    It [Ginger] is a perfect tool for daily work because it has allowed us to create and write better content with exceptional writing and excellent grammar. It has an MS Word add-on [and] our team has used it through a desktop application and mobile. It has proven to be an appropriate platform for all companies; the API has allowed us to deeply review all the grammar, and each document or HTML pages to correct any type of error.

    Pros

    Confluence

    • QUICK How-to Guides that can be generated and share instantly
    • One can subscribe to the pages and spaces and receive updates in the feed on their home page
    • Automatic Email notifications of new updates in the Confluence area
    • The platform integrates easily with other Atlassian platforms including third-party apps thus improving its reliability
    Binoy Shah | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Ginger

    • 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

    Confluence

    • Some of the components can be a little clunky to use and configure on pages.
    • I've run into a few issues where edited pages refuse to publish and work is either lost or time wasted copying and pasting to a new document that will publish.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Ginger

    • In the Company, we have worked for a year with the application and we have not found fault in it and we like everything that it allows us to do immediately and with great ease since its handling of spelling makes it very efficient, which wakes that our intelligence is better artificially.

    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.

    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.

    Overall, I am very satisfied with the initial implementation (and the subsequent upgrades and implementations made over the years).
    This product has never rose to the level of being an major issue at an executive level. It has quietly and valiantly done it's job for our company!

    I haven't use any other software that I could compare to AtlassianConfluence. The closest one would be Sharepoint, but it's a different beast. Sharepoint has more feature, but it's a lot harder to use and understand. Furthermore like many Microsoft solutions the UI is terrible and very difficult to understand sometimes. Atlassian Confluence is just plain easy to use.

    Have used Grammarly ealrier which is also a good tool available in market. If comparing the cost thing then i believe GInger is a bit costly [Premium/Buisness] version compare to Grammarly. However, In my opinion it is completely dependent on the end user that how comfortable they are while using a software/API like this. For me, Ginger is the first option to use for my learning/writing skills.

    Return on Investment

    Confluence

    • We've gone from folders and folders of Word documents and PDFs into a single system with a search feature to bring all of our data together and trackable
    • While onboarding took a bit longer for the company (to switch from a Word document centric mindset - to a web-based one), overall the company has embraced the features and power of Confluence within the working stack
    • However, as costs continue to climb for the Atlassian product, we are forced to continue our evaluation of the product - with replacing it a remote possibility if it begins to outprice its usefulness to us.
    Brandon Patton | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Ginger

    • Ginger is helpful for many of my students, it takes some of the stress off writing.
    • It also allows you to send off important emails with confidence.
    • Ginger is a great tool that can help you focus on content as opposed to structure.
