Overall Satisfaction with Brainshark

We use Brainshark to support Pre-Class, In-Class, and Post-Class training for our sales force. It is also used for corporate training, legal training, and Compliance courses. It allows us to provide training on our intranet and outside of the organization. Most importantly, it is almost completely device agnostic, so I know our people will be able to view our training, videos and courses pretty much anytime and anywhere.
  • When they release upgrades and modules they work (not buggy like many other vendors).
  • World-class customer service with customer service (local in the US).
  • Continuous upgrades and enhancements (usually every 6 weeks).
  • The reports are robust but not completely customizable.
  • Admin functionality is good but not great.
  • High adoption rates of new systems
  • Quick learning for new products
That is a HUGE list of products. I have implemented 2 full LMS systems and a number of smaller systems and I have to say Brainshark is by far the best for easy content delivery.
It is a fantastic value. Our people use Brainshark constantly and we find more and more uses for it each year.
How much complexity are your people able to use (and comprehend)? If they are all MIT grads, then Brainshark might be too simple and a more robust LMS/content delivery system may be applicable. If your people want click and play, then Brainshark is a good fit.
