Posted by Ed Gipple on Oct 25, 2012 9:55:30 AM

Our full-featured, affordable, and user-friendly LMS is primarily targeted to the small to medium sized business and to on-line training providers. However, we have quite a range of clients - from large government agencies to small entrepreneurial businesses who have found Inquisiq to be the perfect learning management system (or sometimes referred to as a ‘virtual learning environment’ – VLE) solution for their needs; from internal eLearning requirements to training initiatives for the general public, or targeted groups, requiring eCommerce capabilities.

Are You Unhappy with Your LMS?

Posted by Ed Gipple on Sep 25, 2012 11:13:21 AM

A lot of our customers are refugees from other LMS provider. We’ve heard many reasons why a customer exploring our LMS is looking to leave the system they currently use; some of the more common are:

  • Not learner-friendly
  • Lacks reporting flexibility
  • Too many unforeseen expenses
  • Poor technical support
  • Does not scale well

Other complaints tend to be more specific, like no SCORM 2004 support, or no ability to connect with social platforms or web-conferences. Of course, while we don’t meet every customer’s requirements, we certainly have our share of converts!

What Our Customers are Saying

Posted by Ed Gipple on Sep 11, 2012 9:39:50 AM

While we get fairly frequent direct emails from our customers on their satisfaction with the our learning management system, they are frequently pretty brief and sent without expectation they’ll be made public.

So we’ve setup an Inquisiq review site to provide a public venue for customers to post a review of our LMS. Here are a few highlights:

  • We investigated 13 other LMS vendors before choosing Inquisiq R3 - I have ZERO regrets about our decision.
  • Some companies will try and sell you on those big systems and several weeks deployment - that's crazy! You can deploy this with 1-2 employees for 10,000+ users in 2 weeks.
  • Stable SCORM implementation. Superior logical design and physical system implementation. Intuitive interface. Very high value for every fee dollar.

Unique LMS Requirements for Online Training Providers

Posted by Ed Gipple on Aug 23, 2012 11:59:29 AM

Training Providers, as an industry distinguished from more formalized, corporate training providers, can have unique requirements for LMS functionality - both from the perspective of marketing, administration, and target audience:

  • As a content expert with a wide range of user demographics, an easy-to-use, ‘friendly’ system for implementing your training program is critical.
  • Changes in the eLearning subject-matter is continuously evolving, requiring a smart solution to allow recurring assessments, updated content, and certifications.
  • Lack of experience selling or promoting eLearning courseware is limiting growth.
  • The delivery system must scale with your company as it grows.
  • Limited availability of knowledgeable trainers is limiting your potential.
  • Personnel limitations with HR and/or IT staff is preventing growth.
  • Environmental resources may not allow for internal systems.

The Inquisiq learning management system allows training providers to overcome these challenges.

Posted by Heather Zauner on Jun 21, 2012 1:43:43 PM

A good way to start the blog on our Inquisiq LMS product is to define exactly what an LMS is for and can do. One starting point, as the search engines seem to agree, is Wikipedia,
