Today we reach a significant milestone as we release UpsideLMS Version 4.0 – a comprehensive, fully-featured learning management system delivered on a robust, scalable and reliable architecture. It’s extremely satisfying for me personally as the chief architect of the system since its first release. Here I am sharing a quick overview of what’s new in Version 4.0 and I encourage you to take a tour OR a trial and let me know of your thoughts on the latest version of our product.
UpsideLMS Version 4.0 comes at an important time in the UpsideLMS product lifecycle; as it paves the way for the LMS to move in a direction aligned with the changing world of learning and learning management systems themselves. UpsideLMS Version 4.0 now includes modules for advanced collaboration and an integrated social networking framework.
Version 4.0 is a direct result of valuable feedback from our customers and inputs from our internal teams including INP (Innovation and New Projects) and Marketing & Sales teams. This version offers a newer and better user interface, enriching user experience, and includes new functional components to increase the scope of activities the LMS manages.

Another key aspect of UpsideLMS Version 4.0 is that it now comes in two variants (that run on the same robust and scalable architecture)– UpsideLMS Professional and UpsideLMS Enterprise.
UpsideLMS Professional is designed and packaged specifically for SMBs and Training companies where the need for an LMS is to efficiently manage learning data, large number and churn of users and the need to quickly configure training with a high degree of flexibility. Additionally, it meets the needs of training companies for an easy way to manage multiple customers through a single system that include licensing and branding control and to have an eCommerce module.
UpsideLMS Enterprise is for large enterprises that need the LMS to manage learning within the context of an organizational hierarchy, and tight links to a competency framework; they also tend to require solutions that are scalable.
