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

Pros
Combining everything together, our on-time completions have gone from the mid-sixty percentile to over 99% on-time completion.The most valuable features are the Playlists, Learning Assignment Tool, Earner Experience Platform, Machine Learning, and Reporting 2.0.What I like the most about Cornerstone is that it is agile. It has good built-in processes and the implementation is rapid.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.

It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for.The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability.The user interface is good and very easy to use.This product is leaps and bounds above the competition. Part of the reason is that it is built with modern technology. It has no legacy coding in it at all.It's actually a cloud-native solution and based on the community for development. It is a very good open architecture and able to interconnect with other systems. And it is very stable and very fast in terms of response.The solution is extremely stable.Performance and good usability are the two most valuable features of this solution.We have fewer systems, less manual data entry, and less processing.

Cons
The automated ticketing system for technical support often has a response time that is quite long, which is something that should be improved.In general, some of the portal pages have an outdated look and feel.In the next release, I would like to see a Hybrid architecture and to be able to customize the look and feel.In the next release, I would like to see improvement in the dashboards and reporting.

It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improvedThe UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive.The security console should be made less complex.It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored.Reporting systems should be improved. If you want to report it on paper, if you want something more BI oriented, more high level predictive or more data-driven, it should be improved.Setting up reports can be a bit tricky.It has missing functionalities. Specific countries, like Germany, didn't have the option to do payroll. Now we need to look for another product for HR.There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.This is a cost-effective solution.

Workday is an expensive solution.With a bigger budget, I would recommend SAP.
