Likelihood to Recommend

Opal

I honestly cannot recommend this tool enough. Opal is such a valuable tool for brand content creators and there is nothing like it available. If you're serious about content marketing and have a need to find ways to collaborate, plan and provide more visibility among teams, then Opal really is the only way to go. One more thing that's not being mentioned: The tool is simply amazing but it's only as amazing is the team behind the tool. Their customer support and willingness to quickly be in touch when needed is a key feature within itself. Seriously, such a good team of people.

Samepage

Samepage is well suited to situations:- when there is a need for ongoing collaboration between people- when these people lack tech skills- when there is a need for sharing and showing different kinds of mediaSamepage is less appropriate in situations (since there are better tools for those particular uses):- requiring more robust communication tools - when the objective is to execute a specific, finite task- when it is necessary a precise control of version history

Pros

Opal

  • Content planning: you can look at one asset and see how it is being used across multiple channels by multiple teams.
  • Content collaboration: it is really easy to see what other people and teams are contributing to an asset, or how they are using it. We can also duplicate content that was created by another team to use as a starting point in our own content collaboration.
  • High level/big picture overview: Opal allows us to see content that is being created, planned and scheduled very easily; it goes beyond social content (which we can also see in Sprinklr) to show us content created across multiple channels.

Samepage

  • All communication is literally on one page, so you don't have to learn its navigation. Cuts the learning curve.
  • User interface is very simple. WYSIWYG.
  • The mobile app works well and I like how it syncs with the desktop version.
  • Just discovered the Dropbox sync. Very cool. Works way better than Dropbox at sharing files!

Cons

Opal

  • No publishing capabilities, for the most part.
  • No analytics tie-ins.
  • Rather pricey.
  • Requires someone to really manage the structure in order to keep the tool organized and use it effectively. When this is done right, though, it's worthwhile.

Samepage

  • It can feel hard at times to get a real big picture view of all the projects and pages happening at the same time. It is easy to drill down or zoom out on specific pages, but it doesn't feel like you're getting a sense of overview or moving pieces for multiple pages.
  • There is really no way to have subtasks within larger tasks, and that is sorely missing.
  • It can be quite difficult to get team members up and running - there is a bit of a learning curve and it's not extremely intuitive.

We started using Samepage's free trial and hadn't used it enough by the time it was over. But they were very gracious in extending our trial and giving us extra Pages to use to be sure it met our needs. I love when software companies act like real people, care about our success and realize we are working off deadlines. We are now a paid user.

Alternatives Considered

Opal

You get for what you paid for. Opal has more features
Teena Thach | TrustRadius Reviewer

Samepage

Samepage stacks up very well against these other software programs, although it has its own advantages and disadvantages -- the grass is always greener on the other side. This software did what its main purpose was. It would have been great if it could be upgraded over a period of time with sharper graphics and better integration with mobile support.

Return on Investment

Opal

  • Opal allows for more discipline in marketing as teams are better aligned on messaging and big moments.
  • Opal cuts down on communication breakdowns and mistakes, which in the end leads to more happy customers.
  • I think Opal provides the team with more confidence as everyone is on the same page. With everything in one place rather than communications being lost in emails, etc., everyone is more efficient and can work knowing that there is one source of truth.

Samepage

  • We were able to be more effective in organizing events and research meetings
  • Samepage allowed the collaboration of different researchers on writing scientific articles
  • The pages in Samepage were used as a collaborative draft to create the final report of our research
