Absorb 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.

I only have experience as a single staff person. Adobe Captivate Prime works well for that, but I also know that there are functions that I don't use. For example, having different managers have access to different groups of people or allowing social learning.

Pros

Absorb LMS

Ron Massicotte | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • I appreciated the Amazon infrastructure scalability that is associated with the program.
  • The programs easy-to-use single webpage layout makes creating courses easy and efficient.
  • I loved the fact that there were both online and offline platforms. This made employee certification process unique to the student.

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

  • More updated user interface, or at least the possibility to customize it according to the specific user needs, limiting or adding functionality and/or features.
  • Less complicated pricing options and more payment options.
  • Better support. Although there are different support alternatives, the only one that actually works well is email support.

We are still building our site, but feel that after putting in all this effort, we need to use it more, so we will renew. We are continuing to learn all the time, and adding more features and courses to our site. We eventually want to have all training, including facilitator led, in the LMS.

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

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 | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Captivate Prime

Adobe Captivate Prime was selected for us by the institution that manages the employees but compared to the other Adobe products, it does its job very well. Although no app is seamless, Adobe Captivate Prime comes quite close to perfect in the quality of materials. Although monetary wise Adobe products may not be ideal, at times, they are slightly worth it.

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.

Drew Randles CSSR, CSMR, CIR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • The courses that we have on Adobe Captivate Prime have been a key driver in winning numerous major contracts, distinguishing us from the competition.
  • These courses have helped our sales team, channel partners and resellers better understand the products themselves.
  • The courses are helping us build a global community of freelance operators of our products, which also helps us sell in certain verticals.
