SumTotal Talent Development

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.

Love the customization of the platform. It has a lot more flexibility than other platforms which, as our organization is in the unique niche of workforce development, is necessary. The ability to build out multifaceted courses using the 41 interactive content tools is amazingly helpful in efforts to teach to the different learning styles. End users are able to interact with the content and take on a more active learning role than they would in most other platforms.

  • Tovuti [LMS] provides a ton of interactive activity design capabilities - this is really important for the demographic we work with and allows for a variety of accommodations.
  • Tovuti's support and on-boarding teams are spectacular. My questions have always been confirmed and resolved within a 24-hour time period.
  • Tovuti [LMS] is simple to use and direct in navigation, both on the user and administrator sides.

Cons

SumTotal Talent Development

  • Reporting
  • Mass importing of manual checks to be issued in California
  • Ability to fund pay cards immediately
  • Perform gross-up calculations within the payroll system automatically

Tovuti LMS

  • The backend is incredibly convoluted and confusing and requires many many hours of practice and coaching to learn to use it
  • It takes nine clicks to do something that should take two. There are several examples of this on the backend in terms of organizing lessons within a course, Assigning courses, getting reporting, Etc. It's all very convoluted.
  • You can't download files that you've uploaded into the system which doesn't make any sense

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.

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

Tovuti was easy to use and start using. A lot of our employees don't feel confident in the software we assign, which requires a lot of training. Though on the flip side, employees that we've given management access to Tovuti were quickly able to set up their own trainings, and feel more confident than expected!

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.

Tovuti support is the best. They are so quick to respond and do all they can to help answer your questions. Their help website is informative and easy to use. It is one of the best support teams I have worked with

Alternatives Considered

SumTotal Talent Development

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

In 2015 my company did a deep dive of the five top rated LMS in the industry. None of them did exactly what we wanted and ALL of them were cost prohibitive in a competitive B2B market in the automotive industry. I am sure authoring and content management has taken a huge leap for everyone the past 5 years, but Tovuti has the features we need with lower cost.
