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
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 (www.cchknowledgepoint.com).
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
"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."
CCHKnowledgePoint represents a merging of the KnowledgePoint
and CCH INCORPORATED human resource product lines, providing integrated
solutions that meet HR professionals and frontline managers’ essential
needs. For more information about CCHKnowledgePoint products and services,
