BizLibrary is a corporate-focused learning management software solution. The vendor provides a searchable library of prebuilt courses and materials that are mobile-accessible and include assessment and gamification capabilities.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/ej/ZK/28C0UV74GO38.PNGA Huge Learning Content Library is Nothing Without the Right TeamWe had a learning management system (LMS), but it was not very user friendly. We switched to a different one and BizLibrary is the content provider we selected to load relevant courses into our LMS.,Client success managers, in addition to helping with course selection, give advice on building your learning program. The BizLibrary tech team was instrumental in working with my LMS provider to tackle some technical challenges. The biggest strength BizLibrary has, in addition to its huge content library, is a team truly dedicated to your success.,As a third party consumer of the BizLibrary content (meaning, we use courses from their content library in our LMS, versus their LMS) I'd love to see streamlined processes for clients like us in getting the courses into our LMS.,10,When we explained that our long-term goal was to build an award-winning learning culture at our company the team at BizLibrary embraced that vision along with us. So the return on investment is better stated as return on experience. We now have a learning library chock filled with great courses that are easy to use. This is a boon for our growing learning culture. Our owners look at the investments that they make in the company from the perspective of "Does it make sense for our business and our team?" The investments made in the learning technology used by the learning and talent development department are no different.,LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com),Adobe Captivate, Adobe Captivate Prime, CamtasiaBizLibrary gives us what we need.BizLibrary is used across the organization for different types of training needs...individual development plans; legal compliance (defensive driving, harassment, etc.), safety (bloodborne pathogens, etc.) and for self-directed learning. It allows us to assign specific courses with defined due dates that employees can complete at their convenience. Status reporting provides completion tracking for follow up and recording.,Content is updated regularly so we are not assigning the same modules over and over. They also archive old content but provide plenty of advance notice before the modules are no longer available. The account representatives provide good information on marketing the application to employees and increasing usage. The tools they share save me lots of time trying to come up with a theme or idea. The support team responds very quickly. I rarely call them, but instead send messages when a problem occurs. A resolution is received in a very short amount of time.,The reporting options changed when the program was updated. You have to go through more steps to find the data to download. I would like more canned reports. Adding a new learner is easy, but it takes more time to get them into the right group. We segment learners by company and role to make assigning topics easier for us.,10,It has saved time and money for training our employees in California. There are strict requirements regarding harassment training and we can meet those requirements using Biz Library. The content is written to meet those specific needs. Our cost per employee is so reasonable that we couldn't send them to one external course for that price. With Biz Library, they can even complete certification preparation courses (such as PMP or IT programs ) for no additional fees. Those types of courses may cost up to $2000 or more in an external environment. This allows employees who may not be in those types of positions to increase their skills to advance within the company.,Cornerstone OnDemand, Saba and LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com),UltiPro, TimeClock PlusBegan our training journey with BizLibrary and never looked back!We use BizLibrary to train our leadership teams. We use it to address any gap in leadership skills. We also use it to address performance issues with our leadership team. BizLibrary provides us with a soft skill assessment tool that is helpful in identifying our soft skill limitations and then we use a combination of online assignments with classroom training to reinforce the concepts.,Guide and direct us with client success representatives IT support is phenomenal Refresh courses when they become irrelevant or outdated Provide the best variety of training topics and presentation styles,Sometimes the password issues become an issue I think their training at the annual conference needs to be more engaging. When BizLibrary employees present some (not all) of the presentations lack engagement. Videos sometimes fail to launch,10,Improved Retention Changed Behaviour Improved Moral,BizLibrary for the Win!We use BizLibrary across our organization for safety compliance and soft skills training. Leveraging the BizLibrary safety content, we have increased our safety compliance by 64% in less than six months. The online training allows our manufacturing leads to better appropriate our technicians time to pull them off the floor to complete their training.,Ease of navigation in the portal Multiple course topic options,The reporting feature could be more robust. Better filtering to narrow down dates, selecting course content, and selecting users could be better. The assignment feature should allow you to future date an enrollment, this way assignments can be planned out in advance and are not forced to be released the date it is intended. The completion features should be able to be manipulated by the admin from the employees transcript regardless if it is indirect or directly assigned. There are instances where employees may have taken the course in another manner and having the ability to mark them complete in any area of the portal on the admin side would be helpful. An admin should be able to unassign training regardless if it was direct or indirectly assigned.,10,BizLibrary has positively impacted our ROI. Our safety compliance has increased by 60%,Skillsoft Academy,Content navigation Course assignments Reporting,10Excellent LMS for multiple locations and a variety of roles.We are using BizLibrary as our LMS to facilitate training for multiple locations across 5 states. We will be utilizing it for Compliance training, Safety training, job specific skills (with our own custom content & BizLibrary content), and ongoing development for our Leadership team and all team members. The online access allows us to provide uniform training across multiple locations and the flexibility of adding our own custom content is a great feature!,Customer Support - from pre-implementation to going live and beyond Training topics - excellent content and good variety of modules available Ease of use for learners at all levels (from basic computer skills on up),Implementation Manual -- not just online "Help" -- a manual for the System who does the actual implementation would be a great help Should be able to see assigned curriculum in multiple areas for individual learners,9,We are new to using the system so it's too early to know......,Paycor and LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com),PaycorBuzz on the BizWe ask all our employees to participate