Brainshark is efficient and it's used in our organization across various departments where we use it in employee onboarding and coaching. However, we use it more so in sales training and preparing our sales teams for their task ahead. The best thing with the platform is that it allows for the development and incorporation of content in the platform and this ensures that you educate your staff using customized and unique content that fits your organization's mission and vision.
  • It's simple to use and this ensures that it fits excellently in all organizations.
  • Allows us to train our staff (more so the sales team), and this ensures that they remain knowledgeable in what we do.
  • Can be used also in other departments to impart the relevant skills and ensure that they are able to execute their roles with ease.
  • Some of our less tech-savvy users had a steep learning curve in understanding how best to use the platform.
Brainshark is a learning management system and this makes it fit for every scenario where you are aiming to impart knowledge and sharpen the skills of your staff where they increase their capacity to deliver and bring a turnaround in your organization. The Sales teams are able to execute their mandate with ease and this ensures that our revenue increases day by day.
This is because the platform has a simple user interface and does not pose much of a challenge to its users.

Brainshark is used to help guide employees with education for our company. For example, if they create a new product, we will have training on Brainshark that will be required by a certain date to complete to learn more about it. We also use it for training purposes. We are assigned certain training activities and receive a grade.
  • It's organized well.
  • It's easy to navigate.
  • Sometimes it is hard to find what you are assigned.
Brainshark is great for new employees and the company to utilize to help them guide the employee throughout their onboarding process. I like how there are optional training sections that you can view as well as the mandatory training that you know you need to complete. I could see it used in many organizations.
I have never needed to contact Brainshark for support.

We had a ton of marketing and sales content, but we weren't able to compile it in one space. It's been incredibly beneficial during the onboarding process and our trainees really enjoyed using the program. They were able to work at somewhat of their own pace, but I could keep track of what had been done and when. With continued sales coaching, we were able to get our money's worth. Our entire organization uses this to keep up on our product and sales tactics and our sales team relies on it for all new hires and continued education. I'd absolutely suggest those looking for a Sales Content Manager to go with Brainshark.
  • Super easy to create content and extensive product library.
  • You can track who has completed each section and when.
  • Helps you create and manage your Sales and Marketing training content.
  • Q and A ability.
  • User navigation is very easy. UI is user-friendly.
  • Some of the technical aspects can be tricky- embedding a video, merging content, etc.
  • Editing
  • Branding
  • Customizable surveys
Brainshark is best suited within an organization that needs the functionality of an online training program. It's great for sales and marketing. Brainshark was a great investment for our company. The ability to train candidates without standing in front of them talking for a week gave us a tremendous amount of time back and it's effective! It's simple to use and extremely customizable. Great for sales knowledge. There are so many ways you can implement it though, so if you choose this product make sure that you spend the time to understand all of the awesome stuff it can do.
Brainshark support has always been incredibly helpful. Any question or issue we ran into they answered quickly. This company clearly keeps success at the top of their list and does what they can to lessen churn.

We use Brainshark in two main ways. First, to be able to provide links anywhere, such as in emails, newsletters and our website. These links are primarily of webinars we have produced and trainings we have created. Second, for formal learning, creating curricula with classes, quizzes, webinars to review, surveys to take etc.
  • I love how easy creating a Brainshark and their formal learning is to use. Upload an animated Power Point, record audio, add music, or use videos etc.
  • Their formal learning also keeps track of people in classes, allows us to invite people to a curricula, send notifications when classes are added, and update on the fly without having to resubmit all new classes.
  • I also love that people in classes can run their own transcript and see where they are in a program, and if graded how they scored.
  • I think their general reporting could be more robust and/or easier to use
  • I don't like their main emphasis is now on sales. Our emphasis is education, technology, industry changes, as well as sales.
I love what Brainshark does for me and how easy it is to train someone else to use it. Most people are familiar with PowerPoint and that makes and easy start that can be enhanced with animation, voice over and background music. You can also upload videos, SCORM compliant classes and more to make an easy to use system to present training and education. I have reviewed a number of other programs, and all seem to have the same weaknesses in reporting. Brainshark does what I need without a lot of difficult training.

