Airtable

Good for replacing administrative spreadsheets, creating resource assignment and calendars, planning activities, creating on the fly data stores, outputting simple mobile data entry forms. Dealing with mobile staff needing to enter simple data quickly or with managers and officers who need to see real-time snapshots of information. When dealing with smaller data sets and not requiring blocks, then for a non-profit it is useful to have the free workspaces where everyone can fully collaborate and update records.Less good for complex financial work you should stick with Excel or your finance system. If you have a very large number of records and need many people to be able to update records then you need to consider the costs (however most off the shelf products you will be looking at to do your specific tasks will probably cost more when you evaluate them).

Ginger

Ginger is quite helpful as it will treat you like a 10th standard student who is working an assignment with effective spelling and sentence structure assistance. It is very helpful, effective and on-demand response is very commendable. It is saves time and energy and can actually reduce the workday stress especially for editors, copy writers and email marketers.

Pros

  • Great user experience and minimal learning curve. It wasn't until I became aware of Airtable that we found a solution that allows us to implement the best features of a collaborative RDBMS with our staff who don't have any training. I had previously used Zoho Creator and found that it was difficult to onboard new users because of a steeper learning curve.
  • Easy to share views and invite contributions via forms.
  • Blocks add significant functionality that would be hard to custom build.

  • Sentence Structuring: Ginger helps to choose the right words following the immediate initial word so that you can easily fill in your thoughts for the majority of your audience to easily understand.
  • Spelling Correction: Sometimes we get too busy with lots of words and can forget to check up the spelling very well to avoid turning off our readers. Here, Ginger does the miracle of persuasively inviting you over to ensure you correct that wrong spelling.
  • Omni-channel Help: Ginger does check up on almost every editor platform you ever use on your system especially when you include the chrome extension. This way, you most likely will not have to worry about missing the right word.

Cons

  • It would be great to have multi-tiered selection options. So if I check a box-like, "Does this need social support?" I could then pick from a multi-select drop-down based on the choice.
  • It would be good if we could have a kanban view built off a selection from a multi-select since some projects might be part of multiple strategic initiatives.
  • It would be cool if forms could have some basic if/then functionality. As it is, we need to create different forms for different media requests that share 75% of the same data.

  • Ginger should allow users to use the Microsoft option for filling in a missing character, rather than insisting I must use its provision over another.
  • The prompt to go premium should either be removed or just kept at the edge of the computer screen so that it does not become troublesome. Once people feel uncomfortable with the constant pop-ups, they will just uninstall and forget about it.
  • Sometimes it is confusing to know where to click when returning the edited content after using Ginger editor platform on-demand. It would help to make the button look bold and a fancy color to attract users easily.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

Airtable is much more user-friendly and easy to navigate and update than Confluence. We still use Confluence as a wiki, but Airtable is used for all our day to day management.

I used Grammarly before I came across Ginger and currently am still using Ginger. I started using it because I felt more comfortable with it over it's competitors. The sentence rephrase platform was smarter and graphically appealing to me. If I had to make a choice again between Ginger and other platforms, I would still choose this smart, helpful English Lecturer again and again.

Return on Investment

  • Airtable has helped us totally automate our complimentary pass system, saving printing costs and staff time.
  • Airtable has helped us to prototype systems and have them go live in minutes or hours.

  • High Productivity: When it was person-based content monitoring, we always had one or two words that could have been changed to improve content quality. But now, Ginger persuasive assistance is really helping our editorial team to maintain time, keep their work neat and typo or error-free.
  • On-demand Response and Time management: In the recent years and following the high demand of client queries to be answered at the shortest time and also regarding email communication as the most corporate appropriate approach, the crafting of these emails requires timely and effective assistance. Ginger has always been doing this best. This gives us a good strategic value in our B2C platform and editorial responses.
  • Employee Development: Ginger is like a personal lecturer and when you find this product in regions like ours (Asia) it is really helpful to improve the employee's grammatical ability by helping them to get used to the right words. When our colleagues (Editors) started using this product, it actually helped to improve their productivity and also their personal communication abilities.
