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.

It's a great tool, period. I'd recommend it to anyone who was going to take the time to utilize its varied resources. I wouldn't recommend it for an old-school agency that's not really tech savvy but for anyone looking to grow a book of business, it's an invaluable tool.

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.

  • I love the Prep for a Meeting module. No matter the type of meeting you are prepping for, they have great resources to help you get the yes.
  • The employee education pieces are an awesome way to prepare employees for new benefit options like HSAs and HRAs.
  • The Compliance Roadmap is an excellent tool and is hugely appreciated by my small and middle market clients without full HR suites.

Cons

Curata

  • more subscription plans as not all people need all features.

Zywave

  • It's pretty darn good and it's my fault that I don't use it as much as I should. I'd love for it somehow to integrate more into my routine but I'm not sure what Zywave could do on their end about that.

    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

    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
