"CEROS - Great for Publishers"

What do you like best?

CEROS' design interface closely resembles programs that designers already use, such as Photoshop and InDesign. It's extremely easy to use and any designer can work in the program quickly--truly within a week they will have a grasp. CEROS allows for clean, professional, interactive and eye-catching creations, from quizzes and infographics to flip books and microsites. You can get very creative with your work and make it from scratch, or download one of CEROS" already-made templates. If you see something you like that CEROS created for another publisher, agency, etc., chances are you can download that same template and repurpose it for your own use. For those in sales or marketing, the program can help create engaging presentations that move away from simplistic PowerPoints. The ability to share a preview link helps a company work with clients to ensure it was they want, providing a level of QA that you can't get with Adobe Creative Suite. Lastly, the support team at CEROS is fast and helpful.

What do you dislike?

From a publisher's standpoint, CEROS inability to set a creation live for the future makes it difficult to work with. The use of scheduling is imperative when clients want their campaign to launch on a certain day; therefore, you will have to set reminders to go within CEROS and publish it live. In addition, the lack of capturing readers' information makes for another drawback. Readers who come to a publisher site cannot enter in their information on a CEROS creation. This is a big selling point when we work with clients who would like to capture an email database from a quiz; as a result, we cannot offer them this option and must revert to using a separate program. Lastly, the responsiveness can be tricky on certain websites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please keep in mind that CEROS training is required for designers who will be using it, but it is extremely easy to pick up. The program is costly so make sure your company will be getting the most out of the product.

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

As mentioned, we are able to provide our clients animated products that we could not before, which helps us to create more revenue for our company. We no longer need to rely on an engineering team to create a custom product and can complete it within our design team. The product makes for efficient designing and production, allowing us to provide a faster turnaround time for our clients. Nothing makes a client happier than having a product be created in less than five business days and have it go live.

"Easy to use, great results"

What do you like best?

We were looking for a way to create interactive ebooks, something outside of a PDF. We came across the Ceros product and have been really impressed. It is easy to use so my team who are not graphical designers can maintain and fix assets. It is a collaborative platform so our graphics firm can do their piece while we are editing, and we can review it together online.

Support is top notch. They answer questions very quickly (even immediately at times), and are always thorough.

What do you dislike?

Some browser specific issues sometimes, but that's about it. there are some features that would be nice, but that's not a dislike and I'm sure it will come.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it.

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

The resulting products are great. We have experienced a big uptick in click thrus with the eBooks produced with Ceros.

"Good Platform but has room for much more UX improvements"

What do you like best?

The best part that made us leave our previous platform provider has to be the transitions to create a page that becomes interactive for the user. The system is built to allow users to produce content very quickly and on the fly as the studio is hosted online rather than physical downloaded software.

What do you dislike?

Not being able to schedule creative to go live in the future. This is something that should be a standard tool in todays world. We also suffer from loading speeds of ceros content where the rest of the page has loaded and we are still waiting for Ceros to finish loading.

The SDK kit is more of a complex integration than we first imagined. There were a fair few bugs which we didn't expect to see which involved us rebuilding over 5000 hotspots on all our creative to work on iPad as the training didn't cover this specific area!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Support are great at listening to developing the system to our needs and requirements. I cannot fault this, but with teething issues out the way, it is a great platform for any business to use for custom pages without the requirement of development time

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

We use Ceros for landing pages, look books, internationally across all devices to help promote marketing campaigns and merchandising products / brand launches.

"A diverse, developing product with a strong road-map."

What do you like best?

I'm a big fan of the customer support - the team respond quickly to our enquiries and have listened to our suggestions and needs. Whilst not everything has been put onto the road map as quickly as we would have liked, the product has been developed well over the time we have been working with Ceros.

What do you dislike?

For me, I need the option to schedule an experience going live. This is so important with an E-Commerce site as when going into a sale period, we need the flexibility to push something live at a set time. We expected this to be a standard function with the Ceros product but unfortunately it has not yet been developed - I've been told it is on the road map for the future.

Also, I would like to see a better analytics area. I've suggested the idea of a heatmap a few times - again, I've been reassured this is to be discussed at the next planning meeting. It would significantly improve the post-launch end of an experience... After all, the creators need to know the best approaches and what worked well when creating more content!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take time to look through Ceros' examples area on the site - plenty of great content there to see what is achievable with their product. It's continually developing so it's good to check out their release notes frequently too!

