We use Absorb across our entire organization across dozens of office locations throughout the United States. We deliver all of our organization-created courses as well as off the shelf courses to all of our employees, including new hire orientation as well as individual training modules. This has helped us tremendously in cutting costs from traveling to locations to do training as well as creating a standard form of training across all locations.
  • Standardized training for all employees.
  • Easy delivery of new hire orientation courses.
  • Automated creation of manager groups.
  • Easier way of seeing who employees report to so we can create manager groups.
Absorb is very well suited for any company looking to standardize training for all employees. It is also best suited when paired with a course vendor to pick specific courses aimed towards employees and their interests. This makes orientation very simple. We used to have a 2-hour orientation conference to cover everything these courses can cover.
Support is very helpful when needed. It is easy to open a ticket and support is always quick to assist in getting the issue fixed the first time. My only issue was an issue we had for a long time when trying to get the file feed up and running which never seemed to work right, however it does now work correctly the way we want it to.

We use Absorb across 3 different groups: Internal, Partners, and Customers to educate and enable learners on various topics. Topics range from soft skills to product specific technical skills. Our learners range from unlimited access to single course access. Some learners have 0 cost and others pay by the course using Absorb's shopping cart.
  • Clean interface for learners
  • Logical organization of courses
  • Admin portal is OK
  • Customer Support is unresponsive and poor
  • Inconsistent interface in the product
  • Reporting out of Absorb is cumbersome
  • No search functionality within courses.
Absorb worked well for us for a number of years but once we started to push the limits of the software, the company and the product let us down. Support became unresponsive and the product enhancements that we were told were coming never did.
Poor response time and generally poor responses.
