The fast and scaleable way to onboard new team members

COVID-19 has taught us that chat and video are a productivity bottleneck. And a happiness drain.

Archbee helps your team communicate asynchronously. This makes you effective and remote-ready.
Internal Wiki and Knowledge Base

Selling to developers? Probably not the way you think.

Developers don't "jump" on demos or sales calls. Let them educate themselves on product and they'll sell the product for you internally.

We provide you with the tools to onboard and activate them in your product with no human interaction.
Developer and API Docs

Effortless content editing + collaboration

Knowledge is not just formatted text. Some concepts are better explained through specific blocks.

Unlock your team's expressive capabilities with: list, checklist, table, callout, minitask, file, image, video, map, multilanguage code editor, diagram, Mermaid.js, api endpoint, Swagger/Open API, GraphQL, changelog, HTML iframe
20+ Custom Blocks
Easy document collaboration with inline comments.

This is knowledge management on steroids to help your team learn to communicate asynchronously.

This is how you build an efficient, resilient & remote-ready team.
Inline Comments
We went far beyond the basic editing experience.

Archbee is a complete documentation workspace for your team!
