Kallidus
It is great for just about any organization that does onboarding and training as it saves time and assists in keeping your team on track while bringing on new people. It helps to streamline a typically very difficult process for smaller teams. It has helped us immensely.

I think that SmarterU can be implemented in any organization in any industry. Especially in industries with more complex training requirements. The administration of the system is simple and the usability of the system to end users is even more simple

This is the only product I have used and it is great. I have not explored other options and we have not had the need to so far.

Neovation Corporation (SmarterU)
Most online LMS systems work really well to track and manage training that the system is delivering. However, most systems are not very good at managing training requirements which are delivered outside of the system. For example, First Aid training, or license requirements are accomplished through third party. SmarterU was the only system we evaluation that was able to track these items with the ability to monitor the renew dates properly.

  • It has helped us to make sure our training is consistent across multiple locations and trainers and ensured less drift.
  • The course tracking and certification allows us to manage new hires and make sure they complete all required training to later achieve an RBT certification.
