International Workplace

ESP – An award-winning commercial platform that will revolutionise your business

ESP Architecture


What is the ESP?

The Enterprise Services Platform (ESP) is a collection of learning technologies and commercial performance support services that, when combined, form a traditional Learning Management System with eCommerce capabilities. Many of these services can be used independently or as a small collection of services that can be used by clients to integrate with and enhance their existing corporate systems.

The International Workplace ESP is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering for businesses that do not have an established Learning Management Solution (LMS) but want to deliver eLearning content to their workforce or customers, with the option of charging for secure access to trackable content.

The PaaS is an ecosystem of functionality that facilitates seamless access to, and the consumption of, eLearning content via industry standard protocols and secure, cloud-based services.
