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.

Intellum

Intellum is great for basic LMS. It has an easy-to-use user interface and anyone can pick it up quickly. This is great for onboarding courses for SAAS companies, who want to be able to train their users without the need to actually train them one on one. IT is easy to follow from an end user standpoint. Intellum is an "out of the box" solution. You have some control over the styling and layout, but when it comes down to it you are really just plugging in your own wording and pictures into their elements vs really customizing to your needs. This means it is great for someone who wants to jump in and get running right away, but limits those who want to really tailor the experience to match their brand. Where Intellum really shines is in the ability to add on additional products (like Evolve or Tribe) to really create a cohesive learning and engagement environment.

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

Intellum

  • I think that Intellum can greatly improve the functionality of inactive courses existing in the tool in itself.
  • Reporting is unreliable in Intellum which most of the time requires a lot of manipulation and scrubbing to obtain sufficient information.
  • There is no exact idea of how long the time will be taken to tackle any issue encountered when service tickets are soared.

The system has changed since I started using it and it has become more intuitive. As a user and admin, I find that it is fairly easy to navigate.

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.

Intellum

Intellum does not measure up to Relias. Relias is much more user-friendly and offers course content relevant to, and meeting, state regulations. Intellum was cheaper than Relias; however, since Intellum has started charging for every little service, the cost is pretty comparable to Relias.

Return on Investment

Absorb 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.

Intellum

  • The biggest impact Intellum has had on hc1 would be the space for learner engagement. I still have to work hard to direct our clients to the lms (link from our hc1 solution) but when they do - they love it!
  • Since the pandemic in 2019, hc1 also has noticed a big up tic in usage of lms from our clients because of the need for virtual learning.
