Increase Revenue with Your Extended Enterprise LMS by Enabling Partners & Customers

• 2 min read

58% of organizations say extended enterprise learning reduces training costs

An organization’s learning management system is often known as a cost center. However, more and more businesses are starting to see the value in providing training beyond the “four walls” of their internal employees, consequently turning their LMS into a revenue center.

Enable Nonemployees with Your LMS

Expanding training to nonemployees (also known as extended enterprise learning) can provide a number of business benefits, such as increased revenue, decreased costs, and improved productivity. For example, according to Brandon Hall Group’s Extended Enterprise 2017 survey, 30% of those surveyed say that extended enterprise learning covers more than 50% of the costs of their learning technology.

Some examples of extended enterprise learning include partner training and certification, dealer/franchise onboarding, a customer training academy, contract workforce compliance training, and so on.
