Overall Satisfaction with Tovuti LMS

We use Tovuti for B2B to support client internal training initiatives. We use a blended curriculum development with most of our clients that includes eLearning and instructor-led distance learning on Tovuti followed up with skills-based hands-on training in the field. We have a large library of assets that we are migrating to Tovuti as new courses are developed and old courses are put into Tovuti to be revised.
  • Content management - Gives us a central location to store assets and organize them. In the past individual training writers tended to organize assets for their courses on our network in whatever method suited them.
  • Import of PowerPoint - I don't believe in PowerPoint page turners, but many of our legacy assets are in PowerPoint, so being able to import them seamlessly has been a great benefit for getting our legacy assets into the system.
  • Branded Learning - We have multiple B2B clients and many learning management systems that we've worked with in the past required a lot of customer work to give them the correct look and feel for each client. Tovuti has made this go very smooth.
  • eLearning development - Remote classroom and interactive eLearning are NOT the same thing but it seems most LMS's are heavily influenced by K12 needs rather than private industry training needs. There is always room for improvement in this area to push level 2 and 3 interactions.
  • Project management integration - Again, coming from the B2B private industry area each course is also a "project" that needs to be management. Integrating basic PM tools into the LMS would help us eliminate the need for a separate PM tool.
  • Cost - Other learning managements systems were just to cost prohibitive for us to really use and open source code systems needed way to much work. Tovuti give our small company a tool that seemed to be only avaible to large corporations before.
  • Organization of course assets - allowing authors to work from anywhere to build content so they don't NEED to be in an office each day during COVID.
In 2015 my company did a deep dive of the five top rated LMS in the industry. None of them did exactly what we wanted and ALL of them were cost prohibitive in a competitive B2B market in the automotive industry. I am sure authoring and content management has taken a huge leap for everyone the past 5 years, but Tovuti has the features we need with lower cost.
Customer support is probably one of the big benefits of Tovuti. It is clear that they care and they are trying to build something great that will be adapted by more and more companies and providing excellent customer support my authors has gone a long way to ease their minds to "learn something new" (how to use the LMS).
Usability has been excellent. My team members help each other out when something comes up, but overall I feel the system is very intuitive for authors, instructors, and students alike.

Yes

Would you buy Tovuti LMS again?

Yes

Excellent for importing legacy course content and management content within the cloud. In the past it was sort of an unorganized mess on our network. The individual authors knew whether their content was, but it wasn't consistent. The virtual classrooms for live learning have also been a great benefit during the COVID crisis.
