London, United Kingdom; January 10, 2013 - NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, and Larmer Brown, a certified reseller for NetDimensions’ award-winning learning and talent management products, has announced that Thames Water, the UK’s largest water and wastewater services provider, has chosen NetDimensions Learning to support the upgrade of its SCADA systems.
Thames Water has chosen NetDimensions Learning as the learning management portal for the 2,000 users utilising the new SCADA systems, with Larmer Brown providing the installation, configuration, training and technical support. The utilities company needed a solution that will not only serve as a delivery platform for the project’s training content but also provide the ability to track and report.
SCADA – supervisory control and data acquisition – is the name for the systems that monitor and control Thames Water’s operational assets and their performance. Thames Water’s five-year SCADA programme is replacing the site systems on over 60 sites, as well as more than 7,000 pieces of equipment.
Janice Brown, managing director of Larmer Brown, said: "We are very pleased Thames Water has selected the NetDimensions platform to help roll out their SCADA programme. We are impressed with the solutions offered by NetDimensions and feel their eLearning capabilities can bring considerable benefits to Thames Water, not only in terms of time and cost savings but also in delivering a solution that will enable them to publish and structure all of their SCORM content from any source, no matter what content development tool they use."
Kathryn Moore of Thames Water, senior manager on the SCADA programme, said: "We have great confidence in Larmer Brown’s abilities having used them on previous projects. NetDimensions Learning was chosen because it is an cost-effective solution that meets all of our requirements in terms of functionality as well as offering a flexible look and feel so that, with the support of Larmer Brown, we can create a truly intuitive and easy to use learning environment for the crucial training we are doing with more than 2,000 employees across Thames Water."
Liam Butler, General Manager at NetDimensions (UK) Limited said: "We are very excited to have Larmer Brown as part of NetDimensions' global reseller network and to begin our partnership by jointly delivering a very successful implementation for Thames Water’s SCADA programme."
