Curata

I liked Curata, but it depends on the use case of how it will be used as to how effective it is for someone. If you are trying to curate content it works great. Had I not been so put off by the issue mentioned earlier I would have given more effort to learn the CMS, so I am not sure how effective it really is.

We are mostly using Joomag in the content creation for Ads and public presentations. The development time is less when we go for the templates reference. The user interface is what we like most. The Easy steps of developing the content is very goog. To Joomag, they should start improving and put more feature in the content creation options, other market competitors are more focused on feedbacks and improving their solution

Pros

Curata

  • Curata is great at curating in content that is relevant to our audience. It is easy to add many different sources to the feed from all around the web and we've really seen Curata "learn" what we see as the most relevant.
  • The microsite we got as part of our Curata subscription is really fantastic. It's very customizable and we've been able to really craft it to suit our needs. There are so many different options available and our Curata rep has been really great with helping us cater each piece to our vision while making helpful suggestions along the way in terms of best practices. Plus, the word processor for publishing blog posts is so easy to use and I've had no issues with it so far unlike many other CMS platforms I've worked with. The Curata microsite is actually going to be replacing our current blog very soon - we love it that much!
  • I've had a great experience with customer service from Curata. Our rep is responsive and helpful and really good about not just answering our concerns but also providing feedback on our processes and giving advice for how we can improve.
  • Search capabilities within the curated content feed are fabulous. This is one area where I found other solutions to be lacking when we were going through the sales process, but Curata really succeeds here. It's extremely easy to find exactly what you're looking for in your content feed.

Joomag, Inc.

  • The Annual AMC cost is what is directly affects the revenues. They should come up with some content based subscription.
  • They should provide the word suggestion AI
  • It would be a cherry on the Top if have the spell check AI

Curata

For all of the features we loved when we signed on like the microsite and search capabilities and also their customer service, we will very likely renew with Curata. We also really like the evolution we have seen of the solution, just recently a new integration with Marketo (also a vendor of ours) was announced which will be very beneficial to us in optimizing our email newsletters

Outstanding support! The chat feature works great, I always get a fast response and they are relentless! Add to that the Joomag Academy, Blog, Case Studies, and White Papers, there is always an answer to a question and we've had some complicated ones over the years. You are never left wondering; they have a great customer communication system in place.

Alternatives Considered

Curata

The main difference that made me choose Curata over Percolate is that it is not complex. Curata is easier to set up, to use, and to manage. It does not involve any complicated configuration to get the content and data you need. Curata technical support is amazing, to say the least. I am not an expert in the technical stuff, but I feel assured their team can help me out when I have an issue

In the market you have so many free options, and you can refer them. But the Quality in content making is not on the side of being free. Joomag interface doesn't promote ads for their reveneues. The free softwares are filled with ads and unnecessary contents and interfaces. Joomag provides the exact amount of guide requires and have a good support hierarchy.
