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.

Wisetail LMS

Even their newest 5.0 upgrade only puts their technology capabilities at the back of the pack compared to other major LMS' in the marketplace. That said, their customer service team is very good, and they have a good company culture. If you are a very small company that wants a decent LMS, this is a good product to look at.

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.

Wisetail LMS

Last. Dead last. We selected Wisetail years ago when it was cutting edge. It's had very little development since then, and has sadly fallen to the back of the pack. It's unfortunate, since they have such a great staff. Promises to fix this have repeatedly been made and broken. There is a large client exodus from this platform taking place.

Return on Investment

Absorb Anywhere LMS

  • This has been a positive ROI as we can track all course completions for audits as well as cutting costs for travel and training.

Wisetail LMS

  • We've been able to eliminate costly live events in lieu of live webcasts. The recordings of those are hosted on our Wisetail platform.
  • The 4.0 platform has a significant administrative burden that is only partially fixed in 5.0.
