How to Write an RFP for LMS Vendors

Web Courseworks

An RFP, or Request for Proposal, allows you to outline what you are looking for in your ideal Learning Management System vendor and creates a standardized form or checklist for all would-be vendors to follow. Since the RFP allows you to review LMS presentations and proposals quickly and easily, with all needed information included, it can streamline the decision-making process and help you quickly identify the products or vendors that best match your needs, budget and program.

High Customer Satisfaction Scores Might Make Your Training Organization Obsolete

Training Industry

If you’re a trainer or training professional, you probably use some type of customer satisfaction score to measure how happy students are with the courses that you offer them. If your satisfaction scores are high, you communicate that message out to the organization to highlight what a great job you’re doing. In fact, high satisfaction scores might well be hiding the fact that many of your training customers are ready to jump ship and find another provider.

Is Your RFP Response On Point? Tips for Learning Systems Vendors

Talented Learning

” “You didn’t follow our format, so we couldn’t score your proposal as highly as others.” But vendors have more control over RFP outcomes than you may think. Sounds obvious – but you’d be surprised how many vendors ignore requested input. As a vendor, you can demonstrate leadership by seeking clarification. LMS buyers don’t evaluate software vendors on product features and functionality, alone.

And yeah there are vendors who will taut that they are in X list or Y rankings and thus should be included. This isn’t a beauty contest, nor a pay for play (I NEVER accept that, nor play that game, nor do I accept any referral fees or whatever some vendors offer for recommending them).

Seven Simple Steps to Select the Right LMS Vendor

CommLab India

You need to follow a proven process to zero-in on the right vendor, who can meet your needs well. The responses of the LMS providers can be evaluated by allotting scores to each. Select the vendors who score high, and contact them for the next step — a demonstration of their product. Step 3: Ask Vendors to Demonstrate Their LMSs. Step 4: Request LMS Vendors for a Free Trial of Their Products. Step 6: Check the Financial Health of the LMS Vendor.

LMS Setup Fees: For some vendors it’s a cash cow

eLearning 24-7

Just as a seriously doubt many of the LMS vendors who feel it is their duty to charge one time setup fees that break your budget bank. With that came companies who knew you could score high profit margins for something people needed – implementation, etc. There are plenty of vendors who do not charge any type of setup fee. Equally there are vendors who charge a setup fee for items that you need to make it go. I know of vendors who charge 3K per API.

Working with E-Learning Vendors: Creating a Request for Information (RFI)

E-learning Uncovered

The selection of an e-learning vendor can seem challenging. Maybe you don’t know what vendors can provide the exact product or service you need, or it might be that you aren’t even sure WHAT you need. My next few blog posts will give some tips I have found for selecting and working with vendors. First, let’s focus on how to get the information you need from a vendor using a Request for Information (RFI). You want a vendor with existing courseware you can license.

ROI: Should You Host The LMS or Let the Vendor

Kapp Notes

I have to admit, I lean toward having a vendor host the solution. What level commitment will the IT department provide to you when course scores are not being properly reported? Since externally hosted solutions are under a great deal of scrutiny by potential clients and since a security breach can be catastrophic to a vendor who host external solutions, the security is often times much higher than internal network security. Many vendors have 128 bit or higher SSL encryption.

That every e-learning vendor who receives an internet inquiry, responds in a personal nature – rather than responding with a canned message, a pre-sales pitch or a pre-something pitch.

Typically, these RFIs consist of one or more tables that simply require Yes/No answers from the vendors. The longer you make your RFI, the lower the response rate from vendors.
