Overall Satisfaction with Socialcast

We are primarily using Socialcast as an opt-In/opt-out email notification system from our ERP.

We tried to use Socialcast as our Intranet but could not garner enough user interest and there was some missing functionality.
As a notification system, we have setup email alerts on our ERP that emails Socialcast which then posts the email as a post under the ERP user account.

The email message includes data tags that users can then subscribe to get notified via email. This puts the users in control of the ERP notifications instead of having to go into the ERP script to change the recipient list every time a change is needed.
  • Email Notifications
  • Light Projects
  • Idea Boards
  • Collaboration
  • Mobile App does not provide enough functionality to be useful, but improvements have been made.
  • More workflow tools
  • More common business process apps
  • Free up to 50 Users
  • Solved a business communication problem
  • Need paid subscription for SSO, etc.
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.
It's great for collaboration and communication. However if you are looking for a type of Intranet that will augment the missing pieces in your company, Socialcast does not deliver. There are integration options but the options seem to be geared towards web/programming sectors.
