Itransition’s LMS services

Itransition’s LMS services
With deep expertise in EdTech and eLearning software development, we help you streamline the LMS implementation journey and address common adoption challenges. This includes defining project budget and roadmap, choosing a suitable tech stack and deployment model, and selecting the software feature set.
Following the Agile and DevOps principles while leveraging an optimal tech stack, our team conceptualizes and builds custom LMS solutions from the ground up, taking care of software specifications, wireframes and mockups, PoC delivery, UX/UI design, front-end and back-end development, and integrations.
For organizations prioritizing faster time to market and lower development costs, Itransition provides customization and configuration services to adapt the functionality, user interface, and other aspects of an existing eLearning platform (Moodle, Chamilo, Totara, eFront, etc.) to specific educational goals and scenarios.
We ensure custom LMS quality, reliability, and compliance with the software requirements specification and industry standards via end-to-end testing performed both manually and through test automation applications. This typically involves functional, performance, usability, compatibility, and cyber security tests.
Itransition’s team performs adaptive, perfective, corrective, and preventive maintenance, adjusting your LMS to an evolving software environment. We address performance issues, bugs, or glitches that may affect the software operation and UX, and fine-tune your solution to fix latent faults and extend its life.

To keep up with new tech trends and changing business needs or address performance issues and growing maintenance costs without adopting a new LMS, we can revamp your existing system via application migration to the cloud, add new intuitive features, or replace its monolithic architecture with a microservices one.
