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.

LearnUpon

LearnUpon is well-suited to an organization that would like to implement training for its employees and/or customer base. It is powerful, yet simple and intuitive while being packed full of features. They have flexible pricing plans too, you can pay per active user or by a set number of accounts.

Pros

Absorb LMS

  • Clean interface for learners
  • Logical organization of courses
  • Admin portal is OK
Ron Massicotte | TrustRadius Reviewer

LearnUpon

  • Customer service - Learnupon helped me to learn online learning management and become proficient in the administration of online training. They have helped me understand many facets of e-learning and helped me on a variety of issues unrelated to their own system. I know I can rely on them.
  • Automation -- Learnupon has many features which reduce my level of effort as an administrator (e.g., automated emails, automated certificates).
  • Integration with Authored Content -- Learnupon works seamlessly with my authored content and makes the integration of Tin Can easy. When I had problems (mostly due to my design error), they helped me figure out what was wrong and walked me through methods to improve the overall design of my authored content.
  • Price -- LearnUpon's scalable and efficient pricing has allowed me to be agile in my use of resources and has provided a lot of value for my investment.

Cons

Absorb LMS

  • Automated creation of manager groups.
  • Easier way of seeing who employees report to so we can create manager groups.

LearnUpon

  • They don't offer a "pre-requisites" feature but they are very responsive about feature requests. We signed up late last year and already 2 of my feature requests have been implemented.
  • The discussion forum feature (brand new!) is not super intuitive, yet, but I expect the support team to improve it quickly as they do everything else.
  • The notifications feature could be improved a bit, but it still functions as necessary!

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.

LearnUpon

As a relatively new user of learning management systems, my exposure to other LMS has been limited to online classes I taught at the college level and Moodle. LearnUpon offers great automation, customer service, and integration with other e-learning tools (Articulate, Vimeo, etc.). LearnUpon also gave me enough time to test out their platform and ensure that it could meet my needs.

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.
Drew Randles CSSR, CSMR, CIR | TrustRadius Reviewer

LearnUpon

  • We have not implemented it yet due to unforeseen issues with a different vendor, but we have launched two pilots and it has been very well received.
  • The expected outcome is a lot more revenue because the catalog we have in our current LMS (Absorb) is very poorly designed and ineffective.
  • Another expected outcome is that people will be excited to learn more and be better ambassadors for our company.
