  • Speed up onboarding: cut down the time taken to initiate new employees into your organization's processes and tools.
  • Interactive guides: centralize scattered knowledge into structured, easy-to-follow guides that employees can navigate at their pace.
  • Streamlined processes: eliminate the tediousness and time-wasting elements of traditional onboarding methods.


Ever felt the chaos of a new hire's first week? Manuals everywhere, training modules from the past decade, and a storm of questions. Current onboarding processes often drown new employees in scattered information and lengthy sessions. Over 60% of organizations claim their onboarding processes are outdated and inefficient (Harvard Business Review). With 40% of employees leaving within the first year due to poor onboarding experiences (source: Gallup), isn't it clear that a change is long overdue? Think about the hours spent introducing internal tools and policies. Now, imagine turning that time into minutes. Interactive guides can be that revolution.

The problem

Wasted time, overwhelmed employees.

Traditional onboarding methods involve tedious paper trails, outdated videos, and disconnected sessions. They not only overwhelm new employees but also result in significant productivity losses for the entire organization.

And here are the main challenges: consistency in training, time constraints, and ensuring all information is absorbed and understood.

To make it simple, let's take an example. Imagine you're a new hire. Your desk is loaded with binders, your inbox is overflowing with introductory emails, and you have a week's worth of seminars.

How much of this will you genuinely absorb? Without a doubt, disjointed onboarding results in disengaged employees.

The solution

Your answer is interactive guides.

Interactive product guides centralize and streamline the onboarding process. From introducing company processes to training on software tools, everything can be turned into step-by-step interactive guides. Employees can learn at their pace, ensuring they genuinely understand and can apply the knowledge.

The benefits

  • Better engagement: interactive guides engage employees, ensuring better retention of information. These aren't mere walkthroughs. Interactive guides, with their real-time engagement, ensure that every employee not only follows but also understands and remembers the content.
  • Enhanced consistency: every employee gets the same, standardized onboarding experience. No more worrying about certain trainers leaving out information or variations in training sessions. With interactive guides, every employee is on the same page.
  • Time-savings: turn hours of onboarding into concise, efficient sessions.Imagine turning a week of training into just a couple of days, or even hours. That's the power of interactive product guides.

Given these transformative advantages, isn't it time you adopted interactive product guides?
