There are few, if any, firms that match Tagoras for in-depth knowledge of technologies for continuing education and professional development initiatives and hands on experience in building and implementing these technologies. The clients who engage us for technology selection recognize that:
- Technology is strategic: the right choice can contribute dramatically to user experience, brand perception, and revenue generation; the wrong choice can have precisely the opposite effect;
- Speed to market matters: for market-facing initiatives, every day in which the right technology is not in place is a day of lost revenue for your organization and gains for competitors.
If these are issues that matter to your organization, we can help you:
- Select the right learning management system
For most organizations, learning management systems (LMS) and learning content management systems (LCMS) are new territory. Understanding all of the options – much less making a choice – can be confusing to say the least. At Tagoras, we we have deep experience implementing learning management systems and addressing related challenges – like integrating with membership management systems. We can help you make the right choice, reduce risk, and get to market faster. If you represent an association considering implementation of a learning management system, be sure to find out more about the Tagoras Association Learning Management Systems report.
One of the key challenges our organization faced in growing its online education initiatives was to replace a learning management system that had become badly outdated and out of alignment with our needs. Jeff took us through a focused needs assessment and technology selection process that accounted for the many stakeholder perspectives across our organization. With his guidance and expertise, we were able to identify the right vendor and platform to help us grow our e-learning business significantly in the years to come. I would recommend Jeff and Tagoras to any organization that needs to cut through the confusion, balance a range of stakeholder needs, and select the best possible LMS.

We hired Tagoras to assist ISTH in looking at our existing e-learning platform and evaluating our needs. We had heard of Tagoras from their thought-leadership, presentations at conferences, reports, and recommendations from other organization. Celisa Steele led our project, and she helped us to scope our needs and select a technology partner to take our e-learning efforts forward. Celisa’s expertise and guidance provided enormous support to us and allowed us to tap into expertise we did not have in house, ask the right questions, and qualify our actual needs. Given her and Tagoras’s experience identifying possible partners, crafting a professional RFP and ultimately making the selection has been professional as well as time- and cost- effective and provided an outcome that had full board support. Engaging Tagoras and particularly Celisa has been one of the smartest investments we could have made.
