Altiris, a leading provider of service-oriented management software that allows IT organizations to manage, secure and service IT assets, was looking for a learning management solution to implement for a training commerce initiative targeting its clients’ end users.
Altiris needed a robust and intuitive learning management system to manage online and instructor-led IT training, and also required robust e-commerce functionality to calculate multiple international currencies, including U.S. dollars, Japanese yen, Singapore dollars, New Zealand dollars, Australian dollars, British sterling pounds and euros. As an extension of its multiple-
currency provision, Altiris also required that its solution calculate domestic state taxes and the international Value-Added Tax (VAT) and Goods and Services Tax (GST), which are required for international transactions.
Additionally, Altiris required a flexible system that could be integrated with its existing licensing processes and fulfillment tools. This would allow the company to improve existing business processes and incorporate the new LMS and its capabilities to streamline process workflow.
Initially, Altiris had hoped to find an out-of-the-box learning solution that could meet its needs. After conducting a great deal of research, Altiris realized it needed a provider that could centralize instructor-led training and online learning registration, a locator map to help students select instructor-led classes that are offered near them, and an e-commerce system that could provide comprehensive, multiple-currency reporting.
While Altiris already had an e-learning system in place to provide training classes for its clients, it needed help scaling the solution for global use. Through collaboration with Altiris, GeoLearning was able to create a one-stop location to facilitate all of the online and instructor-led course registration needs of the students.
