-- Users of Battle Command Training Program Now Have Easier

Access to Training and Army Specific Information Through

Single Sign-on Authentication --

mGen, Inc., a leading developer of advanced distributed knowledge, human capital and learning management systems, today announced it has integrated mGen Enterprise, its learning and knowledge management system used by the U.S. Army's Battle Command Training Program (BCTP), to the Army Knowledge Online (AKO) portal.

In an effort to increase and improve war-fighting preparedness, BCTP utilizes mGen Enterprise - mGen's knowledge, learning and collaboration solution - to train National Guard brigades in preparation for face-to-face training at Fort Leavenworth. AKO is the official portal for all Army personnel, providing Army news, a search engine, a chat room, customized personnel data and additional learning resources. By logging in once to the BCTP training system and the AKO portal, BCTP users avoid numerous log-ins and can better achieve their mission goals and objectives.

"At mGen, we are always looking for ways to make it easier for our customers to achieve their mission objectives," said Jack Battersby, president and CEO of mGen. "By creating a secure authentication between the mGen system, BCTP users and AKO, we are creating one less obstacle for users and IT administrators to jump over. We are happy to create a more streamlined approach that helps the Army communicate and collaborate more efficiently."
