3 Difficulty in learning the system is one of the top 5 LMS software challenges across all sizes of organizations. Especially for small organizations, lack of time, skill sets, and budget for training on the new software makes it important for them to choose a LMS that is easy to use and users can get started using it within no time. Elegant LMS design can help in engaging the learners with the course material. 1. User Friendliness

3 2. Flexible Payment Options Small and medium-size companies are generally pressed on budget and they don’t necessarily want to commit a huge investment right in the beginning. They need the flexibility of “Pay as you go” and options to upgrade or downgrade any time. LMS tools which require investment and commitment right in the beginning may not be the best options for them because they think before making any investment.

3 3. Easy Configuration LMS implementation budgets vary based on the size of the companies. While large organizations might be willing to spend a lot of time and money on the LMS implementation, smaller companies might need the LMS to be up and running within a very small budget, in no time. Small companies can’t afford to disrupt business operations while the LMS is being configured. Hence, it is important for small companies to pick the LMS that is easy to configure and setup.

3 4. Customizations No more compromises on the features and user interface despite low budgets. Small companies can now pick from options to customize the LMS as per their needs. Some features include flexibility to turn on/ turn off the features, change the time zones and date formats, and white label the tool as per the company branding, and to add new features which are required for the specific needs of the organization.

3 5. Ease Of Deployment Small and medium companies often don’t want to spend time and money on setting up the LMS infrastructure. They have neither the budgets nor the bandwidth. Also, the infrastructure management with upgrades, security, etc. will come at an additional cost. Hence, they have started exploring cloud-based LMS options which are offered as SaaS, giving them the flexibility to get started quickly.

Slide 9

3 6. Data Security SaaS offering does not mean lack of data security. With the rising popularity and adoption of the cloud, a lot of measures are being taken for data security on the cloud. All you need to do is just ensure that the vendor you select is sensitive about data security and has implemented measures such as separate databases for each customer and SSL encryptions.

3 7. Avoiding The Feature Overload The more features any product offers, the less happy we are while using it. Companies look for an LMS that offers features of their use and which they need. Hence, an LMS with regular features along with a few other important features is more preferred. Some additional features the LMS must offer include SCORM compliance, custom reporting, scheduling of reports, and eCommerce.

Slide 11

3 8. Support No matter how well-versed you are with software implementation, you are going to need a little support to get started with using the LMS. When you choose the LMS vendor, do check for the LMS documentation, knowledgebase, and availability of online tutorials. Availability of a 24 X 7 support will be an icing on the cake!
