NetBase Quid

In my use of [NetBase] Quid, I found the tool particularly suitable for curating pertinent content. It allowed me to develop more comprehensive analysis at a larger scale, all while substantially reducing the amount of research time needed. It is also a plus that [NetBase] Quid is delivered as a web app. I did some of my [NetBase] Quid work on a low-end Chromebook without issues.

Webtrends Social

Webtrends Social offers social media marketers an abundance of tools needed for monitoring, managing campaigns and resolving customer issues in the social media space. In regards to the pricing, I would say it is less appropriate for small to medium-sized businesses where the social marketing aspect is an add-on or supplemental to the main marketing channels.

Pros

NetBase Quid

  • Their NLP is very strong with the ability to distinguish subject in sentences and then apply analysis based on either the subject or sentence. Competitors lack strong NLP and often have lower degrees of accuracy.
  • The platform is highly flexible with dozens of ways to filter and cut the data. It is great for an analyst that really wants to deep dive into the data. However, the analysis done automatically by NetBase is also strong enough that less experienced users would still be able to gain insight with ease.
  • The customizable dashboards are perfect for client reporting and drastically reduce the amount of time spent preparing recurring reports and decks. These are also very flexible depending on reporting needs.

Webtrends Social

  • It provided strong metrics on followers, contest entries, and shares.
  • I could easily track the effectiveness of campaigns in reaching and engaging consumers. Beyond building hype around the product, it was easy to track goals metrics. I had access to every metric I needed to gauge campaign effectiveness.
  • The tools gave me fine-grained control over the look and feel making it very easy to match my company's branding.

Cons

NetBase Quid

  • Dashboards can only currently be exported as PDFs. It would be helpful to have a more read/writable format (eg. PPT) that enables us to combine Netbase's outputs with other sources, or to make them more consistent with our own branding (colours, fonts etc.)
  • The business model revolves around a limited number of login seats. I would like to be able to roll out the tool to make it available/accessible to more people in the business, but the pricing model makes this impractical/uneconomical.
  • Logging out users after a period of inactivity can be frustrating when multitasking/task switching and unsaved work is lost.
  • While Netbase's focus on language processing is its key strength, additional functionality around social analysis (eg. people who follow a brand account, users who talk about X are also likely to talk about Y) is somewhat limited.

  • The number of platforms it manages
  • Being able to use a wider range of media types
  • Learning curve could be improved upon for the UX

We've had a good experience using the tool and have invested quite a bit of time training the internal team on how to get the most benefit out of it. There would need to be a compelling reason or business case to port over all of our existing topics and tool know-how to another platform.

Unfortunately, they changed the pricing structure and simultaneously offered less support. They did offer premium support, but it was very expensive

Very simple to use, quick to pick up on the key principles, and a task-centric design (ie. Topics to set up what you want to analyze, Analysis to do the exploration/analysis, and Dashboards to pull results and findings together to generate reports.) All intuitive, drag & drop etc.

NetBase constantly updates the platform with features. The platforms ability to analyze complex social listening topics is exceptional. Its fast and gives you the ability to create standardized reports for a quick topic analysis. Additionally, the standard overview tab provides the topic at a glance and assists in quickly identifying areas to further analyze. Great product with excellent support behind it!

We had an internal implementation meeting with the NetBase team as well as a business seat implementation for one of our clients. I would highly recommend having all stakeholders attend an implementation meeting as they can understand the power of this platform.

This was a very straightforward process. First, we customized the look and feel to make it just the way we wanted it. When we were done, we notified our rep who then did some work on their side before pushing the site live. This all worked flawlessly

Alternatives Considered

NetBase Quid

Meltwater took too long to load whenever you had to change keywords, their customer service was not very responsive, and their interface was not very customizeable. We decided to search for a new software company and we invited many companies to present. We selected Netbase after a free trial for reasons stated earlier.

After evaluating Webtrends Social, I'd have to say in regards to the cost and the overall capabilities of the solution that other tools such as Social Sprout offer a more competitive package. For the amount you are paying on a monthly basis you are being offered tools that can get the job done at a better price point to warrant getting a tool for the department.

Return on Investment

NetBase Quid

  • Positive - NetBase allows us to quickly gather a high level over view of a topic, which helps for new business pitch and being able to inform the account teams of basic information.
  • Negative - We have to use other tools to gather news, which affects our budget.

Webtrends Social

  • Reduced hours per week resolving customer issues
  • Increased efficiency on engagement reporting
  • Is costly to recoup ROI
