QUMAS and NetDimensions Announce Strategic Partnership

QUMAS, a leader in Compliance and Quality Management Solutions for the Life Sciences industry, and NetDimensions, a global provider of performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, today announced an innovative new partnership that will enable organizations to manage all of their compliance and training requirements via a single, integrated compliance solution.

The partnership will combine the highly acclaimed electronic document management solution, QUMAS DocCompliance, with NetDimensions Learning, an award-winning, multilingual LMS (Learning Management System) that enables organizations to manage the entire learning and development process from enrollment and delivery to testing, tracking, and reporting, as well as offer a highly personalized learning environment with individual development plans, competencies, licenses, and certifications. The user experience is seamless between the two products as users can create, register for, and take eLearning courses constructed from documents managed by QUMAS DocCompliance.

The combined solution provides a highly scalable and configurable environment for launching, tracking, and managing interactive corporate compliance training. For example, employees can access corporate policies, company training modules or any SCORM-compliant content by simply logging on, registering for courses, and launching the modules. Dashboards and exportable reports detail user progress, grades, courses enrolled, and time spent taking courses to assist supervisors and managers in tracking operational compliance.

Additionally, content and documents from QUMAS can be easily browsed and converted into effective and measurable training. Finally, popular third-party courseware can be easily imported, launched, and tracked within NetDimensions Learning, dramatically reducing the time needed to create and deliver critical training.

“We are delighted to announce this partnership with NetDimensions” said Kevin O’Leary, CEO for QUMAS. “We put considerable thought and effort into selecting the best LMS for our client base and NetDimensions Learning was definitively the winner.  A common cross industry compliance requirement is that employees be properly trained on relevant policies and procedures, and that organizations be able to demonstrate that this training has taken place. It is difficult to be in a state of compliance if you are using disconnected solutions to manage your policies and procedures and your training and so the QUMAS suites now provides users with a integrated solution for tracking and managing training compliance, and further enhances the QUMAS Compliance Platform.”

Jay Shaw, NetDimensions CEO and Managing Director, was equally pleased with this new partnership. “QUMAS is a leading provider of Electronic Document Management Systems (EDMS) to the Life Sciences industry and we are delighted to form this strategic partnership with them. The integration between the NetDimensions Talent Suite and the QUMAS EDMS will be a great enabler to organizations dealing with the difficult task of compliance regulations worldwide. We look forward to a long and very fruitful partnership.”
