Long-term outlook

4 reasons why you should
invest in a bespoke LMS

To Take control of your finances

SaaS (monthly subscription LMSs) are affordable to start out. However, over time inconsistent support, hidden fees and limited customizations will slow your growth and cost you dearly.

Make your overheads predictable

Without any per user fees, you're free from unpredictable overheads and could stay within your annual budget while having the opportunity to sustain growth.

Own a reliable LMS

Choose an LMS that stands the test of time. Plume's engineered solutions are created so they last for years due to their modular and customizable nature.

Achieve seamless integrations

Integration with your existing systems is smooth and intuitive, from seamless UX on your marketing site and LMS to two-way sync between your internal HR, compliance and CRM systems. No workarounds and distractions from your mission.

LMS ownership

Buy once, use forever
Your always-on investment

The risks of SaaS are real: rising costs, feature changes, and vendor buy-outs/shutdowns can erase your investment overnight.

Plume eliminates these risks by giving you access to your LMS's code, allowing you to self-host and transition to in-house management whenever you're ready.
