Bambu has been helpful to shift our culture from one of reluctance and fear related to social media to one of acceptance.

Cons

  • It would be great to have the opportunity to view feeds. I don't think this is what the developer had in mind when designing the interface. The interface appeals to me--feeds would be a nice option.
  • At first, I was unsure how to review conversations, but it was not a steep learning curve.
  • The demos for some of the platforms I reviewed include support for promotional campaigns. This feature appears to missing from this product.

  • The ability to add stories from the app.
  • A clearer single-sign-on experience.
  • The ability to better sort teams.

Alternatives Considered

AgoraPulse was our choice between the 3 so far, however AgoraPulse can learn from Sprout's listening functionality and reporting from our experience.

Location, understanding of social media as a field (particularly their tie to Sprout Social) and user experience.
