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.
Bruce from Worley
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.

Recently switched to eLogic after 9 years with another vendor. The experience has been great. The only thing eLogic does better than building a great LMS manages the processes of implementation, launch, and continued support.
I reviewed 100+ LMS platforms over the course of a three-year search for my company. I narrowed that down to 5 for my manager and I to review. We then cut it to 3 for our team to review together. We selected eLogic. It has been a year and we are very satisfied.
We are in Phase 1 of our deployment and are only using about a third of the platform's functionality. As the primary admin, I can't wait to roll out everything to our learners I know they'll be happy with the work we put into their learning experience.
In the end, I do not think this is a more robust LMS platform on the market for the price. I know there is no better support structure.
my favorite feature is the bulk loading of ILT
If had to be picky there are a lot of screens to go through from creating a class/course to having it ready to registration/use.
Keep the manual bookmarked. The platform is expensive and the release features and functionality and a breakneck pace. It is fantastic to have such a responsive vendor development team.
Linda from Digital Federal Credit Union
The eLogic LMS came with very good support, and a solid implementation plan. They are very receptive to ideas for improvement to an already great product. We plan to roll out gamification this year, and can't wait!

From the first meeting, I knew eLogic would be a good fit for us. Mark Anderson is an experienced, hands-on CEO. His team is comprised of really smart, talented people who not honor their deadlines and agreements, they are also fun to work with!
Wide range of features
Limited customization options (that can also be a pro!)
The eLogic team is always open to suggestions for enhancements. Don't be shy!
Corlis from Didlake
From start to finish, my experience with every facet of instituting the eLogic LMS system was efficient, informative, and engaging. After implementation, the support has always been helpful, information, friendly, and efficient; even with simple questions.

If you are looking for an e-commerce platform for an LMS, eLogic really excels in this regard!
The customer support team is remarkable! Their team does an outstanding job communicating when there is going to be an update to the system (which is quite often). While there are certain features that I wish were available or worked in a different way... I can say without question that the eLogic team is constantly improving the user experience in a meaningful way. You may find a better LMS out there today, but I don't think it will be very long before eLogic is mentioned more regularly with the top LMS providers in the Industry! My money is on them in the long run.
Customer Support team is outstanding
Constant updates to improve the experience
Can't create assessments within the LMS
they are a worthy investment!

