If the benefits of cloud-hosted LMS solutions vs in-house instances weren’t clear, here’s another success story to prove the point. Continuum Managed Services is one global company on the list of many - like Mercedes Benz, TOMS Shoes, YMCA and WIND Mobile - who are gravitating towards cloud hosted online training platforms.
Jennifer Roadman, Continuum Partner Education Manager, knew she wanted to stick with Moodle. Happy with her learning management platform, she sought out an e-learning company with the expertise to not only host Continuum's LMS, but also one which could meet all of their needs for scale and performance capabilities.
Continuum selected Lambda Solutions as their hosting provider because of all that, and more - Continuum wanted a provider that would know Moodle inside and out, with the expertise and experience to support enterprise implementations.
The move from an in-house instance of Moodle to one hosted in the cloud was all about Continuum Managed Services seamlessly scaling their LMS platform to their rapidly growing number of users. The increase in users was posing a great challenge to them with their self-hosted instance; supporting the existing user base required an inordinate amount of staff resources, and Roadman knew that more users and more courses meant more cost to Continuum.
Lambda's role? To be the LMS expert and relieve Roadman's staff of the burden to field support and IT requests.
Continuum was able save a significant amount of time, and improve their system performance and experience.
Continuum found out what many companies are realizing - cloud-hosted training programs are investments in both employees, and operational capacity, which in turn strengthens and validates every employee's value - for themselves, and to the company. When employee skills are enhanced and time freed up to leverage these skills, performance and outcomes grow - again, for the employee, and the organization.
Organizations like Continuum understand the benefits, and have reaped their rewards, of cloud-based learning management systems.
