Trainn vs. Skilljar >

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

Skilljar is mainly geared towards content delivery and tech-stack integrations.

Trainn offers a robust content authoring interface that lets you create training videos. From automated voice-overs and subtitles, to publishing them in multiple languages — you don’t need to find another tool for content creation.


Build an Academy with zero developer favors:

Skilljar is worth the buck if you have a bunch of spare developers and time to spend.

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.

Skilljar is well suited for a basic customer education platform but…

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

Personalize the Academy experience based on user profiles:

Don't let a massive platform like Skilljar treat every customer of yours the same way.

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.


To Skilljar, it's still 2013

Times have changed, but Skilljar hasn't. According to Skilljar customers, you must know CSS to customize the look and feel of your Academy.

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.

Skilljar is good for organizing courses & monitoring analytics but...

not the easiest to use. I don't like how un-intuitive it is to use. Publishing courses can be confusing. Learning paths are limited.

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

Skilljar gives custom quotes upon request. 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.

The Key

Skilljar is an LMS suite built for traditional corporates. If you have a larger volume of customers to train, existing training content waiting to be distributed, and a team of developers to spare, then Skilljar is right for you.

Trainn is thoughtfully built for growing and scaling SaaS businesses to bring customer education ops under one roof. Trainn helps to offer the personal touch of a startup and the process efficiency of an enterprise.

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.
