Likelihood to Recommend

Brazen

Job fairs, resource fairs. May not be as well suited for conference that encourages networking among participants.

Socio

There are always plusses and minuses to various platforms and nothing is ever going to be a perfect fit for everyone. Socio does so much very well, but there are a few places, like the current way that presenters are cut off from attendees in the normal system that if that is what is most important to you, there may be better options. However, if you are talking about out-of-the-box solutions for an event of any size, their customer service puts them far above anyone else.

Cons

Brazen

  • My experience with Brazen has only been positive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Socio

  • The standard template to build out the community is pretty rigid. We had to adjust some of our styling and graphics to account for what Socio's template allowed.
  • Inability for event admins to make account changes for users. Several times we had users change jobs, therefore, changing their emails. Each time, we had to go through Socio support to get them access to their account.
  • Documentation and knowledgebase could be more substantive.

Alternatives Considered

Brazen

None of the other platforms could compare to Brazen. Brazen offers many features and we really needed a system we could automate, and that could integrate well with some of our other systems versus a stand-alone system. Brazen is much easier to use from both the job seeker's and recruiter's points of view.

Socio

We researched other products but Socio was the first company we chose to try and we have been with them since the start and haven't needed to or wanted to look elsewhere. Socio has been great for our company and they provide exactly what we need.

Return on Investment

Brazen

  • Filling various urgent need positions.
  • Decrease average time to fill positions aged 90 days+.
  • Positive response in candidate experience.

Socio

  • Socio has improved the ROI on my fundraising events by keeping attendees focus and housed in the event. With Zoom or random links attached they get lost in the web of distractions.
  • Attendees are easily able to connect with speakers, providers and others guests.
  • I can incorporate donation links, monthly giving, and silent auctions all in one easy-to-find place!
  • Sponsors do not feel left out! They can highlight exactly what they want and be engaged virtually!
