What is an LMS?

When tasked with finding a suitable LMS, often people don’t even know what an LMS is. Don’t worry. Most people have used an LMS at one point, some without even realizing it.  Here’s an explanation of what is a Learning Management System? And what does an LMS do? Some basic information: The definition of an LMS is “A learning management system (LMS for short) is a software application that is used to administer, track, report and deliver training". In simple terms, a Learning Management System or LMS, allows you to create, deliver and report on training courses and programs. That’s it boiled down to its most simple form. Similar to describing accounting software, as software that helps you do accounting. There’s much more detail involved, but that's a good start.  There are hundreds of LMSs to choose from. Each is different. This is why businesses find the process of selecting an LMS complicated.

LearnUpon and mytaxi:

The popular taxi booking app, Hailo, waved goodbye to commuters when it merged with Daimler subsidiary mytaxi, making it Europe’s largest taxi e-hailing company. In Ireland alone, 10k+ Hailo drivers needed to be prepped for the move and trained on the new app in time for mytaxi’s launch. To do this, Hailo turned to LearnUpon for a quick to set up, intuitive learning solution. Within 5 weeks they’d taken their new training program from inception to roll out, designing the content, building and testing the course, before successfully releasing the training to their 10k+ registered drivers. To support this high stakes app migration, mytaxi needed to train a large number of mobile users in a short amount of time. That’s when Hailo got in touch with LearnUpon. After discussing a strategy for driver training, they found that LearnUpon’s easy-to-use, quick to set up, and highly scalable solution was exactly what they needed. They could also be confident that a Customer Success Manager would be on hand to consult on their implementation plan, ensuring they could achieve their goals. The training needed to look great on mobile, so LearnUpon’s responsive design was a natural fit, as all courses automatically resize for mobile display. LearnUpon also made the training accessible anywhere, anytime for Hailo’s busy drivers. From their first orientation in LearnUpon it took their team just five weeks to design and build their app migration courses, to rolling the training out to drivers in Ireland. Flexible, scalable, and offering excellent success and support, LearnUpon were the perfect training partner for Hailo’s app migration; so when mytaxi launched, their drivers were prepped and ready to go!
