Fileboard is great for all sizes of sales organizations and very useful for those utilizing Salesforce. Their pricing is more affordable than competitors and their people are less pushy. My advice would be to demo the product and see if it fits your needs before looking at the more established and expensive competitors.

PTS: needed to bring a new senior marketing team member up to speed on how we got to our current TV campaign Solution: Series featuring consumer insights, why specific spokesperson, agency brief, the entire creative process - scrips, animatics, rough cuts, feedback, and testing at each step. Including the actual creative from each step. Total time to build: 1 hour
PTS: things get lost, findable but version control Solution: everything in one placeConcepts, testing, IHUTs, verbatims, videos with transcripts. Reduces the possibility of missing something, helps with any builds (reuse), but gives us a the chance to dig deeper. Example: search on terms like "indulgent", or "crispy" or "share" much faster Total time to build: 1 hour Read full review Pros Excellent tracking of email and alert notifications Great sales analytics that helped forecasting The live demo function was extremely helpful Tight integration into Salesforce Read full review Quickly reach out to whatever employee segment you want to reach by posting a topic and it will send a notification to everyone in that group with a link to the posting. Bloomfire saves all of the previous posts so in your free time you can go to the site, and explore the various range of topics others have posted. The information on there will only be as good as the person posting it, but it will be people within your company and industry posting it. So it will always be helpful. Bloomfire is a place to be noticed by your peers. Have a great topic you want to express, my company allows all to post there as long as we keep it professional. So you can share your ideas or experiences in a safe and productive manner. But we do have some fun on there too! Read full review Cons My experience with Fileboard has been less than ideal after making the switch from a very similar product. Our sales team as well as our operations team has experienced a number of stability issues on calls with our prospective customers to the point that we are looking for alternative solutions before our contract with fileboard has even expired. I received more complaints from my team in 6 months using Fileboard than 2 years using a competing product. We attempted to part ways mid contract and request a refund for unused access but were rejected and accused of blackmail after I provided two possible outcomes to our situation. One being private resolution and parting ways and second being an honest assessment of my experience with Fileboard and wishing we had stuck with the slightly more expensive solution. Read full review I would recommend adding a feature to combine different posts/series by job title (so in addition to the Revenue Ops category, there could be a structured walkthrough for Revenue Manager). Live Q+A sessions for group onboarding initiatives. Ability to label bookmarks by priority/job type. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

Most likely we will renew, our team needs a refresher on possible opportunities to advance our usage and learning of opportunities to move this answer to a 10, can't live without it.

Bloomfire is an easy-to-use platform for posting information and asking questions of my peers. It also has a user-friendly search capability. Yet like any other CMS, the secret to success rests in such items as the ability to use metadata to tag content or posts, and Bloomfire provides a wide range of options to make posting content and subsequently searching for it.

I have not needed to pose questions to the support team yet, as it is a very simple piece of software to use, however, its help documents and the bot ready to answer questions let me know I am in good hands. The help center could load a little quicker, but that's my only complaint.

I like Bloomfire because it is more concise with the work I do whereas Google search engine would provide broader information. It has just been so user-friendly, and easier to use [than] I could have imagined. I would use this program over any other that I have tried in the past.
