  • Tracking employee learning goals and making sure they meet the goals
  • Capturing feedback from multiple interview discussions while hiring and showcasing it in one screen
  • Funnel analysis of candidate recruitment pipeline
  • I did not see any functionality to add multiple contractor companies to the hiring funnel and do partner level analysis
  • There are no AI capabilities for generating insights and recommendations on yearly or quarterly data

  • Clean front-end user interface.
  • Custom layouts for front page and individual users.
  • Flexibility on user roles.
  • Navigation (too many clicks to get anything done).
  • Reporting is complicated.
  • Buttons everywhere that don't do anything.
  • Features enabled that don't fully work or function the way they should.
  • Support for the product is lacking.

  • Assign complete learning plans to users so they don't have to spend time searching for courses.
  • Export learner's transcripts so managers can easily see their employee's progress.
  • Embed Social Media feeds that are relevant to their business.
  • I don't think we can build courses using Maestro. We rely strictly on third party software for course development.
  • Creating custom reports can be challenging.
  • Since we have to manage our total number of monthly active users, many of our manager's accounts go inactive. Once they're inactive, they stop receiving any notifications from their employee's course completions.
  • The user interface is dated looking. Many of the newer LMSs have more of a Windows 8 look and feel, which is what newer users are wanting.

  • Easily customizable notifications
  • TMU tool allows for quick mass uploads
  • Configurable front end
  • JasperSoft Reporting - it is difficult to use and manage.
  • Exams could be more robust. Offering alternate types of questions.
  • Too many clicks on the administrator side. Adding new activities is not intuitive, you need to click through each section to determine what needs to be entered where. Would be better if it was guided for new activities, just prompting for 'required' fields.

  • It allows for simulations to address complex scenarios in the healthcare setting.
  • We can quickly review reports to see completion rate of an activity.
  • We have empowered our upper managment to utilize the tracking functionality to have quicker compliance on education modules.
  • Staff would like to see the links of assigned training to allow users to launch into an activity
  • Offer more reports within the programs so users dont have to make their own

  • SumTotal has a very user friendly design, making it easy for non-programmers to configure their LMS interface, customize various environments for different groups, and to integrate numerous external web applications through iFraming, such as social media or news feeds. I was able to configure a custom environment for several different clients, making it feel like their own LMS, such as a custom color scheme and logos, custom widgets (which are section of any page), news feeds, training messages, and custom learning plans.
  • SumTotal can not yet support media-rich mobile learning. Our eLearning design use instructional video, text, interactions, pop-ups with course resources and other information, etc... The SumTotal mobile capability right now does not support our design; ie our pop-ups won't pop-up, even those that simply open a PDF or document, and non of the hyperlinks will work.
