Absorb Anywhere LMS (Extended Enterprise)

It has all when it comes to an EE, especially the look and feel that screams COOL for the end users of your company and your distributors, wholesalers, etc. I have to admit the first time I saw it, I was blown away and it just continues to impress. The front is crisp and clear, the back end is admin friendly and EE feature set is beyond robust. Accepts APIs and shopping cart.  Reporting, is solid. Social Learning is limited.

OLAT (Open Source)

Nothing wrong with Moodle mind you and a lot of people love it, but if you want to look at someone else, here is that someone else.  It is made for education/academia, although it states for others and corporate – which in this space, I disagree.
