    Confluence

    It has a comment option on the page, where you can tag other teammates tagging them. it sends the mail notification. Comment at the page end is pretty good for referring to other stakeholders and future references of the topic on the page. Creating the highlights of the discussions, and meeting held points with highlighted tagging. Easy shortcuts such as to add a date just type "//". The interface is cool and has easy shortcuts for quick page making.

    Onbase is great for its intended purposes. Any documents we receive we are able to import them to Onbase and quickly access them for future use. Onbase gives the opportunity to provide as much detailed information as possible to the document should we need to pull it for purposes of litigation. We were also able to import data from other systems as a method of retaining previous owner records.

    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

    OnBase by Hyland

    • Houses documents for easy retrival.
    • Allows for simple document scanning and storage.
    • Has the ability to allow paperless document import so document do not have to scanned.
    • Makes the review and document sharing process easy.
    • Has security features that allow you to keep only the staff you want to view documents able to access them.

    Cons

    Confluence

    • Navigation. Similar to other Atlassian products, users have complained that aspects of Confluence are difficult to learn right away[.]
    • An issue that users can face when using Confluence is attempting to edit a document while someone else is editing. Although users can access the document and save it, they are unable to see the changes happening in [real-time] that other users are implementing until they refresh their page. Some users have also noted that this can result in loss of edits.
    • Another drawback of using Confluence is its specific organizational structure. All information is stored within one page or project, although the page is able to be broken up into sections, some users do not prefer this style. Users can use the ‘page tree’ on each page to organize the different elements of each project.
    Hari kapse | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OnBase by Hyland

    • The Administrator interface, while powerful, is antiquated and has so many options to chose from it can be overwhelming at times trying to find what you need in order to accomplish a task.
    • The Unity application is a work in progress and is missing out of some features that are much better in the thick client, such as scanning documents in at high volume. This has improved over time, though.
    • Hyland Onbase is a content management platform and, while it does handle ingestion and scanning processes, does require a 3rd party application to really complete the whole package. Hyland's Perceptive platform or Kofax Capture complement it greatly.

    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.

    You get out of something what you put into it. You reap what you sow! If an organization will spend time setting the solution up, dedicating staff to its development and ongoing support, and always keep the end-user in mind during development, you will have one of the most well-received solutions in your organization. So many organizations that I speak with stand up a solution but don't commit someone to its upkeep and development. It is vital that you have the staff to work within the solution on a daily basis.

    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.

    This rating is a compromise because I technically have 2 tiers of support.
    I go through a re-seller that I give a (10). I send an email and receive acknowledgment within minutes.
    For the few times we need to contact Hyland for assistance, it sometimes takes a couple of days to receive a response - and then the first tier might go back and forth a dozen times through email instead of initiating a phone call. And for an advanced issue, they take too long before they forward to an evangelist or someone more knowledgeable that is able to assist. I give that process an (8).

    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.
    Benoît Desroches | TrustRadius Reviewer

    We selected OnBase because Hyland had purchased the company who we were using previously. We migrated all of our documents and processing workloads to OnBase about 4 years ago and have been using the product since then. We're impressed by the capabilities of the program but are concerned with the increasing cost and how additional features or capabilities require an additional license. The support we have received from the vendor has been good and we feel the the product is meeting our current needs.

    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

    OnBase by Hyland

    • Efficiency and increased productivity by making drawings accessible to all engineers and plant personnel across the US and Canada, reduced printing costs, reduced shipping charges to send hard copies, reduced storage of drawings in flat files resulting in a paper free environment, manage renditions of drawings yet make only the latest approved revision available to engineers.
    • Need to scan hard copies, need to request only native digital copies and bring others into the digital era, need to organize existing files and prepare for importing. The turnover of project files from other groups is our greatest challenge as we do not always receive an index or files are named with long file names that are cumbersome.
