Cobent and Pennant Information Services have entered into an agreement which will help Cobent expand its reach within the defence and government sectors and expand its e-learning content development capability and will enable Pennant to expand its solutions and services to customers by leveraging Cobent’s learning management products and expertise.
The agreement with Pennant is part of Cobent’s strategy to develop relationships with organisations that help cultivate new channels to market, expand product offering and break into new markets and sectors.
Chris Snook, Pennant’s CEO, said: “Our expertise is predominantly in developing content for our customers. Working with Cobent gives us a complementary partner by providing a tried and tested learning content platform.
“Our customers benefit because not only will they have our high quality content, but we can also provide them with the tools and knowledge for delivering that content in the most efficient and cost effective method to their staff.”
Howard Sears, Cobent’s CEO, said: “This is a significant and strategic agreement for Cobent because it will help us bring learning management products and consultancy services to markets – especially in government, defence, aerospace and oil & gas – that are difficult to enter. The combination of Pennant’s content and content creation capabilities and Cobent’s experience in learning management and delivery offers customers a very powerful and comprehensive solution.”
Under the agreement, Pennant will be able to incorporate Cobent’s Learning Compliance Suite (LCS) as part of an end-to-end solution for its customers and Cobent will get access to Pennant’s content creation services to enhance its proposition to customers.
