Litmos is by far the best LMS we have use. With it we can easily manage hundreds of users, track their progress, and create reports from their activity. The user interface is simple yet is feature packed on both the admin and learner side. The interface is customizable with custom theme colors, logos, and images, so we could completely re-brand it. We were looking for an LMS that could be sold through an eCommerce solution and they offer that as well as give the added functionality of allowing the usage of Shopify. We needed to be able to set up courses that needed to be taken in a strict order and they have a solution called "Learning Paths" just for that very need. The issues we had were minor and were alleviated by Litmos's support staff very quickly, usually the same day. The pricing is the best out of everything we looked at for the features and they were willing to negotiate prices beyond their standard pricing. There is built in testing/quizzing/survey authoring tools but you can pair you own authoring tools with it by uploading files to the system. We use SCORM compliant authoring tools and they are imported without any problems. We manage a few teams as well and Litmos accommodates this exceptionally well by allowing teams, or groups of users, to be bundled together. Overall, a great product that has a generous trial period so there is nothing to lose.

Pros

Very affordable, many features are included in low subscription levels which are great compared to the competitors, great support staff, easy to use, allows for many different file types to be imported, includes a good eCommerce solution as well as many plugins for external management.

Cons

If you need to move people between teams, there is no way to do so. You will need to create a new user in the destination with the same credentials and same course assignments, and then delete that user from the source. The interface customization requires a bit of CSS if you really want to go beyond simply modifying colors. The servers tend to struggle some with very large files if users are international as we received some complaints of excessive buffering from users in Japan. That was at the very extreme side and was to be expected.

Advice to Others

Try Litmos. It has a generous trial period with access to all features and full support. If you need to be customized subscription models, contact Litmos and they will help you customize the LMS and pricing. You will be surprised with the amount and quality of the features of the LMS for the low price, compared to other providers.

Overall it is a very well built system with the functionality necessary for the tasks.

Pros

The user functions are easy to learn and the creation of the substance has a wide range of adaptable tools.

Cons

The reporting section of the data on the back end is a bit cumbersome. The flexibility with the reports is limited and not as free to customize as I would have liked.

I worked with our department to research and test different LMS programs and Litmos was definitely our top choice. We are also working with a third party web developer who is implementing the more technical details of how the LMS works with our current website and he independently suggested Litmos after reviewing our list of possibilities.

Litmos provided us the most features while still staying within our budget. We were most impressed by the user interface which was simple, modern, and easy to read while offering the most customizable options. However, customizing more than color options requires a good knowledge and understanding of web design. Creating and uploading course content is very simple and provides many options to create content within Litmos or upload your own SCORM content. There is no built-in E-Commerce option, but has a great integration with Shopify that would allow you to sell your courses if necessary. I wish there was a way to create notifications within the system. If you complete a course or gain an achievement, you have to browse through the different pages to find your results.

Since we are still implementing the LMS, we have not been able to really experience all of the bugs that will inevitably show up, but for now it has been great. Our program is a little unique in how it's set up so we are facing some challenges in how to adapt the Litmos services, but they still provided the most options whereas other Learning Management Systems just did not have anything to offer.

Pros

Great customer service, informative yet simple interface, multiple integrations that work well.

Cons

Missing "Teacher" role that allows outside trainers to grade assignments without full admin access. Mobile app looks great but mobile website is lacking. You need a good understanding of HTML/CSS/Code if you want more customization than just color changes. Lack of notifications within the system.

We just purchased this product and are still in the process of learning the functionality. Our developer is also in the middle of integrating it with th salesforce. So we are still in the learning stages of everything. But so far the lms side is intuitive and easy to manage.

Pros

Ease of use and all the features. It's also very clean lookin and the user facing page is fun and inviting.

Cons

The only con so far were the sales people. Ours was very pushy and though helpful, it was very clear that he wanted to close the deal, which got annoying. When you're making a big purchase for the organization you want to be sure on the product and I probably took longer than our sales rep wanted.

After a comprehensive search for a Learning Management System, our company selected Litmos. It combined the features we needed with a great user interface and an excellent price point. We began implementation in august and are already seeing significant benefits to our organization by December. The most exciting thing has been the unsolicited praise provided by members of our sales team.

Pros

Ease of use and affordability

Cons

None so far.

Definitely consider Litmos if you are evaluating an LMS platform1

Two things, actually
1) It is insanely adaptable without being difficult to lean to use. I can upload any type of learning without needing help.
2) In a field of huge prices, they were not only inexpensive, but gave us a discount for being non-profit, and only charge based on MONTHLY logins. I can't stress this enough: they were the only vendor willing to recognize some of us don't need to train a person every single month. Some of my learners will login a lot. Others I will train and set free till next year.

Their website (not the platform but the sales website) is not the easiest to navigate. I think they really prefer you just talk to your contact instead of investigating things on your own.

Recommendations

Consider what you will be doing with it, and talk to anyone else who might want to use it. I went with Litmos because they adapt to any needs. Many will only offer you their programming, or insist on huge initial setup fees. Litmos adapts to all kinds of content and adapts their pricing to all kinds of learning paths.

The maximum PowerPoint size is pretty low. In order to create an effective PowerPoint, you have to upload more than one.

Recommendations

Get the most use out of your sandbox trial. Treat it as if you already purchased the product. Test out each feature that your company would find valuable and test out the others and see how they can help your company. It's hard to see how a software would perform with your company without a small trial.

Make sure you ask questions about how support is handled but also about how trainings will show once uploaded to the system. PowerPoint trainings and video do great, but PDF files seem to get condensed and it becomes difficult to read.
