Lessonly

Lessonly can be used anywhere a digital learning system works. We use a mix of hands-on training and curriculum. For training our photographers, they go through the lessons with a camera on the desk to test with and tangibly learn what they are reading. Same with our production teams, we have physical representations of the camera cards and order forms that they will be dealing with on a daily basis to help solidify the training they are receiving from Lessonly. It frees up our full-time staff to get prepared for the new season. Once the new hires are done with their assigned lessons, they are ready to start shadowing staff. All of the training and shadowing is done in one day and they are ready to hit the ground running on day two! Lessonly has greatly increased our productivity.

Trainual

I have enjoyed using Trainual as an employee, and also creating new Trainual subjects for my employees. Trainual allows for videos to be added as well as images, text, gifs, and more! This array of options allows us to communicate with all types of learners quickly and effectively. I think Trainual is best suited for education-related opportunities such as employee on-boarding, employee training, or education courses. Because each subject is broken down into tasks and steps, it gets super granular which is great, but it's best used for education and not general employee notifications.

Pros

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.

Trainual

  • The ability to get very granular with detail.
  • The ability to integrate different types of media for different kinds of learners.
Julianna Oates | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

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.

Trainual

  • Not a ton of template customization.
  • Wish we could segment users even more.

This is one of the main reasons I keep going back to Lessonly. The customer service is some of the best I've ever experienced. From the sales process to the work with your customer success rep, Lessonly by far beats out the competitors in this area.

I haven't contacted Trainual's support team, but I take that as a positive because I haven't needed to! The platform is easy to use, attractive (that counts for something), and everything is in a logical place when you do have a question and go searching for an answer. I have 0 complaints!

Alternatives Considered

Lessonly

We use Skilljar for our external LMS. I found that Skilljar was less user friendly than Lessonly. Lessonly has proven to be much easier to use on the backend and that was the main reason we went with them instead of just using Skilljar for our company LMS.

Trainual

  • This is our first time using anything like this!
  • Previously we just wrote task items in shared Google documents. It was the best of what we could do at the time, but this is a whole different world, and we love it! Being able to integrate quizzes and photos and interactive video is excellent!

Return on Investment

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.

Trainual

  • Trainual has very positively help us in on-boarding new employees! Everyone is provided the same information about company structure, mission, vision, etc.
  • Trainual has helped us solidify and keep consistent with our training of new employees. We are able to train people faster and they seem to be retaining the information better!
