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.

Mindflash

Mindflash is fantastic for all types of eLearning. Tracking and reporting is so easy. The system is not suitable for all types of live training but there are workarounds.

Pros

  • Clean interface for learners
  • Logical organization of courses
  • Admin portal is OK
Ron Massicotte profile photo
  • One of the core strengths of Mindflash is undoubtedly is its ease of use. It is a very intuitive tool that any training manager can learn to use quite quickly. Additionally, Mindflash is very easy for the trainees to use as well. Trainees with even the most rudimentary of computer knowledge and skills can take training courses through Mindflash. Because it is so easy to use, trainers and trainees do not have to worry about spending inordinate amounts of time learning how to use it.
  • Mindflash's ability to automatically track trainees' progress, send trainees reminders, and record their course scores is fantastic. If you are like me, you probably do not have a surplus amount of time to manually track your trainees' progress and send reminders to them so they complete your training course. Mindflash takes care of these necessary but time-consuming tasks for you and does so well.
  • Being able to quickly view aggregated information on trainees' performance and progress should be a core strength of any LMS. Mindflash's advanced reporting aggregates and summarizes information you will want to know: the average score of trainees on a course, the amount of time trainees took to complete the course, etc. You can also quickly and easily see a list of trainees and their individual course scores. All of this information can be downloaded as well. Mindflash assists training managers by making such important information so readily available.

Cons

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

  • Admin: They only allow one admin account, which can be a headache. Instead of logging into my personal Mindflash I log into a shared user, that makes and assigns all the videos.
  • Agent UI: It isn't the prettiest UI and can be hard to navigate for beginners.
  • Certificates: The certificates for passing a course are just dumb. I have them all turned off and I could never see that being useful.

My company was just acquired, so Mindflash may not be the appropriate solution going forward. However, if we had not been acquired, I would have renewed the product without hesitation

The interface is just so simple to understand. It's clean and efficient. We showed Mindflash off to the Safety group, who are not computer gurus and they were beyong excited to use it.

First, they have a decent knowledgebase. Second, you can ask them a question instantly via live chat. I have yet to present a problem they couldn't fix. And I always feel like my problems matter.

If you're going to develop a short course to demo the product internally, don't bother avoiding your own topics. Mindflash rolls whatever content you create during the trial into your production environment when you decide to buy. The time taken to go from not having a system to being live with Mindflash is virtually instant. What you'll be wanting for is time to develop content and people to test it out.

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.
Ron Massicotte profile photo
This is an alternate software that we have looked into, right now we don't have the need for the increased flexibility that Lesson.ly provides with learning from your mobile or tablet. We haven't seen a lot of those things as particularly useful for our current training methods, but we see the quality to be similar.

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.
Ron Massicotte profile photo
  • Overall training has improved.
  • We are able to grow rapidly and keep training costs down.
  • We are able to meet specific customer's needs a lot better
