  • Client experience manager
  • User roles
  • Custom branding
  • Webhook
  • Resource lessons
  • PDF exporting
  • Learning library

Growth: The Growth plan is $1,250 per month and covers up to 200 learners. There is a $2,000 onboarding fee. In addition to all features of the Plus plan, the Growth plan includes:

  • Automation
  • Single sign-on
  • Application program interface (API)
  • Advanced learning library
  • Integrated screen recording

Enterprise: The Enterprise plan is for companies with over 200 learners. Pricing is not available for this plan, so you’ll have to contact Lessonly for a quote. The plan includes all features of the other three plans, plus custom integration and custom content.
