We use Grovo for creating and pushing out a variety of training to webinars to all of the employees in the company. We use it company-wide and we love the fact you can create different training for different departments. We also enjoy the fact that anyone can create a training. It has helped us with training within the company. We have always been a training-heavy company but this has allowed us the ability to create more trainings for a variety of issues that occur and we are also using this with our clients as well and creating trainings for them.
  • Ease to create trainings.
  • Ability to insert GIFs and photos to help with visual aids.
  • Ability to allow others to create trainings.
  • Ability to track trainings (who has done it and who hasn't).
  • Ease of tracking all training done.
  • Continued ease of creating training.
  • Opportunities for others to add feedback to training.
  • Continued ease of tracking, this is super important to us.
Throughout our three years with Grovo we have used it to some very high abilities. We first purchased it to assist with training and over time we realized we could use for client trainings, tracking of information and ability to have others create trainings as well. It has been a great resource to allow us to make our training more robust and are always coming up with new trainings to add. This has helped with new hire trainings (so the managers don't have to do them live), client specific needs and all company training that is required. The ease to create these is wonderful and of course tracking that the training are getting completed is very important.
When we have had issues with Grovo not working or a problem with report we have always gotten an answer quickly. We have a rep that we speak to often to make sure we are satisfied with the system and is just a quick email away. It nice to know we have support that will get back to you in a quick manner as we rely on this software.

We use Grovo for creating training materials for our teams that are standardized and measurable. It allows us to provide ongoing training as well as onboard new hires, in a way that makes sure everyone is seeing the learning the same content. This is especially helpful since we have offices around the world and lots of remote employees.
  • Segmented lesson plans.
  • Specific team based trainings.
  • More aid in the creating of training modules.
  • It is hard to get employees to follow through on completion.
It is well suited for teams that have dedicated people to develop standardized training modules for their teams.
I haven't needed to access the support for this product.

We used Grovo at my company so that entire teams and departments could learn various coding languages and softwares at once. It's a super helpful software that provides very easy to follow instruction videos (called lesson tracks) that explain the language or software, and follow it up with a series of short quizzes to make sure you understand the material. It does a great job of tracking your progress and gives you incentive to keep on going.
  • Lesson Tracks
  • Quizzes following the lessons, so the material is retained
  • Reports Progress
  • Could use a broader range of material
  • A more palatable interface (although it's still pretty)
Grovo is well suited for learning basically anything. Since you can upload any material/ training videos you want, Grovo can essentially be used to learn...anything. Although, it's super nice that there are some built in micro-lessons where you can learn various material that's already onboard. At my company, our engineering department used Grovo to guide us through an SQL database querying bootcamp in which they provided the lessons and material. Grovo was an excellent interface for doing this, and I learned a lot in the span of that short bootcamp.

We use Grovo to bring new team members up to speed on the workings of the company. We have replaced our entire in house training system with Grovo with positive results. Previously we had a system of reading and summarizing to impart new concepts to employees, this system took a lot of man hours to setup and maintain. Mid last year we made a transition to Grovo to see if we could cut down on the upkeep for our inhouse training system. After a few weeks of use we decided to switch the entire company training system over to Grovo. We have had stellar results thus far, information retention among employees has greatly increased. We have also received numerous comments on ease of use.
  • Providing information in a format that is easy to remember.
  • Facilitating user transitions with efficient retraining.
  • The micro lessons provide great flexibility for offsite and partial employees.
  • Customer support and sales training was a little lacking for our organization.
  • Specialized training in woefully underdeveloped.
Grovo is fantastic for bringing a team of people up to speed and for teaching a few things to a large audience. We found Grovo to be lacking when specific training is required or when the training required a certain level of skill. Grovo is fantastic for broad training, less so for specific depth training.

Grovo is used by our whole company as a resource for employees to use at their convenience. For example, managers may use it in order to learn the best techniques to deal with certain scenarios. Each department may benefit differently by learning skills that are relevant to them, such as customer service skills or even compliance. Each employee has access at all times, and there are also situations where a manager may ask their direct reports to spend some time there.
  • Ease of Use. The site is awesome for searching for a specific topic.
  • Convenience. Lessons are generally very quick and easy to fit into even the busiest schedules.
  • Interface. The website is gorgeous and inviting.
  • Some videos/lessons leave a lot to be desired and could use more detail.
  • There's always more room for some more advanced skills.
The ideal scenario for Grovo is for more of a supplement to real world training. Employees may know the basics of a software of scenario or may have known more in the past, but simply need to use Grovo as a refresher course or quick reminder.

I wouldn't really recommend using Grovo for the more complicated skills or situations, as this doesn't seem to be what it was designed for.

Used across the whole organization for micro learning scenarios.
  • Grovo doesn't seem contrived
  • Grovo has lots of pre-made content for users
  • Grovo doesn't seem rote and mechanical like other learning services
  • It can be difficult for any e-learning service not to seem mechanical in nature when it comes to the average employee performing learning tasks
  • Many of the "problems" that grovo might seem to display would actually be a function of the organization implementing them
Grovo is especially suited for organizations that can utilize the included content and don't need to build all of their own content completely

Grovo was used as the LMS platform for the organization with the goal of uploading our own content for use in conjunction with the microlearning courses that Grovo produces.
  • The microlearning videos are done very well and the concept is excellent and easy to use
  • Customer service was excellent. They walked us through their process and were always available to address concerns
  • The LMS is set up well for delivery of their content
  • The user content side of the LMS was clunky and difficult to manage.
Grovo is well suited to any company that wants to train their staff on soft skills or hard skills. The service was excellent, the website ran well, the Grovo content was great and well produced. They did not fit well when it came to hosting our company's proprietary content.
