About Camayak

Camayak is an online workflow tool that provides content teams with an approvals process before publishing the content. It enables users to manage freelance writers and keep track of their assignments and pitches till publication. Camayak keeps track of conversations alongside content, which enables editors to give feedback in the system. Additionally, editors’ comments in-content are automatically stripped out when assignments are published. Users can also publish content to content management systems and other channels via an API. With Camayak, editors can plan upcoming responsibilities and deadlines in the dashboard ahead of time. Editors can check the newsroom for the news pitch ideas from writers, stakeholders, sponsors and anyone with access to the newsroom. They can also get pitches via mail from external contributors. Pricing is subscription-based depending on the number of user accounts.

Camayak enables a seamless workflow among my high school newspaper staff and our various...

Pros

While Camayak is tailored to provide an authentic newsroom experience with seamless pitching, collaborating, assigning, tracking, editing and publishing capability, it is conceptually similar to other more general-purpose products that students have likely used. This means that students can sit down and begin using it productively without wasting hours on training. It seems familiar to them from the start.

Cons

I think the product support could be beefed up, although I have to admit I haven't needed to use it recently. Connecting Camayak and a WordPress site, for example, is not an intuitive process, and it seems Camayak might provide more DIY support. features.

Makes the process of writing, editing and publishing a breeze

Pros

The workflow that is set up is one of the easiest to use and makes training students on this software a breeze. Really love its capability with wordpress and communications in the workflow process.

Cons

Would love the ability to connect facebook and Twitter to be able to publish on platforms and send out to our followers.

Good and helpful for our newspaper

Pros

The ability to see what everyone is working on and keep reporters in-check. Being able to provide feedback.

Cons

The fact that only editors can post to our Townnews website and the process it's difficult. Adding and taking out reporters from assignments is difficult at times.

Camayak has been an instrumental part of Lusso magazine's organisational and management...

Pros

I work for a high-end men's digital publication. Our team is made up of 4 permanent staff and around 30 freelance contributors. Camayak has not only ensured that everyone in the management team can see at a glance which assignments are outstanding, but it also tracks the progress of each submitted article through the proofing and design stages.
Often we need to distribute our luxury travel assignments on a first come first served basis and Camayak has simplified and streamlined the process for us. I found the customer support and response time to be second to none.

The Camayak CMS is a great tool to organize many collaborators on lots of platforms.

A stable and always available platform for creating and publishing all kinds of content into any website.

Pros

The management system is quite good for managing lots of collaborators that publish in many platforms. Multiple collaborations and publishing to more than one site is very easy with Camayak.

Cons

The text editor for creating the entries into the publishing platform could use a little bit of updating and easier highlighting to change text features or to add links. The upload system for files and images sometime hiccups.
