DivvyHQ Reviews & Product Details


What is DivvyHQ?

The seeds of DivvyHQ started to grow in the trenches of digital marketing agencies. As the volume of customer content increased, Divvy’s founders realized quickly that spreadsheets and generic project management tools weren’t the answer. Daily pain sparked the development of a better tool, one that was specifically tailored for managing the unique processes of content strategy, editorial planning and creative production. DivvyHQ was born on September 7th, 2011. Divvy's unique functionality combines web-based calendars, content management and online collaboration to help global content teams plan, schedule and produce any type of content across an organization.

"Great content calendar"

What do you like best?

I like how dynamic it is. Being able to easily move around content from date to date is helpful to our program as we are trying to keep a steady cadence of posts going, requiring us to move stuff around. And I like that all the pertinent info for each post, the content itself, publish status, comments, and other important relevant campaign details follow each piece of content within the calendar.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that I need to re-sign in to the calendar every day. If there was a way to include the Divvy calendar into my single sign in process at work, that would be helpful. I'm in that calendar every day and it's a small pain to have to re-sign in every day. Also, being able to easily pull out quarterly/yearly metrics related to campaigns tied to data within the calendar would be helpful.

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

We are able to keep better track of our various campaigns in one place, quickly seeing what is published and what is not. This has then driven us be able to focus better on the cadence of our posting. And it's a great tool for quarterly and yearly tabulation of how our program is doing. The facts are right there.

"Lots of potential but clunky"

What do you like best?

I like the way it organizes all our content. You can sort by deadline, campaign, platform, content type, etc. so it's very easy to pull different types of content.

What do you dislike?

The number of emails it sends to me. I understand this is a setting that can be adjusted, but it's not clear which types of emails would be the most useful to get. It seems there must be a way to, say, if five events occur on a project within 10 minutes of each other, blend them all into one email and say "You have updates on X project," which would be easier to digest.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take plenty of time to sift through the types of content your company creates to understand the different templates you'll be using

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

As an agency, every account has different processes and ways of doing things and this has helped us all get on the same page.

"Divvy is great for small - medium sized teams."

What do you like best?

I love that in Divvy I can collaborate with members of my team. We use it mainly for social media purposes and planning/scheduling when we will post on which platform. Each platform has its own calendar. So it works really well that way as far as collaboration goes. I also like the difference between campaigns and calendar items. Campaigns make it much easier to see events that are taking place over the course of 2+ days instead of having a bunch of items listed for all the days.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that there isn't SLACK integration or some other form of notification rather than email. Although you can turn email notifications off or customize what your'e receiving email notifications for, it still isn't very convenient where having a SLACK integration would be for team collaboration. I also wish there was a phone app.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend this to Divvy for anyone who wants to better collaborate with their team.

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

We are solving so many business problems with Divvy! One of our biggest issues was knowing what we were going to post on which platform and if it would tie together with what other members of our team were planning for their platforms (we all work remotely). It also has helped us plan events in advance and get an overview of what our social media schedules look like. Divvy has also helped us put all of our business events in one place and eliminated many Google docs by doing so.

"Divvy HQ Has Made Our Team So Efficient"

What do you like best?

Being able to see multiple communication channels all at once has helped us plan so much better. Being able to get an idea of the full content plan across social media, our digital displays, newsletters, emails and seeing a full "campaign" has been a huge help in keeping us organized. I also love being able to easily move deadlines without issue. Before we used spreadsheets which were cumbersome and usually wrong!

What do you dislike?

I wish Divvy spoke to Constant Contact and that it had a photo library component where we could search for stock photos we have used before or possibly a library of photos to choose from. Would love to see outlook calendar integration as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great solution for those who feel scattered. if it's hard for you to see your full content plan without opening several windows, then this is a great product for you. I can't tell you how much more organized our team is. At a glance, quick reference and great documentation of past campaigns, I love this product!

