I think [Atlassian] Confluence is an amazing option for larger companies however for a smaller team of less than 20 it might not be the best choice. It definitely helps our team stay connected while working remotely and we're able to stay on top of projects with ease.

It's definately a well suited tool which empwoered you with great writing skills and avoid grammar mistakes. It helps end user to re-phrase their sentence and give you lot of synonms options which helps user to show his professional skills and for students help them to learn new words on daily basis.

Shivam Saxena | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Confluence

  • Over the past 6 years the feature set has not significantly expanded
  • Integrations with 3rd party apps (DropBox, Google Drive, Slack) is either through 3rd party plugins or rudimentary at best
  • Frequent interface upgrades and complicated permissions settings makes getting new employees up to speed fiddly in some cases

  • Price might be high compared to similar competitors.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

Even if it's a small program, it uses a fair amount of memory resources.

This rating is specifically for Atlassian's self-help documentation on their website. Often times, it is not robust enough to cover a complex usage of one of their features. Frequently, you can find an answer on the web, but not from Atlassian. Instead, it is usually at a power user group elsewhere on the net.

Alternatives Considered

Confluence

[Atlassian] Confluence is backed by direct, and superior support from Atlassian versus their vendors. For end users, [Atlassian] Confluence provides way more options for layout and content, while also being simpler and easier to use. Most other tools also require a higher level of interaction with IT or global administrators. With confluence, both content creators and consumers can draft an consume content with a much smoother, more intuitive experience.
Jeff Tillett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ginger

Ginger is having widely acceptance due to there easy and effective add-ons for Desktop and Mobile Version (including Apple device). Ginger is better because of there better cost effective suitable plan pricing in premium services. Ginger is having various functionality to connect through the API with other system for better proofreading.

Return on Investment

Confluence

  • Confluence has increased cross-departmental visibility into content, activities, and projects
  • Confluence has also increased collaboration across teams
  • The lack of a workflow has created a wild west environment where stakeholders are confused of where to create and find various types of content

  • 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.
