Excellent product although greater support and more education at implementation would have ensured my project team would have had a greater understanding of the system, including migration of historical data to ensure its structured in the best way .the system is well suited to large organisations where staff work out of multiple sites and multiple devices including mobile devices.

Lessonly

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.

Pros

Kallidus LMS

  • Web based and supported on various devices -allowing access via any web enabled device
  • Entirely customisable - Easy to make the system look the way we need to ensure corporate image

Lessonly

  • 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.

Cons

Kallidus LMS

  • Simpler hosting of e-learning - scorm objects can be slow AICC seems to be the best solution
  • Options to link / interface with other workforce systems
  • Greater flexibility of learning pathways

Lessonly

  • 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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Kallidus LMS

Kallidus, delivered all the functions that were required and the potential to add performance and talent through one system were big pluses. the ability to personalise and the simple admin functions have been hugely benefcial
Darryn Allcorn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lessonly

What really enticed us about Lessonly was the presentation of the business and how it can help us by the customer service team. They were very passionate and eager to present new ideas for us which helped in the decision making process over different tools we looked at such as MindTickle and SAP Litmos. Although we liked SAP Litmos too, the customer service team didn't seem as enthusiastic and this was the main reason why Lessonly won us over. What's important is that this is mainly a HR tool, but we in different departments were also allowed to use it and this gave us greater flexibility.

Return on Investment

Kallidus LMS

  • Significantly increased compliance of mandatory training
  • supported more staff to choose elearning over face to face options, increasing efficiency
  • Automated many of the admin processes that underpin training
Darryn Allcorn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lessonly

  • 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.
