Maghub Review

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

I was on the fence with Maghub vs. their so called competitor. I regret that I went with the competitor at the time. Two years later and incredibly frustrated with their competitor I called Maghub. From start to finish, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] were true professionals and truly cared about my business and how the transition would work. There's always a learning curve when you switch to new software, but for me it was like someone finally turned on the lights! The platform is very user friendly, I love the app and I can't rate their customer service high enough.

Pros
Honestly, I love everything about this software.

Cons
Zero complaints. Their customer service is top-notch, so if there is something you don't understand or need assistance with - they are right there with you. They listen to your feedback, I forget what I wanted functionality for but it wasn't an option. A quick call to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and within days they had programmed that feature for me, at no additional cost. That's what I call listening to the customer.

Maghub is a one stop program for us. I don't have to go out and find different programs to run different areas of the business. I especially like the team of developers that continually improve the features and really jump in when there are new requests to develop. This helps keep the business moving.

Pros
The well rounded software that allows us to use the same system and information to flow from prospecting to ad sales to collecting materials to page planning, billing and collections. Maghub also allows our Editorial teams to track the assignments, costs and payments to freelancers or internal employees. the software also allows us to maintain our Circulation and Distribution lists as well. since all the information is in the same system, we reach maximum communication thru out the organization efficiently.

Cons
Documentation of features and settings. The documentation doesn't tell you how settings may effect things in the future.

MagHub is not worth the time and money

Used daily for 6-12 months

We haven't solved any of our current procedural problems. The system takes longer and costs too much money

Pros
Not much. However, the technical support is very involved with trying to solve your problems in a timely manner.

Cons
Too technical. Too many ways to achieve one outcome that makes it terribly confusing. Too analytical for selling. Sales is a relationship built with your client. This makes the salesperson a telemarketing robot and that never achieves high sales results.

Response from Aysling


Hi there, thank you for your review of MagHub. We will be reaching out today to see how we can make sure MagHub assists with your current procedural problems. We're glad our support team has been responsive, and we have no doubt our system will better assist your salesperson's day to day activities.

MagHub has a very energetic and dedicated development team that continues to expand and improve the functionality of the software on a monthly basis. Their customer support team is extremely responsive and delivers support whenever it is needed, which is not what I have found with another magazine management software company.

Pros
When it comes to the daily management of magazine production and sales, there are not very many softwares that specialize in it. Of the handful that I researched, I chose MagHub because it had the necessary features with an attractive layout at a very reasonable price, especially a pretty well developed mobile app functionality.

Cons
There is nothing that sticks out in my mind about MagHub that I don't like.

Our Sales, Finance, Marketing, and Production, departments are all integrated and working together!

Pros
Product is user friendly and was great working with the MagHub Team to implement.

Cons
Reporting can look a bit too much like excel. However after adding in a few other features we have brought our reporting system in to a dashboard.

Response from Aysling


Thank you for your detailed response! We're glad MagHub has helped bring all of your departments into one platform, and that is the true goal of MagHub! We're also glad our team has been helpful in your endeavors and that you were able to bring reporting into your dashboard. With our new dashboard being unveiled shortly, you'll have even more flexibility!
