Plateau Systems

Plateau Systems is a provider of Talent Management Systems that provides SaaS solutions that allow organizations to develop, analyze and manage organizational talent, one of the key factors that affect workforce productivity and operating performance. Plateau is headquartered in Arlington, Virginia with offices across the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Plateau Systems was founded in 1996 by Paul Sparta, Chairman and CEO, and Brad Cooper, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy – both of whom still serve as Plateau executives. Plateau Systems developed one of the industry’s first Learning Management Systems (LMS), systems usually used by Human Resources departments for the management and delivery of learning and training across organizations. Plateau’s customers include major global organizations and government agencies. In early 2000, Plateau Systems delivered an integrated J2EE-based talent management platform, which allowed organizations to link learning and training with employee performance to measure whether employee goals were aligned with corporate objectives. In 2007, Plateau acquired Nuvosoft, a provider of Web-based compensation management software and integrated Nuvosoft’s functionality into its talent management platform.

Plateau Systems’s major offering is the Plateau Talent Management Suite (TMS), which comprises

  • Learning Management
  • Performance Management
  • Career & Succession Planning
  • Compensation Management

Additional products:

  • Plateau Talent Gateway combines social networking and collaboration technology with content management and user management functionality.
  • Plateau Analytics, a business intelligence system, monitors the adoption, effectiveness, and performance of the Talent Management Suite
  • iContent, a content management system and Content-as-a-Service solution, manages the testing, validation, deployment and security for all online content

These enterprise-class applications can be deployed independently or together as an integrated multi-tenant SaaS solution.
