"Pretty easy to use"

What do you like best?

My company uses Minflash for our trainings, it's really easy to use regardless of how tech savvy you may or may not be. You upload a document, employess scroll through it using arrows to read it. It has the option of adding quizzes. When you reach the last page you receive a certificate of completion. I like the fact that it saved your previous completed courses, so you can go back and review info or just go back to print the certificate if for some reason you need it several years down the line.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike is when my employer uploads a long document and it doesn't break it up into sections. You end up having to read 300 pages on one page, the minute you scroll through to the next page you hit the certificate page. Also, when scrolling down a long document that was uploaded as one page sometimes it will freeze or jump back up to the top.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use. Useful both to employee and employer. I recommend putting in a bit of work before uploading the document to break it up into portions, it uses the tool more effectively this way and makes it more user friendly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is an efficient way to verify that employees are really completing their trainings. It sends email updates to the employer when a person completes the training, so we both end up having a record of it.

"Training Coordinator / LMS Administrator"

What do you like best?

It is a very intuitive system. I like the ease in which I can create course content, assign, assess, track, and report training assignments.

What do you dislike?

Currently having to flip between browsers (IE11 vs. Mozilla v 54.) for content creation functionality versus viewing Training History. I believe this will be fixed on the next release.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with a Trail version to ensure the system has the functionalities you require. Also assigning a proficient administrator with a background in technical writing and document control is a plus when managing content within the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to remote onboard new hires which realizes a cost savings for our company.

What Corporate LMS solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Intuitive"

What do you like best?

I like the concept of the training being intuitive for any user. I was trained on this about a year before I got around to utilizing it directly myself. I didn't have too many notes on it but I was able to work my way through it. A few trial and errors, but nothing that could not be fixed. The features are easy to use in that a user can easily replace slides w/o messing with the rest of the presentation.

What do you dislike?

I haven't encountered anything that I'm not a fan of. Everything seems fairly simple to use and the only 'issue' was originally with my rights to creating certain courses. With the help of a coworker who acts as the main admin, she was able to help resolve this quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm utilizing the program to train my new hires. We have a group of new hires that we have nearly weekly to which I don't have time to conduct personal calls each time. The program allows me to create the orientation and ensure they are not "skipping" over things by popping in interactive pieces.

"Mindflash is a great product. Easy to use."

What do you like best?

I love the simplicity of managing multiple employees. With their newer interface, it's become some simple to enter a quick search and update progress of an employee.

A close second, is their support. Every time I've had a question, I've been able to call or email and get a response that makes sense.

What do you dislike?

On the mid tier plan, I have 1 custom field, and the top tier plan has 10. If I could change anything, I would like 2 - 5 custom fields for bulk reporting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mindflash is a solid product. It's basically like having a structured Youtube video, but the capabilities of series, quiz's, reporting, and much more. Upload your video,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our product is fairly complex. Since there are a bunch of agents throughout the United States and EU, it's a simple way to distribute knowledge to our partners. It helps eliminate the traditional "fly someone somewhere " to a class room for training

"My best partner relationship"

What do you like best?

The interfaces are intuitive, it's easy to use, and if I have a problem or question the support team is responsive and helpful. As a tool, it allows me to be more efficient and productive in my business and my clients are delighted with the quick turnarounds I can provide.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike. Over the years I have found little features I'd like to see added or improved ... and they have all been implemented. They listen to their users and respond to suggestions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the trial, experiment with the features. If you have questions, their support is the best. If you decide to use Mindflash, it's an easy cost justification to make for your finance people. A training program built out on Mindflash can make you look good!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've developed nearly 200 online courses for clients, enabling them to deliver online training quickly and save money. They no longer have to send trainers all over the world to bring their sales force up to speed on new products or releases. I rework sales presentations and use the Mindflash platform to add handouts, narrations, and quizzes - transforming material the clients already have into useful online training. Mindflash has been the single most beneficial relationship in developing my business.

"Mindflash: Best in show!"

What do you like best?

It's easy to use both from content creation and uploading your courses as well as customer-facing interface. Navigation is a breeze and Mindflash is continually improving on their product. During the rare occasions that there is a problem, their customer support is prompt, friendly and very helpful.

What do you dislike?

There could be some improvements with advanced reports and when needing to tasks where you need to choose multiple users or products. I would really like to see a live environment where our customers could log in and take a virtual class.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a way to distribute eLearning, Mindflash can solve this problem. You are also able to link with Shopify which allows you to monetize your courseware as well. Customer support is some of the best I've experienced and they can answer your questions quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to train our customers virtually, 24/7. Because we have customers in various time zones, Mindflash allows us to get our training out to them regardless of where they are in the world. We have started using the Live tool for registration for our virtual classrooms. Linking this with Shopify is allow us to monetize our instructor-led classes.

"Mindflash has changed our training lives!"

What do you like best?

Extremely easy and intuitive UI. Great support and partnership.

What do you dislike?

New development is slow to roll out. Their reporting has been problematic, but they are developing new reporting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Listen to them and follow their Best Practices. They can guide you in the right direction and provide great support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mindflash has allowed us to scale our training content and provide tracking/accountability for our users.

"Mindflash is great for training"

What do you like best?

