Accord LMS Pricing: Features, Costs and Top LMS Alternatives

Accord LMS is a scalable solution designed to help companies of all sizes offer learning opportunities to their employees.

We’ve reviewed Accord LMS in the past and compared it with other learning management systems in terms of features, costs and other attributes. This post will focus on Accord LMS’ pricing plans and the prices of its alternatives.

How Much is Accord LMS?

Accord’s pricing model is based on active learners, meaning the learner has accessed training content or completed a course within a billing period. There are four subscription plans based on the number of active learners (note that the price is listed as monthly, but is billed annually).

  • Up to 200 learners: $295/month
  • Up to 500 learners: $495/month
  • Up to 1,000 learners: $745/month
  • Over 1,000 learners (or other requirements): Contact Accord LMS

All plans include Core LMS features, such as:

  • Unlimited registered users
  • Mobile learning
  • Gamification and social learning
  • Blended learning
  • Role-based learner enrollment
  • Reporting dashboards with automated or scheduled report delivery

Some of the Enterprise LMS features include:

  • Unlimited custom branded portals
  • Web-content management system
  • Multiple tenant support
  • eCommerce functionality
  • Single sign-on

All of Accord LMS’ pricing plans also support integration with many systems, including Box, Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft Sharepoint and GoToMeeting.

Finally, there’s an additional $2,000 setup fee for a fully functional LMS portal, white labeling, and custom branding and training.

Top Alternatives to Accord LMS

When comparing pricing with other vendors, Accord LMS provides reasonable monthly licensing fees for companies. However, companies must also pay the $2,000 implementation fee. Below, we’ve detailed two alternatives with similar (or cheaper) subscription fees, but lower implementation costs.

The Corporate plan covers up to 300 active users for $400 a month; it includes both email and phone support, 50 GB storage, integration with Google Apps, developer application programming interface and gamification features. The Enterprise plan costs $650 a month for up to 1,000 active users, which includes multiple (up to 10) language support, premium support with 24/7/365 availability, 100 GB storage, role automations and learning plans.
