LMS Custom Development

Learning management systems (LMS) have emerged as vital tools for delivering effective training and education. However, off-the-shelf LMS solutions, while partially configurable, often fail to meet the diverse needs of businesses. This is where Webanywhere excels as the go-to vendor, specializing in bespoke custom development using the Totara Learning Platform. Webanywhere co-create learning experiences that not only meet but exceed the expectations of our customers and their end-users. While off-the-shelf Learning Management Systems (LMS) offer convenience and immediate deployment, there are instances where building your own LMS can provide significant advantages.

Tailored Solutions for Unique Requirements

One of the main drawbacks of off-the-shelf LMS solutions is their limited flexibility. Businesses have unique training needs, ranging from industry-specific compliance to company-specific workflows. At Webanywhere, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach won’t suffice. Our team of experienced developers works closely with customers to understand their specific requirements and design tailor-made learning platforms using the powerful Totara Learning Platform as a foundation. This ensures that our customers receive a solution that aligns perfectly with their business objectives and workflows.

Co-Creating Learning Experiences

At Webanywhere, we believe that true success lies in the ability to co-create learning experiences with our customers. We value the input and expertise of our clients, as they possess a deep understanding of their industry, learners, and organizational culture. By collaborating closely with our customers, we ensure that the learning platform we develop is not only functionally rich but also aligned with their unique brand identity, visual design preferences, and instructional approach. This collaborative approach fosters a sense of ownership and enhances the overall user experience, ultimately delighting both our customers and their end-users.

Unleashing the Power of Totara Learning Platform

Totara Learning Platform serves as an excellent foundation for creating bespoke learning experiences. It is an open-source LMS that offers extensive customization capabilities, making it an ideal choice for organizations with complex learning requirements. Webanywhere’s expertise in developing with Totara enables us to leverage its full potential, tailoring it to suit the specific needs of our customers. Whether it’s advanced reporting and analytics, gamification elements, or integrations with existing systems, our team has the expertise to enhance and extend the platform, ensuring our customers’ learning experiences are engaging, impactful, and efficient.

Delighting Customers and the Customers’ Customers

By partnering with Webanywhere, organizations can expect more than just a learning platform – they can expect an exceptional customer experience. We prioritize building long-term relationships with our customers, aiming to become trusted partners in their learning and development journey. Through our collaborative approach, we not only meet our customers’ expectations but exceed them, consistently delivering solutions that align with their strategic goals and drive learner engagement.

Our Solution Architects at Webanywhere go the extra mile to understand your business and the customer journey by conducting insightful workshops. These workshops enable us to delve deep into your organization’s intricacies, identify pain points, and comprehend your unique requirements. By engaging with stakeholders and subject matter experts, we gather valuable insights that shape the specifications of what we build and why we build it. This collaborative approach ensures that the final solution aligns perfectly with your business objectives and delivers an exceptional learning experience for your users.

At Webanywhere, we embrace an agile methodology to ensure that your LMS not only meets technical requirements but also delivers commercial success. We employ scrums and sprints, where our development team works in iterative cycles, focusing on incremental delivery and continuous improvement. This approach allows for quick feedback, adaptation, and prioritization of features based on their business value. Alongside scrum sprints, our leadership meetings provide a platform to align business goals, assess progress, and make informed decisions. By fostering collaboration, transparency, and flexibility, our agile methodology ensures that your LMS evolves in tandem with your business needs, ultimately driving tangible outcomes and maximizing its commercial impact.

By integrating Totara with Salesforce, organizations can synchronize learner data, track training progress, and leverage valuable insights to enhance their sales and customer service initiatives.

In addition to Salesforce, Webanywhere has successfully integrated Totara with Snowflake, a cloud data platform. This integration allows organizations to leverage Snowflake’s powerful data analytics capabilities to gain deeper insights into learner behavior, performance, and training effectiveness. By combining the data from Totara and Snowflake, organizations can make data-driven decisions and optimize their learning strategies to meet the evolving needs of their workforce.

Webanywhere’s expertise extends beyond these specific integrations. We have experience integrating Totara with a wide range of platforms, such as HR systems, content management systems (CMS), webinar tools, and more.
