"Xyleme LCMS has saved Rare roughly 30% in expert and translation costs. It has also saved us money in customization, time, and content revisions."
The ROI of single-source blended learning
Xyleme LCMS is the industry’s leading multi-channel, single-source publishing platform. Xyleme eliminates redundancy in content development, minimizes the cost of maintaining large volumes of content, and enables rapid time to market for customized learning products, thereby delivering, time and time again, exceptional ROI to market leaders across a multitude of industries.
Author once and effortlessly publish to any output
Recently published research by the Chapman Alliance illustrates that poor development practices remain prevalent:
"It takes an average of 43 hours to create one hour of average instructor-led training. It takes an additional 49 hours to convert simple PowerPoint from these ILT materials to basic eLearning."
Xyleme eliminates this wasteful process of designing and storing content separately for each individual output format required for a blended learning strategy. Instead, the Xyleme LCMS single-source publishing platform enables a SINGLE production pass of open format-neutral content that can be effortlessly published to any current or future delivery channel.
Edit once and automatically update every blended learning output
Xyleme's single-source solves the insurmountable cost containment challenges associated with having to manage and maintain hundreds of versions of the same content currently required for a blended learning system. With redundant content development, as the volume of content increases, so does the time and expense it takes to update it.
Conversely, Xyleme’s single-source approach creates an environment where a single content change triggers the automatic synchronization of outputs when that content appears. As the volume of learning solutions and content increases, the cost of updates remains minor. This creates a sustainable, repeatable process that produces permanent cost-cutting results and unparalleled efficiency.
A single-source for blended learning takes a context-free, granular approach to content development and sets the foundation for an environment where learning experiences are automatically customized to user requirements.
Put another way, the reusable content created during the initial development pass can be filtered based on user or audience criteria, assembled on demand, and delivered through the most convenient delivery channel. This creates a new paradigm irresistible to the C-suite: a process that yields, at negligible cost, any number of customized training products to meet the critical on-demand learning needs of employees, partners, and customers.
Future proof for tomorrow’s technologies
Xyleme's single-source not only enables effortless reusability, but the open, platform-agnostic XML format leveraged by Xyleme means that your content is ready for any future blended learning channel.
Only a few years ago there was a singular investment in eLearning. Today, while eLearning investment remains strong, we are seeing an explosion in mobile learning technology investments. Xyleme clients are ready for any challenge, with content that can be immediately leveraged through any mobile channel. Their competitors are throwing time and resources away as they re-create their legacy content yet again for mobile output.
