An enterprise LMS serves for the administration and delivery of corporate training to employees to build professional knowledge and skills, maintain certifications, and comply with government and state regulations. The system is also used for educating non-employees (e.g., partners, sales representatives, customers) on an enterprise’s products and services.

    • Meet the specific learning needs of your diverse learner groups, for example:
      • Adjusting training to different learning styles (e.g., blended learning for employees and microtraining for customers).
      • Creating personalized eLearning scenarios for training specific practical skills (e.g., repairing manufacturing equipment, communication with customers, using or promoting your goods).
