Bazaarvoice Platform

Bazaarvoice Conversations is well suited for almost any sized company looking to add reviews and a Q&A section to their website. They offer many solutions that can be customized through their thorough design and modification tools. For teams with internal development teams and a strong focus on specific interactions and appearance, it might be cheaper to go with a competitor with just and API integration depending on your needs

Khoros Care (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

Khoros Care is great for engaging customers, getting a clear picture of their profile and overall history, and integrating a large variety of platforms to maximize your accessibility. For both Care and Marketing, this is a top-notch platform that allows you to have almost everything in one place, and for those used to a more standard call center style format with their representatives, the workflow is fantastic. I would highly recommend this program to anyone that utilizes customer service and marketing, which is pretty much everyone. While not as useful to smaller companies simply due to not needing to manage such a large amount of interactions, it is still something I would certainly recommend moving to as you grow your digital footprint.

Pros

Bazaarvoice Platform

  • Our ability to answer questions on our retail partner websites in a timely manner. We constantly win awards from our retail partners for questions responded to in 24 hours or less.
  • Bazaarvoice Conversations gives us the ability to respond to all 1-2-3 star ratings and some 5-star reviews also. We welcome 1-2-3 star reviews as it gives us an opportunity to let customers know we are responsive to their issues.
  • Bazaarvoice Conversations is easy to train on for new employees. It is intuitive and easy to teach people how to get their job done fast which I as a manager appreciate.

Khoros Care (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

  • The platform works well to manage large volumes of inbound conversations with the different auto tagging and routing features.
  • The platform is very user friendly, which reduces the time required to train a Representative.
  • The analytics dashboard allows us to deep dive into many different data points. From inbound volumes, to Team/Representative performance, and command center displays, we are able to track our performance in the moment.

Cons

Bazaarvoice Platform

  • Recently there were some changes to some of Facebook's policies. This has made pulling content from Instagram and Facebook a little more difficult than it was in the past. We now cannot send automated permission requests to customers as easily as we could before.
  • It can get a little confusing when you are managing many different content channels with different rule sets. Initially we had a very complicated set up and found the dashboard a little confusing to navigate, but we have since trimmed down the complexity and have had no problems.
  • Occasionally it can take much longer than expected to hear back from the support team.

  • Given our scale and huge number of tags, the tool can lag at times. This slows the team down.
  • All reports are manual, it would be great to have automated reporting.
  • The time to agent response statistic does not take trading hours into consideration. This makes it much harder for us to report on our service level.

We are happy with the product and really just need to optimise our deployment of it on an ongoing basis. There is a lot of functionality prebuilt within Bazaarvoice which we want to have on our site, and to recreate this in our platform would take significant effort which is not practical for us.

I give Khoros [Care (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)] a 9 because 10 does not exist and there is always something to improve. But we are very comfortable working with Khoros and the platform resolves many of our problems related to reporting (Marketing + Intelligence) or Care.

I'm sure all processes and program can improve, however Bazaarvoice has reached a very easy usability level and hope this continues as the product improves over time.

The ability to auto tag, manually tag, make notes, and "snooze" posts is extremely helpful. The efficiency of the work flow for agents is also a huge plus. It keeps agents moving quickly and prioritizing responses for the cases that need it most.

The Bazaarvoice team is always available via call, email, or any other platform to provide help, guidance, or to push or ask for the task we set earlier. They are talkative and easy to share information and discuss issues if there are any. Thay may have more out of box solutions for easy implementation, but as a whole, and regarding support I am satisfied.

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

Bazaarvoice Platform

It's the most trusted provider and has the highest standards. It also has a user-friendly platform with all the functionalities we need. The other platforms lacked basic functionality, included reporting, filtering, saving views, and general maintenance. We found many issues with moderation and platform performance in our previous providers and decided that we needed to switch.

Khoros Care (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

Hootsuite, Sprout social were two tools we had used previously - they were certainly manageable for smaller-scale social media support, however, were largely no-frills and did not offer the level of depth in integrations and analytics that Khoros did. Workflow was also not up to scratch from an enterprise perspective.

I see the Khoros team bringing on new employees and different expertise as their platform grows to more brands. They are dedicated to ensure they are growing with their customers and building new products to fulfill the needs of their customers request

Return on Investment

Bazaarvoice Platform

  • This has had a positive impact on the way the company identifies user issues and complaints more easily/readily.
  • The negative impact is that departments seem to put a lot more expectations on our customers than this tool can provide (e.g., replies and follow-up), meaning that we aren't as able to provide additional information when requested.
  • It's uncertain whether responding to reviews adds a lot of value when all is said and done. Reviewers rarely adjust their ratings, even if/when we sufficiently address their concerns or resolve issues.
Joshua P. Kennedy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Khoros Care (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

  • Khoros 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 behavior 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 Khoros gives us as an organization, allowing more effective quality monitoring, development, and reviews to take place within the teams.
