Chartbeat is a time-proven market leader in content analytics solutions. It has been rocking the market for way longer than other players and has, as a result, developed a massive market share and a loyal base of end users. Chartbeat, undoubtedly, provides a solid value proposition to those willing to benefit from the insights content analytics software can offer. Yet, for a more demanding client, there are tools like IO - the ‘master’ alternative to Chartbeat - that, arguably, already provide a better value proposition. It is that IO Technologies has found aspects where market leaders’ products were not up to date with the dynamically changing and digitizing fields of news editorial and media production.
The world has changed massively in the past few decades. One aspect of that change is how recent technological developments have transformed the business of media publishing to the point where it’s no longer recognizable. IO believes it knows exactly what the interplay between ongoing developments in social, technological and media production fields is about. Markets evolve, customers evolve, data evolves, content production evolves, and so should best software for editorial teams. Online content publishing businesses could not imagine being successful without using Chartbeat for a long-long time. What is Chartbeat, you ask? It’s a tool that has more recently conceptualized and recently developed tools, Chartbeat alternatives like IO, not on the horizon, but already here, up and rolling.
Chartbeat has been on the market for way longer than other players, which means that the value its editorial business company clients receive is hard, yet admittedly possible to beat. IO’s pricing starts at $375 per one month and, coupled with additional features that virtually no other editorial dashboard has, provides, in our opinion, a significantly superior deal to Chartbeat pricing, of which many have heard, but little have known. We believe we are rightfully among top Chartbeat competitors, and, based on Similartech data, IO is actually a No. 1 contender.
