Attenda Signs a Five Year Contract with Kaplan Financial

Attenda Limited has signed a five year contract with Kaplan Financial, to manage their new web-based training programme called En-Gage. Kaplan Financial is a UK-based provider of professional qualifications and business training. Kaplan Financial is part of Kaplan Inc., an international provider of educational and career services, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Washington Post Company. Kaplan Financial prepares over 40,000 students a year for professional accountancy exams such as the AAT, ACA, ACCA and CIMA. They also offer tax qualification programmes, training for investment professionals such as CPA, CPD training and specialist corporate and government training.

Kaplan Financial has planned to increase their use of Internet technologies to generate new and innovative ways of providing training services to their clients. The contract with Attenda is to provide hosting and management services for their new e-commerce infrastructure which will support the increased use of the Internet to harness leading Content Management and Learning Management systems, to provide web-based training.

The new infrastructure is based on Microsoft Technology with a highly secure and scalable 3-Tier architecture, web, application and database. As this is a completely new project for Kaplan, they have chosen to invest in core components of Attenda's M.O., namely the scalable bandwidth and the high performance SAN which allow Kaplan to easily manage demand as it increases, especially at peak times and to ensure their clients receive the very best experience when using En-Gage.
