Overall Satisfaction with Lessonly
We've rolled out Lessonly for the sales teams and will soon be rolling it out to the customer success and solutions engineers teams. Eventually, we will roll it out to the whole company. It currently helps us address sales enablement needs, and it will expand to help us address all of our training and development needs.
- Ease of use – You can create a lesson in 30 minutes or less.
- Track the progression of your learners – See how they're doing and where there are areas for improvement.
- Customize a learning library by topics – You choose what's important to the teams you're training and who sees what.
- Their customer service team is unlike anything else I've experience – You're part of the family from day 1.
- The way content is organized for admins could be improved – It's easy to search for content, but I'd personally like to have more flexibility around creating folders for different topics on the back-end.
- Better preparation of employees in in-person workshops after doing pre-work in Lessonly
- Reduced time to ramp for new hires by 1 month
Lessonly treats you like you're part of the family from day 1. Their attention to detail, from the marketing team to their CS team, is unparalleled. They have built product features and functionality based on use cases I've had, and are always willing to listen to what can be added or improved. The CS team is wonderful at challenging me, which I love. Whenever I ask for something, they always ask me why I need it. They then either show me how to do it, show me a workaround if what I need isn't available, and/or connect me with their product team to talk through what could be possible. Their Services team is amazing at transferring your existing training content into the Lessonly platform and converting it into coherent lessons and paths. Everyone I've worked with at Lessonly has been an absolute pleasure.
Bridge is a great platform and it looks really nice; however, when we did user testing with managers and sales reps, they did not feel like the platform was intuitive enough for their needs. Navigating where to go was a bit of a challenge, whereas with Lessonly, they were able to navigate the platform with no training. Also, Bridge onboards you and then leaves you to figure things out on your own. If you're someone who wants to work with a vendor as a partner, Bridge is not it.
Lessonly adapts very well to different scenarios. I used it at my previous company, where we rolled it out to 2,000 people in 27 countries. At my current company, we're around 65 employees in 3 countries. I've had no problems in either roll-out. It's great for anything from sales training to professional development and career progression/growth.
