Ceros

Ceros is fantastic for companies who can afford it. It's not ideal for startups who don't have the budget for it. If your company or agency is interested in creating interactive content, but you don't have the skill sets in-house to develop or code them properly, Ceros is for you

Joomag

Joomag is an ideal solution for anyone seeking to create or publish a highly visual and interactive presentation. The possibilities are endless! You can create anything from a periodical, employee handbooks, sales materials, catalogs or brochures. Those looking to monetize will find it simple to do so and the subscription tool is a no brainer for lead capturing. The storage space is limited by plan so attention to your usage is essential.

Pros

Ceros

  • Easy to use and adopt user interface. If you know basic Photoshop, you can use this.
  • Encouraging roadmap - the product has gotten better every year. The company obviously listens to client feedback.
  • Smart, dedicated client team - always checking in, comes with new ideas, generally nice people. We always love our meetings with them!

Our CSMs have always been 100% and their support team typically responds within an hour or two. Their design/build team also worked with us on perfecting several experiences and are always mindful of how a project is going. One of their designers didn't really understand one of our requests and the project took more rounds of revisions than in previous projects, but they rectified the issue and the project came out well in the end. That outcome probably only happened in the time it did due to our CSM consistently checking in and getting feedback throughout the project - unfortunately, not something that happens enough with all our partners.

Outstanding support! The chat feature works great, I always get a fast response and they are relentless! Add to that the Joomag Academy, Blog, Case Studies, and White Papers, there is always an answer to a question and we've had some complicated ones over the years. You are never left wondering; they have a great customer communication system in place.

Alternatives Considered

Ceros

Ceros takes what would be difficult to accomplish in the Adobe suite of products and makes it easy. When it comes to user experience, user interface and customization options, Ceros is a much better alternative than Adobe. However, Adobe is the trusted name and some may be more comfortable with Adobe products
Daniel Berry | TrustRadius Reviewer

Joomag

We've looked at platforms like Issuu, ReadyMag, and FlipBuilder and none of them stack up to the total solution that Joomag offers. It's rich with features for branding, sales, tracking, conversion, and lead generation; it truly is a one of a kind, all in one solution for the digital publisher.