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

Divvy has been able to streamline our content efforts, specifically with giving us a sort of task list by seeing what all needs to be communicated on a daily basis. Before we were checking 3 different spreadsheets. The calendar feature has made the process so much easier especially for our intern. It causes less confusion about what needs to be posted when and documents our communications much more efficiently. Love the search feature!

"Excellent Content Management Tool"

What do you like best?

I really like the way that DivvyHQ is set up and the user interface overall. It is easy to navigate and I appreciate that you can filter calendar views by content type because that makes it easy to knock out any clutter when you just need to view the upcoming deadlines for a specific platform. I also love the search function on DivvyHQ—it works really well and I am always able to find exactly what I'm looking for in a matter of minutes. The @comments and replies system is also a great way to talk to specific people within the platform.

What do you dislike?

I think it was a little overwhelming at first, only because there were so many options and views; however, like all things, I attribute that to simply needing to get familiar with the tool via use and experience. Once I started working within DivvyHQ it didn't take long to figure things out. One minor thing—I wish I could see the copy in the content tab without opening it up in editor.

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

DivvyHQ has been a great way for my team to work with our client on content production, despite the fact that we are not in the same office, or even the same city. We can quickly communicate with each other in the platform and we are able to keep everything organized and running smoothly. It's also provided us with a great way to log and save brainstorming ideas and thought-starters for future content planning.

"Flexible Platform Great for Planning Content"

What do you like best?

Very customizable so that you can mold your calendars and processes to fit how you need. Great for campaign planning and storing ideas and deadlines in advance. They also have some helpful webinars that the offer several times a month including new user training as well as advice on content planning.

What do you dislike?

There was a small bug that took them about a month to fix which was somewhat frustrating but they were at least communicative and responsive when I inquired about it several times. The interface could use some stylistic upgrades but it is definitely more built for content planning than other similar platforms like Asana and Basecamp which are more to-do list oriented.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's been great so far, I would recommend a trial of the product and it also seems to make sense to purchase via the annual contract rather than month to month.

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

Organizing our content months in advance by specific platform and keeping deadlines all in one centralized location. Haven't missed a deadline yet!

"DivvyHQ Helped Us Clear the Clutter -- and Stop the Emails "

What do you like best?

At my company, we have a lengthy approvals/review process. Now, instead of keeping track of many email threads or spreadsheets, we use DivvyHQ to manage our workflow and content calendar. A lot of how well it works depends on how your Divvy administrator sets up the customizable workflows and calendars. When set up well, it automates much of the content review process, updates multiple calendars, and sends any necessary notifications regarding deadlines or content changes.

What do you dislike?

I wish DivvyHQ had an app, because the site itself is not at all mobile-friendly -- which can be frustrating when we have executive on the go.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If your department or company is looking to organize your content calendar and automate workflow, DivvyHQ is worth checking out. It also offers a scheduling tool for social, but we have had better luck with other tools, because the way it's set up on divvy does not work well or the volume of posts we put out.

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

DivvyHQ has revolutionized the way my department (and soon, our entire company) approaches our review process. It has made us more organized, and given us more time to spend actually creating content instead of managing the review process.

"Great for Organizing Content "

What do you like best?

I like that I can see months of content planned out in advance. No excel sheet! It makes it very easy to rearrange calendars and to create a plan that easily flows into the following months. I also like that it allows my client to come in and comment on things as needed, rather than her having to email me questions or vice versa.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that there isn't a quick way to edit the dates or titles of campaigns. Our campaigns can be shifted as much as our content, so going into the campaigns sandbox for each one can become very time-consuming. The only other thing our team gets frustrated with is that an item's tasks aren't marked as completed when the item is published, this over time can create a backlog of items that slow down the platform/load time.

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

We work with multiple agencies to create content, DivvyHQ easily lets us put all of that together to make sure nothing is overlapping and that we always have the right amount of content to share.

"Useful and editorial calendar"

What do you like best?

DivvyHQ is a really useful editorial calendaring tool for our employee communications team. It enables us to quickly organise and reorganise upcoming communications, compare with other internal teams and get an at-a-glance view of campaign statuses.

