My company looking for a solution to organize corporate training for all new and existing customers. Ыince I have dealt with this system before, but with the community version, I advised to look at it first. We asked for a demo, then a trial, but in the process of using it, we realized that it would be difficult to modify the system for our needs.
  • courses management
  • quizes management
  • variety of addons
  • need better gamification
  • need direct integrations with CRM
  • need modern web interface
This is an excellent system if you want to quickly launch corporate courses for your employees or for clients, but at the same time you are not ready to get involved in a complex revision or alteration, that is, you will only use the functionality that is already there. But we are faced with the fact that it will be either very expensive or impossible to modify the system to our requirements.

This system is a great software which every company should use. The company has moved from another software a while ago to eFront Learning due to a better, more enhanced software package with fuller, more established features. The most beneficial aspects of the software are allocating various numbers of courses, always being able to have dedicated support, and the capability to build and provide individual portals for every client in use. There are a lot of learning capabilities which are always available through the use of this software. These learning features were outstanding and were very much appreciated by everyone on our team. This software has become a widely used product across the organization due to how easy it is to learn, usability features, etc. This software was easily scalable at the company due to its price, functionality, and awesome features for everyone to use at all times.
  • High flexibility in creating various modules
  • Different options to learn for users
  • Technical services and customer support available at all times
  • Merging this software may be difficult and cumbersome at times
  • Reporting features can be worked on for better and easier usability
  • Not very easy to organize files/folders in the system
It is great to always be able to learn new concepts through great software portals, such as eFront Learning. The best aspect of the software is that it is very easily customizable in every way. If the company deals with various portfolios, this system offers great features to utilize for everyone in the organization.

  • Better information available
  • Great learning portal
  • Customer service available at all times
Our company reviewed eFront Learning and SAP Litmos. It was really between these two vendors. They were rated pretty well and were very comparable. eFront Learning was priced better than SAP Litmos. It was also more structured for portfolios, which was better aligned with the company's structure and future outlook.

eFront is being used across the organization. We went from nothing to fully launched in about 3 months. It reduces training needs, and at the same time provides a framework for Human Resources to evaluate the competencies of our employees. We are using it to enforce company policies with mandatory training in several areas, and also to teach new software to a large user base who is being asked to adopt the software.
  • eFront has a great deal of flexibility, allowing us to customize certain requirements, the look and feel of the web interface, the overall user experience.
  • It keeps very good track of user progress throughout lessons, and allows us to quickly identify users who may require more personalized training.
  • The reports module has a great selection of standard reports, and allows us to build certain custom reports as well.
  • SCORM compliant, with the Tin Can API means that we will be able to share data with parts of the organization that are not using eFront as their primary LMS.
  • Support desk is geared towards back-end programmers. As an Administrator, I am reliant on the User Interface to accomplish everything I need to do. When I get stuck, they occasionally come back at me and ask me to send a copy of a file buried somewhere in the server, only accessible to someone with SCP access to our server. I end up having to refer the response to a PHP programmer - and so far, the solve rate for those issues is 0%
  • The Courses are not clickable, and they are much larger in the display than the clickable lessons. I get a lot of support requests where people believe they cannot access the course because they clicked on the 24 pt. course name and nothing happened. I write back and tell them to click on the 12 pt. Lesson, and they get in. It's just an ergonomic nuisance really. Not mission-critical.
  • Most of the test question types do not work in a lot of browsers, so we are limited to T/F and Multiple Choice. There may be a way to remedy this, but I haven't figured it out.
You must have an IT staff with knowledge of PHP in order to install and maintain the system. This is not a plug and play solution by any means. If you have that staff, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It's a very robust system. Once we solved initial bugs caused by our own errors during installation, the support desk requests have dropped to almost zero, with nearly 2,000 users online every day. That's a good, solid program.

  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Adoption of misunderstood and maligned software that is essential to our company
  • Lots of pats on the back from upper management
  • Impressively easy to sign up new users through a self-registration process - went from 0 to 2,000 in three weeks.
  • None
I inherited eFront from an employee who chose the product and left before the project got started. I can't fairly compare it to anything else.

