Brainier Review

2019-09-23

We didn't have an LMS prior to using Brainier, so it was a very helpful solution for us in order to manage our training programs and the training records for our Associates. Our account reps are very helpful and responsive when we need anything.

Pros

The ability to import and mass mark completions is helpful.

Cons

The reporting could be better.

We really like that this integrates with UltiPro.

Pros

The customer support is fantastic. We have a designated representative who is responsive and is always there to help us troubleshoot. There are also several format options for delivering training.

The software isn't designed in a way that makes knowing where to click obvious.

We have been attempting to use Brainier LMS for record keeping and although it does everything we need it to, it has been a struggle to implement due to management resistance.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use.

Cons

I honestly can't think of anything right now.

Big fan of the Brainier LMS!

2017-12-22

At this moment, I don't have many cons...sometimes the cons are that I want something that isn't out there...as long as they are looking into what I want, that's all I can hope for. I have made choices that turned out to be not so great after a while...using the Brainier LMS is NOT one of those. I am still happy with it, still excited about it, and look forward to it's growth that brings our Company to a better place.

Pros

Yes, other LMS platforms may offer the same thing but these seem so easy...ties into the ease of use. Third, the implementation team, the help desk, and the sales team...these people are real people and do their absolute best to help in any way that you ask.

Cons

Sometimes I want more data in the static reports, like the "Tag" (I'll add that to the forum).

Helping us grow

2018-12-05

Our firm is growing, and Brainier's team has been consulting us throughout the year on ways to adapt our current approach to accommodate our new needs. We are so picky, and they provide thoughtful approaches with each request.

Pros

The newest release has an attractive dashboard with several visual and interactive opportunities.

Cons

Each small feature combined would make a big impact.

All is wonderful.....any cons are minor and not an issue. Carissa Massaro rocks!

Pros

Ease of use by end users, Reporting options, Customer service, Support, Price and value, system upgrades/ updates that are directly from what they hear from system admins / customers - very refreshing!

Cons

Offer more customization choices for look, formats, reporting drill downs, class completions status options....nothing big but I can dicuss more if anyone wants to talk!

Brainier LMS Gets the Job Done

2018-11-21

I value the relationship our organization has with Brainier. They have been a superb business partner. Their LMS product works for our needs and also provides a number of features that fall outside of our scope. Their interest in listening to their clients is apparent. Our input seems to matter. We will continue to work with Brainier to achieve our training needs.

Pros

The Student portal of the LMS is fantastic.

Cons

As with many LMS(s), the administration portal could be designed to be a little simpler to use.

So far, so good

2020-02-14

Pros

It is great because you can build your courses directly into the LMS, or import if you would rather.

Cons

There is an opportunity to improve the graphics. You can't tailor the look and feel of the page that employees land on. It can appear a bit noisy.

Response from Brainier


Hi Cheryl,
Thanks for the review. I think some of limitations of the system you're experiencing might be role-specific. The Brainier LMS is actually quite "skinnable" as well as flexible in using custom HTML pages. Please reach out to Brainier support at support@brainier.com to clear up these issues. We'd love to show you just how robust The Brainier LMS is.

Pros

Excellent communication with Brainier team, weekly meeting are very beneficial.

Some of the work is quite technical with integrating Brainier and UltiPro and for someone without background knowledge in that area it can be frustrating and a bit difficult to understand what is happening in the process.

Exceeds our needs in a learning management software

2017-12-21

Pros

The system is easy and straightforward for administrators as well as end users.

Cons

The only suggestion which might make the LMS even more appealing would be to have additional high quality content which would meet our needs in certain areas so that I didn't have to search and vet additional providers.

Elizabeth's Review

2018-12-05

The customer support is amazing. Each person that answers the phone when I call is more helpful then the next. No one ever makes me feels rushed

Pros

Compatibility with other programs and ease of use- mobile viewing capabilities

Cons

I like everything. It was hardest to understand the group files but i think that was because of the files on our end.
