LearningStone Powered Platforms

Are you ready for a dedicated solution? is a cloud-based software as a service (SAAS) which makes it possible to manage an environment of collaboration spaces, authoring and a long list of online functionalities for groups or individuals who learn, collaborate or are guided through processes such as training, coaching, mentoring and more.

By offering a wide array of configuration options, your own design, and of course the powerful and flexible course timeline editor, it’s easy to develop your own brand and services within the cloud based LearningStone architecture.

For some organizations, it can be interesting to consider the possibility of a fully dedicated technology platform when the numbers rise and the need for custom work grows. We call this dedicated solution a “LearningStone Powered Platform”.



"The LearningStone platform has not only been essential for our transition to blended social work, but it has made it possible for our clients to quickly set up their own environments within the platform. All this without any major investment for the software. We haven't had to worry about the technology at all, as it turns out to be very stable and fast. The support has been great and working together very pleasant."

Piet de Groot, director Adsysco, see case below

What is it?

LearningStone and platforms that run the software, offer a system to support blended training, e-learning, collaboration groups, onboarding and other scenarios for groups or individuals.
A LearningStone Powered Platform is a fully modular architecture that makes it possible to not only run a white labeled version of an incredibly powerful system but also to add custom modules, integrations, payment systems, custom reporting and more.
By running your own platform, you run the solution with it’s own site, notification email, back-end dashboard and support tools. The platform is hosted on separate servers, Ips, domain and mailing Ips and more.

Best of both worlds

Internet is an ever-changing world, and custom built applications tend to become costly or simply stop functioning after some time due to maintenance issues. In no time the cost of maintaining a custom-built online application tends to rise due to new demands of browsers, security, new devices, and especially: unexpected usage by the very people you thought you knew. A LearningStone powered platform is the best of both worlds: you have your own platform based on LearningStone technology which is always kept up to date.

Customization and integration

LearningStone is a technology company that can provide custom built components and integration with your back-office systems. We have the experience to build safe and secure connections, develop custom API’s, and more. We can include uptime monitoring of integrations and external applications.

Cost of ownership

We offer our dedicated approach to organizations interested in (re-)selling a service and to heavy users needing to integrate the service in ways our standard cloud service cannot. Or to organizations who want full backend control for fast support or simply have to many users for the standard accounts.

A LearningStone Powered Platform can be used ‘as is’, simply under another name and brand or heavily customized. Though the dedicated approach is initially more expensive than our standard cloud subscriptions, we have made it affordable by standardizing parts of the architecture and with large numbers, the costs drop quickly. And it’s important to take the full cost of ownership into account when considering your own custom solutions.

The pricing starts with a one-time fee of 35,000 Euro / 42,000 USD plus a 3,000 per month fee, includes hosting, backup, updates, and “white glove” support. Ask us for a full project quote.