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

We recently created a LookBook intended to inspire the customer - Ceros supplied us with example links and suggestions of what may be achievable on this task. I feel their input did help us on our way towards creating the content.

"Ceros us let's us focus on design and content."

What do you like best?

Three things.

1) The platform is user friendly taking no time for new users to get acquainted with it.

2) Their customer service is genuinely caring and helpful. In three years, they've always gone above and beyond when answering questions or providing help. They even recently added an in-app customer service chat. So while you're working you can chat with someone on their end to help you through any challenges you may be encountering.

3) They regularly ask for feedback which fuels their frequent software updates. It seems they are pushing updates every few weeks. It's pretty amazing.

What do you dislike?

We've been an early adopter having used Ceros since 2013. Early on our frustration was the lacking of typography features. Though has greatly improved since then, it is still something they could build upon even more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a bit pricey. However if you are producing substantial digital content on at least a monthly basis, you can make it back very quickly as it will lower your costs for designers and developers. In essence what used to take up to three people to produce in the past went down to one, plus it can be created in a fraction of the time.

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

Ceros freed us from worrying about the talent, time, and costs associated to building beautiful digital experiences. It has enabled us to design and iterate great content quickly.

"Intuitive and rewarding to use"

What do you like best?

A lot of the Ceros interface is similar to Adobe CS products like Illustrator, so going between the two programs to create and then animate was very easy to pick up. The workflow on many things is similar, including the use of layers.

What do you dislike?

Some of the workflow is so similar between Ceros and Illustrator that I get a little frustrated when there's an Illustrator shortcut that doesn't work in Ceros. But these are really minor things, like the fact that ctrl+shift+> or < doesn't affect type size.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The on-site support with Ceros is amazing. If I run into a question or there's something I'm not sure how to do, the live chat link is right there and the team is unbelievably knowledgeable and responsive. I never feel like I'm on my own.

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

Our landing pages have always felt a step behind others in our industry and this allows us to do something fun and attention-grabbing that also more clearly communicates features and benefits.

"Excellent service for data visualization w/ attentive staff members"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of the service. I provide my Ceros contacts with some specs/requirements for content, and they are able to produce quality pieces I can distribute. The communication between our team and Ceros is constantly flowing.

What do you dislike?

We have had some trouble with mobile optimization and creating one piece of content that is optimized for multiple platforms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to have a clear idea of your company's strategy prior to reaching out to Ceros.

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

We are solving problems in the area of content marketing. We want to show that our company is an educated resource when it comes to business solutions, a service that is not highly fashionable or easy to market. Ceros is taking our content that is textually rich but visually lacking and turning it into something we can share.

"Simple & Beautiful"

What do you like best?

Ceros is easy to use for anyone who is familiar with Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Photoshop. UX from those platforms to Ceros is pretty seamless and because of that it's so easy to work on and create beautiful and interactive experiences. When you need help, the Ceros Support is always quick to answer sometimes within only an hour! At first, I was a little annoyed at a few missing features from Photoshop I've grown accustomed to but Ceros is updated frequently and on the support forums they're taking suggestions for new updates from users.

What do you dislike?

The inability of changing the loading wheel unless you pay extra for it.

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

We had the problem of needed an update on our website, we wanted our imagery to be more impactful and have a more interactive shopping experience.

"Didn't make it past the trial period"

What do you like best?

The ability to create engaging, interactive content in a relatively simple, inexpensive way.

What do you dislike?

The platform wasn't as intuitive as we expected. We had some issue with hosting the content on our site. It was also really unfortunate that you have to design multiple versions of a piece of content for mobile & desktop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great tool for companies hoping to create simple, attractive content. If you're hoping to use it for more complicated subject matter or needing to use sophisticated features, it may not be for you.

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

We were looking for a way to outsource rich media content for our clients in order to free up our internal designers and developers for other projects. We wanted to cut down the total time and resources it would take to produce these pieces of content.

"Ceros: Valuable content platform to engage your audience"

What do you like best?

This is an incredibly easy tool to use and get started on. The onboarding process was so easy based on the help from the Ceros team. It's been a pleasure to see all that we can do with such willing and passionate support all along the way.

What do you dislike?

There are things we haven't been able to use, yet. We've only built out infographics, which is one of many creatives we can design. I'd like to see the full capability of the tool - not a bad review, just ramping up. It seems like there are a lot of new features being added, as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the Ceros team as much as you can. They are a wonderful resource that is really willing to help you achieve success.

