About Atlantic Link
Atlantic Link provides the world's most advanced rapid e-learning tools. Record breaking sales figures and big name clients demonstrate that Atlantic Link's rapid authoring software is revolutionizing e-learning production.
Atlantic Link Limited was founded in 2002 by Mike Alcock and Tony Reddington. Having worked in e-learning for many years, Tony and Mike had come to the conclusion that e-learning was too slow and expensive to produce, too complicated for most people to create and almost impossible to maintain. Starting with a clean sheet of paper, and with a team of the best software developers in the world, they threw out the rulebook and wrote a brand new e-learning architecture based on the latest generation of Microsoft technologies.
The aim is to bring e-learning development to ordinary users. With the Atlantic Link software, anyone who can use a computer can create stunning e-learning and unleash the knowledge locked within themselves and their organizations.
Atlantic Link has built up an impressive blue-chip customer base in the UK USA, and overseas including world-leading brands from the automotive, finance, retail and government sectors. It is also developing an extensive channel partnership network for the provision of e-learning solutions internationally.
Atlantic Link's software solutions - Capture Point™, Content Point™, ICMS™ and Knowledge Point™ - are world leaders in their application and technology approach, and the company has a significant lead over its competition in this field. Product development for the current range of products has been completed, and the products are highly marketable, with ongoing developments targeted at feature addition and enhancement to capture customer and future market needs.