Brainshark is a software that we use in our company to coach and train our sales teams, reps and the whole department to prepare them for marketing and augmenting the sales of our company effectively and in an efficient manner. Its simple to use and it has helped our company grow our sales volume and in the process increase our revenue and market niche.
  • You can prepare your content and use it for coaching the sales team and reps in the manner that you like and based on your specific company context.
  • You can record training sessions as videos and use them later as webinars and online training.
  • It has a simple user-interface and this makes it more reliable and efficient.
  • Supported only in iOS mobile devices, hence locks out Android users.
  • The language supported, for now, is English and it should be expanded further to match other international languages.
Brainshark works well in a scenario where as a company you are aiming to help your sales reps attain sales mastery. It offers organizations the ability to execute better onboarding, training, coaching, and continuous learning opportunities to their sales reps and teams (both current and future incoming employees).

We use Brainshark to promote our solutions and services and to drive customer acquisition. We use SlideShark for presentation, demonstrations and kiosks. We also integrate Brainshark presentations into customer displays that promote awareness, product and brand.
  • We use the video slide feature often for promoting our products. The video slide provides more motion and activity to attract viewers at the very beginning of the presentation.
  • SlideShark is a great mobile application that allows us to share presentation content and present during sales calls. It is easy to use and always ready.
  • We have been passing parameters to and from the Brainshark guest book for years. Using the guest book parameters, you can capture viewer information without the viewer completing fields. This works great in email applications where you can pass attributes into the guest book automatically.
  • Would like to see more user control for how videos are displayed in social media - selection of splash image, description, sizing, shareable links.
For a long time, Brainshark focused their use case on producing training content. I was an early adopter and started using Brainshark presentations in short "trailers" for webinar promotion at Xerox Corporation. I continue to this day to use Brainshark as a customer acquisition tool. Brainshark has found its "sweet spot" now that they are focused on sales effectiveness and integrating with customer relationship management platforms.

We have an in depth understanding of the technology and work with leading retailers, wholesalers and packaged goods organizations to implement and more effectively utilize Brainshark.
We typically address changing how a client creates and sends important and actionable content throughout their organization as well as to their customers.
  • Easy to use and create content - we can get a basic PPT user up and running in less than an hour.
  • Excellent tool to create a product library quickly and effectively so it can accessed by your employees through their easy to set up searchable content portal.
  • If you are a SFDC user Brainshark is an excellent tool to create and manage sales, marketing and training content... and Brainshark easily connects to your SFDC platform
  • Brainshark has addressed a number of feature enhancements over the past two really performs at a high level on a consistent basis...
  • Ocassionally we run into a large video file >500mb that we have to address directly with support but it does not happen very often...
The biggest hurdle a company faces is understanding the various ways that they can utilize Brainshark and then making sure they implement those use cases on an ongoing basis... the best scenario is when someone comes into the organization that has experience using Brainshark and they can quickly assess where and how Brainshark can add value to the organization.
I always get an immediate response and detailed instructions to help address my questions.

We use Brainshark across our organization with some locations using it more than others. We use Brainshark to create training presentations for our staff. The biggest way that I use Brainshark is to create employee benefit informational presentations for our clients.
  • Easy to use
  • Creates professional presentation
  • Flexibility in media use
  • The only problem I have ever had with Brainshark is that there isn't an undo button.
If you are looking to create, distribute and monitor presentations, Brainshark is the best.

We are about to start our 3rd year using Brainshark. What I like best about the product is that it allows me to pull in a variety of different media to quickly assemble marketing, sales, or training decks and distribute it across a variety of media and devices. You can track who watched and how many times your presentation was watched through their tracking service. I am also able to see where people are dropping out of presentations so you can make the proper adjustments and hold the customers attention. I produce a lot of videos for marketing, sales, and implementation and I love how I can update a videos/slide decks without having to change the URL. The presentations can be copied and edited and I can easily reuse and amend content for different audiences. The customer service and on-boarding is great and allows you to quickly get up to speed so you can start producing content for your internal or external users. They never stop releasing new features and now they are becoming content providers for sales and onboarding training.
  • You can Track who watched and how many times your presentation was watched through their tracking service.
  • Customer service is outstanding. They will walk you through any difficulties you encounter.
  • They are always working and expanding the product to give me ways to engage with my audience
  • They need to add closed captions to their player... using slide notes as a caption is not acceptable. Its been 3 yrs since I brought this up.
  • They favor Apple products, I use droid and it seems like the droid app doesn't get the attention of the apple app.
  • Pricing is a little steep compared to competitors
Is this for internal training or external marketing? I see a lot of people use it for internal training but not customer facing material. Brainshark does both well and that is where the value lies. If you only need one or the other this might more power than you need.
I have never walked away without a answer and a explanation. That doesn't always mean I am satisfied with the answer but every company/product has limitations.

