Northpass vs. Trainn >

The only Customer Education platform with a built-in video authoring tool:

Northpass is mainly geared towards easily uploading your existing course content and categorizing them for each access.

Trainn offers a built-in content authoring interface that lets you create training videos. From editing videos to adding AI voice-overs and subtitles, and publishing them in multiple languages, you can do it all in Trainn.

Build an Academy with zero developer favors:

Northpass might be worth a shot if you have a bunch of spare developers and time to spend with their support team. A Northpass customer remarks, “You cannot design your own Academy unless you code your own templates.”

With Trainn, you can set up a bespoke customer training Academy with localized courses, certifications, and analytics without typing a single line of code. Zero engineering dependencies. Period.

Northpass is a good system for those who are technical enough...

if you don’t have access to internal development resources, customization can be very challening…

Personalize the Academy experience based on user profiles:

You could personalize learning paths in Northpass only by becoming an enterprise customer.

Trainn lets you personalize the Academy based on the user’s profile. Courses relevant to a CSM might not be to a Sales Ops. Offer personalized learning experiences at scale without adding resource headcount.


Choose Northpass if you have a lot of patience

You cannot design your own Academy the way you want to without reaching out to their incredible support team. You need to submit a support ticket to categorize your course content, customize your home screen, and to even add captions to videos lessons.

Trainn's interface is modern and easier to customize, even for the most complex use cases. Everything from our pricing plan to help docs is easy to understand.

Trainn | Best Northpass Alternative

Northpass is less versatile than expected

You need to ask their Support team to enable features for you. I could not add captions to my video lessons on my own - which seems to be a pretty basic request.

Bonus reason: simple pricing that’s fair, not low

Northpass does not have transparent and fixed pricing. There is no free trial to experience the features first-hand.

On the other hand, Trainn is the most affordable tool, with a free account to test everything, with plans starting from $499.

Educating 12,000 customers through the Posist Academy feels easy
When we create a training video on Trainn, voice-overs, and narrations are included. When I use another software, I have to record the screen and then manually record my voice.
The dealbreaker was update videos on-the-go feature. When a new feature is out, you just update the slides on the video, push video live in 10 minutes, and have 12,000 customers educated in real-time.
