Finding The Right LMS For Your Business

If you’re searching for a new learning management system (LMS) for your business, you may be familiar with software as a service, also known as SaaS or web-based software.

SaaS offers LMS cloud capability, meaning it provides multiple and simultaneous software sharing at a reduced cost. SaaS LMS applications are hosted over the internet rather than through separate hardware or software packages, to eliminate costs and save time.

LMS SaaS has grown immensely popular in recent years due to the myriad of benefits offered by such systems. Benefits of implementing a SaaS LMS include standardized web pages, as well as greater control over website design, maintenance, and development. Ultimately, learning management systems that involve SaaS seek to lower the total cost of ownership and provide a more direct avenue for support.

Questions To Consider When Searching For SaaS LMS

When considering a new learning management program that includes SaaS, it’s important to know what questions to ask to ensure that the needs of your business will be satisfied. The following outline will assist your search for an effective LMS SaaS program.

  1. How is the system implemented? LMS SaaS may involve a single-tenant or multi-tenant implementation. Single-tenant implementation is usually the quickest setup, so it can be helpful to look for providers offering this option.
  2. How is the system maintained? Single-tenant applications have separate code bases, meaning that they require more time to fix and can be expensive. Conversely, multi-tenant applications are applied to multiple consumers and are, therefore, upgraded and fixed automatically for all consumers.
  3. How is technical scalability managed? Network demand based on the total amount of users may vary among consumers. Fortunately, SaaS applications can be scalable when implemented properly. Scalability potential should be seriously considered when choosing a new LMS SaaS.
