Likelihood to Recommend

Bambu

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

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is a good tool for brands or agencies who have a set list of competitors or subbrands that they are looking to do a monthly/weekly comparison of engagement metrics. When you have the brand account inputted, the data is shown in a visually tangible way and easy to comprehend.

Pros

Bambu

  • A very simple and intuitive UI (both desktop + mobile)
  • User reporting like "Leaderboard" reports which are key for wrapping an inventive program around employee advocacy for top performers
  • Product Management - in the time I've been using this platform the development team is constantly adding product enhancements and are very receptive to user feedback.

Cons

Bambu

  • I feel overall that Bambu is a great, cohesive tool. No major changes or updates needed that I can think of.

Pulsar

  • Unfortunately, when exporting data it is often hard to read in an easy format.
  • I've used other tools where you can get historical data once you put into the tool but Pulsar cannot do that.

Pulsar is not a complex tool by any means. The interface is updated and comprehensive, and I've used multiple tools in the past where the interface was very outdated and exporting data was often a difficult process since it was not well organized. The tool works well in visualizing complex data.

I have not had to reach out to Pulsar support before but my coworkers have and said the support was good.

Alternatives Considered

Bambu

It was similar in that it helped us push prewritten messages out to our team, but the UX/UI was far more dated and not as intuitive. It's mobile app also wasn't very useful; made it difficult to edit messages and would constantly need you to log back in. The two things GaggleAMP had over Bambu however was more comprehensive analytics and the ability to automatically push out social posts

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is one of the more updated platforms that I have used and the metrics exported/shown in the dashboard are accurate. I think that some tools report inaccurate metrics gathered from social media platforms due to the new APIs, something that often causes confusion and lack of clarity.
