Sunlight

Give your team access to courses, books and events worldwide

5.0/5
About
Sunlight is a platform for companies looking to grow a highly engaging learning culture at work by empowering your team to access any course, book, or event in the world.
Would you recommend this product?

As mentioned, the customer support is one of the best ones I have experienced in online products. They are friendly, fast and super professional. Before using Sunlight, it was a chaos for us to control the educational budget in our different teams using excel, but since we introduced it, it's one issue less we need to worry about.

Pros:

Simple, intuitive, I like the user interface and the amazing customer support.

Cons:

I would love to include old transactions into the system.

Excellent support system, very helpful team. I love the idea that we are independent to develop ourselves as well as out team’s independent to develop itself. Loads of value here.

Pros:

Easy, engaging and lovely interface. Great tracking and a greatly ambitious future resource plan. Very exciting!

Cons:

Needs more content but that’s exactly why they are here so I’m confident this is what the future brings.

More integration with Amazon for books - I don't know if it's possible, but a great feature would be if it pulled in product info from the URL. Also, if it remembered my addresses so I don't have to re-type.

Pros:

Great idea, encourages self improvement across my team, intuitive interface, the timeline is great for discovery, approvals are ace

Cons:

I'd love the request process to be a little more streamlines

Hi @whyteuk , really appreciate the review! We are indeed making improvements to pull in product features but an early functionality is already out. If you try to "request anything" on the left hand menu, you will see that sharing the URL now autocompletes some information (more on the way). Also, in order to avoid typing your address every time, add it to your profile. Just go to your profile -> settings -> address. This should avoid the hasle. Hope it helps :)

In my prev company, that's an issue, the manager has the budget, but he can't simply allocate it to the team for education/training since it's so hard to track and organize such stuff. So this for sure will help a lot of teams

Pros:

Easy to manage educational budget in resources you really want to attend.

Cons:

Needs to be more intuitive in some menus.

Thanks for the review Denise! Could you by any chance dive a bit deeper on the menu's you are getting lost in? Would love to make this simpler.

It's important that company would put people into the correct groups in Sunlight. This way you can browse items your co-workers in back-end ordered, instead of seeing all the things HR, marketing and other departments ordered.

Pros:

Easy to use Great support service

Cons:

There isn't any real issues as far as I could notice.

I like to use this service because that way I dont have to go through an HR process to pay for education/conferences

Pros:

Really good service & customer support UI is very nice too

Cons:

Maybe more fine-grained features

Highly recommended for companies that want to stay ahead with their personnel

Pros:

Very easy to use, love that you can have your own playlist and also checked what other has done to learn something by their playlist!

Cons:

None

I like stuff

Cannot wait to see where the solutions evolves and helps me achieve more as a professional

Pros:

I've been following team's effort and what they've created is really impressive.

Cons:

Content needs nurturing. But, I'm confident the team is working hard to be able to offer customers a richer variety of learning solutions

Founder of Chattermill

We've been using Sunlight for a few years now. Our employees love the ability to quickly pay for educational resources.

Pros:

- All your education spending in one place - Ability to create learning Playlists for different roles in your company

Cons:

- I still find that employees underuse their learning budget so potentially more can be done in terms of making sure people actually learn

Amazing idea!

Pros:

Most teams have budget already allocated for this but can't spend it.

Cons:

It'd be amazing if the entire checkout experience happened in-app like it does for certain vendors.
