Course Management Software explained

Find out how a course management software could transform your business today.

What is course management software?

Course management software is used to manage a large program of instructor-led training courses. It organizes and automates course logistics, such as room bookings and sending reminder emails to attendees. It’s also used for commercial tasks, like taking bookings and payments.

Why is course management software important?

Without one, course providers use generic software that is not fit for purpose. These systems often don’t talk to each other, create inefficiencies and slows business growth. Purpose-built course management software helps operations save time, crush sales targets and improve registrant experience.

Who uses course management software?

In-house HR teams, community education providers, membership organizations and commercial training providers all run their operations on course management software. Within those teams, it’s generally course administrators and training managers who use the software day-to-day.