What do you dislike?

There have been a few occasional, minor unexpected behaviours on the platform but these are rectified by the support team, who are very responsive.

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

DivvyHQ enabled us to introduce flexible editorial calendars for the first time in our new team. It enables better collaboration with other communicators and a more effective communication experience for our audience.

"Has helped with team communication"

What do you like best?

We love that DivvyHQ allows for our team, who is in office as well as on location/working remotely, communicate better. We have a blogging team as well as a video production team and it allows us to provide very detailed information so there are few questions when the project begins. Also having the ability to have reviewers is great! The owner of the company doesn't always want to be super involved in all pieces of content but now instead of asking us individually what we're working on, he can easily hop on and view for himself.

What do you dislike?

So far there isn't too much that we don't like. Sometimes the calendar doesn't allow us to change dates very easily (or it will move all of the tasks to one day instead of keeping them spread out on separate days) so sometimes it's a little buggy.

I used to have issues with the parking lot feature but that has recently been updated so it's easier to use now and bring into the calendar function. Sometimes, again, it's a little buggy but after a few tries it will navigate over.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a platform to have creative teams work on multiple projects at a time, this is a great solution. We looked into about 12 other platforms and this is the one we chose because of the way you can set it up for your customers/personas/channels to distribute to, etc.

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

Team communication. It has decreased how many weekly meetings we need to have to hold because much of the information can be found in the projects themselves including where to post to, who the audience is that it needs to be written/produced for, etc.

It has also really helped us schedule our content better from who is working on what, how much time it will take and when things will be scheduled to launch. Before, it was a bit of a chaotic mess as to when things would be published, who was doing what and what we could expect as deadlines. Now I, as the administrator, can set deadlines and hold my teammates accountable. I can see each day what has been published, what is past do and who is doing what next to make sure that we all keep on track.

"I Like Divvy"

What do you like best?

I like the calendar view with all of my tasks and deliverables. This view is the easiest way to keep track of my day to day tasks and lets me easily see what is coming up next.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that there is not a notification center in Divvy. This is something that stresses me out because I am concerned I will miss a notification and not be able to review something in time. I do get my notifications sent to my email-- but this is only if I am tagged in the comment.

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

I am on my email a lot less and working through divvy HQ gives me one base platform where calendars can go into.

"Excellent, useful product. "

What do you like best?

I like the comments function that allows us to track the production process for each content item, and keep all team members on the same page.

What do you dislike?

The inability to change the names of categories on the tool. For instance, we would like to be able to change 'Deadline' to 'Production Deadline'. Divvy doesn't have the functionality to customise category names.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a big team, and a large slate of content items, this tool is perfect to help pull your team together.

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

The biggest benefit is the ability to pull together a diverse team, literally spread across the globe, into being on the same page and working on numerous content items at the same time.

"Too many bugs to be launched"

What do you like best?

I like how you can tag people within the software.

What do you dislike?

When a user is deleted all of their data is deleted with them. That is terrible for archiving purposes are for ensuring that a new employee is on-boarded properly. The scheduling feature is equally as terrible, as the time codes given for each step of a process can give you completely wrong turnaround dates. When tagging someone or assigning them to a step within a task list, sometimes the timing of the feature is completely off, which is odd since assigning someone is something completely separate from the scheduling time coded feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Seriously consider this as this is an expensive software with tons of bugs.

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

Divvy helps us to request content from different groups. We initially got the software to ensure that we are getting everything completed and nothing falls through the cracks, but the more we use the software the more bugs we find. It is nice to be able to tag people, but with so many bugs, I honestly don't know if they will even receive the notification. Our company is a small to medium sized one, and we have to tell Divvy to fi bugs that we are constantly finding and then it takes weeks if not months for them to fix them.

"Divvy has features to manage your processes and workflows"

What do you like best?

