Slab, Inc.
It's perfect for us to update processes that we use daily at Curri. This is a very important piece of our business because being a start-up, things are always changing. I'd say it's pretty appropriate for all needs related to a knowledge base.

We have offices set around the world, and hiring new team members in certain countries makes it a bit difficult, especially now to fly out or fly in to help get them situated and fully trained. This really helps close the gaps in between the distance and training. Makes onboarding a heck of a lot easier.

Cons
Slab, Inc.
  • Sometimes the search doesn't want to pull up what I've entered, even though when I find what I'm looking for, it's named exactly what I was searching for.

  • The subject organization could use work! It's just jumbled and needs folders.
  • It's very cumbersome to have to click back and forth to subjects when you are within a task. I wish there was a larger side bar that could show ALL subjects, topics, and tasks in one glance with drop-down menus.

During the entire sales process, the Trainual team was great to work with. After the sale, their onboard process was top notch as well and was very quick to answer any questions and actually were open to customizing the platform to meet our specific needs. They have been great this entire time.

Slab, Inc.
Most of the systems I have used in the past that house knowledge feel clunky and difficult to navigate. They are not easily modified and are not easy to access when you are working directly with a customer. They do not feel linear and sometimes feel overwhelming when you are trying to learn new processes. Overall, I've never used a KB that I felt did a great job at housing the information I would need to refresh and train. Slab is easy to navigate, easy to use and overall very seamless in delivering information. I never feel overwhelmed and the simplicity in it's layout allows users to access information without feeling discouraged trying to locate it

  • This is our first time using anything like this!
  • Previously we just wrote task items in shared Google documents. It was the best of what we could do at the time, but this is a whole different world, and we love it! Being able to integrate quizzes and photos and interactive video is excellent!
