Pan-European information technology services company Synstar PLC has adopted Global Knowledge Inc.'s pay-as-you-go training plan to introduce a cost-effective, anytime, anyplace e-learning solution for its engineers. Synstar, whose clients include Allied Irish Bank, DuPont, Laura Ashley and MTV, provides around-the-clock support ranging from system maintenance to disaster recovery. Synstar looked at implementing an e-learning solution three years ago, but was put off by the licensing costs. It recently revisited the issue and was taken with Global Knowledge's pay-as-you-go option.
