Axonify

Axonify works very well in our organization because we have different departments needing different things and skills. For instance, we have a software-focused department that needs to learn about our latest update. But not everyone in software needs to know every update, and then some only need a refresher. Axonify allows us to target these individuals and see how they are doing. We can then go in and see question performance and tweak if necessary. While Axonify is easy to use, the system and taxonomy of levels and categorization does have a learning curve. If you want something you can set up immediately, this may not be the best option.

Trainual

I have enjoyed using Trainual as an employee, and also creating new Trainual subjects for my employees. Trainual allows for videos to be added as well as images, text, gifs, and more! This array of options allows us to communicate with all types of learners quickly and effectively. I think Trainual is best suited for education-related opportunities such as employee on-boarding, employee training, or education courses. Because each subject is broken down into tasks and steps, it gets super granular which is great, but it's best used for education and not general employee notifications.

Pros

Axonify

  • Update the platform in response to feedback from current users- ex. Many of the features I wished Axonify had when I first signed up for it are now live, such as guided learning, the ability to add certification to guided learning paths, and the ability to tie outside metrics and behaviors directly to Axonify training frequency and scores
  • Reinforce employee knowledge to ensure employees don't forget content they don't use frequently- ex. as long as an employee signs in to train regularly, you can be assured that they will learn what they need to because the Axonify algorithm prioritizes reinforcement questions on topics that the learner hasn't seen recently and topics that the learner has the lowest scores in. The end result is that the platform is always customizing the content watch learner sees to help improve the individual's weak points. This means that of an employee is under performing, we know it is either because the process is not working, or the employee is unwilling to follow the process, not because he or she doesn't know any better
  • Foster competition and excitement around completing certain training milestones- ex. the Leaderboard can get pretty competitive as employees compete to reach the top. The platform also lets you auction off different prizes on the platform using points earned by answering questions correctly, thereby indirectly creating an incentive to complete training.
  • I have never worked with a company that did such a great job at walking a new user through the implementation process. A year and a half after implementing the platform I still have a regular call from my rep (Erin Bresser) during which we discuss my company's training plan, pain points, strategies, upcoming features, and anything else training related. I could not ask for more or better support from a vendor.
  • I love all the different content options I have. I can use the bare bones basics and simply add questions directly into Axonify, or I can support those questions by building a complex course, video, animation, or even downloading content from the Content exchange directly from Axonify. This means that weather I have a day or a year to prepare content, I have the ability to produce a functional and productive experience for my workforce

Trainual

  • The ability to get very granular with detail.
  • The ability to integrate different types of media for different kinds of learners.

Cons

Axonify

  • The results display for surveys tends to cut off comments. There should be a better export option to save editing time on our end when generating reports.
  • I would like to be able to see the amount people spent to win prizes on the Reports>>Winners page.
  • Live Polling, registration, and electronic QA feature in Events section (like EventMobi).
Michael Dismuke | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trainual

  • Not a ton of template customization.
  • Wish we could segment users even more.

Axonify is extremely easy to use, for both employees and managers. The platform is visually appealing, and Axonify offers a number of videos and tutorials for any administration and user functionality. The reporting is also very easy to obtain and review, with the ability to drill down to team and individual results.

There is a dedicated Zendesk, and replies to queries are prompt and useful. They also have support mechanisms on their website.

I haven't contacted Trainual's support team, but I take that as a positive because I haven't needed to! The platform is easy to use, attractive (that counts for something), and everything is in a logical place when you do have a question and go searching for an answer. I have 0 complaints!

Alternatives Considered

Axonify

There are so many training platforms and increasing numbers of non LMS training platforms that it can be very difficult to figure out what is best for you. It's been a while since I did all the research that led me to Axonify, but below is a short summary of the pros and cons of the platforms I looked at and how I decided to implement Axonify.
  • Compligo- This platform was recommended by the Director of Legal and Regulatory when I first joined my current company. Its main feature is that they provide training on legal and regulatory topics (this is very important to my organization) however, it is a very old school platform, the training tended to be very long, and there was no element of reinforcement. It felt more like "check the box" training than education our workforce, so I opted to continue looking
  • Docebo- This was my second choice. Docebo is extremely similar to Axonify in the learning philosophy but ultimately I chose Axonify. I won't give my exact reasoning because I'm sure both platforms have made considerable updates since I did my research and I don't want to cause confusion by posting out of date information
  • Inkling- Inkling is a very cool platform, but not quite as robust as I knew I would need, although I'm sure they have added functionality since I last tested the platform
now I am out of space, so I'll leave it at that.

Trainual

  • 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

Axonify

  • The total cost of the operation has been favorable. We get much better usage of this product than any other product we've deployed. We've been able to use data from Axonify to undermine arguments that people haven't been trained.
  • We are still trying to get some SME's in the business to comprehend just how powerful the platform is.
Aston Moss | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trainual

  • Trainual has very positively help us in on-boarding new employees! Everyone is provided the same information about company structure, mission, vision, etc.
  • Trainual has helped us solidify and keep consistent with our training of new employees. We are able to train people faster and they seem to be retaining the information better!
