    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.

    For some of the topics in my organization, Skillsoft Academy is best suited due to the length of the course and the ease to understand. However, the courses are very limited being a Cloud user. There are various platforms that offer a wide range of courses for Cloud. Though Skillsoft offers many courses, they are easy to understand which makes the user comfortable with the platform.

    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.

    • Some of the courses are too lengthy.
    • Too much courses makes confusing to choose the correct one.

        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.

        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.

        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.
