Making an investment into a new LMS system typically comes with questions to find the right system. Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions:
What is a learning management system (LMS)?
Wikipedia defines a learning management system (LMS) as:
“A software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, and reporting of training programs, classroom and online events, e-learning programs, and training content.”
What this means is that the right learning management solution can help you better reach your goals. Whether you want to focus on continuing education, eLearning availability, synchronous or asynchronous learning, mobile learning, certification programs, or even eCommerce and more, learning management systems are designed to provide the features you need to make sure your unique learning goals are met and a positive ROI is achieved.
Is an LMS right for my organization?
If you have or are looking to build any form of training and knowledge sharing efforts within your organization, a learning management system is what you need to easily and affordably get a program where you need it to be.
TOPYX LMS is a valuable learning solution for companies, academic departments, associations, municipalities, and eCommerce needs of any size, anywhere in the world.
How much does an LMS cost?
Some LMS software is very expensive. Paying per user can increase your costs dramatically.
Fortunately, TOPYX LMS provides a complete, easy-to-use learning management solution with no users fees, no bandwidth fees, and free implementation for a low, flat annual subscription. Compare the total cost of ownership with LMS options before making a decision.
Check out our LMS pricing page for more info.
Explain the ‘no user fees’ of TOPYX LMS.
Whether you have 500 or five million users, TOPYX costs the same. There are no per user/seat/license fees at all.
This will allow TOPYX to grow with your expanding learning and training needs, without making your expenses grow. When paying per user, the total cost of ownership (including the time spent managing access) skyrockets. Do the math on the total cost of an LMS before deciding what learning management system to go with.
How long does TOPYX take to implement?
You can have your own TOPYX LMS instance up and running in just a few weeks. This depends on your response times and customization needs. We are in this together.
Remember, we do not charge any additional fees for implementation (unlike other LMS providers).
Do I have to put TOPYX on my own servers?
No. TOPYX is a fully hosted, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering
We will host the entire learning environment for you so you will not increase your IT burden. There are no additional costs for bandwidth when using TOPYX.
Can an LMS look and feel like my brand?
As part of your TOPYX subscription, implementation and branding are included.
We will take your logos, colors, and key messaging and build your unique TOPYX LMS instance to look and feel like an extension of your brand.
Will my content work correctly on TOPYX?
While it is always best to test, we can confidently assume that there will be no problem with your content on TOPYX.
TOPYX was built to accommodate most forms of file formats, xAPI (Tin Can) and is SCORM certified. Not all LMSs are SCORM certified. Learn more about what that means.
When you request a demo, we can run a test with your content to verify that all will work as expected.
Do you offer a content library?
Yes. Download our TOPYX course list.
You may choose our course offerings, however TOPYX is designed to be content agnostic to handle any content so you are not locked into unnecessary content bundles. With this flexibility we can support documents, audio, video, SCORM, xAPI and LTI – from you or other third party vendors.
Is eCommerce a possibility?
You have valuable content to sell. We have an eCommerce engine built into TOPYX that can help. Let’s talk about how you can get started.
Can TOPYX integrate to my other resources?
TOPYX can integrate FTP, FTPS, API, Single-sign on (including SAML identity and service provider), Salesforce integration and more.
Your unique integration needs will be reviewed to determine how everything will come together with TOPYX. Request a demo and our team will uncover the best options for your learning program.
Is TOPYX available in multiple languages?
Yes, 17 languages are currently available. All language packs are an additional fee.
