Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), the world's leading provider of language-learning solutions, today announced that it has expanded its portfolio with the introduction of Rosetta Stone® Advanced English for Business. Leveraging more than 20 years of experience at the forefront of the education technology industry, Rosetta Stone's comprehensive new language solution was designed in collaboration with leading companies specifically to meet the needs of global business professionals.

"Most English language products on the market repurpose content and take a 'one size fits all' approach to teaching and learning that simply does not translate to the workplace," said Judy Verses, President of Global Enterprise & Education at Rosetta Stone. "Advanced English for Business features all-new content that's been specifically designed to develop communication skills used in everyday business settings. By combining a brand new, business-focused curriculum with world-class speech-recognition technology and live, one-on-one online sessions delivered through qualified, native English-speaking tutors, we've created one of the best business English solutions available today."

Featuring several market-leading innovations, Rosetta Stone Advanced English for Business offers a comprehensive and effective language-learning curriculum for companies operating in today's increasingly global economy. Rosetta Stone's proprietary speech-recognition technology-long a competitive advantage of the company's core language-learning solutions-is here utilized as never before. Optimized to track and correct not just words and phrases, but full paragraphs of spoken content, the speech engine provides accurate and ongoing learner feedback that can be put immediately into practice. The product's unique 'Reading Aloud' component provides learners with individualized feedback on pronunciation, pausing, and phrasing to give them confidence to speak in nearly any business setting. And live, one-on-one coaching sessions-delivered by qualified, native-speaking tutors-further augment the learning process to drive fast, effective language acquisition.

Rosetta Stone plans to expand on this remarkable next-generation business English solution by developing specialized content for specific industries-such as telecom, medical and manufacturing-while continuously working to improve the learner experience and enhance the overall effectiveness of the program.
The launch of Rosetta Stone Advanced English for Business-taken alongside the company's recent acquisition of Tell Me More, one of Europe's top intermediate and advanced language technology providers-further solidifies Rosetta Stone's position as the world's leading language solution for learners at every stage of acquisition.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
