Nuvi

NUVI is great for ongoing listening, especially for long-term clients. If your monitor is already set up, the platform is great in a crisis situation. If you don't have previous monitors created, it can be less helpful if something pops up out of the blue since it cannot pull in historic data. NUVI is better for more experienced social/digital team members as there is a learning curve when you first use the software.

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is a good tool for brands or agencies who have a set list of competitors or subbrands that they are looking to do a monthly/weekly comparison of engagement metrics. When you have the brand account inputted, the data is shown in a visually tangible way and easy to comprehend.

Pros

Nuvi

  • There are many great features that we like about NUVI. We initially purchased this tool just for listening/monitoring but have learned to do so much more with it.
  • I really enjoy the "stream" feature and love the reports that NUVI creates.
  • The dashboards for each monitor is also very easy and friendly to use.

Cons

Nuvi

  • There are various quirks and bugs that become apparent as you use the tool more. Nothing that completely ruins the experience, but they can be nagging.
  • It didn't seem to pull in every use of some particular Instagram hashtags that we were tracking. Instagram reported a good bit more than NUVI did.
  • Better historical data (for collection and prediction). Currently it can pull from the last 30 days of Twitter data, which can give you some idea of volume moving forward, but in some cases it's a vast underestimate for the actual volume you'll get from all data sources. Also, if you're looking for previous mentions of your search terms beyond 30 days, then you're out of luck.

  • Unfortunately, when exporting data it is often hard to read in an easy format.
  • I've used other tools where you can get historical data once you put into the tool but Pulsar cannot do that.

I have just gotten out of my contract and NUVI was very nice to extend more help to me in finding out ways the tool could be useful, but at this point, I declined as I've already spent months using it and still having difficulty. Perhaps for some other businesses or people, this is the perfect tool, just didn't work for me

Pulsar is not a complex tool by any means. The interface is updated and comprehensive, and I've used multiple tools in the past where the interface was very outdated and exporting data was often a difficult process since it was not well organized. The tool works well in visualizing complex data.

I have not had to reach out to Pulsar support before but my coworkers have and said the support was good.

Alternatives Considered

Nuvi

NUVI provided us with a more in-depth analysis of what we wanted to see and what we didn't know we needed to see. There is also the advantage of being able to do everything by using one product (NUVI) instead of having to using several different products to accomplish one set of tasks. It also helps that NUVI is much more engaging and appealing to look at

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is one of the more updated platforms that I have used and the metrics exported/shown in the dashboard are accurate. I think that some tools report inaccurate metrics gathered from social media platforms due to the new APIs, something that often causes confusion and lack of clarity.

Return on Investment

  • Efficiency - Weekly reporting has dropped from a few hours to roughly 30 minutes. Audience segmentation studies have dropped from a month to two weeks.
  • ROI - NUVI is generally cheaper than most competitors. It's increased my margins.
  • Happier clients - With greater efficiency comes faster turn around times and happier clients.
