When looking for an appropriate learning management system (LMS) Matrimony.com had several key requirements which needed to be addressed. First and foremost, they wanted a robust, scalable learning platform available to a large group of users. This is so employees from around the country can access the same learning materials via a single point of access. With Pan India spread of its workspaces, it would be difficult to control the quality of training at individual locations. Hence singular platform that can be used to train all users centrally and control the quality of training.
Finally, Matrimony.com wanted to deploy a LMS platform that can consume less traffic and be cost-effective while achieving high level of return. ChapterVitamins developed bespoke LMS portal for Matrimony.com. Initial challenge was to decentralize data servers to make it bandwidth efficient. It took considerable effort but we managed it with 13 local servers where data were stored locally. Upskilling users with certifications helped users learn new skills on LMS portal. A social platform integrated in LMS helped users engage with each other on professional level, share community events pics, promote healthy initiatives like mission 10K steps challenge.
