KnowledgeBase, the Dublin based eLearning start-up which recently launched a cutting edge online learning resource for busy professionals, has just announced details of a new partnership with leading business advisors Grant Thornton who will develop bespoke content for accountants across a range of topics.

Launched in March 2015, KnowledgeBase’s interactive eLearning resource provides busy professionals with detailed information on a range of important legal, regulatory and business subjects. KnowledgeBase’s first offering is an interactive, easy to use, online guide to the new Companies Act 2014, the largest piece of legislation enacted in the history of the state.

Speaking about the partnership with Grant Thornton, Maeve Harrington, Director of KnowledgeBase said “KnowledgeBase is delighted to announce details of our partnership with leading business advisors Grant Thornton. This partnership is an exciting development for accountants as they will now be able to access content on the KnowledgeBase platform which has been specifically developed by Grant Thornton for accountants.”

“KnowledgeBase’s eLearning platform which has been developed by leading web developers Cloudnine Consulting, has brought about an extremely powerful tool which functions both as a convenient guide to the new Companies Act and also an easy to use and convenient method of further education for busy professionals. By partnering with Grant Thornton, KnowledgeBase has been able to develop our product offering and crucially, take another step towards maximising the potential of the KnowledgeBase platform.” continued Maeve Harrington, Director of KnowledgeBase.

Jillian O’Sullivan, Partner in Grant Thornton said “Our partnership with KnowledgeBase is another example of how we are differentiating ourselves by providing clients with the most up to date content and methods of learning through the platform. We believe that KnowledgeBase’s comprehensive online resource will change the way accountants’ reference information and acquire training in relation to the Companies Act 2014.”