Brainshark was implemented by the IT Department where it is currently used to design, deliver and host communications, presentations and training for project related activities.
  • Brainshark is a very user-friendly tool that can be learned in a very short period of time; which was extremely valuable as there was only one experienced Brainshark author in our company.
  • Brainshark is a great way to communicate to a global audience. Our company has expanded their global footprint and often the only cost effective way to communicate or train in different time zones and remote locations is using tools like Brainshark.
  • Brainshark provides us a hosting platform accessible across the globe where none exists today in our company.
  • I'd like to see more reference material around reporting. Brainshark has robust reporting for this type of tool, but often it requires my calling the support desk to understand certain aspects of reporting.
Brainshark is an excellent choice if you're looking for a content creation tool that is geared toward business users and doesn't require content development skills. Having said that, Brainshark can accommodate many file types, including content that is developed in tools like Captivate and Camtasia. It's also a great hosting tool for an organization that doesn't have this type of capability and can integrate with LMS systems.

We are using Brainshark for a number of different reasons. In our HR/Payroll Services area we are using it for new employee orientation, directions for registering for different tools that are available to employees, and for training in different payroll-related areas. Our Center for University Learning is using it for continuing education purposes. In the near future we will be developing even more videos to be used as "toolboxes"for managers to assist them in their management duties.
  • Tracks those who view the video and how much of the video they viewed
  • Allows the video to skip to different areas based on responses from the viewer
  • Provides Q&A ability so that viewers may be quizzed, and required to supply correct answers to continue if needed.
  • The only thing that I have struggled with occasionally is embedding video into a split-screen presentation.
We haven't found anything that we haven't been able to do with Brainshark.
Brainshark customer service has always been available when we need them and they respond very quickly.

We use Brainshark for all sorts of things - marketing, training, internal communications, etc. The entire enterprise is using the product. It gives us a cost effective way to communicate with large groups, large target segments with all the right tracking, metrics, reporting, etc. Plus, it is so user friendly.
  • Allow video to display within a presentation
  • Allow you to easily replicate content
  • User navigation is the best ever
  • They have continuous improvement, the product always gets better
  • I would like to be able to make simple edits to video, like eliminating dead space
  • I would like more variety in the free background music choices
  • I'd like to be able to take one slide out of a Brainshark and add it to another more easily. Although merge content is already pretty easy.

It is being used across the organization to communicate to our co-workers. Most recently, we have used the product to communicate our benefits changes for open enrollment. This process was previously handled by HR Reps throughout our ministry holding on-site meetings. Now we are sure the exact same message is being given to every co-worker and they are able to access the information at a time that works best for them.
  • Easy to use - upload PowerPoint and then add voice over
  • Allows you to link to outside websites
  • Professional looking finished product...can be set up to run almost like a movie for the end user.
  • Would like to have the ability to do minor PowerPoint edits from inside the program.
  • Would like to have a section header functionality...currently there are chapter titles, but it would be nice to be able to delineate one more level down.
  • Improved functionality for moving slides, maybe an edit on the slide number that would allow you to quickly move it longer distances rather than drag and drop.
If you need a lot of interaction with the material, this isn't the best solution.

For communicating information, voice over PowerPoint even with assessment questions, this is a great solution. We also use Brandwatch for short commercial like communications and for providing timely information in an unexpected format from our leaders.

Brainshark is being used throughout the company for streaming learning and other modules to our users throughout the world. While it is mainly used by training, users throughout the company are gaining more familiarity with the product. The biggest need that this addresses is the ability to quickly produce and deliver information without needing advanced production skills.
  • Simple content creation
  • Easy management and security
  • Video editing
  • Advanced polling
I think it is an applicable solution for all medium to large companies. We all have the need for training and communication delivery, and Brainshark facilitates and simplifies that. Even if you just use it as a private YouTube you will see a benefit.