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

We are now connecting and engaging with our audience. Before, we were sending out static graphics that were lost in the competition. Now, we can have our visitors come on a journey with us through the content we're producing.

"The Ceros Platform is a fantastick product that allows us designers to do what we are good at."

What do you like best?

I love the built in animation features, these allow me to add exciting elements to my designs without having to learn how to code. This way I can concentrate on what I am good at....designing

What do you dislike?

Limitations on adding music to the experience, some editing features that many of the adobe products offer.

As for the subscriptions, they are quite expensive. As a small agency it would be great to have a monthly payment with a reasonable subscription to be able to offer to more of my clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try. The support team is amazing at helping you get going as well as trouble shooting any issues that may come up. Plus it adds another credential to your resume to offer to clients.

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

I am able to offer an exciting experience to otherwise dull pdf type publications for my clients.

"Great HTML5 content platform for those without dedicated developers"

What do you like best?

The experience of using Ceros is smooth and consistent. Their WYSIWYG interface is slick and deep, their stability is wonderful and the performance of the embedded content is nicely optimized for speed. It really is a game changer, so long as you have the content to to take advantage of all of Ceros's strengths.

What do you dislike?

It is a great platform but you need to have the content to produce. It is expensive it you are not going to take advantage of it. The built in analytics are good, but you will want to make sure you add Google Analytics to track deep interactions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will be happy using Ceros. Their support is really wonderful and their team is very focused on customer success.

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

We used Ceros to solve the problem of not having dedicated developers for our content team. It performed very well for us, leading to great new leads and content downloads.

"Powerful yet easy tool to use"

What do you like best?

The capabilities of the Ceros platform are extensive if you are looking at adding a digital lookbook or brochure. Additionally, the training to produce these pieces is very short --- especially if your design/creative staff is used to Adobe creative products.

What do you dislike?

If you plan to embed video into your digital pieces, please we aware of your compression settings. Adding just a few 20-30 second videos could turn your smooth and fast loading lookbook into a clunky and slow loading disappointment. Be mindful when developing.

Also, while the platform is mobile friendly, it was adaptive and not responsive (at least our version of the platform).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be mindful if you plan to make your digital pieces shoppable that you will need to schedule additional time and resources for their SDK implementation. These capabilities are not ready 'out of the box.'

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

We wanted to create a shareable lookbook for our customers to access anywhere (desktop, mobile, etc.). Ceros even worked with us so that their platform had a bit more shareable functionality.

"Ceros has great features but needs to evolve for responsive"

What do you like best?

I really love the fact that any e-book can be brought to life with engaging content and interactivity. I also found the real time edits to be useful as the file became a living and breathing document.

What do you dislike?

There were restrictions to it's ability to be responsive for mobile usage. We had to reconfigure page sizes to accommodate. Also, there were times when edits didn't seem to take, not sure if that had to do with the number of layers we had built into the file.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask as many questions before taking on ebook development. Also, be more prepared with imagery and finalizing your document before you start building. Finally, make sure you've determined proportion to work with multiple screen sizes.

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

We had wanted to showcase research findings. Ceros helped us do that in a more engaging way.

"Simple, effective, and easy!"

What do you like best?

I really like how easy it is to create and adjust web pages with Ceros. Compared to prior experiences using something different, the Ceros way is leaps and bounds quicker and easier.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how you can't see objects that you drag into the scratch area on the editing screen. It would be nice to see what is outside the bounds of the page you are creating, just in case there are assets there that you might save for later.

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

The one problem that we solved for sure by using Ceros is that we cut the time it takes to edit our websites homepage in half.

"Amazing Product "

What do you like best?

This powerful tool allows our company to reach our customers in ways that are more effective, efficient, and engaging than we were ever able to do before. As an added bonus, their team is a absolute pleasure to work with.

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints. My team loves using this platform and working with the Ceros team. I do however hope that they create a way to export Ceros experiences as video of gif files sometime in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The chat tool is extremely helpful for any questions that come up in the design process.

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

We struggled for a while to find ways to make our content more engaging. With Ceros, we're able to create beautiful interactive designs that make our content both engaging and aesthetically pleasing to our customer

"SVP Marketing"

What do you like best?

The experiences are beautiful, the Ceros team is easy to work with, and it's an affordable solution.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if the Ceros team could come to us with new projects, but that would require them to become an agency (as opposed to being a provider of experiences).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Ceros to other marketers.

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

Ceros helps us bring our content (sponsored stories, guides, whitepapers) etc to life in the form of an online experience/infographics.

