    [SalesHood] has been helpful during virtual onboarding when the team is not able to get together for in-person trainings. And the ability to test retention is helpful for the user and for management as well. However, it is one of those platforms that takes time out of what a rep does best, which is sell, so it may not be the most well received.

    SumTotal

    I personally, am not a fan of SumTotal. I have worked on several different HRIS and Payroll systems which outweigh all aspects of SumTotal (Lawson Interface Desktop, Ceridian Dayforce, ADP Enterprise, and Ultimate Software's UltiPro). As antiquated as Lawson felt, it had more functionality than SumTotal. Of course, all others I worked on were for the most part cloud based and had modern functionality to go with it.

    SumTotal

    • 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

    SalesHood

    • Finding a specific training path that I'm looking for can be difficult via browsing. Best way is to use the search bar.
    • I wish there was a way to provide peer feedback. It might be a setting that our team just doesn't use, but it would be nice to see questions that peers have, or places they're struggling and to be able to comment or reach out directly to help.

    SumTotal

    • Navigation (too many clicks to get anything done).
    • Reporting is complicated.
    • Buttons everywhere that don't do anything.
    • Features enabled that don't fully work or function the way they should.
    • Support for the product is lacking.

      IT has been useful and better than some of the other tools we have used.

      SumTotal

      I have transitioned from a position who supported the product to a position where I use the product. I continue to be impressed with the robustness of the product and how efficient it is. It is a user friendly software that can be used to navigate and accomplish tasks to meet organizational requirements.

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

      SalesHood

      Our CSM at SalesHood is always responsive to us, we see the support team respond to our queries quickly, and even the CEO Elay Cohen is entirely plugged in. If an in-app NPS score is rendered that looks to be unfavorable, they reach out to understand why and to see if they can help turn the experience around if it's education or enhancement that's needed. It's a great team there to support you.

      SumTotal

      We have our own IT support to assist in SumTotal issues, however, we have had to log in cases directly. Support is mediocre at best.

      Alternatives Considered

      SalesHood

      I chose SalesHood because I knew the team is amazing based on my past relationship with them, and because I knew the features met the needs my organization had. They may not have had all the frills that other vendors have, but we didn't need frills. We needed functionality and flexibility.

      SumTotal

      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

      SumTotal

      • 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.
