Conversocial

From experience, you may ask the Conversocial team to make recommendations on licenses for larger vs. smaller social customer service teams. The need for support and the amount of usage you may get from the tool's robust offering may differ as a result of those precedents. The tool is adaptable in both scenarios it would seem.

Zoho Desk

As an educator in technology, many of my customers are not tech-savvy and they need a simple form they can fill in to start a support session and to have simple questions answered. Zoho Desk provides a system where the support person can record the issue and provide the solution by responding directly with the customer via a ticketing system. Once the problem is solved a resolution can be written and saved as an article for future reference as an education tool or self-support resource for subscribed customers.

Pros

Conversocial

  • Previous conversations: This is one of the main reasons why I personally love Conversocial over Hootsuite and other social media engagement tools. Conversocial pulls in all previous interactions we've had with community members and it helps us identify if we've already addressed their problem, if they are a detractor/advocate, and so much more. With other engagement tools, it's frustrating as a community member may repost the same thing over and over again, but at different time periods. If you're unable to see what someone has said in the past, we may waste our time replying to the same thing multiple times, or we also risk responding with the same general advice, when we could try a different approach.
  • Tags and filters: Conversocials use of tags and filters are extremely simple to use. They have shortcuts which help you easily assign a tag to an item and then you can easily pull up each of those tags within Conversocial itself or your can open up an external report. If my team is in a hurry and wants to quickly see a certain tag, we can use the filter option and within seconds we have all the information we need.
  • Simple shortcuts: Conversocial has several shortcuts that save my team a lot of time. One single button on my keyboard can apply sentiment and archive something so it's out of my way. I can also use shortcuts to apply a tag, assign an item, and do other tasks. It may seem like a small benefit but each second saved really adds up throughout each day and week.
  • Communication: As we know, technology has issues and every tech issue Conversocial has experiences has been handled extremely well. I've never encountered any issues contacting Conversocial, we're always notified when they are working on a solution and once the problem has been fixed. We also receive random pop-ups within Conversocial to notify us of known issues before our team experiences them, and when there is a new feature that we should be aware of. Their communication is always on point and it's great to know that we can always rely on them.

Cons

Conversocial

  • I would like to see an improvement in the reporting dashboard which is something I mentioned to Josh (the CEO) on a call back in April. He said that it is something they are working on but to remember that this is truly a customer service social media platform so some of the features that I would like to see may not fit well with the users of the product.

Zoho Desk

  • Integration with email is not the smoothest
  • Escalation rules take into account weekends but not holidays
  • Reports can be a bit confusing

Compared to systems used in the past, Conversocial is superior because of their excellent service and ability to integrate all of social media into one program, saving enormous amounts of time.

Because of the number of features it offers and the manner in which they're presented. I've explored a number of other tools that just don't do it as well. When sorting through and responding to hundreds of social media messages each day, the number of clicks it takes to do something really matters. Conversocial does a great job of minimizing clicks and presenting the data we need without having to click to find it

Although it is rather straightforward to navigate I did not find it intuitive when I am in a customer support call. The in-call notetaking feels a little disjointed and distracting when you are trying to take notes on an existing ticket once it has been submitted. I like how you can link calls received on your phone to Zoho Desk when you have the app installed on your smartphone. It seems that every feature I would want with this support tool is available however I find I have to learn where they are how to find them. This can be seen as a good thing in a product so feature-rich and would be even better if it was seamless to use.

Our account rep at Conversocial has set up a call with me every two weeks to check in, talk about new features, or answer questions. I know I can email or call her for help anytime. Their support team also responds quickly.

Zoho support, in general, has been very good and this would have to be extended to the Desk product as well. This is partly to do with the people hired to provide the support and you could say it is a good demonstration of the support software itself as it is used to provide the help when you ask for it.

Alternatives Considered

Conversocial

Early on we did comparisons with Hootsuite and later with Adobe. While they have similarities, the difference at the time and likely currently, was the personal interest and general accessibility of Conversocial's platform and people. The combination of an effective CRM solution and a team that was readily available to help proved to be the winning formula for our business.

Zoho Desk

Value for money simply beats the rest. Also, as part of the Zoho Suite, integrations are wonderful, for example to CRM or consolidating Reporting with other apps such as Zoho Projects. Integration to advanced Analytics is also very helpful. In terms of features, they are pretty complete. Easy to train and use

Return on Investment

Conversocial

  • On Twitter alone, tweets sent from @CBC (including @replies to followers) totalled more than 50,000 in the past year.
  • The average volume from other North American broadcast network was around only 4,000.
Dan Fricker | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Desk

  • It helped to reduce company's reponse time by letting employees when a new comunication started and who will handle it.
  • It helped to maintain private conversation between organization members to organize what to reply and do for customers.
  • Increased productivity by task assignment and keeping track of the organization data/processes
