Axis LMS At A Glance

Good: Customizable user interface, variety of social learning and collaboration features, scalable pricing plans.
Bad: Not ideal for companies with fewer than 100 learners.
Bottom Line: Robust learning management system that provides tools for companies to successfully train employees and ensure certification requirements are met.

Product Overview

Axis LMS is a robust learning management system that provides tools for companies to successfully create, administer, and track internal and external training programs. Clients can easily create their own branded sites with Axis LMS tools rather than rely on the vendor to do it for them.

Companies are able to use Axis LMS for internal employee training and external customer/client training, or to sell their training programs. The solution also helps clients ensure their employees comply with certification requirements.

Axis LMS has several benefits, which include:

  • Reduced travel expenses and other expenses associated with training
  • Accessible on any desktop or mobile device
  • Flexible pricing plans
  • Flexible content and course creation features (e.g., authoring tools, content library, ability to import videos or presentations)
  • Increased user collaboration with social learning features

Axis LMS has three tiers: Rapid, Rapid Pro and Enterprise. Specific pricing for these tiers is in our Pricing section below, but we wanted to highlight the features included in each tier.

Rapid – The Rapid tier includes many of the Axis LMS features, such as:

  • Free initial set-up and free onboarding
  • Unlimited training
  • Content and course creation tools
  • Ability to import videos, presentations and documents
  • User management
  • Reporting
  • Ability to track instructor-led training courses
  • Continuing education
  • Gamification
  • E-commerce
  • Notifications
  • Social learning
  • Audit trails
  • Integration to other applications

Rapid Pro – The Rapid Pro tier includes more advanced features, such as:

  • Organizational topology, which creates a hierarchy of all users and their relationship in the system
  • Ability to assign a manager or trainer role to users
  • Specific administrative rights for managers
  • Ability for managers to share course content created by higher-level executives
  • Purchasing agent storefront for business-to-business sales

Enterprise – The Enterprise tier includes the following features:

  • A dedicated private cloud server
  • Localization packs for specific languages
  • Customizable user interface phrases
  • Optional Axis cloud file storage
  • Increased application program interface (API) limits for larger-scale integration

  • Prioritized support
  • Custom product enhancements
  • Product updates during off hours to minimize downtime

Features

Here are several key features that Axis LMS offers:

Branded training sites – With Axis LMS, administrators can create training sites that best fit their company’s brand. They can add their company logo and colors, include CSS and JavaScript coding, and add personalized courses. Administrators can make branding changes at any time, either globally or to specific items.

Administrators can also customize their sites to work on learners’ mobile devices. With the Adaptive Web Engine, administrators can create courses and content that work on both desktop and mobile devices. They can also customize mobile settings, such as limiting the amount of content shown on mobile devices.

Online course creation features – Administrators can create their online training programs, inserting content such as videos, images and documents via a drag-and-drop interface. Quizzes and surveys can also be created. Administrators are able to use Axis LMS’ built-in authoring tools or its course content library to create courses.

Administrators can set up specific learning paths, meaning learners need to complete certain prerequisites to unlock specific courses. They can also set time limits for completing specific course activity, such as quizzes.

Collaboration and social learning features – Trainers and learners communicate together within Axis LMS in a variety of ways, such as email, messaging, community forums and live chat. There’s also a UserConnect social network that works like LinkedIn or Facebook. Learners can share updates, collaborate in specific groups and compete to earn badges. Administrators can set up an unlimited number of badges that are awarded to learners based on specific outcomes, such as completing or passing a course, participating in forums or earning a certification.

Continuing education courses – Administrators can set up certification or continuing education units with specific metrics, such as the credits and courses needed for recertification, or how long certification lasts. They can also import older certification and credits into Axis LMS, as well as set up automated email reminders that learners will need to be recertified.

Reporting – Axis LMS has robust reporting tools to help trainers measure learners’ progress. Trainers can view progress for specific courses and learners, pass/fail metrics and more. They can run reports either on an ad-hoc basis or on specific schedules. Reports can be emailed to specific users, or users can be designated as report administrators so they can access reports via the Axis LMS platform.

E-commerce – Axis LMS has e-commerce functionality for clients to sell courses and training programs. Administrators can use a pre-built storefront or create their own. Axis LMS has an purchasing agent storefront feature for companies that want to sell learning programs to other businesses. Outside companies can purchase a block of courses for their employees and use Axis LMS to track their employees’ progress.
