"Like many, we originally built our own documentation portal in house. But as our team grew, it became a huge headache. With Archbee, everyone (even non-technicals) can create, update and share documentation with users or developers. It's like Notion — but purpose built for technical docs."
Greg Soltys, docuflow Product Manager at
"Archbee makes building our docs enjoyable and I'm a developer at core, so you know that's saying something. We use Archbee to create and share private documentation with a multitude of our clients in the DTC world."
Scott Wickberg, Owner & Creative Director
"Once we started scaling our team, documentation became very important. Our markdown-based solution in GitHub couldn't be handled by newer non-technical team members so we were looking for a modern solution for knowledge documentation. We found Archbee and we're super happy with its development."
Alex Circei, Founder & CEO
"The interface is clean and very easy to use. It has everything we would expect from a modern documentation platform built for teams that build software. We can build any type of documentation, from user guides to developer API references and sharing it couldn't be easier. Just hit publish!"
Delphine Marceau, Head of Customer Care

Archbee vs. Gitbook: What's right for me?

Great question! We think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer:

Both platforms allow you to write and publish documentation. Both give you landing pages, hosting, and helpful features like visitor authentication, versioning, and Github integration.

Compared to Gitbook, Archbee is more accessabile with the starting paid plans. When you hit the 5 users, additional members are $4 for Archbee; with Gitbook, every user after your first 5 is charged an additional $8 per month/user.

One thing to consider is that the content exported from Gitbook cannot be imported back to Gitbook (they mention this in the export option). You might want to consider this in the long run. We actually created a Gitbook import option for users that wanted to migrate to Archbee.

The alternative to get to content from Gitbook is to leverage Github. Once the content is in a repository, you can import it back in Archbee when you create a collection.

Archbee received the best usability award from G2 in the Wiki Software category, and our customers' testimonials back this up.

Editing experience. More than 20 custom blocks are available with Archbee editor. This gives you the flexibility to add various content types, including Embedding from apps like Loom, Airtable, Figma, Github Gist, Numeracy, Codepen, Trello, Typeform, Miro, Google Docs/Sheets/Slides, Mode Analytics, Lucidchart.

Authentication options. If you want to authorize visitor sessions using a JWT token, this option is available only in the Enterprise plans with Gitbook which requires custom pricing. With Archbee it starts at $400, which includes access to upcoming features like API Access, Content Reuse and Language Localisation.

Support. While a features are important, support is critical. Archbee has email and in-app support chat with a median response time around 50 minutes and we strive to answer any queries in 1 business day.
