We like the product because it feels like a true "system" (as in "Learning Management System") to us. Other products we looked at felt more like "controlled access to a website" or "content dissemination systems" to us.
We're using the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, so it's a subscription model. The pricing seems very reasonable to us, though the tiered approach (as opposed to a per-user approach) to pricing means at certain points there's a high price for adding "just one more user." Going from 250 to 251 users in the system, for example, bumps the monthly price by 60%.
If you're embarking on the LMS journey for the first time, as we were, keep in mind there's an internal cost associated with maintaining the new system. Even if the software itself is hosted elsewhere, as in this case, there will still be a certain amount of "care and feeding" to do--user management, course management, etc.

I love the simplicity of Inquisiq, it is without a doubt one of my favorite LMS platforms. The user interface is intuitive and easy for new users to understand, so I never had to train them on how to use it. Inquisiq has all of the main features of all standard LMSs without the extra headaches or over-complications. Definitely check it out if you're looking for an easy-to-set-up LMS with great support. Another perk is that the cost was very reasonable compared to other LMSs on the market, which is fantastic. Highly recommended!
No complaints, the Inquisiq team always went above and beyond to help me out. They are patient and always provided rock solid support.
Do your homework! There are TONS of LMS platforms, and many have hidden charges or additional headaches attached to them. Use the Bersin LMS guide and read reviews from current users (via blogs, twitter, etc.).
