I looked at Kajabi and Thinkific and Teachable and a variety of others, but they didn’t accomplish what I was looking for, they didn’t allow the customization and the experience standard that I wanted for my customers to be able to experience when they invest in my programs.

Hey College

BuddyBoss’s app product is such an innovation in the world of e-learning. Being able to offer students a mobile app, it’s not a perk really. It’s pretty vital these days for lots of reasons.

You don’t have to be a total tech genius to use it. But you have the flexibility to take it as far as you want to take it, which is something that’s really really important to us. And we’ve had fantastic feedback from our customers, who have straight away started using the app.
