Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (PRWEB) June 10, 2005 -- IntraLearn Latin America Ltda. (ILLA), the South American subsidiary of the leading supplier of turnkey e-Learning software applications, IntraLearn Software Corporation, announced today in conjunction with its Brazilian partner, QuickMind Knowledge Management, that it has reached agreement with SulAmérica to license the IntraLearn SME to deliver e-Learning courses from their corporate university - UNIVERSAS.

“It was important to us that UNIVERSAS was able to manage and deliver courses from a centralized learning management system that was scalable and secure.” said Carmen Pereira, SulAmérica’s Training and Development Superintendent.

SulAmérica is one of the largest insurance conglomerates in Latin America serving more than 6 million clients from over 14 branches, 70 working offices and 31 Decentralized Attendance Units throughout Brazil. With the rapid introduction of new products and programs, an online university capable of delivering e-Learning to their employees and brokers is critical.

Initially, 10 online courses are been offered to approximately 5,900 employees. SulAmérica has plans to develop new courses and expand the offer to more than 26,000 insurance brokers during this year. The feature-rich IntraLearn SME allowed them to rapidly deliver interactive and measurable courses throughout the country.

Alfredo Leone, IntraLearn Latin America’s Managing Director, said, “We are honored to have been chosen by such a prestigious company as SulAmérica.” Fabio Barcellos, CEO of QuickMind, added “The worldwide reputation of IntraLearn clearly helped to support their decision.”

“The IntraLearn SME is an ideal product to fuel SulAmerica’s corporate university,” said Peter Banhazl, Executive Vice President of IntraLearn Software Corporation. “But having such an experienced company like QuickMind right in Rio de Janeiro was equally as important.”
