One-third the price, with no setup fee

The most basic plan Northpass offers costs $10,000/year, and it only allows you to educate up to 100 learners. In addition, you'll need to pay extra to get trained on how to use the Northpass platform.

With AcademyOcean, even our most basic plan (available for $300/mo, or $2,700/year) gets you 1,000 spots for active learners. No additional payments!

Before getting started, every client participates in a free, personalized training session. Our specialist will show you how to use the AcademyOcean system and explain how it can help you and your coworkers get your tasks done. The specialist is also available to answer any questions.
Northpass offers their product with a minimum subscription length of one year.

With AcademyOcean, you don't have to pay on a yearly basis unless you want to. You can start with a monthly subscription and switch to a yearly plan at any point in the future (and save 25% by doing so).

Try risk-free

The AcademyOcean team is your trusted partner, starting when you request a demo and continuing through implementation and your continued use of the product.

Unlike Northpass, AcademyOcean offers a free trial version. This means that you can see for yourself how easy the platform is to use, get a feel for its benefits, and see how it can help you reach your goals — before making a financial commitment.

We tried our hardest to create a platform that makes training simple and engaging for your employees, clients, and partners, and we succeeded! Our clients rate AcademyOcean highly: according to G2 Crowd, we have a record-high ease-of-use in the industry (9.8/10), and our ease of admin is 9.6/10.

Need to personalize lesson content for different users? Easy!

Adaptive (dynamic) content

You can add tips to images that are a part of your lessons.

This allows you to provide a clear description of what's shown in a picture, helping your learners better and more quickly understand.

Tips on images (Hotspots)

Get the most out of your training system

Once a learner has completed all the courses in their current team, they will automatically be switched to another team.

With this feature, you can construct complete and personalized learning paths for each of your students.
AcademyOcean has been working with companies in Europe and the US since 2016. Our system is fully compliant with the security standards in the countries where these companies are located.

AcademyOcean also has a Security Center, where you can manage important security settings. In the Security Center, you can copy-protect content; restrict access by IP, domain, or device; protect user profiles against hackers; and much more.

Your security is a priority for us

For your convenience, we have created a feature that allows you to duplicate any of your content in a matter of clicks and synchronize content across all copies.

This means that you won't have to manually edit dozens of lessons every time you make changes. Use this feature when copying content, and any future changes you make to the original lesson will be synchronized to all copies of it.

Smart teams

AcademyOcean has a unique feature that isn't available in Northpass LMS

Content synchronization module

With the help of predefined variables (city, role, and more), you can set up your academy so that two different students will see the same lesson differently.

This could mean they see different photos, images, presentations, audio, or even whole paragraphs of text.

For example, support staff will see instructions related to their job and a training video about customer support, while sales staff will see their own instructions and videos on how to improve sales. All other course content will be the same.

Enough learners, no matter which plan you choose

When we created our pricing plans, we didn't want you to have to choose whether or not to educate certain potential learners.

Educate them all! Each plan contains 1,000 spots by default. You can always add more as needed.

We want as many employees of your company as possible to be able to use AcademyOcean to work effectively and improve their knowledge and skills.
