  • Claro
    « Claro is an amazing online authoring system unlike others we tried and the single sourcing, content management and publishing is some tasty icing on top. We chose this tool because it provides so many controls to manage our production lifecycle without compromising our ability to author and publish anything we can imagine. The support team is also super responsive. »
  • Articulate Storyline
    « For clients who want a desktop tool which has an accessible learning curve and lots of flexibility about the branding, layout, interactivity and quizzing options, Storyline is a good choice. Arguably its best feature isn’t the software at all - it’s the superb user community and resource bank which solves problems and speeds up development. »
  • gomo learning
