ExpertusONE Adds Innovative New Functionality to Address Challenges Specific to Partner Channels and Product Readiness

First-of-Its-Kind ExpertusONE Product Specializes on "Readiness" for Geographically Dispersed Sales Forces

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2011) - Expertus (, a global provider of software and services that optimize the business impact of learning, today announced an updated feature set for its award-winning ExpertusONE™ product focused on training channel partners ( While discussions of "sales force readiness" and "product readiness" are increasing in frequency, ExpertusONE is the first learning platform to offer dispersed sales forces a broad range of learning, collaboration and knowledge access tools within a highly intuitive, branded and personalized environment.

ExpertusONE for Partner Channels was created for executives responsible for the performance of large, geographically dispersed partner channels selling complex, rapidly changing products. These executives have long been asking for a solution that helps to continuously drive channel readiness and capture a high-level of channel mindshare in order to maximize revenue.

"Channel partner relationships are a critical sales component for many companies, yet
risking under-performance because of poor training, a lack of knowledge, or lost partner attention has historically been a challenge," said Ramesh Ramani, founder and CEO of Expertus. "ExpertusONE for Partner Channels has addressed the many issues associated with training a busy, displaced workforce and creates a smooth learning experience regardless of location."

ExpertusONE for Partner Channels is a cloud-based channel partner readiness platform that significantly improves channel productivity and effectiveness by providing partner personnel with a single destination for learning, collaboration and immediate access to all available knowledge assets. Built from the ground up, it gives all channel partners rapid access to everything they need to maintain the knowledge required to effectively perform their roles.
