    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.

    Recruiting new personnel is always a challenge, since making the right decision is not always an easy task, but with Cyber Recruiter the process is easier since it has an ideal, intuitive platform with great customization power to acquire the right person. In addition, this system has effective automation to reduce human errors.

    Pros

    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.

    • The good thing about Cyber Recruiter is that it has a good database, plus I can get back in touch with applicants I've talked to before.
    • Cyber Recruiter takes care of the selection process from start to finish, this function allows us to trust that the choice will be the right one.
    • Anyone who wants to apply can do so quickly.

    Cons

    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.

    • One thing that would be really helpful is for Cyber to accept .pdf formats of resumes. Many candidates now have their resume as a pdf, not word, and it is a shame that I have to copy and paste their resume into their system, which ruins the candidates' formatted resume. If anything that is the big thing that could use a change: Cyber should accept both word docs and .pdfs
    • Sometimes Cyber gets a bit slow when I try saving a note, or send an email through Cyber. It is not often, and it does eventually go through in the end. I did check to see if it was the internet but everything else was running just fine, so I know it is Cyber when it happens. It gets stressful at times when you have a bunch of things to do in the day through Cyber, and it is acting very slow.

        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.

        Usability

        SumTotal

        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 only give it a 6 because there are small things that could use fixing. While it does get what we want done, there are things such as not letting us upload the pdf format... or getting really slow at times when it is trying to save. It's little things like that could be fixed, but overall the experience is pretty positive and it helps us get what we want done and efficiently.

        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

        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

        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.

        • Although Cyber Recruiter is said to be expensive software in the Human Resources department, there is no denying that good profits have been made by acquiring new staff. It is a very scalable software with advantages that are made known to us day by day, the system improves our workflow and increases correct decision-making.
