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.

Multi-unit restaurants can benefit from HotSchedules Train because it allows you to deliver a consistent message to all new employees. This becomes more and more important the larger you get. It also gives you a tool to quickly implement any new changes and get those details to your stores as well as confirm that the information has been viewed. Small chains or individual units may find the extra work to set up the training very time consuming, but once you have the training material organized, setting up the courses is very simple. If you use HotSchedules, then HotSchedules Train is the next step.

  • If you have a lot of courses, it can sometimes get lost if you don't organize it.
  • Having to wait 24 hours for Hotschedules to connect with Schoox is a pain.
  • Sometimes the automatic rules don't work. I have to manually add members to the program at least twice a week (having multiple locations turns can turn into manually adding 10 + employees a week).

It is very user-friendly. For staff that are computer comfortable it is a breeze. We also have some wi-fi issues in some of our locations that make it difficult.

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.

Schoox looks more like social media experience for our team vs. the survey monkey website.

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.