"Great end-result. A lot of potential for improved client workflow"

What do you like best?

The end-result of the product is great. The creative experience and working with the designer was fast - we had great communications with weekly conference calls.

What do you dislike?

Working through technical issues embedding the Ceros code into our domain. There was back and forth between the Ceros tech team and our web team for about a month, resolving issues with load time, flickering of animations, mobile compatibility. It was a painful back and forth process. Luckily we had enough time before the launch date, but it could have delayed the launch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think there's a lot of opportunity with Ceros, but there needs to be a more seamless way to technically integrate their product with their client's web platforms. I'd love to scale these projects globally, but I don't feel comfortable expanding with our global partners until we've worked out the kinks to resolve technical issues. There needs to be tighter partnership to find/resolve issues and integrate those resolutions into future projects.

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

Goal of this project was to provide a new, engaging experience for our ebooks & tipsheets. Goal of converting to the Ceros interactive experience was to measure engagement better and increase conversion. We have yet to see the benefits because we haven't launched the interactive publicly yet.

"Ceros: A content tool"

What do you like best?

What I like best about Ceros was the company themselves and the employees. After a visit to their office and calls and emails, the support can't be beat. The product is easy to use and quick to set up.

What do you dislike?

As an animator, you want as much control as possible in every movement and action. While a lot of variety of actions and movements is offered, it's limited. Also, the image loader is Ceros branded with a cost to have it removed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider have the Ceros loader removed upfront. Make sure your developer is also involved at the very beginning.

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

Being locked into a website template has left our site static. Ceros offers a quick and easy solution to engage our customers.

"An excellent tool, still it definitely needs to grow up!"

What do you like best?

Anyone can learn to make amazing presentations with just an hour training.

What do you dislike?

There are some basic features that aren't covered yet. I understand the tool is still very young.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't let the interface frighten you. It seems to be difficult but you just need to dedicate one hour to get amazing results.

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

Presentations are not "powerpointy" anymore. Ceros makes any presentation interesting. It can grab your attention with just interactive actions that make everything easier to read.

"Very high TCO"

What do you like best?

Its easy for designers to use. We are able to create good looking grahpics, but you need to really get used to the system before being proficient at it.

What do you dislike?

- Charging for ongoing support. I don't understand why we have to pay Ceros when we have support questions. We're already paying a license fee, and want to use the product, but in order to get help, we have to pay even more. This makes the total cost of ownership really high.

- Their embeds are really large in size, meaning that it is slow to load and unoptimized for mobile phones.

- Mobile rendering is an afterthought. You have to create a second interactive graphic and you have to have your page call the mobile version when the browser gets smaller.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider this - you'll spend money on licensing, and then on ongoing support. please budget for this. Also, the graphics are not transferrable once you end your license with them - so you don't count on portability.

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

Interactive graphics without using developer time. We've sold a couple of them, which is good, but again, we have paid through the teeth in support costs from our team reaching out to their support. Looking back it hasn't been great for us.

":),:|,:)),:(,:)"

What do you like best?

:) Best interface I've seen for building basic websites.

:| The feature set was a bit simple but adequate.

:)) Canvas, yes. The tipping point has arrived for <canvas>

:( However, the best features of canvas were not exploited (webGL,3D,bitmapData)

:) It's right on the edge of adoptability though the advantages did not push it over for us.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to "dislike" per-se. I would have loved to see a "z" axis in there just to spice up the possibilities. If a customer used this feature, great. If not, the potential would inspire some positive feedback.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For quick deployment cycles and responsive cross platform assets, this may well be the tool you are looking for.

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

So, we have just started using full canvas builds as a solution to big animation sites. There's no silver bullet for this technology that doesn't require webGL so we have to customize the implementations. If Ceros had parallax 3D, I would encourage the team to use this product. One great selling point was being able to push the build phase of web projects up stream to the designers. This would relieve us of the PSD to HTML phase.

"Ceros platform thoughts"

What do you like best?

Ceros has a platform that looks gorgeous. The tools are intuitive and the efficiency is an absolute pleasure.

What do you dislike?

Their pricing makes Ceros a hard sell. I had a call with a representative when Ceros was about to change their pricing plan, and it seemed as if they are simply attempting to see how high they could raise their service fees for a given brand. With so many amazing tools available on the web for free, it's only a matter of time before Ceros' intuitive web tools are given to the public by a savvy competitor. I truly love the Ceros tools, but to me the costs are unjustifiable for any millennial-run business in this era.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It depends on your business needs. I would say grab a free website online, use social media, and power your business on a lean diet.

