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.

Trainual

We have offices set around the world, and hiring new team members in certain countries makes it a bit difficult, especially now to fly out or fly in to help get them situated and fully trained. This really helps close the gaps in between the distance and training. Makes onboarding a heck of a lot easier.

Cons

Trainual

  • The subject organization could use work! It's just jumbled and needs folders.
  • It's very cumbersome to have to click back and forth to subjects when you are within a task. I wish there was a larger side bar that could show ALL subjects, topics, and tasks in one glance with drop-down menus.

During the entire sales process, the Trainual team was great to work with. After the sale, their onboard process was top notch as well and was very quick to answer any questions and actually were open to customizing the platform to meet our specific needs. They have been great this entire time.

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.

  • This is our first time using anything like this!
  • Previously we just wrote task items in shared Google documents. It was the best of what we could do at the time, but this is a whole different world, and we love it! Being able to integrate quizzes and photos and interactive video is excellent!

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

Trainual

  • Saves time for the team for training
  • The fact that everything is in one location is really good!
  • Allows us to edit and change and adjust as the business does
  • Keeps us flexible and not cemented to a way of doing things
