I believe it as very good solution for complex projects with a big amount of courses and ILT activities to manage and control. It can work specially well in companies where learning management is decentralized through divisions and/or departments. It is complete in terms of functionalities and possibilities, what makes the platform a bit complex. It may not be the best choice for simple projects, because sometimes it can be hard-to-use for administrators, since it is actually a robust solution.

Very good for learning and development and training of employees. For Applicant tracking, recuirement, onboarding, and enablement, I prefer SAP SuccessFactors or Skillate. I also found that the SumTotal app is not very friendly on android and crashes sometimes and it is not optimized for mobile. Hence I end up never using it.

I personally, am not a fan of SumTotal. I have worked on several different HRIS and Payroll systems which outweigh all aspects of SumTotal (Lawson Interface Desktop, Ceridian Dayforce, ADP Enterprise, and Ultimate Software's UltiPro). As antiquated as Lawson felt, it had more functionality than SumTotal. Of course, all others I worked on were for the most part cloud based and had modern functionality to go with it.

SumTotal Learn is an LMS that is slowly developing into a finished product. I can't recommend this to anyone until it is a more finalized product. We have a large number of users in our database and the product seems to run fine even with 10,000+ users. If you're looking for an easy administrator user interface, this is also not for you. It has a very steep learning curve for admins.

When choosing an LMS, you need to decide what features are most important. Things like single-sign on, 508 compliance, ability to support mobile learning, price per user, ability to customize for various audiences, and technical support. When I chose our LMS, it was called GeoEngage because of price and all of the tech support was on the East Coast. The LMS was bought by SumTotal a few years ago. We originally wanted SumTotal, but it was too expensive for our small company. Now we get both, and we continue to get great customer support.
