LMS is short for learning management system, a software application providing a framework for digitising your hospitality training programme. It's the place for hosting, managing and your staff training.
The first kind of LMS is hosted by the company, which requires IT and coding capabilities, owned servers, etc.; the other is a cloud-based solution, like Flow Learning, which is a virtual service paid for monthly or annually and requires no technical expertise from your company.
If you use a cloud-based solution like Flow Learning, all technical maintenance and support is taken care of by us, and you only need to worry about managing and assigning content. You can even create your own content if you wish, find out more about that here.
It’s important to decide what LMS features your company needs before choosing hospitality training software. If you’re not sure, get in touch and our team will help you to find a plan that suits your brand.