Everyone across the entire organization has to be certified in Quality and Security. Everyone uses EFront to earn a certificate, which must be renewed yearly. The renewal reminder process is automated and it's easy to see who is in compliance and who is not. EFront issues printable certificates, which can boost morale in employees at all levels.
There are only two people besides myself who have the skill set to support EFront Learning. I actually lack some of the skills and must rely on IT personnel to help with the most technical parts of EFront. It's not cloudware - it must be configured locally on a local server.
  • Certification
  • Lifelong Learning
  • Knowledge Transfer
  • Easy renewal reminders
  • SCORM compliant
  • We were able to use one system to train and certify worldwide staff
  • We were able to include health, safety, sensitivity and government-mandated training in the curriculum
  • We used the security features within EFront to create courses that contained the "secret sauce" for some of our products. This training could not be hacked - it was very secure. Only the employees who needed to learn these subjects were able to access the training. (And the Admin - me).
  • Quality of life training materials (breathing, yoga, etc.)
  • OSHA Certification
  • Corporate announcements with an automated viewing certificate at the end.
Once you make the plunge and choose a platform, there is really no point in backing out. We could theoretically export all of our courses out of eFront and import them into a new system, but we like some of the strong points about eFront, particularly around security and ease of modification (for PHP programmers, anyway). I see no reason to switch - all of the Professors and Admins are comfortable with the system, and it is taking us light years ahead of the curve in terms of training.
No
  • Product Features
Certification ensured a consistency and helped to improve corporate culture as a whole.
Knowing what I do about cloud-based learning systems, I might consider something that doesn't require a local installation on the services. A more "plug and play" solution would be ideal. It would also help if the software did a better job importing courses created in CAMTASIA. I found CAMTASIA extremely easy to use, and it had features that work with many LMS but they didn't work very well with EFront. Ideally, the LMS should not need the level of IT support that EFront requires...it should be user-friendly for the Admin.
  • Implemented in-house
Yes
The first installation was the free trial, which was used to evaluate the software and its functionality. The next phase was to evaluate security. After that, we purchased the full version, and a very long phase of course creation and population took place. Until I was given the role of Admin, the process was being done by people who were too busy to get it right. So in the second part of the creation phase, I cleaned up errors and finished implementing the most mission-critical courses. Last phase was launch - we sent out an email to the entire organization asking them to certify in Security and Quality. Eventually all but a few stubborn employees were certfied.
Change management was a small part of the implementation and was well-handled
I had to read a book called "Our Iceberg is Melting" in order to understand why so many people were refusing to comply with the process. That book opened my eyes to the politics and personality issues that make change difficult. Once I identified the right "penguins" I was able to get the whole company certified.
  • Learning curve for IT and Admin roles was steep
  • Time management - we had to devote a full-time person to managing the system
  • Some SCORM-compliant courses didn't import as expected
  • The LMS wasn't accessible to a lot of people until we fixed an internal problem
It's important to have a robust course catalog before launching. Courses should be QC'ed to be sure there are no errors or other problems. Don't let engineers write quiz questions! Remember that well-formed quiz questions are not designed to trick or fool the user - they are used to reinforce learning through repetition of important concepts. The "grade" isn't as important as the assurance the information has stuck.
  • Online training
I'm not the most technical person, so some of the training didn't make sense to me. It wasn't a complete training - it was more topical. The people working at EFront were happy to answer my questions later when I resorted to learning it by doing. This was very valuable to me.
I'm afraid I can't answer this question accurately, because I didn't do much configuration and I don't have other systems to which I can compare it. I know that when I changed roles and gave much of the administration to someone who wanted to make big changes, they weren't able to learn it enough to do it. This was because knowledge of PHP is required.
Make sure there are people on staff who know how to install the LMS on a server. Also be sure to use style that matches the brand of your company. Black makes a very nice background. Include company logo. Design your certificates with the proper logo and make them look impressive so the learner feels a sense of accomplishment and pride.
Some - we have done small customizations to the interface
We changed colors and implemented a branded look. I didn't do it - the IT engineers I worked with did most of it. For the most part, the interface itself seemed well-designed and didn't require additional customization beyond the graphical enhancements I mentioned.
Besides the graphics/sleeve changes I mentioned, no.
Two disadvantages: 1. Many staffers who respond don't know how to solve the problem using the User Interface - they want to work from the back end, to which I have no access.
2. The support staff are in Europe and I am in California, so there is an overnight delay in getting a response.
Yes
We need knowledgeable programmers to share with our Applications staff so we can maximize our use of the online learning system we have built. In a few years, we may SMEs who are able to take over this role, and we will discontinue premium support. For now, it is a learning curve for all of us.
No
Yes, we were having issues with our certificates not reflecting the correct grade, and Eleftheria, one of the support staff, provided a really great workaround to the problem so that the most perfectionist users of our system could have their 100% reflected on the certificate. The system shows 100%, but we would have to manually input the grade if they had passed the course with a lower score.
For most situations, it is extremely easy to learn and use. There are ergonomic issues that seem a bit tedious, but overall, we are seeing a very high success rate with new registrants. They are learning the material and earning their certificates at a rapid pace. This is a good program once it is properly installed by a knowledgeable systems architect.
  • Reporting and Score Cards
  • Importing SCORM content
  • Copying Course Evaluations to maintain consistency across the board
  • Self-instruction videos come with the trial version - it is easy to teach yourself and become an expert end user
  • Anything that requires programmer knowledge. I'm not an IT Guy.

