We’ve learned that good things take time.

About Hero Image

We started managing contributors in 2010 and felt there had to be a better way than by forcing editors to spend their days buried in spreadsheets. We tried CMS plugins, generic task managers and finally decided to build our own system.

Journalism programs at community colleges in California became our first customers and we went on to support B2B newsrooms, agencies and blog networks, before becoming a fully remote team ourselves with thousands of editors relying on Camayak every day.

We support the most dedicated managers, editors, reporters and photographers out there. Every minute of their time is valuable and we work tirelessly to back them up with efficiencies that have earned Camayak compliments like this:

“Camayak has been an excellent tool for our remote news team. Working on different continents and in different time zones can be challenging, but we have established smooth workflows that work for everyone.”

About Feature Image

So, is Camayak a CMS?

Camayak is more of a workflow hub than a traditional content management system. It acts as a back-up CMS by storing all approved assignments, as well as collaboration data.

Most people think of a CMS as something that takes content and then displays it somewhere. Some great CMSes have improved how we display content, but aren’t really built for managing people. We tend to leave that to emails, Slack, Google docs or expensive content marketing software.

Camayak is a lean, efficient, bolt-on system that editors use to receive, improve and approve content to wherever it needs to go, in a fraction of the time and (for some of our customers) at huge scale.

Why is this better than the free tools we already use?

We built Camayak after we asked ourselves:

How much time do we lose each week, chasing incomplete information about assignments?

How easy is our process for new writers and editors to understand in less than 5 minutes?

How visible is our collaboration to the rest of the team, so they remain motivated?

Since we launched in 2010, we've helped thousands of editors, advisors and contributors get more from their workflows.
