Adobe Captivate Prime

Adobe Captivate Prime is well suited as a first LMS software for a company with adequate financial, training and audio-visual resources, and moderately tech savvy system administrators. I used this software for a startup company, and as an experience Adobe product user, it was easy for me to use and also identify where I needed to develop additional content. The stock content was good but I didn't review all of it, so can't recommend it or not for a mature corporations looking to standardize the policies.

Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone OnDemand is well suited for having a single or almost-single source of training for a very large organization. The ease of putting a course into the system and making it available across the enterprise or pushing it out as an assignment with a due date is great. It also handles the ability to push out large amounts of training to users through assignments pretty well, although sometimes it does take a while to process.

Pros

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • I appreciated the Amazon infrastructure scalability that is associated with the program.
  • The programs easy-to-use single webpage layout makes creating courses easy and efficient.
  • I loved the fact that there were both online and offline platforms. This made employee certification process unique to the student.

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Access to a huge community of training resources training webinars and social communities. Cornerstone does a great job with providing administrators with the tools and people to get connected on utilizing the product.
  • Ability to load or upload files of data. I used Cornerstone with a smaller company and now I'm with a company with a larger employee group. Cornerstone's ability to load certain data for specific features saves administrators time and effort when carrying out tasks and projects.
  • Access to permissions and constraints. This allows us to either centralize or de-centralize tasks to our organization partners based on business needs.
  • Cornerstone's available integrations in the Edge Marketplace also is becoming extremely helpful. With so many applications within a business, we're looking to have a "hub" where our employees can have a one-stop shop for learning.

Cons

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • More updated user interface, or at least the possibility to customize it according to the specific user needs, limiting or adding functionality and/or features.
  • Less complicated pricing options and more payment options.
  • Better support. Although there are different support alternatives, the only one that actually works well is email support.

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • There are a lot of resources for help, which is great, but there are a mix of locations to find them. It would be nice if they were all in one central location.
  • The HR Suite product is very basic. I am hoping the new merger with Saba will help improve this tool.
  • They don't have a way to roll up changes in the pilot portal into the production portal, so when you test changes, you then have to manually made those updates in production. I've worked with software elsewhere that they can just push those changes into production.

We are still building our site, but feel that after putting in all this effort, we need to use it more, so we will renew. We are continuing to learn all the time, and adding more features and courses to our site. We eventually want to have all training, including facilitator led, in the LMS.

As long as pricing stays reasonable, we will likely stay with Cornerstone for at least one more contract renewal. It would be a large task to migrate all of our content to a new system. However, the LMS landscape is diversifying with new startups that are showing some real innovation.

Cornerstone OnDemand in general has very good usability. It is easy for end users to start using it. We don`t need to provide any trainings for learners or line managers. At maximum we can create one pager with general information. It is easy to search trainings. You don’t need to know the ID or full name of training.

Pages do not load quickly. Often times any action or selection of a box, drop down, check, pretty much ANY Javascript interaction causes the whole entire page to load/reload/start doing something in the background. This makes a nightmare for having to mass edit courses or upload ILT sessions. It's the one of the archaic web designs they use that really bugs me as an admin and makes working in the portal at times intolerable and insufferable

I think they have a competent, friendly and "resolving" team. I have only ever been met with a willingness to assist any and every query I have come across. Roy who is one of the technical people is amazing, and so is my Customer Success Manager, Hema! I do not know what I would do without them.

They are still working out issues with their support ticket system. I think we are now experienced enough that when we submit a ticket, there is not a quick easy answer and involves higher levels of support so it does tend to take a LONG time to get assistance. When there is a major issue, their communication is getting better but when you have a defect to report or a high level support it's going to be a while. They do have EXCELLENT online help, a very active online community where customers help customers and great user groups so there is other avenues of help

The online modules are pretty good. You can access them at any time, which we have done. You learn a lot in the beginning, but having the ability to retake short lessons when you are working on those items was very helpful.

Dig deep on what your current processes are and how they match up to Cornerstone OnDemand functionality. It's not that the Cornerstone OnDemand is bad, it just the amount of work it requires you to do to get your current data to fit into their system.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Captivate Prime

Adobe Captivate Prime stacks up against Symfony more. Clearly, the amount of technology found in Adobe Captivate Prime catalog is way more compared to Symfony. Also, Magento has been owned by Adobe and the courses offered regarding Magento are exceptional in Adobe Captivate Prime. The certification process is very easy and has a multiple number of options during this COVID pandemic.
Vinoth Kumar S | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone OnDemand is lightyears ahead of HealthStream. HealthStream's system is archaic and does not have any features besides basic compliance training. HealthStream is not visually appealing and users simply choose to log in and complete only what has been assigned to them. Cornerstone's catalog is so much more user friendly and inviting.

Return on Investment

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • The courses that we have on Adobe Captivate Prime have been a key driver in winning numerous major contracts, distinguishing us from the competition.
  • These courses have helped our sales team, channel partners and resellers better understand the products themselves.
  • The courses are helping us build a global community of freelance operators of our products, which also helps us sell in certain verticals.
Carol Bettencourt | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Increased Performance Development - We were aiming for a more involved performance process between employees and managers. This is something that we continue to develop, but Cornerstone's Check-Ins functionality is the tool needed to bring performance into the future. Even just setting up the system to allow for one on one check-ins is a huge advancement in foster great communications between managers and employees.
