eSSential LMS Software


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.

Be sure that your use cases are fully demonstrated

We are a training provider with hundreds of events each year with 150+ instructors. We also have nearly 100 on-demand courses. We put together very detailed use cases and was assured they could all be accommodated. Not so.

Pros

Customer Support -- very responsive; do a great job of communicating the roadmap and updates as well as keeping the manual up to date.

Cons

pricing model does not allow for courses that have multiple modules - each module of a course is treated as a "seat"; does not accommodate blended learning; does not accommodate equivalencies (ie. letting someone complete a webinar recording if they miss a live session and consider it part of completing the event.); our most frequent helpdesk ticket is from learners who can't find the link to their workbook materials.

Customizable application that brings an advanced LMS solution to business large and small

Pros

Ease of use and ability to customize output and reporting. Dashboard is very user friendly so the training team has the ability to watch key data and can be updated at any time. Communicating with users about completion, status and deadlines is very easy.

Cons

I really don't have a downside to this product. They've done a great job of making the implementation efficient. User learning curve is somewhat mid to high especially if you are transitioning from another application.

It has been a steep learning curve.

We are getting done what we needed.

Pros

It is customizable which is nice. Having our training available 24/7 is great. The ability to start and stop the training works very well.

Cons

Help manual and help ticket system is ugly. We have been struggling to get mobile devices to work and they have not been very helpful. If you have issues with the software you use to create your training you are on your own. We first started with a software they recommended and when experienced a lot of problems we were told they could not help and perhaps we needed to change to something else. I got the feeling they partnered with the first software company and did not test it out. You must use Google Chrome even though it is suppose to be compatible with all systems. Any time you have an issue with IE or other system the answer to the problem is use Chrome.

With no formal education or experience with an LMS, I was able to use this software quickly & easily

Pros

I like that there are so many features. Most things that we have thought of could be completed using eLogic (with some modification if not a specific feature). Those include: 1. Capturing information in a survey in order to complete flight, ground transportation, and overnight rooming needs 2. Creating notifications that include links to resources and videos to welcome new employees 3. Compliance training with e-Signatures to eliminate manual tracking. 4. Multiple Themes so we can provide a site for company partner vendors to register for training sessions but not have access to proprietary content. 5. Content pages are limitless and we have the freedom to customize them anyway we like.

Cons

1. I do not like that when I make a mistake on the admin side, it can be difficult to fix and (can be) visible to end users. That may be all LMS platforms - I'm not sure. 2. Initially, and until very recently (January 2018), the user manual was difficult to navigate and glean the exact steps to take to complete an action. This has been updated and is MUCH improved. I would still like to see added to the manual - fixes for those mistakes I mentioned. 3. The 'stage' or 'sandbox' environment is ok. It is helpful to test a SCORM course, but we add so much so frequently that I find it difficult to keep it up to date enough to use in any other fashion.

This LMS is a workhorse. Has been able to handle anything we have ever needed.

Pros

It's very intuitive and easy to use. Even if there are questions about a certain functionality, there are help videos located on most pages.

Hard to Start Up- Great to Run

The software gave us a great way to interface with members of the public and from Community Health Organizations. We have a separate Learning Management System that was not an option for external users. Having this system to function with our External Partners was vital to our mission of protecting, maintaining, and improving the life of all Minnesotans.

Pros

The software is HIGHLY configurable. You can plug it into almost any business model (including complex ones like State Government) and make it work. Additionally I appreciate the ongoing improvements and stability. Even when eSSential's HQ was getting hit by a hurricane they took steps to ensure no interruption of service.

Cons

It takes a fair amount to get the configuration in place. They had an onboarding team who helped us set up the initial parts but it is difficult to take it to the next operational level. Because the system is so highly configurable, determining which configuration options are right for your organization takes time, and more than a few failed attempts.

Elogic is a great platform for our needs!

Pros

Elogic is always adapting every moth to meet the consumer's needs , the monthly updates are a fantastic way to make sure that the platform is continuously evolving.

Cons

This software is great, but there are areas of slight limitations that we have encountered such as multi-day functions, and CE. Still nothing that we can't work around.

Overall the customer support we have received has been wonderful!

A vehicle to deliver our learning packages, the ability to customize our own look and feel of the platform to meet our expectations as an organization, a high level of customer service.

Pros

The array of functionality it provides to our learners! We have never been able to provide a learning experience like we are now with the LMS.

Cons

Adapting the software to our needs has been a bit of a challenge. I believe this would occur no matter what software we were using. The learning curve of never using a LMS, and then to take our current systems/processes and apply them to how the software is built has required both parties to really think outside of the box. eLogic has been great to work with in terms of understanding our needs and trying to find the best solution for both our organization and theirs.

Best LMS I have ever managed!

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.

Pros

my favorite feature is the bulk loading of ILT

Cons

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.

So Happy to Use eLogic for Our LMS

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!

Student Delivery, and Grading, and Management System

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!

Pros

Wide range of features

Cons

Limited customization options (that can also be a pro!)

LMS Review

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.

Great system for newcomers to an LMS!

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.

Pros

Customer Support team is outstanding
Constant updates to improve the experience

Cons

Can't create assessments within the LMS

Amazing system!

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.

Pros

The system is easy to use, multiple features and very robust reporting capability. I also like the gamification features.

Cons

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!'

End to End User Learning Program - Clinical Software

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

Intuitive and user friendly interface

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.

New user of a great product!!

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!!

A very simple, easy to use learning management system.

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.
