Avoid the hidden cost of using SAP Litmos!

There is one big question to answer before committing to SAP Litmos:

Where is your training content coming from?

This is the hidden cost that LMS providers don’t talk about. Going with a traditional LMS means having training designers in-house, buying expensive external modules and hiring consultants to create training.

Tribal Habits is powerful, yet easy to use training creation tool that allows anyone to create online training – eliminating this hidden cost!

"Tribal Habits gives us more control over our content in terms of developing and editing it. It’s much more responsive than other learning platforms we have used before, where you request changes and it takes a long time to be done. We can just make changes instantly now."

"Tribal Habits is unique in the market as it allowed us to rapidly capture and transfer organisational knowledge via text, imagery, video and interactive elements. It also shares tips from participants, meaning the knowledge captured increases as users complete topics!"


"Content creation is easy and fun on Tribal Habits; the system’s built-in structure ensures that content is organised in a manner that enables the final output to be exactly what’s needed. This gives me great confidence that my training will hit the mark."

MOQ Digital Logo

"It would have taken us up to a year to create the topics using a traditional e-learning authoring tool. With Tribal Habits we were delivering amazing training in three months, and we've estimated the cost has been about 25% of what it would have been had we gone with a traditional solution."

DT Global Logo

"Tribal Habits' online compliance library has been a game-changer for us. We now have total peace of mind that our people are safe and our brand and organisational reputation is protected. Delivering compliance training online has also saved us a significant amount of time, money and hassle."

Play Matters Logo

"Tribal Habits' video feedback on the topics we created is amazing - really useful suggestions and so easy to follow. People are already loving the training! The system is so easy to use, and the interactive elements have allowed us to make training a lot more engaging. We couldn't ask for anything more."
