BlueVolt allows for lots of customized features in the user interface. It also has growing functionality that allows us to upload, manage, and report courses easily. My favorite feature is being able to use Training Tracks to make accessibility to courses much easier for our end users.
Not much to complain about. It's a great tool. Sometimes we found that it doesn't play as nicely with Captivate as it does with Articulate, but it doesn't keep us from being able to post both kinds of courses online.
It's a fantastic tool built from within the industry and offers a lot of value for those needing a dependable platform.

Great support, easy to use and intuitive, frequent enhancements and updates. Courses are easy to upload and edit, and there are lots of setting options depending on how you want the course to be set up. User management is very easy. We can use SSO with our company intranet.
I can't think of anything negative to say, all my experiences have been positive.
We had a pretty easy conversion to using Blue Volt and have not had any major issues. They support most types of training modules so you shouldn't have any compatibility issues. Everything is really customizable so you should be able to tie it in with almost any existing system or with whatever your company's requirements are.

BlueVolt is a very straight forward LMS, and is easy to use. Whether I am loading content for others or taking courses myself, I have never experienced any issues, and the system is very intuitive.
The vendor is wonderful. For the product, I think better reporting features would be nice.
If you are looking for something easy to use, try this out. It is great for the small to medium sized company.
Shirley from Consolidated Electrical Distributors, Inc.
The product has a great UI and is easy to administer. The Vendor provides great support and is aligned closely to our industry.
There is still some work to be done on the Administrative side which includes improving the overall UI, reports and emails.
In evaluating software like this, I highly recommend others consider BlueVolt if they are in the Distribution industry (especially Electrical, Plumbing, Lighting) as other companies in this industry have BlueVolt Universities. This makes sharing content between BlueVolt Universities easier. The BlueVolt product itself provides everything needed in an LMS, is easy to use and is continually improved. Lastly, BlueVolt provides top notch customer service that you can always count on, with a very talented team that is always ready to help.