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

I run a transmedia entertainment company. The Ceros platform test I did is great, but the functionality does not contain enough of what we need as a business to host immense interactive experiences.

"I personally used the software to develop interactive sales and marketing collateral for my team "

What do you like best?

I liked the ability to collaborate with other designers/content creators on my team in real time. As a project manager it was great to see how things were coming along and also I could jump in and work together on a project with remote employees.

You customer support was really helpful if we had any trouble using the platform.

What do you dislike?

There were a few bugs here and there that I let tech support know about. The product crashed a few times on me when I tried to copy and paste things, and I also had an issue with the editor showing things in one font/color in the editor but something different in the preview. I also did not like how you preform product updates at 5 or 6pm EST during the week, an update in the middle of the night or on the weekend would have worked better for me.

You added an icon feature which was really nice, but I had trouble searching/navigating it. Something that has categories or the ability to save your favorite icons would be helpful.

Copying and pasting from word was not very streamlined, it would jumble characters, add strange spacing and also did not handle smart quotes well. I completed understand that content editors across platforms often have that problem but I think the ability to paste as plain text would have helped solve this problem.

It was also frustrating at times that your system doesn't support .psd or .ai files.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is not going to be a product that is usable without 1) working knowledge or graphic design and 2) the appropriate graphic design tools such as illustrator or photoshop this is only a tool that can help you with layout/ adding interaction.

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

We wanted to streamline our process for creative projects, get analytics about how content is preforming, and also add interactive elements to our content quickly and easily.

"Great but too obvious!"

What do you like best?

Ceros has a lot of advantages of creating well funtionning websites, with easy workflow for people who are designers. I like that it is fast to understand and really fast to learn its uses.

What do you dislike?

The only issue I encounter is that Ceros has a lot of functions that make the software obvious that it is Ceros, if that is your intention I have no issues. There is no problems on the funtion but when using the motion effects you can start to know that it is Ceros.

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

For my company this helps to ease the style and looks of the brand while giving a look of a more well presented website.

"Ceros"

What do you like best?

The creative flexibility with cool technology and ease of use.

What do you dislike?

I think there needs to be an easy manual page or something about different resolutions and canvas sized images upload into the ceros platform - for me the highresolution or large canvas didn't always upload as sharply or 100% like I thought it would.

I think theres some limitation with embedding. It would be cool if we could share within social sites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth, but as a designer I dont know anything about licensing/usage/price. But I wish we got to use it more!

"Bring your stories to life with Ceros"

What do you like best?

I like the interactive elements and how they can be used to bring certain stories on our site to life. We've used Ceros in the past for very immersive content to great success.

What do you dislike?

Some of the embeds didn't work or render properly, especially on mobile. Also, some of the content was pretty heavy in terms of load times, and significantly increased page load times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that it load times are not affected by Ceros assets and that it works well on mobile.

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

Sometimes we don't have the resources to fully build out interactive elements in house, making Ceros a better solution from both a technical and design perspective. The teams we have worked with Ceros have been pretty responsive overall, and helped flush out the concept and deliver a pretty great product.

"Beautiful and intuitive design, lovely people to work with"

What do you like best?

The inspirational projects that Ceros suggests! Yes the platform is beautiful, seamless, and easy to use, but also the company supports artists and creators and constantly has example projects to look into.

What do you dislike?

The software can be a bit buggy sometimes, but Ceros is very quick to solve these issues. Also sometimes you have to find workarounds for the fact that you have to be connected to the internet to present.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth a trial! Check it out and keep your mind open.

We are solving the business problem of having to engage an audience of people with short attention spans. I have seen that people are wowed by how unique the content is.

"Ceros is great but..."

What do you like best?

I like that the software is easy to learn if you know Photoshop.

What do you dislike?

It can't do a lot of what Photoshop can. It also can't do logic. The cost as well is prohibitive given that you can't keep your creations. You're renting software and a blank canvas for a pretty steep price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd take careful considerations about the cost for this vs just having an small agency create the same kind of thing that you can own.

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

The ease of updating an experience in real-time is awesome and very attractive as our numbers and metric change quite often.

"Fun!"

What do you like best?

Ceros is very easy to use. If you've ever used photoshop there's nothing to it.

What do you dislike?

Opposite of what I like. For anybody to use it, if you don't have experience working with a program like photoshop, there is a learning curve.

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

We are creating interactive content to blend the team with our merchandise.
