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.

HealthcareSource NetLearning

The key questions I would ask are:Am I seeking the ability to educate with interactive content or document education? HealthcareSource NetLearning is stronger in documenting.How specific do I need to be in educating? For house-wide and department-wide assignments HealthcareSource NetLearning works great. Distinguishing to micro-groups are more difficult.Do I want to integrate with other products? This is impossible at this time. (3rd party courseware is possible, I am speaking of 3rd party report building software and other software integrations.)

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.

I've used a couple different LMS's and this one is a very easy system to log into as well as use when in a hurry or have multiple users that aren't enrolled.
