How we develop LMS software
Accomplished experts will analyze your business processes and IT environment to come up with the most relevant solution to meet your goals. They will help determine project requirements and ensure they are clear, complete, and testable for a high-quality product.
Additionally, our business analysts will conduct competitor research to see what works best in your niche. You will understand your target audience better and build an effective user journey.
At the end of the discovery phase, you will have a clear vision of the LMS you’re building and data to base your development decisions on. Our professionals will make rough estimates for the project timeline and costs. They will also map out the development plan you can use to avoid scope creep and related expenses growth.
At the design stage, our team will define the project’s technical details so you can assess the look of your future LMS and make final decisions. It is when designers, project managers, and technical specialists join the project.
They will work together to create a feasible UI design, identify coding standards to ensure quality, make a list of project tasks, and determine their timelines. Depending on the system complexity, we may create an interactive prototype.
After this phase, the main document you will get is the software requirements specification (SRS). It holds the requirements, standards, and expectations for the final product.
The project team conducts the final testing of the completed LMS and prepares it for launch. Custom development experts ensure that all the preparation work has been done correctly. We see that the product works properly at the stage, there are no functionality issues, and the operating instructions provide the mitigation plan for the end-user in case of a bug.
Then, we ensure the project team implements the programming and coding to all system locations. And finally, we check if you have received the LMS ownership as agreed in the contract.
Once the LMS is deployed, we ensure it continues working at peak performance levels. Our developers issue patches to address changes in your needs, make minor corrections or bring the software up to the updated security standards.
If the Syndicode team was the one to design and build your LMS, we provide 24/7 support during the first month after release. If you experience any issues later, you can request on-demand maintenance services on a time and material basis. You can do so if your LMS was built by a team other than Syndicode as well.

What is LMS?
What is LMS?
A learning management system (LMS) is a framework for handling all aspects of the online learning process. This is a platform where you can store, deliver, and track the usage of your training content.
An LMS is used to make it easier to establish learning objectives, monitor progress toward achieving those objectives, and produce reports for monitoring the learning process. On top of that, an LMS can also handle employee onboarding, compliance, and skill gap analysis.
Having a suitable LMS for a business has several advantages, including cost savings, high training consistency, and confidence in fulfilling regulatory compliance.
Who needs an LMS?
If you struggle to find a training approach that would address all your requirements, LMS software companies can come in handy. First off, an LMS provides the necessary flexibility for employees who are always on the go and can’t clear up space in their calendar for a face-to-face training session.
Next, an LMS will be a savior if your team members tend to waste time searching for answers regarding the company’s products or services. Having all the company-related information in one place will solve the issue.
Finally, an LMS lowers the cost of renting training facilities, paying instructors, and getting trainees to and from training locations. Of course, custom learning management system development costs some money, but it pays off in the long run.
How much does LMS development cost?
It’s impossible to tell how much learning management systems cost since the price depends on many factors. The major constituent is the project length. This, in turn, depends on what exactly you want your LMS to do, what LMS company works on it, and how many resources they use. Put simply, the longer the project, the costlier it will be.
You could cut the time necessary for the development by employing more people. In this case, you should look at the LMS developers’ rates. For instance, mid-level developers in LMS companies will charge about $100–200 per hour in the USA. At the same time, outsourcing from an offshore country, you can pay something between $50–70 per hour of development.
Hosting and third-party services that you want to integrate with your LMS may also add up to the total cost of ownership. Just for reference, in Syndicode, we built custom LMS that cost between $80K–150K. You can get a more precise estimate for your project after consultation.
How long does it take to make an LMS from scratch?
LMS development process consists of several stages: writing a project brief, idea validation, design and prototyping, development, deploying to production, and post-launch support. Each of these steps results in certain deliverables used in the next step.
Thus, the total time needed to build your LMS will vary depending on how clear and feasible your requirements are, how well-researched your target market is, etc. Then there is the learning management system design complexity, whether or not you need a prototype, how heavily your LMS relies on third-party data, what platforms you’re developing for, and some more.
To throw in some numbers from our experience, developing a custom LMS from scratch can take around 4–6 months or more.
Can I integrate a custom LMS with other applications?
You can merge or integrate other software with your LMS to create a collaborative system that will help you work more efficiently. Most pre-built customizable LMS solutions are compatible with a variety of servers and hosting providers, as well as popular CMS like Joomla and MediaWiki.
But if you need more than that, a custom LMS gives you endless integration possibilities. Thus, Syndicode engineers can set up a custom API to connect your LMS with your other business applications. Alternatively, we can enable data download from one software piece into a flat file that will then be uploaded to your LMS.
