Pros: Navigation, reports, resources, gamification

Recommendations to other buyers: Use the free demo to decide if this is what you need and like.

Comments: One of the largest issues with LMS systems is their inability to speak well with other systems especially third party RDS systems *Rapid Development Systems* so if you create a quiz via Lectora or Storyline it's hard to get the reports that you need for your organization. Accord here is no different, but what makes them better in this arena is that they do have their own development tools which is a plus. They also work well with organizations in providing customer service and support. Their shortcomings really come from being a relatively new system but otherwise do a good job. It's easy to create job roles and learning paths. They do have gamification and a social media component.

Comments: We reviewed this LMS along with four other systems. Accord was very competitive with Cornerstone in many features, but lacked in some very important ways. One of the features we found lacking is the ability to book several classrooms at once in multiple offices and have them act as one event. We do a lot of firm wide instruction and need to be able to book one event in many locations. The people at Accord said they would work on that feature if we would pay for it. That was not acceptable.

Pros: Accord LMS is very easy to navigate. The look and feel is really nice and gives the appearance of a professional system. The reporting tools are good and allow a level of customization. Their sales guy we worked with was very good and fed us all the information we needed in a timely fashion.

Cons: The biggest deal-breaker for us was the inability to book many conference rooms across our firm for one single event. We loved the rest of the product.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great product for smaller organizations. It's not the best for multi-location organizations. Make sure you test-run all the features you want and do not compromise. I was very disappointed that the feature we needed the most, and other organizations like ours need, was not even on their radar - and once it was, they wanted us to pay at least half the development costs to implement it...sometime in the future.

Vendor Response

by Accord LMS on February 16, 2017

Hi Thomas, Thanks for taking a few minutes to share your experience. I'm sorry that there was some confusion about our functionality. Our Instructor Led Training does support an unlimited number of sessions which can occur in many locations, physical or virtual, all at the same time. It sounds like our team offered to do some custom development in order to customize the feature for your use. That's a service that we occasionally offer to help customers with unique needs, but it's very seldom needed due to the standard functionality of our system. Accord's enterprise customers benefit from unlimited custom portals, unlimited distributed administration, and time-saving automation. Our features are very competitive with other enterprise level systems at a fraction of the cost. If our team can be of assistance in the future, please contact us. Best Wishes, Accord

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.

Comments: My company first began our investigation into various Learning Management Systems a little over a year ago. After an initial introduction to Accord through Capterra, we quickly narrowed down our selections. Accord LMS remained our number one choice until we were ready to finalize the purchase. Though this was a lengthy process on my own company's end (approx. 12 months), our representative Mary Beth was nothing short of amazing as she remained patient, supportive, and enthusiastic. Mary Beth was always on hand to provide updates, answer questions, and consistently connect us to Solutions Engineers to provide insight into features of Accord that best benefited our company. We have been using Accord now for 6 months and have no complaints. Accord ranks #1 in support, price, and functionality in the world of LMS! Many thanks for the continued support!

Pros: Since we are utilizing Accord to connect various independent distributors, Accord's ability to provide Admin capabilities for over 40+ individuals is unmatched. The organization of levels of employees, as well as automatic reports sent to management is easy to understand and extremely effective.

Cons: Thus far, nothing to report

Recommendations to other buyers: Purchasing Accord LMS is a true partnership. I learn new features / capabilities of this software every day. You will not regret this investment!

Pros: The ability to customize the look and feel of the client interface is great and having Interzoic Media as a partner is a plus. We are a very customer oriented company and to work with a company that feels the same way is such a benefit. We have been very happy with both the product and service and they are always available to help or answer any questions. Super reliable product and support. Our customer base has grown and the Accord LMS scales very nicely. No performance issues and works very well with Dotnetnuke.

Cons: nothing really. We are very happy with the product and the vendor. Interzoic releases updates pretty regularly with new features so make sure you upgrade on a regular basis.

Recommendations to other buyers: Talk to the company. Having a great product is one thing but having a great partner is something else. Do not make a decision off of a website features list alone, the Interzoic team is well worth talking to and will give you a different level of support than you are use to.

Comments: We researched more than a few LMS's and the Accord LMS was a perfect blend of features and value for the money. We have been using the Accord LMS for several years and experience with it has been fantastic. Arguably the best Dotnetnuke LMS out there. It simply just works and is very easy to setup and configure. The ability to customize the look and feel of the client interface is great and having Interzoic Media as a partner is a plus. We are a very customer oriented company and to work with a company that feels the same way is such a benefit. We have been very happy with both the product and service.

