Lattice

Lattice is well suited for companies that are very focused. We use it to disseminate the OKR methodology in all of the employees of the company and it has helped a lot to make sure everybody is focused on the most important tasks and is able to think strategically and not get lost on details that do not add value.

SumTotal Talent Development

SumTotal Learn is well-suited for Life Science industries (based on my experience) from the compliance perspective and also in dealing with GxP document management. It has GDPR regulations as well hence can be used in EU regions as well. If the organization is small or medium-sized, then the license and implementation cost would be slightly high. However we get the value for the investment.

Pros

Lattice

  • Lattice helps drive the cascading of goals/objectives down thru the entire organization. (This is crucial, in my experience, as employee engagement is more easily achieved when we can create that "line of sight" for people at all levels of the company.).
  • Lattice creates a living, breathing talent management platform... allowing managers - and employees - to stop worrying about remembering all the great achievements that should be acknowledged during performance feedback discussions. The check-in feature (when used appropriately) keeps employees focused and managers informed.
  • Lattice provides an intuitive performance feedback process/platform, which is configurable to a great degree to meet the needs of our organization.

SumTotal Talent Development

  • Assign complete learning plans to users so they don't have to spend time searching for courses.
  • Export learner's transcripts so managers can easily see their employee's progress.
  • Embed Social Media feeds that are relevant to their business.

Cons

Lattice

  • The UI is so simple that it results in some constraints.
  • It would be nice to have a bit more settings that an IC can configure.

SumTotal Talent Development

  • Reporting
  • Mass importing of manual checks to be issued in California

I do not find SumTotal to be intuitive. I feel we need to adjust our needs to meet the functionality available in the tool.

Support for Lattice is timely and effective. Even if you can't speak with someone on the support team, they have a great help center online with a library of questions that are most likely to answer any question you may have. If you need to speak to someone, they will get back to you right away.

I am supporting SumTotal Learn because I have been using the product since 2015 as a user and as an implementation consultant. The application provides the overall learning solutions to large organizations. It is in compliance with GDPR, CFR 11, and other regulatory requirements hence suitable for industries having mandatory compliance requirements. From value for money to customer support, SumTotal earns good credits for its performance, features, etc.

Alternatives Considered

Lattice

I believe Lattice is the strongest of these options because it is very customizable to each organization. Its well designed and can be used for all department needs. I found the other solutions a bit too rigid, which was inconvenient. I like the flexibility I get with Lattice.

SumTotal Talent Development

When I came to my company, they had been using a "light" LMS called Articulate. It was cheap and bare bones; i.e. not a lot of features, really just a platform to launch eLearning from and not real interface for student to utilize. When I began to overhaul the training department, this was one of the first things I changed. Articulate would only run courses built in their software, and the software was not 508 compliant. In addition, we had no ability to create learning plans, house transcripts, customize the interface, or manage the students. I made the choice to select and LMS that was a true LMS with all of the features that were critical to our clients' needs. Thus far, SumTotal has been able to support all of our needs, except one; mobile learning that is media rich
