Many Learning Management System companies allow you to easily “sign-up” and use their LMS, or even license their standard LMS on an annual basis, but very few actually allow you to “purchase” their Learning Management System. EZ LCMS, unlike many other Learning Management System providers in the industry, does just that. We offer a “complete purchase” option, where you can purchase your own copy of EZ LCMS for a one-time purchase price. [...]
You can purchase EZ LCMS for a single up-front price of $26,495.00, and never have to pay monthly per-user fees, installation charges, or annual licensing fees ever. The only optional ongoing costs associated with purchasing EZ LCMS is the annual hosting, maintenance and support fee of $1,495.00 per year, which allows you to host your purchased copy of EZ LCMS on our servers, keeps your copy of EZ LCMS up to date with all of the latest features and functions, and ensures world class technical support for your Learning Management System.
Owning your own Learning Management System has a number of advantages over using a licensed copy, or using an online SAAS account. Here are just a few:
Unlimited User Accounts
The biggest advantage of owning your own Learning Management System is the removal of user limitations. When you purchase your own copy of EZ LCMS for example, you can have an unlimited number of LMS users of any type. You may have the need to deliver training products to over 100,000 users, with thousands of managers and groups, instructors and even admins. With a purchased copy of EZ LCMS, there is no limit to the number and type of users you can create.
No more counting users and paying per-user fees. No more deleting users to make room in your account, and no more account overages or monthly charges. With a purchased copy of EZ LCMS, you will find that your account is completely unlimited, and free to use and manage however you see fit.
Not every organization is the same, and not everyone’s LMS needs are the same. You may find that an LMS like EZ LCMS fits your needs to some significant degree, but a couple of needed features are missing. In most Learning Management System situations, you would have to forgo those needs and settle for what is already available. But not with EZ LCMS. When you purchase your own copy of EZ LCMS, your LMS can be customized to fit your exact requirements.
EZ LCMS has programmers on staff who are dedicated to customizing our Learning Management System to meet your specific needs. During your analysis phase, we encourage you to contact our sales team and discuss any features or functions that you may need added or changed to satisfy your specific requirements. Our sales team can provide you with a custom purchase quote that will include the purchase of the Learning Management System with your own custom features in place.
Some of the custom features that we have implemented for our past clients include:
- Interface customization, including the addition or removal of certain buttons, tabs, features and functions.
- Custom data imports and exports for integration with non-standard data tracking systems and CRMs.
- A custom “Claims” role to integrate insurance claim management with the Learning Management System.
- A custom “audit tool” to integrate safety audits with training.
- A custom “Partner” role to facilitate the sales of training products through third party sales organizations.
- Custom tracking mechanisms for online and live training tracking.
- “Scaled Down” versions of the LMS, providing only the features and functions that a customer needs, hiding the rest.
If you have been looking for an LMS that has every feature you need, and have not found it, please feel free to contact us and discuss how we can customize EZ LCMS for you, to meet your entire set of requirements.
You may find yourself in a situation where you need not just one LMS account, but many. You may need to provide a Learning Management System to a number of completely separate entities or organizations. EZ LCMS is the only Learning Management Systems available (that we are aware of) that has the functionality to allow for multiple, separated Learning Management System instances within the same copy of the Learning Management System, and the same database.
For example, a franchise company may want to provide each of their Franchisees with a completely separate, segregated LMS account, where they can provide the company specific training products to their own employees, without the training records and access privileges of their employees comingling with those of other franchisees. With EZ LCMS, it’s a breeze. The “Master Admin” portal in EZ LCMS, provided to all purchasers, allows you to quickly and easily establish new, segregated instances of the Learning Management System with just a few clicks.
In addition to the ability to create more than one LMS account, you can also manage the training for all accounts from one source. You can create a simple “Content Repository” where you set up all of your training products, and then quickly and easily “License” that training out to all of your other organizations. Then, when you update the training in the “content repository” at a later point in time, all of the training in all of your LMS accounts will automatically be updated as well.
Believe it or not, all of these features, along with 5 free segregated LMS accounts are included FREE when you purchase EZ LCMS. If you need more than 5 separate LMS accounts, more can be added for a minimal additional fee.
Reselling the LMS
Tied closely to the ability to create multiple LMS instances, is the ability to resell the LMS. Many training providers are looking to beyond just providing a training course to their customers. Many are looking to provide a complete training delivery and tracking system to go along with their training products. The multiple instance capabilities of EZ LCMS give you a fast and easy way to give your customers a training delivery portal where their users can go to take the training they need, and to track their training implementation themselves.
Reselling the LMS along with your training products also provides you the ability to maintain control over your content. Instead of delivering zipped training courses to your customer, and losing control of where they end up and who ends up using them, you can simply provide your customer with an account in your copy of EZ LCMS, where you load your content, you manage it, and you can see exactly who is using it.
In many situations, it is far more economical to purchase EZ LCMS than to pay monthly per-user fees over time. Depending on the number of users you intend to deliver to, using any Learning Management System on a monthly hosted program can get very expensive. With EZ LCMS you can pay a simple up-front purchase price, and never have to pay monthly per-user fees again. The only ongoing charges for EZ LCMS is a modest annual hosting, maintenance and support fee, which ensures your copy of EZ LCMS stays up to date with all of the latest features and functions.
Many people who consider purchasing EZ LCMS fear the technical challenges that go with hosting an LMS, like the need to manage servers and engage IT staff in maintenance, but you don’t have to. When you purchase EZ LCMS, we will host your copy of EZ LCMS on our servers at your designated domain name (e.g. yourlms.com) for FREE for the first year. Additional years of hosting are also included in the annual $1,495.00 hosting, maintenance and support fee as well. So you can have the best of both worlds. You can own you own customizable, unlimited-user copy of EZ LCMS and not have to worry about installation, servers and maintenance.
EZ LCMS even offers custom no-interest financing. Our sales team can provide you with a custom financing quote that fits your needs and your budget, and allows you to get started immediately with your own copy of EZ LCMS, while you continue to make interest-free payments.
When looking for the right LMS solution for your organization, you may find that the large number of users you need, or the need to have specific features built to your requirement, prevent you from being able to “sign-up-and-go” with a standard LMS. At EZ LCMS, we understand the frustration this can cause, and we are ready to help you implement your own personalized, customized copy of our Learning Management System that perfectly meets your needs.
