It's easy to use, the support you receive from GE is great, you can use the platform in any way.

Pros: 1. It's a place to capture all of the information within our business, not matter what department you work in. 2. The gamification is exceptional and works so well for us. 3. It's completely brand-able and you can make it your own and bespoke to how you want it to look and feel.

Cons: There isn't much that I don't like about this software, I think it's great. The only thing we don't utilise right now is the Classroom Events, as this doesn't seem to work for us.

Overall: business engagement, making learning fun, people want to log on to gain XP and collect badges.

Great system, but lacks advanced functionality

Pros: Gamified with points, clean look, easy to use. Being able to use points in an online store has had a huge increase in traffic.

Cons: Needs due dates, need due dates, need due dates, need due dates :) This system was purchased before I became director, but I would have eliminated GE because of this lack of functionality.

Classroom management is clunky, a lot of effort in creating events and managing them. Also too many steps after the invite. Want to be able to skip the enroll process an just send out a cal invite with the even in one email.

Overall: a lot of engagement

Great company to work with. Very simple, easy to use software and great customer support.

Pros: Software is easy to use. Offers what we needed to get our company into the new age of gamification and LMS.

Cons: The platform has some shortcomings as far as features such as not being able to assign due dates to content, assignment profiles/assigning content, and not a robust back end ability for the type of content loaded to the platform. Links cannot be added to plans and granted credit for, etc.

If I can use it, it's got to be good

Comments: I am only in the early stages of setting up our LMS platform but by all accounts, being the Admin and the set up phase is the hardest part but it's been a great experience so far. Even creating the platform is fun and the gamification elements transfer into set up too, you can't help but play! I love how everyday it grows and develops in front of your eyes.

It's complicated to get the set up right but the more you put in, the more you get out of it. I am so excited about this platform and rolling it out to everyone.

My advice would be to give yourself plenty of time to play, that's where all your hard work pays off and comes to life.

A fantastic and intuitive LMS supported by friendly and passionate people.

Comments: A great site which gets better every week. Growth Engineering deliver an LMS which is easy to use and can deliver powerful results. All the tools to manage your learners development and performance and the gamification elements to keep your staff engaged.

The site will deliver great results with basic content and interaction, but the magic is delivered when you start getting creative with what the platform can do.
