Deemsys Inc’s first LMS project was managed using a web-based project tracking system. This web based project tracking system was made available to all the team members and the developers of Deemsys so that the objectives were defined very clearly and the bugs were identified early on and rectified meticulously making the final product bug-free.

When Deemsys started offering online courses, it was very particular to garner feedback on technical issues from the users. From the customer feedback, the company realized that many of the users were not computer savvy and had difficulty in navigating the LMS portal, even with something as simple as printing the certificate on course completion.
