Are you in confusion whether to set up a Learning management system for your company or not? But you can definitely take the plunge if you notice the following tell-tale signs in your organization:
- Missing documents
In most of the organizations, it is tough to maintain a tracking of all documents for smooth running of the business. You might be storing information on individual computers or physical documents at employee’s desks. The worst scenario is when you cannot access information when you need it urgently.
So, you need a central storage point of information where vital data and documents can be stored. A Learning Management System (LMS) can provide this exact knowledge how data and documents can be stored in efficient manner so that information should be just a few clicks away. Details of instructor led classroom training may also be stored.
- Loss of customer details
The worst nightmare for employees’ particularly sales staff is loss of customer details. Jotting down phone numbers on sticky notes may be useful but what if they go missing? A LMS can provide training your sales team to enter crucial customer details online and save such data securely without worrying about misplacing them.
- Hard to keep e-mail schedules
A training company often sends hundreds of e-mails per week. E-mails are sent for many reasons like scheduling of classes or training sessions. It may take lot of time when you have to copy and paste both content and e-mail addresses. But a LMS can be helpful for employees to set up communication triggers, which are automated and which will deal with most of your e-mail work.
- Delay in compiling reports
In the case, you need to compile reports on a regular basis; you realize the vast amount of time it takes. You are required to collect all relevant information, compile it for making a report and send it to theconcerned person. You may have to repeat this process whenever you need an updated version of a report.
By using LMS, reporting system can be developed or improved (if there exists any) to compile specific reports and save time.LMS can guide your staff how to store all details in the report and send a new one, whenever required.
- Difficulty in training in on-boarding of staff
In case, you are using customized system in your business, new employees may find it tough and confusing when they join the team. You may waste much time on providing them on-boarding training using several systems. So, move on to LMS, where fresh employees may benefit from one set of training, which may contain single set of instructor led online courses.
These are some signs which indicate that you need LMS for your company.
