Bespoke eLearning Platform Development

Custom LMS and Software Development to suit your organisation

Sometimes off-the-shelf is not enough. We can build a learning platform that is unique to you and your goals.

Do I need Bespoke Software Development?

Bespoke software builds can come in many forms. You might need additional features and functionality adding to an existing platform, or you might need a complete build from scratch. Our team of developers are highly skilled in working with eLearning technologies such as xAPI, SCORM, HTML5, as well as developing brand new web applications and platforms.

So, whether you need a full-scale bespoke learning environment, or simply to integrate a new learning platform with your existing systems, get in touch to find out how we can help.

Learner Focussed Environments

A bespoke eLearning platform means you are not constrained by traditional virtual learning environment. As society gradually moves away from the traditional structured learning approach you have the opportunity here to completely rethink what environment you want to build for your learners. Would your learners react well to a more social environment? A more flexible environment? A more responsive environment? You have the freedom. Take a look at our dedicated solutions page User Interface Design for more information about how our UI design team work.

Bespoke Activities

With a bespoke eLearning Platform you have the opportunity to develop your own activities to engage your learners. Make learning fun and competitive to engage your students. Take a look at our Virtual Learning Environment page for more ideas about how to create the best learning environments.

Built To Suit Your Team

Chances are, you don’t just have one group of students. You might have different enrolment dates, different levels, different departments… which might be difficult to track and manage in some basic LMSs.

We can help your team manage these learning groups, in a way that works for your business, minimising manual processes and taking the headache out of admin.

Reporting Metrics & Measuring ROI

Monitoring student activity is key to understanding the return your platform is giving you on investment. Each organisation has their own key performance indicators which are important for understanding how successful the learning has been. We can build into your platform reporting tools for the measurements which are important to you and your business.

Whatever your bespoke platform looks like, you need it to last for many years. We use the latest technology available when developing new systems, so make sure platforms are as future-proof as possible. We also make sure your system can be updated easily, by any future developers who are working on it.


We build with scalability in mind, so you are never limited by the size. You can rest assured that when your business grows, your platform will be ready to grow with you.


Learning platforms often need to communicate with other pieces of software to make sure systems and processes run smoothly. At BuildEmpire, we build bespoke plugins which enable software to communicate and work together without manual input. A plugin works as a bridge between two pieces of software, talking to both and making sure they work smoothly together, e.g. CRM integration with your LMS.

A bespoke plugin might also be a way of automating processes by adding logic to a workflow, e.g. online applications, for a streamlined experience for learners and trainers.


Multitenancy is a way of providing a single instance of software for multiple clients to use, but each client has access only to their own section of the software. This means if you are a training provider you can offer personalised training environments to each of your clients while just having to maintain one piece of software.

Each client is completely ‘boxed off’ from the other, so they get an experience which is tailored for them, enabling their learners to have the personalised, branded, experience they need. Trainers and admins within the organisation can control programmes, set assignments, and monitor learning activity all within their section of the software.

We can build this for you.

Web Applications?

Web Applications is where we can really get creative. Web apps can be used to encourage people to interact with your website, offer support to your staff for an internal system, or offer an alternative elearning experience. If you have an idea, we will build it.

Examples of web applications are:

  • Interactive football game
  • Interview manager tool
  • Social media competition
  • Video subtitle translator
  • Football selector wizard

Totara Learn?

We have found Totara Learn is an excellent platform to build on top of and transform the way your LMS works for you.

We work with the architecture of Totara Learn to re-engineer the LMS and, in some cases, completely transform the learning environment. As a Totara Solutions Partner, we have customised Totara Learn for both corporate and education clients to enhance learning experiences to suit individual organisation needs.


Don’t settle for ‘OK’, we can build something perfect for you.
