Integrating Process and Product Training to CRM

2017-12-06

Large process and product trainings can be an ineffective and inefficient use of time considering schedules and makeup sessions for a large sales organization.Brainshark allows us to get trainings out effectively on a large scale and across departments and sites that allows users to complete at a time that works best for their workflow and allows managers to hold reports accountable for completion.

Pros

We can use data to bring real time product trainings to our sales force as necessary depending on client, product or focus.

Cons

The course catalog and transcripts tab in Salesforce can be clunky and unintuitive. Curriculum and transcript tabs are difficult to organize.

The ABC's of Capturing Customers with Brainshark

2018-03-17

It gives great analytics for what content is being consumed, and the viewing details inside the content, and give guidance as to what's important and what is compelling.

Pros

Viewing statistics are very good.

Cons

The mobile player (HTML5) is terrible, and they are really late to improve that given the death of Flash and how most browsers will automatically pull the not-so-great HTML5 player.

Brainshark is a game changer!

2018-05-04

We've been able to save time and additional resources since switching to Brainshark,

Pros

The editing features are excellent and efficient along with the numerous amounts of reporting tools.

Cons

The price is a little steep but so far I think it is worth the investment due to the minimal issues we've had.

I have used brainshark to edit presentations, add narration, and share with others.

2018-06-22

Pros

I enjoy the reporting regarding views and that Brainshark can help me do so many things to be sure my audience is learning from the content I create and share.

Cons

The only thing I might change is to be able to avoid having to record full pages at a time. In those cases, I'd prefer to be able to pause the recording.

Fun tool, but not robust to support large training

2018-05-10

Pros

Ease of use and ability to rapidly create content, also over the last few years built out many new functionalities and was impressed with their improvement.

Cons

Just not robust enough to drive large training events through, more of an add on but it is a hard sell because have other content tools. Decided not to purchase.

Great app for uploading, adding voiceover and distributing Powerpoint presentations,

2018-04-10

It allows me to record voiceovers for my clients powerpoint presentations from my desk, and not have to record each slide's notes in my studio and then have to import them into Brainshark - unless I want to (that option IS available, but just not optimal for me).

Pros

I love how you can add a soundtrack to your decks in numerous ways, including over the phone, with your laptop mike, with a USB mike or you can record them separately and import them into Brainshark.

Cons

If there were more robust editing features (instead of just record/preview/save), that would save some time.

I like brainshark - smart training

2020-02-20

We use brainshark to make sure people do their trainings prior to a big event (SKO, Team Meetings, Etc.). We are able to get 100% people to do it and so far we've been happy with it.

Pros

Easy to find out people's scores and message people to take training. Interface looks good and easy to use

Cons

None that I can think of, had a positive experience so far with Brainshark. So there are no cons from me, would highly recommend

Easy to use testing

2020-08-18

It's easy to create exams and push them out to the required audience.

Pros

Clearly shows due dates and required testing courses. Easy to use video and audio in testing.

Cons

Some of the question types and lengths are confusing. It is sometimes unclear which questions are required or their weight.
