I mentioned that during the last two years, a lot of the training we do at my business was impacted, just like a lot of companies. My biggest thing was getting everyone on the same page, and I feel some software does that better than others. With Cloudshare, It allowed me especially to see an accurate snapshot of what was going on with the learning portion of the work that we do by making it easy to digest what was going on in my workplace.

You must have an IT staff with knowledge of PHP in order to install and maintain the system. This is not a plug and play solution by any means. If you have that staff, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It's a very robust system. Once we solved initial bugs caused by our own errors during installation, the support desk requests have dropped to almost zero, with nearly 2,000 users online every day. That's a good, solid program.

I'm not sure what else is out there that has the ability to do what our organization needs. We've come across things we didn't like about it, but due to costs of switching and possibly lack of other options, we'd probably renew with eFront. Also, we've invested a lot of time in the software and it seems to be satisfactory at this point.

For most situations, it is extremely easy to learn and use. There are ergonomic issues that seem a bit tedious, but overall, we are seeing a very high success rate with new registrants. They are learning the material and earning their certificates at a rapid pace. This is a good program once it is properly installed by a knowledgeable systems architect.

Two disadvantages: 1. Many staffers who respond don't know how to solve the problem using the User Interface - they want to work from the back end, to which I have no access. 2. The support staff are in Europe and I am in California, so there is an overnight delay in getting a response.

I'm not the most technical person, so some of the training didn't make sense to me. It wasn't a complete training - it was more topical. The people working at EFront were happy to answer my questions later when I resorted to learning it by doing. This was very valuable to me.

It's important to have a robust course catalog before launching. Courses should be QC'ed to be sure there are no errors or other problems. Don't let engineers write quiz questions! Remember that well-formed quiz questions are not designed to trick or fool the user - they are used to reinforce learning through repetition of important concepts. The "grade" isn't as important as the assurance the information has stuck.

I just felt that Azure had little to no help on the base tiers, whereas with Cloudshare, I felt a fuller "user experience" as it pertains to getting help when I and when my team needed it. I think that was the biggest and main thing in my opinion. In this software space, sometimes the little things can be the difference in picking one software over the other, and that basically was it for us!

Unfortunately I have not had the chance to try other products, however I would think eFront would stack up fairly well against competitors and it provides all the necessary tools to stay compliant and excel at having efficient KICs.

CloudShare
  • We save time as we can keep virtual classrooms always ready.
  • It may vary according to the usage scenario, but the user interface is comfortable. When you go into a little detail, you may not need counseling for initial use.
  • You can manage the jobs that you would do multiple times on other platforms at once from here.
  • All of these actually give you a profit. Time wasted, less application usage, less resource consumption, etc.

  • We decided not to continue the trial because it will be either very expensive or impossible to modify the system to our requirements