in weekly BizLibrary training. During this time BizLibrary is being used to educate our employees on office and field safety, business etiquette, and proper work ethics. At the Training Department, we track who has participated, how well the material is understood, ways application is enforced at job sites, and monitor the work ethic improvement. These pieces of training could be key to helping reduce our safety hazards, and this is a great expectation.,BizLibrary Training videos are short with a long-lasting impact. BizLibrary has interaction videos that give one the option to choose multiple scenarios in order to observe "how it could play out." These make viewers think and respond. There are videos on subjects that may be less considered by viewers. These clips help reintegrate life-lessons with teachings of good skills to develop life long habits.,Sometimes you can tell that the presenter in the video is reading cue cards, and it truly gets distracting with the "heavy emphasis" on key points. Developing time management to be consistent with the demand from my department and tasked to keep up with weekly BizLibrary gets a bit frustrating. The red-orange color used for inappropriate measures or the "dont's" of certain tasks hurts my eyes.,10,Safety first. With the videos' emphasis on safety, I am noticing co-workers and myself being more aware of our surroundings.,JotFormEducation HeroesCurrently, Biz Library is our online learning portal for our entire staff. Not only do we get all of our legal requirements met, we are able to give our employees 24/7 access to thousands of online learning resources to help them improve their knowledge and skills. Whenever a department is having difficulty in a particular area, Curated Learning Paths are a great tool to use because they are specific for that group and it is content focused on one area or topic.,I believe one of Biz Library's strengths is in the people they hire. My Client Rep., Stacey Moore, visits with me on a monthly basis to talk about my needs and she is more than happy to share any material she feels would be helpful. She knows our business like it's her own and because of that, she can make suggestions that are meaningful to us. Their technical support is top notch! Whenever their is an issue, they contact you as soon as possible. Usually it's within minutes of sending them an email.....and they are very nice and happy to help you. I like that Biz Library updates their material on a regular basis. The type of industry we are in needs refresher courses each year and I can usually find a course that is not a repeat from last year which keeps my employees engaged.,If I were to list anything, it would be a feature that I was use to having on their old portal before they switched over to their new portal. My concern has been noted and they are working with their staff to add such a feature.,10,I haven't done any analytical data as of yet. It has added to our expenses but overall we've definitely streamlined our process.,BizLibrary ReviewWe just recently (i.e. within the last 12mos) selected BizLibrary as one piece of our Learning & Development platform for addressing job-related needs and in the continued development of both employees & managers as we continue our rapid growth as a company. The platform has been launched across the entire organization and is intended to provide JIT training/development needs as identified by either the manager or the employee.,GREAT implementation support! Too many SaaS vendors out there today rely on AI or they respond with an email and an embedded link to FAQs to address implementation and other customer support issues. Not so with BizLibrary. They assign a Technical Product Trainer to lead the implementation process, and then a Client Success Consultant to guide and assist with the roll-out for your organization, tips on how to maximize/leverage use of the platform, and target specific training content for specific groups. Again, a lot of SaaS vendors out there provide no telephonic support at all. BizLibrary, conversely, does an excellent job at being available both via email and phone; if you do have to leave a message, we have yet to see more than 24hrs pass before seeing a response. BizLibrary does, in my opinion, a great job of listening to what the company's pain points are, and then walking thru how their platform can help... but also being candid about how other needs may be better-addressed in a classroom setting. There is a vast amount of content available thru BizLibrary that "easily consumable"... meaning the courses are delivered in a video or other web-based format, with a host of post-test and other follow-up tools to ensure learning uptake by course participants by the manager or by HR.,There is some depth lacking around very-specific technical and analytics competencies. Though I understand that not every company has the same "big data" needs as we do in our industry, the basic tools or skill set is one which is easily transferable and a value add to other roles/industries. It would be great to see an LMS built into the BizLibrary platform ! A suggestion made recently by one of our VPs (which I agree with) was that it would be nice if there was a section of more-advanced content in areas around leadership development, conflict management, operating across boundaries... the kind of critical thinking skills people need to advance their careers from an individual contributor level into management.,10,Employee engagement feedback related to the need for learning & development has already seen an uptick. Many express alot of gratitude/appreciation for the JIT learning opportunity. 1st year ROI achieved with first half-dozen employees who participated in courses which were otherwise budgeted to be taken as one-day, offsite sessions from other (classroom) vendors. Broad-based management support was at first a struggle, to be candid, but as employees have completed courses and then we've followed up, managers are now providing positive feedback from their perspective.,Brighter and GO1,Slack, TINYpulse, Lattice HQBizLibrary--Boosts potential, Inspires leadership, Zestfully partnersThe City of Frederick is in the process of launching BizLibrary first with our executive team. The plan is to launch across the supervisory team and ultimately to roll out to all City employees (full-time and regular part-time). It will provide just-in-time learning opportunities to allow executives to sharpen their leadership skills in key competencies and stay abreast of best practices and compliance requirements.,Covers a broad range of topics with ease of access Ties training to the Lominger Competencies. Training varies in length and style,Need more flexibility for branding the web site as a City of Frederick learning portal. Improve administrative functions to allow ease of assigning courses, etc. Will have more input once we are actively launched with executives.,8,We have already used training from BizLibrary to address employee matters and to train groups of supervisors to reduce risk for the organization. Our management team will have access to training across a broad range of topics to help them continually improve their management skills and to reduce risk. Leadership training was identified as a priority in a risk assessment exercise, and we are about to "answer the call" and provide our leaders the tools they need to excel in their leadership roles.,

