I think it's great for small companies to manage their basic HR functions if they do not have a dedicated department. I'm unsure of the capabilities it holds for a large company with multiple teams to organize and how the calendaring functions across departments. But, for our team of roughly 20 folks it is simple and straightforward.

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

Netsuite SuitePeople

  • It's great for time tracking - I can look at when and how much time I have taken off, what I am accruing each month, which helps me plan vacations and other needed time off.
  • It's a great place to share appreciation for a team member/department so all folks can see without clogging inboxes with emails.
  • It's a great go-to place for company information and policies - no digging through the server or emailing HR for documents and questions.

Cons

Netsuite SuitePeople

  • I would like even more capabilities, but I think that has to do with how we are using the site.
  • I would like to receive email notifications once a week with a summary of activity in TribeHR, including time-off scheduled by my team and any new documents or information that has been added.
  • I'd like reminders if I am going to go over my time off that is allotted to carry over into the new year and other pertinent vacation, floating holiday, sick time notifications.

  • 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.

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.

We did not previously have an HR product at our company. As stated earlier in my review, we often had to send emails back and forth with our CEO and part-time CFO to get answers regarding policies, payroll and time-off. This has eased the load for these two individuals so that they can focus on the business and revenue.

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

Return on Investment

Netsuite SuitePeople

  • As I stated it has alleviated numerous back and forth emails with our CFO (who is only available PT) and CEO (who is often too busy to spend time on HR functions) - this has allowed for easy answers to basic HR questions.
  • It has allowed us to track all employee time-off in one place, saving us time from checking each individual Outlook calendar for scheduling purposes.
  • It has allowed us to direct all employees to one place for core HR documents and information, ensuring that folks are always getting the same answers to their inquiries.

SumTotal Talent Development

  • Clean front-end user interface for easier course catalog management.
  • Reporting has been more difficult than previous LMS.
  • Audience building has more variables making it more difficult to manage.
  • Slower overall client turnaround due to admin side interface.
