Why Use Trainual Over Google Docs?


A perfectly organized set of Google Docs or Word Docs. Except, they would track exactly who has seen what and when.

You’d be able to add videos anywhere that needs more explanation.

You could add tests to make sure that what you’re saying is perfectly understood.

And they would be grouped intuitively into every unique role in your business so no one has access to more than they need or feels overwhelmed with job responsibilities.

Google Docs and MS Word don’t do that. Trainual does.

“We thought we could get away with Google Docs – turns out that’s a giant nightmare!”
Adam Founder, SEO Brothers

But Google Docs are free…

Yeah. And they are a great place to get started. If you’re just getting going as a solopreneur or have a small team of a few key players, just proactively documenting your operational how-tos in Google Docs is a good move.

But when you’re really gearing up for scale, there’s a point where you need to know who has access to what. And not only access, but who’s seen it and did they understand it?

Trainual comes into play when…

You need to consolidate your content into step-by-step processes and procedures that can be assigned to an individual and progress can be tracked and tested on within one system.

Plus, if you have been using Google Docs for some time, your Drive folders and files are likely pretty cluttered and scattered. It’s difficult for you or team members to find what you need when you need it. With Trainual, simply search by any keyword.

And you might also find that the best way to teach a new employee about your business and their role, is via video, GIFs, memes and more. All of that can easily be embedded in training modules within Trainual, not a Google Doc.
