SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 14, 2003

Presenter, Inc., a leading developer of Web-based presentation software for e-learning and time-critical corporate communications, today announced that Royal Alliance Associates, a subsidiary of AIG Advisory Group and one of the largest securities broker-dealers in the United States, has licensed its iPresentation Suite to provide training and support to its team of over 3,000 brokers nationwide.

Compliance training has recently become more stringent due to increased supervision by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), a result of recent economic changes including deep declines in the stock market and corporate improprieties. Royal Alliance decided to be among the first financial services companies to seek out a Web-based solution that will not only satisfy SEC regulations by enabling instant communication with a remote workforce, but is also more cost-effective and efficient than face-to-face training.

Royal Alliance will use Presenter’s iPresentation Suite to quickly and easily create and distribute high-impact, multimedia training presentations to the field. With this system, they can deliver a consistent message to their large, geographically dispersed audience in minutes via the Web, both live and on demand. The presentations are accessible 24 hours a day so busy brokers can complete training when it fits their schedule.

“We were looking for an economic game changer and we found iPresentation Suite to be the best solution for strengthening our compliance training at a time of far greater scrutiny by the government and self regulating bodies. Our payback period was a mere three months and the customer service has been superb,” said John McGovern, Chief Compliance Officer at Royal Alliance Associates. “Now, we have a leg up on the competition because our brokers are more knowledgeable. We are able to increase the value delivered to our customers while improving our own bottom line,” continued McGovern.

“Consistent communication has never been more crucial in the financial services industry,” said Eric Chen, CEO of Presenter Inc. “By using Presenter’s iPresentation Suite to create, manage and deliver training presentations via the Web, Royal Alliance will be able to retain their outstanding reputation for providing its broker-dealers with the best possible resources to serve their customer’s financial needs.”
