<strong>Mountain View, Calif. &mdash; Jan. 14</strong><br />SumTotal Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:SUMT), a global provider of talent and learning management solutions, announced that FEMSA (NYSE:FMX), the leading beverage company in Latin America, has deployed the SumTotal TotalLMS solution to manage learning in its operating units in Mexico and South America.<br /><br />FEMSA will use TotalLMS as part of a companywide talent management initiative to standardize HR processes in its operating units including FEMSA Cerveza, one of the most innovative brewers and an important beer exporter to the United States with well known brands like Tecate, Dos Equis and Sol; Coca-Cola FEMSA, the largest bottler of Coca-Cola outside of the US, and OXXO, the largest and fastest growing convenience store chain in Mexico with over 5,200 stores.<br /><br />With close to 100,000 employees worldwide, FEMSA develops future leaders from within its own ranks and needed a robust and scalable solution to ensure that employees in all countries and operating units receive training which is aligned with their personal development plans.<br /><br />”SumTotal provides us with a very flexible platform which allows us to standardize learning throughout a global organization while still accommodating the specific needs of our different business units and recognizing that there are different requirements in Mexico than in Venezuela or Brasil,” said Luis Enrique Flores, FEMSA Manager of HR Projects. “With SumTotal, we will be able to consolidate data and processes into a single system that will reduce operating costs and allow management to have better visibility regarding how well our people at all levels are prepared.”<br /><br />The solution was implemented by SumTotal&#39;s Mexico partner SistemasCBT. “We are very pleased to have FEMSA join the large community of SumTotal users in Mexico,” said Valentin Gonzalez, managing director of SistemasCBT. “The FEMSA implementation was a large one that included integration with their HRIS system, configuring multiple domains and deploying various types of content in a blended environment. We look forward to FEMSA&#39;s active participation in our local user group where clients have the opportunity to share best practices.”<br /><br />”In order to grow and expand business opportunities, organizations need to develop talent from within,” said Jack Kramer, vice president and general manager, International Sales, Marketing and Services. “SumTotal&#39;s solution can help companies develop future leaders and prepare the workforce for new challenges, while developing talent across the organization.” <br />
