Grovo is fantastic for bringing a team of people up to speed and for teaching a few things to a large audience. We found Grovo to be lacking when specific training is required or when the training required a certain level of skill. Grovo is fantastic for broad training, less so for specific depth training

For open source content it is excellent, over 16000 learning assets to work with. In this case, you allow learners to search and select what they need, when they need it, and how it supports their learning style. There are also uses cases where you need to curate a channel (compliance, DEI, etc.) where you can guide the learner and audiences to the content and track completion

  • Skillport's user interface is relatively dated compared to many of its competitors.
  • While the content library is large, much of the content appears to have come from at least 5-10 years ago.

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.

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 we have had issues with Grovo not working or a problem with report we have always gotten an answer quickly. We have a rep that we speak to often to make sure we are satisfied with the system and is just a quick email away. It nice to know we have support that will get back to you in a quick manner as we rely on this software.

Me and my other employees frequently reach out to support to address issues and they always help us in a timely manner. They are willing to work with you to solve and issue and are always available for help at any time. We haven't run into any instances where our problems didn't get solved.

The elephant in the room for me, would be TreeHouse. Grovo is very similar to TreeHouse in the fact that they're both programs with lesson tracks, simple and short videos, as well as progress trackers. I would have to say that I enjoyed learning coding on TreeHouse over Grovo, based on the wide variety of native coding languages they have implemented. Grovo, although extremely similar and easy to use as well, doesn't stack up to TreeHouse in my opinion. Grove does, however, beat out Lynda in my humble opinion

I haven't used any other online training system except for Skillport, and I wasn't the person who selected it. However, our organization usually uses pretty decent technology when it comes to training, and I trust that they felt this was the best choice for our organization versus the alternative options

  • Zero impact. When we determined they were not a good fit for us, we decided to go another direction. I would certainly try them again however if they addressed my concerns as their service was excellent.
