    All in all, the Absorb LMS system is a user-friendly system for the employee as well as the administrator. Creating courses is not cumbersome and allows for a variety of types. The only missing type of content that it doesn't allow is the upload of a PPT that can be viewed directly in the training window instead of forcing the download to the user's computer. The workaround is to save the PPT presentation as a video or to create a scorm file. I really like the scheduled emailed course activity reports that can be set up for course owners so that they may track course completion by users. All in all, I would highly rate the system from a cost standpoint, user-friendliness, and in the area of course creation. I do wish the more advanced reporting features were included without a significant cost upgrade.

    Engagedly has a huge range of possibilities and we chose it because of all the functionalities it offers. I'm not marking my rating a 9 or 10 because of the UI. If you're an active user (e.g. in the people department) then you get used to the UI fast enough. However, if you only use it twice per year (like all our other users) it can be difficult to find what you need. That being said, Engagedly offers a truly broad range of HR-related functionalities and we're very happy about that!

    Pros

    Absorb LMS Software Inc.

    • The admin reporting dashboard is amazing. Customizing widgets with course stats for our courses allows us to see (or share with stakeholders) visual representations of our progress immediately upon login.
    • Publishing SCORM content from Create into the LMS is seamless. Maintenance and editing is a breeze!
    • I have worked in many systems in my tenure as a designer at multiple companies- the admin side of Absorb is by FAR the easiest to learn and use. Many systems have a deeply nested structure that is difficult to navigate - Absorb has lots of features and options but doesn't nest them in a way that difficult to understand.
    • The LMS is flexible and provides options regarding course setup that is nearly limitless. If you want multiple lessons within one course you can do that- if you want only one lesson per course but then you want to build a curriculum you can do that. You can enforce orders with ease. Set up enrollment rules with ease. Use email messaging from within the system- or turn it off for individual courses while not affecting global levels. Those are just a few examples of things I have done in Absorb with ease that couldn't be done in other systems I worked with.

    • performance management - setting this up is quite complicated
    • reports in all sections aren't always user friendly
    • no help videos in the new U.I
    • The survey module is quite basic, you cant set up surveys with answers that lead to different routes, i.e. if no ask this, if yes ask that

        I enjoy using Absorb, especially as a first-time user and not being familiar with an LMS. I have also received a great amount of support.

        Support Rating

        Absorb LMS Software Inc.

        Support is very helpful when needed. It is easy to open a ticket and support is always quick to assist in getting the issue fixed the first time. My only issue was an issue we had for a long time when trying to get the file feed up and running which never seemed to work right, however it does now work correctly the way we want it to.

        Absolutely! We love engagedly because we haven't faced any kind of lagging or such issues in website. It also has a convenient app through which you can access everything. They are very polite and address to each and every query relating to software which may cause hinderence in the process.

        Absorb LMS is the only LMS we have used and we made the selection based on recommendations from other Learning and Development Professionals in our industry.

        We used SharePoint Forms to make customized forms for ourselves but it did not work well. Our IT needed to build a system from scratch with a help of an external developer team and they were simply not capable of creating something that complicated. Engagedly already has a great platform and it was a life saver for us that we can just start using after the streamlined implementation period for a brief period of time. With SharePoint, we kept having weekly meetings for over 1.5 years to fix bugs, add necessary functions, etc. after the implementation.

        • We haven't used it long enough to calculate ROI (YET), but - we've had EEs who never engaged with performance management before who are excited to use the program
        • It has already provided a better framework to set up goals for our teams
        • Neg impact - limited feed of info from HRIS - requires some manual data to uploaded.
