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 Platform

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.

Cons

Bambu

  • Currently Bambu only supports LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter - would be nice to see other social platforms in the mix.
  • Story editing tool is pure WYSIWYG, would like to be able to see an "edit text/html" feature.
  • Would like to be able to customize HTML email template (for digest, newsletter, etc email templates) to our brand specs

Pulsar Platform

  • 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 The interface is updated and comprehensive, and I've used multiple tools in the past where the interface was very outdated and exporting data was often a difficult process since it was not well organized.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.

Pulsar Platform

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.
