  • With over 1,000 LMS vendors and therefore choice it will become stressful as you try to compare one with the other. Try to put this aside and measure objectively on features you need.
  • Ask the vendor for at least 3 client introductions and be sure to ask references about:   #1 Service issues  #2 Billing and costs   #3 Upgrades and new feature  #4 Support and training   #5 How long did it take for them to go-live and how easy is the platform to live with by all types of users – Admins, Department Managers, general users.
