The SET Safety LMS is comprehensive and versatile. Their level of customer service and support has been impressive. They are very responsive to all our questions and requests, including requests to customize features (for example, they helped us create a custom online new hire form that helped streamline our onboarding). There are also many features that have helped us improve our processes... we now build courses in-house and host them in this system; we assign and track course completions through the training matrix; we can assign access to training reports for management to better support their teams; and the list goes on. Thanks, SET Safety!

Wonderful company & top notch software! SET Safety's software has enabled my company to transition our on-boarding and orientation processes to being entirely online. It was low-stress, cost effective, and most of all user friendly. With any new software there is a slight learning curve but this was a non-issue thanks to their fantastic technical support. My overall experience with SET Safety has been overwhelmingly positive.
