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

    Socialcast has been a great tool for FactSet. I would recommend it to any firm looking for an easy-to-use tool to centralize communication and collaborate on a global scale.

    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.

    VMware Socialcast (discontinued)

    • Socialcast has an exceptional user experience. With very few idiosyncrasies, it works well on every platform I've tried.
    • The platform has such a high level of ease of use, it becomes somewhat addicting.
    • Social analytics are superb.
    • The platform is highly intuitive and requires zero training or coaching in order for network members to become productive with it.
    • It's extremely reliable. Only once in 4 years, was the product not available, and that was only for about a half-hour. In that half-hour, we realized how dependent we were on it. (Very.)
    • The multi-device and deployment options are excellent. On-premise, Private Cloud, and Multi-tenant SaaS all available.
    • The mobile apps for iPhone, tablets, and Android render well with a beautiful UI/UX. The desktop AIR app is equally highly usable.

    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.
    Mike Eisenberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    VMware Socialcast (discontinued)

    • The software is a little bit pricey because it is charged by user/month and depending on the deployment method.
    • For companies with a lot of workers the price can increase significantly.
    • The mobile app usability and notifications are poor. Need to be improved.
    • If there were more administrative features available the product would be improved

    Beyond the value FactSet derives from using the platform, Socialcast (the firm) has been a good partner to FactSet. We've experienced very little downtime with the service and they have been responsive and fair with enhancement requests and questions

    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.

    Excellent support; of course not perfect. :-)

    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.
    Mike Eisenberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    VMware Socialcast (discontinued)

    Socialcast is great for collaboration & light project management, but anything complex doesn't work well.

    Using it as an email notification curator works nice for us.
    Richard Bird | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    VMware Socialcast (discontinued)

    • Definitely more organized project management and team collaboration.
    • Efficiency in carrying out tasks.
    • Creates a spirit of collaboration and friendliness among colleagues.
