6 Things you didn't know about Whale, the documentation and training software tool

1. Whale helps you unlock the next level of growth

Love your work ❤️. We mean it.

Imagine everyone loved their work. Imagine that teams flourished because they were productive. Imagine that everyone in the team was thriving because they communicated consistently and had the right information at the right time.

Imagine how much faster companies could scale because everyone was onboard and constantly learning and implementing.

This is what we believe it means to ‘love your work’. It isn’t just an airy-fairy unicorn-style pipedream. No. We believe that unlocking growth in business happens naturally when teams are engaged.

The future is entrepreneurship. Keep building. Love your work ❤️.

3. Whale helps entrepeneurs systemize their businesses

Systemizing your business is paramount for scaling effectively and ensuring operational excellence. It transforms chaotic, ad-hoc routines into a structured, repeatable framework, minimizing errors and inefficiencies while maximizing productivity.

This clarity and organization foster a consistent customer experience and empower your team, allowing them to focus on growth rather than getting bogged down by routine decision-making or problem-solving.

A well-systemized business not only accelerates the onboarding and training of new employees but also enhances the capability to sustain growth, adapt to changes quickly, and innovate, thereby securing a competitive edge in an ever-evolving market landscape.

User ratings about Whale.

Entrepreneurship isn’t for sissies. It’s hard work. 🥵

It’s hustle, getting investment, managing a team, and focusing on growth. IN BETWEEN dinner with the in-laws and taking the kids to school, never mind trying to fit in time to exercise and sleep.

When our co-founder Gary found himself unable to sleep because he was trying to put out a million fires, he knew something had to be done. It’s how Whale was born.

“If you keep solving the same problem, the problem isn’t the problem anymore, it’s that fact that you’re not using a system to solve it.”

Whale is a cloud-based platform that streamlines processes and offers training for various apps.

6. Whale has a Chrome Extension to make work easier

Does this sound familiar?

You’ll be working on something but then have to go to a different app to find the additional information you might need. On the way to look for that information, you answer an email and forget what you were looking for.

It’s called being human.

You can cut down on distractions and time spent looking for information by installing the Whale Chrome extension, which will simply bring information to you in the apps you’re working on. 

No time spent searching, no distractions.