I like that I can create training opportunities and send them out to my team around the country instantly.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if there were more guidance on how to set up a class - adding audio and changing quiz options can be confusing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Training needs when our employees aren't in one location. Making sure everyone has the same initial education about our business.

"Mindflash online training works well for us"

What do you like best?

As a nonprofit medical laser training organization, mindflash has evolved into our primary vehicle for training worldwide. It works. It's easy for us to understand and manage, and doesn't require us to buy nor learn complicated software to post our training programs. Even so though it allows us to embed our own audios and videos in these training programs, plus provide active links for more in-depth information for those who choose.

What do you dislike?

Our "hassle factor" with mindflash isn't so much because of mindflash itself, it's some of our users who don't read our simple directions just to log in and start. Besides that obvious issue, there is a problem in our health care markets because many of our students login from hospitals, and many of the hospital I.T. departments block both the emails and online access to mindflash for their own internal security purposes. We generally have them access the programs from home then.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our primary nonprofit business is medical laser training. Historically this has all been done through regional seminars where people drive or fly in for a couple days or more for training. We used to cover 20 cities several times per year with these seminars. Now we do only 2 or 3 cities multiple times for the live seminars, and the rest has been taken up by the mindflash online training. It's also expanded availability of our training worldwide which now makes up a significant share of our training. The elimination of travel for both our own staff and for students obviously saves lots of money. We still do provide inhouse training at medical offices and hospitals where you need more than just online training, but we still use the mindflash online courses to prepare these sites for our arrival and it saves time when we do go in - typically saving an entire day onsite.

"Simple and Effective "

What do you like best?

The ease of use and intuitive features are great - very easy to teach other training professionals (and even non-professionals) how to get around.

What do you dislike?

Large file upload timeouts are frustrating. Some reporting functionality (such as quiz question-level reporting) is not easy to find.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Confirmations and checklists - we have lots of things we need our trainees to attest to (Yes, I agree or Yes, I've done this thing you've asked me to do). Right now, we rig quizzes to suit this need, but it would be neat to see this type of functionality as perhaps an alternate quiz type.

"A robust LMS that doesn't break the bank"

What do you like best?

Competitive pricing, easy course creation, simple to distribute

What do you dislike?

Lack of critical functionality, missing question bank for creating final exams, not sure this was built with in-house training in mind, no custom reporting features, quizzes have limited formats, can't export quizzes or quiz questions

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider how you'll use it. If you're onboarding large numbers of employees, this may not be the best system. But if you want to create courses quickly and easily on a short learning curve, Mindflash is great. It's got a nice UI, though catalogs and series can be confusing to learners at first. There isn't much of a tutorial for new users, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're only using it for external courses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reduced time to create courses & more professional look/feel, but no significant benefits to the company besides training team efficiency when we moved from our previous LMS.

"Excellence of Mindflash"

What do you like best?

This is a very easy to use, but versatile program for training.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have any complaints regarding this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have recommended this product many times to others who are looking for a training platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used this program to provide online training to our staff and our volunteers for many years. It can easily be learned by individuals who have little experience in designing online training experiences. This program allows us to meet the training requirements for all volunteers who are not available during scheduled trainings or who live a great distance from our training center.

Nothing really, everything is laid out in order to navigate and doesn't let you skip any training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for training purposes.

"Training for the masses done easily."

What do you like best?

Great way to get training out to a mass amount of people.

What do you dislike?

Slightly disorganized dashboard but it can be filtered to easily find what you want if you have a lot of courses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am a pretty technical guy and figure things out myself most of the time. I would just say to have your courses outlined and spend some time writing out your trainings so they include the great features of questions so you can gauge the user's knowledge of what you are trying to convey.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Onborading training. All employees get the same info.

"Mindflash allowed us to reach clients we'd never be able to train without the technology "

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Mindflash is it's a real people-pleaser. Trainees love the technology and are constantly requesting more trainee spots for their team. It makes their lives easier and we're able to reach clients globally.

What do you dislike?

The password requirements are tough for some trainees to handle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's very easy to create a course. The technology is easy to learn and intuitive for the most part.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are training clients who never would have been trained in person or would have read a manual.

"Good online course management"

What do you like best?

Courses are easy to upload and maintain. Interface for users is easy to understand.

What do you dislike?

The reporting options, while improved, are not as useful or effective as they could or should be. Many of the reporting options are designed by database developers and are not useful to a user. They should be designed from a user standpoint.

Sometimes it is difficult to get support. Even though they say they will respond within 4 hours, they do not. I do have a time zone difference, but it is frustrating to email back and forth for assistance trying to explain a problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are making online training available to our users at an effective cost point. The quiz feature is easy to use. It would be nice to have a fill-in-the-blank feature. Reporting has improved and they are constantly making upgrades to available features.

"Best online service provider we've found"

What do you like best?

We switched to Mindflash in early 2013 and have never looked back. Easy to use for us and our clients. The help desk is very responsive. They schedule online meetings on a regular basis to keep us informed. Most of all, the system works.

What do you dislike?

The allotted space for a course description is pretty small. It would be nice to have enough room to write a complete course description.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check it out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We provide online classes for our entire industry. We need a quick simple service that people can use all over the country. We don't have a full-time help desk so it needed to be easy to use.
