    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.

    Showpad Coach (LearnCore)

    It is great for perfecting sales skills and ramping up new talent via a library of videos. It is also great for creating sales competitions. This gets everyone engaged on the specific exercise that the firm is looking to educate its employees on

    Cons

    Absorb LMS

    • Automated creation of manager groups.

    Showpad Coach (LearnCore)

    • LearnCore has lost videos that I have had my reps record. This is absolutely not acceptable.
    • A couple months ago, you could not assign one employee to a specific exercise. You had a create a group.
    • The platform is not as intuitive as one would think. Setting up an exercise is somewhat annoying.

    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.

    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

    Showpad Coach (LearnCore)

    • It has improved sales reps in becoming audible ready on different topics via lots of practice via LearnCore.
    • It has made the job more interesting by employing competitions.
    • It has made our reps more polished and client facing out in the field and has reduced ramp up time on new hires.
