Learning Stream overview

What is Learning Stream?

Learning Stream is a flexible, feature-rich online registration and event management platform specifically designed to support education and training. Suitable for corporate, government, health, school and religious group deployment, the enterprise-level tools are backed by a commitment to support the individual requirements of the client. Learning Stream promises the “human touch” by assigning a project manager alongside the product to better address unique online registration requirements and optimize the process.

In terms of features, Learning Stream enables the marketing of multiple classes or events with branded calendars and pages rich with images, maps, attachments and links. Registration forms can then be customized to ask unlimited, relational questions and capture all of the most relevant attendee information. Registration importing extends this by facilitating the batch registration of data to current or new events created simultaneously. Send automated emails to confirm successful registrations and announce cancellations, while setting up bulk messages, notifications or event reminder alerts.

Learning Stream also integrates with over a dozen established gateways to accept online registration payments while tracking purchases, issuing refunds and applying discounts securely. Safe Harbor compliance ensures the wholly web-based service keeps all data suitably encrypted within a secure hosted environment, while the ability to setup unique administrator accounts provides additional access audit trails. Reporting features then ensure registration data is tracked for export and the convenient review of attendee lists, form question responses, class information, Continuing Education (CE) credits, customer evaluations, financial summaries and more.

As a non profit agency this software provides a low cost solution to online purchasing of our low cost training.

Pros
Learning Stream's flexibility is by far one of its biggest pros. We have been thrilled with the mobile responsiveness as many of our clients don't have any other access.

Cons
Due to the amount of flexibility within the program it can be a little difficult to learn initially but their customer service by far makes up for it!

Good Online Registrar (Could Great With a Little Work!)

Learning Stream provides a cost-effective online interface for online registration acquisition and data management. A first-time online registration service customer might face a significant learning curve to make the software fully operational. The e-mail help & support team is very effective, though I dislike having to contact them for often simple tasks that should be self-resolvable with a decent online support module. With a re-build to the back-end client interface, this would be a top-notch online registrar service.

Pros
The form-builder is fairly straight-forward an easy to work with. Manipulation of form-builder hues and such to generally match the appearance of your existing website is easy. Interfacing billing with our Merchant Account provider was not an issue. In the end, the software accomplishes the intended goal of successful event registration and billing, though we do feel “lost” when using it a lot more often than I desire. The overall cost of use is the most attractive feature of this software.

Cons
The back-end of the software is extremely "clunky" and difficult to work with in most all respects. The client messaging module is outdated and unable to even provide a true proof of your message appearance before being sent. Many features are unintentionally “hidden” and difficult to find. The overall GUI needs serious reconstruction. Data reporting for each form item/question is available, though no filtering of data is offered, you must take data outside of the software (Excel, etc.) for filtering. One of the most significant issues is the lack of a quality (self-initiated) help & support module. The existing help feature is poorly designed and rarely actually provides a customer solution. After an initial telephone consultation for software set-up, all help & support is by e-mail messaging. Problem issues are typically solved in a relatively short order, but there is not a live support desk to turn to. A good online help & support module would be, well, very helpful!

We moved away from learning stream to use another program because it wasn't solving any problems for us.

Pros
This program was the first one of it's kind that I had used when I started my role with GLS. It was easy to learn and understand.

Cons
There was not enough automated features and a lot of things had to be done/followed up on manually.

Fantastic, the customer service is really good.

Pros
Its value. Without this software, we simply couldn't do business. It easy to use and easy to customize.

Cons
It's hard to understand all of its capabilities. It can cost money to have changes or improvements made to fit your business's needs.
