Pros

This is a great tool for a small start-up company. What I like most about this product is the ability to have single sign-on.
It is a great platform to use, grace to its functionalities and capabilities. User friendly, does not need a manual.
In short, the value for money provided is truly excellent and we highly recommend eFrontPro to businesses wishing to take care of training and certification of personnel.

Pros

I like that CSOD is an integrated HRIS system. It has a great end-user experience and a nice interface.
I also LOVE the Cornerstone Success Center and the Knowledge Base. It's so amazing how theyve built a community of their customers that's actually engaging and helpful.
Excellent UI and End User experience. Great product and customer teams, quarterly updates that always add meaningful, high quality new features.

Cons

Some users have stated that the user interface is a bit outdated and difficult to navigate, which can be a source of frustration.
For pharma industry, one of the severe lacks is that eFRONT does not come with a validation dossier so each company must perform their validation from scratch.
Sorry, I really can't think of any major or even medium flaws.

Cons

Since 13.1 came out, we've had nothing but problems with files not loading, 404 errors, server errors, and to make matter worse, expect to wait a week or more to be told, there is nothing they can do.
Learning implementation was difficult, because of all the configurability and our lack of understanding of the limitations.
The worst experience I have ever had with a software or company.

Pros

Ease of use, simple yet powerful. The security features (2FA and Okta integration) are awesome.

Cons

a steep learning curve in learning how to manage (admin) but once you're familiar, it's an excellent LMS

Most Flexible LMS Available

Reviewed 7 years ago

Only LMS I found able to achieve the high level of customization we needed for our implementation.

Pros

Full source code availability with pro services support make this the most flexible LMS for customized deployments. Able to achieve just about any kind of implementation, data collection, reporting, and UX desired. Incredibly good pricing model for corporate LMS deployments looking to own their final solution.

Cons

Implementation and maintenance requires an engineer on staff. Definitely for professionals seeking customizations vs. easy out of the box. Although they have TalentLMS as an option for that if desired.

Vendor response

Hello Greg, Thanks very much for your positive feedback and for taking the time to leave a review for eFrontPro. We strive to make our LMS fit every client's custom needs and we're glad it fit your training needs this well!

A Quality lMS for the Mid-Size Business - FINALLY!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, eFront checked all of our boxes all the way down to our yearly allotted budgetary restrictions for an LMS. Here are literally most of the our requirements we used for our LMS research: Intuitive UI Full Admin Access (adding/deleting/editing) Metrics Reporting Scalability Email Options (e.g, Welcome, Reminders, Completed) Responsive Support Team Mobile Learning Video Hosting File Formats...

Pros

What we liked most about the software the adaptability. Like most companies we had specific user types and data we wanted to be able to collect from every user. We not only wanted to collect the data, we also wanted to be able to setup specific learning paths and be able to run reports based on our classifications. eFront provided specifc - adjustable fields and open misc. fields we could use to further filter our users.

Cons

We didn't really have a con per se? We researched long and hard and worked in many sandboxes to find the right LMS for us. If we had any cons or concerns as we setup the LMS, eFront was available and more than willing to answer our concerns with workable options if necessary.

Vendor response

Michelle, thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We're glad to hear that after a lot of searching, eFront has been able to meet all of your needs. We pride ourselves on adaptability and reliability, so it's great to hear that we've hit the mark in these areas for your organization. We're glad that your organization feels the value in your decision to work with eFront and of course, our Support and Customer Success teams are always on-hand if you need any assistance along the way.

Nuestra experiencia con TalentLMS

Reviewed a year ago

Para nosotros era fundamental contar con un proveedor que entregara y cumpliera con un alto nivel de desarrollo, seguridad y disponibilidad en donde montar nuestros servicios de e-learning. Con TalentLMS y los otros servicios de EFront creemos que podemos seguir desarrollando nuevas ideas y abrir otras oportunidades de negocios en la industria de la capacitación.

Pros

La experiencia de nuestros usuarios alumnos: saber que los alumnos acceden a una plataforma sencilla, moderna y con todas las funcionalidades necesarias, para nosotros ha sido fundamental a la hora de evaluar continuar utilizando la LMS de Talent.

Cons

Posiblemente sea el costo: optar por una LMS que tenga todas las funcionalidades, seguridad y disponibilidad es mayor que contar con una plataforma propia.

Best bang for buck!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Tech support can be a bit behind other LMS options as this one is owned and operated from Greece.

