Bridge by Instructure is a talent management platform. Bridge provides core learning and performance management software, including reporting capabilities. The company emphasizes customer service. for New LMS UsersWe are using Bridge across the organization for compliance training, such as harassment prevention, and departmental training for topics that you can't purchase, like how to set up a bait tank. We like it because we are a 24/7/365 organization and it lets people do their training when it is convenient for them and their department. We have had many challenges in the past getting people together for live training programs. It is also very easy to use.,It is quick and easy to develop programs. Easy for learners to utilize. Easy for supervisors to manage. We really like people being able to quickly register for live training. Easily assign training to individuals and departments.,It would be helpful to have easier reporting features such as combining all aspects in one report - completed, still due and overdue - instead of separate reports.. Being able to assign permissions to individuals who may not be supervisors but responsible for training in their department.,10,More effective in getting training completed than bringing people in from all over town for live sessions.,Grovo and Cornerstone OnDemand,For us it isn't critical yet, but I see it as a definite value at a later date.,Our support team was there to answer our every question, did an on-site, and continue to provide excellent customer service when we have questions.,We are still in the learning stage but see lots of potential for the future.,1500,1,Simplicity 24/7 availability Ability to create our own courses. The courses we need most are ones like how to clean horse stall, how to set up a bait tank, how to do a dip net survey. They just aren't out there to purchase.,Simply train more authors who can create more courses and programs.,10,ADP Workforce Now,No,Price Product Features Product Usability,Can't think of a thing.,Implemented in-house,Yes,Change management was a small part of the implementation and was well-handled,Resistance to learning something new. Supervisors taking time to learn how to use an LMS.,9,No,10,No,It is consistently exceptional. Can't point out one example.,Adding learners. Setting up live training schedules. Adding courses and programs.,Would like to see more flexibility on reporting. Ability to assign roles to non-manager positions.,10I still have faith in you guys- in my effort to become a BRIDGE NINJABridge is used to educate our customers. We sell a software product that we cannot hire enough support reps to answer the phone to support. We are using Bridge as a solution to our problem to lower support call volume.,Easy to navigate and use Looks pretty- lots of white space Focuses on the fundamentals- hosting and tracking learning content,Credly integration sucks- badges/leaderboards need to be in house. Seems like your two companies are at odds with each other Credly badges are only available on the main account not for subaccounts Not able to see groups of programs together to track learning progress. That is wonky- I get it- a group of courses is a program. You can't group programs together and call it something (like a curriculum)? So this grouping functionality can only happen on one level? Pretty lame,8,We need more data to determine,Cornerstone OnDemand, Litmos, Docebo LMS, Adobe Captivate and Inquisiq LMS,We haven't used the LMS in this regard. I would love to see how Bridge can do this.,They were ok. Not awesome. They could use some polish to be honest. I had to re explain our use case frequently to multiple people. I feel like getting started with Bridge was not a great experience. It was not a smooth experience and needs some work to make it white glove service.,It is performing as expected - we haven't had any pleasant surprises,40000,2,Training our customers how to use our products better so we can lower the support call volume Internal training for new hires Nothing else ...,Internal training that isn't new hire training- recursive training for underperforming empoyees Onboarding a new client involves some work on the clients end. This training could be used to host courses for them that show them how to do their part in the onboarding process. There are certain things only they can do to convert their existing data over to our systems. These courses would help show them how to do that thats it ...,7,Freshdesk

It has been very useful to our organization in getting compliance training complete. We have a 24/7/365 organization with some folks only working 2 days a week during the summer only, many work full-time jobs elsewhere and can't make weekday programs and facilities don't have to alter schedules to get mass numbers of people through training like you have to do with live training..

Pretty likely because Bridge is a good product that will probably meet our needs. However now that I am more familiar with what the LMS can/can't do I will probably be a better shopper to see if there is another LMS that can fill the gaps that this one has
