SumTotal

Very good for learning and development and training of employees. For Applicant tracking, recuirement, onboarding, and enablement, I prefer SAP SuccessFactors or Skillate. I also found that the SumTotal app is not very friendly on android and crashes sometimes and it is not optimized for mobile. Hence I end up never using it.

TempWorks is a really great tool overall, especially in tracking the recruitment process. Managing candidate info is easy with TW, and the messages feature helps to notate any and all candidate interactions. On my end I don't use the other functionalities of the software, but I do enjoy being able to pull up a variety of reports in order to track my own set goals in regard to my performance.

      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.

      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.

      I give this a zero on all fronts. In fact, I tried to reach out to the CEO multiple times to help me resolve challenges we were having and he did not respond to me once. Had he responded we probably would still be with them today.

      Alternatives Considered

      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

      The way in which I utilize TW now is a bit antiquated compared to the online portals that I used with Bullhorn and Crelate. I think the simplicity of the funtionality of TW is much easier to navigate than Bullhorn and Crelate, however I think it really depends on your permissions of use, flexibility in customization, etc. I feel as though Bullhorn did a great job of search functionality, as it was easier to search for candidates on the online platform with a search bar up top that you could literally type anything into and the candidate would automatically populate under the search bar. Ex. If I were looking up a candidate by their phone number, I would start typing it in any format (3176541277 or 317-654-1277 or (317) 654-1277) and no matter what the corresponding candidate would pop up as I typed. Same with email, first or last name, etc.

      Return on Investment

      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.
