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.

SAP Litmos

As an LMS it is intuitive and has a user-friendly design for both the learner and the administrator, making it accessible for almost all learners. It was designed for learning predominantly so it's great for hosting content such as SCORM packages, videos, documents etc - but improved focus on using it as both a comms and community platform, as is becoming increasingly required within the L&D space, would be advantageous as the news and discussion forums are a bit underwhelming. But it's not its core purpose, so that's understandable. The sheer volume of integrations and features that just keep coming, keeps its appeal and allows us to keep evolving the learner experience.

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

SAP Litmos

  • Searching for teams is a challenge, as we have to enter the entire name (or know exactly how it starts), since all our locations start with Harvest of _________, it means having to type that and not just the unique indicator that would be in the blank.
  • Some reporting capability could be improved, as it only provides the latest iteration of something rather than historical data.
  • Ability to view/print an organization structure with Litmos is still a challenge.

For what we need in the very near future, Litmos does not offer us the required capability. Ideally, we are looking for an integrated LMS, coaching, mobile support and content creation platform. Litmos may have the LMS part covered but there are other platforms that do this better along with providing an integrated all-in-one service or at the very least support API integration with other vendors to meet our requirements.

I think overall usability is good to great. The user and admin interface is customizable and very easy to use. Litmos does release new features every quarter and it definitely enhances and builds value for the product. Our Company uses the Litmos system extensively, probably more than the majority of Litmos clients. With feature releases, we tend to notice bugs but they are quick to fix the major ones.

Poor response time and generally poor responses.

The knowledgebase is very generic, so beyond some basic, "this is how you use Litmos", I am not super impressed with the self-service options for troubleshooting issues or finding best practices from peers. Getting a response from specialists also takes a great deal of effort. The initial ticket is almost never where my answer comes from, so I have to wait on the escalation to take place, and usually that goes to an account specialist. Once I get that, there is usually a back and forth before we agree on what the issue is. Service is always courteous, but not efficient. I am never sure where my ticket stands with regard to escalation/processing, so I have to inquire. Service tickets and service are not a clean process right now, at least not for me. Nothing like it was during our implementation.

Implementation was almost 3 years ago - the team was very helpful and we had regular calls/check-ins. The one piece that could have been strengthened was how we implemented our integrations, specifically Salesforce. That part of the implementation was not the strongest.

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.

SAP Litmos

Each one of the other products reviewed had one or more required features missing. A big feature that most other LMS's didn't have was a native iOS or Android application; or if there was a mobile application, it was quite frankly difficult to use and unintuitive. The Litmos Applications worked relatively well, were simple to use and enabled us to complete all of our necessary requirements. Other features that the competition struggled with was training material compatibility; Litmos allowed for SCORM or Tin Can, videos, PowerPoint, PDFs, etc. where other programs didn't allow us to add many of these formats.

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

SAP Litmos

  • The reporting we are able to extract from Litmos is amazing and has saved us tons of man hours.
  • SAP Litmos is extremely user friendly and our associates like logging in because of this.
  • The limitations of the assignment feature has had an impact on the Operations Training Team and the system administrator because of the removal and the assignment functionality.