Our organization uses eFront in multiple departments, primarily Investment Operations and Investment Accounting. It is used to account for various investments made by the organization. It is a support tool for reconciling. We are able to create reports via dashboards to use for reconciliation purposes. It also serves as a research tool.
  • The customer service is pretty good
  • Ability to create reports that pull key information from massive amounts of data
  • Ability to log tickets for issues
  • It is difficult to learn how to create reports that show exactly what you want. The dashboard part of the software is not very user friendly. Extensive training is necessary to learn how to use it proficiently.
  • It is very expensive, including licenses, training, report creation, etc.
  • I've experienced downtime with the site a few times.
Make sure you are aware of all the costs associated with this software. If you want something that's user-friendly and easy to learn, this probably isn't the best software to go with. They do provide good customer service with quick responses to logged issues. They have the enthusiasm to help with creating any reports your organization might need, but at a high price.
  • Faster, more accurate reconciliation
  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Ease of reporting

Investment operations and investment accounting
I'm not sure what else is out there that has the ability to do what our organization needs. We've come across things we didn't like about it, but due to costs of switching and possibly lack of other options, we'd probably renew with eFront. Also, we've invested a lot of time in the software and it seems to be satisfactory at this point.

eFront is used across all locations of our business to address any issues we might have related to our key internal controls. The tools helps us address any issues with our KICs and implement action plans to correct these issues.
  • The tool gives you a simple rating system from 1-4 and if you do not qualify as a 3 or 4 it insists that you develop an action plan to address the issue you might have with the particular KIC.
  • The tool could use a simpler layout and become slightly more user friendly. Possibly have better guidelines as to where to find particular items or illustrate the flow of what needs to be completed first and so forth. Overall just a simpler layout would go a long way, seems a little clustered at the moment.
It is very efficient when it comes to tackling the proper procedures to have in place for all key internal controls(KIC).
  • It has led to finding and correcting any issues we have seen with our KICs and developing a better environment within the organization that no longer has risks with any KICs.
  • None
Unfortunately I have not had the chance to try other products, however I would think eFront would stack up fairly well against competitors and it provides all the necessary tools to stay compliant and excel at having efficient KICs.
Familiarity and efficiency of using the tool factor in to my rating. It has helped us over the three years of being used to identify multiple risks and it has led to us eliminate those risks in an efficient manner.
