I have been working with LearningCart for six months assisting with minor updates, but recently my role has expanded. Whenever I feel unsure how to proceed, I call Julie and she helps me not only with what I need to do but understand how it works. Then I had a challenge but found out Julie would be out of town! What to do? So I emailed their ticketing system and Christian called me back the next day. He continued that level of customer service that I'd come to expect from them. Both Julie and Christian are patient, knowledgeable and provide excellent customer support I am confident in providing content to my company website knowing that they are available to provide top-notch level support!
Various ways for customers/students to view/register for classes.
For editing, there is no way to select multiple objects for copying and/or deleting. For scalability purposes, this sometimes makes sense so it's not a deal breaker.
I'm familiar with website editing, but I just needed Julie & Christian to guide me. It is not a software that you can just click around to find your way. I have documentation, but it's better to talk to a real person rather than try to phrase something in an email.

LearningCart has been an excellent option for our nonprofit organization. We needed to build an educational portal that would provide easy access for registered users while at the same time keeping our copyrighted materials secure. The LearningCart staff presented us with a proposal and plan that was customized to our needs and they also provided guidance on how to maximize our use of the tools available. LearningCart is reliable, user-friendly, and has been a valuable resource for our organization.

We are a brand new company focused in online business training. We sell courses to businesses and individuals and LearningCart provides all the tools we need to do that. We can even import SCORM compliant third party courses to provide our clients.
We initially chose a competitor to LearningCart and soon realized our mistake. Later, after a second intense evaluation of many LMS cloud systems, we migrated to LearningCart and have been very pleased! It works, and the support staff is very responsive and fantastic to work with!
Multiple pricing models
Ability to create tests
Would like to have badge support and widgets.
If you don't have any experience with website tools and you have a deadline, you probably want them to create your site for you. Let them handle the look of the site and you just focus on the courses and how they are structured. However, you have time to learn it, it is certainly not too hard. I have a little experience and created everything on our site myself. But I had the time to dedicate to it. The great thing is that when it is completed, you can make changes pretty easily.

Very happy with our decision to use LearningCart! It has been easy to use, very reliable, and has completely automated how we sell training. So much better than our old system was!
Karen from Morrison Chartwells Dietetic Internship
Our website, along with ability to register to apply to our internship was implemented the first of January. Everything has worked exceptionally well, with a customer using the service within a few hours of it going live. We had a few things to learn with the system and there were mechanisms already embedded in it , such as how to credit a customer if needed, and how to make it easier for the credit card to be accepted. The Learning Cart team is very responsive and quick to help ensure things go smoothly with the implementation. They know what customers need and listen to our one-off situations to help us maximize their system.
Trish from The Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute
Our nonprofit organization had an important project in the works, and we had both a timeline and a budget to consider. Basically we knew what we wanted and needed, but we weren't sure how to make it happen. Seeing the LearningCart demo really helped us focus on and develop our plan. The LearningCart team was responsive, knowledgeable, and great to work with at all phases of the project. We finished on schedule and on budget, and we couldn't be more pleased about our experience with LearningCart.
Cherie from Stellaractive
I am an expert in building ecommerce shopping carts. However, when my client came to me with the requirements of integrating an LMS with Ecommerce, I knew that none of the typical solutions would work for their requirements. They had a strict requirement to protect their content and control access to it by IP address. After much research, I was ecstatic to find LearningCart. It managed nearly all of our requirements and where it did not meet our requirements, we found alternative methods to meet our business rules.
The software is well developed and can easily be managed by a client offering learning modules. As a web developer, there were times I wanted a little more control, however, the customer service response for my requests was excellent. I highly recommend LearningCart for both web developers looking for a solution for their clients and for businesses who want to sell learning modules.
Lauri from The Ottawa Rotary Home
When we first started searching for the right LMS it was overwhelming to say the least! Countless hours were spent watching demos and talking to different providers. We looked at some great companies that had fantastic features but were so expensive, we could not even consider them. Others had a great price tag but functionality was lacking. One of our main requirements was to find a system that did not bill according to the number of registered users but rather how many courses were viewed. LearningCart was the perfect balance of what we were looking for. Monthly billing for usage, not registered users. Powerful interface and great price point! The consultant we worked with to get off the ground was responsive and accommodating to our needs. The most impressive thing about LearningCart is the built in e-commerce. I do hope they come out with a more in-depth operational manual in the future and we have some "wish list" features that would like to see added but overall, we are extremely happy with the product and support!
Chris from Christ In Action
Our experience with LearningCart has been wonderful. They have provided us with not only a customized responsive and retina-compatible theme for our website, but they custom-built features and pages per our requests that simplify our media management and provide a robust user-experience. The backend CMS has standard WYSIWYG editor functionality and a nice Blog module, too. At times the WYSIWYG editor does not show things exactly, and sometimes we have to delve into the HTML code some, but we are very pleased with our choice of LearningCart!
David from TrainerTainment
This SCORM centered LMS is a simple to use, yet robust solution for your business. The interface is intuitive and if there was ever a question or issue, support was always quickly forthcoming. The eCommerce feature worked seamlessly with our BrainTree payment gateway. LearningCart is an excellent and affordable solution for businesses small and large.
John from Darkfield Associates
Selecting LearningCart was one of the best technology investments we have ever made. Out of the box their system had all the features we were looking for as well additional functionality and features for us to grow into.
The flexibility of their ecommerce system is amazing and based on our research they seem to have a lot of ecommerce features that other LMS vendors simply don't. Right now we use their system to sell access to both in-person and online training as well as lab equipment and supplies.
The LMS is very easy to use/manage and our customers have been very happy with how simple it is to purchase their courses, immediately launch them, and then download their certificate of completion once they finish.
The admin area is very comprehensive, but still easy to use and we love that we can access and manage everything in one place. Having all our course, customer, content, product, and order information integrated in a single system has really streamlined our operations. It also lets us generate some great reports.
The customer service we have received from LearningCart has been fantastic as well always very quick and thorough responses to any issues/questions.
Looking forward to being long term customers!
Olga from Sequence Wiz
I must admit - when I first selected First Big Step and their platform Learning Cart for my on-line business, I was full of fears - would I be able to update my site myself? would I be able to get reports? would it process my orders smoothly? I am happy to report that my fears where put to rest. Learning cart platform is super easy to use, it gives you all the reporting you need and it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Of course, we've had few hiccups along the way. But the response to those glitches was immediate and they were fixed without headaches or additional costs. To me that's a sign of excellent customer service. And folks at First Big Step are constantly working on improving their platform to accommodate customers' requests. What else can one wish for? Thanks, guys!
Joanne from K2 Knowledge Solutions
Christian at Learning Cart was an amazing person to work with, he was able to help and guide us through the Learning Cart system and development process. His team built us a very flexible Learning Cart website and was very flexible to handle any change requests we sent through within reason. Our site now has the capability to not just purchase 1 license but also multiple licenses which is great for our larger clients.
The ongoing support from Christian has been great with assisting us resolve any issues or answer any questions we have.
I would definitely recommend Learning Cart as a LMS solutions.
