Whale overview

What is Whale?

Whale is a knowledge management software designed to help franchisees, managed service providers (MSPs), system companies, and real estate agencies create, maintain, and share training documentation including processes, policies, and procedures with employees. It provides a browser extension, which allows staff members to access learning content within existing business applications through plug-and-play integration.

The solution offers a WYSIWYG editor, which teams can utilize to record screens, create step-by-step video tutorials, customize content based on job function, department, or location, and store materials across playbooks, libraries, and cards. Administrators can set up an ownership system to monitor and review content, interlink documents using tags or color codes, and let subject matter experts update their knowledge base according to industry guidelines. Employees can also use a self-service portal to browse or search for learning content using filters specific to their skills, tags, and departments.

Whale facilitates integration with several technology providers and applications such as Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, Google Drive, Salesforce, ConnectWise, HubSpot, and more. It provides an insights dashboard, which lets managers analyze the team's performance and gain visibility into knowledge gaps and create assignments to improve specific user skills.

Easy and simple

Review Source: Capterra

We were able to onboard new colleagues much faster than before. They were very satisfied with our approach. By using the templates we create much more uniformity of our documents and the colleagues start documenting faster :) The reaction of the support is TOP!

Pros
Really bridges the training and knowledge with the different profiles of employees. Intuitiveness & user friendly Outperforming other onboard tools or training software.

Cons
It isn't completely customizable yet (brand colors or logo cant be changed atm)
