    Can be updated anytime unlike PDFs, generates leads, a must have for sales, marketing and support.



    I used academy ocean to set up academy.serpstat.com, we planned it just as a hub for large educational content but it turned out to be an outstanding leadgen tool.

    Great tool! Using it for trial users education and customer conboarding. Super helpful, easy to edit and add new lessons.



    It's super easy to share knowledge, edit content, make quizes and collect emails. AcademyOcean has strong analytics and dashboards, so you can track progress by course for every user. Must have tool for SaaS. Great job, guys!

    - the cool idea of this platform,

    - the difficult and interesting Academy business model,

    - the fact that this product helps both marketers (providers) and their clients in such useful way.

    - Great opportunity for easy onboarding of new customers!

    - Brand new fancy content style!

    - Interactive customer self-service



    I suppose that every company would love to have interactive content for onboarding of new customers.

    It saves time for your Support Team, gives great opportunity for Marketing guys to make ads like 'We are a super cool company, look how we care about you! We have a special Academy for u'.

    Also, you will have useful information for new employees when they're just hired.

    Don't forget about reputation! Company with academy in the pocket is always a great choice.

    Anyway, when we are doing something like this for customers, we get a great feedback and it can't be bad.

    By the way, don't forget to have a cool writer for academy, because software is just a platform and the way how you show the content, but real help in information that you give ;)

    P.S. Good luck, boys. Happy to see your launch here!)

    Easy to use, brilliantly executed tool!



    Awesome looks super nice!

    Planfix is one of the first to get access to the capabilities of creating the Academies and we are very satisfied the results. We have already created six academies and plan to create more. Learning in this format is very popular with our users. It is really the unique format for learning our customers.

  • Pros: 

    Love the interactive format



    from my pov this format is much more interesting for marketers, because we can invite users/customers to something huge and not just another blog.
