You can find a lot of LMS companies who provide different information on the size of business.

The argument that you have to spend over 50K to find a sweet LMS is totally bogus. The LMS market as a whole, has some serious issues when it comes to “ease of use” and “sweet” user interfaces – on both the end user and admin side.

Other LMSs state that have the EE features, but in order to have the true extended enterprise, the child has to purchase a LMS and then there is an interface if you will, to connect each channel partner with one another.
