Learning management and reporting are the most valuable features.

I've helped clients migrate from SABA, SumTotal, and a number of other platforms.

An example of how Cornerstone OnDemand’s learning module has improved the way my organization functions is that we can now better respond to audit requests regarding training. Previously, audit… more»

What needs improvement?

This product could have more features and ways to deliver training. Some of the learning objects, such as the external training form, are very rigid in how you can interact with them.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have no advice regarding pricing and licensing. I was not involved in that process.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

My organization previously used a different solution. We switched because our corporate headquarters said that we were going to switch.

What other advice do I have?

Be very thorough and get a consultant to come in and train you on how to use Cornerstone OnDemand. Be ready to dedicate at least one person to this project.

What needs improvement?

In terms of functionality, no areas for improvement come to mind. However, there is more room for improvement in the area of user interface redesign.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Be very clear about the vendor, and their pricing and licensing model. If something seems too good to be true, or cheap, it normally is. Cheaper is not always better.

I used SABA before at my previous employer. I implemented across 150 dealerships and was responsible for the system administration and support of these 150 dealerships.

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

Administration side is very user friendly and with lots of online help available

What needs improvement?

UI/UX can be improved, although CSoD is very responsive to customer's feedback and does implement many new features suggested by customers

What other advice do I have?

Best in class solution with frequent updates/new releases The quarterly release schedule is good in a way as it provides frequent new features and improvements, but it can be challenging to keep up with all those updates. My main recommendation would be to make sure to do lots of testing before making anything live to ensure it's configured and works as expected. Also, functional testing and UAT… more»
