Birdeye

If you want to increase online review volume and ratings while saving loads of time, Birdeye will do that for you. Small or large business, Birdeye can support you. Birdeye does not include support for all 3rd party review platforms based on the policies of those platforms; however, Birdeye is willing to work with its clients and aggregate 3rd party data into their platform so that you can stay on top of your reputation and client needs without the need to spend time always heading to those 3rd party websites.

Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

Khoros Care is great for quick responses on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, which are our three most used platforms. Based on what I have seen, it would be better to have a more in-depth review module that allows for better response capability. Right now, it seems that Khoros Care only allows us a bird's eye view of sentiment and issues, versus handling all responses across various review platforms.

Pros

Birdeye

  • Their support is excellent. Always fast and efficient.
  • Implementation was easy and fast. You are assigned an implementation manager to get everything connected.
  • Birdeye is constantly innovating and creating new value through added features and functionality. They're much more than just online review curation.

Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

  • Manages and pulls in posts from communities, Facebook, and Twitter so we can address them in one place as opposed to logging into each site natively.
  • Khoros Care has great analytics. I like the customizable dashboards; we use them for weekly reports to upper management.
  • Khoros Care helps our social media manager manage and monitor our teams.

Cons

Birdeye

  • It would be nice for Birdeye to work with product reviews. Currently they're about business reviews only.
  • Is there a way to get BirdEye to sync with Amazon? Product reviews on Amazon would be huge.
  • The integrations are generally easy to add, but it would be nice to have a WordPress addon that makes it happen seamlessly.

Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

  • More options to customize the default templates for the smart views in analytics or the pre-made one for work queues and agents
  • Automated and customized exports from analytics without the need to use APIs
  • More granular priorities or prioritization methods (like a point system)
  • More metrics to prioritize conversations with, like answer speed of the author, time waited since last answer, custom attributes, etc.

    I don't see any reason why we would not renew. We have had a great overall experience, and other than some support concerns, everything has run smoothly. In addition to the platform, our experience with the bot has been really good. We average between 25-30% of our volume handled by the bot, while still maintaining easy-to-use offramps for customers.

    Usability

    Birdeye

    Birdeye is very self explanatory. It makes it very easy for our team to manage . We are able to use on our laptop along with our phones. My clients love that we an send the link though a text . It has been easy to navigate the platform weather is reviewing reviews to requesting help from help desk.

    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.

    Support Rating

    Birdeye

    Support can always be better. I feel like there are shifts in leads at Birdeye all the time and it's hard to create a relationship with someone only to then be told you're being re-assigned. Would be nice to stick it through with someone for more time than a year or less. Not sure of the varying degrees of support and what's offered based on how much you spend with Birdeye, but that seems to be a heavy factor on the outside looking in.

    The implementation was very easy! They work diligently to ensure that everything that you want to monitor is put into one place eliminating the worry of missed interactions and as needs change the ability to edit what's being searched for is quick and easy to set up.

    Alternatives Considered

    Birdeye

    There is no comparison to Birdeye!! We have used 2 other reputation management companies in the past. We always had to ask every patient that came in to please take time to go online and give us a review. That was always met with a "look" from the patient and the staff felt uncomfortable asking. With BirdEye we don't have to do that any longer! They do the work for you, seamlessly and effectively, therefore, making our staff and patients happier.

    We previously used Hootsuite. Hootsuite was very clunky for Customer Service, and oftentimes it would end up that agents would accidentally step over each other, send out multiple responses, or struggle to identify posts to work. Hootsuite was more intended for marketing and struggled at times with response. However, Khoros Care is a good balance of both, and also has tools specific to marketing versus customer service. Additionally, Khoros now has far more platforms than we previously had in Hootsuite.

    Return on Investment

    Birdeye

    • All Positive ROI - It's simple
    • As a re-seller, it's all residual income, sell it once, train them, your done.
    • Even if we manage it as a re-seller, once you know the platform, you can pay a college student pennies to send out the campaigns or train clients. As an owner, I recommend it, my clients take my expert opinion, I'm done.

    • Less overheads due to automated features in the tool.
    • Stopped using external survey tools and used care CSAT surveys, this resulted in cost-cutting.
    • Saving time by responding to customers quicker.
    • Ability to manage different channels in one platform and unified reporting.
