Expert Knowledge

The benefits of using managed learning services

Time and resource savings

Administering a successful training programme takes a significant amount of time. Usually, an entire administration team is required to develop content, manage and administer the learning platform, support users, control resources and other associated activities.

By working with a managed learning service provider, these activities are taken care of without requiring additional internal resources, a time-consuming recruitment process or managing internal personnel.

Controlled costs

When administered and managed in-house, it’s easy for time issues to be experienced. Either through too much time being spent on unknown tasks or employees needing to take on additional tasks. Costs can spiral out of control.

A managed learning service provider will meet budget requirements while delivering a high-quality, highly efficient, value-driven training programme.

Expertise on demand

Delivering a successful training programme that meets its objectives and aids revenue growth needs careful, expert management from experienced professionals.

Partnering with a managed learning service provider grants you access to a deep roster of professionals with expertise in every area of training delivery. It is a simple but effective way of growing your knowledge and skill base without having to add to your fixed costs.

Full support

Users and learners alike need varying levels of support. Without it, you run the risk of damaging confidence in your brand and a network of unengaged learners.

Whether designing hierarchies, developing learner pathways or even password reminders and tech support, managed learning services ensure that every party receives the correct level of localised support, wherever they are based.

Team accountability

It’s easy for priorities to drift when dealing with training programme delivery in-house. New tasks arise, different objectives require focus and more often than not, training programmes take a hit.

Working collaboratively with experts will keep your team accountable. Suggestions based on our knowledge, combined with regular feedback, ensures improvements are completed and your programme stays on track.

Easily scalable

When sales networks grow and global reach is secured, challenges with delivering timely and localised training can arise. Often, there is limited scope to scale a training programme to larger, global audiences.

Key to delivering a successful training programme to a growing channel, a managed learning service provider will offer the ability to scale quickly and easily. Reaching new markets and delivering global training can be achieved smoothly and at speed.

Your questions answered

Whether you’re ready to work with us or you’re just exploring and comparing your options, these FAQs are designed to help answer the questions we are asked most often.

Managed learning services facilitate the whole training process for many companies and organisations. Not every company has the capacity to deliver training programmes without compromising other aspects of their business.

Outsourced LMS operation frees internal staff from undertaking simple but time-consuming administrative tasks. Key metrics are tracked automatically and presented as insightful reports, which can be scheduled for submission as required. Support is also always available to address any issue, ensuring training continuity 24/7.

In addition, LMS hosting is completely off-site in secure data centres, so companies with dedicated IT departments can focus on vital in-house systems whilst those without an IT team will benefit from a virtual training solution.

Managed learning services streamline your training delivery and bolster every facet of your business’ training programme.

Our managed services lend themselves to businesses without a learning and development team, and those who will be providing training to external audiences such as channel partners, customers or distributors.

There are many benefits to using our fully-managed service, however we can create bespoke service levels depending on your organisation’s requirements.

Managed learning services are designed to reduce the time, budget and resource requirements needed to deliver effective, professional online training programmes.

Yes. The WahooLMS has integral eCommerce functionality without additional or external online shopping pages. Your customers can buy training in a couple of clicks and instantly have the courses appear on their dashboard.

Our managed learning services ensure shop management, payment support, dispute management, fund handling and financial reporting are all handled by our expert team, offering you the confidence and means to grow your programme.

Yes. From small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) to multinational and global organisations, we currently deliver training to over 100,000 users globally in 190 countries. We offer fully scalable cost-per-user solutions that grow and flex with your operational requirements.

While a huge part of training relies on the quality of your courses, you will need technical and administrative support once you start running your programme – unless you already have the in-house expertise and resources to make it happen. By not administering, managing and supporting the programme effectively, you will likely experience low levels of engagement and poor useability, leading to the overall training programme failing.

The more learners you have participating in your courses, the higher the administrative burden and the more customer support tickets you need to solve. Unless you have a dedicated team, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to offer the right level of service to your customers.

With our help, your team can focus on strategy and execution while we take the time-consuming tasks of administration and support issues off your plate.

Learner support services provide individual support to learners to help address any issues that hinder their training completion. This is especially important in distance learning situations where it is harder to see if a learner is struggling and if additional support is needed.

Outsourcing vs In-House – Which is Best for Delivering Your Training Programme?

In the early stages of training programme development, planning how you intend to support, maintain and manage it is the key to its success. For this, there are generally two options: outsourcing to a specialist or keeping it under one roof in-house. However, deciding how to move forward isn’t clear cut. Many factors can impact the decision. We are not about to tell you to outsource to us. It’s about us helping you explore your options and make the right choice for your requirements.

What is Training Programme Management?

Caterpillar’s historic comeback was nearly three decades ago, but the principles behind its success still hold true. Given proper support, your external sales network is the key to new markets, the upholder of your brand’s integrity, and your partners in securing loyalty. But in order to become all of these things, businesses need to provide adequate support and training.

Online Channel Training Programmes – What’s True and What’s Not

When working on a new training programme, the onus tends to be on content and delivery. The general consensus is usually “we don’t need to outsource any of it”, “we didn’t know we could outsource it” or “this or that team can easily fit that in”. Of course, we know otherwise and we want to share that knowledge with you.
