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.

Grovo

Grovo is well suited to any company that wants to train their staff on soft skills or hard skills. The service was excellent, the website ran well, the Grovo content was great and well produced. They did not fit well when it came to hosting our company's proprietary content.

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.

Grovo had the best content, cleanest looking website and most affordable pricing for our purposes.

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.

Grovo

  • Zero impact. When we determined they were not a good fit for us, we decided to go another direction. I would certainly try them again however if they addressed my concerns as their service was excellent.
