Engineered for Business, Designed by Workplace Learning Professionals
We are the LMS vendor that is obsessed with your success! Our goal is to make managing a world-class training program pain-free for businesses. Torch’s corporate LMS has won top industry awards, and we have some the biggest names in business using our system.
Torch LMS is a powerful, yet easy-to-use system that focuses on the essential features of learning management for businesses.
Our system was developed by workplace learning professionals who had experienced the learning management systems industry as being woefully inadequate for businesses. Our product is designed around efficiency, ease-of-use, and doing the essentials really well. First and foremost, we have designed an LMS system around what learning managers really need on a daily basis, and what organizations need to ensure that the learning function is delivering its promised results.
There are a number of business trends that are increasing the importance of learning management systems, including: growing regulatory compliance requirements, pressure to roll out products more quickly, and the need to develop future leaders. We could also add to this list the need to reduce employee training costs (e.g., travel, instructor fees, etc.) by using e-learning tools rather than traditional classroom training. Torch LMS helps businesses & corporations address these unique challenges.
Torch LMS Focuses on Four Areas of Differentiation
Torch LMS is a business LMS focused on being a best-in-class solution, rather than a suite of complementary solutions. We make a point of integrating with other best-in-class solutions that complement corporate learning and development. By investing our efforts solely on corporate learning and development, we are able to offer a superior product to our customers.
Automation and Efficiency
For a business LMS to be a viable option for both small organizations and large companies, it has to be very easy to administer. As such, efficiency is an important focus for us. Training Managers often have other duties; sometimes they are over company HR, conduct training themselves, do all of the instructional design, etc. They need a system that they can manage on their own; something intuitive and even permits periodic use without retraining, and includes extensive automation that will work as if they had another staff member. Our experience with other LMS company products is that they are rarely efficient enough for a small business, and often lack automated features. Torch LMS removes any unnecessary steps, and adds automation whenever possible.
Intuitive and appealing Interface Design
All corporate LMS users want an appealing interface that is easy to navigate. Businesses need users to easily find their way around their LMS, with no additional support. We focus on making the user-side interface and the admin-side interface highly intuitive, and we make use of more modern interface designs. Many of our customers have expressed frustration with their previous LMS solution, saying things like: “Our legacy LMS looks like Windows 95,” or “Their updated interface is like putting lipstick on a pig.” Interface design—including mobile responsiveness—has been a huge focus for Torch LMS.
Our experience and research makes clear that LMS buyers are dissatisfied with the support and service they receive from their providers. Some learning management companies have tried to remedy this by offering costly support packages (e.g., gold level, silver level, etc.). However, this is usually not a cost small that mid-sized businesses can bear—creating yet another barrier for these businesses. Torch Learning Management System treats all customers with the same high level of care and concern. We are also nimble enough to be highly responsive to customer feedback. We are the LMS company that is obsessed with your success!
