Comments: It is a complete LMS system that will meet the needs of most companies. The company also offers an entire suite for human performance management (recruiting, performance, succession, etc.), which integrate with each other well. We are able to deliver our learning effectively and efficiently. We are also able to report of user activity in several ways.

Pros: Cornerstone has redesigned the system with a modern look and feel. They have focused on the learner experience and leveraged machine learning to recommend new learning to users. They have added new and reworked existing admin tools, making day-to-day administration pleasant. The mobile app is functional and the video player is very nice. The system also seems to play well with most SCORM files that we have used.

Cons: Customer Support. Their Global Product Support team has been an issue for the four years that I have been working with them. Long wait times when calling in and online tickets can take far too long to get answered. They say they are always working on it, but not much has changed. Just recently it has actually been worse than ever before. The only good thing I can say is that they have added more self-help tools online.

Comments: I've been an administrator for Cornerstone (CSOD) for about 2 years now. We use the Learning and Connect modules and we have added Observation Checklists from the Performance module. I¿ve previously managed 5 other LMSs in both corporate and education settings. I can honestly say that CSOD is one of my favorites, however, it¿s not without frustrations at times. Pros:
-There¿s been little to no unscheduled downtime.
-They have a quarterly release schedule, which is packed with useful features and updates and then bug fixes/maintenance windows EOW.
-The LMS module works well with most SCORM compliant courses. An issue I struggled with while managing another competitor. We mainly use Articulate Storyline 1 & 2, but it also works well with tutorials that we¿ve purchased from third parties.
-Reporting is powerful and available real-time.
-The enrollment tools allow for a single enrollment or dynamic/scheduled enrollments.
-I really like the customization offered in the portal. Welcome and custom pages have just enough flexibility to allow for creativity, yet are still easy to use. There are also settings for the menu and branding, which allow you to create a unique experience for you audience.
-The system has played well with our nightly user feed from SAP.
-I manage several user roles that allow me to effective manage the rights of various users throughout the system.
-CSOD has revamping several areas of the system to give them a more modern look and feel.
-Additionally, they have a mobile app that just recently received an update that updated its UI.
-Their user conference is one of the best I've ever attended.
-Their Global Product Support is sub-par and has been ever since I started managing the system, despite what they call "growing pains" within their structure that they are supposed to be addressing. Not a very good excuse and it is tiring working with them at times.
-Although their mobile app is decent, they seem to introduce a new bug with every release and they only update the app quarterly, so my users have to live with the bug for 3 months before it is patched.
-Their integration with WebEx for vILT just broke last year and it took them 8-10 months to patch it.
-There overall message is that they are a tech company that is fun and nimble like Google or Facebook, however, with their fast growth, they feel like they are moving the direction of SAP and Oracle.
