Absorb LMS

Absorb LMS is a very easy-to-use, intuitive solution to your LMS requirements. The platform comes loaded with features and is completely plug-and-play. It has been developed for mid-size to large organizations. It helps to organize your learning content in a way that you will see a boost in the learning engagement right from the start. The platform can help organizations reach their learning and development goals regardless of whom training is being training are provided. It may not be very suitable for very small organizations or startups due to its pricing and what I feel is that it has been designed keeping the requirements of the mid-size to large organizations.

LearnUpon

I think LearnUpon is a great LMS for an organization that focuses on internal learners, aka, employees. It's very easy to create courses, enroll learners, and mark attendance. For an association such as mine, more support would be helpful for appropriately setting up the store to reflect member and non-member accounts. In addition, it's difficult to do outside-the-box functions like transfers and refunds.

Pros

Absorb LMS

  • Ease of use
  • Simple interface
  • High degree of customization
  • Ability to offer paid for content
Jason Davitsky | TrustRadius Reviewer

LearnUpon

  • Integration with video conferencing platforms (primarily Zoom).
  • Timing out releasing of course materials and exams so students can't get eyes on something an instructor is not ready for them to see yet.
  • Customization of our store front and courses with regard to branding and graphics.

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

LearnUpon

  • There are issues with users who have an account in more than one LearnUpon portal. If a user has an account in an existing LearnUpon portal, and they want to create an account in another LearnUpon portal, then they have to be invited to the new portal by an Administrator. but the user has no way of knowing that its a LearnUpon portal until they can't sign up. Its very confusing for the learner.
  • An email address is required in order to set up an account. We serve many providers who don't have email addresses for all of their staff, so this is a huge issue for us.

Alternatives Considered

Absorb LMS

Absorb LMS is certainly better than most of the platforms out in the market due as it's far more intuitive and offers far more templates and customizations, while the other two platforms are also good in their respective specialties, Absorb LMS completely nails it in the number of features and functionality it offers. The customizations that Absorb LMS is offering are not available on the other platforms which have been very much beneficial to our company.

LearnUpon

LearnUpon's interface and immersive experience blows the competition out of the water. LearnUpon understands the "big picture" of online learning and how to provide a system that is easy and fun to use for users at any level. LearnUpon's knowledge of their own platform, and their impeccable client support is unparalleled. LearnUpon understands our business and learning needs better than any competitor. Now that I'm using a different platform at another job, I miss LearnUpon every day!

Return on Investment

Absorb LMS

  • Honestly, I can't really say that Absorb [LMS] has had a positive or negative impact on the business
  • Some features are better than the last program we used, but nothing earth shaking
  • Some features are less than ideal, but it's nothing we really feel the need to complain about
Marquis C. Brantley | 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.
