Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Docebo LMS

If you need to get up and running quickly with an online training system, are okay with mediocre functionality, and want to use course content from their marketplace, Docebo is a good option. If you want a more powerful system and good support, then I do not recommend Docebo.

  • Ease-of-use: very friendly, intuitive, simple processes for administration.
  • Flexible and simple content publishing: easy to manage learning plans, upload learning content in several formats, assessment/testing creation/control.
  • Modular features: allow to activate/dactivate features, some of them are paid. Very useful to set up the platform accordingly.

Cons

  • Customer Support is unresponsive and poor
  • Inconsistent interface in the product
  • Reporting out of Absorb is cumbersome
  • No search functionality within courses.

  • I believe the pricing positioning could be improved, specially to support projects with more than 350 active users.
  • It would be great if the product had an integrated authoring tool to create more compelling learning content inside the platform. Today it is possible to convert PPT files or upload videos.
  • The Brazilian Portuguese version could be improved. It is possible to apply adjustments using the translation tool, but a few resources are always in English.

Alternatives Considered

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.

More features, easy to use/ friendly, better technical support, variety of native intergrations (app model).

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Very fast deployment (average of 20 working days). No setup fee.
  • Easy content upload and delivery: existing content may be published easily, without extra costs.
  • Free support 24 hours per week.
