How Can You Use LMS?

Here are some cases when using a learning management system is a good idea:

1. Onboarding

With LMS, you can automate employee onboarding. All you have to do is create a training program once and then pass it on to all the newcomers.

2. Compliance Training

An LMS can help you keep employees up to date with compliance regulations. With the learning platform, updating training schedules is easy – you can add new compliance standards to your online course in a matter of minutes.

3. Product Knowledge Training

With LMS, you can educate salespeople and other professionals about your company’s products or services. The system allows you to provide periodic product training and distribute refreshers on the back catalog, right after new products are released.

4. Sales Training

A learning management system can help teach you how to sell better to sales reps in different offices and geographic locations. You can develop their sales and communication skills with the help of dialogue simulation and SCORM courses, and assess their knowledge with online tests.

5. Channel Partner Training

An LMS allows you to train thousands of partners around the world using a single program. You can easily educate your channel partners on how to best market, sell and support your products.

6. Knowledge Base

All learning material is stored in one place. Even if employees do not take any courses, they can easily find the information they need upon request. This is especially convenient for companies that need to provide training for salespeople on a wide range of products.

How to choose an LMS

If you search online for “lms,” you’ll find millions of results, many of which will be various vendors promoting their products. It is not that easy to choose the best one for your business when the options abound. Therefore, we have created a 5-step guide on how to choose an LMS that can help you.

1. Identify Your Training Needs

“What do I want to gain from training?” Set your e-learning goals and objectives by answering the question. Then know the profiles of your learners: the number of people, their age, professional level, how well they use technology, and more. After that, you’ll know exactly what you need to create effective e-learning.

2. Define Your LMS Requirements

First, you need to understand what options you want for your learning management system. How do you want your learners to be registered in the system: yourself or through an administrator? Do you need simplification in your e-learning? Do you want your training programs to be completely online, or would you prefer blended learning?

Answer this and other questions, and then determine the technical requirements of your future LMS. Are you looking for a cloud-based or hosted solution? Would you like to integrate your LMS with other systems? And so on.


Finally, determine the cost range that is appropriate for your company. Remember that the more complete your list of needs, the easier it will be to find the best match for you.

3. Explore the Market

Instead of hundreds of options, you’ve now narrowed down your list of vendors to a few dozen. Ask your friends and coworkers if they’ve used some of them, how they like them, etc. Read reviews of these products on websites like G2Crowd, or Capterra. Try to limit your list to 10-15 options.

4. Evaluate Vendors

To go down a list of the 3-5 best LMS for your company, delve a little deeper. Browse vendors’ websites, test their LMS, and ask for a demonstration of the use case.

5. Choose an LMS

At this point, you only have a few options to choose from. But this does not mean that the last option will be easy. Sometimes, you will need to provide vendors with information about your e-learning needs and compare their suggested solutions in order to choose the best LMS for your business.
