The Business Case for a Learning Management System

Dear law firm trainers!  In my never-ending quest to be a handy helper, I thought I’d post a document that you could simply cut and paste onto your firm’s letterhead so that you can make a business case for purchasing an LMS. (Of course, I add a few special benefits of the SavvyAcademy LMS, as well.) If you’re looking to purchase an LMS for your law firm, read on! 

What is an LMS?

A learning management system (LMS) is designed to enable trainers and human resources personnel to manage training and learning processes efficiently. A robust LMS can manage online learning content and delivery, and it can also enhance classroom trainings. Trainers and HR personnel can utilize the LMS to track the progress of each learner, monitoring professional development as well as the entire firm’s achievements toward core competency requirements.

An LMS does not eliminate the need for training, but rather enables trainers to provide more customized, effective and efficient training for staff and lawyers throughout the year.

What is the SavvyAcademy LMS?

The SavvyAcademy LMS was awarded “Best Services Solution” at the Denver Biz Tech Expo and provides all of the flexibility, customization and tracking features that law firm trainers need today at an affordable cost.

What Benefits Can an LMS Deliver?

Benefits of an LMS include, but are not limited to:

  1. Cost reduction in the delivery and management of training

  2. Rapid deployment of targeted learning

  3. “Just-in-time” training

  4. Cost-effective training, assessment and reporting

  5. Consolidation of training resources

  6. Management and deployment of e-learning modules

  7. Reduction in the amount of IT time required to facilitate the training of new hires.

  8. Enables consistent training and protocols across multiple firm branches

  9. Reports provide quantifiable results for performance review process

Additionally, reports from the LMS showing ongoing firm-wide achievements in core competency requirements, as well as security awareness training, can differentiate the firm in a competitive marketplace.

How Much Does It Cost?

For SavvyAcademy LMS, there are no capital expenses for hardware and software licensing.  The Savvy licensing model is based on the number of users and the learning solution is cloud-based to ensure ease of access.

Business Case Options

  1. Move forward with the purchase of an LMS and improve the firm’s overall efficiency.

  2. Maintain the status quo.

Additional Considerations

Savvy Training & Consulting is a member of LTC4 (Legal Technology Core Competencies Certification Coalition).  LTC4 is a non-profit organization that has established legal technology core competencies that all law firms can use to measure ongoing efficiency improvements. Thus, the Savvy content meets the standards set by the LTC4 requirements.
