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

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

Zimbra is great for an email system for a medium or large organization with appropriate IT staffing. The system is easy to use for end-users, and has a fantastic web interface. Unfortunately, it is overly complex, when considering staffing requirements and price, when compared with Office 365 or Google Apps for smaller organizations. For other education customers, it is hard to compete with Microsoft and Google providing their services for "Free" now though

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.

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

  • Filter emails with specific information required.
  • Very good storage capacity.
  • Has a mobile version and another web.
  • It has a friendly and modern graphic interface.
  • It is compatible with all operating systems.

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

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

  • The password change is not activated when you access by IMAP, Pop3 or Exchange sync. You have to know that the password change is required and you must go to the website to do so.
  • The management of mail rules should have more checking options.
  • There should be more applications compatible with Zimbra, the ones that appear in the Zimlets.

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.

It just works very well, solid solution for the deployment of communication, mail and messaging services that are agile and simple to use.

Overall, we were satisfied with the implementation. We perhaps should have spent more time consulting with Zimbra or others regarding best practices but as we got to know the system better we were able to make changes relatively easily after the fact.

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

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

We selected Zimbra because it has a lower cost in the market, offers more development features for its open source, has a very easy to use interface and adjusts to the needs of the company.

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

Zimbra Email & Collaboration

  • Since all of our ROI studies and strategies are performed at the corporate level, I'm really not sure what positive or negative impacts Zimbra has had on our overall business objectives. I can say that at least one positive impact it has on my business objectives, in the medical record department, is the ability to be as paperless as possible.
