Absorb LMS Software Inc.

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.

It is very appropriate for new hires to be able to take training during on-boarding. for customer service, safety, and some policy training. It is also great for OSHA training. They have great management training, especially for first time managers. Also have HR training and updates as well for HR staff or HR staff new to their roles.

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.

      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.

      HR BLR has a lot of training, however, it is more where you have to facilitate the training. The nice thing about ThinkHR Learn is that you assign the training to your employees and they can take it on a self paced basis and you are able to monitor their progress and ensure they are receiving the development they need.

      • It has definitely been positive, but I'm not sure how I could measure the ROI. I feel it has given me more insight into certain situations, such as dealing with millennial employees, and has helped me to grow as a leader in my organization.
