What do you like best?
We have seen LU go from a small, functional LMS solution to a real contender. They have amazing customer service and they are constantly making improvements, and yet release management is a no brainer. The UI is beautiful and easy for everyone. But, the price is the best part. I tell everyone who is looking about LU. Great out of the box, very easy to configure (even a newbie could do it)!
What do you dislike?
So, I actually don't "dislike" this but this is where you look for the challenges right? LU has a lot of fabulous learning features, but it does not yet offer larger integrated enterprise solutions (recruiting, performance management, etc.) and not everything is customizable. So if you want huge and complicated, LU is not right for you.
Recommendations to others considering the product
This is an "out of the box" solution- easy set up, easy implementation. Look at the features they have and if it meets you needs- do it. The price is fantastic and it is very reliable. We have had very few issues and they have great customer service. If you need considerably more than they offer... well chances are you wouldn't even be reading this because you would already be looking at a larger solution.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We used LU as a temporary gap filler while we got Cornerstone up and running (which took a year+). We still have a few stragglers in LU as we find work arounds to get them into Cornerstone. We have several times considered staying in LU, but in the end our complex needs keep the long term plan Cornerstone. We plan to keep an eye on LU and keep the door open to come back as they develop.
