Verint Community (Telligent)

The Verint Community we have is well suited to our clients in that they are willing to share knowledge and build knowledge on the platform. The one area we see complaints are the default email notifications. These are expected on a social networking site, but not so much on a support site like ours.

Pros

Chatter

  • Chatter provides us with a live internal conversation for all to see without the noise that other mediums have i.e. e-mail.
  • One of the main features that really works well is the 'Groups' that you can join. We have multiple groups set up to not only distribute procedural changes and communicate news etc, but also have conversations around upcoming tasks in the months ahead.
  • Chatter works really well in instances where we need to look over historical conversations that have been had and the sentiment of those conversations with our shareholders, often using hashtags.

Verint Community (Telligent)

  • Open API allows for integrations and custom development work so that you can enhance the out-of-the-box features
  • Flexible back-end system administration and design elements that allow you to create the user experience that makes sense for your community and use cases
  • Strong discussion forum functionality with multi-level threading
  • Ability to create an online community that has public-facing groups and content as well as member-only, private, and secret groups.
  • Search is strong
  • While still not ideal, the reports/analytics are stronger than some other community platforms

Cons

Chatter

  • Groups does not have the private messaging functionality. Since most collaboration takes place in Groups, private messaging would allow for relevant conversations to be contained and not reside separately.
  • On a Group index page, there are two boxes for Information and Description. These content types seem redundant. You could replace both with a content type called About the Group. There could also be another box listing the Owners for quick reference.
  • On the main index page, the newsfeed has the same look and feel of most social platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Jive, IBM Connections, SharePoint. There could be an alternate display of tiles that shows People you interact with most frequently, Files you access most often, most recent Topics, etc. The display could be something like Delve in Microsoft Office 365.
  • On the main index page in the right rail, it would be useful to have the ability to incorporate RSS feeds to gather outside content. Many departments heavily leverage RSS feeds to compile competitive intelligence and cultivate general awareness.
  • For user profiles, can we combine Feed and Overview into one consolidated view? It would save users a click to find relevant information about the person. Also, the Contact module should also have the person's phone number for convenience.
  • The Files feature does not allow for real-time, concurrent document editing. You have to download the document, make your edits, save, and then upload a new version, which only allows for one editor at a time.

  • Permissions can be a bit time consuming since they must be set group by group instead of at an admin level.
  • Needs more options for integration that don't require significant technical expertise.

Chatter can fulfill at least 85-90% of our business requirements in an easy-to-use platform. Usability is a key requirement and we have had our share of bad usability experiences. In our experience, even the most novice users were able to pick up Chatter in a relatively short amount of time with little/no assistance.

It is easy to use but the impact of it feels like it is a bit antiquated. It does not feel collaborative and real time. Chatter is more akin to email versus Slack or Hangouts where it feels like problems are being solved as you are communicating.

Very usable once you learn some of the quirks - for example, when uploading a video you need to know it must be within a certain size limit or else the upload won't display, and if you upload it a certain way, then it will be a PDF even if you upload an Excel sheet. But once you figure out some of the nuances, its usability (ease of use) is very high. It is not a long or painful learning curve - just a matter of refining various use cases.

If I ever came to a situation where i needed help they do a very good job of getting back to us quickly to explain our error or why we are not seeing something. The support is quick to help provide groups or teams if you seek. Fortunately it is user friendly so I rarely need support

So far so good. We also worked with Social Edge Consulting to enable our Verint Community and would highly recommend their services

Alternatives Considered

Chatter

Skype is used more for audio calls. Chatter is used to track updates on items of interest in Salesforce. Chatter is deeply integrated with other Salesforce products. No other competing products come close. Slack is a traditional project management tool. So it does not compete with Chatter. Because of its close integration with Salesforce, it is a unique tool for Salesforce users.

Verint Community (Telligent)

As stated in my opening, Verint fulfilled all of our business needs and has the most robust out of the box functionality. Many of the other platforms require heavy customization for design and reporting. Telligent has a full library of drag and drop widgets and a theme studio that allows community managers to design group pages and update their theme without having to be technically savvy. Telligent also hosts automation rules that can be written to leverage the APIs to automate community processes. Reporting includes: Community health, Top searches, Searches with no results, Active/Viewed Content, Active/New Groups, Member participation and several more

Return on Investment

Chatter

  • Chatter has closed deals faster, and brought us in revenue at a quicker rate in turn.
  • Chatter has left some things undone simply because people didn't see it and it has cost us a few deals.
  • Overall, Chatter has brought us a cleaner, more efficient Salesforce process and brought in revenue because of organization.

  • Increased efficiency.
  • Support Queue reductions.
  • New clients expect to network with other clients so the Verint Community has become a sales differentiator in many cases.
