Xtention LCMS: Scalable, Flexible and Affordable
Columbia, S.C., February 17, 2005 – Xtention Incorporated, creator of the
Xtention Learning Management System and Learning Content Management System,
today announced the signing of a hosted agreement with Magellan Health
Services, the nation's leading managed behavioral health care organization.
Magellan Health Services provides managed mental health and substance abuse
services as well as employee assistance and work-life programs for nearly 60
million individuals nationwide. Magellan's internal training needs necessitated
a learning management system to aid in the development, management and delivery
Web-based, instructor-led and video-based learning. Xtention will also allow
Magellan to track employee regulatory requirements and certifications.

''We are pleased to contract with Xtention to enhance and expand Magellan's
learning environment. As the nation's expert in delivering trusted, innovative
behavioral health solutions to those we serve, it is essential that we provide
relevant, timely and comprehensive learning resources to our team of more than
4,400 employees to continue to appropriately address the nation's evolving
behavioral health care needs,'' said Carlos Figueroa, vice president of talent
management for Magellan Health Services.
''The Xtention Learning System, coupled with the Content Authoring System, will
equip the training team at Magellan to operate with less administrative burden
and instead focus more resources on organizational development strategies,''
said Mitch Smith, president and CEO of Xtention. ''Xtention is privileged to
have another leading healthcare company join our family.''
Xtention's Enterprise LCMS has consistently been recognized by industry
veterans as a cost-effective application to manage training, certification,
testing, and surveys for medium to enterprise organizations. Xtention's license
is the most cost-effective in the industry, thus allowing organizations, even
with training budget constraints, to effectively and efficiently manage
internal and external training costs. Xtention is built in a modular fashion
which allows organizations to acquire only those features needed, while adding
features as their training matures. Current modules include Content Authoring,
Skills Assessment, Survey and Evaluation, Ecommerce, and Events.
