    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.

    TemplateToaster

    TemplateToaster has the best features which include: BOOTSTRAP 3 support, W3C compliance, all devices and all browsers compatibility, clean and concise code generation, and extensive designing options. A big pack of sample templates comes free with software installation, and all the designing options have been provided as per the latest web design trends. Templates made in TemplateToaster make clients say, “wow, it’s amazing”. TemplateToaster is a designing tool as well as a development tool. In short words, it provides a GUI for designing templates, after the accomplishment of designing, the template can be exported into a fully-fledged web template, which is ready to use as a website design.

    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.

    TemplateToaster

    • Advanced designing features and using these advanced features very easily e.g. Bootstrap 3 support that makes flawless responsive templates.
    • Encapsulated all the major designing trends with respect to particular CMS.
    • Optimized code is produced for every theme/template as such the coding standards are perfectly followed by this software.
    • All WordPress themes made with this software pass the Theme Check test.
    • Because of W3C compliance it ensures consistency of websites over the web.
    • HTML5 and CSS3 also ensure better look of designs on small screens.
    • Apart from making web templates, one can make full fledged websites too. TemplateToaster allows making static websites with YouTube video inclusion. It has inbuilt FTP, so that user can easily move its website to the server.
    • An amazing and exclusive feature it provides is the option to draw custom widget/module/ block area.

    Cons

    Curata

    • For me the product worked great for what I needed it for, I no longer needed it and was a few days past their renewal date (you have to cancel either 60 or 90 days before the end date of the contract) and they would not work with me. They took the stance of, "Too bad, so sad." They offered me their CMS along with their CCS for this last year, but we never fully used it and was turned off by the lack of customer service initially in this situation...especially after it was a matter of around 10 days or so that I was late.
    • Having to keep reconnecting LinkedIn would throw me off at times.
    • Sometimes the article I was trying to post to WordPress would get hung up and I would need to get a hold of support to help clear the system.

    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

    Alternatives Considered

    Curata

    We closely considered Rallyverse before deciding on Curata. Rallyverse had superior social sharing capabilities, but Curata's microsite and email newsletter features plus the infinite content source and feed search capabilities far outweighed what Rallyverse has to offer at this time. We are very happy with our decision

    TemplateToaster

    • Advanced features, lesser price and ease of use. For designing perspective, it has many options in accordance with latest web designing trends.
    • Most prominent is- custom positions can be made for widgets or plugins to be included
    • Slideshow can be included.
    • Images browsed from the system can be transformed using its image editor.
    • Texture-effects-shadow can be applied wherever required.
    • margin-padding settings can be done easily.
    • And many more options are provided by this software on its interface.

    Return on Investment

    Curata

    • I would say neutral for us, but more so because of how we were using it and it being a stop-gap fix for us.
    Shane Adair | TrustRadius Reviewer

    TemplateToaster
