Absorb LMS

Absorb LMS is a very easy-to-use, intuitive solution to your LMS requirements. The platform comes loaded with features and is completely plug-and-play. It has been developed for mid-size to large organizations. It helps to organize your learning content in a way that you will see a boost in the learning engagement right from the start. The platform can help organizations reach their learning and development goals regardless of whom training is being training are provided. It may not be very suitable for very small organizations or startups due to its pricing and what I feel is that it has been designed keeping the requirements of the mid-size to large organizations.

It's a good learning platform to reskill the employee needs and allows manager or organization to enroll mandatory courses to all employees. With a single consolidated learning platform, Human Resource department or personnel able to keep track on the employee completion progress as part of the yearly KPI or goal setting

Cons

Absorb LMS

  • Automated creation of manager groups.
  • Easier way of seeing who employees report to so we can create manager groups.
Drew Randles CSSR, CSMR, CIR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • Adobe Connect has the sidebar present to be used for hearing impaired compliance, however, the fluidic player does not have this capability.
  • Would also like to see more flexibility in using alternative logon rather than email, so better integration with our system to allow using a different identifier - i.e. employee number.

Currently, our company uses this program and another competitor for our learning management software. We like the adaptability of this program and appreciate the customer service that Adobe provides, however the other program is starting to turn out to be a better value for our company as they improve their compatibility.

Reporting is a HUGE factor in any LMS. We also have some complex courses we built in Captivate and loaded to Captivate Prime. Captivate Prime often times does not accurately report the scores. Therefore, I have spent a great deal of time trying to get the scores to compute.

On a few occasions, I've logged in to issue a test to a staff member and my course would just spin. I've had to reschedule several test attempts due to this. In my opinion, the issue was not resolved by Adobe

The performance of Adobe Captivate Prime is also extremely good. The user interface is fast and easy to load. The complexity is not nearly as bad as some of the other programs on the market. Speed was not impacted.

I think they have a competent, friendly and "resolving" team. I have only ever been met with a willingness to assist any and every query I have come across. Roy who is one of the technical people is amazing, and so is my Customer Success Manager, Hema! I do not know what I would do without them.

Unfortunately, I was not a part of the implementation of Adobe Captivate Prime learning management software in our company, but I was present after its implementation. From what others tell me, the implementation of the product was fine and there were only a few issues that primarily focused on internal communication errors about what we would use the product for

Alternatives Considered

Absorb LMS

Absorb LMS is certainly better than most of the platforms out in the market due as it's far more intuitive and offers far more templates and customizations, while the other two platforms are also good in their respective specialties, Absorb LMS completely nails it in the number of features and functionality it offers. The customizations that Absorb LMS is offering are not available on the other platforms which have been very much beneficial to our company.
Ankit Hasija | TrustRadius Reviewer

We have a running history using Adobe with no issues at all, so we decided to go with [their] brand over others. Also, due to familiarity with the software itself, it was easier to stay with the [same] brand.

The product's overall scalability and flexibility is extremely good. I wish that the other products our company uses were this flexible! The product is easy to deploy across multiple departments and teams as needed.

Return on Investment

Absorb LMS

  • Honestly, I can't really say that Absorb [LMS] has had a positive or negative impact on the business
  • Some features are better than the last program we used, but nothing earth shaking
  • Some features are less than ideal, but it's nothing we really feel the need to complain about
Marquis C. Brantley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • We are a small organization, so for now, we aren't quite sure if our ROI is working. But are confident in how this system will help us grow.
  • Our consumers have been truly delighted about the LMS and view us at a much more professional level now.
  • High level of security is very positive.
