Pay your bills on time Just like you, your LMS vendor is also running a business. They have their own costs and expenses that they need to pay. When you consistently pay on time and respect agreed-upon conditions, you demonstrate appreciation for their work and you further build their trust.
This comes in handy if you need to call on your vendor for a special request. Not paying your bills on time ultimately hurts your reputation, and can damage the relationship between yourself and your vendor you have probably worked hard to build.
Personalize the relationship and share information In the LMS and eLearning world we talk a lot about personalization. This is no different in a business relationship.
Fostering a Relationship with Your LMS Vendor
Take the time to get to know your vendor and your vendor will do the same for you. You may want to tell them about key personnel changes, or about new ventures that you are embarking on. Be considerate, communicate, and take the time to get to know your vendor and build trust. Be honest and think with humility and humanity In any partnership a bit of humility and humanity can go a long way.
At the end of the day, business dealings are not personal. When mistakes happen or problems arise, remaining positive can preserve partnerships for long-term success. Rather, take the time to talk to, and listen to, your vendor and collaboratively come up with a solution.

Therefore, meet your vendor half-way and work with them to find a solution and continue to build your relationship. Maintain open lines of communication While you may have regular contact with your LMS vendor, this is not necessarily the same thing as having good communication. Make sure to arrange meetings dedicated to measuring the progress of your partnership and, every once and a while, take the time to meet face-to-face. It has become second nature to meet over the phone or use online meeting platforms, but there is something to be said for physically being in the same room with one another.
Also, ask your LMS vendor for their feedback along the way on how they think things might be changed or improved. This often allows you to catch potential problems before they arise. A well-maintained line of communication will avoid misunderstandings and proactively address issues before they become huge problems. Something else to consider… Vendors are experts at what they do and you should take advantage of that. For some others, they see past the shallow depths of the pretty interface, and are mesmerized by the intelligence and ingenuity of the inner working of the LMS platform as they watch different workflows unfold and they get to know the capabilities of the new LMS.
