Absorb LMS Software Inc.

All in all, the Absorb LMS system is a user-friendly system for the employee as well as the administrator. Creating courses is not cumbersome and allows for a variety of types. The only missing type of content that it doesn't allow is the upload of a PPT that can be viewed directly in the training window instead of forcing the download to the user's computer. The workaround is to save the PPT presentation as a video or to create a scorm file. I really like the scheduled emailed course activity reports that can be set up for course owners so that they may track course completion by users. All in all, I would highly rate the system from a cost standpoint, user-friendliness, and in the area of course creation. I do wish the more advanced reporting features were included without a significant cost upgrade.

SkyPrep

SkyPrep LMS is well-suited to organizations that do not currently utilize an LMS. The support provided from step one through implementation is excellent. SkyPrep LMS not only wants to help make an organization run more efficiently when it comes to upskilling employees and/or clients, they also want to learn from the needs of organizations in order to better serve all of their clients.

Pros

Absorb LMS Software Inc.

  • The admin reporting dashboard is amazing. Customizing widgets with course stats for our courses allows us to see (or share with stakeholders) visual representations of our progress immediately upon login.
  • Publishing SCORM content from Create into the LMS is seamless. Maintenance and editing is a breeze!
  • I have worked in many systems in my tenure as a designer at multiple companies- the admin side of Absorb is by FAR the easiest to learn and use. Many systems have a deeply nested structure that is difficult to navigate - Absorb has lots of features and options but doesn't nest them in a way that difficult to understand.
  • The LMS is flexible and provides options regarding course setup that is nearly limitless. If you want multiple lessons within one course you can do that- if you want only one lesson per course but then you want to build a curriculum you can do that. You can enforce orders with ease. Set up enrollment rules with ease. Use email messaging from within the system- or turn it off for individual courses while not affecting global levels. Those are just a few examples of things I have done in Absorb with ease that couldn't be done in other systems I worked with.

SkyPrep

  • Many of the features in the newly released "Studio" are difficult to understand
  • It would be great if I had more control of what data my dashboard contained
  • Need to streamline their email delivery system and offer fewer but richer features.

      I enjoy using Absorb, especially as a first-time user and not being familiar with an LMS. I have also received a great amount of support.

      I say 9 instead of 10 not because of any lack of confidence in SkyPrep but only because I can't be sure how large or responsive my market -- male-friendly social workers and other helping professionals -- will be to my offerings.

      Support Rating

      Absorb LMS Software Inc.

      Support is very helpful when needed. It is easy to open a ticket and support is always quick to assist in getting the issue fixed the first time. My only issue was an issue we had for a long time when trying to get the file feed up and running which never seemed to work right, however it does now work correctly the way we want it to.

      Compared to all competitors, when I was vetting and choosing an LMS system, SkyPrep LMS had the biggest ROI potential, all the features we identified as needs, and it was the best overall experience in talking with a company.

      SkyPrep

      • The system has allowed for training in multiple international locations without the need to actually travel and conduct in-person training. This has allowed us to open multiple travel destinations and conduct humanitarian missions in a much tighter timeframe as opposed to in-person training class timelines.
      • Travel restrictions due to COVID-19 have made SkyPrep an integral part of our department.
