eSSential LMS Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about eSSential LMS's features:

Jeremy Boles

I would recomment eSSential and eLogic without reservation. They are so willing to work with.

2008-08-14

I would recomment eSSential and eLogic without reservation. They are so willing to work with their partners to come up with solutions to meet individual needs and I have not had other eLearning suppiers be even close to as willing to work with me as they are. If I have a question or problem I can talk to a decision-maker at eLogic within seconds. They truly care about my success and that means everything.

Pros

It is in real time and you can do it yourself.

Cons

The only other "Con" is that sometimes there are too many users using the Crystal Reports and I have to wait until I can run my reports.

Customizable application that brings an advanced LMS solution to business large and small

2018-04-23

Pros

Dashboard is very user friendly so the training team has the ability to watch key data and can be updated at any time.

Cons

I really don't have a downside to this product. They've done a great job of making the implementation efficient. User learning curve is somewhat mid to high especially if you are transitioning from another application.

Highly recommend this program due to it's ease of use and above all else, the support that I receive

2008-08-14

Highly recommend this program due to it's ease of use and above all else, the support that I receive whenever I, or one of my other administrators, have a question.

Pros

The customer support I receive is more than I would expect from any outside vendor of a service of this nature.

Cons

Standard reporting features don't always meet immediate needs but there are ways to see what I need to see.

Hard to Start Up- Great to Run

2018-01-23

The software gave us a great way to interface with members of the public and from Community Health Organizations.

Pros

Even when eSSential's HQ was getting hit by a hurricane they took steps to ensure no interruption of service.

Cons

Because the system is so highly configurable, determining which configuration options are right for your organization takes time, and more than a few failed attempts.

Reece, Kristi

With no formal education or experience with an LMS, I was able to use this software quickly & easily

2018-01-23

Pros

Creating notifications that include links to resources and videos to welcome new employees 3.

Cons

1. I do not like that when I make a mistake on the admin side, it can be difficult to fix and (can be) visible to end users. That may be all LMS platforms - I'm not sure. 2. Initially, and until very recently (January 2018), the user manual was difficult to navigate and glean the exact steps to take to complete an action. This has been updated and is MUCH improved. I would still like to see added to the manual - fixes for those mistakes I mentioned. 3. The 'stage' or 'sandbox' environment is ok. It is helpful to test a SCORM course, but we add so much so frequently that I find it difficult to keep it up to date enough to use in any other fashion.

Amazing system!

2017-01-05

The system is easy to use, and have countless robust features that meet my needs.

Pros

The system is easy to use, multiple features and very robust reporting capability.

Cons

It would be great if they had an app, but I believe it is in the works. Other than that. It is a 'best in the class system!'

My experience with E-Logic was amazing! They take the time to listen to ensure that the system is implemented soundly. The VP of Operations was great to work with, and my sales rep has been amazing to deal with since day one!

Overall we really like the elogic software application. We are new to elogic so still learning !

2015-07-20

I do believe the "Standard" report selections could be stronger with some additional features and reports, but elogic offers the Ad Hoc reporting tool that assists with this need.

Once our company's specific uses/processes were troubleshot, the system was reasonably easy to use.

I highly recommend eLogic.

2008-08-18

I highly recommend eLogic. We did a thorough search and feel confident that eLogic is capable of managing our learning system with us. Networking with others in this business, I'm certain that the personal care and individual attention delivered by everyone at eLogic Learning surpasses any other LMS that I've dealt with or learned about.

Pros

We've been with eLogic through a growing phase--the features have improved steadily. Excellent customer support--eLogic is always there to resolve any issues, concerns, challenges right along with us.

Cons

ELogic held our hands, but our own data upload caused several challenges.

I would highly reccomend adding eLogic to your short list of LMS vendors.

Pros

The overall system is easy to use and can be picked up rather quickly by individuals not familiar with Learning Management Systems.

Cons

There are a few features available in other system that are not available in Essential, but the service by far makes up for it.

Best LMS I have ever managed!

2017-01-05

We are in Phase 1 of our deployment and are only using about a third of the platform's functionality.

Pros

my favorite feature is the bulk loading of ILT

Cons

If had to be picky there are a lot of screens to go through from creating a class/course to having it ready to registration/use.

Great system...even better support

2012-05-05

Exceptional experience. I would recommend eLogic to anyone - and I have!

Pros

System is user friendly and feature rich. Even better that they solution itself is the support and service. eLogic is unlike any other company.

Cons

Every system has things you would like to change or enhance. The difference with eLogic is that they are open to all feedback and make enhancements to the system based on user feedback.

Overall the customer support we have received has been wonderful!

2018-01-23

A vehicle to deliver our learning packages, the ability to customize our own look and feel of the platform to meet our expectations as an organization, a high level of customer service.

Pros

The array of functionality it provides to our learners! We have never been able to provide a learning experience like we are now with the LMS.

Cons

The learning curve of never using a LMS, and then to take our current systems/processes and apply them to how the software is built has required both parties to really think outside of the box.
