Calibre

Calibre is the right tool if you have a a need for a shared knowledge management system whereby users can collectively access a shared pool of digital content. It eliminates scattered resources that your user base may have and replaces them with a single repository with version management that serves all major devices. The only situation I wouldn't suggest using library is when you have vast digital media libraries that contain DRM. Calibre doesn't handle DRM well. We've largely avoided this problem because our library is from DRM free publishers.

Khoros Care (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)

Khoros Care is great for managing and pulling in customer posts from the community, Facebook, and Twitter. Saves us a lot of time and effort by letting us address our customers from multiple social media in an easy interface. It's also great to allow multiple agents to discuss a customer's case using the internal notes and conversation reassignment feature. The snooze feature is a personal godsend; it lets me space out reminders for the many cases I juggle at a time.

Cons

Calibre

  • The UI is ancient and was cumbersome even then.
  • The intelligence of the converter for PDF to ebook is very hit or miss and doesn't always produce satisfactory results.
  • It requires a physical connection to your machine. This would be the perfect tool if it had remote cloud-based operation.

  • Khoros does a good job of continually making updates to the SMM platform and typically address "wish list" items from our Team.
  • There are some areas within the mobile app that could be improved such as being able to tag a conversation and adjust reporting date parameters.

We just renewed our contracted with Khoros and committed to a three-year agreement. This speaks to the confidence we have in the product and the employees who create the feature enhancements. This is one of the few companies that allows engineers or management teams to speak right to the customer without going through their sales rep or company contact. The innovation that comes out of this group is nothing short of amazing

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.

Not only has the customer support for Calibre been great, but the community surrounding it is great too. Users are ready and willing to jump in to help you solve a particular issue you're encountering with Calibre. As a result, I've expanded what we do with Calibre quite a bit through community support of its plugin infrastructure.

The team received training (from the same executive team member who has been supporting us) over the web and this was of very high quality.

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

Calibre

Calibre, like Acrobat, offers the user the ability to be able to view a digital ebook whether from online or off-line. But Acrobat can only open PDF files. Calibre can open & convert multiple digital file formats.

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.

Social media teams can range from small or large teams. But one thing that is consistent is that social media professionals get asked to do a lot. Having a tool that helps your team, no matter the size is very beneficial. It'll grow with you and allow you to further develop your company's social media.

Return on Investment

Calibre

  • Saves hours of time each week.
  • Updates as we need so we're always at the industry standard.
Julia Dye | 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.
