Easy, Efficient and professional

5.0 6 years ago

Pros:

The user interface is excellent, and the courses thorough. All our customers tell us how good the courses are.

Cons:

The administration side of things isn't always intuitive, and tracking various customer orders can get confusing unless you know all the specifics of what you want to look at.

Excellent

Pros:

Easy to use for admin and users, can author own modules and edit existing ones, flexible and customisable modules and system admin, great support available

Cons:

Somewhat restricted with the authoring tool without HTML experience, in terms of interactivity, although the system can host SCORM compliant modules from other software

Pros:

The visual quality and ease of use along with the ability of customization to an organisational brand - The support provided by the support team is invaluable - They help make sure that you get the maximum out of the system

Cons:

Own content is labor intensive to upload, especially as a small business you do not have access to creative software such as Dreamweaver to create against

Straightforward interface adapted for our organisation, with good, responsive customer support.

4.0 6 years ago

Comments: Customisable e-learning and risk assessments with organisation-specific user interface.

Pros:

Well adapted to our organisation, in terms of user interface and e-learning / risk assessment content.

Cons:

Additional user guidance videos would be appreciated - they are more user friendly than the Administrators' Guide. This would be particularly useful for some of the tasks that line mangers should perform (they are not as familiar as general system administrators), e.g. progressing / resolving actions raised from risk assessments.

Staff have been friendly, positive and easy to work with even across different geographies

4.0 6 years ago

Pros:

The system is easy to use, and easily modifiable to meet our needs. It provides a range of option on how staff can be tested on the learning material.

Cons:

It would be great if the size of the display area could be larger to allow for more content, graphics or user interaction.
