    Their sales pitch and communication at first was great. I don't know if the company was maybe going through some change. It didn't work out for us.

    Pros

    Initial customer support and the sales pitch sure sounded great. As we got closer to contract closing, things changed.

    Cons

    lacking desired functionality which was originally promised, customization that was advertised and promised was not there. High startup and implementation cost. We ultimately did not close on the contract and moved on to a different solution.

    Pros

    Our account manager is very responsive and accommodating. There are many reporting options to choose from.

    Cons

    Admin system is not user-friendly and requires more clicks than necessary to navigate and more work than necessary to complete simple tasks. Learner interface is difficult to use and understand. Pulling reports is slow and cumbersome. The system is very limited in what it can do. We currently use this system for learning and performance management and is unreliable on both fronts, for example we currently have to use a back door site to be able to complete fundamentals learning functions such as add learning plans, courses, etc with no resolution eta on a resolution.

    It's easy for staff and most supervisors to use this solution, but the administrative user roles are complicated. It seems like they took pieces of functionality from other systems and smashed them together. I have a gut feeling they are not experts in their code.

    SumTotal seems like a clunky, outdated software to use. User experience is awful and frustrating, but I suppose it at least works.

    Pros

    The product seems robust at a first sight but it is really hard to operate. I like the domain-concept to manage users and descentralize administration.

    Cons

    Not friendly for administrators, unflexible for a few types of activities, lack of full integration between different modules, need to rely on technical staff to setup basic things.

    Pros

    There isn't much to tell, I do not really like this vendor. The system is very powerful, but not user-friendly.

    They are a large company, and have been in some acquisitions, which has changed the system.

    Cons

    Poor customer support. Very inflexible system. They don't tell you, but you can't even create your own performance appraisal form. You have to pay for that to be done each year, even if it is exactly the same as a new year.
