Corporate Training Providers have unique requirements as they consider the selection of a learning management system (LMS) to serve as the core technology for their business. Unlike end-users, training providers are best served by an LMS platform that will allow them to train multiple audiences simultaneously. Ideally, each audience will have its own dedicated instance of the application that can be customized to the unique needs of that client and their training program.
Multi-Tenant LMS Architecture for Corporate Training Providers
In the past, the only option in LMS technology was a single-tenant architecture, in which the entire platform infrastructure is dedicated to the support of a single training audience. But in recent years, several SaaS-based vendors have emerged, offering a multi-tenant architecture to allow the LMS administrator to launch and manage a dedicated learning environment for each of their training audiences.
With a multi-tenant LMS, training providers can launch individual branded instances of the application and customize each instance to include:
Unique branding elements
Relevant categories and courses
Customized learning paths
Isolated data and analytics
In addition, a multi-tenant LMS can streamline the administration of your system and programs as the architecture allows for the deployment of updates and enhancements to the platform across all of your customer training environments.
White Label LMS for Corporate Training Providers
Another relatively recent offering in LMS technology is in white label offerings. Under a white label arrangement, the LMS vendor allows the client to add their own branding to the technology. For corporate training providers, combining multi-tenant architecture with white labeling opportunities allows them to manage a branded instance of the application for each of their clients, simultaneously.
Some of the additional benefits corporate training providers can receive in this arrangement include:
Minimal Up-Front Investment
White labeling eliminates the need for a large, up-front spend to build the software and acquire the hardware and other supporting resources for the platform.
Fast Time-to-Market (TTM)
In addition to the large, up-front costs, building an LMS from scratch can take months (or even years) to complete. On the other hand, working with a white label LMS vendor allows you to get into the market immediately.
Eliminates the Need for Ongoing Management
In a white label arrangement, the LMS vendor also assumes the responsibility for the ongoing management and maintenance of the platform, allowing their corporate training providers to focus on their core business.
Ensures a State-of-the-Art Offering
In working with a white label LMS vendor, corporate training providers can be sure that they are providing their clients with the “latest and greatest” in LMS technology, without having to make continuous investments in research and development (R&D).
