The best Training and eLearning software, based on reviews from HR professionals

Adobe Captivate and SuccessFactors earn Leader status in crowdsourced ratings, while Halogen TalentSpace earns highest customer satisfaction score.

CHICAGO, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on more than 110 reviews from HR professionals, the inaugural GridSM report for Training and eLearning software, announced today by business software review site G2 Crowd, ranks seven products to help HR software buyers in their selections.

The GridSM, G2 Crowd's software recommendation engine, factors in customer satisfaction reported by users and vendor market presence determined from social and public data to rank products.

Training and eLearning software facilitates employee training through instructor-led or self-led courses. The software typically provides tools to test employees' knowledge and track courses completed, as well as social learning tools to facilitate team collaboration. It also generally includes customer training features and content creation tools to create custom training materials.

To qualify as a Leader, a product must receive a high customer satisfaction score and have substantial market presence. Adobe Captivate and SuccessFactors were named Leaders, while SilkRoad, Halogen TalentSpace, and Cornerstone OnDemand were named High Performers. High Performers earn high customer satisfaction scores with a smaller market presence than Leaders. Overall, Halogen TalentSpace earned the highest satisfaction score.

Across all Training and eLearning products, reviewers reported the product they use meets their requirements at an average rate of 80%, and on average reviewers said they were 75% likely to recommend the product they use.

Some highlights from the Training and eLearning software reviews on G2 Crowd:

"Adobe Captivate [gives] me and my team the ability to easily author...training videos that walk my users step by step through the use of my application while providing them with audio and captions for understandability. Not only is the process of recording easy, the output is a professional quality training video that can be accomplished with limited training for my staff. The application has a large feature set which makes it easy to record different things without having to put a lot of thought into how to accomplish it."
- Angela Molock, Technical Product Manager at Rackspace Hosting

"SuccessFactors offers the full suite of talent products that we need to run our company, and achieve real business results. We use the system to provide insights and develop our talent to meet the rapidly changing needs of our business."
- Doty Sinclair, Vice President, Talent Strategy Services at Aasonn

"I love that you have the ability to do everything in one spot and pull that information in whatever way you want. For example: you can be in the process of a performance review and pull any notes or documents you have either entered or uploaded into [Halogen TalentSpace], and split the screen to see, review or copy information into the performance review. It makes the process so much easier than looking at [hand-written] notes, and so much faster."
- Kathy Abbott-Booth, Senior HR Business Partner at Matheson Inc.

"Cornerstone [OnDemand] is a strong solution out of the box. It has a lot of solid design for a learning management system tool. My favorite part about it is how easily it integrates with [other services], and setting up single sign-on. This allows a very streamlined tool from the end user perspective."
- Keri McKiernan, Project Manager at SNL Financial

"SilkRoad's Greenlight solution is simple to master for the LMS savvy and quick to bring online. With the SaaS solution and no internal hardware I was able to bring a medium sized company out of the paper age to streamlined training environment within [six] weeks. We were able to comply to medical ISO 13485 with no issue. This product is a huge win with low startup and a very responsive support staff."
- Patrick Lawrence, Business Analyst at GLOBALFOUNDRIES

Of the 26 software vendors listed in G2 Crowd's Training and eLearning category, the seven ranked products each received 10 or more reviews to qualify for inclusion on the GridSM. In addition, reviewers must have specifically selected they use the products for training and eLearning purposes to have been included in this report.

Satisfaction rankings are generated from the user reviews, and market presence is calculated from vendor size, market share, and social impact. Based on a combination of these scores, each software solution is categorized as a Leader, High Performer, Contender, or Niche.

Premium research access can be purchased on the site for $599 and offers the original data for filtering and weighting, as well as individual profiles of each software platform with the most helpful positive and negative Training and eLearning Software reviews, detailed company information, user satisfaction ratings, feature scores and customer metrics. Future refreshes of the GridSM will provide updated rankings based on the latest reviews and social data.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
