eSSential LMS is a learning management system designed for large and midsize businesses. The system can be deployed on-premise and through a cloud-based software-as-a-service platform. Both deployment methods include access to eSSential LMS’s mobile platform. The system features course authoring, gamification tools and company branding options.
Administrators can create training videos to distribute to users through the eSSential LMS. The system also supports game-based learning. eLogic offers course development services to either build a custom course or repurpose existing training materials, including help with crafting, scripting and directing training videos.
The eSSential LMS can be fully configured to match company branding as well as individual training needs. Administrators can change system colors, menu items, landing pages, content permissions and more. Customized portals can be created for different groups of learners and are controlled from a single admin dashboard. Administrators can also organize user groups, track learning and run reports.

Most LMS systems have started to focus on the gen y or millennials. To this end, they have started creating tools that emphasized learning for them which includes gamification and a social media element. This, however, tends to be more of a "filler" and although it has some value it shouldn't be the selling point for an LMS system. What makes Essential a good system is that it doesn't worry about the bells and whistles and just does the one thing an LMS should do correctly which allows you to create learning paths and job roles across multiple business segments so you can train and track your employees. While this may not appeal to everyone, this goes back to the idea that with any LMS you should look at your organization before you make any purchase.
Going back to the system, however, it's easy to use, integrates easily and it's fairly cheap for a good medium size company. I'd recommend this if you are just entering the LMS game.
easy to use
doesn't really focus on the bells and whistles which may put off some
always do your research per your company needs, most LMS systems go on a contractual 2 year commitment, you don't want to get stuck with a system you can't use.

A well-designed system that offers expansive training options, courses and is relatively easy to implement. It takes some time to learn it in the beginning, but in a long run, it's a great solution that is easily manageable.
Highly recommend to those looking for a modern functional LMS.

The support team took us through several product meetings to get up and running. Product is great, but support puts it over the top.
Product has so much capabilities that if you don't work with it on a regular basis, you will get lost when trying to do some things.
Make sure to look at many LMS systems. They all have similar features, but you will find some are more "out of the box" type systems with not much customization available, and then you find one like eSSential LMS that is fully customizable with a very intuitive interface.
