Pros: Grovo is so simple and easy to use! I use it for work to train staff. Its a great tool to share with the team. It makes it easy for the class to learn and at the end of the lesson take a test for better understanding.

Cons: I think Grovo can work on their graphics. It seems they are going with really simple, but with a few more graphics I think the website would be nicer.

Overall: I was able to reach out to my team on work related ethics and policies!

Pros: Vendor is amazing to work with. Extremely collaborative from the customer success managers to the coders in IT. They want to know what we need so they can consider it internally from a coding perspective and the client success managers do absolutely everything they can... go above and beyond so much that they truly are an add to your team in L&D. I couldn't be happier. In addition, the video content is relevant, precise, to the point and effective. I've received GREAT feedback about the content. The platform is easy both to use and to administrate behind the scenes. Couldn't be much simpler!

Cons: There are a couple things with the platform I would change. Mainly they the search feature does not work for internally designed content, just the vendor's created content.

Recommendations to other buyers: You should consider their product and services. Everything they do is based on the new trend of micro-learning. Very applicable!

Pros: This product is easy to use and is a fantastic way to learn...the Micro learning approach is very useful along with the multiple platform approach. This makes learning the system quite easy. You can also pretest prior to learning the content. Overall, Grovo is quite good

Cons: We had difficulty uploading our own videos and having them work properly on the site...we're working through a few solutions..

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you try all aspects of this software...we're working hard to resolve issues...

Comments: Grovo is good for training on software, but if you are looking to upload your own proprietary training, I would avoid Grovo. Find a real LMS that will host your content without compressing it. We were sold on them as an LMS and the site never worked right. SCORMs always froze up and didn't report properly and video were compressed beyond what was legible on screen. The same content worked flawlessly on a Moodle site. Their customer service department was no help in fixing these issue and on several occasions told us that is just how it is and they ave no plans to fix it.

Vendor Response

by Grovo Learning on May 23, 2016

Hi Chris - we're sorry you've had this experience with Grovo. We've worked very hard to ensure that both our own proprietary training videos and uploaded videos function seamlessly. We've spoken recently to help you resolve the issues mentioned above, which I hope has been to your satisfaction. If you are still experiencing issues, please do reach out to your Client Success Manager. Thank you.

Comments: It is helpful to see the performance levels of staff members in terms of number of views, speed in which they completed the training, and overall score. This allows us to see their potential and interest from a different perspective compared with routine observation. Very importantly, it indicates their ability to read and interpret written material as well as verbal information, which helps us in future HR planning to understand people's natural aptitude. The assignments also encourage a team spirit with a healthy set of challenges towards self improvement, which shows the staff that management cares about their growth. With consistent use of the learning materials over a period of time, this may increase company loyalty and our staff commitment to represent the best interests of the company by strengthening their skills.

Pros: What I like best about Grovo is there approach to Mircrolearning. This approach makes learning take less of a toll on the user/learner. I also like that multiple platform approach. Content can be accessed from a desktop computer, laptop, or mobile device. Their learning meets you right where you are. You could be in the airport, doctor's office, or waiting on your child to finish practice. Regardless, you can access Grovo's platform and learn one task at a time. Right now I control our school's dashboard and I enjoy the fact that Grovo will allow its users to pre-test prior to learning content. Since each learner comes with their own background knowledge, you will be asked a set of questions prior to learning the content. Based on your responses, you will only need to view and learn what videos it realizes you are in need of. As educators, it is nice to see a company differentiating just as we are expected to.

Cons: The least I like about the vendor is the price. It is fairly costly for a business, school or organization.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you are well versed with it before making a judgement. Plus, software like Grovo is continuously improving. I was an independent user prior to my school's interest and Grovo's content and interface have improved greatly.

Microlearning is making a Macro difference at our firm.

Pros: Grovo is an innovative platform that delivers high quality content to workforces across the world through a simple to use interface designed to empower users to learning more effectively.

Cons: Grovo is solving a critical problem through microlearning. Just because the videos are short, doesn't mean you shouldn't be prepared to spend more time than you planned, not because you have to, but you will want to.

Recommendations to other buyers: You do not need to look any further for your LMS solution, you are in the right place, reach out to Tudor Saitoc in sales who will help you find how Grovo can work for your company.

Pros: The Customer Service we have received has been exemplary. They have followed up when we have had concerns or difficulties. We've been very pleased with their willingness to work with us.

Cons: It has a few glitches, such as the post chapter testing that we had difficulties with, but those were fixed quickly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Consider your audience. This would not be a tool I would use in a college environment, not because it isn't robust enough, but because it can be difficult if you are trying to move freely between chapters.

Pros: What I like most about Grovo is that it takes the responsibility of training every new hire off my plate. With Grovo, I can create the training in virtually any format, and it becomes the gift that keeps on giving, training new hire after new hire while I focus on other initiatives. Grovo is simple to use and has very helpful reporting tools built in. I don't have to micromanage my employees. I just set the due date, and a weekly email lets me know where everyone stands!

Cons: One thing Grovo does not have that other products do have is an award-based platform that allows users to earn badges and pendants. Not that it is necessary, but people like to see their accomplishments and work toward goals. Grovo doesn't provide a great incentive-based learning style.

Recommendations to other buyers: The choice of training platforms may come down to price and functionality. There are platforms out there with a lot more functionality and bells and whistles, but for the price, I didn't find anything that would compete. Grovo does everything I need it to and is simple to use.

Pros: I originally came across Grovo while I was looking for soft skills training to upload to the LMS that we were using at the time. I demoed Grovo's platform to check out their content library but quickly found that I much preferred Grovo's interface to that of our other LMS.

Cons: I have no complaints with Grovo. Keep up the good work.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't discount the value added by Grovo's videos when comparing their platform to other LMS options.

Pros: Grovo's LMS platform is very user-friendly for both the learner and the admin. Every Grovo employee I've interacted with has been honest, personable, and genuinely helpful.

Cons: When I was in the buying process, the salesperson was a bit pushy about closing before the end of the month. However, he never crossed the line to become bothersome, and in the end, I was very happy making the purchase when I did, as I was able to get my team learning right away.

Recommendations to other buyers: Demo as many products as you can; it's impossible to know how well an LMS will fit your needs unless you experience it firsthand.

Pros: The Grovo team seems to work together well. In my experience, sales and tech are in close contact. Grovo's platform is the most intuitive LMS that I've had the pleasure of working with.

Cons: I have no complaints with Grovo. Any issues (few and far between) are quickly addressed by our account manager.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ignore the fluff offered by other LMSs, determine exactly what you need from your platform, and find a product that executes on those features.
