By eliminating the burden of locating, integrating and managing content from multiple vendors, iContent allows users to focus on more strategic activities and using these materials to meet their talent management needs.&rdquo;<br /><br />iContent&rsquo;s compliance offerings now include materials from LearnWright Inc., Quality Food Training and WeComply. LearnWright Inc. offers multimedia training designed for the health and life science industries. iContent users involved with the development, testing and manufacturing of finished pharmaceutical products, biotech products, and blood and plasma products can use this training to comply with regulatory and quality requirements. Through the offerings from Quality Food Training, a training and consultancy company working throughout Britain, Ireland and Europe, iContent users in the food and packaging industry have access to materials ranging from food safety and hygiene to forklift training and risk assessment.  In addition, WeComply gives iContent users compliance training related to different workplace issues, such as business and law, discrimination and harassment, financial integrity, health care and information security.<br /><br />Content from getAbstract and KESDEE significantly expands iContent&rsquo;s current finance, risk and business offerings. getAbstract offers thousands of business book summaries from topic areas such as leadership and management, sales and marketing, finance, HR and IT. KESDEE&rsquo;s offerings, which include 500 accredited courses spanning approximately 1,500 hours of e-learning, provide iContent users with access to finance topics that include credit risk management, anti-money laundering, insurance and accounting. KESDEE also provides online tutorials for Risk Manager Certification Exams, such as Financial Risk Manager (FRM) and Professional Risk Manager (PRM).<br /><br />Companies are realizing substantial benefits from adopting iContent as the preferred solution for purchasing, delivering, and managing learning and talent management content.
