Onboarding

The Importance of Onboarding

When it comes to onboarding your Thinking Cap LMS, we’re committed to making it a smooth and seamless experience. Whether this is your first LMS or you’re transitioning from another one, you can count on our intuitive technology and abundant expertise to get you up and running fast. What follows are a number of the common activities done in the onboarding process. Each new client has their own challenges implementing an LMS. Our onboarding is done by a manager assigned to your account and they will bring together all the skills and planning needed to get you up, running and serving Learners.

Smooth Data Transition

If you’re transitioning from an existing LMS, you can rest easy knowing we go above and beyond to make it as go as smoothly as possible. One of the things we do is take all your legacy data and convert it so full learning histories can be loaded up with your Thinking Cap installation.

Seamless Integration

To cut down on the speed-bumps and hiccups that can sometimes happen during onboarding, we made sure our Thinking Cap LMS plays well with others. A streamlined sign-on process, User Synchronization, and pre-integrated third-party software help make the process seamless.

Our SSO makes the login process seamless and secure for your users. It also helps deliver user information to streamline User Synchronization. You can easily define how users log in to your LMS – whether it’s through the LMS itself, or by one or more Federated Authentication Providers.
