Absorb LMS

[Absorb LMS] is well suited for organizations that have the ability to create and customize their own content. Content creation and maintenance require dedicated resources and smaller organizations will require the expertise in order to create, maintain, and update content. Reporting is fairly simple but provides the basics. Advanced reporting will require additional 3rd party software/integration.

Spekit

If you are using Salesforce and have any kind of processes in place, you need Spekit. If you are a fast growing company with new team members coming on board often, you need Spekit. If you have simply avoided documenting your Salesforce Org because doing so is time consuming and a real pain, you REALLY need Spekit!

Absorb LMS 9.0
Based on 4 answers
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.

Alternatives Considered

Absorb LMS

Absorb [LMS] had [many] of the same features. Many of the vendors had a lower base price with additional pricing for the add-ons. From a cost perspective, the majority of software providers' costs were higher with all of the required addons. For the features required Absorb [LMS] offered the best value overall.
