OnSolve Critical Event Management & Mass Notification

MIR3 is very well suited to customize your broadcasts and notifications so you're prepared. If a call initiator opts to modify an existing callout message via phone, however, I don't believe there's a way to modify the associated response actions, which can become confusing.

Socialcast has been a great tool for FactSet. I would recommend it to any firm looking for an easy-to-use tool to centralize communication and collaborate on a global scale.

Pros

OnSolve Critical Event Management & Mass Notification

  • Easy to set up
  • Easy to update
  • Easy to download and upload data
Maryann DeMaria | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Socialcast (discontinued)

  • Socialcast has an exceptional user experience. With very few idiosyncrasies, it works well on every platform I've tried.
  • The platform has such a high level of ease of use, it becomes somewhat addicting.
  • Social analytics are superb.
  • The platform is highly intuitive and requires zero training or coaching in order for network members to become productive with it.
  • It's extremely reliable. Only once in 4 years, was the product not available, and that was only for about a half-hour. In that half-hour, we realized how dependent we were on it. (Very.)
  • The multi-device and deployment options are excellent. On-premise, Private Cloud, and Multi-tenant SaaS all available.
  • The mobile apps for iPhone, tablets, and Android render well with a beautiful UI/UX. The desktop AIR app is equally highly usable.

Cons

OnSolve Critical Event Management & Mass Notification

  • Some of the extended options can be confusing, but they've provided definitions that appear when you linger on an option. That's helpful, but the extended options interactions can still be a little confusing.
  • I'd like to be able to share the complete notification process with users as a reference guide, I don't think that's available.
Maryann DeMaria | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Socialcast (discontinued)

  • The software is a little bit pricey because it is charged by user/month and depending on the deployment method.
  • For companies with a lot of workers the price can increase significantly.
  • The mobile app usability and notifications are poor. Need to be improved.
  • If there were more administrative features available the product would be improved

Beyond the value FactSet derives from using the platform, Socialcast (the firm) has been a good partner to FactSet. We've experienced very little downtime with the service and they have been responsive and fair with enhancement requests and questions

Socialcast is great for collaboration & light project management, but anything complex doesn't work well.

Using it as an email notification curator works nice for us.
