Accord LMS overview

Accord LMS is a web-based Learning Management System catering to SMB and extended-enterprise organizations. The system provides enterprise level functionality and advanced features such as social learning communities, gamification, and ecommerce at a price rivaling many entry level systems. The solution offers a blended learning environment wherein content creators can build a mix of training programs combining online courses, webinars, instructor-led training, documents and more. Automation features simplify the assignment of courses and training analytics.

Accord LMS is primarily a cloud-based application, but can also be hosted on-premise. Unlimited user roles and multiple portals allow for a customized learning experience based on types of learners. One installation could, for instance, offer compliance courses for employees, product training for customers, and sales training for channel partners while offering each group of learners their own content, distributed administration, and unique branded interfaces.

Accord LMS comes standard with the DNN Content Management System. DNN is an enterprise class CMS similar to Wordpress or Joomla. Using the CMS allows a great deal of customization. Web designers can create modern web interfaces that include the LMS as part of the design. Accord also provides multiple skins for a turnkey setup.

With Accord's Active Learner License, the company only charges for users who have taken online training that is being managed in the system. Unlimited free registered users can utilize all other features, such as social learning groups, educational resources, notifications, and third party modules.

Additionally, Accord LMS offers single sign-on and system integration with Active Directory and SharePoint. The solution can be accessed across PCs, mobile, and iPads and also offers .Net API and RESTful Web API for data integration. Accord LMS serves customers across various domains such as education, franchise, healthcare, hospitality, legal, non-profit, retail and technology.

Accord LMS: Flexible, Valuable and Reliable.

Reviewed 2016-06-17
Review Source: Software Advice

Our client company licensed the Accord LMS several years ago to train temporary employees. The courses we implemented guide the employees to understand the business model, consider specific aspects of their new role, and train them to interact with the business system. Some of the content in the courses is confidential, and the Accord implementation helps to limit access to that content by limiting enrollment based on security roles. Courses are designed using the SCORM standard, which allows course development to be done independent of the LMS. The courses have loaded and interacted with Accord very well, correctly reporting quiz scores and completion status. Accord has been a very stabile product, requiring very little administrative attention. Our version of the product has a limit on the number of active learners, so we have had to monitor our usage and either limit the number of learners or adjust the license to fit our needs. We have directed several special requests to the sales department with regard to licensing, and each time they have accommodated our needs. We have found them a good partner to work with. We have kept the software on a maintenance contract throughout, and have generally found this to be a good value. While service requests have been minimal, there have been some key times during software upgrades where we have placed service requests. These were answered quickly and our issues were resolved. The cost of the maintenance contract has increased sharply, and this has caused us some concern. In summary, we have found the Accord LMS system to be flexible, valuable and reliable.

Accord - Nearly there, but not quite

Review Source: Software Advice

We reviewed this LMS along with four other systems. Accord was very competitive with Cornerstone in many features, but lacked in some very important ways. One of the features we found lacking is the ability to book several classrooms at once in multiple offices and have them act as one event. We do a lot of firm wide instruction and need to be able to book one event in many locations. The people at Accord said they would work on that feature if we would pay for it. That was not acceptable.Accord LMS is very easy to navigate. The look and feel is really nice and gives the appearance of a professional system. The reporting tools are good and allow a level of customization. Their sales guy we worked with was very good and fed us all the information we needed in a timely fashion.

AccordLMS provides all of the expected LMS capabilities. The installation and upgrade of this product is simple. The administration is easy, customization is good, and the customer service is excellent. The eCommerce piece is robust and the system allows for multiple portals sharing courses from master to child. The system allows for free access (such as for internal training) as well as purchased access (for external sales, either individual or subscription).

Accord LMS - My first choice

I have been using the Accord LMS for almost a year. I am the administrator of the LMS and charged with adding and maintaining content and learner access. It was very easy to set-up and maintain. Support has been excellent with very fast responses to any question, big or small. I compared several other LMS providers and selected Accord LMS based on functionality, easy of use, support and pricing. My experience with Accord LMS to date has been excellent.The application, hosted with Accord LMS, was easy to set-up. On going maintenance is also very simple whether adding or updating content, creating reports or adding or updating learner access. Should I require support, this is always readily available.

Accord ranks #1 in support, price, and functionality!

My company first began our investigation into various Learning Management Systems a little over a year ago. After an initial introduction to Accord through Capterra, we quickly narrowed down our selections. Accord LMS remained our number one choice until we were ready to finalize the purchase. Though this was a lengthy process on my own company's end (approx. 12 months), our representative Mary Beth was nothing short of amazing as she remained patient, supportive, and enthusiastic. Mary Beth was always on hand to provide updates, answer questions, and consistently connect us to Solutions Engineers to provide insight into features of Accord that best benefited our company. We have been using Accord now for 6 months and have no complaints. Accord ranks #1 in support, price, and functionality in the world of LMS! Many thanks for the continued support!Since we are utilizing Accord to connect various independent distributors, Accord's ability to provide Admin capabilities for over 40+ individuals is unmatched. The organization of levels of employees, as well as automatic reports sent to management is easy to understand and extremely effective.
