For these reasons, training managers are exploring already existing software operations, like SharePoint, in order to utilize them to their fullest potential. And what they’re finding is that companies are realizing the benefits of SharePoint with improved performance, centralized administration, customization, increased collaboration, consolidated sites, security and integrity and employee empowerment.
Here are a few more considerations when it comes to choosing an LMS with SharePoint integrations:
Human error is drastically reduced when training content stays within the same system where only the most up-to-date content is available and is easily accessible.
According to an article in Learning Solutions Magazine, it’s estimated that it takes on average between six months to a year to implement an LMS hosted on the premises, or three to nine months for SaaS solutions. Depending on your particular situation and needs, SharePoint can often shorten this time-intensive implementation because it is already integrated with your IT infrastructure and other management systems.
With over 600 LMS systems on the market, there is a training solution to fit every need. Those that are considering a SharePoint LMS hybrid will realize all the benefits that SharePoint provides – flexibility, scalability, improved productivity, integration with other systems, add-on capabilities and more – and all of this is available in your LMS solution. This is arguably the number one benefit to consider when choosing an LMS that is built on SharePoint.
