Fantastic all rounder solution
Kommentare: Matrix LMS has replaced multiple prior sites & solutions with a single main site for all of our community digital learning, social & ecommerce needs - it has saved us significant person time in the extensive level of automation possible while also boosting new business models and product offers with its varied ecommerce and digital product features.
Vorteile: We have transitioned from another solution to Matrix LMS about 18 months ago as we wanted a feature rich and easy to use solution for our digital community - Matrix has exceeded all expectations from ease of installation, huge range of features, automation capability and exception customer support.
Nachteile: For those seeking high levels of accessibility functionality, Matrix LMS is a good solution with need to be careful as with any tech as to what content is loaded / designed to support accessibility.

Overall great product, not so admin friendly
Kommentare: As mentioned, overall the product is great and is doing what we need it to do, so far. It has been a long and slow process getting things off the ground as we are learning as we go since there are no user manuals even for the admin functions. There is still so much more that we want to do and believe MATRIX will be able to, it's just taking the time to figure out how to do it.
Vorteile: There are a lot of features that can be turned on/off. It seems to have everything we need to accomplish out goals for an LMS.
Nachteile: There could be better documentation, there are not user manuals at all. Searching for help is time consuming and may not always get exactly what you are looking for. You have to implement a lot of things to discover how they work. Wish the relationship was more of a partnership; we are on our own pretty much until we message for help and that can even take a while to get the response we need. Wish there was someone we could call to get direct answers.

Hi Donna, thank you for your feedback. We do have user manuals for all types of users: administrators, instructors, and learners. The guides can be found on our website https://www.matrixlms.com/info/resources#section2 or in the platform in the Help Center, under Getting started guides. I hope this helps and please let us know if you need assistance with something in particular.

Very good training portal
Kommentare: I use this training portal in my day to day work for an insurance broker that has to have over 2,000 sales staff fully trained. The portal allows me to easily create organisations, classes, lessons, modules and students and combine them all to create structured learning that is easy to track, easy to report on and all for an affordable monthly cost. The support forum is a great place to raise any issues and there's always someone available to answer any questions I have. It's not perfect and is still improving each month, but it allows me to do my job more efficiently and does a lot of heavy lifting that I would otherwise have to do with spreadsheets and time that I don't have.
Vorteile: Ease of use, customisable aspects.
Nachteile: Some issues embedding videos, but support forum is a big help with this.

Vorteile: Matrix LMS is a great entry into corporate learning platform approaches. For the type of LMS, there truly are a great variety of features. Automation also played a major role in our consideration of this product.
Nachteile: Had some difficulty in setting this up as there was a lack of documentation (the support forum seemed to be a good source of insight, however).

Good for starters, but has a long way to go...
Kommentare: Lots of storage space and content library for adding the same resources to multiple courses. Learner access constraints.
Vorteile: It's great for school use as long as instructors know how to use it. It's got all of the basic functions and great dynamic user access capabilities.
Nachteile: Configuration items are very non intuitive - it takes so long to figure out at what level do I need to visit the configurations to make changes to a course. The text editor is also limited, as are the media types available.

Terrific Flexibility, Affordable, but be prepared to invest learning time
Kommentare: Very Good!
Vorteile: Flexible pricing plans that are reasonable. Has terrific add on features and customization. The tech support is very responsive, thorough, and 24 hours on weekdays. Love that there is an App as a learner choice. Frequent updates enhance my administrator experience regularly.
Nachteile: 1) Training aids will get you started but you have to spend a great deal of time, and trial and error in learning to manage your LMS, build courses, etc. 2) I lost some completion data records where there should of been a hard stop warning that this could happen before I made the change. 3) There is no weekend tech support which I would likely use only occasionally. 4) I can't configure slides to move horizontally in a single slide click through fashion. Rather, I have to either load them individually or leave it as a vertical scroll through of the entire deck.

VERY USEFUL TOOL FOR MANY PURPOSSES
Kommentare: The experience as admin and teacher has been great. The experience of the students and users has been nice but always with an improvement comment of something that for now it cannot be adjusted. Great platform aldough, it has fullfilled most of the company´s requirements. Thank you.
Vorteile: Very easy to implement, easy understanding of the process to create content, courses, paths, etc. The platforms base is really easy to navigate (admin)
Nachteile: There are some features that should be editable or personalizable to provide the user a better experience navigating. There is no drag and drop content option or chance the location of widgets, menu, boxes etc. This may give another good experience to the user.

We've used this Portal for several years, and it is satisfactory for our needs.
Vorteile: We are familiar with this software. It does everything we need it to do. Our participants are able to find what they need.
Nachteile: It could be prettier and easier to navigate. It can get complicated to find what you're looking for, and the ease of enrolling participants is cumbersome - a mail merge or excel sheet upload would be extremely helpful. The Calendar is a total mess, and requires constant attention in order to update it.

Keeps getting better! Excellent support
- The support team is fantastic.
- The system is very easy to use.
- The dev team is constantly pushing out new features requested from the community and the feature set continues to grow!
- Given a lot of the new functionality being pushed out continually, certain bugs exist (as they do in most SaaS), but the team is always on it!
- There are various features you might expect to work one way, but sometimes they do not work as expected.
- The reporting seems robust, but is quite wonky and a lot of data you would expect to be captured is not.