By using Divvy I can easily check the current status of all the Projects which my department has been working on and also the one’s which are associated to me directly through Clients and vendors. So, I have an easy way of sending urgent responses needed from me through Divvy’s platform across various departments. While I am sending then messages, I also have an option to attach relevant files along with it and this process is flawless. The inclusive calendar in Divvy allows me to see every piece of content present in it on a single screen. There are filters available in the inclusive calendar to quickly customize the way I want to view my content.

What do you dislike?

It lacks in some of its features where there is scope of improvement like when I want to edit or modify a content, I am not sure if anyone else is also working on the same content and thus my changes or the other person’s changes might not get saved as there is no locking when modifying a content. This is a problem when we have around 1000 contents and it is not possible to assign a separate one individually to a single person.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Divvy has been designed to manage a complete project from workflows to processes, but it is not suitable for huge amount of content and is recommended for organizations having limited amount of content.

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

After using Divvy for a while now, I can surely say that it has made the work distribution to be streamlined among the co-workers. The existing workflows for the projects have been improved and they have customized as per our needs and requirements for different processes within the projects.

"Good Tool for Content-Heavy Businesses"

What do you like best?

DivvyHQ has really solid workflow capabilities for companies who are generating a ton of content.

What do you dislike?

This tools wasn't quite right for my team's use, as we needed more of a task-management tool for emails, campaigns, etc. vs. strict content.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely ask for a demo around the workflow set-up, and make sure your entire team using the product is on the call. We had some adoption issues with our team (it was a change management issue more than anything), so I would suggest making sure everyone understands the platform before your go-live.

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

DivvyHQ can help create custom workflows that encourage teamwork and ensure your content goes through the right process before being published. It creates accountability and allows you to visualize your content to understand where you are spending your time and effort.

"Very responsive"

What do you like best?

I like that if I have a question or comment, I get a response very quickly. While I think the product itself has room for improvement, I'm happy to stick with them along the way because they are about the customer service.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that there isn't a mobile app, nor does it work on my phone really. If I didn't sit at my desk 95% of the time, I'd have a hard time using Divvy.

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

I don't use all the capabilities of Divvy. I don't use the Ideas section or even campaigns or any of that. I use it for the visual, centralized calendar.

"Robust content management software"

What do you like best?

A lot of features, very flexible and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Feature-rich software like this is bound to be complex, so the learning curve for using Divvy is a little steep once you get past the basics.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

strong product, outstanding and fast support

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

Planning and sharing content calendar. It's helped various teams know what's coming up and also creates a great archive of the content.

"Divvy Up the Workload "

What do you like best?

If you're working on a team that produces content, then you need a tool to manage publication schedules. Divvy makes it easy to follow each piece of content as it moves through the publication process - from ideas (scheduled in a "parking lot") to managing versions of drafts and sharing the item with designers and specialists. You can message other users, tag/flag content for review and be totally transparent with other team members (or clients) about the production schedule. Divvy has become like another member of our team; we use it to pass content back and forth (with fewer emails) and seamlessly manager our workloads.

What do you dislike?

Divvy is a newer tool, and a bit glitchy (sometimes content items can disappear or not load correctly), but the staff is responsive and they are working through these issues. As time passes, the tool becomes more and more refined.

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

My team manages a full slate of blog and social content items with Divvy. Our clients and internal team members have enjoyed the visibility and ease of interaction that Divvy offers.

"Helpful tool for organizing our team's content"

What do you like best?

It's great that DivvyHQ offers the ability to attach all of the assets needed for each post, and to separate out everything by channel. Our community managers can go into Divvy and get everything they need all in one place, and I have the ability to see all of our content laid out in a fully inclusive, interactive calendar.

What do you dislike?

The duplication of posts is time consuming and has too many steps. It would be more helpful to be able to create a post across multiple channels at the same time while adding new content. We don't use the same copy and content at the same time across channels, but there is crossover, and being able to edit a post after the fact is much easier than duplicating an existing one.

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

We have multiple community managers for our different social channels, so keeping everyone organized is now much easier because of this tool. It also provides us with a place to have all of the components for each channel post in one place, so anyone can go in and see what's coming and get what they need.

