Let’s Clarify, What is LMS Software?

What is LMS Software?

What is LMS Software? Learning management system (LMS) software is a cloud-based content-publishing platform for administering, documenting, tracking, and reporting e-learning education courses or training programs. Typically, LMS software affords businesses an efficient way to create and deliver company content and online education courses for their employees, monitor employee participation, and assess employee performance.

LMS software can provide:

  • delivery and tracking of multimedia e-learning courses and content
  • learning and testing
  • certification
  • usage and performance reporting

Why Utilize an LMS?

An LMS allows businesses to save on administrative and paperwork costs by managing all their employee training materials in a central online database. Thus, education and training content is no longer stored in filing cabinets or bookshelves, or in stacks of DVDs, CDs and other antiquated forms of media. Instead, company content can be stored safely and inexpensively utilizing an LMS.

What is White Label LMS software?

A learning management system is “white-labeled” when it has been custom-designed with unique content (company logos, font, etc.) to integrate with an organization’s branding.

Why Develop a White Label LMS?

LMS programs have evolved over recent years due to the expectations of consumers. Today, it isn’t enough to offer a company “just another piece of software” – the best businesses expect total learning solutions.

Software Advice recently conducted research on employee training programs, which involved 2 separate surveys: one of prospective buyers and one of human resource (HR) professionals. According to their research, companies are seeking greater efficiency over their current training programs by utilizing an LMS (learning management system).

The research findings revealed:

  • 80 percent of employers are considering using LMS software for the first time.
  • 59 percent of those sampled still rely on antiquated manual methods, such as paper documents, in-person trainings (classroom instructor) and general-purpose software (Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) to administer and track employee training.
  • Some employers have HR software in place, but they do not use the software for employee training. For example, one employer in the group mentioned using a human resources information system (HRIS) for general HR purposes, but still manually tracked instructor-led trainings.
  • Only 20 percent of employers currently use commercial LMS software.

Is LMS Software for Big Business Only?

While it is true that large companies reap significant rewards from using an LMS, according to the research, smaller companies can benefit, too. 63 percent of current LMS users work for companies with 500 or less employees, with the largest percentage of respondents (20 percent) from businesses with 51 to 100 employees.

The research findings demonstrate that a staggering 99% of employers who currently use an LMS for online employee training believe that their LMS positively impacts training efficiency, job performance, employee retention or engagement.

“For potential buyers, this suggests that the purchase of an LMS solution has the potential to be a worthwhile investment that yields similarly positive results. Top benefits of LMS software include more organized and consistent delivery of training material, which can lead to improved job performance, better retention of data and increased employee engagement.” – Software Advice

What about your company?

Are you still relying on non-technological means or basic software to create content, administer training and track results? If you are, ask the following questions:

  • How efficiently are your managers tracking employee training?
  • Are your employees satisfied with the training they receive?
  • Do your employees feel empowered to do their job well?
  • What is your turnover rate?
  • What is your cost of recruitment?
  • What is the cost of your current training program?

“Quantifying the return on investment in employee training can be a difficult task, but advanced metrics from LMS platforms on course completion, information retention and effect on job performance give users better insight into how effective their training programs really are. Once companies implement effective employee training, the benefits to engagement and the bottom line will likely follow.” – Software Advice
