NewsCred

Well-suited to large company blogs, like our company, a global SaaS. We have various blogs, in various languages, that use NewsCred to update to all our respective blogs. It's a great way to silo our different blog content, but also to peep at each other's content to repost to respective blogs. NewsCred is awesome in this context, but wouldn't be as useful to a one-person shop that only publishes original brand content. The platform is also great for organizations that need to supplement content with freelance writers and syndicated posts.

Oracle is great for a very basic blog. The look of ours was designed and built on the back end/code side, so I'm not sure if there are a lot of clean, modern templates like you see in a lot of blogs today to choose from or not. It has been great having a number of authors who can write content directly in the platform and then submit it to our content managers for scheduling and publishing. I think the biggest issue people may have with it is the look of the interface. It needs an update.

Pros

NewsCred

  • The UI is intuitive and easy for users to navigate, and also easy for me to manage.
  • NewsCred constantly rolls out great new features that solve user pain, like Track Changes, Version History and automated suggestions for posts to create and boost based on their performance.
  • Support is very helpful when anything goes wrong, and the account reps are very proactive in gathering feedback about needed features.

  • Permission levels are also nice so a random user cannot just post without a certain level of access.
  • I also like being able to update the code if necessary.
  • It's easy for users to access and write, and there's a nice workflow to review any content before it gets published.

Cons

NewsCred

  • Too basic
  • Limited functionality
  • Unorganized

  • Templates are a good thing, but hard to set up and require a lot of work. (Other Oracle tools are more user-friendly when it comes to template design.)
  • While they did a good job updating the interface, I still believe more work can be done to make it more user-friendly.

Easy to use, and supporting several permutations, the CM suite is an excellent solution for a mid to large size business. It's meant to be used by a team, and the functionality can work across websites and landing pages. There's also the high benefit of translation management, providing support for localized products.

Don't forget about customer service once you have a closed the sale with a customer. Oracle seemed to not care about our needs/timeline after we gave them our Purchase Order

Alternatives Considered

NewsCred

NewsCred competes with Contently for content management and syndicated content/freelance writers. The interface for NewsCred is much prettier than Contently and they have a more robust platform for all things content marketing. I haven't delved much further into NewsCred competitors.

While OCM was a lot more money, they were able to prove to us that they are a much better solution to use and worth the extra cost. The reporting, capabilities along with the analytics that was easy to download was a big discussion factor for us.

Return on Investment

NewsCred

  • The analytics enables us to much more quickly and accurately determine which of our content is producing high levels of engagement.

  • Everyone had their own plan and executed them without taking into consideration the impact of another ongoing project. Compendium has created communication between teams that were not communicating before.