"Calendar feature visually organizes our team"

What do you like best?

The calendar feature helps our team to stay organized. We can better visualize all the different elements we manage across multiple departments to fit content items into our schedule. We get more done, and we spend less time comparing our spreadsheet to a separate calendar. Plus, when projects get delayed, they're incredibly easy to move to a later date - and all the accompanying tasks follow nicely along. We're spending a lot less time getting lost in a spreadsheet and more time completing our projects.

What do you dislike?

I've been working in Divvy for over a month now. I've not found a lot of use for the pages other than the calendar and the content editors for our team. I spend most of my time looking at the calendar. I think once i get more into using Divvy I may find more use for those other pages.

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

DivvyHQ helps us by segmenting projects across our organization, keeping the silos in place where they're needed, and also sharing information across departments. We're able to manage our marketing campaigns for each department - scheduling emails, social media, press releases, etc - for an effective and successful result. We can duplicate calendar items, allowing us to save time when projects are repeated each quarter or month.

"Divvy HQ - Content Management"

What do you like best?

I love the color coding options and ability to organize content by client in a very visual way.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't much about this product that I dislike. Usability, visuals and overall function is great.

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

We are able to more quickly organize, draft and review content pieces in a team setting.

"Review from Creative Manager"

What do you like best?

DivvyHQ works well for workflow review and approvals. All team members receive email notifications for relevant projects and threaded comments are great.

What do you dislike?

The search is unpredictable, and I find that I don't use it. It's also tough to use for resource management. Instead, I supplement by using Trello for both search and resource allocation. It's manual duplication, but opportunity for future integration.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need an editorial calendar, I think this tool is helpful.

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

We needed a project collaboration tool. While helpful for workflow, it hasn't solved overall resource allocation snapshots.

"Great Workflow Tool, Reporting & Collaboration Abilities Need Work"

What do you like best?

Divvy is great at managing workflows and deadlines for each piece of content. Since workflows and processes aren't always the same across all content types, you can customize your workflow for each content type and its process. Even if there are two different processes for the same type of content (e.g., a webinar), Divvy is great at organizing all the steps, processes, and deadlines involved in creating different types of content.

What do you dislike?

If you manage content from contributors, whether from co-workers, external staff, or guest contributors, you have to add those contributors as official "team members" in Divvy if you want to track them in a reasonable way for later querying or exporting. If you don't add them as team members, you have to use "hacks" to get the data you need during export. Also, those contributors can't see all the great custom workflows you created or receive deadline notifications if they aren't official "team members."

From a reporting standpoint, Divvy is inadequate. It's not really built for exporting large volumes of data that you can later customize for analysis and reporting. For example, currently there is no way to export all the information that was ever entered into the system; there is no master record of data. So if you've just been hired as a new content marketing manager, you can't use Divvy to see all the content ever published by the company. You have no visibility, essentially. Also, there are times when I've had to export two different views in Divvy and then combine them in Excel to get one robust report.

Also, there are only 2 free-text fields that you can include in your export: the content title and content summary field. If I need to add information to a piece of content that isn't the title or summary (so I have it in the export), I have to basically hack the system into letting me do that. Right now I use pipe characters to separate my notes in those fields and then use Text To Columns in Excel once I've exported the data.

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

Centralizing marketing content and assets

Improving internal team collaboration and communication

Improving accountability

"DivvyHQ has been very helpful with keeping my team organized and on time."

What do you like best?

I really like that there are so many filter options in the calendar view. It makes looking at my work load super quick.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was an easier way to tell if there is an attachment on an item. Maybe by using the same numbering system that comments have. I also wish there was versioning and live editing of content pieces. We recently had something get deleted and it would have been nice to go back and see what was there. Also, live editing would allow me to make sure I'm always seeing the most recent content. Sometimes I'm scrolled down to see the content and don't see the message at the top about someone else editing the item.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time to experiment and learn how to use DivvyHQ properly, it makes a huge difference.

