Thought Industries Feature Reviews

Heather Prendergast

Great experience, especially after using several other platforms.

2018-04-12

Pros

Thought Industries has been great to work with, especially after experiencing many other cheaper LMSs. You pay for what you get. Of course, there are limitations in the platform (as they all have), but many times, you can find a workaround to get what you need to accomplish (you just need a little bit of creativity!)

Cons

Second drawback is the notification system.

Great solution for revenue focused learning businesses

2016-08-01

We've really enjoyed working with the Thought Industries team, and their learning solution serves our needs very well. We are currently running over 15 consumer facing learning sites and offering hundreds of courses with the platform, and it's been a very positive experience so far for our organization.

Pros

The eCommerce functionality is great since we can sell courses and get insight into the financial data with the reporting and analytics features.

Cons

Totally satisfied.

Company and software met or exceeded our high expectations for an LMS partner and software platform

2017-07-25

Thought Industries LMS has been a great foundation for supporting our online and blended training course development

Pros

The software is flexible, intuitive, current/leading-edge technology, and relatively robust from a functions and features perspective. It is also geared towards the new wave of elearning businesses and hybrid training programs - which best fits our needs.

Cons

In the details, the software is highly customizable, but this flexibility requires a relatively high degree of technical acumen to fully exploit.

Modern, Clean, User-Friendly, Powerful

2016-08-09

The platform provides everything we need to quickly and easily build high-quality learning sites and online courses but also has the flexibility and scalability we need to be able to fully brand and customize the learning experiences for our 150+ customers.

Pros

The learner experience is clean, modern looking, and mobile-friendly, which was important for us as most of our learners are on the go.

Cons

We've been very happy working with Thought Industries! We would have loved to experience a trial version, but they walked us through a very detailed demo and put our use cases into action for us!

I love using this software! Robus functionality with easily customizable settings.

2018-06-04

Pros

TI makes it easy for us to do both and the detailed reporting helps us track information about all of the users visiting the site.

Cons

The platform can be a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for and in my book, this is well worth the investment.

We found it to be an easy to use platform that was accessible right out of the box.

2017-06-20

We were able to create another revenue stream, while at the same time push out our content in a different way.

Pros

It's ease-of-use has allowed my company to venture into e-learning without having to master other software programs. We can focus on the 'learning' part of the equation, and not get tripped up by a complicated platform.

Cons

While the platform is very easy to use, it still requires becoming familiar with the tools.

We are very pleased with our transition to the T.I. platform and the opportunity for growth.

2018-04-20

Pros

All while creating uniquely branded learning environments for our clients, managing and updating all of our content in one place, and providing a simple content provisioning process to all admins.

Cons

There were a few features that we worked with the Product team to implement in order to reach our desired outcomes, but they were responsive and collaborative. We did like to see more UX flexibility.

Pros

Courses are easy to navigate from learner perspective.

Robust online learning solution for continuing / professional education

2016-08-09

We run multiple learning businesses here at Penton across a variety of industries such as agriculture, technology, waste management, and the IoT.

Pros

The robust feature sets and flexibility.

Cons

There are cheaper alternatives out there, but you get what you pay for in my experience. With Thought Industries, we view them as a business partner who is committed to our success, and it has been 100% worth the investment.

One of the rep had us up and building content in no time, and the number of page options available to us ensures that our training program never feels stale or repetitive!

Platform does everything we want - with variety and ease

2017-05-23

Delivers what we want to to our students.

Pros

Down the road, we hope to use the webinar features within the platform to lead lectures and deliver different screenwriting genres and have customers buy them one off or as a subscription.

Cons

The platform isnt the cheapest on the market. Nonetheless, we decided to go with Thought Industries because a company we admire was using it to deliver learning to their clients.
