Notes are great — when no one else needs to rely on them. Because Notion is optimized for personal use, it’s tough to scale as a true knowledge sharing solution as your company grows. Guru is optimized for both personal and org-wide usage. Keep private Cards with your task list, brainstorms, or favorite campaign examples and code snippets, while also sharing team, org-wide, or even public-facing knowledge with those who need it. Small teams, big teams, or teams of one: Guru works for all of them.
Plus, Guru’s robust and flexible setup and features give you control over your company’s knowledge, allowing you to easily reassign ownership as necessary, add and manage tags to make knowledge more discoverable, and delete or archive knowledge in bulk.
With Guru, you get flexibility, authority, and scalability, all in one package.
Guru’s browser extension and product integrations mean that knowledge lives where you work, saving you valuable time in searching for answers — especially in phone calls or live chats, where quick responses are required. Notion's note-taking software is simply another web portal that requires opening a new tab and logging in just to get started. With Guru, your knowledge comes along for the ride whether you’re editing text in Google Docs, or checking the notes in a GitHub repository.
When no one can take true ownership of the information in a note, it’s not going to be useful longterm. We know that it’s not enough just to have knowledge, you have to ensure that when other people need to use it, it’s correct and up-to-date. Guru’s verification engine ensures that knowledge is regularly checked and verified, updated, or archived. Note-taking systems have no checks and balances, leading to stale knowledge, distrust, and low org-wide usage.
Your knowledge solution should integrate with the tools and processes your team already has in place. Unlike Guru, Notion doesn’t offer an API. That makes it impossible to connect content authored in Notion directly to other systems your team relies on. Guru’s API and development network are here to support critical connectivity workflows as your company grows.

"Guru has let me spend hours more time closing my deals compared to trying to find all the info I need for my prospects."
Team communication platforms are key, especially for distributed or remote teams. While Notion’s integration only notifies you when content is edited, we built Guru’s Slack integration to help you actually access, create, share, and update knowledge without ever having to leave the chat window.
Make sure that what you’re putting in your knowledge base is useful. Guru’s analytics help you understand who’s reading what so you can make sure everyone who needs to is staying in the loop. Instead of just storing knowledge, Guru takes you one step further by making sure it’s actually being used by your team.
Light users are a simple way to open your knowledge base to scale organically based on every team member’s knowledge needs and experience. Once you have a core team creating knowledge in Guru, Light users get everyone on board for free. They can view general knowledge that is available to all users, but can’t create new content in Guru. Light users invite you to get all your employees into a single source of truth, so everyone knows exactly where to go to find reliable and consistent answers.
Guru integrates with many of the team collaboration tools you already have in your tech stack. That means you can create, access, and update knowledge without leaving Google Drive, Salesforce, Intercom, and more.
You shouldn’t have to leave what you’re doing to add an important piece of knowledge to your knowledge base. Guru’s Chrome extension allows you to easily capture information anywhere you’re learning and turn it into a bite-size Card, allowing you to instantly and painlessly update your single source of truth.
With Guru’s expert verification, everyone in your organization has access to the person who knows best. You'll never worry that your knowledge is out-of-date or inaccurate because Guru regularly prompts experts to check and verify, update, or archive the knowledge they own.
Don’t let a blank knowledge base hold you back. Use Guru to import knowledge you may have already captured in file sharing, task management, and project management tools like Confluence, Jira, Dropbox, and Google Docs to get started without interrupting business.
