If you are not a Gsuite user then using Slite is a great alternative! You essentially have the same functionality of being able to share notes and documents with other team members, as well as keeping notes and documents private.

Love the product and I really like how we use it for public sites. The only negative aspect is that it is just hard to find Tridion devs that understand the tool, grasp .net, react, and understand the blueprint, etc.
Read full review Pros Cheap to start Easy to understand and work with Nice emoji support Continuously improving software, new features all the time Read full review Makes it easy to spin up a new site quickly Allows for numerous users to work on the same site without conflicting with each other's changes Allows you to unpublish changes or revert to old versions if you make a mistake Allows you to time publishing actions (for example, you can set it to happen overnight) Read full review Cons I don't love that it doesn't integrate easily with the other tools we use, at least it doesn't as far as I know. Since there is not an Excel sort of capability there is no way it could ever replace Google, so it is sometimes easier to just use Word docs instead of Slite since everything is in one place. I think if Slite extended their product line up, it would be more attractive to use exclusively, instead of just using it for documentation. Read full review Tridion is complicated in enough ways that it makes it difficult to train new users. Therefore, we have to limit the number of people with access to the system since we have not yet implemented Workflow. When something goes wrong (items fail to publish, or there is unexpected behavior with components), there is little explanation provided that would point us in the right direction to troubleshoot. As a result, content Authors and Editors have to frequently ask for IT assistance. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I am giving this a semi-high rating because we have already got Tridion up and running and we are still in the process of moving the sites over to Tridion. It is unlikely we will be moving things to a new CMS AGAIN in the near future as the cost to get Tridion was high.

The editor user interface is very user friendly and in-site editing makes simple updates fast and easy. The extensibility of Tridion is a big plus and the ability to add our own options into the default Tridion interface helps us integrate with external systems. Finally, the user permissions and security system helps us deploy it within our large organization.

[In my opinion,] Slite is cheaper but less mature and feature full. Notion is a much more mature solution, so I'd recommend it for teams who want to be at the front and don't care about cost.

It is a nuclear missile compared to the other handguns and knives on the market today. But it also requires nuclear technicians and expertise that a handgun doesn't require. Do you need to decimate your competition and you have the investment capabilities necessary to put a nuclear missile into the sky? Then definitely do it. Especially if you need a very good multi-lingual blueprint provider like Tridion.
Read full review Return on Investment It is helping manage our documentation and processes all in one place. It is helping with company updates and product releases. It is nice that everyone has access to shared boards and private boards to use. We also use it to track customer feedback after a big release. Read full review SDL is a very complex system. Creating custom components by external vendors turned out to be expensive. The learning curve is very slow, so training takes a lot of time and cost. The revamped corporate site looks clean, modern, and is mobile-friendly. Read full review ScreenShots
