Chose TalentLMS
The features of each LMS program were similar. Each had their own bells and whistles. Some came with pre-authored content, which we did not require. Our needs are very specific to our industry, and we intended to create much of our own content. In addition, the pricing …

BizLibrary
Since I only use BizLibrary as a source for content, I cannot speak to the program's suitability as an LMS, but it is an excellent solution for obtaining content that can be used in your own LMS. They offer a wide range of topics, the courses are just the right length, and the files never give me any issues exporting, loading into our LMS, and users rarely have trouble viewing the files. If you are looking for content to be added to your own LMS, BizLibrary is the way to go. What I know of it as an LMS, it seems like there would be content overload for a student. With so much content, it might be hard for a student to narrow down what they would like to take.

TalentLMS is excellent for quick microlearning since it offers a comprehensive library of courses on various topics. For own classes, their editor is straightforward to use and efficient + it provides a good mix of interactive elements, like the option to use screenshots with interactive annotations. It is not the best solution if you want highly granular data on how your users are doing (on the "new UI"). However, from what I've been told, they are looking into that. Their out-of-the-box courses are not intended to be stand-alone learning material, so don't expect that.

Pros
BizLibrary
  • Client success managers, in addition to helping with course selection, give advice on building your learning program.
  • The BizLibrary tech team was instrumental in working with my LMS provider to tackle some technical challenges.
  • The biggest strength BizLibrary has, in addition to its huge content library, is a team truly dedicated to your success.

Cons
BizLibrary
  • The reporting options changed when the program was updated. You have to go through more steps to find the data to download. I would like more canned reports.
  • Adding a new learner is easy, but it takes more time to get them into the right group. We segment learners by company and role to make assigning topics easier for us.

  • We have courses that are required for each employee based on their job title, and then, many courses we consider to be elective for that job title. We have not found a method to distinguish between those in order to view an employee's performance on required courses only.
  • Reports are only available by user ID or user name. We have some facilities or managers who need the user ID (based on payroll entry) and some that need names (employees they interact with each day).

When reaching out for support, BL is quick to respond. Even if they do not have a solution - such as when lessons were retired without a replacement - they are always thoughtful and informed.

TalentLMS's Customer service team has an awesome response rate to all of my inquiries. They always send a very detailed response with screenshots of what I need to do and I find that to be very helpful. I also like that they send an email warning when they are about to close a ticket

We had no problems at all with the implementation. That being said, we did not have too much to properly implement content-wise since we had no prior LMS. After we activated, we mostly started creating or porting content manually. The overall account setup is straightforward and out of the box, making the implementation very quick. SSO works flawlessly as well.

Alternatives Considered
BizLibrary
We selected BizLibrary because it had the most robust system that pertained to our employee base. We have found that that has resulted in users engaging in several areas in addition to those required. The price was better that some and worse that some, but we felt that it provided the best value and that has proven to be the case.

Both are good, but the pricing and general value proposition of Talent LMS are better than Trainual in my opinion. Trainual is a bit more modern and cleaner looking from a user interface perspective, but it comes at a higher cost. Both platforms provide very similar features in the way of general functionality and user experience, but Talent LMS wins because of its better pricing model.

Return on Investment
BizLibrary
  • Employee engagement feedback related to the need for learning & development has already seen an uptick. Many express alot of gratitude/appreciation for the JIT learning opportunity.
  • 1st year ROI achieved with first half-dozen employees who participated in courses which were otherwise budgeted to be taken as one-day, offsite sessions from other (classroom) vendors.
  • Broad-based management support was at first a struggle, to be candid, but as employees have completed courses and then we've followed up, managers are now providing positive feedback from their perspective.

  • It works really well in our business area, where our processes require certain courses to be reset and certificates removed if a specific course is not completed so that the learners can become competent again in products.
  • Easy integration with our AS400 to manage the product competency indicators from TalentLMS.
