The agreement with Pennant is part of Cobentís 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, Pennantís 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, Cobentís 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 Ė especially in government, defence, aerospace and oil & gas - that are difficult to enter. The combination of Pennantís content and content creation capabilities and Cobentís experience in learning management and delivery offers customers a very powerful and comprehensive solution."

Under the agreement, Pennant will be able to incorporate Cobentís Learning Compliance Suite (LCS) as part of an end-to-end solution for its customers and Cobent will get access to Pennantís content creation services to enhance its proposition to customers.

The Cobent Learning Compliance Suite (LCS) is a powerful set of modules designed to make enterprise wide learning easier to manage and control.
