GaggleAMP
GaggleAMP is well suited when you want to get timely local language content out to folks in other countries/regions, or content for a specific group/department. It is also well suited when you have multiple Gaggle content managers with multiple content calendars. It might be less appropriate if you want to hold multiple Social contests (gamification) with different rules, scopes, leaderboards, etc. for different groups/tags as there is only one leaderboard.

I'm honestly not sure why my company chose to use Small Improvements. We used Lattice before for the all the same use cases I mentioned here. The employee performance review feature might be a bit better in Small Improvements, but the goal-setting tool and the 1:1 tool are very weak. I may not have benefitted yet from all the features that Small Improvements have to offer, but so far it looks like a pretty basic HR tool with much better alternatives out there. If it's cheaper than the competition, that might be the only argument to go with it.

Customer service has been good. It's easy to use. It's cost effective. It's a good way to expand your social presence and get your employees more vested in branding the company without spending a ton of money. There are bells and whistles that may be good for other users. I just haven't had the time to use them

Support Rating
GaggleAMP
Support for GaggleAMP is easily the best customer support I've experienced with any software tool. Our rep, Sam, is dedicated to our account (no bouncing around a call-center bullpen), and is highly proactive and eager to help us succeed. Most of our interactions have nothing to do with problems, but rather opportunities to optimize our use of the tool and set us up for greatest success. GaggleAMP sets a gold standard for customer support!

I never had to contact their support so far. There's no "N/A" option so I'm going with a neutral "5".

Alternatives Considered
GaggleAMP
A former colleague suggested EveryoneSocial, but I think that GaggleAMP has more industry experience in terms of employee advocacy and social engagement. While it did appear somewhat easier to use, it didn't have all the features and attention to detail that GaggleAMP provided such as the detailed reporting and the specific activity suggestions I was looking for.

Lattice was able to link in with core OKRs whereas from my memory, Small Improvements didn't support this goal setting and tracking framework. While it was good for sentiment and management frameworks, it was unable to connect with the greater company vision as well as Lattice - that was the reason that we moved.

Return on Investment
GaggleAMP
  • Take this with a grain of salt, but our company's all-time CPC (cost per click) savings is $1.85 M ($184,116.95 last quarter).
  • GaggleAMP has become an important part in getting our employees and partners to engage with us on Social Media more regularly - a great tool for getting information out there.
  • Brand awareness.
