"Silk Road Learning Review"

What do you like best?

I love the comprehensive features and reporting. There is great flexibility in settings to manage and track training in almost any way you want to. Very customizable to your organization's needs. Online support is usually very responsive and easy to deal with.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was an easier way to make custom reports for people that are not IT pro's that do not understand programming language. Their reporting is already quite flexible, but this would be even better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are so many features and options within this platform that you really need to dig in and take the time to learn how all of it works. Also, probably want to talk w/ an experienced person that has used the platform before getting too far into the implementation. Some decisions on how you structure the d.b. can be harder to change later.

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

We are managing the many company & regulatory training classes required of all the various positions within the company. Without an LMS like this that is customizable, we would not be able to effectively manage all the different requirements for so many people.

"Used for multiple platforms of training"

What do you like best?

We use SilkRoad Learning across multiple platforms for training delivery. It makes the transfer of information seamless. We can rest assured that all employees company wide are getting the same information and therefore, able to implement it the same.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features are not user friendly. They leave you scratching your head thinking why did they not allow this. But not enough to impact the overall impact of the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely take the time to go through Demos and speak to current users. I think they will be able to assist you with knowing what you will be undertaking (as long as they are honest). It will solve problems but with any new software there is a learning process to it. Be ready and aware of that. It did not take us long to "get with it" but there is still a slight process to learning the intricacies of the software.

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

We have utilized this to maximize the delivery of training to all employees. All trainings are now found in one place and very easy to follow for the trainee.

"Silkroad Learning"

What do you like best?

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. SilkRoad Learning has been easy for our users to implement, as the student portal is very user-friendly.

What do you dislike?

The reporting capability can be difficult to customize. Would love more AdHoc reporting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely take the time to go through Demos and speak to current users. Attend SilkRoad Connections every year once you become a user. It is a valuable experience to hear the future of the company and the products, and to meet current users to hear/see how they are using the products to their fullest capacity.

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

Delivering training to our company and franchise users. SilkRoad Learning has allowed us to save time in content development and deployment to our users. The benefits are numerous, we have been able to better track required training and overall eLearning usage and completion with this system. We have been able to more effectively push required training to our users and involve our supervisors in the tracking of such training via scheduled reporting.

"Utilizing SilkRoad's Greenlight solution for learning management is a breeze."

What do you like best?

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 6 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.

What do you dislike?

As with any ISO 13485 requirement any changes to the SAAS version requires a validation/verification cycle which was able to be reduced to twice/year.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly effective for companies that do not have a large IT presence and require quick turnaround to go-live.

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

With any growing business that requires high standards for an effective training system you quickly outgrow any one-person paper based system. With a need to comply with the stringent requirements of ISO 13485 you need to have a sound and effective solution. With a tight budget no additional resources could be added and the training department responsibilities are shared with corporate document control. With SilkRoad's Greenlight we were able to maintain a one-person part-time job and increase our effectively to deliver and record training accuracy 10 fold. End user system adaptation was painless and very quick. Regulatory audits saw outstanding benefits from a 5 day turn around on records to minutes. Management reports reduced outstanding training from almost 50% to less than 2% at any given time.

"Makes Hiring any other way seem impossible"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that each candidate has their own profile which is similar to a social media site. It makes it easy for our hiring managers to find out and look at every piece of information regarding a candidate because it's all in one place. Moving candidates along the workflow is helpful because it allows me to be on top of the hiring managers and make sure that they're moving candidates along in the workflow. It has made hiring so much easier and quicker.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features are not user friendly. When trying to navigate the system- there are a few things that logistically would make sense to be able to do however you're not able to due to the way it was set up. There are a few of these instances but not enough to make the system unusable.

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

We've completely implemented OpenHire for our Applicant Tracking. Previously we were just doing everything by email which was convoluted and frustrating. Having Openhire from Silkroad has been instrumental in hiring top talented employees. We're also implementing RedCarpet and Greenlight and possibly Wingspan.

"Not an easy product suite to use"

What do you like best?

I like that the system is customizable. I also really like the products integrate with others in the SilkRoad product profile.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that nothing is easy in the system. Compared to other systems, everything takes forever to set up and complete. It also requires a ridiculous amount of training to learn the system--it is not intuitive like other HR suites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would make sure that you have a good understanding of the pain of setup and implementation before committing to the product.

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

We are using OpenHire, RedCarpet, and GreenLight for recruitment/applications, hiring/new hire paperwork, and training, respectively. The main benefit is that the systems are integrated, which cuts down on duplication of efforts by different departments.

"Training solution "

What do you like best?

We were able to streamline the HR processes that were housed on a variety of different programs and sites. It really made training and recruiting much easier on the HR side and also for employees.

What do you dislike?

The role out of each program was very time consuming. I am not sure if it was a software issue on something on our side.

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

Working mainly in Greenlight, it allowed our midsize company the opportunity to grow our training department at a reasonable price and also maximize training efficiency by being able to target employee needs.

"It's been overall good coming from not having an ATS previously."

What do you like best?

I liked having the customer service rep who assisted our team throughly on a daily basis during the implementation phase. She is wonderful and training is very exemplary.

What do you dislike?

The system isn't that intuitive. There are restrictions and limitations that I wish we knew about on the front end,

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

We are enhancing the our applicants experience. We are able to provide automated responses that highlight where they are in the hiring process. Hiring Managers have direct access to their open requisitions and what's pending approval. The recruiter can communicate via the systme with all users.
