As the global corporate climate continues to increase in complexity, the demand for corporate training has grown accordingly. In today’s ever-changing and challenging working climate, companies of all sizes and from all industries are exploring strategies that will help ensure that their employees are onboarded quickly and seamlessly while also looking for ways to ensure that their workers have the knowledge and skills they need to add real value to the company’s mission and goals.
While corporate training can impact all aspects of the organization, some of the primary areas of interest include:
Employee orientation and onboarding
Knowledge sharing and skills development
Sales and customer service team training
Workplace culture and diversity
To help meet these growing training demands, businesses are looking to third-party eLearning development companies more than ever. But in order to deliver a complete offering, eLearning development organizations may need to provide the method of actual program delivery.
Learning Management Systems for Corporate Training
A learning management system, or “LMS” is the core technology for any type of eLearning program, including corporate training. An LMS is the application that supports the development, delivery, and tracking of eLearning-based corporate training programs and can serve as an essential piece of a comprehensive offering for eLearning corporate development companies. This is especially true for smaller clients who may not have their own LMS platform.
As an eLearning development company, you may choose to partner with an LMS provider in order to provide your clients with an option for the actual delivery of your corporate training program. In choosing an LMS provider with whom to partner, you will have a number of options available to you:
Cloud Based v On-Premises
While some third-party corporate training organizations choose to deploy their own on-premises LMS, this approach tends to require a large, up-front investment and can take many months to implement.
A cloud-based LMS offered by a third-party vendor can present a more affordable solution and allow you to scale your use of the system on a subscription basis. And with a cloud LMS, you can usually be up-and-running with the solution in minutes, as opposed to months.
Multi-Tenant v Single Tenant
Another option to consider is the use of a multi-tenant LMS architecture. Whereas a single tenant LMS allocates the entirety of the software and hardware for a single audience, a multi-tenant LMS allows you to launch new, customized eLearning environments (portals) on-demand. This approach can be ideal for eLearning-based corporate training organizations that need to dynamically allocate new portals as you sign-up new clients. It also allows for a secure and private training approach for your clients.
LMS Portals for eLearning-Based Corporate Training Development Companies
LMS Portals provides our clients and partners with a cloud-based, multi-tenant platform to support eLearning development and corporate training. Using LMS Portals, our corporate training and eLearning development partners are able to “spin up” new portals on-demand. And each portal you launch can be custom braded and offer its own user onboarding system, messaging and collaboration tools, analytics engine, and more.
