Kathy from Epsilon Systems Solutions
We started out with a lot of requirement for the LMS for our client. Greg Wasylik was great to work wtih and helped us define and clarify how the KMI LMS could meet our requirements. The LMS has consistently worked and met our needs for the last 3 years. We continued to add more requirements and each has been met on time and with little or no additional changes. Although we found ourselves on our own in the beginning when we had to use the LMS, we quickly were able to find our way around the product and use it. It does allow us a lot of flexibility and allows us to make many of our own updates...which we prefer. We have a high volume client who use the LMS heavily from December through March and we've never once had downtime on the system. We are currently working with Paul Shannon and appreciate his quick response. We love this LMS!!!
Tiffany from Broadview Networks
From an administrator's perspective, there is definitely a learning curve. But once you get the hang of it, its a great system. Very easy for end-users and great customer service.
Steven from UBTS
We had the unfortunate experience of working with the worst LMS in the world for the last couple of years and their LMS was so bad that it literally almost put us out of business. Due to our custom feature requirements, we couldn't just jump to another LMS to try and correct all the problems.
Anyone who has ever looked around for a new LMS knows just what a herculean task that can be with so many different LMS providers out in the world these days. We looked at dozens and dozens of LMS providers over the course of many months and none of them were able to meet our needs. We didn't want just another big out-of-the-box LMS that we'd have to struggle with to try and make it fit our specific needs. Every LMS provider we looked at ran for the hills when we started spelling out our custom requirements. All except for one that is! We had the good fortune to cross paths with KMI LMS. And thank God we did! They were the ONLY LMS provider out of dozens that were willing to take on our custom LMS project.
Not only was KMI the only LMS that entertained the development of our custom features, they actually were excited by the project and took it to a level that greatly exceeded our expectations. Throughout the entire process of working with everyone at KMI, we were always impressed. In the design phase of the project the KMI team treated our project as if it were their own business. Often times we'd spell out a particular feature and they'd come back with suggestions that we hadn't even considered to make it better in some way. And in the end we ended up with a website/LMS that blew us away! Not only is it visually stunning, but it's rock solid in it's performance and dependability - things we weren't used to after having worked with our previous LMS.
If you're in the market for a new LMS, I can't recommend KMI LMS highly enough. Check with them and see what they have to offer. And while you're there, ask them to take a look at the UBTS website. You'll be jealous when you see it! This is the one LMS that not only delivers on what it promises, but exceeds all expectations!
And should you be looking for a reference (like I did!), don't hesitate to contact me. I'm happy to share the details of my overwhelmingly positive experience with KMI LMS with you.
Lee from Medline University
When I took over the operation of Medline University in 2009, one thing was clear. Our current LMS provider was not adequate for the growth we were expecting. As soon as I chose KMI, our old provider announced that they were shutting down their servers in 30 days. I was able to work with KMI to redesign our site, move all of our assets over to the new platform and open the doors for business in just under 30 days. I don't think any other organization could have done that as flawlessly as KMI.
Since then, they have been a pleasure to work with. We now have over 600,000 users, and the site has never let us down.
Lois from Public Health Foundation
In 2003, TRAIN, the premier Learning Management Network for those responsible for protecting the public¿s health and safety was incepted. With the Public Health Foundation¿s vision and the technology expertise of KMi, TRAIN has been on track and online for more than a decade.
Currently with more than 850,000 registered learners, over 29,000 courses system-wide that have been posted by nearly 4,000 providers of training, TRAIN is being utilized by public health professionals around the world.
From specs and screenshots to building, testing and uploading enhancements to TRAIN, KMi serves as a partner, and not simply a vendor. There is no doubt in our minds the success of TRAIN is due to the following formula:
Vision, Technology and Partnerships
Without these three components, TRAIN would not be the network that it is today¿on track, online!
Dwight from Dowdell Education

KMI offers a variety of eLearning architectures to meet your specific needs and budget . KMI builds highly creative and engaging eLearning training solutions. They deliver on time and within budget KMI¿s LMS has outstanding functionally and can be tailored to meet individual user needs . I have user their LMS to deliver training to tens of thousands of users worldwide. KMI¿s Lms is clearly one of the leading products in the industry.

William from Kibler & Associates, LLC
Since 2006 KMi and Kibler & Associates have partnered to build both an inward and outward system for Medline Industries. The inward facing LMS delivers training with impressive metrics to the employees and managers in nearly 40 distribution centers. The outward-facing LM is open to the public and is very intuitive. It delivers education to nearly 500,000 nurses and medical professionals around the world.
The success we've enjoyed is a result of great service and never accepting the idea that 'good enough is good enough'. Since our first meeting in 2005, KMi and its programmers have improved and\or enhanced their world-class Learning Management System on an almost monthly basis. When a customer wants a feature or function that has not yet been developed, KMi develops it. And I have found that if a customer can 'think it', KMi's programmers can 'do it'.
Ted from Midland Paper, Packaging & Supply
I have worked with KMI for over 8 years and found their training programs to be outstanding. They are easy to use, well accepted by the team members and highly beneficial to the company. The KMI team is well versed in all aspects of operations and builds courses that truly connect with the team members. I have seen a significant improvement in safety, performance and retention since partnering with KMI. I highly recommend this talented team.
Andrew from Siemens Building Technologies
I was able to demo KMI's LMS in an Academy-style format where a library of courses can be made available to clients in their own unique portal. With this technology, you have the ability to parcel up your LMS real estate in just a few clicks and quickly become your own landlord of eLearning courses. Accenture Academy has been using this format for several years, and they have grown their library into a virtual cash machine.
The Global Admin portal is very simple to use with a very intuitive workflow similar to Windows Explorer with checkbox setup options. Imagine creating a folder, setting permissions, and linking to a pre-made document library, and you've just set up a new client. The real power comes from the ability for each client to control the admin functions inherent to an LMS like registering students, assigning training paths, and running reports.
The staff at KMI is very approachable right up to the CEO level. Their communication is very high-touch like a startup, but their knowledge and level of technology indicates a seasoned company. I've seen the term "technologically forward" used to describe KMI, and I couldn't agree more. It's one thing for LMS companies to say they understand the eLearning industry, but the true measurement of forward thinkers are the ones that embrace HTML5 and Tin Can API (xAPI) technology. KMI blends Flash and HTML5 together like peanut butter and jelly... or do you prefer lamb and tuna fish?
In fact, what caught my eye was their series of videos explaining SCORM and Tin Can API in a Flash animation format. KMI understands the concept of capturing the students' attention with humor, simulations, and animations. I feel that all of these concepts are missing from our industry, and it's refreshing to see somebody doing it right.
To finish up with the Academy LMS review, I specifically like the fact that every time I asked if a function could be accomplished, a new set of checkboxes magically appeared the next day in the demo site to activate that feature. Go ahead. Try to stump them. I also like the fact that once the LMS has been set up, I'm given the keys to the kingdom. The Global Admin interface gives me the ability to do everything from one place. Each admin screen is purposeful and powerful.
KMI's Academy technology is worth checking out if you want to make money with your LMS instead of just paying money for the service. Or you could just stay with your old LMS. Good luck with that.
Andrew from BG Group
KMi have developed many courses for BG Group on various topics.
They have made innovative and engaging courses always getting good reviews from our learners.
Many of the courses are mandatory therefore we have had 1000's of accesses with little if any issues.
Working on the development of courses with KMi is refreshing and I have them to be very flexible.
