New CCHKNOWLEDGEPOINT Product Line Offers A Single Source For Essential Human Resources Solutions

CCHKnowledgePoint Brings Together CCH INCORPORATED’s Expert HR Content With KnowledgePoint’s Award-Winning Productivity Tools to Address Every Step of the Employee Lifecycle

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., June 27, 2002) Corporate human resource (HR) professionals and frontline managers now have a single authoritative source to trust for comprehensive HR solutions addressing every step of the employee lifecycle: CCHKnowledgePoint, which was introduced for the first time earlier this week at the Society of Human Resource Management 2002 Conference (

This new product line reflects the strengths of both CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources and employment law content, and KnowledgePoint, a pioneering developer of HR software and Web-based applications for the small- to mid-sized markets. CCHKnowledgePoint will offer a complete and integrated line of HR products and services to help companies of all sizes attract, retain and manage their workforces for optimal productivity.

"With CCHKnowledgePoint, you will benefit from having both trusted content and the technology and tools you need to effectively and efficiently do your job," says Catherine Wolfe, publisher of CCH’s Health and Human Resources group. "For example, CCHKnowledgePoint’s Performance Impact offers employers the most advanced system to ensure effective performance management in a legally compliant and cost-effective way. This is what CCHKnowledgePoint delivers across the board: essential, authoritative solutions to meet HR professionals’ needs."

Winning combination for customers

Separately, CCH and KnowledgePoint were market leaders that provided HR professionals and frontline managers with products that addressed HR needs in different ways — CCH through legal compliance information and software, and KnowledgePoint through productivity tools and applications. "Customers will benefit even more by having the best of both organizations in one place as CCHKnowledgePoint offers innovative, integrated new products that streamline HR processes," says Wolfe.

Developed in consultation with HR professionals, CCHKnowledgePoint products, such as the Performance Impact browser-based performance management system and Shared Learning™ online training programs, are designed to increase productivity by saving time and adding value. And CCHKnowledgePoint’s technological expertise ensures that its inventive solutions are delivered to customers the way they want them — on the Web, on their Intranet, hosted or Windows-based.

"From hiring to developing employees to termination, and everything in between, CCHKnowledgePoint will help HR professionals and managers work more productively and strategically, giving them the resources they need to put information into action within their organizations," says Ian Alexander, president of CCHKnowledgePoint.

Building block for growth

Based in Riverwoods, Illinois, CCH acquired the Petaluma, California-software company, KnowledgePoint, in 2000 to begin the process of merging its expert content with technology. Together now as one brand, CCHKnowledgePoint will develop new products, such as the recently launched HR AnswersNow™, that set a new standard for reliable, easy-to-use HR productivity solutions.

"CCH and KnowledgePoint are an excellent fit as both companies are highly respected and known for providing innovative and useful products at a great value," says Wolfe. "By coming together as CCHKnowledgePoint, we’re creating a building block for growth by integrating our extensive offerings so that customers look to us as the single trusted source of the solutions they need."
