Overall Satisfaction with Meltwater Social (formerly Sysomos)

We use it for 3 functions. Monitoring, measurement, and insight development.
  • Quickly allows us to pull basic data.
  • Very easy to use if you know how to construct Boolean queries.
  • Flexibility to quickly update keywords / queries.
  • Customer service.
  • Needs more and faster growth for shared / owned channel analysis.
  • It is twitter heavy. Pulling from more social sources would be ideal.
  • Single seat / license can be used for multiple clients.
  • It saves a bunch of time being able to quickly adjust and segment queries.
  • The compare tab is very useful to get basic numbers with different filters, queries, geographic areas all at once.
Radian6 is at the very low end with Crimson Hexagon and Netbase at the very top. Sysomos is at the bottom third in terms of sophistication but makes up for a lot by being very easy to use.
Overall the ease of use, flexibility, and speed of the product makes it VERY useful for us.
