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.

Wisetail LMS

Even their newest 5.0 upgrade only puts their technology capabilities at the back of the pack compared to other major LMS' in the marketplace. That said, their customer service team is very good, and they have a good company culture. If you are a very small company that wants a decent LMS, this is a good product to look at.

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.

Wisetail LMS

Last. Dead last. We selected Wisetail years ago when it was cutting edge. It's had very little development since then, and has sadly fallen to the back of the pack. It's unfortunate, since they have such a great staff. Promises to fix this have repeatedly been made and broken. There is a large client exodus from this platform taking place.

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

Wisetail LMS

  • We've been able to eliminate costly live events in lieu of live webcasts. The recordings of those are hosted on our Wisetail platform.
  • The 4.0 platform has a significant administrative burden that is only partially fixed in 5.0.
