CrossKowledge offers a superb library of learning content and a serviceable learning management system to go with it. If you’re looking for robust reporting or want to minimise the time you spend managing learning administration, you should look elsewhere.

If you are onboarding new employees or consultants and you have a complex product, solution, or your business is layered and complex, this can help distill down the layers into basics so that new team or partners can build their knowledge base up the right way. This ensures they are learning what needs to be learned, and not what they surmise or assume, which can be incorrect and cause issues down the road - this is especially sensitive in our field. Training of all kinds can be done easily with this tool.
Read full review Pros CrossKnowledge provides learning content across a wide array of subjects, and this content is delivered using various delivery methods (interactive e-learning, videos, reading material, activity journals, etc.) CrossKnowledge’s learning suite makes it easy to set up and roll out a highly customised learning management system. CrossKnowledge offers a mobile app that makes it easy to access both the learning management system as well as their learning content on the go. Read full review Open to feedback and ideas and constantly innovating and iterating on their product to serve new needs that arise Making me feel like more than just a customer: They aren't transactional and focus on building the relationship and making me feel heard. Extremely easy to use product so building content takes little time, and I can leverage other subject matter experts to build content as well. Read full review Cons As a learning management system, CrossKnowledge’s backend is missing several key features for learning administrators It is immensely difficult to set up learning events and managing invitations to learners Reporting is extremely limited: you can only see the reports that CrossKnowledge seems necessary; you have very limited customisation options, and many of the basic reporting functions are simply impossible Read full review Media import (audio, video) are still in infancy. Reliability of uploaded content isn't 100%. The Events function lacks some features that are more built out in other platforms. Reporting interface has a bit of a learning curve, but overall isn't bad. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
CrossKnowledge’s learning content makes it a no-brainer. Besides, while their LMS isn’t as powerful or robust as we’d have liked, it’s still serviceable and most of our learners aren’t directly affected by it.

Worried about its acquisition by Seismic and hope that they don't change the product or the terms drastically.

It's completely simple and intuitive, anyone can pick it up. The hardest part is looking for a save button and finally figuring out you don't need one. We don't provide training for users and never have complaints. For creators, we provide best practices, but using Lessonly itself requires nothing .

The support team is very friendly and eager to help you learn the ins and outs of Lessonly. They can set up training for large groups or send links in a chat for individual help. They are quick to respond and if one person doesn't have the answer, they will collaborate with others to help find the answer.

is a far more powerful and flexible learning management system for learning administrators. Where CrossKnowledge has the edge is in its fabulous learning content library.

I felt some of these products had more features than were necessary and needed for our team. Some of them were limited on the number of content creators that were allowed which to me forces you to use one or two people to create content where I would rather see it done by key members of each department.
Read full review Return on Investment It’s extremely difficult to evaluate ROI of a tool like CrossKnowledge, but it’s only been a little over a year since we rolled it out across the organisation and we’ve already made it part of our performance management system Read full review We've had an increase in quality overall as a company, as we are able to continually train our employees outside of our New Hire Training program. We've seen stronger communication as we are able to send out material to our stylists about products, policies, procedures, etc. and they are able to provide us with feedback. After all, it is their tool for learning and we want to know the best way to provide that information to our Team Members. Read full review