Pros

The interface is simple. Essentially WYSIWYG. Admin is straightforward. I'd suggest that with some tech support at the outset, almost anyone could be trained to administer the LMS.

Cons

Personally, I don't care for some of the cheesier features, such as the social platform or gamification. Call me old-school, but I like my training to be short and sweet. And when I need to re-review it to clarify something, I don't care to revisit the fluff.

Best LMS Available

Reviewed 14 years ago

I would highly recommend the efront LMS systems to any business that wishes to be successful. Thank you efront team!!

Pros

Enterprise allows the supervisors to track the training of their direct reports. The ability to create content to transfer/capture intellectual property is key to the success of any business and efront does this with ease. The support of the efront staff is the best in the industry. eFront is by far the best LMS on the market; all others are fighting for second place.

Cons

I do not feel there are any negatives to this system; I just wish I understood the PHP language to develop my own themes.

The most flexible LMS and CMS ever. Easy to administrate and easy to use.

Reviewed 6 years ago

I would recomend it for Educational purposes as the best tool so far

Pros

Everything works fine. Full customizable LMS. Offers anything you look for. The customers' support is very satisfactory and even in the free version the relative forums do great job. Easy intergration of web tools and the interface after all theese great features remains simple and accessible even by novice. Multilingual features and in addition it is compatible to all browsers. It fosters interaction and collaboration through out the tools that are implemented. .

Cons

I have nothing to mention as a disadvantage. Some people said that background customization needs improovement but this is not one of the priorities of an LMS.

Powerful, Flexible, User-friendly LMS

Reviewed 14 years ago

I strongly recommend eFront to any organization looking for a simple, easy to use user experience. eFront allows the learners to concetrate on the their training, not figuring out how to use a complex system. I am constantly surprised by the powerful functionality I keep uncovering in each new release.

Pros

eFront is a great LMS from both the learner and admin point of view. The entire system is built on the 'fewest-clicks-to-destination' methodology, making it fast and simple to navigate, while containing all of the powerful features necessary in a high level Learning (Content) Management System. Pros: -Theming -SCORM 2004 -Learner-centric UI experience -Learning Community/Social Networking Tools -Facebook Integration -Integrated eCommerce -Open-source Code

Cons

The only con to eFront is that it lacks a few of the more advanced admin features of it's bulkier LMS cousins. That said, with each release more of these features are included as clients request them.

eFront Educational Version

Reviewed 14 years ago

We have purchased and implemented eFront for an number of clients. I would recommend eFront as a "must see" for any company considering an LMS solution. The open source design separates eFront from other LMSs in the market. Epignosis is always looking at improving the eFront user experience and is not just concerned with keeping large customers happy at the expense of smaller accounts.

Pros

Very easy to implement and customize. The eFront developers are very open to product enhancement suggests that we make. They are committed to developing the best LMS on the market at a very affordable price.

Best value LMS

Reviewed 13 years ago

If your budget is limited Efront is one of the best choices out there, with most of functionality of other options that cost in the thousands.

Pros

I have been using eFront for about two years to host a couple of courses and 900+ users. Efront is very easy to setup, has most of the functionality of a more expensive LMS, but the feature that finally made me decide was its ease of use, a design based on simplicity that does not overwhelm users when accessing a course. Most of our site users come from Africa and Asia and they have been able to use the system with little or no guidance. I host this LMS in siteground they took care of the installation.

Cons

I use the free version so requests for help are only answered in the user forum. The forum managers do a very good work but sometimes it takes time to get your issue answered.

We've had the eFront system as our LMS for some years now that provides easy access to a number of training modules for approximately 500 staff across New Zealand. Our users find it very easy to navigate and use and it is extremely simple to set up new users and new modules.

we used the open source version since 2012. The open source was developed and set by our IT colleagues. Some features available in the " old" efront are not anymore available, but the LMS was well developed, and also the hosting service is very important for the clients. We are happy with our choice, which came after a serious market study.

Pros

it is user friendly and appropriate for our needs

Cons

we face some problems with scorm files and time counting , for few months. Now the problem is solved, fix also available for other users, happy to contribute at this. Some other small fixes where done by the good support team.

We have worked with eFront for a number of year. The LMS itself is 'basic' but they have done well to keep up with our feature requests. We have however encountered a number or recent issues with SSO integration where it doesnt work the way that it's supposed to, this is a major issue for us and I'm sure others so I'm hoping they can get it sorted out.
