What are the Benefits of an LMS for the Telecom Industry?

(STL.News) One of the most important benefits of an LMS is that it provides options to enroll employees for training and track their learning progress.  You can encourage your employees to share feedback, and you can use that feedback to create an efficient and effective training program on an LMS.

Learning Management System (LMS) is a software platform used to create, upload, distribute, and manage online learning and training material and automate record-keeping.  An LMS is used by almost every industry, small, medium, and large, from any sector.  Due to its flexibility and multiple features, it has been implemented in the telecom industry.

LMS will keep the employees motivated and engaged and will also help them reach their goals and obtain better results.  There are multiple LMS available in the market, with multiple vendors offering different deals and features.  Make sure you check the pricing options available for every LMS.  For instance, the Docebo pricing model begins with a free trial, and the starting price is based on active users.  Checking the pricing options will help you make a business-wise decision on the best software to use.

We have mentioned below some of the benefits of using an LMS for the telecom industry.

1) Customizable

LMS is fully customizable; you can customize the LMS based on your need and requirements and add and highlight your branding.  You can upload your company logo, images, icons, brand color, and themes and change the look and feel to match your company’s image.  Easy customization will also help you add value to your company portfolio.

2) Cost-Efficient

In the traditional instructor-led training sessions, a huge cost gets involved.  Travel costs, training room costs, printing training materials costs, accommodation costs, and several other charges are incurred in the traditional training setup.  But with LMS, the employees are not required to travel to attend the training; even the employees spread across different locations can attend the same training without traveling.  The employees can take up the training using their mobile devices, such as – smartphones, laptops, and tablets.  Since the training has become mobile, the engagement also increases with reduced cost and easy learning on the go.

3) Learning made Fun with Gamification

You can add gamification features and gamify the whole training session.  You can develop entertaining training modules where the employees can earn points badges, and see their names on the leaderboards, and also get course completion certificates.  By developing the gamified interface, you enable your employees to pursue telecommunications training and obtain the necessary compliance training, meeting the industry standards.  Your employees will grow professionally when they become masters in their field by getting the best training.

4) Scalable and Standardized Training

Traditional training methods have limitations in terms of scalability.  The scalability feature of an LMS can be used to train as many employees as you want at a time.  You can easily train 10 employees, 100 employees, to 1000 employees using an LMS.  LMS grows as your organization grows.  The training can be taken from anywhere using any mobile device and from any place at any time.  This means the same and consistent training can be provided to every employee using an LMS.  The standard of the training remains the same throughout.

5) Secured

Data security is the most important factor in any organization, and when it comes to the telecom industry, keeping the data secured is of utmost importance.  Thus, LMS ensures high security for your data.

6) Seamless Integration

LMS offers seamless integration with other software platforms.  LMS gets easily integrated with your current platforms, such as – Human Resource Management System (HRMS), Software to Monitor Call, and other platforms used by the telecom industry for smooth functioning.  LMS also provides employee data to analyze KPIs (Key Performance Indicators); the data is based on the individual progress of the employees.

LMS helps in delivering a better customer experience by keeping the employees updated on the regulations, trends, devices, and technologies of the telecom industry.  LMS also helps in reducing the burden on the admin and HR departments as everything has been automated.  LMS is easy to set up with the least amount of training and you will not have to hire a special instructor or technology expert to operate the same.
