User Testimonials

Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
Less Appropriate Scenarios- A fintech company has highly specialized or industry-specific workflows that are not easily accommodated within the standard capabilities of Khoros Care. In such cases, the platform may be less appropriate for businesses with extremely unique processes that require a high degree of customization. Well suited- financial institutions face a high volume of customer inquiries related to account management, transactions, and security concerns. Khoros Care's security features, automation capabilities, and integration with banking systems make it suitable for managing customer interactions in the financial services sector.

Pros
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
  • Tagging system - it's possible to add a wide variety of labels and categories
  • Search feature - being able to find users by conversation number, username, or keywords makes it easier to navigate old conversations
  • Easy system for assigning conversations to other users
  • When you claim a conversation, it gets removed from the queue. This is much more visually explicit than Khoros Marketing's queue, for example, where all content remains visible in the queue and a bookmark gets moved around to distinguish the point where other users left off

  • Great visibility into web traffic and visitors to our website
  • Great integrations with Salesforce.com and ZenDesk
  • Fantastic analytics on user activity

Cons
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
  • Although there aren't any significant issues with the platform, there might be need for improvement in a few specific areas of the mobile application to increase and facilitate use.
  • The basic monotony of social media, I suppose, but it doesn't really speak poorly of the app.

Simply, there isn't anything on the market that is quite as personable as Khoros Care. After using a few different client messaging systems, this program gave the closest feel to in-person interaction that we could get during the COVID-19 epidemic and is an important part of our agency still to this day in 2023.

Usability
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
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.

Khoros Support has always very responsive and helpful when it comes to getting my issue/inquiry addressed. Their ticket portal is great for tracking any open tickets and they can be updated via the portal or by responding to the email thread.

Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
Implementing the platform was not a big hassle for our client, it was seamless and easy we just had to follow a few steps and it was done. Just scaling was a bit of an issue but it got resolved with time and a bit of effort at both ends

Alternatives Considered
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
Khoros is more than just a platform for social publishing. No other competitor provides the in-depth moderation and social listening services that they do. If you're looking for a one-stop-shop of a platform for all things social, this is the tool to be using. Others are better in usability and innovative functionality.
