    Although there are endless tools that provide the same function as SAP Litmos, none will give you the ability to form professional teams, it does not go from the individuality of a professional, it encompasses much more than that, it goes from there to forming collaborative teams and participating with integrated functions, it is comforting to feel the greater commitment of all the members and to know that we can contribute so that each person grows professionally is undoubtedly gratifying. This has given us much more than training and that is why I want to recommend it.

    It is not very well suited for a highly dynamic company. Suppose it's a startup, and your job is to just be everywhere and work as a generalist, and there are people like you in the company; it'll be hard to monitor and track those people in terms of constant updates regarding their roles and performance.

    Pros

    SAP

    • Administrative functions - ease of use and ability to move across the system
    • SAP content (more specifically, the cartoon learning pack produced out of the UK)
    • SAP Litmos itself provides good customer service - the move to SAP did not lead to this
    • Hierarchy and team assignment rules
    • Course creation and upload
    • Integrations of with many different platforms we use
    • Lightheartedness - we love Lenny! We wish there was a way we could incorporate Lenny into our own learning offerings

    • They do a good job of rolling out new features, making sure everyone is aware of what it is, when it will happen, and providing materials.
    • They do a good job at getting their clients together and/or in touch with one another. This is always helpful to see what others have done and how it worked out, especially in the same sector of work.

    Cons

    SAP

    • Support pages are much too complicated
    • Support page needs to be designed for one product, not every product
    • I would like a representative to whom I could ask simple questions without going thru support tickets
    • They eliminated our own onboarding person to help understand the program when we purchased it so I have to research every question I have--a real time waster

    SAP

    • Sometimes products are rolled out too fast - resulting in critical missing config options (ONB 2.0 as a great example). These missing configs can be highly dysfunctional until they are resolved - to avoid this, I recommend not using any product that hasn’t been established and fully supported for at least 2 years.
    • Performance and recruitment are still using a legacy XML supported format - which is fine end user functionality wise, but can be complex to support from an admin perspective - certain areas of these modules require partner support if you want to make upgrades or changes.
    • SF does a tremendous job at bell and whistle functionality - I often find most companies are not able to leverage more than 50-75% of the offerings though. There are however core functions or areas for improvement that are significantly less shiny but are much needed in various modules.

        For what we need in the very near future, Litmos does not offer us the required capability. Ideally, we are looking for an integrated LMS, coaching, mobile support and content creation platform. Litmos may have the LMS part covered but there are other platforms that do this better along with providing an integrated all-in-one service or at the very least support API integration with other vendors to meet our requirements.

        Support is still lacking. If we don't have a critical business need where we're looking to license something new, there is no partnership with SuccessFactors. Unless of course you purchase the Platinum Support which we did not. It is difficult for us to take advantage of new functionality when we have professional services fees that will be incurred as a result. We're in a tough economy and our budgets are slim. We don't have wiggle room to add $5k here or $10k there. The overall integration into a total HCM solution is also lacking.

        They still have a way to go with their reporting. But, they have been working on this and they continue to improve.
        Aside from reporting, I would say that SAP Litmos performs very well. I rarely have any issues at all - even given the things I normally have open on my computer!

        Support Rating

        SAP

        The knowledgebase is very generic, so beyond some basic, "this is how you use Litmos", I am not super impressed with the self-service options for troubleshooting issues or finding best practices from peers. Getting a response from specialists also takes a great deal of effort. The initial ticket is almost never where my answer comes from, so I have to wait on the escalation to take place, and usually that goes to an account specialist. Once I get that, there is usually a back and forth before we agree on what the issue is. Service is always courteous, but not efficient. I am never sure where my ticket stands with regard to escalation/processing, so I have to inquire. Service tickets and service are not a clean process right now, at least not for me. Nothing like it was during our implementation.

        SuccessFactors Employee Central gets a middle of the road rating from me because of the things it does really well - Training. It falls short with the objectives cascade and visibility amongst my reports. That's what brings it down to a 5. Objectives need to be clear and concise in order to gain buy-in from your reports, and SuccessFactors muddies that by poor delineation between cascaded attributes and my report's objectives. The whole objectives cascade can be reworked.

        Implementation Rating

        SAP

        We have done two implementations. The first wasn't completed by me, but the second was. I had to do a lot of data migration across from the first system into the new instance. This was really time-consuming, and it would have been great to have had an option for someone else to have completed this for us. Learning about the tool has also been up to us, and whilst the content was good, it was also high level and broad, and then getting into the specifics of our setup was really just left to us to complete on our own and have a go. We got there, but probably could have been faster with some additional support from a consultant.

        Alternatives Considered

        SAP

        I evaluated around 8 learning management systems including Cornerstone and chose SAP Litmos because it was priced well but had all the bells and whistles that would be essential for a corporate level LMS. It was easy to set up initially and had the best customer support.

        I feel SAP SuccessFactors is catching up on the user interface and the flexibility that is available to configure and manage business processes. You can tell that SAP SuccessFactors is making a strong push to bring SAP forward from the very technical look and feel of legacy SAP HR products. There is a much clearer focus on the employee and non-HR users.
