Channel management software vendor, iAsset, will be merging with learning solutions provider, A.S.K Learning.
Under the merger, A.S.K’s learning management systems and eLearning developers will be absorbed into the technology and team behind iAsset.
Distribution Central’s parent company, Frew Family Investments purchased A.S.K Learning in November 2008. Frew formally launched the iAsset business in August last year. iAsset sits as a separate entity to Distribution Central.
A.S.K maintains offices in Sydney, San Jose, Singapore and Beijing.
Since the acquisition, the two companies have worked closely together to further develop and integrate their SaaS systems and channel services.
The Sydney head office is the first to implement the change and branch offices will follow suit.
There will be no structural change internally to the organisation.
iAsset President and CEO, Scott Frew, said the merger will provide the channel with complete end-to-end service to support their channel business.
“It will be a powerful and compelling service for the entire IT channel – manufacturer, reseller, distributor and service provider,” Frew said in a statement.
“In particular, it is critical for manufacturers to understand where all the people that have been trained in their channel are currently, their certification level and movement inside the industry.
“Integrating A.S.K Learning’s leading Learning Management System “Inspire”, iAsset will give manufacturers an unprecedented edge offering the ability to better manage their channel.”