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

Scheduling and distribution of work have been huge with DivvyHQ. We've been able to streamline our process, and get ahead on projects.

"Great Way to Manage Team Workload"

What do you like best?

Our team loves the calendar feature, and it's great to manage collaboration and establish accountability for individuals collaborating on projects. Great for creating and maintaining version control, digital assets and our editorial calendar.

Divvy has been great about adding new features like the URL finished product link, great for organizations whose legal/IT teams don't want to integrate the push-to-publish feature with our other CMS.

What do you dislike?

Wish it was easier to create custom workflows for a preview view of the attachments within a file. Campaigns should be easier to build, would be great for mini calendars to populate with campaign specific content pieces and tasks - namely to give internal clients.

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

Solving workload distribution issue because now things are easy to see, manage, and transfer without email chains. Accountability and version control is great because it keeps people honest about deadlines and when to pass projects/content onto the next stage. Love the task manager and ability to create things that have privacy settings

"DivvyHQ helps keep content strategies organized! "

What do you like best?

DivvyHQ has been a great platform to keep all of our team's content organized. By being able to assign content to different members of our team and to plan out our content has been incredibly helpful.

What do you dislike?

DivvyHQ will occasionally glitch sometimes. We use the email notifications to copy check other team member's work and sometimes we don't always get the notifications.

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

As I said before, DivvyHQ has been a great platform to keep all of our team's content organized. Managing content for multiple clients isn't always easy, so being able to track all of it in one place has been incredibly helpful.

"Designer using Divvy"

What do you like best?

I'm a visual person so Iove that the calendar view organizes my tasks in visual way.

What do you dislike?

I wish somethings would default to a new tab and that "threads" had better formatting for paragraphs.

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

My company does content marketing so most editors here use it for content management, but I use it as task manager within that framework, which it also works well for.

"So much better than spreadsheets"

What do you like best?

Being able to see entire content strategy from a very granular level (individual contributor) and a very high level (management). Ability to post directly to social in same tool as you create your schedule and campaigns. Tagging and ability to generate reports of content created.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes slow loading times were an issue. A bit of a learning curve with how to use everything and find everything. Interface not as clean and modern looking as something like CoSchedule.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We would have gone live but for timing. We were in a proof of concept trial when a reorg hit, so we had to stop our trial.

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

Content marketing calendar, planning, workflow and scheduling. Benefits are for day-to-day as well as messaging up. Certainly helped with being able to get management to see the overall flow and strategy of when certain content was hitting and why.

"Shed the spreadsheet!"

What do you like best?

I like having everything in one place, instead of multiple spreadsheets/worksheets, and that you can attach docs/images, instead of directing other users to a shared drive

What do you dislike?

if you change calendars on a item, the subtasks don't change to match the new calendar - you have to add them manually.

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

being about to visualize the spread of content and where holes might be

"Need more color coding options"

What do you like best?

Calendar view, ease of moving items around.

What do you dislike?

Little control over visual cues for tracking. Was not useful for our workflow since we could not fully customize the set production workflow to fit our specific steps.

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

We tried Divvy as a tool to manage our content production/approval workflow with our internal team while keeping the status of each article visible to our client. It was not the ideal tool for this but I imagine it works well in other contexts.

"Simple Interface To Get You Setup"

What do you like best?

Divvy is great for content creators with teams of 3 or more working in Editorial. Especially if you have been working off of Google Docs to manage tracking and performance.

The interface is simple and direct.

What do you dislike?

Would prefer a more flexible dashboard on performance and output that curates all data. And perhaps incorporates design and editing notes or corrections that were needed for review purposes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use DIvvy to really focus on the content and have them see to the pipeline and workflow.

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

We have solved the issues of pipeline and lead-time as well as workflow and processing.

"Solid project manager"

What do you like best?

It's great to be able to automate our workflow for different types of content.

What do you dislike?

Every time they do an update, it seems like there is a bug that creeps in.

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

We can assign the different tasks to our different team members and easily see where everyone is with a content item.
