Archbee vs. our competitors

Documentation tools are not the same. See how Archbee stacks on against the competition.

What sets Archbee apart?


30+ custom blocks and out of box integrations

Using a generic knowledge base software leads to out-of-date content, limited use, and limited overall value. Our focus on essential features for software engineering, clean layout, and easy to use interfaces makes Archbee an easy alternative your team actually wants to use.


Tailored for developers and non-techies

We've built features that help your engineers thrive and document with pleasure. Architecture diagrams, Swagger, GraphQL, APIs, maps and more...

Faster is better

So why consider Archbee?

Company knowledge is siloed, and documentation is not always up to date.

Tools are poorly integrated, and very few companies succeed in having a 360-degree view of what other teams are doing while maintaining the customer-facing docs.

This is not a good way to increase efficiency and have happy customers. But how do you solve such a puzzle?

Adding another tool to the existing stack is not always the best approach, but picking the right one might save you in the long run.

Archbee is built as a unified platform for technical documentation, internal wiki, and asynchronous collaboration - all in one app that just works. It is a Content Management System and hosting platform for product, developer, and API docs with intuitive internal or external access for teams or collaborators.

Our mission is to help companies with a strong product culture build their docs sites, and startups or small-medium businesses get started with their internal wiki to reduce knowledge churn.

Your organization needs both technical and non-technical team members to get up and running quickly!

The Archbee alternatives can be split into two categories:

  • Developer-focused product docs as a service: GitBook, Readme
  • Internal docs/wikis: Confluence, Notion

Comparing the features needs to be done independently for each organization because it is based on the primary category you need: you might want a wiki (even if you can share it publicly) or a docs site on a custom domain.

We focus on engineering people's needs with custom blocks for code insertion, built-in diagrams, API docs, Swagger, GraphQL, GitHub, Slack, and other integrations out of the box. At the same time, non-techies enjoy the seamless editing experience and blazingly fast WYSIWYG editor with collaborative features.

With Archbee, you can build a beautiful product documentation site and host it on your custom domain in 5-minutes. No need to integrate an open-source site generator or manage the hosting.

Whenever you're looking for a new tool, you're most likely going to compare a bunch before you decide. Here's a brief comparison of Archbee with four other apps. This article results from what I learned from users who considered Archbee when searching for a docs tool or internal wikis.

This is the same information I would use while talking with potential customers, so it might as well be in the open. Hopefully, it's something that will help you pick the right software for your organization.
