The evaluation and selection process went very well. I wouldn't change any aspect of the process as it has resulted in a product easily integrated into our environment for the benefit of all employees, from from CEO to warehouse worker, from finance to marketing, and for every employee type we have. KnowBe4 is easy to use and highly beneficial.

The evaluation process the way it was was sufficient. I was able to check out a number of options, tests, interactive, games, videos and choose the ones that were most relevant for our staff. Wouldn't change the way we chose the product.

I think I would ask more questions of our Sales Rep. The one thing I was not too thrilled about was the SCORM compliant requirement of uploaded content. Our Sales Rep told us we could upload any kind of content and turn it into a training. I found out after purchase, that is not entirely true as there is no functionality to upload powerpoints as training content.

I am not sure I would change anything. I certainly would have gone with KnowBe4 alot sooner. Before them, we used our own home grown content and manually tracked. I wish we moved to KnowBe4 years ago and it has made a huge difference. We are completely happy with this product and don't plan on changing anything about it.

The evaluation process was simple, I don't think I would change it. I researched online for the leading companies, read reviews, and gathered information about what was offered (for instance, some will do USB drops in you parking lot, some will do AD integration, and others don't). KnowBe4 made the decision easy, they stood out as the clear leader for what we needed.