Brainshark is used across my whole organization to view presentations. It allows us to safely upload and store large files that anyone can log in from anywhere and access. Some of these files are too large to share via email. The presentations are accessed through registered users only. You can view the presentations directly through Brainshark or open the file in a Microsoft PowerPoint document or PDF. It keeps all of our documents organized. There are folders that can be created, which is what helps keep it organized too.
  • Security through registered users.
  • Storage of large files.
  • Organization of information.
  • The timer per page is too fast.
It is helpful for Product launches/updates and presentations about our company.

We use Brainshark on a regular basis to provide on-demand training content and bite-size learning to different departments at our company. It is a great tool for providing just-in-time training and since it can be viewed from any device, there is no restriction on when and where someone views the recordings. The process to create a Brainshark is very simple - upload your content and then record your voice. You can choose to include different assets like videos, web pages, surveys, quizzes etc. The reporting tool provides lots of details on content views and durations. For us it works really well and we can push it out through our LMS. Their support is great and we usually get a response back in less than 24 hours. A couple of enhancements I would like to see would be adding some sort of a timer to the quiz feature and more enhanced editing options.
  • Recording slide by slide and animation by animation gives you the ability to really tailor your talk track and message
  • Simple to use interface and features - easily create surveys and quizzes
  • The detailed reports really help you see how long someone stayed on a slide or did not for that matter. For compliance trainings you can setup completion criteria
  • Timer on quizzes would be a great enhancement
  • A simpler interface to editing the content. Too many clicks right now to edit content which can be minimized with a more robust editing UI
It is best suited to deliver on-demand content anywhere anytime. It is not restricted to any department or industry. I think everyone can take advantage of this tool. I have seen Marketing create content, Sales create short introduction Brainsharks, Finance create presentations, and HR use it for talking about benefits.

Our Client Services team uses Brainshark presentations to author and host videos that we use for client-facing resources distributed in our Product Help destination, email communications, and other sites. We create the following types of videos for client consumption: How To, Getting Started Guided Tour Videos, and Feature Release Videos. What is so valuable about Brainshark and essential to our success in creating and distributing information to our clients is:

  • Ease of Use - Creating and updating a video is a cinch; the simple tool set and creation from PPT fits our needs exactly.
  • Hosting - By leveraging Brainshark to not only author but host the video it's a one-step process from authoring to distribution.
  • Reporting - We can see how often our videos are watched, how much of the video is watched, and more making it easy to determine the efficacy and popularity of the content.

Brainshark rocks!!

  • Ease of Use
  • Hosting
  • Reporting
  • Custom Reporting
  • Syncing animations
  • Interactivity
Knowing your audience, purpose of the videos, and who will be authoring the videos are key considerations when analyzing a video vendor.

We use Brainshark to support Pre-Class, In-Class, and Post-Class training for our sales force. It is also used for corporate training, legal training, and Compliance courses. It allows us to provide training on our intranet and outside of the organization. Most importantly, it is almost completely device agnostic, so I know our people will be able to view our training, videos and courses pretty much anytime and anywhere.
  • When they release upgrades and modules they work (not buggy like many other vendors).
  • World-class customer service with customer service (local in the US).
  • Continuous upgrades and enhancements (usually every 6 weeks).
  • The reports are robust but not completely customizable.
  • Admin functionality is good but not great.
How much complexity are your people able to use (and comprehend)? If they are all MIT grads, then Brainshark might be too simple and a more robust LMS/content delivery system may be applicable. If your people want click and play, then Brainshark is a good fit.

We use Brainshark across our organization for various training and communication needs. Brainshark is used for marketing, sales, compliance, training, internal communications, and much more.
  • Brainshark is user friendly and easy to use.
  • The premise of Brainshark utilizes tools that are readily accessible: PowerPoint and a telephone.
  • The viewing experience for those the receive a Brainshark presentation is seamless. Brainshark functions on nearly all mobile devices without requiring additional "apps".
  • Brainshark has so many great features that it is difficult for me to highlight any issues. We use the tool to its fullest and are extremely satisfied with its performance.
Brainshark is so versatile that it could be used by small companies and large organizations. It can fit nearly any facet.

We are using Brainshark for internal information sharing and alignment, and to cut down on time spent in meetings. The idea is to share information and regularly cadenced updates in a Brainshark, so then meetings are shorter and focused solely on decision making. We are now using it Enterprise wide.
  • On-demand presentation tool
  • Great support
  • Easy to use
  • Not great features for collaborating on presentations
  • Poor viewing in many countries in Asia
  • Cumbersome access structure for folders
Brainshark is great for training, and for quick information alignment. It is not great for situations where you need a lot of dialogue and face to face interactions.

