A Quality lMS for the Mid-Size Business - FINALLY!

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Overall, eFront checked all of our boxes all the way down to our yearly allotted budgetary restrictions for an LMS. Here are literally most of the our requirements we used for our LMS research: Intuitive UI
Full Admin Access (adding/deleting/editing)
Metrics
Reporting
Scalability
Email Options (e.g, Welcome, Reminders, Completed)
Responsive Support Team
Mobile Learning
Video Hosting
File Formats Supported (e.g., PDF, PP, Docx, SCORM, AICC)
Reusable Modules
Unlimited Space
Version Control
Course Completion Support?
Assessment/Evaluation Support (e.g., set up quizzes)
Easy Set Up/Maintenance
LMS Pricing (e.g., one time, annual, SaaS)
Onboarding Charge
Per User Charge
Webinar Support
Training Question Support (peer to peer or teacher/student)
Customization Portals (e.g., customer specific)
Social Networking
E-Commerce options (nice to have)
Sandbox account available
Bottom line, we really felt the value in our decision and never felt like we had to compromise on any of our requirements. Great LMS, Wonderful Experience, Excellent Customer Service!

Pros:

What we liked most about the software the adaptability. Like most companies we had specific user types and data we wanted to be able to collect from every user. We not only wanted to collect the data, we also wanted to be able to setup specific learning paths and be able to run reports based on our classifications. eFront provided specifc - adjustable fields and open misc. fields we could use to further filter our users.

Cons:

We didn't really have a con per se? We researched long and hard and worked in many sandboxes to find the right LMS for us. If we had any cons or concerns as we setup the LMS, eFront was available and more than willing to answer our concerns with workable options if necessary.

Excellent ELaerning Option

5.0 5 months ago

Pros:

Ease of use for students - this was not great when we first started using EFront in 2015 but has improved significantly over the years and is now getting high marks for ease from our customers.Also, EFront's tech support is and has always been phenomenal - any issue we have ever had is always quickly handled and resolved.

Cons:

Initially, ease of use for students was not geat but this was resolved years ago and now it is fairly simple and we get few complaints on this topic.

Alternatives Considered: CANVAS, iSpring Suite, Moodle and Blackboard Learn

Reasons for Switching to eFront: EFront was the only platform that seem to meet all of the requirements needed per our Federal Regulator in a price range that made since for our small business. Since 2013-2014 when we were in search of a platform others have come along but EFront has been so easy and pleasant to work with that changing companies is not even a thought. Efront is rare in that it has only improved and we have only become happier about our decision to use them.

Few things to know about efront

3.0 4 years ago

Comments: It helps to run a simple learning management system to run online classes.

Pros:

1. It a simple to use SAAS application which allows to run an learning management system for a newbie. 2. I provides the ability to create membership program and assign different user roles to the members.

Cons:

1. It is way too complicated to make basic customization as it doesn't provide the access to its in built HTML files the only thing we could do is make changes in in built CSS files. 2. It costs higher than it should actually be priced at comparing with others.

Alternatives Considered: WordPress

Thank you for leaving us a review. We're glad to hear that you're finding eFront easy to use and that you're making the most of eFront's functionality. In terms of customization, each HTML template can be customised by taking advantage of the powerful plugin infrastructure which safeguards the system from breaking changes through upgrades. Our support team would be happy to walk you through this. eFront offers a Private-cloud, enterprise-ready solution focusing on security and flexibility. These are important features that should be taken into consideration when comparing with other, primarily public cloud, offerings. If you have any questions along the way, our support and customer success teams would be more than happy to hear from you. Thanks again for your review!

eFront after 1 year of use in the pharma industry

4.0 6 months ago

Comments: Overall, the experience is good and it is, so far, one of the nicest eLMS systems i have worked with.

Pros:

Ease of implementation and restriction of information via branches.

Cons:

For pharma industry, one of the severe lacks is that eFRONT does not come with a validation dossier so each company must perform their validation from scratch.

Alternatives Considered: Easy LMS, Veeva Vault, CARA and TalentLMS

Switched From: TalentLMS

Reasons for Switching to eFront: Hosting in Europe, It is a specialized LMS and not just a "module" in another system.

Helpful cloud-based learning management system

5.0 10 months ago

Comments: My overall experience with eFront has been quite positive. eFront is an intuitive and user-friendly Learning Management System that allows users to upload materials and create courses with ease. The reporting and analytics provided by eFront are also excellent, providing up-to-date information about learners and course progress. Additionally, the support staff at eFront have been extremely helpful and responsive whenever I have had a question about the platform or encountered a technical issue. Overall, I would recommend eFront to anyone looking for an efficient and comprehensive Learning Management System.

Pros:

The most impactful features of eFront include its comprehensive course library, ability to customize content for your organization's requirements, and its user-friendly interface. Yes, eFront is easy to use. Its user friendly platform makes it easy to navigate and create custom learning experiences. Integration of eFront with your existing business processes may depend on the complexity and customizability of your solutions. Generally speaking, yes, integration is quite easy and straightforward.

Cons:

One of the least liked features of eFront is the limited customization options for building your online training course. Some users have stated that the user interface is a bit outdated and difficult to navigate, which can be a source of frustration. Additionally, the built-in course builder has limited customization options, and many users have expressed a desire for more options when creating their course.
