GatherContent vs Trello + G Suite for Content Operations

Replace ill-fitting tools with a single platform, designed to plan, create and manage high volumes of content.

GatherContent vs Trello + G Suite

The biggest difference is we are purpose built!

G Suite alone lacks the project management features that high volume content creation demands which is why some teams tack on Trello to try and fill the gap. GatherContent was built specifically to support the process of producing high volumes of content with multiple people involved, with bespoke features to make this process run smoothly. High volume content creation is complex, make it easier with a purpose built tool.

The benefits you only get with GatherContent

One platform instead of five tools

GatherContent allows you to manage your content operations from draft stage to published, all from one platform. To replicate this functionality with Google Suite, you need to use an array of tools: Google Docs + Sheets + Calendar + Gmail, with Trello tacked on for project management.

Structured content

When content is created in Google Docs authors are given a blank slate without guardrails for structure and length. In contrast, Content Templates in GatherContent remove ambiguity and speed up production by making it crystal clear what content needs to be produced.

Content workflow

One of the biggest challenges that comes with creating lots of content, is keeping track of the content status. To manage content workflow in Trello you would likely create lists that your content needs to sequentially move through but for high volume projects this lacks the birds eye view of how much content is at each stage of production. In contrast, Content Workflow is built into the heart of GatherContent so that wherever you are in the platform, you can clearly understand content status, what needs to happen next or if you have any production bottlenecks.
