Here we look at some of the top custom LMS providers and bespoke learning software development companies that help larger clients with complex projects, including integration of training systems with existing technologies.
Many large organisations find that off the shelf learning management systems simply can’t meet their needs or integrate effectively with their existing HR and business technology stack.
Sometimes (but not always), even the best LMS providers are great at creating and customising their software for a client’s needs, but fall short in terms of making it complement what is already in place at the business.
In such cases, some large, complex organisations need a business technology partner, sometimes with broader software development experience beyond just the field of L&D and HR.
This kind of bespoke software development company can be a long term business partner for its clients, future-proofing their IT and taking away much of the pain of keeping up with an ever-changing tech, compliance and training environment.
In no particular order, here are some of the leaders in this arena:
