As a part of your sales enablement strategy, you may have turned to the help of tools that assist across the many pieces of sales enablement. According to Salesforce’s research, sales teams use an average of 10 tools to close deals. 

Using so many different tools can be time-consuming and costly, so 94% of sales organizations aim to consolidate their tech stacks to boost their productivity. When it comes to sales content management, you might be considering Confluence, SharePoint, or Spekit. These platforms are perfect examples of tools that may look similar on the surface but are actually very distinct.

You need to choose a sales content management tool that fits all your team’s needs. But is Confluence, SharePoint, or Spekit that tool? Let’s dive in. 

What Are Confluence, SharePoint, and Spekit?

Whether to use Confluence, SharePoint, or Spekit depends greatly on what you want to accomplish. 

Confluence and SharePoint fall into strictly the knowledge management and storage categories. You can create, edit, and store knowledge and content within these solutions. Spekit, by contrast, allows you to create and store knowledge AND enable your team with that knowledge, in whatever tool or workflow they're in.

This is the biggest difference between a traditional CMS-type platform and Spekit's just-in-time enablement platform. Let's explore all the differences further below.


Spekit is a sales enablement tool that provides users with a one-stop shop for all their sales enablement needs, from sales content management to sales training. Their just-in-time learning delivers bite-sized bits of training, content, and answers wherever your sales team is working - without disrupting their productivity.

Instead of relying on tedious, time-consuming training, Spekit surfaces microlearning content embedded into the applications they use every day, helping them to improve their selling while keeping them in the zone.

You’ll also get a centralized hub for all your sales content and collateral, whether it be an internal playbook or an external case study. And, with real-time performance data on sales content analytics, you can optimize everything from your onboarding to your lead-generation tactics, improving employee retention, customer acquisition, and revenue enablement.


Confluence, owned by Atlassian, is a collaboration tool and digital workplace where teams can create, manage, and work on different types of content together.

With Whiteboards, you can share an idea-generation space, while Pages give you a place to refine those ideas with the help of generative AI. Databases and Spaces provide you with a location to organize and share your documents, ensuring connections with all those who need access to your plans and projects.


SharePoint is a Microsoft product that functions as a content management system (CMS). It helps companies with sales collateral management and sales content management. Their service provides users with a secure place to store documents and information. 

From there, users can create websites to share these documents and data with other team members, stakeholders, and customers. These websites provide users with a portal to a location for collaboration, allowing teams to share and optimize content in one place. 

Confluence vs SharePoint vs Spekit: Key features

If you're here, you're likely evaluating a place to store and manage your content, knowledge, training, and collateral.

For the greater part of the last decade, you might have purchased one solution for content storage, another for training, another for enabling your team to use that content, and the list goes on.

The end result is a proliferation of tools, a massive tech expense, an overlap in feature sets, and confusion for your sales reps on where to go for what.

The future of content management aims to simplify that with solutions like Spekit, which provides a centralized location for your content and the ability to enable your team when and where they need it.

To better understand these differences, let's look at Confluence, SharePoint, and Spekit’s key features to help you determine which one best suits your usecase.
