Firmwater is a cloud-based, SCORM compliant learning management system (LMS) that is specifically designed for training companies. It allows training vendors to organize, distribute, track and report on their content across client sites (multi-tenant platform). Administrators can quickly set up sites and give them the necessary course library access, branding, settings, and configuration. LMS administration is fast and easy as it can be done from a single clean and intuitive user interface.
Firmwater also enables users to design online stores to sell courses online. Clients can have multiple selling models including individual courses, and course bundles. The LMS is able to support single seat (B2C) and multiple seat (B2B) purchase scenarios.
Firmwater LMS has all the features of an LMS plus special features for training providers to sell and deliver online courses to large and small customers. Single sign-on (SSO), external LMS integration (host courses on Firmwater, deliver on the client’s platform), and certificate verification are just a few of the features that were specifically added with training vendors in mind.

My company has been with Firmwater since late 2015, and we could not be happier. Their customer service beats any company I've worked with in the past by leaps and bounds. They genuinly want your business to be successful, and go the extra mile to help us out and learn the software. Well worth the money, and unless prices go up some time in the future I think our relationship will last for a long time.
The software is user friendly for a non-skilled individual like myself to not only deliver educational content, but also on the backend for controlling content, managing users, and providing reports.
Not a durn thing so far :), super easy and I am learning new things all the time.

The Firmwater LMS product is incredibly intuitive and user friendly. We are able to easily keep track of our clients and specific users, and there was hardly a learning curve. We did multiple conference calls with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], our Firmwater representative, who gave priceless instruction and suggestions again and again to get us set up. And that's what really impresses me; the customer support.
The longest it has ever taken to receive a response from their support team is still less than one business day. They are quick to respond, knowledgeable about their product and the authoring tools (I primarily use Articulate Storyline).
It would have been infinitely more difficult to set up our site without their instruction, advice, and hard work. Their help has been invaluable
I don't have any outright complaints. If a user is experiencing issues with the trainings we put out it's sometimes because they're using outdated software. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been able to tell me if the user is on a mobile device and what browser and version they're running. It would be helpful if we could have that information.

The firmwater software does gets us by. The reporting feature is not ideal and I often question the accuracy of its data, and I feel as if I have no specified customer support manager.
Once I figured out what I needed to get done in it, it is relatively easy to use.
user interface appears outdated and reporting feature is lacking.

I've been intimately involved in the implementation/launch of the Firmwater LMS with our company. Firmwaters' level of communication has always been dependable and solution driven. Our company business model is slightly unconventional, with many custom needs. Firmwater has continually stepped up to the challenge and satisfactorily delivered solutions that has kept us moving forward. Before Firmwater, we encountered numerous tech support calls on a daily basis. Since the launch of the Firmwater LMS, our calls have virtually ceased.
The ease of use and reliability. Very little overhead with a learning curve that is palatable.
Our business model requires we maintain very detailed records of user results. Most rapid e-Learning publication tools do not offer the level of data we need to export. Firmwater has worked with us to ensure this critical information is captured from the third party software we are currently using. A quiz building engine that offers detailed reporting is something we eagerly await from Firmwater. We'll be the first on board as soon as this is available.

Thank you for choosing us!

Firmwater LMS allows us to offer our clients the unique ability have their very own, branded training portal. The ability to completely control the management of users, training content, reporting, training records, etc. are all very valuable features which has allowed us to win more contracts. Also, when things do go wrong, Firmwater LMS absolutely delivers on customer support.
The white-labeled training portal is a market differentiator for selling to our B2B clients.
Some of the standard features, such as free trial access and monthly subscriptions, are not available with Firmwater LMS. The feature of customizing training certificates is limited which can cause issues with regulatory requirements. Navigating and using the platform is not always user friendly and user mistakes can cause costly errors if you aren't careful. I don't care for having to rely on Firmwater staff to help me implement changes in my portal.
