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.

Pros

easy to use
fairly inexpensive

Cons

doesn't really focus on the bells and whistles which may put off some

Advice to Others

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.

Advice to Others

Highly recommend to those looking for a modern functional LMS.

Likes Best

The support team took us through several product meetings to get up and running. Product is great, but support puts it over the top.

Likes Least

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.

Recommendations

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.
