Talkoot is an excellent tool

Talkoot is essential to my job. I use it every day, and without it, I could not do my job.

Pros

Talkoot makes it easy to write, edit and deliver ecom catalog copy at a high volume. It makes it possible for multiple members of a creative team to play critical roles to ensure the copy that is delivered is accurate, well written and free of errors prior to delivery. It also helps in the seamless transition and tracking of copy from the point of order to delivery.

Cons

Talkoot has a lot of features that can be difficult for novice users to access.

Easy content collaboration with lots of helpful features

Pros

It's flexible and easy to customize for your own purposes. As a write, I enjoy using it. It's clearly designed for writing, with lots of open space and an uncluttered interface It's a centralized online space for collaboration - ideal for use with lots of remote contractors and clients located on another continent. It's easy to organize all your information and assets in one place. The Talkoot team is very supportive and responsive whenever I have a question.

Cons

I would appreciate more drag-and-drop functionality than is currently available. The spellcheck tends to be a little buggy (from what I've heard, this is an issue they are actively working on).

Optimizes Your Content Workflow

Our clients love the platform as it saves time on their end as well. No more miscellaneous Excel sheets that both teams need to keep track of - it has also saved our team so much time in the writing process as we are able to better access previous copy and categorize accordingly.

Pros

Catalog organization and content management is the key benefit of this tool. It has cut down our copy production time mainly in the reduction of time it takes to organize information, write consistent copy and send iterations back and forth to clients.

Cons

Currently no access to Amazon to upload content, but I think something is on the way.

Difficult Learning Curve, High Potential

For my use, Talkoot is a very powerful tool and with the right upgrades and iterations I feel that it could be absolutely essential.

Pros

Using Talkoot for eComm project management removes a lot of strain from the process as well as client-back-and forth. The tracking features, search features, and overall capabilities offer many valuable solutions for the workflow.

Cons

Speed is the main issue in Talkoot. Often times it's easier to work from a separate doc than the in the software itself. It's often difficult to find what's needed, partially due to how granular the search functions are. Overall, if the platform was more user-friendly, intuitive, and most importantly fast, it would be extremely valuable. Right now too much onus is on the users to be experts rather than roleplayers.

Talkoot helps us do what we do best

Pros

I was project-managing in the Excel days and can't even imagine working that way at the volume Thread operates today. The Talkoot interface is intuitive, so our writers can concentrate on the writing and not on the software. And the more advanced features behind the scenes help our PMs keep everything moving along smoothly. The data integration with client systems is dreamy.

Cons

I'm not in love with the spell-check function, but in the scheme of things that's a very small quibble.
