Why Dokeos Is the Best LMS

Worth $315 billion in 2023, the e-learning market is expected to grow every year by 20% by 2028. The growing importance of e-learning highlights the importance of acquiring its own LMS platform. Why not you? But which one to choose? It’s options galore when it comes to learning management systems (LMS). Much like choosing any other software, you need to do your homework to narrow the options down to the ones that fit your specific business needs. What attributes make Dokeos the best LMS provider in a sea of competitors that can make the same claim?

Industry experience

The first LMS were introduced to the public in the late 1990s, coinciding with the proliferation of the World Wide Web. Dokeos was founded by Thomas De Praetere in 2004, just a few years after the first LMS prototypes. In essence, we have been around for nearly as long as the concept of LMS. This has given us far more time than the competitors to refine and improve our platform. In the SaaS industry, experience counts, and our nearly two decades of experience have made us the best LMS provider.

Loyal customer base

Dokeos has amassed a user base of roughly two million people who have taken a digital course on Dokeos LMS. This is across 5,900 courses that have been created on the platform. The company has 400 active clients, some of which include big names like Mednet, Lexia, Oxurion, Amer Sports, and more. An LMS provider doesn’t acquire high-profile clientele without an established reputation.

Custom e-learning solutions made by the best LMS

It’s not enough to copy the existing template of another company’s e-training course. Even companies in the same industry with identical audiences can have vastly different training needs. Factors like employee size, the ratio of in-house to remote staff, and personal learning preferences dictate the direction of your e-training development. While you can borrow concepts from existing courses, your course ultimately needs to be unique to your brand.

Dokeos has an entire department specialised in e-course creation. This team is versed in:

  • Script writing
  • Quiz creation
  • Gamification
  • Module designs
  • Media production (including videos, infographic design, screencasts, etc.)

Very few LMS providers offer custom course creation. Many companies have to outsource course development to a third-party service that’s unfamiliar with the LMS platform.

Modules designed for compliance training

Our LMS is optimised for compliance training. Furthermore, we have consultants versed in compliance requirements of regulatory bodies like HIPAA and FDA 21 CFR. These advisors can review your compliance training and ensure it’s in line with the latest guidelines.

The best LMS based on digital sovereignty 

Dokeos is absolutely committed to its customer’s data protection and privacy. We implement a multi-approach process to ensure data security is in lockstep with the guidelines set forth by the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our multi-tier security approach includes:

  • Data stored in databases of the client’s country
  • All data stored in databases that meet SOC2 and ISO27001 specifications
  • Service levels agreements (SLA) guaranteeing data confidentiality

In addition, all Dokeos employees must follow strict data-handling practices.

Not beholden to shareholders or investors

Since our founding in 2004, we have been completely financed through equity alone. We don’t have investors and shareholders that fund our platform. This means we have full control of operations and where to steer our business. There’s no outside influence motivated by financial interests that dictate our decisions. As such, we can solely focus on what’s best for our clients.

In addition, due to economic difficulties, many LMS providers had to make do on a tighter budget. Their investors and shareholders simply were unable to contribute financially or did so sparingly. Dokeos, on the other hand, continued to thrive during this time of economic uncertainty.

The best LMS dedicated to corporate social responsibility (CSR)

Dokeos isn’t just a service provider. We have long committed to a more sustainable world, and our actions have reflected our words. One of our core commitments is a pledge to reduce our carbon footprint. Here are the actions we’ve taken:

  • Provided train subscriptions for our in-house employees, so they can travel to and from work without using their personal vehicles.
  • Our fleet vehicles consist of four electric vehicles
  • 80% of our office runs on solar energy, with plans to run on 100% solar energy by 2025

Sustainable business operations aside, we also provide new opportunities to disadvantaged youths. One of our ongoing projects is the Dokeos Foundation, a non-profit organisation that provides literacy and digitization to impoverished areas of the world.
