<strong>Mountain View, Calif. &mdash; Oct. 3</strong><br />Wilmington, N.C.-based CourseUp!, a developer of computer-based training and knowledge-delivery solutions for franchise organizations and professional associations, has picked SumTotal Systems Inc. to provide technology for delivering, among other things, instruction on how best to launch and run a franchise. <br /><br />As part of the contract, CourseUp! purchased SumTotal&#39;s ResultsOnDemand and SumTotal&#39;s ToolBook Instructor 9.0.<br /><br />”ResultsOnDemand will underpin how we transfer knowledge from a corporation to its franchisees,” said CourseUp! President Arnold Murdock, Ph.D. “Traditionally, franchise organizations have passed knowledge to franchisees through conference calls, face-to-face<br />meetings and manuals. Relaying information with phone calls and manuals is not the best way to teach someone about the intricacies of running a franchise. We feel our customers will benefit from the speed and ease offered by ResultsOnDemand.”<br /><br />ResultsOnDemand is SumTotal&#39;s software-as-a-service (SaaS) model for analyzing performance and delivering learning over the Internet.<br /><br />ToolBook Instructor 9.0 is the newest version of SumTotal&#39;s product for developing software simulations and e-learning content.<br /><br />Murdock said the online services delivered by ResultsOnDemand may include developmental programs on such topics as merchandising, accounting and management. He also said companies call on CourseUp! to supply technical skills training to their franchisees. So CourseUp! purchased ToolBook for developing online assessments and scenario-based training.<br /><br />”With ToolBook and ResultsOnDemand, we can develop training content for franchisees and track the use of that content over time,” Murdock said. “The one-two punch of ResultsOnDemand and ToolBook gives us a user-friendly software solution for providing e-learning that&#39;s better than anything we could find on the market.”
