Pros

Docebo's user interface is one of the best out there. I was impressed with the clean look and feel of the platform which was reinforced by our learners through their own feedback.

The over experience using the platform has been pretty good and lots to learn as an admin. There are definitely lots of functionalities that I have not seen in any other platform which is really good.

The robust features, superlative customer service, and the ease in which you can empower other users has been a boon to our learning/training initiatives.

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.

This upgrade should not have been released without more internal testing. It's a mess and new problems creep up every day.

Hardly anything because key features are not working and support is not addressing them.

Docebo is losing customers at a fast past and I cannot recommend it to my clients anymore, which is a shame.

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.

Looks good but a little clunky

Reviewed 4 years ago

Evaluating the software and still might get it because it could be better than Absorb.

Pros

It is clean and seems to have a lot of functionality.

Cons

It's a little clunky - sometimes 'back' doesn't take you back (and you should not need a back! it should be readily apparent how to get back to where you were, which it isn't always), and there seem to be some glitches.

Comprehensive LMS Choice

Docebo has allowed us to work more efficiently and increase learner engagement.

Pros

This is a true LMS - not a Payroll system that added on an LMS. Docebo allows you to fully customize your LMS experience and offers several integration and automation options.

Cons

The LMS doesn't play well with calendar appointments in Outlook for learners enrolling in training.

Our company chose Docebo as our LMS vendor earlier this year.

I like the modern look and feel of Docebo in terms of widgets and white space and flexibility.

The functionality related to their webinar courses is severely lacking. This has impacted us negatively as a Docebo customer.

Docebo creates an extraordinary customer experience supporting you in achieving all of your goals!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are able to leverage learning to improve employee performance and customer success.

Pros

I love being able to leverage the system to create a learning organization. We are able to deliver information quickly and using multiple modalities.

Cons

Learning how to configure and maximize the utilization of a LMS is complex and takes time. This is by far the greatest challenge with any LMS, yet the supportive and innovative team at Docebo walks alongside you helping you ensure you're able to maximize your investment.

Ideal solution for quick yet powerful eLearning implementation

Reviewed 7 years ago

We've had quite a challenging task to significantly improve learning experience for our partners and employees in just 2 months. In fact, the deployment took us 3 weeks from the trial to a full launch. Thanks to a really fast API response we were able to integrate all our systems: SSO from company and partner portals, progress informer for a learner, real-time courseware customization depending on LMS metadata, certification synchronization with our CRM, extended reporting and some other important items. We're excited about how fast Docebo grows and eager to use all of new cool features that are to be added in future versions!

Pros

1. Fast and easy-to-use interface 2. Flexible settings 3. Reach functionality, including full support of business process to certify our partners 4. Fast and professional support and reaction to feature requests. 5. Very responsive API

Cons

We'd like to see richer API (to have access to all of the objects on LMS side and manipulate them).

Docebo is a top tier LMS, with added gamification features that other lack.

Reviewed 4 years ago

They are a fantastic option, and have unique gaming elements that add value over the already outstanding LMS platform functionality.

Pros

It has great administrative capabilities for reporting and managing hierarchies, very cool gamification elements, and solid performance and support.

Cons

It isn't for everyone. Although they have a wider use-case range than most, if you don't need the gamification then they don't have a lot of other differentiators from other LMS platforms.

Docebo is a cost-effective customizable powerhouse LMS

Reviewed a year ago

Docebo was very simple to roll out. It is very turn-key experience early-on, but also allows you to grow it into the LMS of your dreams. My LMS admin has been able to shape the learner experience by utilizing all the many customization features Docebo has. It is an integral part of our company's daily learning.

Pros

The control the platform gives you. The customization options are off the charts! We've completely bent Docebo to our desires and set up various views for different roles and departments, as well as customer reporting. The white label experience is also fabulous.

Cons

The thing I least like about Docebo is actually an asset to them. They offer additional modules including social learning and learning insights, but both at additional cost. Since we didn't purchase those when we first started with Docebo, now I'll have to get separate budget approval for them.

Cumbersome, myopic UX and sub-par technical support

Reviewed 4 months ago

I have been configuring eLearning systems for almost 20 years and while the admin interface is easy to use for those new to LMS, and it's not the worst LMS platform... this is a lightweight system that lacks the critical component of end-user/learner experience, content organization structures, search functionalities, general wayfinding and flexibility as authoring technologies change.

Pros

Hmmm. Exploring gamification looks like it may be promising but honestly, I'm already disappointed that the demo environment presented to us has all sorts of customizations that require external resource/effort to create.

Cons

Inability to easily preview the learner experience is at the top of my laundry list of functional limitations

Everything you could ever want in an LMS!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We adopted Docebo as our LMS almost two years ago and have never regretted the decision. The robust features, superlative customer service, and the ease in which you can empower other users has been a boon to our learning/training initiatives. Any issue we have encountered has been solved either by the LMS itself, or by working with a technical representative to come up with a solution. Our instance supports over 10,000 users with multiple domains, and Docebo handles all of this seamlessly. Our end users have also remarked on the easy navigation and pleasant UI/UX. I can't imagine using another LMS with the same level of success Docebo has provided.

Pros

Ease of use, robust customization options, user friendly, great technical support.

Cons

There could be better communication of smaller updates or patches to the system. Major initiatives are communicated, but some smaller changes are not done so with the same urgency.
