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.

Kallidus LMS

Excellent product although greater support and more education at implementation would have ensured my project team would have had a greater understanding of the system, including migration of historical data to ensure its structured in the best way .the system is well suited to large organisations where staff work out of multiple sites and multiple devices including mobile devices.

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.
