Great for asset management and sharing content. Not ideal for Word docs and Excel format assets.

It's well suited to be your overall repository of content... especially diverse content. It's less useful for content-in-development as the version control is not what it could be for documents that are being collaborated on by multiple people. But once the thing is done, and you have a final version (at least for now) then Bynder's your best choice.

Pros

  • Provides instant access from anywhere with a web connection to content.
  • Enables development and use of large image repository that is well organized, promoting easy reuse and accessibility.
  • Accommodates near-real-time edits/changes; changes are reflected almost instantly, as soon as refreshed.
  • Adobe does a decent job of adding features and support, such as for new file formats (added PNG support, when previously only supported GIF and JPG).
  • User interface reminiscent of Microsoft Word, enabling fast customization.
  • Great way to add Cloud capabilities and content management to your workflow.
  • Easy to learn and use; learning curve minor.

  • User-friendly interface, clean and easy to navigate - this has helped with adoption and training so that staff feel empowered to use the portal.
  • Completely customizable filters - particularly helpful for locating specific photos quickly.
  • Storage - safe and secure web based storage, frees up tons of space on our org Google drive and server.

Cons

  • Widget customization is extremely challenging
  • Ability to create Custom Dashboard is missing
  • Portal support is inadequate

  • Bynder regularly adds or upgrades their system's functionality. The analytics tool is relatively new for them, so I imagine they'll be adding many more elements to that dashboard.

I'll continue to use this product for many years. Adobe is making it clear they are taking customer feedback seriously and there continues to be growing demand for Adobe CQ implementations. As a developer, I find that there is still lots of room in this platform to try new techniques and really keep our implementations up to par with the latest standards.

Usability

I personally feel that AEM is very intuitive to use from an authoring standpoint. The entire CMS was engineered around the author. Everything about AEM is geared to helping authors generate and maintain content. There are ways that tool tips can be customized so that any individual could simply hover over and be guided step by step on how to author web content

Implementation

Adobe Experience Manager8.7
Based on 2 answers
Depending on your individual needs, It is really quite simple to create an authoring experience for a website that looks really good. I have been part of many implementations and many teams and have seen many projects that were super successful and others that were not implemented well. AEM has room for a lot of flexibility in the implementation process compared to other CMS like SharePoint

Alternatives Considered

This is one of the best java based Web CMS solutions and Adobe has done extremely well to connect all possible integrations required for digital marketing. The rest of the other vendors are still struggling for a complete solution.

Bynder's interface won us over - it's clean, simple, and so easy to use. We knew our colleagues wouldn't adopt a program that felt clunky or old, so when we saw Bynder's portal, we knew it was the right choice.

  • Avoiding legal and regulatory obstacles by creating a more consistent content across the organization.
Tea Dejanovic profile photo
  • More polished and compelling national marketing pieces due to greater and better use of photos.
  • More polished and compelling regional marketing pieces due to regional staff members ability to access assets directly and select from full bank.
  • Greater efficiency when designing pieces (easy to share assets with external designers).
  • Increased use of marketing assets across regions due to sharability.
