Larmer Brown Platform - Managed Hosting Service

The Larmer Brown Platform Managed Hosting Service exceeds the offerings within a typical managed hosting service. In addition to a broad scope of technical services, we offer a portfolio of consultancy services designed to ensure you gain the most from your investment in the Larmer Brown Platform.

Larmer Brown Content Authoring Suite

Our Managed Hosting Service includes the Larmer Brown Content Authoring Suite, a comprehensive content development platform offering a collaborative, multi-author environment. Installation and configuration includes security, roles and permissions.

A ‘Light LMS’ tracks and reports Learner activity and achievement and our Managed Hosting Service ensures that Learners have access to learning and support by job role, if required. In addition, Training Administrators can access realtime reports 24/7.

The Larmer Brown Platform, including the ‘Light LMS’ can be customised to reflect your corporate branding, training strategy and deployment plan.

Technical Services

When the Larmer Brown Platform is updated, we provide in-depth demonstrations of the new features, enabling you to make an informed decision about if and when to upgrade. Should you decide to upgrade, this work is included within your Hosting Agreement, as is the application of any Service Packs or Bug fixes. Technical Support is also included.


Authors and Learners can access the Larmer Brown Platform via several different secure forms of authentication. All user activity can be tracked and reported.