Pros: Easy to setup and configure. Works very well within Dotnetnuke.

Cons: Nothing really, we like the entire product.

Comments: Our company has been using the Accord LMS for 1 year now. Along the way, Accord Staff Members have been there to help us through the initial set up and troubleshooting stages. We have recently started using it within our whole organization and the end users are giving great feedback. It is user friendly. It allows us to give learners the opportunity to have a visual learning experience instead of just a process document to read over.

Pros: Customer Service User Friendly environment

Cons: Admin Setup is a bit complicated, but luckily Accord Staff Members are right there to help you

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.

Pros: Ease of content upload and site navigation. I have used this software for over five years and have not had any issues, even after several software upgrades.

Cons: For my purposes, I have no issues with this software

Recommendations to other buyers: Look for flexibility in the software's reporting function.

I have found Accord very easy to learn and have especially been impressed with the great customer service I have received.

Cons: So much to learn. Reporting feature could improve.

Recommendations to other buyers: You won't find another LMS that offers what Accord does for the price.

Pros: Our client company licensed the Accord LMS several years ago to train temporary employees. The courses we implemented guide the employees to understand the business model, consider specific aspects of their new role, and train them to interact with the business system. Some of the content in the courses is confidential, and the Accord implementation helps to limit access to that content by limiting enrollment based on security roles. Courses are designed using the SCORM standard, which allows course development to be done independent of the LMS. The courses have loaded and interacted with Accord very well, correctly reporting quiz scores and completion status. Accord has been a very stabile product, requiring very little administrative attention. Our version of the product has a limit on the number of active learners, so we have had to monitor our usage and either limit the number of learners or adjust the license to fit our needs. We have directed several special requests to the sales department with regard to licensing, and each time they have accommodated our needs. We have found them a good partner to work with. We have kept the software on a maintenance contract throughout, and have generally found this to be a good value. While service requests have been minimal, there have been some key times during software upgrades where we have placed service requests. These were answered quickly and our issues were resolved. The cost of the maintenance contract has increased sharply, and this has caused us some concern. In summary, we have found the Accord LMS system to be flexible, valuable and reliable.

Cons: We were recently surprised by a significant increase in the maintenance contract cost.

Recommendations to other buyers: Our decision to use Accord LMS was driven primarily by the Web CMS Platform that was already in place. Accord LMS is the most full-featured system currently available on that platform.

Vendor Response

by Accord LMS on June 23, 2016

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review. I'll pass your comments onto the entire team. Our price increase in January 2016 was the first in 4 years. For our hosted accounts, which include maintenance, it was only a modest increase. Our self-hosted customers did experience a more substantial increase. This reflects the additional support requirements that factor into most on-premise installations such as client server access, configuration, updates, etc. This may be why most of our competitors do not offer self hosted systems. I'm confident that you will still find the Accord LMS to be the best deal around.

Pros: I love the basic layout of this LMS. It's easy to access your courses, at one glance you can see what you've completed, what you are in the process of completing, and what you haven't started yet. The resources tab is another excellent feature, which allows one to post important material that can be accessed by anyone registered in the LMS, not just those who are assigned specific courses. And I can't speak highly enough about the customer service. Any issue or question I have had was immediately addressed by my service guy, and he has been kind, patient, and helpful along every step of the way.

Cons: The reporting function is a little difficult to figure out on your own, but again, the customer service is amazing and happy to help walk you through it.

Recommendations to other buyers: 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! It's easy to navigate, and they do a wonderful job with branding for your company. With 150 (give or take) employees, we didn't need a huge system, and since I'm pretty new to this, I wanted an LMS that would be simple enough for me to figure out on my own, yet powerful enough to handle the content I wanted to produce. In Accord, we found a great match

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.

Pros: They are focused on delivering a solution that meets your needs rather than pushing their idea of implementation. That's hugely refreshing in this market and very helpful for those of us who are building multi-disciplinary learning ecosystems.

Cons: I honestly have nothing negative to say - they are great, truly!

Recommendations to other buyers: Have a game plan in mind - they will help you configure the system so that is will expand with your needs.

Comments: I am thrilled with the purchase we've made in Accord LMS. I looked at a number of providers and found that either the cost or structure of the solution was unrealistic. Given that we are new to online learning, our use of the many functionalities will increase over time. The system has been easy to set up and the customer service superb. I highly recommend Accord LMS.

Pros: Cost Flexibility Client Service Responsiveness

Cons: This is not really a 'con'. You can customize the solution yourself if you are on a budget. Not a huge hill to climb, but it does take some patience.

