For us, the selection process in trying to find training solution came down to a few things.
We reached out to our peers in the industry, we talked to some of our clients to figure out how they are training their employees. And then, of course, we reached out to all bunch of different training vendors, set up demos and meetings to figure out what are the capabilities of some of the systems and whether we are going to be able to do all the things we want to do in terms of creating our own training, tracking the training properly, grading our employees so we can understand exactly how well they did, where they stand and keeping a history of all of that training information.
And what we’ve found was that most LMS solutions had similar capabilities, some were more advanced in certain features than others. But what we’ve found with JoomlaLMS was that it is a totally flexible solution, very simple to set up and use, especially for somebody like me who has never managed or used an LMS solution on a back end. I’ve been a student in cases of using LMS applications but never the administrator so I needed something I could jump right into and start using right away.
The other thing that we had to look at, of course, was the price. In JoomlaLMS’s case price was, in most cases, far lower than a lot of the other vendors, so that played into our decision pretty heavily, especially after seeing all the features and benefits that JoomlaLMS had to offer.
