Likelihood to Recommend

Cloudinary

Cloudinary handles pretty much anything you have related to images. From serving them up efficiently to adding transformations on the fly, there's really little this service doesn't do. Their pricing plans allow you to grow into the right levels and their website dashboards are very helpful. I would easily recommend this for all but the simplest of use cases.

Pros

Cloudinary

  • Cloudinary is the best in the market for photo and video transformations.
  • Cloudinary takes customer's requests for special features and implements them very quickly.

Salsify

  • Nearly instant publication of product content onto ecommerce platforms that support API connections. As the number of these connections grows, this will become more powerful.
  • Salsify's support team is usually very helpful, and always friendly. Development is constantly ongoing.
  • My favorite aspect of Salsify is the ability to quickly see what information is missing from a given product. Using readiness reports to identify gaps helps the whole team focus on what is important within their sphere of responsibility.
  • Image transformation is powerful. In the past, we had to rename, resize, crop, etc. to meet different expectations. Now, we just program the right transformations, hit a button, and Salsify does the heavy lifting.

Cons

Cloudinary

  • Their API does require URLs that can get quite lengthy and not always easy to parse on sight.
  • Documentation on how transformations work and what they actually do to your image could be clearer (what does force_strip actually mean?).
  • Although a free tier exists and is quite generous, should you need to acquire a premium plan for your needs the pricing at scale can climb quickly.

Salsify

  • Video syndication is challenging in that the native file formats take up storage and streaming options are not available to the end user.
  • Initial mapping of channels could be easier if a drag and drop format would be available rather than setting up custom formulas.
  • If catalogs could be exported to PDF format that would be a huge plus.

I am only giving it a 9 because they are working on streamlining the uploading process to make things easier on our end - once this is complete I would most likely give it a 10!

Alternatives Considered

Cloudinary

Cloudinary seemed to be the most sophisticated with the most documentation and platform support. Other solutions seemed to be a lot harder to implement, however, due to the good documentation and API samples on their GitHub we were able to implement it nicely. Additionally, they have a lot of really well-known brands using them like Wired, Sky News, and eBay which gave us a lot of confidence that this was a good robust solution to use and to help others with

We have not used alternatives. None seemed to have the feature set that Salsify offered.

Return on Investment

Cloudinary

  • Images are essential to our product and using Cloudinary has allowed us to serve them up in a cost-effective and efficient way. Not having to worry about your images frees you up to tackle the real challenges for your product.
Frank Ramirez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salsify

  • Saves our designers and product information specialists time by automating many of the functions they previously did manually.
  • Gives us speed-to-market with new product information syndication and updates.
  • Adoption in-house has taken longer than desired but eventually there was buy-in after people understood what it did.
