"censhare is a great tool"

What do you like best?

The company is very knowledgable and extremely helpful with their software. The software is incredible and is extremely useful. I like the capability to customize this software to what ever you would like. It an work as a basic Digital Asset Management system, or be your entire Ad set workflow. This software can fit the needs of almost any company from inventory to full ad sets to user management.

What do you dislike?

Due to the size of the software, it can be a bit to take in. There is a lot to learn about the software, and no one person can administrate or cover the entire software. It can get a bit expensive too due to all of the customizations that can be done.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am an engineer that supports this software ware, but we do have clients who are using this to run a complete ad set through this software from start to finish. I have seen this software used for text books from start to finish and even for video editing and publishing.

"Excellent simple configurable and powerful asset management and workflow tool"

What do you like best?

It's a configurable system as opposed to one requiring development.

The two methods of accessing the platform - web or java client

The search capability

Finally the ability to build workflows and MRM within the system

What do you dislike?

Very little. A more detailed roadmap would be good, but not of improved features but new ones. This is a very easy system to use and deploy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I assessed a number of products and Censhare was by far the easiest to deploy and use, as well as not overly costly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Access to assets, ease of finding them and ensuring we are using the latest/approves ones.

Creating and digitising working processes to maximise resources

What Digital Experience Platforms (DXP) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Responsible for maintenance and development of censhare"

What do you like best?

censhare provides a basic workflow engine with which it is simple to configure different workflows. When a process/workflow is designed time to market is short.

What do you dislike?

The user interface for the Java client isn't the most inviting one. Search can also be improved since not all users can understand the advanced search

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have committed managers/leaders close to the users as well as commitment from top management where applicable

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Core opportunity has been automation.

- In/out of information/XML's,

- Automatic flow of assets in our production

- Predictability for process/workflow

"Sophisticated and elegant digital workflow software"

What do you like best?

I was an early adopter of Censhare in the US -- the first Editor-in-Chief to work with it here -- and I'm satisfied with it overall. It's allowed us to go from a paper-passing system to an almost paperless situation without a lot of pain. My favorite thing about it is being able to look at and manipulate flat plans populated with the actual layouts in progress. I also like a "print preview" feature that allows me to "flip through" a simulated magazine before sending the pages to the printer.

What do you dislike?

In general, it feels as though Censhare was developed primarily with the back-end user in mind: It's so loaded with protections against elements getting detached and the like that's it's tough on the creative user. I'm in the process of developing a new magazine now, and many of the features that are a Godsend to the folks in Production are tying my hands as someone creating something new.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like everyone else, we're trying to simplify our workflow so we can gain efficiency and free up staff to do more. Censhare had definitely helped us to do that.

"Censhare - for those with structure in mind"

What do you like best?

fast flexible access to a wide range of knowledge and functionality

What do you dislike?

difficult domain structure .. forces to make duplicates of assets to move between domains

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind that you need to rethink how you produce content into the direction that structure and accessability often forces you to rethink again. Don't try to implement a complex product like censhare while keeping the internal structures and shape censhare to become an analogy to your trtaditional way of work. Censhare needs an open mind and your readiness to change.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With censhare we are able to produce and sell knowledge.

As a language driven editorial house we need to add value by adding structure to our content.

This enables us to access a wider market

"Truly a unique strategy for omnichannel content management"

By flexibly distributing information to all participants in the business workflow, companies are enabled to be faster and more nimble in their messaging,

What do you dislike?

It is such a different product than it's competitors that it is often hard to explain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

should be in all serious review of solutions for any marketing, or publishing company or department.

"censhare content media platform"

What do you like best?

censhare have moved the milestones for the provisioning of global content across omni-channels. Not only does the technology provide one of the very few fully integrated MAM frameworks within a digital publishing solution, it delivers some unique data relationship capabilities that enables the platform to extend into the corporate and enterprise "content" world with some ease. Now fully fledged as a "SaaS" platform, with a global partnership with Amazon AWS services. censhare 5.0 (the new release), also delivers incredible capabilities with the HTML5 framework and XML constructs.

What do you dislike?

censhare 4.0 had a "challenging" user interface, which now with the progressive role out of V5.0 is being changed dramatically, making the solution much easier to use and deploy. What censhare does lack is a global network of partners that are capable of building the framework into a business platform. It's one area I am sure that censhare understand that they need to grow, both into marketing agencies, digital companies and consultancies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a very tight Scope of Work (SOW), stick to your main business requirements (achieving 80%) of what you need is better than 100% of nothing. Configure censhare NEVER customize the platform. Integrate where you can and ensure that you have the right consultants and technical support before you start. censhare capability outside of Europe is still a little too weak, they need to strengthen their capability in APAC and North/South American markets. Exceptional multi-lingual solution, great cross platform, multi-device capable and integrates, PIM,CRM, Media and analytics at the content level (a rare achievement).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having control over content is key, in today's digital environment, speed to market, localization and agility, along with performance metrics and analytics are key in driving any organizations global growth, censhare is an enterprise technology that in capability is equal to what SAP did for ERP and Salesforce did for CRM.

"If you want to connect people with content and processes simply and efficiently... look no further "

What do you like best?

Ease of use and breadth of functionality in one system.

What do you dislike?

That many companies are not yet familiar with censhare.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Often companies have a complex IT infrastructure which prohibits them from simply delivering the right content to their customers. censhare integrates all internal and external communication into one system that interfaces information to existing and relevant systems such as ERP and/or CRM. It then distributes the content to all communication channels with relevant information for customers.ā€

"censhare can be the hub of your omnichannel marketing automation"

What do you like best?

Leverages what you already have (assets; marketing intelligence; branding and business rules) to allow the same resources to generate exponentially more output in a more controlled, targeted, and personalized and/or regionalized fashion.

What do you dislike?

To get the full benefit of the tool, your organization may have to undergo some process or culture shifts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definition of scope is key. Implement in phases. Consider change management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Personalization; Asset Management; Brand Management

"Censhare"

What do you like best?

It simplifies steps and help eliminate extraneous time consumed to communicate with other departments. Also, it enabled us to constantly monitor how each issue of the magazine is coming together by the option of viewing the flat plan of the entire issue. My absolute favorite function of Censhare would be the versions. It's comforting to know that I can go back in time!

What do you dislike?

From designer's perspective, Censhare and Adobe Creative Suite is still a bit of work around. For example, having to check in and check out twice (once in the Adobe programs and once in Censhare) seems like something that can be reviewed and changed. Also, the UI of the program could also be improved. For example, the asset query box should be more like the links panel in Adobe programs-- It seems too cumbersome as is. Our Photo department and the Art department that I am in, we handle large photos. Censhare tends to slow down when handling these photos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am an art director at First for Women magazine. As a manager, I need to know where the files are, what stage the files are in to better manage the designers. With Censhare, it became tremendously easier to track with whom the files are and how far along a project has gone. Also, with the versions, junior staffers are less timid about making mistakes. It works as a buffer/ support.

Someone from our team created a step by step guide on how to use Censhare which has helped tremendously.

censhare is extremely flexible. We've experienced a highly motivated team that is extremely motivated and very helpful and knowledgeable.

What do you dislike?

We have found some features don't exist, so it takes a little time to work with product marketing and software engineering.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing GoPro videos. Capturing and curating raw videos, curating work in process and publishing and curating final videos. We can easily identify and publish specific content and keep track of rights and royalties associated with these videos.

"A perfect and innovative system for our needs as a global media company."
