Absorb Anywhere LMS

Absorb is very well suited for any company looking to standardize training for all employees. It is also best suited when paired with a course vendor to pick specific courses aimed towards employees and their interests. This makes orientation very simple. We used to have a 2-hour orientation conference to cover everything these courses can cover.

Showpad Coach (LearnCore)

It is great for perfecting sales skills and ramping up new talent via a library of videos. It is also great for creating sales competitions. This gets everyone engaged on the specific exercise that the firm is looking to educate its employees on

Cons

Absorb Anywhere LMS

  • Automated creation of manager groups.
  • Easier way of seeing who employees report to so we can create manager groups.

Showpad Coach (LearnCore)

  • LearnCore has lost videos that I have had my reps record. This is absolutely not acceptable.
  • A couple months ago, you could not assign one employee to a specific exercise. You had a create a group.
  • The platform is not as intuitive as one would think. Setting up an exercise is somewhat annoying.

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.

Showpad Coach (LearnCore)

There are other ways you could store videos, however, LearnCore and its grading system were one of a kind. This is the reason it was selected to see if it would move the needle at our firm.
