I think CSOD is great for most organizations it does have a hefty price tag so making sure the robustness is leveraged is important when choosing the correct system for your organization. I appreciate that they have quarterly releases so the product is getting updates often versus some other LMSs when that is less frequent.

Zywave Client Cloud - Enrollment & Onboarding

For clients looking for a communications portal this is a perfect fit. However, for clients looking to do online enrollment it is still lacking key features that other systems like Employee Navigator offers.

Pros

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • The user group community is unlike any other. It is easy to connect with other clients and the CSOD team is actively engaged, always interested in what clients want and need.
  • Vast content catalog from a wide variety of providers. Content delivery service makes my job easier. I don't have to deal with course files and metadata!
  • Ease of use for non-admin admins! I was not a LMS administrator prior to implementation so I learned as I went which was fully supported by the robust training available to system admins.

  • Benefit enrollment
  • Document management
  • Yearly benefit management and optional coverage

Cons

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Reduce the number of clicks: for competencies bank management, it is necessary to save twice at least before submitting any modification.
  • Allow sorting by different means (names, ID etc), by default competencies are listed by alphabetical order which for our particular field is not the most convenient.

  • The onboarding of employees with benefits selection is not quite complete as it pertains to full integrations with carrier feeds and EDI solutions for HIPAA 834 Transactions
  • The ultimate solution would be to integrate with payroll systems such as ADP, PayChex or Paylocity. This would eliminate the need to input and update data in multiple systems
  • Integration to HR systems like Oracle or other HR platforms would be a bonus

As long as pricing stays reasonable, we will likely stay with Cornerstone for at least one more contract renewal. It would be a large task to migrate all of our content to a new system. However, the LMS landscape is diversifying with new startups that are showing some real innovation.

User adoption is low within the client base that we have implemented this at and unless it can offer full EDI capabilities we will not be able to move away from Employee Navigator or Plan Source solutions

Usability

The system is huge so, even after using it as an administrator for a few years, I still find there are lots of pieces and things I do not know. Some of the more everyday tasks have cumbersome user interfaces that you become accustomed to but would be greatly helped by a redesign. The availability of assistance articles and the new knowledge bank help greatly with usability as you have a quick place you can go to for help with figuring out how to do various tasks.

Pages do not load quickly. Often times any action or selection of a box, drop down, check, pretty much ANY Javascript interaction causes the whole entire page to load/reload/start doing something in the background. This makes a nightmare for having to mass edit courses or upload ILT sessions. It's the one of the archaic web designs they use that really bugs me as an admin and makes working in the portal at times intolerable and insufferable

I included this information in my overall review, but I thought ADP was THE vendor to highlight for their bad customer service. [I feel] Cornerstone OnDemand goes above and beyond (or should I say down and below) anything ADP had set up for customer support: Only certain people can call / email directly if there are issues, so you must play "telephone" a bit to get your issue defined clearly; you can sign up for a weekly "office hours" session, but you must queue up and then listen to other customers as they try to resolve their issues; you can submit recommendations, but you NEVER hear back or your recommendation is just dismissed.

The online modules are pretty good. You can access them at any time, which we have done. You learn a lot in the beginning, but having the ability to retake short lessons when you are working on those items was very helpful.

Dig deep on what your current processes are and how they match up to Cornerstone OnDemand functionality. It's not that the Cornerstone OnDemand is bad, it just the amount of work it requires you to do to get your current data to fit into their system.

Alternatives Considered

Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone OnDemand exceeds the features of these other LMS systems by offering more modules and features. CSOD is a one-stop shop LMS for talent management. The robust reporting and customizable options also make this a step above the other Learning Management Systems out there.

We actually use HRconnection with a select few clients and use Employee Navigator, Plan Source, and ThinkHR because our clients or the carriers offered them to us as an online enrollment or training options

Return on Investment

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Our initial goal was to track course compliance. We have met and exceeded that goal. The system provides an easy way for administrators, managers, and learners to track their assignments and course status.
  • Our secondary goals was to increase employee engagement. Once we migrated to their Learner Home page, we saw an increase in non-regulatory course registrations and completions.

  • Easily see my enrollments
  • Signing up for additional benefits I may have forgotten about like an HSA or FSA
