    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

    Showpad Content

    Any person who is interested in understanding the level of engagement from a client needs Showpad. It is a must-have software if you have people within your organization that are customer-facing. If your role is primarily communicating with employees within your own organization, then this software might not be as useful to you. For those in sales, account management, or who needs to know if your recipient has seen your emails/content, this is a useful tool.

    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!

    Showpad Content

    • User-Friendly. The ability to easily customize to fit your needs
    • Delivering content easily and quickly, reducing cost for print, and out of date information
    • Reporting. Providing the analytical function to track what content has been utilized or not utilized and become more efficient in the type of information you share
    • Offline Use. The ability to be able to view content offline

    Cons

    Ceros

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

    Showpad Content

    • Version control is an issue. Would be nice to go back to previous versions of a file.
    • The in-app viewing experience feels a little rigid. Prefer to download the files before viewing.
    • The main landing page is a little more cluttered than I would like.

    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.

    I have not been involved with support from Showpad so I am not entirely sure. However, we have received some emails from our help desk about an outage and it seems like it didn't last very long so I would say that it was pretty effective support to that extent.

    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

    Showpad Content

    The only option our company used was cloud-based file-sharing services (Box, Dropbox, etc) and emails like Outlook or Gmail. Both options make it hard for version control and for ease of navigation. Generally, end-users had an easier time finding content on Showpad.

    Showpad Content

    • We are not limited by what physical catalogs and literature we get - we can send out any piece of literature to a customer.
    • All of our content is centralized in one place.
    • Our marketing department has the ability to view what content is shared the most and viewed the most, so they can focus on those items.
    • Gives our sales reps visibility into what our customers are looking at.
