Klaxoon
Easy for end-users to experience the workflow and processes (i.e. low entry barrier) and handle the tool. Easy for facilitators to create a digital board and to animate and create a good remote real-time or asynchronous experience. Moreover, it allows building Customer Journey Maps (CJM) for my end-users with very low time invested and a high level of reusability.

We use Social Text as a platform to air our issues with different departments. We voice our concerns and suggestions so we can help find a solution to the problems we incur on a daily basis. We need to have social text as an app so we can communicate in real time not only during work hours.

Pros
Klaxoon
  • There are many templates available in the library: very useful for organizing a workshop that always requires a method to support collective intelligence.
  • Klaxoon is great for working collaboratively at the same time. It is really visual and not very difficult to use. It has different kinds of interesting features, but you have to know about them.
  • Blackboard principle, confidentiality of contributions

Cons
Klaxoon
  • From a user perspective I would say klaxoon offers all the good stuff. A few functions could be more developed like survey.
  • I personally had troubled organizing some of the boards to have the data from them exported in a nice way.
  • Hard to find more negative sides, but more templates for more use cases would always be nice :-)

  • Search needs a ton of improvements. It was very slow a year ago
  • Search result quality was also not that good
  • I know they have improved their UI recently but when i used it last year it did not really have any design elements which could be used to make the articles look more presentable. It was important for us as we used it for external communication as well.

We have a lot of info in Socialtext already. It would be hard to get all that info out and port it to a different system

Alternatives Considered
Klaxoon
we are trying many visual collaboration applications. and we will choose the application that will offer us a more interactive environment. Miro is a very similar app and surpasses Klaxoon in terms of interface and simplicity. But Klaxoon is more successful with pre-designed boards. MURAL is a different concept and lags behind Klaxoon in terms of workspace.

I frankly like Confluence better than socialtext because of the speed and the quality of search. They also have better design elements which can help make the articles pleasant to the eyes.

Return on Investment
Klaxoon
  • Klaxoon allows working in a group easily at the same time for people in different places. So the main benefit is to work collaboratively and to come back to the work anytime we want.
  • It was especially important during the Covid period when we could not organize on-site sessions with a real post-it. It helps also for online training or digital adoption thanks to the possibility to define the digital training journey with Module/Quiz sessions/Surveys.
  • we benefited from strong support from the Customer management services of Klaxoon to kick off the solution in a very good way.
