Brainshark

I love what Brainshark does for me and how easy it is to train someone else to use it. Most people are familiar with PowerPoint and that makes and easy start that can be enhanced with animation, voice over and background music. You can also upload videos, SCORM compliant classes and more to make an easy to use system to present training and education. I have reviewed a number of other programs, and all seem to have the same weaknesses in reporting. Brainshark does what I need without a lot of difficult training.

Postwire

Postwire is best used in any type of situation where you're trying to deliver data sheets, content or videos to customer or clients in one please. Instead of sending multiple emails with a lot of stuff attached, this is a great place to store it. It looks professional and often times, the client appreciates not having to look through all of their emails.

Pros

Brainshark

  • Brainshark is a very user-friendly tool that can be learned in a very short period of time; which was extremely valuable as there was only one experienced Brainshark author in our company.
  • Brainshark is a great way to communicate to a global audience. Our company has expanded their global footprint and often the only cost effective way to communicate or train in different time zones and remote locations is using tools like Brainshark.
  • Brainshark provides us a hosting platform accessible across the globe where none exists today in our company.

Cons

Brainshark

  • Brainshark has addressed a number of feature enhancements over the past two years...it really performs at a high level on a consistent basis...
  • Ocassionally we run into a large video file >500mb that we have to address directly with support but it does not happen very often...

Postwire

  • Enough people don't know about Postwire, and I think that because of that, prospective clients often disregard these links as spam.

For the niche it fills in the content we produce, there aren't many alternatives. We want something a non-technical, non-design user can use to quickly create content that is distributable to an external audience. I'm not aware of a tool that does that and offers the same features.

Unfortunately, the decision to renew does not fall on me. However, I have told the decision maker that I believe that we utilized Postwire incorrectly when we started. I believe that rather than sending links to our Postwire pages to prospective clients in our introduction email, they would be better suited to send after connecting and agreeing to send them additional information. That way, you can explain that it will be in the format of a Postwire link due to it's ease of use.

We've found a few glitches and needed some branding updated. Each time we've called, they were super responsive and cared about my issue as much as I did! They've even helped me (and another vendor) figure out how to have this other outside software integrate with theirs to achieve an even greater presentation. I'm super impressed with their Customer Service people.

The training is easy to use. You can take as little or as much as you need. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. There is a variety of training you can take. There are mini lessons, courses, and webinars. The folks at Brainshark truly want to help you have the best presentation possible.

Alternatives Considered

Brainshark

There are a lot of sites that allow you to host/share content in the loud. What won for me was their tracking, analytics, and reporting. At the time there was nobody even close to Brainshark and I have not seen anything since that would make me want to switch. I look forward to many years working with them.

Postwire

Clearside has less features and is very simple. It's convenient because it comes free with Sales Navigator. There is limited functionality and you can only have a certain number of different clear slides accessible at once. There is also a lot of other random LinkedIn content that shows up on ClearSlide, but I'm not a fan. I prefer paying with Postwire over free with LinkedIn.
