SEW-EURODRIVE Selects NetDimensions Talent Suite to Deliver Efficient Learning all around the World

Neu-Isenburg, Germany; January 8, 2015 -- NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, announced today that Germany-based SEW-EURODRIVE, a leading provider of drive automation solutions, has selected NetDimensions Talent Suite to train over 16,000 employees worldwide.

As one of the most innovative market leaders in the field of drive technology, SEW-EURODRIVE is confronted with the challenge of efficient knowledge management at a global scale. With products and services becoming increasingly complex, SEW-EURODRIVE needed a Learning Management System (LMS) that would allow the distribution of training content quickly and efficiently across the whole "SEW world."

Moreover, SEW-EURODRIVE wanted to provide targeted and personalized learning to its workforce at the moment of need and all around the world. Because of its decentralized organization structure, SEW-EURODRIVE needed a flexible learning solution that could be adapted to the specific needs of the different countries and to the preferences of individual employees.

"We were seeking a new solution to allow us to increase flexibility by providing a variety of learning opportunities to our workforce, such as social and online learning activities. We also wanted to increase learning on-the-job, as well as improve reporting. The goal is to establish lean processes for learning and development at a global level," explained Sabine Kühnlein, Project Manager, Learning Management System at SEW-EURODRIVE.

After an extensive evaluation process, which included approximately 400 different criteria, eight solutions were shortlisted. NetDimensions Learning (an application of NetDimensions Talent Suite) was selected, because it covered the highest number of functional criteria and the team at SEW felt that NetDimensions would be the best fit for the culture of SEW-EURODRIVE.

"The coverage of our functional requirements, the fitting to our in-house IT systems, and the ability to implement the system on-premise were all critical. Our LMS needs to interface to several other systems, like our core HR system, SAP HR, and our authoring tool TT Knowledge Force (TTKF). NetDimensions Learning is a flexible, multi-language solution. It allows us to personalize the visual design and make the learning experience engaging for our users."

"Throughout the selection process it became clear to us that the whole NetDimensions team is really willing to fulfill our requirements and that they are working hard to improve their solutions according to the practical needs of their clients," concludes Kühnlein.

Learning is an integral part of the talent management process at SEW-EURODRIVE. The company's goal is to encourage staff to learn more autonomously on a daily basis, with the support of their line managers. Even though the focus is currently on learning and development, it is also critical that integrating the Learning Management System with a complete enterprise Talent Management solution is available to the company.

Dr. Hilmar Döring, Head of HR at SEW-EURODRIVE, commented: "With the new system we create a way to multiply learning opportunities within the company, which is a major step on our way to truly becoming a Learning Organization."

"We are delighted to work with SEW-EURODRIVE and support the innovation in their learning and talent management. We believe that NetDimensions Talent Suite is an ideal solution for global manufacturing companies like SEW-EURODRIVE, which have to manage training globally and make sure they meet strict compliance regulations in multiple different markets," commented Liam Butler, General Manager for EMEA at NetDimensions.