A Huge Learning Content Library is Nothing Without the Right Team

We have one department in our company using LinkedIn Learning (LIL). The benefit of BizLibrary (BL) over LIL is quality short learning content. I have a workforce that will not watch an hour and a half video course. With BL we have access to courses that come in small chunks. So team members can get what they need and go on with their workday.

Most other companies do not offer the wide range of content that Biz Library has. You have to purchase different catalogs at different prices to get more modules. The pricing per employee is more expensive. The user interfaces for the other applications are usually a little more slick, but not as good behind the scenes. At some point we plan to have a learning management system integrated with our HR system and I know that Biz Library can do that.

We found BizLibrary and really haven't felt a need to look any further. The only issue and it isn't a huge one is a lack of industry-specific courses. They are improving on this. I have never found another product that provides the variety and volume of learning tools that BizLibrary provides.

I used SkillSoft at my previous company and the content is great, however I found that more of the BizLibrary is mobile compatible. I am also able to purchase SkillSoft content through BizLibrary if there are courses I would like to leverage in addition to the BizLibrary content.

We selected BizLibrary because it addressed the needs of training for both professional and hands-on positions within our organization. The ability for our team members to access it online ensures consistent training across multiple locations and provides all of our team members with the ability to develop skills for their current roles and also develop new skills to grow in their career.

They are two different forms of evaluation tactics. BizLibrary videos are more in the area of training, learning, monitoring, engaging, etc. JotForm is an evaluation after an internal training session done by the department.

The last time I checked has been a couple years ago and I do not recall the vendors. I do; however, recall a lot of them had you pay per course per employee and they didn't have the variety of courses I needed for our industry.

Although at least one other vendor offers more content, it appeared the source(s) were not resident to that vendor... i.e. they are accessing yet someone else's material for presentation as part of their platform. With BizLibrary, we know they have properly vetted all content and stand behind it. The pricing for BizLibrary is also competitive, which is an additional plus.

We chose BizLibrary because it was the best value. Government budgets are tight, and we were able to find a resource that had flexibility for time-challenged managers and employees. BizLibrary content contained the breadth and depth of training needed for the organization. The resources are constantly growing and changing to stay relevant. The BizLibrary staff whom we partnered with have all been phenomenally helpful, creative, and professional and respectful. They have listened to our needs and responded with our needs in mind. This does not detract from the other competitors we explored. BizLibrary was the best fit for the city.
