Percolate

It is absolutely phenomenal for global social management. If you are wanting to provide a center hub for oversight that can assist other markets with content, approvals and idea generation, then Percolate excels in that area. Overall, it is also a very cost efficient tool given other competitors in the category.The platform is also well-built to suit an "all-in-one" workflow solution. With lean teams, Percolate can be the single go-to tool you need for planning, publishing and reporting. The built-in asset editor and approval process really takes the burden off juggling lots of different types of software and/or email.

Pros

  • Create social content from briefing all the way through to the approval process.
  • Social planner for managing topics and content streams across multiple channels.
  • Robust API and integrations.
  • Image library (with cost-free access/rights to stock photo libraries).
  • Frequent updates to the platform.
  • Built-in community management.

Cons

  • Data is a mess. So unreliable. Takes so much time to create a concrete report.
  • There is no ability to export anything. No calendar PDFs, no data Excel sheets, nothing.
  • No paid management functionality.
  • Hated their listening tool abilities relative to other tools I've used.

As we have grown to implement Percolate with more and more people within our company, we have also run into more features we'd like to see in the app. The Percolate team has been extremely understanding about these requests, and even visited our offices to sit and listen to exactly what we are looking for. Assuming these new features make it into production with them, we'll definitely stay with Percolate for the long term

Implementation

Percolate9.0
Based on 1 answer
Rarely has a company shown this much support during implementation. This almost got to the point where it was too much hand holding. Sometimes, social teams just want the keys to the car so they can drive it themselves instead of waiting on someone to drive along with them...

Alternatives Considered

Percolate provided a more robust portfolio of offerings in the social space. We felt that although Percolate was not the cheapest, that it provides the most value to our social strategy and has been instrumental in getting us to the place we are now
