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

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

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.

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.

  • 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.

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'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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Input into our algorithm for brand strength and stature
  • Quick engagement tracking
