NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 6, 2013) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Hyundai Motor Europe has selected Infor's SaaS-based integrated learning management software (LMS) and learning content management software (LCMS) to support its pan-European business. This new assignment follows the recent acquisition by Infor of global learning technologies innovator CERTPOINT Systems.
With pilots underway, the new integrated LMS/LCMS training platform, which delivers content creation and advanced social and mobile capabilities, is planned to provide rapid, contextual knowledge to approximately 30,000 users, in more than 2,500 dealerships, across European 28 markets.
"To excel in today's rapidly changing market, companies must provide exceptional customer service in order drive business forward," said Ara Ohanian, VP, General Manager, Infor Learning Technologies. "The platform's speed-to-knowledge in both structured and unstructured formats will allow Hyundai to spread knowledge swiftly to its expanding workforce."
The pan-European learning management initiative is a first for Hyundai Motor Europe. The multi-lingual integrated LMS/LCMS platform enables content creation and matches multiple specifications with one single installation.
"As a modern premium car manufacturer we sought an innovative learning technologies partner which could not only deliver rapid knowledge and business impact, but would also reflect the sophistication of our brand," said Dieter Tolksdorf, Training Manager, Hyundai Motor Europe. "Following a competitive review, it was clear that Infor's pioneering integrated LMS and LCMS technologies, its ability to deliver across the extended enterprise and its proven pan-European expertise would be a very smart solution to the needs of the diverse European market."
The new platform is part of Hyundai's strategy to deliver premium customer experience by supporting the retail network with rapid, consistent, contextual knowledge.
