This software was designed to monitor our social media presence and respond to mentions, and we didn't use it to actually track ROI. But the fact that we were able to react to people's mentions of our brand was important, especially for support-related questions. We were able to increase efficiency of our employees monitoring, posting and responding to mentions, so the ROI in this case could be translated to saved man hours - if taken this way it was definitely positive. However this would have been the ROI of any solution of that kind, regardless of the vendor.,10,,5,1,Multiple uses: Support: Monitoring social media mentions for multiple brands, and responding to urgent requests quickly Social media presence: posting across multiple networks (Facebook, Twitter), including scheduled postings across multiple accounts as well Monitoring trends to help identify new keywords and buzz words Watching engagement to company postings on multiple networks,10,,Implemented in-house,10,Online training,10,No,10,10,9,9,We signed up for the company's custom plan which was their top-level plan at the time, and it already included everything we needed.

I liked uberVU a lot, and thought I was lucky to have found them (they actually responded to my tweet when I was vendor-searching, which was good to know as they were doing just what we were planning to use the software for).
They are relatively small, which allows to have a great personal relationship and we felt very valued as a client. They provided great value - some of their competitors allow for more features (which explains their higher price), but there was no way to opt out of the unnecessary features to lower the price - uberVU didn't have any of that, it was just what we needed and in our price range.
