HONG KONG -- (Marketwired) -- 02/12/14 --

OTCQX: NETDY


12 February 2014

                     NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited
                    ("NetDimensions" or the "Company")

   NetDimensions partners with LINGOs to deliver Last Mile Learning

   NetDimensions and LINGOs innovate with next generation learning
                               technology
  for international humanitarian relief and development organisations

NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of
performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, announced
today that it has donated NetDimensions Learning to LINGOs, a global
non-profit consortium of leading humanitarian relief and development
organisations, to deliver a wide range of professional development
experiences to the staff of LINGOs' member organisations and others
working to improve lives in the developing world.

NetDimensions and LINGOs have built an innovative learning offering
that is based on NetDimensions Learning, the award-winning Learning
Management System available as Secure SaaS, that can serve multiple
LINGOs member organisations via highly personalised and distributed
learning portals. The portals are developed on the popular WordPress
blogging and content management system and utilise BuddyPress, a
WordPress plugin that provides social networking functionality.

With the WordPress front-end, LINGOs can cost-effectively provide
learning portals to each member organisation that meet the unique
requirements of their headquarters and country offices wherever they
are in the world. These portals integrate with NetDimensions Learning
via the NetDimensions Software Development Kit ("NetDimensions SDK")
that provides single sign-on authentication and specific APIs and
widgets for WordPress."We view this new offering as the next generation
learning technology
for our members," said Eric Berg, President and CEO of LINGOs. "It
allows us to move beyond simply providing traditional learning
management functionality so we can now bring community and social
aspects to the online learning experience. NetDimensions has been the
only company that was able to provide the right product to enable us to
build this distributed offering that delivers capacity to staff in the
field as they need it."

LINGOs' Last Mile Learning provides free, contextualised learning
resources to professionals working in the development and relief
sectors. The learning resources are accessible in multiple formats and
are designed to serve the needs of individual learners, trainers and
organisations."We are proud to become a LINGOs partner and to contribute
with our
technology in helping to address many of the fundamental challenges
faced by society today," explained Alex Poulos, Chief Marketing Officer
of NetDimensions. "There is no question that learning can be
transformational to communities all over the world and can help better
people's lives with technology playing a key part in that."

LINGOs will begin making this new learning offering available in the
next month and will be able to highlight the technology together with
NetDimensions at ASTD 2014 International Conference and Exhibition in
Washington, DC on May 4-7. LINGOs members include Non-Government
Organisations (NGOs) such as Save The Children, World Relief, Action
Aid, CARE, Habitat for Humanity, The Nature Conservancy, Samaritan's
Purse, WWF, and others."This is an extremely elegant and powerful
architecture to address some
unique requirements faced by NGOs and to deliver personalised and
collaborative learning at the point of need," added Poulos."NetDimensions
has always been true to its mission to make learning,
performance support and knowledge sharing more accessible to global
organisations," said Jay Shaw, CEO and founder of NetDimensions. "We
are honored to be able to try to do the same for non-profit
organisations that have to serve their efforts under very difficult
conditions. As a company looking for ways to give back to society,
NetDimensions is fully committed to building our relationship with
LINGOs and to helping provide a learning technology that has an impact
on the world."
