With Docebo, you only pay for learning as it happens.

Docebo considers a learner active once they access a course or a learning object within a 30-day cycle. We do not charge additional licensing fees and provide unlimited storage at no additional cost.

Docebo’s monthly active user model is particularly advantageous for:

  • When a company is going through a growth spurt and onboarding new hires
  • Compliance training to foresee spikes in LMS utilization and minimize overages
  • Scaling your learning business or customer education program. Because active users reset every month, you’re able to better understand how to scale, while controlling costs.

Start using Docebo in less than 90 days

It takes 12–18 months to implement other LMS providers. With Docebo, you’re up and running in 3 months or faster.

Why take a year when you can move quickly?

Docebo provides a social learning experience beyond gamification leaderboards and commenting on content

Docebo Discover, Coach & Share enables a full-scope social learning experience in which:

  • users can contribute their own content;
  • share it with their peers who will find it most helpful (thanks to Docebo’s Artificial Intelligence);
  • ask each other questions and start conversations; and,
  • curate a regularly-refreshed stream of content relative to their interests and skillsets to maximize engagement.

It is also a great way to identify subject-matter experts, who might just create content so good it could be reused in formal learning plans, enabling you to take full advantage of internal knowledge capital.

User provisioning that doesn’t limit your ability to scale

While Absorb LMS allows administrators to assign permissions, it doesn’t provide the granularity to help you scale learning programs efficiently.

This cuts deep in external or hybrid (internal + external) training use cases. You might want to delegate some admin functions beyond the main platform administrator, but need to control who can do what to specific content.

Docebo enables platform administrators to configure not only user settings, but also what they have permission to access or edit, making it a powerful option for external or hybrid use cases where you need to delegate permissions to specific users in the platform and what they have control over.

Custom reporting that tells you what’s working and what isn’t

Reporting is never one-size fits all. Different companies have different goals, and they need the data to tell them how close or how far away they are from achieving them.

Docebo’s Custom Reports make it easier to get your hands on the data, granularity and visualization you need to scale, understand every stage of your customers’ life cycle, and link learning to organizational performance. It’s all about making sure you know what’s working, what isn’t – and knowing how to fix it.

Your learning environment should be an extension of your brand

If you’re going to talk the talk about LMS customization, you’ve got to walk the walk.

At Docebo, we’ve always felt that brand went beyond logo and color palette, extending beyond the look of a platform, but also into the experience of being within it. That’s why Docebo made it possible to completely white-label the Docebo platform (yes, you can eliminate any mention of Docebo if you like – it’s OK, we get it.)

Docebo developed a drag-and-drop widget-based page and menu builder to ensure the limits of your imagination and creativity aren’t restricted by LMS functionality, but instead supply you with a blank, yet mighty canvas to create a learner experience guaranteed to keep your people and customers coming back for more.

Oh, and did we mention that the same experience extends to mobile learning too…
