recently Silkroad implemented a 300% price increase on this product that was barely worth what we were paying for it in the first place. The value you get now is significantly lowered due to the sheer man hours it takes to maintain and facilitate this product.
That you can import outside training files (.csv) instead of having to enter it manually. It has a nice employee facing dashboard - easy to use for everyone but the administrator - in which case its a nightmare.
Doesn't work well with Chrome. Is extremely labor intensive in terms of setting up classes and new employees. Has so many layers, which makes it very complicated. Is not intuitive at all and the customer support is slow to respond.

We use all of their products in unison,and because of that it makes the process all encompassing and easier to use.
The training for the product is too in depth. I do like that they have in depth videos, but they go too much into very basic aspects of the product.
Make sure that you have used it both on the front and back end on a daily basis.

Easy to learn and start launching. I've used it for many assessments, programs and reports used within our organization and it's performed as expected.
The interactive capabilities of SRL are a bit limited. If there are features that support flash - based platofrming and launching, I am unaware. I don't see SRL winning anyone over with it's attractiveness, rather how straightforward it's design is. That being said, it's not so much an intuitive product as it is a learned one. The issue with that is that it can easily be underutilized and appear undervalued, unless one is pointed to the benefits and capabilities of SRL.
