How To Choose The Right Compliance Training Software

1. Set A Compliance Budget

The first step in your search for the right compliance training platform is, of course, determining a compliance budget. Knowing how much your organization is capable of spending can help you filter out options that are way over your selected budget. Thankfully, the market is abundant with training tools that cover a wide range of price points. Therefore, all you have to do before jumping into a purchase is research the market for the best prices. This way, you know you made the best possible financial choice for your organization.

2. Compile An Essential Features List

In order to choose a compliance training platform, you need to have specific goals and objectives in mind about your compliance plan. Specifically, you need to think about the ways you want to utilize this platform. Once you have done that, you are ready to decide on system requirements. Research the most common compliance training platform features, then compile a list of the ones that would best suit your compliance vision. The more thorough your essential features list is, the easier it will be to narrow down your choices and find the best solution for your organization.

3. Sign Up For A Free Demo

During your search, many different platforms might impress you with their features. However, you can’t know which one is the best fit unless you actually try it out. But don’t worry, this won't dig into your LMS budget. Fortunately, you can sign up for a free demo that gives you the chance to test-drive the tool in the real world. You can use that time to browse the available features and even try out a few scenarios that you and your employees are most likely to experience. In fact, why not compile a team of testers to get their input and see if it's the right system for all your training needs. A free demo even allows you to gauge the user-friendliness of the tool based on your team's tech know-how. Is it easy to navigate and customize? How much support will you need to provide to lower the learning curve?

4. Identify Primary Use Cases

After browsing the demo version of a few training platforms, you can take the testing process a step further. Ask vendors for a use case demonstration, which can really showcase the abilities of the compliance training platform. Prepare a few user scenarios that describe the main functions you want the platform to support. While you’re at it, you can explore the issue of versatility. Can this platform only be used for compliance training, or can it also support sales training and general skill development? Opting for a training platform that offers multiple uses can save you a lot of money and time in the long run.

5. Get Input From Your Team

At some point during your search, you might feel that you have found a compliance training platform that checks all the boxes. However, you shouldn’t commit to a decision without having asked your team for their input. If some of your employees have already tried the demo version of a training platform, you can conduct a survey where they can share their thoughts about what they liked or didn’t like. You could also take advantage of your team’s prior experience. Ask them what features and abilities they would want the compliance training platform to have, or even suggest a platform or vendor they have worked with before.

6. Read Ratings And Reviews

Most websites of compliance training software vendors include client ratings and reviews. Don’t forget to browse these, as they give you valuable insight into the vendor’s customer service and overall performance. Reviews provide information about success stories, ability to deliver on time, vision alignment, quality of services, or hidden costs. Try to find reviews from organizations of a similar size to yours and with equivalent compliance requirements. This way, you can feel more confident in your choice and avoid experiencing buyer’s regret.