I have been with E-Logic for over a year now. The company is fantastic to deal with! The system is easy to use, and have countless robust features that meet my needs. I receive countless compliments about the system from our brokers who use the system.
The system is easy to use, multiple features and very robust reporting capability. I also like the gamification features.
It would be great if they had an app, but I believe it is in the works. Other than that. It is a 'best in the class system!'
My experience with E-Logic was amazing! They take the time to listen to ensure that the system is implemented soundly. The VP of Operations was great to work with, and my sales rep has been amazing to deal with since day one!
Tim from RxAnte
As VP of Service Product Management at Sage Healthcare, I contracted with eLogic to create a comprehensive e-learning program designed to fullly enable our end users to productively engage our Practice Management and Electronic Medical record system and become self-sustaining customers. Our program facilitated a 60% reduction in deployment costs and a 37% increase in customer satisfaction.
I went on to use elogic at NaviNet with similar results. Mark and his team are competent and professional at all times. They are a true pleasure as work partners. I'm looking forward to using them again here at RxAnte
Kathy from Sage
Our company has used the eSSential LMS for 7 years. We first started with just 300 users on the system, and within a few months extended it to 3,000 employees across North America. Throughout that time, eLogic consistently demonstrated the same level of quality and commitment to our account. With that said, we are probably one of their smaller accounts, but I have never felt like our business was not important to eLogic.
Their platform is easy to navigate, both for end users and administrators. When we have an issue or a question, the process for getting it resolved is easy - and resolution time is very prompt. We have been pleased with our partnership over the years.
Dave from State National Co.
We chose eLogic over several others in our move away from Moodle. We are a small company <500 and eLogic was a serious upgrade over Moodle at a reasonable price. Their implementation and sales process is very open and honest. We have used their support portal several times in our ramp up and they do not miss a beat on getting back to you same day. If Peoplesoft is too much and Moodle is too little, eLogic is who you should be working with!!
David from Comporium Communications
As we were looking into a learning management system for training and record keeping, elogic stood out from the other vendors from the first time we had contact with them. Installation and training were a breeze; with the help of their friendly personnel. We did have a small issue with a browser, but it was corrected quickly.
Robert from Brier Greives Agency
Found the entire experience first class.
Alex from Comporium Communications
Our company has never had or used a LMS before elogic. The system is easy to navigate. The team at elogic has made the implementation process smooth as silk. As an administrator, elogic has made the courses, training sessions, basically anything you want to incorporate into the system so easy to upload. I have no cons with this LMS. For example, we just had a logo change for our name. It was just a quick import of the new logo into the LMS and placed it where the old logo was. It took less than one minute to make the change. The system is not only admin friendly, but it is also user friendly. I would recommend this LMS to anyone looking to get one or if you are looking for an upgrade to a better system. Elogic is the best choice to make.
Carla from DHI Mortgage
The pros of the system are customization, ability to use single sign-on, and our IT load of users that takes place nightly which eliminates a lot of manual entry and updates.
I would consider the main con to be figuring out a lot of the specific processes of our use by trial and error, using the online manual, and e-mailing the support desk. Although the latter two are helpful, the general process was considerably more time consuming than I would have liked. If eLogic offered an additional level of customized training per the customers' specific use; we would have certainly taken advantage of this. I imagine that many customers have employees dedicated to the implementation process but that just wasn't possible with our resources.
Peggy from Corridor
Overall elogic is meeting or exceeding our expectations. Our clients are finding it is very easy to use and to manage. In general we have not had any specific issues arise. What we have stumbled on has been our understanding of how functionality works and Customer Support has been great in assisting us and getting us to where we need to be. They are very responsive and extremely helpful.
I do believe the "Standard" report selections could be stronger with some additional features and reports, but elogic offers the Ad Hoc reporting tool that assists with this need.
Josh from Brady Services
The implementation training to use the LMS has been great. The instructor, Tommi DeMasi, was thorough and patient. I have to say that the learning curve is steep and it will take some time using the software to become proficient. There are some parts of the LMS, like loading content and making it available, that are not intuitive, and those processes are going to require some time to become familiar with. However, the customer support has been phenomenal and we're very excited to be partners with eLogic.
Des from The Corridor Group
Top notch experience throughout with eLogic. A few key points:
- We went through a long and extensive selection process, "boiling the ocean" of 500+ options and eLogic came out on top. Throughout the process, they were the most knowledgeable, flexible, responsive and earnest in wanting to work with us.
- Contracting/negotiating process was very straightforward, fee structure was clear and simple, and eLogic was very flexible to some of our needs for timing of the implementation.
- The eSSential product is exactly what we were told it was - and more. The technology foundation is very solid - a key requirement for our business.
- Implementation and go-live was among the best I have experienced across any IT-based vendor program in my 25+ year career, including those where I was on eLogic's side of the table. Responsiveness and knowledge were key to our success, and eLogic always brought their "A game" - and still are doing so every day!
Julian from Presbyterian Medical Services
Having been involved with e-learning for the past decade I've administed a few systems. eLogic's eSSential LMS is among the best, if not the best, of all the systems I've used. The administrator tools are powerful yet easy to learn and use. Whenever I do run into an issue, their customer service staff is top-notch and quick to respond.
LaJuan from MetLife
eSSentials is very easy to use. The LMS is completing customizable based on our needs. Almost any SCORM compliant course can be placed into the LMS. Very little technical expertise is required.
Shamekia from MHMRA of Harris County
The customer service is top notch! Some of the features are cumbersome though (ex: reports).
Kathryn from CHCA
The number one compliment from users is the ease of use and functionality. When they log in they see their dashboard and can easily navigate to courses. eLogic is consistently making things better with enhancements that actually work ! Most vendors do not go out of their way to improve their product but rather make the customer have to beg or pay extra to get what they need. eLogic consistently improves the functionality and communicates the changes.
