSOFT INTRODUCES DIRECT SALES PRESENCE TO BRING ITS WORLD-CLASS E-LEARNING SERVICES TO MORE INDIAN ENTERPRISES

A world-class e-learning provider, SkillSoft Asia Pacific (SkillSoft), will further expand its direct sales and support group in India and strengthen its position as a preferred e-learning partner of global India-based enterprises in the information technology and business process outsourcing sectors.

With close to a decade’s experience in the India market, SkillSoft will continue to service the ever-growing e-learning needs and requirements of India enterprises.

With greater local market sales and service support structures in key cities such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Hyderabad, SkillSoft is poised to play a role in contributing to the growth of India’s reputation as a major global source of skilled management professionals.

India enterprises will have a plethora of robust e-learning solutions and services direct from SkillSoft to choose from, including SkillSoft’s award-winning IT Skills Course Collection, Business Skills Course Collection and KnowledgeCenters. These products were lauded by the respected U.S-based Elearning! Magazine as being “best-in-class”.

According to a 2007 report by information technology research firm Gartner, India is recognised as one of the fastest growing markets in the world.

Glenn Nott, Vice President and Managing Director of SkillSoft Asia Pacific, says that SkillSoft acknowledges that with India’s expected market growth, increased challenges such as human resource recruitment, retention and performance improvement will need to be met.

“Market trends in Asia indicate high growth in demand for quality learning and human resource improvement, especially in India,” he said.

“Considering the size of the India enterprise market – and more importantly, the interest we are hearing from India enterprises in e-learning, the SkillSoft team is ready to support the growing enterprise needs in this exciting market.”
