EASY TO USE, ROBUST & SCALABLESkypiom’s Knowledge Management System (KMS) is a NextGen SA Board of People Practices (SABPP) endorsed, cloud-based learning platform that can be implemented with an eLearning, instructor-led and / or blended learning approach.
Skypiom’s Knowledge Management System (KMS) is a modern, cloud-based system that was purposefully designed from the ground up without typical legacy restrictions that make systems inflexible and hard to use. Skypiom has developed and owns the intellectual property, meaning that the KMS is not a white label system. In turn, this means that changes and fluctuations can be addressed swiftly and without protracted involvement of external vendors.
The KMS is deployment ready, easy to integrate and roll out.
While most LMSs merely focus on taking content to the learner, the KMS is poised to support and measure the entire training environment. The KMS packs a myriad of standard and value added functionality that is not commonly found on standard LMSs thus delivering value to the learner and organisation alike.
SYSTEMPurpose built and robust, the Knowledge Management System is underpinned by one of the most powerful and safe server environment in the world, Amazon Web Services (AWS), thereby ensuring consistency and a smooth and superlative user experience.
Hosted on Amazon Web Services, content is always delivered lighting fast via the same technology that Netflix implements: CloudFront CDN. Read More
Access the KMS from any device and operating system. The system applies version appropriate interfaces automatically.
Telephonic, email and ticket support is included at no additional cost. Managed services can also be added, which take care of your learners’ support queries.
Customisable colour scheme, even on a per user basis, including your company’s logo. Google’s Material Design elements yield an intuitive user experience.
The KMS is multi lingual and local time-zone centric. Should your language not be available then this can be added as required.
Learner Profile Retention
Indefinite profile retention of inactive users for statistical and compliance purposes at no additional cost. Read More
ENTERPRISE READYEasy to implement, manage & integrate.
Flexible REST-API that integrates into your Human Capital Management System to ensure a reliable data sync, as mapped and envisaged. Read More
Fragment the KMS into multiple subsidiaries, which are treated as freestanding KMS accounts. Each subsidiary comprises its own users, branding and content, which may be shared between subsidiaries.
Role specific dashboards, including leaderboards and activity levels, provide granular insights throughout.
Single Sign-On (SSO)
Various SSO options, including LDAP and OpenID Connect. SSO integrates with Microsoft Active Directory, Google Apps, ADFS and many more. Read More
Varying and unlimited user hierarchies, or user roles, can be defined directly on the KMS comprising their own permissions and access. Automatically assign roles via single sign-on integration, as required.
Two-Factor Authentication, numerous backups as well as 256-bit encryption ensures that your data is safe and in line with regulatory requirements.
EASY TO MIGRATE TOImport learner data from anywhere, even from existing LMSs.
A learner’s past achievements can originate from any source, meaning that maintaining one version of the truth is near impossible – until now. Skypiom’s “Consolidated Achievement Registry” captures and records a learner’s achievements from just about anywhere.
This functionality even extends to the migration of learner data from an existing LMS, meaning that all previous learner records are maintained, irrespective of the LMS that you are stepping up from.
Migration of learner data can be automated, via Skypiom’s comprehensive API, or alternatively captured manually via the KMS’s front end. Sheer flexibility!
The KMS natively and reliably supports both SCORM as well as common file formats for extended flexibility. There truly is no easier LMS to manage content on - guaranteed!
- Structure course content and outcomes directly on the KMS
- Upload content directly from desktop, Microsoft OneDrive or Dropbox
- Host unlimited content

Facial Recognition / Proctoring Required?
Specifically for the likes of compliance and mandatory training, the KMS can reliably (and ethically) confirm the identity of the assessed learner – without an independent third party verifier or plugin!
Reporting forms the backbone of the KMS. The KMS can deliver truly granular, insightful and powerful reports on a scheduled or on-demand basis with various reporting options.
Skypiom’s “Report Development Kit” allows for genuine custom reporting that extends well beyond the capabilities of a standard report generator. You IT team (or ours, if required) can develop custom reports on the KMS directly via the reporting ecosystem API.
- Rich data reports, even for SCORM
- Compliance & legislative reporting
- Genuine custom reporting options via “Report Development Kit”, whereby you can create custom reports specific to your requirements
- PDF / CSV reports, or extrapolate data via integrated solution
- Various standard reporting options
- On demand or scheduled delivery
The KMS does not just make training easier. It completely changes the game.
CERTIFICATES & OPEN BADGES
You can upload unlimited certificate templates onto the KMS and allow for automatic imprinting of information, including pass criteria, expiration date, serial numbers etc.
Open Badges, visual and verifiable tokens of achievement, can be linked to successfully completed courses and assessments for learners to download and retain upon earning. Learn more about Open Badges.
INFOBOARD & LEADERBOARD
The Infoboard creates a full circle learning experience that allows you to communicate and engage with your audience.
Flexible, intuitive and motivating, Infoboards and Leaderboards should be considered a mainstay when driving gamification.
NEXT LEVEL GAMIFICATION: COMPETE
The COMPETE (Community Participation through Education, Technology and Entertainment) module covers the needs for unrivalled gamification, which includes fast deployment and excellent resonance with all levels of employees, including unskilled workers.
Any smartphone acts as the controller on which answers are selected.
INSTRUCTOR LED TRAINING
The KMS can be deployed as a pure eLearning platform only or alternatively together with a blended approach.
Learners have the flexibility to schedule their own classroom sessions, or alternatively be enrolled into a classroom session, including future dated enrolments. Information captured with classroom sessions includes:
- Start time
- Available seats
- Cost of intervention, including learner specific costs such as S&T, data etc.
Effectively compare eLearning to ILT / classroom training interventions through detailed insights. Standard reporting includes:
- Time & attendance per learner
- Time & attendance per classroom session
- Intervention cost
- Learner assessments, including practical & observational assessments
Note: Note that “classroom sessions” can be used to schedule any external training intervention.
The “Continuous Learning of Co-ordinated Knowledge” (CLOCK) module allows for flexible administration of small snippets of assessing coupled with learning on a daily basis. Learn More
