Likelihood to Recommend

OpenText MediaBin

If you want to share (or access) the most current version of any content MediaBin can be useful for ensuring that you are getting the right thing - assuming you can find it. Another useful functionality - OS sharing or exporting different file formats for a file. Often PDF works, but sometimes you need a file in a different image format and the software can allow that.

Depending on the company and their use for Salsify, I would definitely recommend this product.

Pros

OpenText MediaBin

  • Export files in multiple formats
  • Help reduce email clutter as a central repository
  • Help with version control

Salsify

  • Nearly instant publication of product content onto ecommerce platforms that support API connections. As the number of these connections grows, this will become more powerful.
  • Salsify's support team is usually very helpful, and always friendly. Development is constantly ongoing.
  • My favorite aspect of Salsify is the ability to quickly see what information is missing from a given product. Using readiness reports to identify gaps helps the whole team focus on what is important within their sphere of responsibility.
  • Image transformation is powerful. In the past, we had to rename, resize, crop, etc. to meet different expectations. Now, we just program the right transformations, hit a button, and Salsify does the heavy lifting.

Cons

OpenText MediaBin

  • Search is often a chellenge - using the file name or "item number" doesn't always bring up the expected results.
  • Navigation is not intuitive in places - finding different functions
  • The export function is powerful but not always clear, several options seem like the same thing. e.g. Do I need FTP ot HTTP download? Do I care?

Salsify

  • Video syndication is challenging in that the native file formats take up storage and streaming options are not available to the end user.
  • Initial mapping of channels could be easier if a drag and drop format would be available rather than setting up custom formulas.
  • If catalogs could be exported to PDF format that would be a huge plus.

I am only giving it a 9 because they are working on streamlining the uploading process to make things easier on our end - once this is complete I would most likely give it a 10!

Alternatives Considered

OpenText MediaBin

I was not involved in the selection process but MediaBin seems to be more of a "repository" than a "file-folder" system. It also displays thumbnail previews of files making it useful for sorting through visual elements, like photos or PDFs. I am not certain how it compares with regard to version history.

Salsify

We have not used alternatives. None seemed to have the feature set that Salsify offered.

Return on Investment

OpenText MediaBin

  • This software is more of a tool that resides in the background, so it is difficult to measure ROI.
  • One negative impact is the challenges of managing access and thus limiting productivity when people can't access things.
  • Another negative impact is the poor search functionality reducing productivity in finding the correct files when needed.
Clark Gregor | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salsify

  • Saves our designers and product information specialists time by automating many of the functions they previously did manually.
  • Gives us speed-to-market with new product information syndication and updates.
  • Adoption in-house has taken longer than desired but eventually there was buy-in after people understood what it did.
