Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Social

Adobe Social is not worth the money if you are looking for a publishing or moderation tool. If and when the reporting is improved, it could be worth a second look.

LSMM is well to suited to our organisation, given our requirements. I wouldn't say the tool at this stage is not designed as a reporting tool, therefore, reports can be completed but as mentioned this is a manual process. Also, worth keeping in mind that you may not be able to integrate other systems as this did come up for us when we wanted to integrate our product listing system. However, we don't believe other tools are doing this at this stage either. This is something we have come to expect from a CRM call centre tool. Overall, we find LSMM serves all of our most important requirements

  • Moderation Dashboards
  • Customized Dashboard Feeds

Khoros Care (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

  • The tool is extremely user friendly which has been so important for us. Our community manager roles are relatively high turnover and being able to train both agents and experts quickly and easily is so beneficial.
  • Adding or removing tags is very easy and gives us the flexibility our organisation needs to constantly update what we are reporting on.
  • The expert function gives the team the ability to resolve a case in one place, making the process far more efficient.
  • Templates are really easy to add, which is again very important for an organisation of our size. Having templates that are easy to search for and add is another function driving efficiencies for us.

Cons

Adobe Social

  • Updating the #'s. Sometimes I would have to wait a day or two for this update.
  • Faster responses: I would have to wait at least a day or two to hear back from customer service.
  • Layout: sometimes the layout of things was hard to find.

  • When raising bugs with the Lithium support team it can often take a long time for the issue to be resolved.

I wasn't in charge of making the actual management decision, but I would absolutely renew Adobe Social. As I mentioned, it provides strong and in-depth analytics and listening tools. The reports that it generates are very thorough and easy to read. I loved the platform and would recommend it to anyone

We just renewed our contracted with LSW and committed to a two year agreement instead of a one year agreement. This speaks to the confidence we have in the product and the employees who create the feature enhancements. This is one of the few companies that allows engineers or management teams to speak right to the customer without going through their sales rep or company contact. The innovation that comes out of this group is nothing short of amazing. We had a special project that we needed to have completed for the SOCHI Olympics and sure enough Lithium was up for the task. They created an early warning system that is now being used throughout the company. I am extremely happy with the product and firmly believe you would be too if you gave them a chance. They truly understand multiple setups and business needs and functions

Social moves at the speed of light, Adobe Social doesn't. I found posting via the system very cumbersome.

• The UI is extraordinarily well designed. Particularly in the analytics area, the charts and graphs are beautiful. Not only are they amazing visually, but they make trends and actionable data instantly apparent.

The Adobe support team is really helpful. We have recently gone through a number of account reps since our favorite rep was promoted off of our account, so we are hoping for better service in our newest rep.

Training was long and a little confusing. While a number of features carried over, they were still covered in this elongated training. It would have been nice to have training tailored to experience level with the product.

Implementation

Adobe Social

Based on 1 answer
The implementation was done during our POC. We had a very mixed experience here, and have had some issues arise since based on the way the tool was implemented. An Adobe employee went ahead and made a change to our account that was unauthorized (helpful for our implementation) which caused issues in on boarding another team who needed the same change, but could not get it done without costly Adobe certification

I was very satisfied. It was very smooth as they know what they are asking for. The requirements gathering was smooth. It was a short cycle. Deployment just took a couple of weeks.

After doing a deployment and a release, my recommendations would have been to mine more of our tags, words that I’m looking for, i.e. to pull in a bigger vocabulary from our historical cases of searchable words and phrases. When we eventually did this, it made the system run so much better. We just sucked it out of old cases and run a report which dumps into spreadsheet

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Social

I use Social Studio currently at my job and I believe both are very similar products. Adobe Social has stronger analytics, including revenue and leads generated. Social Studio's layout is a little easier to navigate. Although it has its bugs too. Overall both platforms are great, but I definitely give an edge to Adobe Social in analytics

I have had most experience with Radian6 from Salesforce, where conversations are easily managed. However, the abilities and capacities that Lithium has far exceeds that offer. Particularly notable is the author profile, where you can add specific account-related information for each customer, easy to keep track away from the social platform you are responding in.

Return on Investment

Adobe Social

  • Combination of Omniture and Adobe Social help to connect the dots between social engagement and site activity, leading to greater insight into the buying trends of customers.

  • Lithium Social Web has had a massive impact on our Social Support strategy. There's nothing like it that we've seen out there that comes close to the capabilities that this platform has. It is an extremely robust and powerful tool which is always growing.
  • We've been able to reach more customers quicker on Social and listen to more content than before using Social Web. This greater reach has had a profound impact on our customer behaviour with many choosing to use Social as a first point of contact. Growth in certain channels such as Twitter as a result has been exponential.
  • Like many businesses we measure a lot of data, specifically focussing on NPS and how easy it was to achieve your goal. This approach is enhanced by the data that Lithium Social Web gives us as an organisation, allowing more effective quality monitoring, development and reviews to take place within the teams.
