Simbi vs. RazKids >

Is it easy to switch to Simbi from another reading program?

Absolutely!  Getting started with Simbi is a breeze. We offer fluency passages for each grade level to benchmark reading levels. Our literacy experts carefully level each book according to Fountas & Pinell’s text descriptions, as well as Adrienne Gear’s Gear Levels.

We have a helpful Simbi Reading Levels Correlation Chart to help you switch from many other reading programs!

Do you offer a school, district, or organizational account?

We have a solution for every organization – no matter the size of your team! Our Simbi for Organizations accounts help bring Simbi Premium to your whole community. We also provide customized professional development. If you’d like to get more information or a quote, set up a demo with our team.

Do you offer any support or training?

We want you to take advantage of Simbi fully. That’s why our helpful guides, live chat, on-demand webinars, and email support are included for free with every account! For those that prefer a live training experience, our Simbi for Organizations accounts have you covered! Book a demo to get started.

Can I get a receipt or invoice for a purchase order?
Teachers who are looking to expense their Simbi Premium subscription through their school may contact hello@simbi.io to request a receipt or a copy of their invoice for a purchase order. If you require special notes on the receipt, please let us know.
How can I get added to my organization’s Simbi Premium plan?
If your school or district already has a Simbi for Organizations plan, please contact your organization’s administrator and ask them to allocate a Simbi Premium plan license to your account. Unsure about who your organization’s administrator is or are looking to confirm that your organization has purchased Simbi Premium plans? Please email hello@simbi.io for further assistance.
