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.

Relias Learning Management System

Good for an organization who are in health care and in ABA. Not so good everyone else. There are courses specific to the industry, however, the glitches and the lack of support from the customer service staff makes it hard to recommend the product.

Relias Learning Management System

  • The gamification elements are fun, and our staff enjoys decorating their crests.
  • The ability to personalize our reminders ensures that compliance stays top-of-mind.
  • User-friendly doesn't do it justice - zero training is needed on how to use the system because it's so intuitive!

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

Relias Learning Management System

  • Reporting is abominable, hasn't been updated in over 4 years.
  • Organization of courses, modules, training plans, skills checklists, manuals, and tests— a lot of options and very challenging to differentiate
  • Their mobile application is not user-friendly, it crashes, doesn't load certain courses, doesn't play audio on other ones, and has very poor performance.

RMLS have become an important component of our agency's support systems. It provides consistent context for education and trainings as well as being flexible to allow staff to access it on their time. We have found many of the content sessions to be very useful for staff development and supportive of our overall agency goals and strategies.

Relias staff has been accommodating whenever support is needed. When Relias staff are at booths at conferences, they also engage very positively and are available for support. It seems as if the Relias staff really care about the work they do and the product they offer.

It was very easy to implement. It's cloud based, so the most difficult part was getting users loaded.

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.

Relias Learning Management System

Relias has significantly more and higher quality training courses and video offerings than any competitor in the space. At the end of the day, it's about the caregivers receiving as much information they can to be successful.

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

Relias Learning Management System

  • We have been able to manage a large amount of training for a diverse work force more efficiently.
  • We are adding functionality to be able to use the system to circulate materials to our workforce where documentation of knowledge/understanding is needed,
