Better Value Pricing February 2018


What is the pricing change?
We’re offering more for your money by switching our per-credential pricing to be per-recipient instead. That means you can issue as many certificates and badges to each of your individual participants as you’d like without having to pay more. We charge based on the number of unique recipients you issue to.

Why are you making a pricing change?
By charging per credential we were limiting how you were able to use badges and certificates. We want to support micro-credentialing and provide more freedom in how you use our platform.

Give me an example
Sure! Let’s say you’re on our smallest plan and had an allowance of 200 credentials per year. Previously you could only issue 200 certificates and badges. Now you may issue as many certificates or badges as you like to 200 unique people per year. You may issue those 200 recipients two badges/certificates (or more) giving you 400 credentials without having to upgrade your plan.

Public Wallets February 2018


Recipients of certificates and badges can now showcase their learning using our public view of their profile.

We’ll be adding more functionality to this in the future so that it’s easier to collect badges, certificates and blockchain credentials.

Together, Bridge and Accredible let you automatically create and send digital credentials to your Learners who complete Bridge Programs.

Learners have access to their Accredible credentials – and all of their functionality like printing a PDF copy, adding to their email signatures or sharing – entirely inside their Bridge experience.

All of the heavy lifting of creating credentials, with learner data is fully automated, saving you considerable time and money over traditional alternatives. You have complete control over the nuances of security and options and Accredible’s advanced account settings like whitelabelling, certificate design, and email settings on your Accredible account.

  • Your Bridge learners are able to share and interact with all of the credential features from inside their Bridge experience.
  • Easily view and edit your settings for each program with convenient links to your Accredible dashboard with admin SSO – your Bridge administrators log in once, and can easily open the necessary settings in Accredible.

Infrastructure Update November 2017


We’re always working hard to ensure that our service is a secure and performant as possible. In the past three months we’ve released over 100 updates to our product.

Most of our upgrades are like changing tires on a moving car: we rarely pull over to stop, because your credentials, your alumni tracking, and shares never stop. But on Sunday 12th November we performed an upgrade more like swapping out our engine (and adding in 4 turbochargers, plus a larger trunk). This update provides enhanced security and performance.

Measure Marketing Value October 2017


Updated Analytics Reporting

Digital credentials already offer more marketing value than traditional, paper based certificates, but with our latest update you can easily quantify and review the value you’ve received from issuing online.

Accredible is now able to show you the number of views your credentials are getting, how many clickthroughs to your website are generated, and what dollar value that is giving you – essentially for free!

Easier Reporting & Clearer Value

  • Options to export analytics reports for the last week, month, year, or all time, it’s easier to gauge your marketing impact over time.
  • See how many clicks your website has gained from your certificates and badges.
  • Estimate how much these clicks would have cost via paid marketing channels.
  • View the marketing value of your certificates and badges for all time.

Better Pricing August 2017


We’re excited to announce that we’re making Accredible cheaper. Instead of paying for every certificate or badge that you publish we’re offering annual plans that are predictable, stable and don’t restrict your usage.

Each pricing plan gives you a credit allowance each year, depending on how many credentials you need to issue – and, it works out cheaper than our old model. For example, if you’re issuing 5000 credentials per year that cost $4,400 on our old pricing model but just $2,040 on the new.

  • Enables you to view which credentials have been made public or private by your students.
  • Let’s you choose which custom attribute you’d like to search within.
  • Still makes it easy to quickly locate recipients.

Credential Layout Improvements August 2017

Our latest update brings improvements to these layouts:

  • Your branding is clearer on the credential.
  • It’s easier to see who the recipient of a credential and who the issuer of a credential is.
  • The sidebar has been redesigned to better communicate the actions a recipient should take.

Credential Directory Improvements August 2017


The verification directory serves three important roles for your organization:

  1. Provides an easy way for third parties to check whether an individual has a valid certification from your organization – ensuring credibility of your credential holders.
  2. Provides a way for employers or clients to locate qualified individuals.
  3. Showcases your alumni and the size of your certification program.

We’ve released an update with various bug fixes and improvements to the directory. The highlights are:

  • Now viewers can sort by any column that you display.
  • Each row shows one recipient and one credential, making it easier to read than before.
  • Search, pagination and the directory speed has been improved.

Learn more about the verification directory.

Multiple Brands August 2017


We’ve made it easier to work with multiple brands.

If you have more than one in-house brand which should show up on different credentials, an alternate brand is a convenient way for you to change that brand information everywhere it appears – allowing you to use the same certificate and email designs without any extra work.

Now you can:

  • Add new brands to represent different stakeholders.
  • Set a particular brand for a credential group.
  • Better represent your brand and the brand of your partners.

v1.20 – Team Member Permissions July 2017


To keep up with compliance, prevent mistakes and get the help you need it’s important to have the right team member permissions set up for your colleagues. We’ve made it easier and simpler to add team members and control what they’re able to do with your credentials.

Now you can:

  • Select which groups a team member has access to.
  • Restrict a colleague’s access to billing, designs, analytics, email, etc.
  • Set team members to ‘view only’ mode.

We’ve also added the ability to log in to more than one organization, enabling you to manage more than one brand and keep different departments’ credentials separate.
