This historic move integrates two of the oldest and most respected educational companies in the SharePoint space under the same leadership. Post acquisition, both companies will continue to operate as independent business units, with Combined Knowledge specializing in EMEA opportunities and Mindsharp continuing to focus on accounts in North America.
“Our customers are not looking for traditional training providers; they need highly specialized, global partners who understand real business challenges and who can build custom educational programs and roadmaps based on the individual needs of a business,” states Steve Smith, CEO of Combined Knowledge. “With this acquisition, we now combine the North American reach and brand recognition of Mindsharp with the products, services, and training courseware from Combined Knowledge in the UK to provide an end-to-end education and adoption solution for customers on both continents.
Combined Knowledge and Mindsharp training offerings and support services lead the industry in SharePoint educational content and are available worldwide via training partners and resellers, including Microsoft Gold Certified partners.
Available training offerings include:
- traditional classroom training
- private, in-house custom workshops and courses
- online courses and Computer-Based Training
- custom video production
- support and helpdesk products
- just-in-time training and videos
- on-demand digital training programs for long-term adoption
- education for the entire workforce
“With both of these brands under one ownership, customers now have a single go-to supplier who can provide comprehensive training solutions,” continues Smith. “No other education provider in this sector can provide a comparable one-stop educational offering.”
