We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.

Opal

I honestly cannot recommend this tool enough. Opal is such a valuable tool for brand content creators and there is nothing like it available. If you're serious about content marketing and have a need to find ways to collaborate, plan and provide more visibility among teams, then Opal really is the only way to go. One more thing that's not being mentioned: The tool is simply amazing but it's only as amazing is the team behind the tool. Their customer support and willingness to quickly be in touch when needed is a key feature within itself. Seriously, such a good team of people.

Pros

Avaza

  • Avaza is great for project management. I use it to organize client roadmaps by task and deadline. You can also easily time yourself for specific tasks.

Opal

  • Content planning: you can look at one asset and see how it is being used across multiple channels by multiple teams.
  • Content collaboration: it is really easy to see what other people and teams are contributing to an asset, or how they are using it. We can also duplicate content that was created by another team to use as a starting point in our own content collaboration.
  • High level/big picture overview: Opal allows us to see content that is being created, planned and scheduled very easily; it goes beyond social content (which we can also see in Sprinklr) to show us content created across multiple channels.

Cons

Avaza

  • More introduction to the features provided
  • More detail on how to work with the day/week functions for time logging
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Opal

  • No publishing capabilities, for the most part.
  • No analytics tie-ins.
  • Rather pricey.
  • Requires someone to really manage the structure in order to keep the tool organized and use it effectively. When this is done right, though, it's worthwhile.

Alternatives Considered

Avaza

Avaza's time tracking capabilities are much more detailed than Upwork's. Upwork focuses on simplicity, using a simple on/off button and a spot for taking notes about each project, but Avaza gives you more to work with, allowing you to add detailed notes and specify tasks.

You get for what you paid for. Opal has more features

Return on Investment

Avaza

  • Avaza helps keep us organized, and helps us provide accurate estimates for existing and prospective clients.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Opal

  • Opal allows for more discipline in marketing as teams are better aligned on messaging and big moments.
  • Opal cuts down on communication breakdowns and mistakes, which in the end leads to more happy customers.
  • I think Opal provides the team with more confidence as everyone is on the same page. With everything in one place rather than communications being lost in emails, etc., everyone is more efficient and can work knowing that there is one source of truth.
