Software Selection and Implementation
The Learning Management System (LMS) is an online application that enables any organization to plan, deliver and manage training with ease. An LMS is designed to capture and share the organizationâ€™s proprietary knowledge along with tracking and managing certifications. Supporting multiple languages, an LMS also supports 3rd party SCORM or AICC content and generates detailed reports.
Performance Management Systems provide comprehensive employee performance management tools, including automated performance reviews, SMART goals setting and alignment, competency assessments, and career development plans. Use Performance management Systems to ensure that employee performance translates into organizational performance.

|Testing Gurus & Final Report - Superior to prioritizing, comparing and contrasting hundreds of features and functions, UpSearch works with you to develop use case scripts that documents exactly what your organization needs from a LMS. We use the scripts as a rubric for evaluating learning platforms and include in final report.
|Demo Guides [Facilitate Scripted Vendor Demos] - In order to be certain a LMS performs as you need it to, UpSearch invites your vendor shortlist to demonstrate their solutions. We fashion your customized systems requirements list into a scripted demo and lead each vendor through the demonstration to ensure scripts are followed and fit your requirements. Along with your team, UpSearch grades and tallies results for final evaluation.

Based on your unique criteria, we compress the selection process by helping you spend time with the right LMS vendors.
