Percepium LMS has had a major upgrade to 6.0 and an update to 6.0.5. The enhancements included in these updates to the learning management system are delivering some powerful new features and functions for our customers around the world. Below is just a short summary of the LMS enhancements. If you would like a comprehensive Release Notes document, please get in touch using our contact details on this website.
Some of the most exciting enhancements deliver a far better user experience for our LMS customers.
The Forum has been completely redesigned and includes shortcuts to make finding posts easier. We also added a new HTML editor, attachments can be added to posts and quoted posts are much easier to follow. Forum moderators can lock a forum thread. Forums can be linked to a specific learning activity or locally to a specific activity.
The Calendar now has agenda and timeline views. Development Plan and Competency Assessments are now shown as events in the Calendar making it much easier for users to stay on top of their own learning and development. Clicking on an item in the Calendar takes a user directly to the Activity.
Percepium has a Learning Journal that now supports file attachments to users’ Journal entries.
The News feature also supports file attachments and includes our new HTML editor.
Search functionality has been enhanced with users having the ability to search in catalogues directly after logging in to the LMS. If your LMS has multiple Catalogs, users can select from a drop-down to search specific Catalogs.
Our current LMS customers always comment on how flexible the Hubs feature is to deliver user experiences that are individualised and relevant to users. We have added more Hubs to our LMS so that users may be offered more tools and features.
Percepium LMS has added four reports that virtually every LMS customer will use. We have added three analytics reports for Competency Profiles and one Organisation Learning Activity Status report.
A minor improvement but one that makes Percepium LMS more fun for users is the rolling dashboard banners. These banner images can be set to timer and can be very effective for mass communication, inspiration and other purposes.
Percepium LMS is an enterprise Learning Management System that can support a large number of domains within the one installation. The Percepium LMS excels at offering many options for user experience, learning delivery and user management.

According to CareerBuilder.com, 21% of employees plan on finding a new job in 2014. Are you ready to lose 1 out of 5 of your employees? I don’t think so because you know that turnover is costly. There are the obvious costs – hiring, interviewing, and training costs. And there are the less obvious cost of turnover such as running your business under staffed, or losing top talent and even worse losing talent to your competition. So, it makes sense that every company needs to take action to do what they can to minimize turnover. And one way to do this is through development.
Studies show that employees who are offered career development and general development opportunities are more likely to stay with their organizations and stay for a longer period of time. In fact, according to a study conducted by Kenexa 30% of people leave due to lack of professional development.
But that is only half of the equation. What about your managers? The old saying is “employees join organizations and quit their boss”. This puts the focus on your management development process. In fact, a recent Forbes study showed that the one of the top three drivers of turnover was boss performance. Have you trained your managers and developed their capabilities to treat employees as the valuable resource they are?
On August 12 [11am AEST], we will be delivering a webinar where we will talk about why retention is important, how employee development and management development can lower turnover. Additionally, we will be showing some solutions you can use to drive retention through development. This will be a highly interactive session. So, please come prepared to share your employee and management development stories that led to higher retention rates. The session is going to be so interactive, instead of calling this a webinar, maybe we should call it a “Discuss-inar”!
Hope to see you on August 12! Space is limited so please register by email to : RSVP Email You will receive a confirmation email.
