My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Very good online option for flowcharts and other purposes; can be quite cost-effective, too, depending on how you use it.

Pros

Alma Suite

  • Great for task administration.
  • Customer service is friendly, pragmatic and always available.
  • Organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Creately

  • Creately provides the same experience that other similar tools (i.e. Visio) provides, but presents it in a much more colorful, unique manner. The colors are vibrant, and my clients have always been impressed with the quality and feel.
  • Creately provides a lot of creative control over how your images look. I can play with the opacity and color scheme, or use what they already provide.
  • Creately also allows me to create wireframes for clients to review, whether desktop or mobile. I can create simple, easy to understand frames and concepts in minutes - they're super professional looking and ready to share.
  • I like the pricing model. Right now I can pay month-to-month, or pay a one-time fee for a year. It's also less expensive than Visio, which is very nice.

Cons

Alma Suite

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.

Creately

  • The transition Creately made this year to their new non-Flash platform seems to almost function like a beta release in some instances.
  • Customer support sometimes takes a while to return and the responses are not always the best or most helpful. Follow up isn't great, either.

I haven't used Creately's support. I don't know what to rate this to be honest. If there was an "N/A," I'd use that. I like products where I don't have to do a lot of research or studying to learn how to use the software. Creately allows me to jump in and go.

Alternatives Considered

Alma Suite

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

Creately

In terms of pricing and functionality, Creately was the clear winner at the time, although the jury is still out on Creately's new version in terms of how simple it may be to use.

Return on Investment

Alma Suite

  • Positive: Internal Communication and Collaboration
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Creately

  • Creately is less expensive and dare I say more professional looking than Visio. It looks great at a fraction of the price.
  • Creately allows me to share ideas and processes with my clients. It shows that I understand their business processes, and increases their trust in my abilities to work with them.
