You may be a start-up with a small workforce now, but what happens when it’s time to expand and move into other markets?

Does the system allow you to include more interactive online training resources to boost engagement in the long run? You don’t want to have to worry about overloading the LMS when you go from 5 to 50 employees who all need just-in-time online training support.