We use Brainshark Rapid Learning as a way to train our employees and track their scores and completion progress. We also use it to track recertification points. It's used across our entire organization, and has saved us significant time. In utilizing this product, we are able to train 1,400 employees without having them travel to our corporate office.
  • The reporting options in Brainshark are incredibly important to us. In our industry, we have to follow state regulations for training, and part of those regulations dictate how we track training completion and scores. Brainshark tracks all of that for us, ensuring accuracy and ease.
  • The creation of courses and presentations in Brainshark is very intuitive. Once their customer representatives have walked you through the process, you've got it. We were able to jump right in and begin creating our own training courses.
  • Brainshark tech support and customer service are incredibly prompt and helpful. The moment you send in a question or concern, they begin addressing it right away. We've yet to have an issue they couldn't handle.
  • So far, any time we've had suggestions for improvement, Brainshark has addressed them and made them happen, so I currently don't have any suggestions for something they could do differently.
Brainshark is well suited to both advertising and training. Currently, we use it exclusively for training. We find it very useful to enable IP restrictions. This allows us to put proprietary information on Brainshark and guarantee that only our employees will be able to view it. Security is excellent and tracking and reporting are spot on.

We originally began using it in just 1 department to train a few clients around the globe. However, in the last year or so, we have implemented it across multiple departments, and have now trained thousands internationally. It allows us to scale our educational offerings, and train those who we originally could not quite reach.
  • Incredible customer support. From our original sales person, to our account manager and technical consultant, everyone has our best interest as their first priority.
  • The product itself just works!
  • Their product management team is excellent. We have made suggestions as to what it may lack, and they have used those suggesitons to improve their product offerings.
  • User management is simple, but it would be nice if it was a bit more robust.
  • There is no bulk deletion mechanism, although I was told product teams are working on developing this.
  • Branding. I know there are ways we can remove their Brainshark logos and such, but it is at a cost, which sometimes our clients don't like.
The questions would be surrounding how robust of a system you need. For what we do, this is a great platform. It works as a learning management system for us, but our needs are not quite as in-depth as others may be. If you need ability to track multiple activities form users outside of the system, this is not good for it. However, for what we do, this is the best!

We have been using Brainshark to bridge the gap between formal and informal communications. As we try to gauge the effectiveness of our communications, Brainshark's metrics in conjunction with our SSO implementation have given us the ability to track retention and readability. This gives us a better understanding as to the way in which our employees receive messages and if they are in fact paying attention. We have streamlined many authors throughout the organization and that number grows daily.
  • Analytics that display views, length of view times, etc.
  • Integrate with many other platforms
  • Customer service is top notch
  • Incorporate touch capabilities for presentations on mobile devices other than answering questions
Identify business problems surrounding communications and see if they need to be mainstreamed to establish message consistency within large organizations.

We initially deployed Brainshark in one division of our organization but it has been met with such positive feedback and results that the rest of the organization may be deploying it as well. It provides an agile and mobile multi-media delivery platform for communications and training.
  • It is easy to create and deliver dynamic, engaging content.
  • The content can be viewed on multiple devices and platforms so it is easily accessible to all users.
  • The administration of the Brainshark is easy and painless and their support team is awesome!
  • I would love to see more detailed information regarding last time people logged in addition to the current usage statistics.
  • More flexibility to produce custom reports would be a nice value add.
  • More customizable, robust and attractive quiz/survey/knowledge check slides would be wonderful.
We continue to find new and different ways to use the platform and Brainshark does a great job of providing information on additional ways to create content and use Brainshark in organizations. I think any company could benefit from its use. Students could even use it for presentations and reports.

We use Brainshark for internal sales force training. It's mostly used by our Inside and Outside Sales Divisions. Brainshark allows our new and existing representatives to quickly get up to speed on their product knowledge. We are able to deliver a consistent message to all employees.
  • We like the ability to add audio to our courses
  • We like the ability to build the tests into the presentations and to track scores
  • We like the ability to pull reports on course completed, vs. not completed and to see who is using the system vs. who is not.
  • Better navigation to view and select courses by title, author
  • Easier course enrollments
  • Being able to easily navigate between the presentation side and learning lockers and know what side you are on
