We have been very pleased with BizLibrary. The best thing is that we are able to reach everyone across the U.S. and provide consistent training. We use it primarily for management and leadership training. Our employees have enjoyed the classes and say that frequently they learn something new and if not, the content provides a good refresher

It is well suited for enhancing your current curriculums and allowing learners the ability to expand their knowledge with current book selections. It is a valuable asset to eLearning courses and for developing your employees

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.

Skillsoft Books

  • Books 24x7 is very good at keeping their content up to date, offering new selections on a regular basis.
  • The books are easy to search for by topic and can be sorted and stored for future reading in a custom library.
  • The selection of books is very versatile and multi-faceted.

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.

Skillsoft Books

  • Increase the number of books offered in both eBook and audiobook
  • Increase the catalog by creating a section for online articles not just books

Books 24x7 is a useful tool for growth, knowledge sharing, and overall intellectual health within the company. Our company has been very forward thinking in offering this to every employee. As a result, people have been able to grow in areas they may not have previously explored because of the free access to resources they may not have bothered with before they had free access to them.

It is very easy to use and when you don't know how to use something it is not hard to find out how.

The ability to read and/or listen to books offline is very helpful especially while flying and in remote areas with no internet. The books are easy to load on your laptop, phone or tablet. This is invaluable.

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.

We have used no other products similar to Books 24x7. I am certain that HR probably tested or reviewed several options before settling on this product, but I have no information related to why they decided on Books 24x7.

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.
Brad Holliday, PHR, SHRM-CP, CBM, MBA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skillsoft Books

  • The product has improved the furthering education aspect of all jobs within in the company by offering access to books both inside and outside the employees job description.
  • Workgroups have be able to read books at the same time while cooperating on a certain initiative, allowing for open conversations in relation to what they are reading.
  • Our company's leadership initiatives have been strengthened due to the free access to leadership related material offered within Books 24x7.
