Comments: The Accord LMS system has been a very useful tool in creating a structured learning environment that our users can easily follow. I recommend it highly to anyone who wishes to have their own ┬┐online school┬┐.

As with any product, there are some preliminary concepts to learn, and once learnt, it became an easy to use and very flexible product. The account manager assigned to us provided excellent training and has always answered any questions we had. Their Tech Support also responded with answers quickly. This LMS is suited to our needs because we do not need the large amount of licenses some other vendors require as a minimum to get started. It is a very cost effective LMS.

Pros: They quickly customized the look and feel of the client interface for us. Support has been excellent with very fast responses to any question, big or small. Initial training was easy to follow and almost unnecessary - the system is so user friendly! On-going maintenance is also very simple whether adding or updating content, creating reports or adding or updating learner access. Should I require support, this is always readily available.

Cons: The reporting functionality, while improving, is not as simple as the rest of the interface. It is a little difficult to figure out on your own, but the Accord LMS Support provided additional FREE training for me to understand it better and has offered to assist me in creating the reports I need.

Overall: I have been using the Accord LMS for six months and knew very little about LMSes prior. I am the administrator of the LMS and charged with adding and maintaining content and learner access. I compared several other LMS providers and selected Accord LMS based on functionality, easy of use, support and pricing. My experience with Accord LMS to date has been excellent.

Recommendations to other buyers: Talk to the company. Make sure you compare all offerings. Having a great product is one thing but having a great partner is something else! My company is new to the LMS world and we selected Accord LMS for its price point and functionality. We have not been let down!

Wow! Thanks so much for your input. We've got some great stuff coming out later in the year that I think you'll love. I also appreciate your feedback on the reports. Our designers have built remarkable flexibility into the reports, but that can be a little overwhelming. Fortunately, once they're defined, the process takes over and they're automatically distributed to whomever should see them with only the data that they should see. We'll keep our eye on ways to simplify the reporting engine without giving up functionality. In the meantime, our team is always here to help if need an assist.

Customer Service is Great!

Pros: Customer Support and User friendly

Cons: Administrative side is not so user friendly

Overall: Our company purchased a license through Accord 1 year ago. It's taken us about that long to get up and running due to all of the conversion of our internal documents. Along the way, Accord members have checked in with us and helped when needed. Whenever we have run into a stopping block, they took little to no time to get back with us and help us continue on in our setup and roll out. Our employees that use the LMS on a regular basis are really enjoying it. It allows them to see visual demonstrations of a process, where as before they could only read a process document.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm really pleased that your learners are enjoying their new training. I hear what you're saying about the administrative tools. There is a lot there. We're working on some admin updates (too early to share) that I think you'll like.

Pros: Great support, great software and pretty easy to use

Overall: This is a great product!! Easy to use, the support is amazing and the features are great!!! I am from the education world and did not hear of Accord LMS until I moved to the business world. If I go back to education, Accord is coming with me!!!

Pros: It is very easy for the end user to navigate.

Cons: It was somewhat confusing on the admin side to learn at first, but the Accord team was very patient and provided lots of help in learning the system.

Overall: We were using a different system with Articulate products before finding the Accord LMS. The old system was quite problematic and was unavailable/offline a LOT. The Accord LMS has so many more features -- gamification, social aspects, as well as a great platform that is easy for the users to navigate -- and is slightly less expensive than our other one. We are a very small company and use the Accord LMS for our customer elearning platform and our students who have used both the previous LMS and the Accord LMS really LOVE the Accord LMS.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think the Accord LMS is an excellent value. I highly recommend it! I have researched several others out there and this one gives us the biggest bang for our buck.

Comments: We had a very extensive requirements list, and during the sales cycle, it seemed as if Accord could meet all our needs. Now that we've completed our implementation, those expectations have been met, which is great (and not always the case with software). We hit a few minor snags as we got up and running, but the Accord LMS support staff was always there to help us troubleshoot and come up with a solution. We also appreciate the amount of control we have over the tool, in terms of being able to make a lot of updates ourselves.

Comments: Accord LMS is a very affordable LMS system with great functionality and intuitiveness. It worked out very well for my company's more unconventional use of the system as well. Their customer service and support is top notch; their employees are extremely friendly, nice, helpful, and timely in their communications. Accord was able to customize the LMS to my company's needs and brand!

Comments: Mary Beth and Matt Myers have been a wonderful asset in our new adventures in LMS production. They provided training each step of the process, and are always available for prompt responses. They even go the extra mile to attend web meetings with us and our other business partners when needed.

The system was easy to set up and use based on their guidance.

Accord LMS has changed the face of training for our company.

Comments: This is our first LMS system and our audience is very unique. Before choosing Accord, we spent over a year researching and speaking with a wide variety of providers. We had a long list of requirements! We found that Accord provided the best interface, storage, flexibility, and customer service, for a company of our size and budget. The folks at Accord are incredibly responsive and customer-focused, patiently answering our questions and working to meet our needs in a timely manner. There have been features that we desired, but were not available yet. I do not believe there is any product on the market that meets every single need. However, Accord listens to its customers and we feel included the growing process. Accord works to enhance the product and meet our needs.

Comments: The Accord LMS was chosen because the user interface is clean and very user friendly. I had set aside quite a bit of time for working with users after our go live date. By the end of the second day the email and calls from the user base had evaporated. We had very good comments from the users such as why do you wait so long to switch. The software installed and configured very quickly and easily. Both the sales and support staff friendly and respond quickly to calls. The user base imported easily from our previous LMS. The software is roles based, this has enabled us to create prescriptions that are customized to meet our specific need. For the cost it is very robust.

Really pleased

Customer Support

Pros: The support has been terrific, the product works very well. Our agency recently upgraded to 64bit servers and the transition was smooth. The company is receptive to suggestions and welcome our input.

Cons: The only pseudo con I can give at this time is that the product is relatively new to the market, hence my slightly lower Feature Richness score. I have no doubt that in time this product will be as feature rich as any other competing non-DNN product. It really is pretty well loaded now as is.

Overall: Great support and a very good product. We have had nothing but a great experiences. It does what it claims to do and does it well.

Easy customization to include your portals look/logos/etc.
Many web 2.0 integration features including the best CMS capabilities, social networking capabilities, forums, blogs, chat, and wikis.
Manager features to quickly setup Learning Events (SCORM presentations and Quizzes) as well as the ability to setup external Learning Events ( URLS, YouTube, Flash ) is a breeze to configure.
Learner module serves up content to learners based on their roles/profiles.
Attempt history log is available as well as quiz results reports for all quiz and surveys.
Learning Events are searchable.
The support team behind this product is outstanding.
When we needed assistance , it was provided immediately and professionally.
Good product documentation.
Pricing structure is fantastic.

Cons: Like any good application, there is a bit of a learning curve.
However, as noted above, documentation is good and is kept current . This helps to ease the learning curve

Overall: When they say that Accord LMS is one of the most robust, extensible and cost effective platforms in the LMS industry, you need to listen.
It's true.

Pros: Accord was very responsive to our needs and quickly resolved any issues that came up. We needed a system that was easy to implement and use by us and our clients and they have come up with a winner. We also did not have a big budget to work with, so Accord was an easy choice for us.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Overall: Would highly recommend the product to small to medium companies as well as large ones.
