Flexible and very complete LMS

PROS

It stands out for its simplicity of use and its pleasant user interface. It offers great flexibility in the design of learning experiences, adapting them to the characteristics of each training process. It has an electronic signature so that participants can demonstrate that they met the requirements of their training process. Integrates seamlessly with any eLearning content library.

CONS

I consider that this is a platform with a lot of potential, the only thing that I think can be improved is to simplify some processes to make the configuration easier.

eLearn Anywhere

Excellent, the technology itself, and set up, software? I couldn't ask for anything better when it comes to progressive learning and excelling within a business.

PROS

In case you're wondering, the LMS stands for learning management system and this is exactly what it is. I can't tell you how many times I've literally depended on this e-learning software to help jog my business / customer focus point of view. This is a very helpful system, it'sseems almost customized to your cloud-content.

CONS

I only have one issue with this system, and of course it would be pricing. I'm a small business, and I work alone, so I was lucky to receive the free trial that I did because it cost around $12 to $17 (I believe) per active user to operate the system per month. It's a top of the line piece of software however the pricing, surely there's another way?

Reasons for switching to Absorb LMS

I've heard nothing but absolutely great things about absorb LMS. And I'm one of those people that could definitely give prop to what they have to offer. If you can afford the setup price per month then I feel that you could definitely train and educate everyone within a timely manner.

The Standard in Learning Management Systems

In searching for the right LMS for our organization, Absorb was the perfect fit. We have a diverse group of learners and need to provide reporting to auditors multiple times of year. With a small T&D department, Absorb proved to be just the software needed to meet the high expectations of our organization.

PROS

Absorb provides ease of use for all learners regardless of technological skills. Absorb provides the data and reporting that our organization needs.

CONS

Absorb is not as attractive/visually appealing as some of the other systems on the market.

Reasons for switching to Absorb LMS

Thrive was not meeting our needs - reporting was inaccessible for auditors. Customer service was abysmal.

Great Software, Suffers terribly from its customer service.

I rushed into this purchase a little and didnt investigate the level of support that would be offered. In hindsight this would have been a game changer for me as I would have went elsewhere. The software is good, though it doesnt manage blended learning easily which is frustrating. Customer Support is absolutely non existent.

PROS

Good User Interface, Good Course Management. Good sync with BambooHR on most things. Good Learner interface. Good Customisation options.

CONS

Difficult to manage blended learning. Some factors in course management could use improvements. (Managing assessments) Cannot see how many absences from courses that users have. Some issues with how it syncs with Bamboo(overwriting course information) Customer Support is non existent. 10+ days to resolve any issues. Most issues I have to try and resolve myself by resetting and that causes me other issue. Can sometimes be 'buggy' and will introduce random bugs which can be time consuming to fix and result in me resetting the system sync.

Reason for choosing Absorb LMS

A mistaken belief that Absorb would offer everything I needed, whilst I fell for the streamlined sales patter. I asked several questions during the sales chat that were all answered positively. 'Oh yes we can do that that', 'I shouldnt think that will be a problem' etc.. then when the software is installed already, I discover these things arent possible.
