Absorb Anywhere LMS

Absorb worked well for us for a number of years but once we started to push the limits of the software, the company and the product let us down. Support became unresponsive and the product enhancements that we were told were coming never did.

As stated in their own brochure, it is "best suited to highly regulated markets such as Pharmaceuticals, Food Manufacturing, Energy and Utilities and Government and Not-For-Profit." I believe that this software could be used in several other markets and be just as productive. It is well-suited for companies that want to take existing templates and customize them to meet their own needs.

Alternatives Considered

Absorb Anywhere LMS

At the time of selection, we went with Absorb as they were one of the few that could handle online transactions for courses. We are in the process of migrating to Skilljar and will be discontinuing our subscription to Absorb in 2018.

AITalent LMS

We chose AITalent LMS over Absorb's product due to cost constraints. The same could be said of Litmos and Saba. Whereas they might be larger and more established, AITalent LMS did what we needed for a price which we could afford. We would have preferred to have the support that the others offered.

Return on Investment

Absorb Anywhere LMS

  • We were able to lighten the work load on our finance team by moving course purchase processing to the online platform.
  • Learning team was able to reduce the amount of live training and travel.

AITalent LMS

  • It has allowed us to quickly and easily develop an entire curriculum for our employees.
  • To fully take advantage of the value of this tool, we had to dedicate several specialists to dig into the features to learn how to best use them.
  • The ease of which we can edit existing units allows us to use that time in other aspects of our work.
