    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 SuccessFactors

    Success Factors is really well suited to handling needs of my organization. They've done a good job integrating with our course catalog and making it easy to book courses right from within the application. It falls short in letting managers cascade their objectives easily. When I cascade an objective, the cascaded objective will often inherit comments from my own objective and share them down to my reports - not ideal behavior.

    Pros

    Absorb LMS

    • Ease of use
    • Simple interface
    • High degree of customization
    • Ability to offer paid for content
    Jason Davitsky | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP SuccessFactors

    • This software offers us the ability to raise questions during the appraisal cycle, as well as give us an overview of the various steps we follow during the appraisal process and also provides one-stop solutions for all my needs, such as applying for leave and checking salary slips.
    • The onboarding and hiring process was changed with this tool, and it also generated attendance reports and performance reports for employees.
    • There are a number of training courses available in the SAP Learning Hub that can help you improve the configuration. If you are familiar with them then you can easily fix it yourself first. Unless something needs to be modified in Provisioning.

    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 SuccessFactors

    • The app for ios and android have room for improvement. They are aware of the limitations but amount of access and functionality is not where it needs to be.
    • The homepage of Successfactors takes longer to load and refresh itself. Especially true when viewing employee files. That is partially due to how much information is having to show on the page but it still seems to take more time than usual to show each screen.
    • You can't change the amount of time the homepage will lock you out from inactivity. This might seem minuscule but it causes so many painful re-logins and time wasting effort to login again. There currently isn't an option to change the time before lockout.

    Support is still lacking. If we don't have a critical business need where we're looking to license something new, there is no partnership with SuccessFactors. Unless of course you purchase the Platinum Support which we did not. It is difficult for us to take advantage of new functionality when we have professional services fees that will be incurred as a result. We're in a tough economy and our budgets are slim. We don't have wiggle room to add $5k here or $10k there. The overall integration into a total HCM solution is also lacking.

    The overall platform could use the updates, so the overall look of it seems more modern. Also, the number of possible customizations could be made more simple to implement. SAP SuccessFactors does have a helpline that is helpful and free. On a positive note, it is beneficial in our performance reviews and recruiting efforts.

    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.
    Ankit Hasija | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP SuccessFactors

    As a whole, SuccessFactors is tough to beat. It's at its best when all of the modules are working together. There are few competitors that offer the full talent suite.Individually, the quality of the modules can vary. The performance and goal management modules perform well but the recruiting one significantly lags its competitors. The recruiting world has seen a lot of advances in technology over the last few years but these have yet to trickle down into the SuccessFactors module.

    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

    SAP SuccessFactors

    • Visibility to the organization was an immediate impact and socialized the value of the product immediately.
    • A common and aggregated performance process reduced time and energy spent on quarterly goal setting.
    • Consolidating performance to pay outputs reduced time in some manual audit processes.
