Product Details

What is Lessonly?

Lessonly, now from Seismic (acquired August 2021) is training software with an ecosystem of partners, strategy and services that are aligned under the mantra of Do Better Work.

The vendor has worked with over 800 companies to help them train their teams. The vendor says they've learned that the highest performing organizations build their training on the same six pillars:

  • Assess (Gather Needs & Inputs) Listen to people, data, and the market; identify successes and challenges; and accurately assess your sales team's training needs.
  • Plan (Prioritize for Impact) Identify the most essential objectives and outcomes, and intentionally set milestones for creation and delivery.
  • Build (Create Quickly & Collaboratively) Work with teammates at the front lines of the business to develop and iterate on bite-sized training/content.
  • Learn (Meet Learners Where They Are) Push training content to teammates-- anywhere, anytime-- so they can quickly solve problems in their moment of need.
  • Practice (Rehearse, Refine, Repeat) Reinforce skills and information with realistic practice scenarios and receive feedback to fuel improvement.
  • Perform (Doing Better Work) Empower the organization to continuously improve, deliver and quantify results.

The results? Faster onboarding, higher NPS score, more closed deals and a superior customer experience.

Love Lessonly!

It started with one departments, but has expanded to five or six. It's primarily for internal training and sales enablement - staff needs training on our product, market, processes, sales methodologies and tools when hired, and they also need to be updated frequently. We use Lessonly for most of these needs - occasionally we just provide a document, but if we need people to ingest information in a specific order, if we need to quiz them, if we need to track what they've learned when, we use Lessonly.
  • Extremely easy to learn - so we can allow HR to build their own trainings, engineering to build theirs, etc. with very little training.
  • Extremely easy to edit - so we can make changes on the fly.
  • API should include more comprehensive data.
  • I'd like more sophisticated tracking of the learning program (they are working on this now).
Great for:
1. Creating quick, simple training that may need changes.
2. Embedding videos, audio, documents, images.
3. Tracking who has done what.
4. Quick assessments.

Like any LMS, the efficacy of Lessonly depends on the quality of content added - garbage in, garbage out.

  • Instrumental in creating a common fund of knowledge within a rapidly growing company.
  • Money saved due to reduced need for in person training.
Accounts teams are helpful and friendly and responsive. Lessonly seems to have very low turnover, so I can still reach people I worked with at the beginning.
MindTickle was hated by our users - company switched to Lessonly before I arrived.

Allego and Docebo both seem to have fundamentally different uses - mostly for hive-mind knowledge collection among salespeople, which may be helpful, but can't be scaled to the entire organization, and not suited to top-down training requirements. We may eventually purchase to supplement Lessonly, not replace it.
  • Creating content
  • Viewing tracking
  • Reports that aren't standard
  • That's it
It's completely simple and intuitive, anyone can pick it up. The hardest part is looking for a save button and finally figuring out you don't need one. We don't provide training for users and never have complaints. For creators, we provide best practices, but using Lessonly itself requires nothing .

Lessonly for Learning!

We had a huge onboarding issue and turned to Lessonly. We needed to streamline processes and best practices. I also needed to communicate with my growing team and know that they were digesting critical information. Lessonly helped disseminate information effectively and helped me better manage my team.
  • Distribute information
  • Easy to use lesson creation
  • Knowledge database
  • Expensive
  • Easier access to other teams content
Bigger teams are better to justify the cost. We were expanding to a remote team and it was a perfect solution as we didn't have the frequent in depth conversations that happen in the office. It is less appropriate if you have a small in house team with frequent touchpoints.

  • Decrease in training time
  • Increase of efficiency
Great team and staff that is quick to engage and answer any questions. From every stage of the process I loved work in my with this team and the resources they've given our team.
We scouted a few other bigger name LMS systems. We were new to having any kind of onboarding/training software and others were overwhelming. Lessonly is simple, easy to adopt, and a great knowledge database. Others were not as user friendly. I firmly believe you get what you pay for.
  • Lesson creation
  • Lesson distribution
  • Sending reminders
  • Pulling external content
Extremely easy to use. I was up and running with my team almost instantly. Working at a small company, we didn't have a lot of dev/engineering resources. Having a tool like Lessonly helped me instantly export information to my team without any additional delay from internal departments.
