For Skills Ltd Experiences 50% Annual Growth as Reputation for Reliability and Excellence Grows

READING, England, April 5, 2011 - Cloud and Managed Hosting expert, DediPower, provides the reliable
hosting platform used by For Skills Limited to deliver innovative web-based
learning resources to schools, colleges and private companies wishing to
implement and manage online learning.

Designing and supplying assessment, monitoring and management software
and tools, ForSkills has a growing reputation for learning excellence working
with award winning educational facilities.

DediPower provides ForSkills with the resilient server infrastructure,
flexible systems architecture and dedicated management and support it needs
to deliver its 'always on' learning platforms 24/7.

ForSkills Commercial Director, Carl Gibson comments, "Educationalists,
with real experience at the 'chalk face', our team at ForSkills uses their
understanding and knowledge of the market, to design solutions that are
flexible and customisable. We understand that trust and reliability is
crucial for all those involved. For this reason, we chose DediPower, a
no-compromise, proven hosting partner that provides optimised high
performance solutions that never let us down. Consequently, we now have a
strong track record for excellence and reliability - which has definitely
contributed to our 50% annual growth and continued commercial success."

With more educational establishments switching on to the teaching,
administrative and collaborative benefits associated with modern e-learning
methods, ForSkills is seeing huge demand for its Entry Level 1- Level 3
online assessment and skills suite that covers the core subjects - English,

that we have the capacity to accommodate large volumes of users - which can
regularly reach many thousands at a time. They can also ramp up capacity
quickly to accommodate the massive surges that occur particularly during
traditional assessment periods."

Chris Miller, CEO of DediPower, states, "E-learning is now a prerequisite
for modern teaching environments. As well as improving provision and to help
public funding go further, ForSkills also enables private organisations to
manage and distribute skills information and resources more efficiently. We
are delighted that DediPower's 'passion for support ' is actively helping
