Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
The best it could be used for is running campaigns. Be it a product launch or be it any new event that you are hosting. If you need to quickly grab attention, then this might be your choice. Also the report given after the campaign is a good insight for improving your next campaign.

ResellerRatings is a good tool for collecting ratings and quantifying how satisfied a user is with your website. It is relatively easy to implement and get setup and does have some pre-built widgets for adding reviews to your site. ResellerRatings does require a bit of training to get the hang of the administrative interface and it does require support staff to monitor, flag, and respond to reviews that are submitted (which can be a challenge depending on # of reviews and staffing levels).

  • Seller Ratings are available, but Product Reviews for your company shouldn't be part of a paid package.
  • Private/Public Replies should allow URLS to be clickable for ease-of-access.
  • The "Reports" feature could be explained in more depth.

There is no product like Khoros. Our company lives and dies by the analytics, and to date, we have not seen a more comprehensive analytics structure for any social media management tool. Khoros support is also fantastic, responding and resolving any and all questions, ideas, or complaints, usually in 24 hours.

Usability
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
Khoros Marketing is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. The calendar visibility is the view I use most so I can see all posts going out on all of our channels. It allows us to time posts in a proper cadence so we don't overlap with other pressing content.

Performance
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
Khoros has greatly improved the performance of its SaaS products in the last 5 years. Their applications, including Conversations, Intelligence, and Experiences, all load quickly with real-time data. This performance is critical to provide meaningful, social customer support, and marketing. The performance maintains integrity even when you deploy powerful integrations like Salesforce Customer Relationship Manager.

Support Rating
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
Overall, support does a great job and is timely in their responses and efforts. We have had to contact support many times due to the Capture app. Some tickets have remained open for months, while others get resolved quickly. I understand this is not always up to support and they often have to wait for their engineering team to fix issues that we identified, but it's difficult to deal with issues that are affecting our workflow, especially for extended amounts of time.

ResellerRatings support is pretty easy to get ahold of, and we usually got response within 24 hours.

In-Person Training

• As a very early customer, we did not undergo formal training but worked closely with the team to get the system set up to do what we wanted. However, online training resources are now available with many blog posts / video lessons and tutorials.

Online Training
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
it is important to note that my perspective is not necessarily common - I'm a geek/nerd/poweruser in general, so I found the online resources to be more than adequate (and often very aesthetically pleasing, too). That said, a less "geeky" person might struggle a bit.

Implementation Rating
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
The implementation team from Khoros were great - they worked hard to understand our somewhat complex organization, and were with us all the way through face to face meetings, user training, and technical training. We had a clearly defined account manager and implementation manager, who worked really effectively together and with us.

Alternatives Considered
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
On some accounts that I am on, I use Asana in place of Khoros marketing but I much prefer Khoros Marketing. I prefer Khoros Marketing over Asana because I can post directly (and schedule posts) on Khoros but not on Asana. Also, I can moderate directly on Khoros but not Asana

We use both Trustpilot and ResellerRatings, as they handle slightly different aspects of services (product versus service).

Scalability
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
Khoros seems to struggle a little past a certain level of scale. More than 30 separate per day makes it difficult to view all content in the weekly calendar view, which is frustrating and could cause issues. However, the ability to schedule one post across multiple channels is hugely valuable and cuts down on a lot of duplicative work.

Return on Investment
Khoros (Formerly Spredfast + Lithium)
  • Negatively impacted relationship with Khoros as they're notoriously difficult to engage with or able to produce viable results from our feedback.
  • Negatively impacted KPI reporting, as metrics were inaccurate for six months.
  • Negatively impacted resource management, as there've been so many restrictions with this platform that simple, day-to-day tasks take so much longer.

  • ResellerRatings has had a positive impact on ROI by allowing us to quickly gather user ratings/reviews and integrate the aggregate review with Google's paid search ads (via star ratings showing in ads)
  • ResellerRatings has also had a positive impact on our business by allowing us to collect reviews and display on our website without the need for internal development resources and IT work (which would have been very costly for us).
  • One thing we had wanted to accomplish through the use of ResellerRatings was to display reviews on our website and provide that detail to Google in a consumable format which would result in star ratings showing in our organic search results. However, we were not able to accomplish this and Google never picked up our rating from the ResellerRating's widgets, so that was a bit of a letdown.
