Adobe Captivate Prime

It is really well suited as an internally facing LMS where you have repeating content that you simple run new groups of folks through. Scenarios that do not require any social learning and you have the resources to create any interactive elements in external tools. If you need to use it for external participants we found we need to start coming up with workaround solutions to a number of our problems. We found ways to use the system but it wasn't really working for us as it was intended.

Well suited for:
  • A busy environment where you want learners to be self-sufficient and to be able to access learning solutions at a time that suits them.
  • For anyone who wants to access learning using different platforms such as iPad, mobile, PC, etc
  • Anyone who needs a more in-depth learning solution rather than an overview of key learning points.

Pros

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • Support - Adobe's support is absolutely fantastic. There is no issue that I have had that hasn't been dealt with quickly, professionally and seriously. Our Customer Success Manager is amazing too and just compliments the support one gets.
  • Analytics - Captivate Prime is an LMS which can be both simple and complex, allowing each user to get something from the system. The reporting and analytics are brilliant in drilling down to the actual day to minute performance stats for each learner.

  • Enables employees to draft work goals and collaborate with their supervisors on a final version - improves mutual understanding right up front.
  • Combines performance goal ratings with competency ratings and provides a blended score. Simplifies the goal weighting so you don't have to do any calculations.
  • 9-box matrix provides useful definitions and descriptions so managers can prepare development notes or plans for individual employees.

Cons

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • The administration is somewhat costly as it depends on the quantity of clients and does exclude a level expense for a set number as given by different administrations
  • Can't utilize intelligent substance for work helps
  • The setup procedure was long and somewhat dreary, however it was fundamental, they assisted with all the preparation.

  • Would be good to have have a virtual "top level" (eg board) user built in to allow senior execs without a direct manager to be able to be set up with KPIs instead of having to create a dummy user
  • Reports have difficulty downloading if pop ups disabled or in some browser environments
  • When competencies are updated while a cycle is open, any changes don't effect that open cycle but only future ones. Would be nice to be able to have the option to apply changes to existing "open" cycles

It's not that CSB isn't a decent performance management system, but we have decided to go with just one vendor (Workday) for an HRIS/performance management/payroll system so we can directly relate pay to performance. We are more interested in having just one system that "talks" to the other pieces instead of having to work with several vendors. It reduces the hassle of having to communicate with different support teams, having different contracts, and so on.

There are specific things within the goals and competencies that are user-friendly. For example, the rating slider isn't great in my opinion. You can slide in between ratings which can create some odd scoring (if you use scoring). It seems a better solution would be a drop down where you select your rating.There are also some glitches in the system and have been told Cornerstone is aware of them but are focused on delivering new features. There are workarounds, but that doesn't seem to be a great answer.

The saving process slows it down. It doesn’t auto save. If you leave a page, it will sometimes warn you, but not always. When you hit the save button, a window pops up that says creating/saving packets. It feels very archaic.

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.

My assistant could better address this issue. My perception is that there is not immediate assistance, and that there can be a wait for help. That is not a negative, just a perception. I have not used support in two years.

I think we could have done a better job of rolling out the tool to our managers. We were under a tight timeline. In the training, we showed them everything and said go do it by this date. Looking back, I would have done it in pieces: for example, 2 weeks to write goals, 2 weeks to get sign-off from direct reports. I just let them go at it. Since then we’ve moved to agile development environment and are applying the technique to everything. In future would only do through change sprint. It is a big change I didn’t take it seriously enough.

I had a team of 3 project managing. You need a champion from every department to make sure you’re getting it right and to make sure what’s happening is communicated. It’s not something you can do without input from department heads

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Captivate Prime

We chose Adobe because it was cheaper and fit our needs more than Benchpress. We also chose Adobe because the over all appearance and quality seemed worth the extra money our partners would be paying for the professional learning opportunities hosted in the LMS. Finally, we chose Adobe because of its brand recognition; however, we were poorly mistaken in many cases.

Lesson.ly has been great to work with but it is a very clear and simple, user-friendly system that anyone can pick up with very little training as it is self-explanatory. It also has a great mobile interface and lots of different features that are easy to add for the admin but really impactful for the user.

Return on Investment

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • When training module are completed and published our employee engagement is great - the time it takes to create and publish these modules is not cost effective at all.
  • Employee engagement has seen an increase since utilizing our LMS system thus they're more productive and enjoy the training more.
  • We want more employee engagement and think CP is the tool to accomplish this goal, but getting our trainers equipped with effective training to create and publish modules continue to be a struggle-even after the $1000 ACP:CP training program.

  • It's tool and it's only as good as the person wielding it. The investment in PiiQ was accompanied by a quarterly cadence and manager feedback training. We feel like our employees are given regular feedback and bonuses are tied to objective accomplishment.
