Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Cornerstone LMS reviews

Prior to Cornerstone, we didn't have a single place where people could interact and see all of their training. We have leveraged certifications so that expiration dates are easy to find as well as utilizing playlists to help people get topical resources easily.

- Tina P. LMS Administrator

continuous innovations and adaptations to the needs of companies and employees. As a training platform it is very solid and complete.

- Ruben F. HR Tech and People Analytics

Absolutely awful, once you sign that contract no one responds to you in a timeline manner. You get a lot of "that is how the system is built, can't help you" answers. They have a great sales team and awful everything else.

Absorb LMS reviews

In an organization where the employee training process is very significant, it is necessary to have a robust tool that facilitates the planning and execution of staff professional improvement courses. This platform offers a very versatile set of tools.

- Leonard A. Business Analyst

My overall experience has been great. The LMS has allowed me to build an entire corporate training program while simultaneously building the LMS to support it. The time-based credential reporting and compliance tracking has allowed to avoid those possible awkward moments with clients' specific training requirements. With this tracking and reporting, we're also able to respond to a client's immediate need by knowing who is qualified and current on a given access or occupational training requirement.

- Mark G. Training Program Manager

I disliked the SSO/vanity URL process and would've liked more clarification on what we would need to accomplish our end intention. Additionally, a pro and con, the platform is so very customizable that the onboarding process was tedious and intimidating because we could literally do anything. There were so many small decisions to be made that it took longer than anticipated.

Pros & cons

Cornerstone LMS

What made me amazed about this software is ita ability to assign trainings to a maximum number of users
Quarterly upgrades make this software more efficient and relevant to users
Overall I am very happy with the tool chosen and would recommend it to others
There is a great underlying structure to Cornerstone Learning
The functionality is there and they are some very powerful features to help with automation and managing learning for your organization
My overall experience with Cornerstone OnDemand has been excellent."

End users complain that it is too big and too hard for them to navigate
Absolutely awful, once you sign that contract no one responds to you in a timeline manner
You get a lot of "that is how the system is built, can't help you" answers
Mix of old/new functionality can be confusing: as updates are rolled out piece by piece it can feel a bit disjointed
Some pieces within the modules do not have the same behavior across the board which can make it very frustrating at times."

Absorb LMS

It is definitely easier to see how many users we have in the system, who has taken what courses, our popular courses, and course evaluation scores which for us are all important KPI's
As novices moving into the E-Learning space, the Absorb Team showed a great deal of patience answering some questions more than once, even the most mundane
The ability to customize the content per department/group and so on makes it that much better
It inspires business productivity
It empowers organizations all over the world to deliver training efficiently."

When assigning courses you can only assign to a whole or sub-department, you can exclude
And due to the acquisition, we unfortunately had no choice
Difficult to manage blended learning
Some factors in course management could use improvements
Limited assessment options when it comes to answer types
Reporting structure takes a bit to get used to."
