Very good online option for flowcharts and other purposes; can be quite cost-effective, too, depending on how you use it.

Google Keep

As a Customer Experience Trainer, I recommend that all the new members utilize Google Keep for better organization. It also helps with productivity, as our team members are able to write common responses that they may use for common situations. This allows them to easily copy and paste it into their email or live response instead of typing the same response over and over again. Though this tool is great for collaboration, I wouldn't recommend using it for larger projects. In that case, I would recommend Google Docs.

Pros

Creately

  • Creately provides the same experience that other similar tools (i.e. Visio) provides, but presents it in a much more colorful, unique manner. The colors are vibrant, and my clients have always been impressed with the quality and feel.
  • Creately provides a lot of creative control over how your images look. I can play with the opacity and color scheme, or use what they already provide.
  • Creately also allows me to create wireframes for clients to review, whether desktop or mobile. I can create simple, easy to understand frames and concepts in minutes - they're super professional looking and ready to share.
  • I like the pricing model. Right now I can pay month-to-month, or pay a one-time fee for a year. It's also less expensive than Visio, which is very nice.

  • Easy to organize and color coordinate.
  • Allows for an associated image to be connected with the note.
  • Alarms set for reminders.
  • Ability to add others to the note to share and collaborate.

Cons

Creately

  • The transition Creately made this year to their new non-Flash platform seems to almost function like a beta release in some instances.
  • Customer support sometimes takes a while to return and the responses are not always the best or most helpful. Follow up isn't great, either.

Google Keep

  • The text box check list style notes only allow one indent and it would be useful to allow at least 1 more indent(2 total).
  • More robust font changes.

It does everything I need it to do. It is easy to organize and categorize what I need and what I want to see.

Google Keep is very easy to use. Currently, the company I work for has employees from different age brackets, and this is one of the easiest apps on G-Suite to explain. Not a lot of people use it, but it is due to personal choice since a lot of people still prefer pen and paper to keep their notes.

I haven't used Creately's support. I don't know what to rate this to be honest. If there was an "N/A," I'd use that. I like products where I don't have to do a lot of research or studying to learn how to use the software. Creately allows me to jump in and go.

I never had to request support for Google Keep, all the information I needed is in the online help center. Never have a malfunction.

Alternatives Considered

Creately

In terms of pricing and functionality, Creately was the clear winner at the time, although the jury is still out on Creately's new version in terms of how simple it may be to use.

Google Keep

Task apps built into iOS just don't compete. The only edge these have over Google Keep is Siri can schedule something for you. But the power and flexibility of Google Keep is better.

Return on Investment

Creately

  • Creately is less expensive and dare I say more professional looking than Visio. It looks great at a fraction of the price.
  • Creately allows me to share ideas and processes with my clients. It shows that I understand their business processes, and increases their trust in my abilities to work with them.
Richard Crane | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Keep

  • Google Keep is free, and for what I need it for I don't need to purchase another tool.
  • It's handy when it comes to taking quick notes, but so is a piece of paper. This tool won't magically improve your life.
