The best platform for your dollar

What do you like best?

Joomag is user friendly and allows the user to create each publication and page from the ground up, use PDF's or a combination of PDF's and creativity. It's managable, pages are maneuverable and all of my clients and readers love it.

What do you dislike?

Printing costs are astronomical. I would love to see that changed. as it is, I need to download each 2 page spread to PDF format to take a to a printer to create a magazine and something is lost when I do that. Not all of the pages are complete. Joomap price per piece, over $30. Local printer per piece about $4. I need oer 200 copies and cannot print through joomag.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The print to PDF feature has a flaw but they are making improvements all of the time.

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

The ability to toss away the PDF's lightens the load and the smart phone platform is invaluable.

Sleek and Simple Design for the non-Designer

What do you like best?

The sleek, modern look of the magazine with the page sounds brings printed publications into the digital age without losing anything. I love that the design tools provide templates to help get me started on my projects and that there are tutorial videos at my finger tips to learn quickly when I need to find something new.

What do you dislike?

I have a problem exporting my magazines to pdf every time. It either doesn't work at all or takes a long time. Additionally, I love the Getty images and istock photo access , but those databases also take a long time to load and can crash my whole project at times. I wish the photo cropping tools were more dynamic so I could crop to different shapes or have overlays to help change the look of the image from being rectangular all the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This program is great if you have a vision in your head but don't have the time to get new design software knowledge before implementing your communications. Joomag puts it all right there at your fingertips.

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

Accessibility to relevant content for remote employees, modernizing boring HR forms and information by giving it a facelift with design. We love the ability to collaborate on a document as a team with tools and ideas we never considered before.

Great customer support

What do you like best?

I've been using Joomag for the past 3-4 years and I always felt like that the people there are my friends due to their fast, friendly, and useful customer support. Their service (Online Magazine) is very good and where it lacks something they are usually aware of and trying to improve. I provided them with a lot of feedback over the years and they implemented some of it already in their service. Therefore, what I like the best is their customer support - in all honesty, I never encountered any customer support better than this one.

What do you dislike?

There are some features that I would really need from their service and they are aware of these because I told them several times - I hope they will implement them soon.

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

We create free educational books using their service and because their service is super easy to use and straightforward and have a great customer support, then it makes our job much easier.

Joomag's platform is powerful yet easy to use

What do you like best?

I like that Joomag provides me with all the tools I need to publish a high-quality digital edition of my printed magazine, and do it quickly. Their user interface is modern, clean, and easy to use, and after careful research I found that Joomag provides the experience I want for our readers. Their recent introduction of an HTML5 desktop viewer is another feature I value, and it shows the company is working to make its platform even better.

What do you dislike?

The pricing for additional storage, connecting external domains, etc can get to be a little high when you have a large quantity of magazines to publish.

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

Joomag allows our readers to access a user-friendly digital edition of our magazine, which especially stands out as the market leader on mobile platforms. That translates into increased exposure for our advertisers.

Outstanding support for an excellent product

What do you like best?

The flexibility of the platform allowing us to create innovative material for our readership

What do you dislike?

Small changes to the system that aren't well communicated to the end user

Recommendations to others considering the product

I selected Joomag over many other similar platforms because of the excellent support received during a trial period. The product is intuitive, and not prone to crashing using heavy use. The additional of the CRM was an added bonus that has allowed us to communicate with our readership base at a consistently high level. This can be verified by the lack of unsubscribers we have seen.

The level of support we have received has been outstanding. The limited number of challenges we have encountered have been dealt with quickly and professionally. The support team have even adopted and submitted a number of end-user enhancements we have proposed.

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

Direct communication with our readership via CRM

Joomag & Education: Great product, Great Uses

What do you like best?

Joomag is versatile, intuitive, and easy to learn. We've used it for a number of years to publish a professional education journal. Gives us an additional on line presence and looks VERY professional.

What do you dislike?

On line reading can sometimes be slow to load for some of our subscribers.

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

Used this for a number of years to publish our professional journal in reading. Helps us to stay in contact with members. Members often remark about how professional looking the journal is. Also hope to explore classroom use of joomag at some point. Think it would be excellent for use with my after school students. FYI- all board members of Missouri State Council of the ILA (International Reading Association) are unpaid volunteers. We have been using this product for several years.
