Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is a complete suite of solutions and features. Compared to other solutions which are more niche solutions, which may be as good as Cornerstone or even better in certain parts of it, like discerning user experience. You will not find another solution that has the same completeness of features in all different areas of learning.""What I like the most about Cornerstone is that it is agile. It has good built-in processes and the implementation is rapid.""The most valuable features are the Playlists, Learning Assignment Tool, Earner Experience Platform, Machine Learning, and Reporting 2.0.""Combining everything together, our on-time completions have gone from the mid-sixty percentile to over 99% on-time completion.""Stability and scalability are good. They have four releases every year of which learning is a big portion of that. They're constantly refining and defining and they're embedding a lot of new technology into it all the time.""The reporting feature is fantastic, and I also like the dynamic learning assignment feature. It is interactive and user-friendly. It is also highly stable, automated, and customizable."

Cons
"In the next release, I would like to see improvement in the dashboards and reporting.""In the next release, I would like to see a Hybrid architecture and to be able to customize the look and feel.""In general, some of the portal pages have an outdated look and feel.""The automated ticketing system for technical support often has a response time that is quite long, which is something that should be improved.""Could use more robust reporting or more flexibility and scalability around the reporting side.""Its dashboard and analytics must be improved. Currently, we get the data, but we don't get anything from the insightfulness perspective. Analytics is where it requires a lot of work. We definitely expect some good dashboard features, which are currently lacking in this solution. From a technical perspective, they need to open access to all HTML tags. It currently doesn't support many HTML tags, which makes it challenging to create HTML pages."

"Analytics is one area where this system really needs a large improvement because currently, it has only basic reporting features."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is a cost-effective solution.""I was not involved in the financial negotiation for our contract with this company, but in the past, I have seen the fees run between $10 USD and $11 USD per user.""Quality always comes at a cost. I would not rate it as expensive. It provides value for money."