Comments: Very recently went live with Accord LMS (June 1). Therefore, my review is somewhat premature as I may have more good things to say after having used the product long-term once I have become an expert user. For the moment, I can say that we are very pleased. The Accord LMS is so robust that we still have much to learn, but I'd say we would be hard pressed to fully utilize all of the features and functions. I am one of the administrators of the LMS and my setup and pre-go live activities were not difficult. We imported over 1,000 users and built our library of less than 100 courses within a few days. No hiccups or unanticipated issues. At this point, week two into our go-live I'm very happy. Accord is easy to use, support has been great (just utilizing them for how-to questions right now) and the system appears so robust that it should meet every demand we place on it. Thanks Accord Team - I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship! Ken.

Pros: Robust capabilities, ease of use, cost.

Cons: So far I have not found any. There must some somewhere!

Pros: We had been using an older system for many years. When we started working with Accord, we could not believe the ease-of-use and also the robust power of Accord. We are able to do so much more with this solution then we were ever able to do with our previous solution. I also really enjoy the role-based enrollment methodology. It makes so much more sense.

Cons: So far, we have not run into any issues. I do not have any complaints about the product.

Recommendations to other buyers: There is so much that the solution can do, but it might seem overwhelming at times. But just stick with it and you will realize the power and functionality of the LMS. It will really take your e-learning and training to a new level.

Excellent tool. We did a lot of research before choosing Accord LMS and are so glad we chose it.

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: We purchased Accord LMS to support and manage the training of staff on a large project in Latin America. Accord LMS was competitively priced and offered capabilities that other companies did not.

Pros: Accord offers a customizable LMS for an affordable price. They provide supportive, friendly customer service and remain interested in meeting your needs throughout the development process.

I am impressed with Accord's robust LMS

Pros: We are still in the implementation phase with Accord and the support has been top-notch. Accord offers many features at a very reasonable cost. The Accord system included everything we were looking for in the way of features such as branding and customization capability, ease of administration, certification tracking, ILT support, virtual classroom, extended enterprise capability, a strong compliance aspect, resource upload ease, a community aspect, gamification and so much more--right out of the box! After months of research, and several months of actually using the Accord system, I would highly recommend Accord to any company looking to implement a new Learning Management System.

Cons: So far there have been no dislikes. Both sales and support have been extremely responsive to our needs. We are a small company with rapid growth and needed a company that could keep up with our growth. Accord has been able to do that.

Recommendations to other buyers: Check out Accord if you are looking for the features I mentioned above. Dare to compare Accord's features and price to the big boys like Saba and Taleo.

I am very impressed with the robust Accord LMS

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!

Pros: AccordLMS provides all of the expected LMS capabilities. The installation and upgrade of this product is simple. The administration is easy, customization is good, and the customer service is excellent. The eCommerce piece is robust and the system allows for multiple portals sharing courses from master to child. The system allows for free access (such as for internal training) as well as purchased access (for external sales, either individual or subscription).

Cons: One client that I worked with had too many sub-folders for their courses, and this caused performance issues (this may have been addressed in latest release). Also, if you need detailed quiz reporting (down to the individual question and answer level) you must build your assessments with Articulate, as AccordLMS has custom code to extract their reporting details.

Recommendations to other buyers: A lot of Learning Management Systems are the same, what differentiates them is the customer service and reporting capabilities. The customer service at AccordLMS is outstanding. The reporting capabilities are great depending if you use the right tool to build assessments. Also, consider your eCommerce needs (if any). The AccordLMS Storefront is based on InterZoic's Revindex, which is great, but if you need vendor customization, this affects upgrade prices/processes.

The Accord provides detailed quiz reporting for ALL assessments that provide the information, not just those authored with Articulate. Some assessments, from other authoring tools, do not provide detailed quiz information which makes it impossible for the LMS to report it. Concerning sub-folders, our current version is supporting clients with over 10,000 courses and sub-folders with excellent performance.

Pros: I like that the LMS is customizable. We were able to use our own icons and graphics in the LMS "pages". I like that Matt Myers gave me individual attention for about an hour a week for 4 weeks at the beginning to help me set up our customized LMS site. I also like that Accord provides its users with a webinar every month or so to go over things with users and show new features. They don't just sign you up and forget about you. I like how we set up learning elements and courses. It is easy to use and learn and the customer support is responsive and resolves any issues in a timely manner.

Cons: The reports are ever evolving and still need some work. The help system needs some work also.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would highly recommend Accord LMS and its company.

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.

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.

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.

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.
