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.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
