Lithium Community is a fully-featured community platform and is focused on the needs of marketers. Lithium most often competes with Jive Team Collaboration and Get Satisfaction. better than Jive!Deployment and ease of use have been amazing – day and night vs. Jive. Typically deployment gives you a cringe – absolutely the easiest deployment I’ve ever been a part of. Overall layout and design/ flow is a lot easier to manage than Jive. It has a CMS type thing that self-propogates through the entire community. Jive did not automatically propogate. Analytics - They have a lot of patented algorithms that help generate key metric indexes. You can compare yourself with other Lithium customers. When you dive in deeper into analytics, Lithium allows you to look deeper into what an individual is doing vs. just a broad view of your community. Integration with,Content editor for moderators – you need to know HTML for adding custom content. Several editors don’t know HTML and it is hard to get it to look like they want. The WYSIWYG is very limited in the functions that it has. It falls on the site admin to do a lot of the adding of content. The client side works fine – can format posts however they want.,Since we launched Lithium, our metrics compared to have our old community (Jive) have significantly increased and our support cases being opened have decreased as of Q1, but we have not verified for sure. In terms of customer satisfaction impact, right now, we've just had positive verbal feedback and have not quantified benefits. Clients have reported that they’ve learned a lot about our products from the community. Lithium has an ROI analysis tool. You can plug amount on cost of a support ticket and it computes the money saved based upon having questions asked/answered in community. We are trying to use this feature. It's hard to do so, from the nature of our support organization. They want to be able to record all of the information coming in and have a hesitancy to release those numbers to us.,10,10,17,0.25,Private customer community – for peer to peer communication about product usage and best practices Also use for specific product programs and the partner program.

Online Training

It was out of the box training - pre-recorded/ not live. There was nothing for more advanced topics like APIs. They do have a good knowledge base and community that you can access and folks in there are responsive. I would however like more advanced training options.
