Absorb LMS is used to train the employees of the company as well as for customer training. The main business problem that the product addresses is that it keeps the learners engaged. The entire LMS is very intuitive and learners love exploring new content and courses and find it very easy to use. The other scope of use is that we are able to structure the content and make learning plans for learners and the rest of the process remains automated once the learning plan is assigned to the learners.
  • The Admin panel is very intuitive and easy to use.
  • The customizability and flexibility of the system out of the box is great plus the option of using API, scheduled data imports really expand its possibilities to be a custom fit for us.
  • The support team has great ideas, extremely responsive and pleasant to work with.
  • Communication of updates in the Platform can be improved.
  • Social interactions amongst the learners can be improved to facilitate an environment of learning.
  • A quick search bar can be added to search for courses.
Absorb LMS is a very easy-to-use, intuitive solution to your LMS requirements. The platform comes loaded with features and is completely plug-and-play. It has been developed for mid-size to large organizations. It helps to organize your learning content in a way that you will see a boost in the learning engagement right from the start. The platform can help organizations reach their learning and development goals regardless of whom training is being training are provided. It may not be very suitable for very small organizations or startups due to its pricing and what I feel is that it has been designed keeping the requirements of the mid-size to large organizations.

My entire organization uses Absorb LMS. Every single day we have online training courses that must be completed. We used to use a different platform to house & track our continuing education course work, but now we use Absorb [LMS]. The overall cleanliness of the look has really improved since we switched over to Absorb [LMS]. I must admit, I liked our previous platform (Bridge) better for checking the progress of the users.
  • The notification system is great
  • Absorb is very intuitive and user friendly
  • The look and face of the platform is very clean
  • It's somewhat challenging to navigate for managers tracking employees
  • It could use a feature to track the conversations we have with employees
  • Tracking learner progress could be better
I would definitely recommend Absorb LMS to a family member, friend, or colleague. My overall experience using this program and platform has been a positive one. It's pretty user-friendly, and the navigation is overall an intuitive one. For employees using this solely for continuing education, it's straightforward & easy to use. For managers tracking the progress of the learners, I believe there's some room for improvement.

[Absorb LMS] is being used to provide customer training and enablement. It will also be leveraged to train employees internally. We have chosen to use [Absorb LMS] in order to more quickly train our customers when onboarding. In this way, we can leverage high-value content to allow our customers to consume training in the field where and when they want it.
  • Ease of use
  • Simple interface
  • High degree of customization
  • Ability to offer paid for content
  • Simpler implementation
  • Out of the box data migration
[Absorb LMS] is well suited for organizations that have the ability to create and customize their own content. Content creation and maintenance require dedicated resources and smaller organizations will require the expertise in order to create, maintain, and update content. Reporting is fairly simple but provides the basics. Advanced reporting will require additional 3rd party software/integration.

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.
