Bridge is suited for scenarios where you need ppl to complete steps in order or test that they received the correct amount of knowledge after watching a video. I do think Bridge is less appropriate for companies that use it in external training scenarios as there is some key functionality missing. We gotten very good at brainstorming and finding solutions/ways to get Bridge to work the way that we need it to

I think it can be very helpful and generate great ROI if you are a big company with a lot of recruitment processes running. It provides a centralized management view and a lot of resources/features. It can be too much and become hard to manage if you have spot and urgent demands, since it takes time to start getting results from the system, considering its learning curve.

Bridge does a good job of providing user information for managers. Managers can quickly and easily see how many courses their reports are enrolled in and if anyone is overdue on required courses. Bridge is also built with learning science in mind. There are multiple options for assessments, including an option for verified tasks to be completed to demonstrate proficiency. Read full review It has the ability to be easy to use and has multiple components that make it easy to quickly find employees. I really enjoy using PageUp because once you're trained in it, it's very easy to use. It's especially strong in being able to organize manage positions and you're able to put as much information as you need on the job descriptions.

Being able to create tables, infographics, and other training materials right in the system would be a great time saver.

It would be great to have tools to make easier the deployment of simple and quick recruitment process, reducing the learning curve to use the product. A version in Portuguese would make everything easier for us. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It has been very useful to our organization in getting compliance training complete. We have a 24/7/365 organization with some folks only working 2 days a week during the summer only, many work full-time jobs elsewhere and can't make weekday programs and facilities don't have to alter schedules to get mass numbers of people through training like you have to do with live training..

Even our folks who fought using it realized how easy it was once they took their first course.

Our challenges were internal - nothing with Bridge. We had regular, productive meetings with our implementation representative.

Our previous LMS was Symphony. Hands down, there is no comparison. Switching to Bridge was the best decision made by our management team. All we used Symphony for was for our monthly compliance training. Many times people would complain that they would need to retake their compliance course as Symphony would lose records. It became a hassle having to retake a course because you didn't save a copy of the completion certificate. Bridge allows for more than just compliance training AND we are able to see if learners didn't complete their courses via the reports.

I have only used PageUp
Read full review Return on Investment Certainly, Bridge was not an inexpensive option when we were reviewing platforms. To date, we have not seen a positive ROI but believe that will happen in the near future as we expand an offering of an additional program. Reviews from our users indicate that they appreciate the professional and easy to use features Bridge provides, along with the video based design of the program. The program we developed with the Bridge platform supports our position as educators in our industry.
