Enterprise LMS selection guide

Enterprise LMS selection guide

Organizations can develop a custom LMS from the ground up or adopt an off-the-shelf solution and customize it.

Suitable for large companies with established workflows that need an LMS tailored to their specific training needs. Custom LMS software will include a bespoke set of modules, features, and integrations while ensuring full ownership and control over the solution. On the other hand, you can expect higher upfront costs with potential development budget overruns and slower implementation.

  • Platform-based LMS

Suitable for companies requiring faster and cheaper LMS adoption, since the subscription, configuration, and customization of a platform-based solution is usually less demanding than building software from scratch. However, the TCO can be higher because the license fees can increase as your business and LMS user base expands.

If you opt for an off-the-shelf enterprise LMS, keep in mind the following factors to narrow down your list of potential candidates:

Prioritize products with a set of modules and features close to your ideal functional scope. Filling gaps later via customizations can be expensive or impossible due to the platform’s limitations.

  • Ease of use

Rely on peer review platforms and free trials to gauge product usability, including an intuitive interface and ease of configuration for different roles and permissions.

  • Pricing & conditions

Request detailed quotes and compare pricing models (per learner, per active user, etc.). Carefully review contract clauses that can lead to unexpected licensing costs for premium services or impose vendor lock-ins.

  • Compliance

Make sure to choose an LMS complying with major eLearning standards like SCORM and data management regulations applicable to your industry.
