SAP Jam

When you need to create a private, secure space for individuals to collaborate or work on a project together, SAP Jam does a great job at bringing people together and giving them a space to work together in. There are also great ways to provide learning opportunities (including sharing webinars or other educational content)

Workplace from Facebook

I think Workplace by Facebook is a great communication vehicle for any mid-sized to large company. (Since it's more groups-oriented than "regular" Facebook, it might not work well for smaller companies.) I also don't have any idea what the cost is for having it, but that also be a reason that it wouldn't be worth the expense for smaller companies. For larger companies, I think it's a terrific way for folks to communicate with one another and for "the powers that be" to communicate with employees. Facebook Live is only suitable when you have a limited number of people who need to be on screen and it wouldn't really be suitable as a vehicle for instructor-led online training -- it's really most suitable for presentations (although, via the comments area, does allow for questions to be asked in writing)

Pros

SAP Jam

  • Managing members with the communities is easy (including inviting them to join).
  • Publishing and editing content is easy with the platform.
  • The interface is easy to use and navigate.

Workplace from Facebook

  • It provides a user interface that is familiar and proven to assist in engaging people to use the platform. The layout is clean and minimal and pleasing and that helps staff become comfortable with interacting with one another.
  • Group insights are a fantastic feature that allows you to see how a certain topic, discussion or file is performing with the staff or audience. If you are seeking feedback on a particular memo, for instance, the insights will catalog who has viewed, how many comments, questions or interactions, etc. It helps to see in real-time, the things staff or clients are excited about and then the items where no one comments.
  • Cataloging of historical information is a real benefit. The dashboard has a notes section where I will keep a lot of private and or personal reflections that I can reference at a later time. I may jot a few notes about a project so I can recall them at a later point. Many programs do this, but again, this is all within the same house and for time and memory sake, this really works well.
  • Segmenting is very easy to do. We have set up Groups for various projects, teams, clients or cohorts. You can segment as much as you want and one person may be in more than one group but maybe not all groups. Basic segmenting that works well. Notifications are sent when new posts or news is released.
  • The platform is not the same portal as Facebook so there is no chance that posts get put on the wrong timeline. With this said, what I like most is the ease of onboarding and no one has had any trouble getting up and going on Workplace. It is like Facebook, easy and something most if not all will have familiarity in navigation.

Cons

SAP Jam

  • Sometimes users get too many notifications from the system which can be overwhelming if they haven't set up their notifications to their standards.
  • Analytics on engagement aren't great.

Workplace from Facebook

  • There's a slight concern over the privacy and security of company and employee information. This concern is increasing with each revelation about Facebook's use of data.
  • I am not a fan of the Messenger and Workplace App being separate; just like with regular Facebook. I wish they were combined in the same app.
  • Although overall I do find Workplace by Facebook productive, occasionally I find myself losing time by scrolling and clicking too much on company gossip and news.

We are moving toward other platforms that are meant more for virtual community, like Higher Logic. The customer support at SAP Jam is also lacking.

It's an integrated platform that brings together a lot of different people from across the association to work on shared projects, etc. Given the various roles people play and the varying skill sets they bring to the table, the platform is fairly intuitive to use and easy to navigate around

Having to download multiple apps just to use the tool is very cumbersome. Facebook would have make this better by wrapping it in as a main feature within their app, but having to use multiple apps to see discussions and walls is so frustrating.

We have to submit requests multiple times to get a response and it often feels like they go into a black hole. Because we don't have anyone in house really supporting the back-end of the platform, we rely on SAP Jam's support and development teams to help solve problems and improve the platform for us.

Workplace by Facebook is an excellent fit in respect of support and documentation. It has excellent tutorials and documentation, as well. The UI and UX are already great as it is developed and maintained by Facebook, so most of the times, there is no need for any support or documentation.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Jam

We actually probably moving to Higher Logic for our virtual community needs -- their interface is better and can more easily integrate with our website to provide a seamless experience for our users. We also want them to be able to toggle between our website and the community platform and it's not currently set up to do that well

Workplace from Facebook

Workplace offers more features with less of a learning curve than other options, which has helped adoption and usefulness. It is built for communication, which it excels at, but it is not built to address all business needs and other project management, document review, and communication tools are still needed

Return on Investment

SAP Jam

  • Our constituents value community and this has enabled us to be able to bring people together in a secure, virtual space.
  • We are a national association and many of the people that need to collaborate on work projects aren't physically in the same place, so this virtual space has improved work output.

Workplace from Facebook

  • We can meet the project times, that with the communication in real time.
  • We provide solutions to our suppliers in a reliable and efficient manner.
  • When a business can save time and at the same time respond to the demands of customers, this translates into greater market capture of action for the company.
