What to Look for When Integrating Your Netforum Pro AMS

If you have NetForum Pro AMS, you don’t have to give up a great AMS platform to use an LMS of your choosing. Knowing which LMS works best with your NetForum Pro AMS is essential to getting the most out of your AMS for the success of your CE program. In this post we’ll show you the hallmarks of the best LMS to integrate with your NetForum Pro AMS.

Look for platform that offers seamless data transfer between your NetForum Pro AMS and LMS

Your first hurdle in selecting the right LMS to integrate with your NetForum Pro AMS is to ensure that the platform offers a comprehensive integration services, allowing you to rest assured that the two platforms work together seamlessly. This definitely is not a DIY task, you will need an enterprise-grade LMS that is highly competent in data management and AMS-LMS integration.

Choose an LMS that helps you keep your data clean, accessible, and easy to share

With a full-featured LMS, you will be able to get complete control of your CE data and review association insights through the same dashboard. With EthosCE Analytics, for example, your data is accessible through a series of customizable dashboards. You can slice your data the way you want, view aggregate or individual learner data sets historically or in real-time, then share easily with advanced data visualizations.

Select an LMS that offers full task automation for LMS administrative and course management duties

Regardless of how small the task, be it a welcome email or an update to a learner’s transcript, when your program grows these repetitive duties will not only threaten to interrupt your team’s natural workflow but they may compromise productivity levels across your entire organization. Your LMS should add value to your AMS by taking over tasks that can easily be done by another platform, especially when it comes to managing your CE administrative duties.

Pick an LMS that offers comprehensive support services before, during, and after AMS-LMS integration

Even if you have found an incredible AMS-LMS integration service, you will find yourself with a significant management challenge if you do not have easy access to support services. If the platform that you choose doesn’t offer training, on-boarding, and extensive support from day one then you will find yourself either paying for outside tech support, or saddled with a range of costly new add-on services that you may not need just to maintain basic functionality.

Purchase an LMS that does not take your NetForum Pro AMS for granted

  • Your LMS should be a partner with your AMS, making it better at its job, not adding to the load it carries. Select an LMS that can easily handle tasks like:
  • Member support for LMS use
  • FAQ and knowledge base formatting
  • Custom report generation
  • Data warehousing
  • Order fulfillment for e-commerce including offline events
  • Webinar signups and viewing through the LMS
  • Member polling and data retrieval
  • Member demographic profile reviews and analysis

In addition, your LMS should give you full visibility of AMS data through a single dashboard, allowing you to get a complete portrait of the latest AMS and CE program information at a glance. That data is useless to your organization unless it can be shared easily. Use an LMS that simplifies data and report sharing from your AMS-LMS integrated platform.
