Attention iMIS Users! CommPartners and ATS Establish Integration between Elevate LMS & iMIS AMS

Attention iMIS Users! CommPartners and ATS Establish Integration between Elevate LMS & iMIS AMS

Are you an iMIS customer looking for a top-notch—fully integrated—learning management system?
Is it important that your members have a seamless experience across your technology platforms?
Are personalized, curated learning tracks an education strategy you wish to pursue?
Is clean, aggregated member data something your association finds valuable?

If you answered yes to any of the aforementioned questions, you’ll be happy to know CommPartners has you covered! We teamed up with Association Technology Solutions to create a robust integration bridge between our award-winning LMS and iMIS AMS. This integration empowers our mutual customers with a unified process for authentication, registration and reporting to optimally leverage the value of both applications.

Here are a few ways the integration will benefit your staff and community:

Friendly User Experience
Members expect seamless online experiences when they engage with their association. A place where single-sign-on is a standard (not a luxury), and an ecosystem of interconnected technologies exists. Our LMS/AMS integration delivers on those expectations, plus so much more. For example, this integration makes it possible for Elevate to curate tailored learning paths for individuals based on information in their iMIS profiles. Talk about the ultimate learning experience!

Centralized Data
Many experts believe data is an organization’s most important asset. While that’s subjective, we can all agree data is very important. Unfortunately, many associations have been collecting/storing data in a variety of repositories, each married to a different technology. We believe it’s OK to store data in a few places, as long as the data ultimately flows back to the AMS. Our iMIS integration ensures critical data about your learners is sent from your Elevate LMS to your iMIS AMS.

Robust Reporting
Piggybacking on the topic of data, Elevate allows you to look at micro and macro layers of critical information. You can monitor a learner’s progress, as well as analyze community trends (e.g. blockbuster courses and superstar users). In short, Elevate provides you with powerful data that can (and should) be used to calibrate your learning portfolio for continued growth and success. For example, once you know who your most engaged learners are, what are you going to do to ensure they remain happy?

Bonus Feature
Elevate also includes a complimentary webinar platform. Learning objects come in many forms, and we encourage you to offer a continuum of programs that appeal to different content areas and learning modalities. After all, a knowledge community is only as good as the resources and learning opportunities found within. To help expand your Elevate learning community with formal web programs and/or informal learning connections, you have a complimentary, fully-integrated webinar tool, EventCenter™.

To learn more about Elevate and our integration with iMIS, please contact Meghan Gowen, Vice President of Sales, at mgowen@commpartners.com.

Elevate Receives Prestigious Award as Top Association Learning Management System (LMS)

(Columbia, MD – Dec. 4, 2016) CommPartners, an award-winning Learning Management System, Web Events, and eLearning provider, is honored to be recognized by Talented Learning as the association community’s second-best LMS provider. Released in 2014, the once newcomer, Elevate, is now standing-out amid the competition, having earned its place as a distinguished frontrunner. Elevate customers describe the platform as one of the sleekest, most flexible and cost-effective solutions, making it the perfect fit for associations of any size and type.

What differentiates Elevate from the rest?

Nimble & Intuitive Infrastructure
Tired of being coerced into static, cookie-cutter layouts with little customization options? Elevate takes an alternate approach and empowers each customer with full latitude of their design and layout specifications. This flexible platform, intact with SSO integration points, allows for parity among all technologies a customer employs, and delivers a seamless, intuitive experience for participants, and staff.

Free Integrated Webinar Tool
Learning objects come in many forms, and CommPartners encourages customers to offer a continuum of programs that appeal to different content areas and learning modalities. After all, a knowledge community is only as good as the resources and learning opportunities found within. To help customers expand their Elevate learning community with formal web programs and/or informal learning connections, CommPartners provides a complimentary, fully-integrated webinar tool, EventCenter™.

Low-Cost Disruptor
CommPartners understands that association professionals have a responsibility to be faithful stewards of their organization’s resources. Indeed, investing in a successful professional education program requires a financial commitment, but costs shouldn’t out-pace efforts and growth. Elevate has all the expected bells and whistles—plus more—with a sensible, sustainable fee structure.

Understanding of Professional Learning

Their unwavering philosophy is straightforward—learning strategy first, and technology second. CommPartners has a diverse group of professionals with backgrounds in instructional design, event management, technology development and customization, association leadership, and client-partner advocacy, providing their customers with unparalleled service, expertise and assurance.

“This unique platform was created in response to the ultimate LMS wish-list of education professionals,” shares Chief Elevate Developer and COO, John Volentine. “We listened to what the community needed, carefully studied learning trends, scanned the competitive environment, and relied on our historical experience to develop and launch our very own Learning Management System. From its initial conception, my goal with Elevate has always been to serve our loyal association community with a robust platform that can help them grow, remain relevant, and generate revenue. I can confidently say we delivered on all counts and look forward to seeing their successes.”
