    Why Your Company Should Adopt A LMS

Top 5 Reasons Your Enterprise Business Should Be Using A Learning Management System

Implementing a good Learning Management System (LMS) means that you can save both time and money, while still completing the training you and your team need. It is a simple process and can be reused to train new hires (reducing on-boarding times, as well as setting new employees up for success).

  • THE COST OF HR MANAGERS — It usually isn't cost effective for small businesses to have an HR manager on-hand to manage staff services and training. Implementing a Learning Management System takes care of the training for you. After setting up some learning paths relevant to your industry and having access to a course marketplace, your LMS will take care of all your training needs. You can establish your business and training costs won't break the bank.

  • OUTSOURCING TRAINING — Sending staff to external training can have a very negative effect on both the impact and budget of your program. Starting with impact, you are already restricted in what you can offer your employees due to programs available in your area. This results in "settling" on programs rather than actually getting the training that is relevant and going to engage your team. Outsourcing your training often results in employees leaving the workplace to take part in programs. This can be a timely process, and as the saying goes, "time is money."


  • SMALL BUSINESSES THAT STILL WANT PERSONALIZED TRAINING — Rather than build complete programs from scratch, you can now use a LMS to take an existing course from a course marketplace and customize it to be relevant to your company, or build a learning pathway containing a series of courses from the marketplace that cover a range of skills needed for a particular role.

  • KEEPING UP WITH COMPLIANCE — If you are using a good Learning Management System, you will have access to an extensive catalog that contains a range of courses from accredited training providers that can be enrolled in at the click of a button. Not only do you have access to these courses, you will always have access to the most current course updates.

Top 5 Ways To Get The Most Value For Your Employees From A LMS

According to a study by MIT Sloan Management Review, the majority of managers agree that digital transformation is critical to their organizations. However, 63% reported that technological change isn't happening fast enough in their workplaces. Fortunately, there are techniques that will speed up the process of technology adoption among your team members!

  • Involve Your People In Tech Acquisition — Gather information from your team members about what their needs are and what challenges they have with their current technology.

  • Choose Approachable Products — Find products that are intuitive and user friendly.

  • Sell The Benefits To Your Team — How will adopting a new Learning Management System make their jobs simpler? How does this technology enhance their individual lives?

  • Make Technology Adoption Fun — Learn what motivates each member of your staff and use that knowledge to develop incentives. Consider creating a rewards program or embracing gamification with team competitions.

  • Share Success Stories — Highlight your team's quick wins. "Steven reached his sales call quota by 2:30 every day this week thanks to our new sales software!"

Top 4 Reasons You Should Use Mobile Learning

First impressions always count. We all know it. Organizations that do not have a structured on-boarding process often find their employees walk away from these sessions feeling stressed and confused. We have a clear solution to that: to develop a structured and integrated onboarding program that increases employee engagement and helps them be more productive, faster. This is where Mobile Learning comes in!

  • Learning Designed For Millenial Workforce — Gather information from your team members about what their needs are and what challenges they have with their current technology.

  • Bite-Sized Content Helps In Greater Retention Of Knowledge — Most on-boarding programs tend to cram in a lot of extraneous information. Mobile learning allows you to break information down into more easily absorbed and retained pieces.

  • Designed To Work Within A Short Time Frame — Mobile learning programs are bite-sized, making it easier to retain knowledge, and can be accessed easily at times of need — learning can immediately be put into use!

  • Personalized Learning Increases Employee Engagement — Mobile learning offers a personal connection, enabling learners to learn at their own pace. A new employee can always do a quick Google search for something they are unfamiliar with or watch videos when they get stuck in some process.

A structured on-boarding program takes time and effort, but is worth the investment. Aberdeen Group, in one of their benchmark reports, stated "organizations with standard on-boarding process experienced 54% more new hire productivity, 50% greater retention among new hires, twice the level of new hire engagement."

  • 97% of employees claimed that a tablet adoption policy increased their learning effectiveness. Having tablets in addition to laptops allows a new and exciting platform for people to learn on, both in the office and at home.

  • 4.6 million college students are taking at least one of their courses online, so LMS are familiar territory.
