    Ambition

    Well suited: environments that crave social affirmation, social competition, or other organizations that can't incentivize success via compensation.Not well-suited: environments that support several similar roles that have different metrics. Example: we have 5 similar roles at my company that would benefit from Ambition, and each of these teams sits close to each other. It's challenging to customize Ambition to display multiple different roles with different metrics, rewards, and content. If you display the content on a screen in your office, it's best suited for only one role/team. Otherwise, you'll likely need to deploy Ambition to different teams separately, via a different account.

    Brainshark is very user-friendly and it’s very easy to create learning content, even a beginner could walk through it fairly easily. They also have a great support team and help site that can pretty much answer any question with video tutorials.

    Pros

    Ambition

    • Tracks metrics and goals
    • Keeps the floor buzzing and motivated
    • Improves Morale

    • I love how easy creating a Brainshark and their formal learning is to use. Upload an animated Power Point, record audio, add music, or use videos etc.
    • Their formal learning also keeps track of people in classes, allows us to invite people to a curricula, send notifications when classes are added, and update on the fly without having to resubmit all new classes.
    • I also love that people in classes can run their own transcript and see where they are in a program, and if graded how they scored.

    Cons

    Ambition

    • Adding more insight for individuals to take action on the data.
    Evan Carlson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Brainshark

    • Brainshark has addressed a number of feature enhancements over the past two years...it really performs at a high level on a consistent basis...
    • Ocassionally we run into a large video file >500mb that we have to address directly with support but it does not happen very often...

    I'm always able to access Brainshark, whether it is to upload, record, share, download, or view presentations. Whenever I do need to contact someone at Brainshark, there is always someone there. I have never had a problem accessing a presentation and any updates to presentations are viewable immediately.

    We've found a few glitches and needed some branding updated. Each time we've called, they were super responsive and cared about my issue as much as I did! They've even helped me (and another vendor) figure out how to have this other outside software integrate with theirs to achieve an even greater presentation. I'm super impressed with their Customer Service people.

    The training is easy to use. You can take as little or as much as you need. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. There is a variety of training you can take. There are mini lessons, courses, and webinars. The folks at Brainshark truly want to help you have the best presentation possible.

    I have evaluated a few products similar to Ambition, at a high level. I have not used others.I implement Ambition at our office for one team, but I wasn't the only decision maker.

    There are a lot of sites that allow you to host/share content in the loud. What won for me was their tracking, analytics, and reporting. At the time there was nobody even close to Brainshark and I have not seen anything since that would make me want to switch. I look forward to many years working with them.

    Return on Investment

    Ambition

    • Increased productivity
    • Better morale
    • More competitive culture
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Brainshark

    • Client satisfaction - we send out summaries of our big webcasts/conference calls via Brainshark. We've received lots of replies stating they love the format because they can consume the information on their own time.
    • Time to market - before Brainshark, it took several days, if not weeks to work with a design team to get professional-looking summaries available. Now, we have the process down to a day or two.
