4 reviewers had the following to say about LMS365's pricing:
We are using it mainly for technical training. And it provides visibility of who is actually participating and completing the ongoing Microsoft training (reporting). We also use it for SOP announcements, providing us with proof of distribution, helping to enforce governance.
Easy to deploy, very affordable, easy to use and the best is the total integration into Microsoft Office 365.
I have not really come across anything that I do not like,and now with the ability to connect to "Flow" you can even add your own features and functions.

LMS365 is an exercise in contrasts. Deployed on Office 365, in SharePoint, traditionally a platform favored by organizations with limited technical resources (granted, O365 has seen incredible gains during the 2020 pandemic). You can deploy the solution simply with minimal licensing. Yet, LMS365 assumes that medium to advanced customers will have extensive Microsoft licensing in Azure Active Directory and Power BI . In addition to posssesing expertise in Power BI and AAD dynamic group management, those types of customers will require Power Automate Cloud experts. Then there is the eLearningForce design philosophy which might be described as inflexible. The product is developed in Europe, and the expectation that you'll have a highly educated workforce with downtime to manage their own training is clear. The interface is incredibly clean, but sometimes to a fault, as options hide themselves. On higher resolutions you might overlook them completely (such as filter options on the Learner List or switches on Course Completion Sets). Customer Support is a bright spot here, with their global team fielding questions quickly and thoroughly. Yet, there isn't much in the way of support for implementing the other tools you'll need. There is only the most basic supporting documentation for using Power Platform with LMS365, which for some customers will be an absolute requirement. Most documentation for extending the platform is developed by customers for customers, such as myself.
The initial cost is low and the integration with Office 365 makes implementation fairly painless. An easy fit for organizations that have basic needs, or medium to advanced users with Azure Active Directory P1 or P2 and Power BI Pro/Premium (Embedded is not included) or E5 Office 365 licenses (plus the expertise in delivery of these solutions as well as SharePoint & Power Automate Cloud flows). This is especially so if you are extensive users of Teams and have additional solutions to integrate into a complete solution. eLearningForce has some truly impressive case stories. eLearningForce make changes frequently, recently moving from 8 to 6 week cycles, and many of these improvements are for Teams integration.
For organizations that have basic AAD and Office 365 implementations that need features of a complete LMS, then LMS365 might be a frustrating choice. There is no audience or smart groups here, group assignment relies on AAD entirely. Exception reporting relies on Power BI, as the system reports are extremely limited (Supervisor is not included in any report, for example). You'll be turning to Power Automate Cloud for workarounds frequently as well. The interaction & cooperation with customers has dropped considerably in recent months. The departure of the COO/co-founder seems to have a correlation in this regard. Gone are UI pilots and the more recent patches lacked previews of UI changes. Bug fixes and 'feature requests' are not delivered in a timely fashion.

We provide numerous trainings and training plans for new and existing employees as well as customers. As we do not have the resources to go for expensive authoring tools or buy SCORM packages, it is super convenient that we can use our existing materials and just create our courses from those. Also, we highly appreciate the O365 integration and all the involved usage benefits (support, login, interfaces, ...)!
Seemlessly integrates into Office 365, which makes user adoption as well as onboarding of your users extremely simple and fast. Also, once you understood how it works, it offers many, many possibilities. With Microsoft Flow being connected those possibilities become even more numerous. LMS365 offers you the ability to keep it simple and just throw your materials in (say: pdf, ppt, videos, ...), or go full e-learning beast mode and create highly visual learning stories in the authoring tool of your choice. The thing I like most about it is, that it isnt just another software silo with new credentials and interface that makes your daily work life harder.
It clearly misses some features currently, but at least they update the software regularly, so many issues get resolved if you just wait a couple of months. The ability to copy/duplicate courses is one thing that really bugs me, as well as the lack of more diverse roles (for example the distinction between administrative and content responsibility) and some rather complicated clickpaths. I'm optimistic they'll overcome their little teething problems though.
