What is most valuable?

Most valuable features of Grovo are creating your own trainings, and being able to upload your own stuff alongside their content.

How has it helped my organization?

It has put the power at the local level -- we aren’t pushing down, from corporate, what people should be training on. Local administrators can now decide that.

What needs improvement?

Grouping and assigning trainings. Also, would like another admin layer built into the product.

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

The other one was stagnant, boring, and we only got 2 30 min, pre packaged modules per month.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Skillshare, Target Internet, and The Knowledge Engineers.

What needs improvement?

Access and seamless integration with other learning management systems.

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

Not sure of day-to-day cost – contract is for $40,000.

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

Yes - wanted something new with shorter modules.

What other advice do I have?

Speak to someone on the technical side and not just the sales person. Have the people doing the set up on both sides meet prior to finalizing a contract. This will improve… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes – we evaluated both Skillsoft and Vodeclic.

What is most valuable?

I appreciate the flexibility that the new Instructor Led Training offers, and visual graphics for tracking users, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

We launched this platform recently so we are in the early stages, but it will definitely help us organize and track our internal training

What needs improvement?

I look forward to the capability of putting materials in folders by category...as currently the long list of modules is daunting.

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

I don't measure day-to-day internal input as a cost...it is a savings as we will be benefitting from sharing knowledge.

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

We previously used SharePoint, and the work processes were too cumbersome.

What other advice do I have?

It is affordable, and the support team is solid.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes...Silk Road and many others.
