Your learning management system (LMS) is essential for achieving key learning and development goals, adhering to legal and industry regulations, and maximizing productivity within your organization. Technology changes rapidly, though, and many companies are finding that they need to move on from their legacy systems in order to stay competitive.
Replacing outdated technology is an essential part of preparing your company for the growing demands of the digital age — and that also goes for your LMS. Explore reasons to change your LMS below.
Third-party integrations are essential to a seamless user experience, but many older LMS platforms are still incompatible with new technologies. Further, many don't plan to release updates that would enable those integrations.
You need every software program in your tech stack to seamlessly communicate to provide an engaging, streamlined user experience. If your existing LMS doesn't offer the integrations you need, it's time to start looking for a replacement.
In our current age of digital transformation, becoming a data-driven organization is more important than ever before. If you lack access to advanced analytics and reporting features, you lose the ability to measure learning success and identify obstacles, which can hinder your L&D initiatives moving forward.
A newer learning management system like ISOtrain offers report generation features that simplify interpretation and analysis for key stakeholders. These LMS features can also help your organization reduce labor costs by eliminating the need to hire additional data analysts.
Clunky, outdated technology distracts from course materials — and lack of user support can make your learners more likely to avoid completing their required training. Adopting a modern LMS with a streamlined, user-friendly interface is an excellent step toward providing a more engaging user experience. You'll also want to make sure your new solution has a reliable support team behind it so your users can get the help they need when they need it.
According to a recent report from Gitnux, the mobile learning market is set to reach $80.1 billion by 2027. It's easy to see why — business leaders who participated in the study reported that embracing mobile learning boosted business by 55% and that employee productivity improved by 43%.
An ideal mobile LMS should be compatible with a wide range of devices and operating systems to include everyone in your organization. For example, ISOtrain Mobile empowers learners by giving them remote access to course materials optimized for whatever device they prefer to use.
Older LMS solutions usually come with inflexible pricing models that get in the way of rapid growth. Often, you pay for a specific number of users when you first adopt your LMS — for every user added after that initial group, you get charged an additional fee.
If you're looking to grow your organization, you need a flexible system that allows you to scale without breaking your budget. Ask potential LMS vendors about their pricing strategy and consider how it translates to your company before making a decision. You should be able to grow your user base without worrying about running into surprise fees or other roadblocks.
Finding an LMS that can withstand the evolving demands of your workplace is vital when you're looking for a replacement system. That's doubly important for companies in highly regulated industries, where the compliance requirements are significantly more demanding.
