A responsive team is in your corner

Amazing LMS Support

Our knowledgeable LMS Success Desk® team is happy to work with clients at every level. Whether you’re a brand new prospect or a long-time client, you’ll receive the same exceptional support.

No other LMS will support you the way we do

It's our not-so-secret, secret sauce!

Our Success Desk team provides onboarding, training, and real-time support so you can make the most of your eLearning investment. No matter our clients’ training goals, we are committed to meeting and exceeding their expectations.

Bottom-right is a woman cheerfully gesturing at her laptop screen, and overlaid, just to the top-right of her image, is a speech bubble with a red heart.

What does LMS support mean to us?

We strive for no less than the best when it comes to supporting you. Our friendly, respectful team will do everything they can to bring you fast solutions and advice on making your eLearning dreams a reality.

We’ll develop a relationship with you

Building personal connections is our superpower.

SmarterU’s Success Desk team fosters a strong relationship with your organization. This way, we’re well-equipped to understand and anticipate your needs.

A woman with a big smile, wearing a blue and white check shirt and wavy brown hair and a man in a light blue, button-up shirt and glasses looking at a shared tablet that the man is holding. They're surrounded by several icons that represent relationship building: two hands clasping, a group of people, a speech bubble with lines, an open envelope with a letter peeking out, a target with an arrow in the middle, a mobile phone, a star, a heart, and a lightbulb. All icons are connected by solid and dotted lines.

Every support conversation is just for you

Your organization is one of a kind, your LMS support should be too.

There are no scripts here. Our support team considers how you use your SmarterU LMS and tailors each call to your specific usage goals. We can explore other tools in your ecosystem too, saving you from having to go back and forth between vendors.

Answers, not wait times

We measure ourselves on meaningful guidance, not automated responses.

Our lightning-fast support team won’t keep you waiting when you need assistance. Even though we boast quick response times, we’ll never make you feel rushed. Instead, we devote as much time as it takes to provide the best possible solution and make sure it’s to your satisfaction.

Below the illustration, the SmarterU support response times are listed: 40-minute median response time for Standard Support, and 25-minute median response time for Premium Support.

We don’t make assumptions, we dig into the root of your request

Whatever your question may be, our team will always go the extra mile just to make you smile.

We won’t rush you to the quickest solution, our goal is to find the best solution. That’s why we treat LMS support inquiries as a dialogue where we learn about your business operations while answering your question. Armed with this knowledge, we will shape effective solutions that fit within your business model.

We're in business to serve you!

SmarterU’s LMS features are driven by client feedback; if there’s something you want to see, let us know!

We see every client interaction as an opportunity to learn something new! You are always welcome to let us know how we can enhance our LMS for yourself and others. Every quarter, we also utilize NPS (Net Promotor Score®) to track overall client satisfaction and quickly adapt if needed.

We’ll help you get the most out of SmarterU

Our LMS is feature-rich. We’ll help you identify which features are most important for your organization.

We understand that no two organizations will use all of the same LMS features. We’ll work with you to determine which features best fit your eLearning goals and show you how to use them to their fullest potential.

Your LMS implementation starts with a conversation

We help you design a training program that meets your goals.

The first step to attaining your ideal LMS is to know what you need it to do and how to make that happen. From day one, our in-house LMS implementation specialists will take the time to understand your short and long-term eLearning goals, other tools and integrations in your training ecosystem, and the needs of all of your stakeholders. Using this knowledge, we leave nothing up to chance and guide you through all necessary decisions with clarity.

LMS launch and post-launch analysis

Our relationship continues long after your LMS launch, making sure you get the most from your SmarterU subscription.

When your LMS launches, it’s just the beginning of our partnership with you. We can guide you through various changes to your account, work with you to establish a pilot of your training program, help answer questions from stakeholders and learners, and provide coaching for administrative tasks.

As your LMS rolls out across your organization, we’ll help you navigate reports showcasing invaluable metrics giving you awareness to make decisive business decisions.

Consistent Management for your LMS

LMS Managed Services

Have a vision of your perfect training program but are short on resources to put your plan into action? Our LMS Managed Services team is available on a short- or long-term basis.

A set of expert remote hands is always there when you need them

If you’re between hires, have staff on leave, or for any other reason, a member of our team can be your lead LMS administrator!

We offer comprehensive LMS Managed Services that let you bring one of us on board as your LMS administrator. On a temporary or permanent basis, a SmarterU expert can complete daily user and course management services, run reports, and even communicate with your stakeholders as your organization's LMS administration team.

Why use LMS Managed Services?

Any administrative duty, any time you need

No task is too big or too small; a SmarterU LMS expert can do it all!

When you use our Managed Services, we can:

  • Perform daily tasks such as user management, course delivery, and completion reporting.
  • Help your internal adminstrators or trainees leverage SmarterU’s rich features.
  • Streamline training delivery across your organization.
  • Schedule custom reports with your specific metrics.
  • And anything else you need — just ask us!

Prevent coverage gaps in your eLearning program!

A substitute administrator keeps everything running smoothly.

Your learners need consistency in their training, and your organization needs every position adequately covered. When you’re temporarily down an administrator, both these things are at risk. Bridge the gap by bringing in our LMS Managed Services team. This way, you can save on the costly overhead of a temporary hire and trust an expert who already understands your eLearning goals.

Proactive communication keeps everything under control

We’ll establish a cadence of communication with you to help you keep your hand on the pulse of your organization’s training.

Our Managed Services team takes a proactive approach to client communication. We want to make sure you’re always satisfied with your LMS, and if you tell us about any challenges, we’ll dig in to find out how to fix them. We can also work alongside your internal administration team, uncover any potential usage gaps, and coach your administrators on how to fill them.
