Upland Kapost

Kapost has potential to be a great asset in small and large orgs. If you're not producing a great deal of content, or coordinating across a large team, there's still tremendous value, but it scales as your org scales because it makes it easier to coordinate and manage large teams and large content archives.

I work for a small company, so everyone tends to be involved in a lot of projects. This can make it difficult to book time with the leadership team to record them for company announcements or other similar needs. Vyond is the perfect solution for a video that doesn't depend on other people's schedules. For added fun, I can make the characters look like our leadership team and even borrow their voices from meetings, conference calls, or other announcements. This lets me create the illusion that our leaders are directly sharing information with new hires or individual team members without actually requiring them to take time out of their day

Pros

Upland Kapost

  • Filtering: If you make the most out of your custom details and custom fields, you can gain newfound access to materials that may have long been lost in the ether. It's really easy for us, for instance, to see all of our videos at once. Or everything targeting a certain buying stage. Or you can keyword search to see everything on one topic.
  • Workflows: It's really nice to lay out "who sees what when" in a digital way, because everyone involved on an asset can easily see what stage things are at. You can also set deadlines to tasks, which seems a bit more firm than a casual email, because you can visually see how meeting your deadline fits within the whole timeline.
  • Calendars: The calendar feature is nice for us because we have a blog, so we can see when everything is (supposed) to go live. It's easy to see when I, as a copy editor, should be expecting work, so I can align my day accordingly. Way better than the old-fashioned "mental note" system.

  • Easy to use features that help you create the story behind your video.
  • There are collaboration tools (if you have the right plan) that help you work on a video as a team.
  • I like the different styles of video that you can choose from.

Cons

Upland Kapost

  • Social media distribution needs improvement. Specifically a calendar for planned Tweets and a better way to schedule multiple shares of the same content.
  • System performance is somewhat slow.
  • Should be an easier way to make changes, like adding custom fields or publication destinations, to all content types, rather than one at a time.
Amber Newman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vyond

  • Possibly make the interface a bit more detailed in order to show the triggers on assets at all times.
  • Allow more functions to be available when your right click.
  • The ability to easily transfer from video to video that have previously been produced.

We are using some other systems that might have replaced Kapost, but none of them had the workflow functionality we were looking for. So, we're sticking with Kapost for now.

I was recently at a conference where I learned that many of my peers also use Vyond, solidifying my opinion that it is the right tool for out needs. Further more, one of our content vendors also uses it, ensuring that I will continue to use it as I believe this will facilitate our collaborations in the future

This program is great when you have no video experience! There's only a little of a learning curve to the program. In general, the user interface is great and easier than using a program like Adobe premier. It's a great resource to use as a marketer.

Vyond is just an animated video creation tool. You have to use your video content and track its performance through other means. Because it is an online tool it doesn't hog your resources or slow down any other tools that I use. It is a stand-alone product and it doesn't need to integrate with any of our other tools. It does what it does and that is all we need.

I haven’t had any issues that required me to contact their support team. However, I believe support in any product starts before you have to call for help. Vyond provides an option for priority queue when you have their professional option. This is great for folks who need things done faster, especially when businesses can’t afford any downtime. Their Live chat feature is also reassuring, because I don’t always want to spend time on the phone or on hold if their call volume is high and I need to solve an issue.

ISI listing from Thomson Reuters returns bigger and more narrowed lists. If you need a narrowed list go with them. If you want a large party internal [tool] deploy Kapost, it works just fine. I also have found that the design team behind Aprimo has a bigger design background and can turn around content at a quicker rate.

I can't say exactly which one I would recommend more, but the pros of BranchTrack are that they offer the ability to upload voicefiles which will automatically attach to each scene, saving A LOT of time. They're program is also very easy to move scenes around in and having the ability to reroute someone back to an earlier scene is nice. It also provides the user interaction vs. just watching a video. However, GoAnimate on the other hand allows you to customize background and scene layouts a little more than BranchTrack does. It's also better if you don't want the user interaction

Return on Investment

Upland Kapost

  • Better visibility into your whole content inventory.
  • Easier for sales to find and use relevant content.
  • Easy to manage and monitor progress in the content creation process.
  • As with any workflow /project management tool, the project management adds another layer of work, but it's worth it.

  • Thanks to GoAnimate we can now present products and services in a more modern and engaging way. These videos are more viewed than other content. The learners love these videos which maintain a friendly atmosphere.
  • We believe that GoAnimate is the most affordable solution for creating animated videos. We definitively save money in comparison to hiring a production company for creating such videos.
