Always up to date with the imc Learning Suite product innovation

At the core of imc's innovation philosophy is its commitment to invest approximately 25% of the Learning Suite revenue back into research and development. The core outcome of this investment sees imc customers benefit in the form of frequent innovation packs that are made available four times per year.


Our innovation packs introduce a range of new features, performance updates, and enhancements to existing functions. The frequency of the updates helps ensure imc remains at the forefront of learning technology and that our customers are future-proofed with the latest innovations in technology-supported learning. In addition to innovation packs, standard patches deliver minor updates and fixes every four to six weeks.

imc Learning Suite product innovation

Standard innovation patch cycle

Our innovations are not only driven by state-of-the-art research findings on process and tool optimisation within the L&D field, but also by customers' direct requests that we collect via different communication channels. This feedback helps us ensure that our products adapt to industry developments and emerging needs.



Unlike many other enterprise LMS providers, the imc Product Management team reviews customers' requests and selects those that will then become new features of the imc Learning Suite in one of its future innovation packs, thus allowing customers to help shape the standard product while reducing customisation maintenance costs.



One thing is for sure when partnering with imc: the knowledge that imc will never rest on laurels of past performance and will continue to work with its customers globally to evolve its solutions and meet the real-life learning requirements of tomorrow.

Innovation Pack v. 14.17

Innovation Pack 14.17 introduces many enhancements with highlights including updates to the Power-BI Learning Analytics add-on, an easy media uploader direct within Channels and a brand-new multi-step approval process with unlimited steps. Click below to discover more details on the key highlights.

Until IP17, the imc Learning Suite had supported up to two levels of approval for training self-enrolment requests, e.g. typically the requestee's supervisor and the training administrator. In the case of some high-stakes training this would often lead to additional approval steps being handled offline, without the history being tracked in the imc Learning Suite. Depending on the customer, a comprehensive multi-step approval can require approvals from a direct supervisor, an area manager, a rostering administrator, and cost administrator prior to a final approval by the training administrator.


Values delivered

  • Configure multiple approval steps for enrolment requests with the multi-step Approval Workflow Manager.
  • Pre-define approval reasons for each single step to speed up Approval or Decline
  • See the history of all steps in the multi-step approval process.
  • Conduct complete approval process within the LMS.


  • Easy creation of any number of workflow steps.
  • Decision support by providing approval history including reasons.
  • Quick approval and full control of approval workflow.

Other important improvements

Each innovation pack contains many smaller innovations and here are some of the more important updates contained in 14.17:



  • Channels update to allow easy media upload directly in the Channel without back-end access to the Media library.
  • Learning Analytics (Power BI), new Feedback Evaluation reports and improved self-service.
  • Updates to Learning Path and Course
  • My Staff update for Supervisors to have more options available and better visibility of their staff in the catalogue views.

  • Update of description areas to Ck Editor version 4 which has many formatting benefits.
  • Simplified staff enrolment workflow for managers.
  • The number of Learning path notification options have been increased significantly.
  • The Access rights restriction functionalities have been improved to allow an even more granular group specification of rights for tasks such as editing or creating courses.
  • Pre-booking notifications have been enhanced, so that course administrators can send even more detailed information about the courses to the learners.
  • Via the new MS Exchange integration, it is now possible in the iLS resource manager to view availability of rooms or spaces listed in a company-wide resource management system in addition to those already added into the imc Learning Suite.
