Pros
Absorb has been great to learn, the customer support team and CRM's are amazing to work with. They are always willing to help achieve overall success for Admin and learners.
Their customer service is by far THE BEST customer service I have ever received working with any other company. They are fast, responsive and always willing to help me out.
Great looking site design and flawless implementation. Amazing pricing and good product support.
Cons
Again we were really disappointed about the department/sub-department functionality. So if you are using Absorb for multiple clients not just internally then beware.
Thus, whenever you update a course, you will have to re-enroll all users. It has limited assessment options.
Resources don't have a thumbnail- makes them look empty/incomplete. No place for text on the home dashboard.

Flexible and very complete LMS

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It stands out for its simplicity of use and its pleasant user interface. It offers great flexibility in the design of learning experiences, adapting them to the characteristics of each training process. It has an electronic signature so that participants can demonstrate that they met the requirements of their training process. Integrates seamlessly with any eLearning content library.

Cons

I consider that this is a platform with a lot of potential, the only thing that I think can be improved is to simplify some processes to make the configuration easier.

Easy to use LMS platform with the right amount of features for our needs

Reviewed 2 years ago

We were looking for an LMS platform for internal training that could be expanded to customer training afterwards. The sales engagement with Absorb LMS has been a great experience, providing us with the tools and knowledge to properly evaluate the platform (including a trial portal which we could test with our own content). Onboarding was well structured, with a clear plan of tasks to accomplish both...

Pros

Easy to use Solid onboarding training for admins Provides content hosting Supports SCORM and xAPI (Tin Can) Supports Instructor Led Classes Zoom integration BambooHR integration Salesforce integration Overall mature platform Great customer support

Cons

Look and feel customization lacks flexibility Some workflows could be streamlined, especially for course management No actual course authoring functionality: users need to import learning objects created with external tools, such as 3rd party eLearning authoring tools. This is fine for our needs, but it would add flexibility if there was at least some content authoring functionalities.

Great platform for our students and instructional staff

Reviewed 15 days ago
Pros

I love the ability for students to emotionally engage with the course objectives through video storytelling. I love the self-grading aspect and user-friendly interface for the students. I appreciate new features such as Analyze to monitor student activity.

Cons

While it is pricey, I have found much value in the cost. I wish I could make some changes to the flow and student engagement activities.

simple to use, but QA poor and support prioritized by popularity votes on their customer forum site

Reviewed 7 years ago

had it for 3 years. our requirements were basic - no hr integration, no e-commerce, short term users, few courses. yet when we were faced with their sudden requirement for us to move/"upgrade" to their new system that contained functional and design continuity problems from the system version we were using, we were told that our problems would not be fixed due to the fact that not enough other customers had "voted" for the same issues to be fixed. that was a dealbreaker. :(

Pros

easy startup, easy to use (provided everything is working properly)

Cons

Software is AS-IS product. Difficulty getting help with system problems - first tool for them is interpersonal pleasantry, and email with article links to something that may or may not be addressing the reported problem. If there is not an easy out-of-the box solution (addressed by the link they send you by email), it will take many interactions and possibly a video screener of your problem before your issue is investigated. Individual learner issues are typically not investigated.

Chosen Absorb - 3 times

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

What I like most about Absorb is the ease of use as admin. I also value the responsiveness of the customer service team.

Cons

My dislikes are trivial to be honest. I wish the certificate creation tool was easier to use and I had the ability to assign deactivation dates to non-regular users.
