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.

SAP Litmos

SAP Litmos is well suited for remote users and trainees to be able to attend training, access materials, and reflect back on what they have learned from anywhere and on any device. Our users sign themselves up and then receive an email from within SAP Litmos that gives them more detail and instruction on the courses that are assigned to them for completion. When you have hundreds of users that require annual and refresher training to match funding requirements this gives you all that you need to get the training done, track the training, and provide reports for feedback and requirements.

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

  • Reporting usually takes me a few tries to get the reports I need, but I almost always get there after a couple of tries.
  • Providing easy access to video launches. The unique log-in token only works once, and the second time it says, "Link has expired" which leads to us regularly getting emails about why the link is expired.

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.

SAP Litmos is convenient to use. It can be easily linked with existing systems with out-of-the-box connectors or APIs. Automated email invitations are available for new users. It also provides a free trial demo for the new users so that they can operate it without any problem.

We rarely have issues with down time. Obviously, the user's browser, etc. can come into play. But, overall, this is what I would call stable software. And, it has the advantage of being accessed over the internet so learners can access from home if they want.

They still have a way to go with their reporting. But, they have been working on this and they continue to improve.
Aside from reporting, I would say that SAP Litmos performs very well. I rarely have any issues at all - even given the things I normally have open on my computer!

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.

I was not completely involved in the implementation process but I heard it was fairly pain free and your team was able to jump on a few calls with my manager to work out all of the details before implementation

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.

SAP Litmos

Having reviewed our situation regularly in regards to ensuring our learners have learning tech at the bleeding edge, which goes for both an off-the-shelf LMS/LXP product and building a bespoke LMS system, SAP Litmos continues to be the best choice for our business model. Off-the-shelf LMS systems all do the same functions pretty well in regards to hosting content, but the continued development of both the integrations & features make SAP stand out, alongside their easy to navigate platform - it also stands out as having an easy to administer from a back-office POV allowing a number of stakeholders to assist in the marking and ongoing development of content.

We've had no issues, really, and have gone through more than one acquisition while using the product. It is definitely scalable.

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
