Very good training portal

Pros

Ease of use, customisable aspects.

Some issues embedding videos, but support forum is a big help with this.

Matrix - A LMS on the right path

2016-10-13

Reports are very important on my business, so I would like they were easy to use and the schedule reports sent to each organization by email could be beautifull and easy to make decisions, not in csv.

Keeps getting better! Excellent support

2018-07-11

Pros

- The dev team is constantly pushing out new features requested from the community and the feature set continues to grow!

Cons

- The reporting seems robust, but is quite wonky and a lot of data you would expect to be captured is not.

Robust, Customizable LMS

2018-11-27

It's been an overall positive experience. If given the option to purchase an LMS all over again, I would choose Matrix.

Pros

I love that Matrix is very customizable and is basically a blank slate for our needs.

Cons

A more organized, intuitive interface would be worth slightly more money.

A world of possibilities

2018-03-21

I was able to dream further about my training programs than with other LMSs. I could see myself creating so many interesting paths and engaging users and students.

Pros

It gives you great resources for blended learning and I really appreciate its sophisticated design and brand image.

Cons

Lots of options can be a con too. You need to be a heavy user and eLearning pro to be able to really use the features. If you are inside an enterprise trying to start or improve Matrix can be a bit hard to understand.

Overall an excellent product and seamless implementation.

2017-08-23

Our go to market time frame was excellent when it came to launching the NetRefer Academy thanks to Matrix LMS.

Pros

The product is customisable, offers a number of features that you wouldn't find in other LMS platforms whilst at the same time keeping the costs low.

Cons

Some features although present are limited such as the gamification options and the API service also lacks some methods when it comes to the ecommerce platform.

The UI is so clean, intuitive for users and provides a modern experience that is visually appealing.

2017-09-27

Pros

It has a lot of customizable features.

Cons

The support staff does respond quickly but sometimes it's easier to explain issues over the phone than having to take screenshots and explain your issues and then have to go back and forth with multiple exchanges to get answers.

Great simple solution but not for developers

2017-08-22

Simple administration of courses with tested results, the ability to handle a very large number of users simultaneously.

Pros

Initial features, integration options with woocommerce in wordpress. The api is a wonderful tool but could be a goldmine if properly documented or supported.

Cons

The API is poorly documented, can't get a log file from anyone @ matrix to even route the problem, seems as if there are no developers that can be reached for the offered api.

Fantastic all rounder solution

2019-02-11

Matrix LMS has replaced multiple prior sites & solutions with a single main site for all of our community digital learning, social & ecommerce needs - it has saved us significant person time in the extensive level of automation possible while also boosting new business models and product offers with its varied ecommerce and digital product features.

Pros

We have transitioned from another solution to Matrix LMS about 18 months ago as we wanted a feature rich and easy to use solution for our digital community - Matrix has exceeded all expectations from ease of installation, huge range of features, automation capability and exception customer support.

Cons

For those seeking high levels of accessibility functionality, Matrix LMS is a good solution with need to be careful as with any tech as to what content is loaded / designed to support accessibility.

Fantastic platform!

2015-03-04

I researched all of the options available and decided on Matrix for many reasons including the look and design of the platform (it has a social media feel to it), because of it's many functions, and because of the excellent price point.

2018-07-02

Pros

Cons

Format is primitive and hard to use would be easier to write a web page to host than using this.

Great and easy LMS

2016-04-22

Another thing is that the course is asynchronous, we really profit from this feature as it gives a chance to the learner to take the course anytime and anywhere.
