- A luxury automaker needed a learning portal website that encompassed all forms of retail training, non-technical and technical, web-based and classroom. Essential to this goal was the need for an LMS architecture that would motivate learners of varying backgrounds and education levels, employed by hundreds of diverse independently franchised stores.
- A major auction website needed to train tens of millions of independent learners to use their increasingly powerful selling platform. Conventional LMS systems designed for corporate HR use were out of the question: far too expensive on a cost-per-learner basis, they also imposed a learning structure far too rigid for this audience.
Imagine a learning management system designed to make learning fun: with a Facebook-like environment, fast-paced courses, social media tools that allow learners to benefit from one another’s experience, and motivational approaches that use contests, games, and peer esteem to keep learners interested. That’s RetaiLMS, the Learning Management System and Education Portal for retail, franchise, and non-corporate learners.
RetailMS is the first LMS purpose-designed specifically for use by learners of varying education levels, in non-corporate environments. Its approach is it’s optimized for retail store employees, franchise workers, far-flung contract sales forces, or affiliates and end-users of your business’ products or services.
Refined over a decade of use by one of the world’s leading import automakers and one of the world’s best known auction sites, RetaiLMS benefits from an appealing group of features that help learners enjoy learning, as well multi-level administrative control, easy content creation, unified management of both classroom and web-based training, detailed reporting, and a great deal more.
Key Features Include:
- A fresh conceptual design that some users have said is like “Facebook and a news website merged with an LMS”. RetaiLMS places the emphasis on fun, easy learning in bite-size chunks
- Courses and Mastery Testing that use a contest and peer-esteem format to assure ongoing, voluntary involvement in learning.
- Extensive use of social media to broaden learning paths. Learners can work in groups to learn from one another.
- Comprehensive reporting tools that go far beyond the normal one-level-of-manager model. RetailLMS permits an unlimited number of configurable levels of management/reporting access, since in retailing it’s inevitable that store managers, field managers, head-office managers and training team staff will all need to view reports
