    1.55-3.05pm, 14th February 2019, Conference Room 5 (Learning Technologies Conference)
    Buying an LMS is easy. Implementing it and making it work for your organisation is not.

    Envigo needed a flexible, mobile-friendly LMS to replace their multiple existing systems.

    Brian Carlson, CEO and Co-founder, eThink Education
