Cornerstone OnDemand, provider of on-demand, integrated learning and talent management (ITM) software, content and services, today announced growing demand for - and new enhancements to - Cornerstone Extended Enterprise, which is used to deliver training, certification programmes and knowledge assets to a company’s extended enterprise of resellers, suppliers, distributors, customers and members. Cornerstone’s Extended Enterprise solution helps organisations increase top-line revenue from more productive channels, reduce the cost to sell to, and service, customers and channels, as well as increase brand awareness and loyalty.

Cornerstone understands and specialises in the business challenges and unique requirements of servicing this distinct audience. Cornerstone Extended Enterprise has been further enhanced to address these requirements and train, certify and disseminate information to partners and customers more effectively. Solution highlights include:

1. User Experience – Cornerstone Extended Enterprise now provides guest-user access, which allows access to designated functions without forcing users to log into the application. This enables a business-to-consumer environment where people can search and browse for training, certifications and knowledge offerings before registering for, or buying, the related items. In addition, Cornerstone Portal Builder allows clients to create custom portal pages on top of, or within, the application to both enhance user experience and provide a comprehensive portal and learning management solution.

2. Training, Certification and Knowledge Management – Cornerstone OnDemand’s Extended Enterprise solution allows organisations to deliver full curricula including blends of e-learning, traditional instructor-led training, virtual classroom sessions, certifications, knowledge assets, tests, evaluations and surveys – with full reporting tools and dashboards – in 13 languages to its vast network of customers, members and partners.

3. Profit Centre Support – Cornerstone Extended Enterprise includes an e-commerce engine that allows clients to charge for any of the assets available to its extended enterprise users. The robust configuration settings and business rules allow organisations to set prices by user group and/or individual asset, and provide full support for multiple currencies.

"Cornerstone OnDemand truly understands the needs of the extended enterprise audience, which can be vastly different from those of our internal employees," said Phil Barnette, Manager, United Dealer Training at United Stationers Supply Co. "They continue to invest in their Extended Enterprise solution, which allows us to better connect with, train, certify and measure our extended enterprise of Independent Resellers across the nation."

Cornerstone provides a true Software-as-a-Service model that enables organisations to deploy, manage and enhance the solution to meet ever-changing business needs. Leading companies such as CalChamber, IFMA, Pearson, Randstad, Trend Micro, United Stationers and Websense have chosen Cornerstone to service their extended enterprises around the world.

"In today’s competitive environment, effective training programmes don’t stop with an organisation’s employee base," said Adam Miller, President and CEO, Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc.

"Cornerstone helps companies convert the extended enterprise from a far-flung network of customers and partners into a valuable, cohesive part of the business. Cornerstone Extended Enterprise includes industry-leading functionality that makes Cornerstone the only choice for servicing this audience."
