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

Visually, by Rock Content

I would be less inclined to recommend Visually to a colleague now than I would have in the past. In the past, highly skilled freelance programmers and designers were more able to get matched with potential clients. Now, things have to go through Visually and creators cannot post their independent work and get matched up independently.

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!

  • It was easy to share things uploaded to visual.ly to other social media channels
  • There is an awesome amount of content on Visually

Cons

Ceros

  • A direct to consumer model
  • Price point is high, but understandably
Sierra Schubach | TrustRadius Reviewer

Visually, by Rock Content

  • There is a bias towards infographics (as opposed to 'real' data visualization)
  • It is not very clear the path between how people who need content get matched up or find creators
  • Interface was redone too often

Ceros 10.0
Based on 2 answers
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.

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

I would recommend other design studios that specialize in data visualization and infographics before visually for a few reasons:- small design studios have an emphasis on the creators (who is part of the studio), whereas Visually is more of a black box because you don't know who is creating your project- Portfolio is okay, but not great, there are many other studios with better looking portfoliosOne way that Visually is better is that it has an impressive client list and quicker turnaround and maybe more streamlined feedback loops.

Return on Investment

Ceros

  • Just started using, stay tuned for positive impact numbers!
Sierra Schubach | TrustRadius Reviewer

Visually, by Rock Content

  • Was helpful in attracting clients when I started doing data visualization work
  • Cost was minimal - it was free to upload and took little time
  • I have been unable to attract clients lately from visually, so ROI has gone to 0
