Some highlights from training eLearning software reviews on G2 Crowd:

“SuccessFactors offers a wide variety of products covering the entire full talent suite including L&D, succession, recruiting, and performance management software. Having a “one-stop-shop” for all of our talent management needs was a major factor in our software choice. This not only provides a better user experience for our employees, but consolidates our data into one place.” – Justin K., Talent Systems Administrator and Analyst at Leggett & Platt

“Lesson.ly is simple, intuitive, and provides everything you need in a training platform. It allows you to very simply create your own training content, add videos, images, etc. and has great assignment features that allow managers to take control and interact with their direct reports.” – Jeff A., Training Director at Switchifly, Inc.

“Silkroad Learning was very easy to implement and has allowed myself and my team to create content once and use it in multiple instances. This has saved significant time and money spent on content development and deployment. It has allowed me, as an administrator, to easily push training out to our new hires and to track required training across many organizations within our company.” – Cheryl S., Director of Training at Huntington Learning Centers

“Cornerstone OnDemand allows companies to manage several areas of human performance. This includes: compensation, on-boarding, performance reviews, succession, training, and social interaction. I like that the system can be managed from a single admin console and offers granular control over user access. All of the areas of the product are cohesively tied to one another for convenience and powerful cross-feature functionality.” – Jamie D., Training Specialist at Tennant Company

“Halogen has so many different tools and modules that can be implemented in order to use the system as a one-stop shop for the entire company. Both employees and managers can access the system to be involved in performance management, development, training and so much more.” – Danielle F., Organizational Coach at H.O.
