    Pros

    The platform is user-friendly, has lots of functionalities and capabilities. eFront has a great deal of flexibility, allowing us to customize certain requirements, the look and feel of the web interface, the overall user experience. We use it to enforce the company's policy with compulsory training in several areas, as well as to train new software for a large user base.

    Cons

    It's hard to know how to create reports. In addition, part of the software toolbar is not very user-friendly. Make sure that you are aware of all the costs associated with this software. And in order to install and maintain the system, you must have the knowledge of PHP.

    Pros

    We love the flexibility we had with this product. We had many options on how we can enroll our customer base, either through building individual course tracks or using the curricula for large volumes of customers. We also like the user interface and being able to customize it for our company. It looks good and user friendly for our customers.

    Cons

    Support is sometimes a challenge as they are located in Greece. If we have a support question in the late afternoon, we'll have to wait for a response the next morning and we only have an hour or 2 to be able to talk about it before they go home for the day.

    I believe in having an account rep, someone that you can go to address specific issues, but the account rep should never take the place of a good technical support team who can answer your technical questions with mins., or for more challenging questions within an hour.

    Pros

    This is a great tool for a small start-up company. What I like most about this product is the ability to have single sign-on.

    Cons

    For a much larger company with 1000s of employees, the interface is not very user-friendly compared to other similar software out there.

    Only LMS I found able to achieve the high level of customization we needed for our implementation.

    Pros

    Full source code availability with pro services support make this the most flexible LMS for customized deployments. Able to achieve just about any kind of implementation, data collection, reporting, and UX desired. Incredibly good pricing model for corporate LMS deployments looking to own their final solution.

    Cons

    Implementation and maintenance requires an engineer on staff. Definitely for professionals seeking customizations vs. easy out of the box. Although they have TalentLMS as an option for that if desired.

    Robust and comprehensive platform - expandable by developers and more technical-minded staff, but also easy enough to set up and use out of the box for average level people.

    Pros

    We most like the flexibility and robustness of the software. So many times, with many types of software like this, you find out only in the middle of a project that it won't accomplish everything you want it to. With eFront, it is quite the opposite - you will probably not need everything available, but as your enterprise expands and grows, the feature are there - waiting to be utilized.

    Cons

    The user manual could be a lot more detailed. The software is proprietary, and very dependable, but we find ourselves contacting support many times to figure out where something is or how to customize something - the good news is, their support team is AMAZING and HIGHLY CAPABLE!! Very solid engineers and technical support.

    Overall it has been easy to use and fit our needs to compartmentalize our users quickly. We have not even begun to use half of the features that are available just because the basics are so powerful. The reports can be quickly customized down to a specific user or course and all the way back up to total system logins and course completions.

    Pros

    Ease of course creation
    Flexible content types
    Custom user types
    Notifications by email of course completion and certificates
    Flexible pricing options
    Easily segment department using branches and putting an administrator over each branch
    Customize reports

    Cons

    Automatic updates don't always work
    The notice of an expiring license is displayed in all branches (not just the main level)
    Sometimes the backup is slow (which I believe causes temporary database "errors" that are resolved once the backup is complete)

    Response: Fani, Epignosis LLC

    August 2017

    Hello Joe! We're thrilled to hear that eFrontPro has been helping you to cover your training needs! Our team works hard towards this end. Also, you will be happy to know that with the latest release: - the automatic upgrade process is undergoing a refactor and will become more user friendly (and completely unattended) - License upgrade messages no longer appear in branches - Automatic Backups can be turned off from system settings, and one can perform them manually at a convenient time. Thanks a lot for sharing your feedback, it really helps us improve!

    We have worked with eFront for a number of year. The LMS itself is 'basic' but they have done well to keep up with our feature requests. We have however encountered a number or recent issues with SSO integration where it doesnt work the way that it's supposed to, this is a major issue for us and I'm sure others so I'm hoping they can get it sorted out.

    I use efront to perform examinations at the non-profit I am working for. After two years of using it I can honestly say that is one of the best choices. It is very simple to use without the need for technical knowledge and it has many different options for exam questions covering all that I need.

    Pros

    easy to use, simple user interface, creates random examinations based on given difficulty, automatic evaluation of the test, useful statistics, easy to track student progress and payments

    Cons
