About Atlantic Link, Inc.
Atlantic Link (atlantic-link.co.uk) provides the world's most advanced rapid elearning collaboration tools. Content Point is the first truly server-based, rapid eLearning tool and the official solution for collaborative, remote course authoring. Record breaking sales figures and big name clients demonstrate that Atlantic Link's rapid authoring software is revolutionizing eLearning 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.
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 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.
