Likelihood to Recommend
Absorb Software Inc.
Absorb LMS is appropriate for any continuing education organization or company that wants a reliable platform to host enduring educational content. It has been a great experience in terms of building and designing courses, monitoring learner progress, and as another touch point for learners to access other resources our organization offers.

SalesPanda is great. It's a multifaceted user-friendly platform to find your target market, determine interest, and help drive your market. I've reviewed a LOT of software on this same platform and while I can sing the praises of this all day, it's not much different from the other software that's already readily available. I will say this is great for a mid-size agency, as there's no option to purchase separate components separately, and that can be a bit pricey.

Pros
Absorb Software Inc.
  • Usability - Both the User and Admin Experience is so simple and intuitive. The admin tools are clearly defined and laid out, yet the functionality makes it still powerful.
  • Integration - We used the Scheduled Data Imports and Exports to connect with our HRIS tool. After the initial configuration, it has worked reliably and gives me all the custom data I need to make assignments and reporting a breeze.
  • Design - I know it's covered a little bit in the Usability above, but the site just looks fantastic. There are a lot of options to customize and fit your branding requirements and all of the thumbnails/posters/billboards/etc give a very visual and appealing look to the LMS. Much better than I've seen in other products.

  • They offer a free trial – I know this sounds pretty basic, but not all software offers that. Especially in a market saturated with marketing campaign software, this is a HUGE plus.
  • SalesPanda offers training through online webinars – there isn't a need to go searching around on YouTube if you don't understand something. Additional plus!
  • Their customer support is top-notch. If we ever ran into an issue, we were never on hold for longer than a couple of minutes. Excellent attention to customer care.

Cons
Absorb Software Inc.
  • Uploading documents is perceived as hard for employees, especially with video uploads.
  • Sometimes the program lacks and then an employee has to start all over.
  • Spacing courses is possible but not with a certain amount of time, which would be useful if the next course could open after a week/month instead of when the employee finishes the previous course.

  • We didn't like that SalesPanda came as an entire package (which can be pricey). It would be nice if you could purchase different parts of it separately.
  • There's no A/B testing. This is something others offer that SalesPanda doesn't.
  • While customer service is great, their business hours are a little wonky. I'd prefer to have 24/7 customer care rather than 8-5.

We have no plans to move away from Absorb at this time. It has all of the functionality we are looking for in a learning management system and we have a lot of info stored in our LMS system for trainings including all of our current and past employee transcripts. It is also getting easier to manager with being able to connect the LMS to ADP to update employee reporting/department/location/etc. We don't have a need or reason to move away from Absorb at this time.

I know the support team is hard at work! We are currently dealing with a confusing issue where our buttons don't connect to the pages we assign them, and they have been looking into this for a number of weeks. I hope they will unravel the issue soon so we can role out our modules!

Our organization previously used LMS365, which did not support eCommerce and had difficulties supporting external users. (My understanding is the issues with external users may have been directly related to our Microsoft implementation and not directly LMS365's fault, but it was nonetheless a deal breaker for us.) Docebo was the runner up in our LMS selection process and I spent significant time chatting with the team at Docebo. It seemed like a strong competitor to Aborb. Ultimately, Absorb was both slightly more cost-efficient for our scenario.

Zoho Campaigns is super affordable, but very basic with what you get. SalesPanda is similar, and while that may be appealing to a smaller company, I would say take the leap and spend the extra money. SalesPanda isn't perfect, but it's the best bang for your proverbial buck. Our clients have been very happy with the results.