Amazing functionality but support is not the best
Vorteile: We used Matrix in my previous job, functionality wise it is one of the best, you can do almost anything you need for you business.
Nachteile: Not the easiest software to use BUT when you get used to it it's great (like most software solutions) the support (at least in our region) was not the best, it took weeks sometimes to get mini bugs fixed.

Robust, Customizable LMS
Kommentare: It's been an overall positive experience. If given the option to purchase an LMS all over again, I would choose Matrix.
Vorteile: I love that Matrix is very customizable and is basically a blank slate for our needs. We can do nearly anything we need with it.
Nachteile: I don't love that it's not intuitive for everyone in the beginning. I've been using the system for two years and am the main point of contact at my 5000 person organization for the LMS and I still don't know how to use some of the features. A more organized, intuitive interface would be worth slightly more money.

A LSM that has it all - although sometimes you need to look for it
Kommentare: By far the most complex LMS while being "ready made" - so you can figure out how much customization you want to do, or just work with what is available. Love the community features. Still have to venture into badges and gamification, but that will come for sure.
Vorteile: The versatility and the amount of features and functionality.
Nachteile: Sometimes the settings aren't as intuitive as they could be, and it takes time and/or a chat with customer support (always quick and helpful, though!) to fine tune a course. I would appreciate a more robust user manual.

Great simple solution but not for developers
Kommentare: Simple administration of courses with tested results, the ability to handle a very large number of users simultaneously.
Vorteile: Initial features, integration options with woocommerce in wordpress. The api is a wonderful tool but could be a goldmine if properly documented or supported.
Nachteile: The API is poorly documented, can't get a log file from anyone @ matrix to even route the problem, seems as if there are no developers that can be reached for the offered api.

Great LMS with lots of functions and customizations.
Vorteile: Good software for the money, good GUI that is straightforward with where you are what you can do in the module. Ability to setup of tests, paths of learning and fun stuff a plus.
Nachteile: Can sometimes be difficult remembering what you can and can't do in certain roles and where you need to be to make changes. There needs to be a better way to manage and add content.

Overall an excellent product and seamless implementation.
Kommentare: Our go to market time frame was excellent when it came to launching the NetRefer Academy thanks to Matrix LMS.
Vorteile: The product is customisable, offers a number of features that you wouldn't find in other LMS platforms whilst at the same time keeping the costs low. Matrix are extremely fair in their pricing model and are responsive and helpful whenever support is needed.
Nachteile: Some features although present are limited such as the gamification options and the API service also lacks some methods when it comes to the ecommerce platform. However we understand, that like with any software it is always evolving and we look forward to seeing improvements in the next few versions.

A world of possibilities
Kommentare: I was able to dream further about my training programs than with other LMSs. I could see myself creating so many interesting paths and engaging users and students.
Vorteile: Matrix gives you almost any feature ever imagined for an online teacher. It gives you great resources for blended learning and I really appreciate its sophisticated design and brand image.
Nachteile: Lots of options can be a con too. You need to be a heavy user and eLearning pro to be able to really use the features. If you are inside an enterprise trying to start or improve Matrix can be a bit hard to understand.

Great all round system!
I have used a lot of systems throughout my career and I can finally say I have found a system that I am happy to recommend to others. The key points that I believe are most important to users are mentioned below:
- Easy to use for both the administrator and more importantly the user
- Looks modern, clean and neat
- No annoying, nasty glitches
- Compatible with a large range of other systems/programs
- The customer service and support is amazing. I have never had to wait longer than 2 hours for a response to a question (and that's with time zone differences!)
- Reasonable pricing with different plans available
- No lock in contracts
- Courses work great on a range of devices without having to make adjustments or changes for viewing. This includes mobiles, Ipads, mini Ipads and desktops.

Kommentare: Matrix LMS is a great platform for delivering on-line learning curriculum. I researched all of the options available and decided on Matrix for many reasons including the look and design of the platform (it has a social media feel to it), because of it's many functions, and because of the excellent price point. I have been able to put my leadership development program online for a fraction of the cost of other learning management programs. But most significantly and surprising to me, has been the response to questions posted in the support forum. The response to my questions has far exceeded my expectations. I use a lot of online tools and platforms in my work, and the responsiveness of the team at Matrix is second to none. I highly recommend this platform for many reasons.

Nachteile: 1. They don´t have enought emojis in the chat and for Generation Y and Z, that is very important. 2. Sometimes it gets difficult charge the updates in time.

Great and easy LMS
We use MATRIX LMS to provide peer-to-peer training. The online forums are a big asset to us since our coaches work remote and this is their way of connecting, sharing their experience and getting advice when they need it. Another thing is that the course is asynchronous, we really profit from this feature as it gives a chance to the learner to take the course anytime and anywhere.
MATRIX is a very simple system compared to other online platforms we used, more user-friendly, and the content is easier to deal with. The MATRIX support team has been very responsive, every time we had an issue, we sent it through the forum and we got an instant reply, and that makes us feel valued as customers.

Nachteile: It takes a while to adapt and know all the functionalities and benefits of the application, it is limited to perform manual backups of the content.
