ARLINGTON, VA, May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE: RST) today announced the availability of its language learning solutions specifically geared for small and medium business customers on the ADP® Marketplace. Through this new cloud-based “one-stop-shop” designed to help employers manage an ecosystem of enterprise applications from ADP and its partners, more than 500,000 businesses will now be able to easily give their employees access to Rosetta Stone and deploy a company-wide language learning program. This opens new doors for small to medium sized companies who may not otherwise have the infrastructure and resources of larger organizations to implement such robust, measured training programs that are completely automated and cater to their specific business language needs.
“The ADP Marketplace is designed to offer tools that allow business leaders to focus on what is important – their employees – instead of administrative tasks that take up to 58 percent of an HR decision makers’ time,” said Don Weinstein, chief strategy officer, ADP. “Rosetta Stone can easily integrate clients’ workforce data and deliver an enhanced user experience to enable critical language training for companies who might not have access otherwise.”
“ADP is the perfect partner for us to work with to reach small and medium business leaders looking to solve the language skills gap while embracing and leveraging diversity within their workforce,” said Judy Verses, President of Rosetta Stone’s Global Enterprise and Education division. “Their clients are looking for trusted resources that are easy to deploy to their workforce and clearly deliver against their business objectives. Together with ADP, we’re now enabling employers who may struggle to implement core human capital management and business programs to seamlessly integrate Rosetta Stone across their entire organization, supporting true inclusion and a new way to engage employees.”
This relationship with ADP signals a new avenue for Rosetta Stone to better serve the small and medium business market through strategic partners and resellers that have existing relationships in that space. Rosetta Stone will work with these partners to develop product package offerings that address small and medium business needs in an affordable price range.
