8x8 Virtual Office Enterprise Suite

Some of the best scenarios are working remotely. It really allows you to get everything you need out of an office phone right from your computer/cell without any need for hardware. It's not great when you've already plugged in a dialer of some sort, or software like Outreach.io that has some overlap in features (click to dial, especially).

Customizing interactions is one of its strongest points. Again, if you can dream up the interaction, there is probably a way to use triggers, variables, conditions and states to achieve it. Although the initial learning curve is a little steep, if you put in the time, you can really get the power out of the tool to accomplish some really great things! Their community is a great place to shorten the learning curve quickly.

  • If you can dream it, you can most likely create it in this product. It is very flexible and intuitive.
  • By using triggers, variables, and states, you have the ability to harness design capabilities that would otherwise require a high level of programming expertise.
  • Integrating audio, video and animations into a module/course is very simple.
  • Its interface is very easy to use and understand.

Cons

  • Integration with Insidesales/Salesforce/Outreach/etc.
  • RAM usage could be lower
  • Cross platform?

  • Learning the more advanced features of Storyline does take some time. When I was learning Storyline, I was able to set aside about 45 minutes at the beginning of each day to watch 1 or 2 tutorial videos and then practice what I had just learned. I got up to speed very quickly this way! And once you have some advanced skills with Storyline, that's where the fun really begins!
  • Some of the output options aren't ideal. For example, you can publish an activity to a DVD, but the output is an exe file, which some computers won't run. Also the Word doc output is fairly terrible looking. (Although, if you have a little skill with Word styles, you can easily fit it up.)

It goes without saying that Artculate's products are the easiest to use and offer a great deal of functions with flexibility. Once an eLearning author uses the product it becomes tempting to not use other methods, but one would be wise not to limit him or herself to a single learning authoring platform. On the other hand, if given a single choice of a tool for rapid eLearning development, Articulate's Storyline would be a top choice.

It does what we need it to. We create computer based learning and occasionally have someone use the tool via a tablet. It works great for that! If you were going to use it on a smartphone, I am not sure it would be the best choice. Since most formal eLearning courses are better suited to a larger screen then I would rate it highly every time.

The Articulate user community (including staff and users) is amazing. There are so many people willing to help each other and offer advice. You can tell people are passionate about this software and supporting new users who are struggling. When you're a new user, it really helps to know you're not alone if you get stuck.

I love the fact that both a demonstration AND text version of the tutorials are available. Our firewall was blocking the demos until I requested my company allow them! Having the text version available still enabled me to learn from the tutorials. They are very well done and informative, and there is a tutorial for just about anything you need to learn to do with Storyline. I have always been more than satisfied with the support and training available to us for all Articulate products and I love the community!

Alternatives Considered

I had no control over this but we are using 8x8 virtual office enterprise suite to get some of the functionality, mostly click to dial and contact handling. It's not exactly a competitor, but if you're looking for an easy way to utilize your company phone system remotely, I've had a great experience, including working from home for an entire month on it.

Articulate Storyline is head and shoulders above the other tools on the market. It truly combines the features of most rapid e-Learning tools on the market in one easy-to-use tool. And, the Articulate community is just a bonus addition...no other company's support can compare to what Articulate provides.

It is easy to train new users and manage content. Being able to import older projects and PPT files makes it very easy to use for a lot of "moonlighters" in our department.

Return on Investment

  • I've reached more leads and contacts than before because I can text to set appointments
No photo available
  • No need to use expensive compliance eLearning from suppliers as off-the-shelf items - which means we save money (saved approximately £60,000 in 2014). Also no need to pay externally for any re-work required as changes are made in-house.
  • Sales course for renewals has improved renewal ratios by 10% in 3 months.
  • Employees see RELEVANT eLearning examples, with company specific examples/scenarios and feedback shows that engagement and completion rates are 100% in last 3 years.
