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.

Excellent product although greater support and more education at implementation would have ensured my project team would have had a greater understanding of the system, including migration of historical data to ensure its structured in the best way .the system is well suited to large organisations where staff work out of multiple sites and multiple devices including mobile devices.

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.
