Digital Technology Review

  • Questions to ask yourself:
    • When your leaders ask you for information do you say “we can’t get that” frequently?
    • Do you struggle to identify what caused spikes in your volume?
    • Do you struggle to identify your cost per transaction?
    • Are you able to automatically filter out spam?
    • Do you hide from your leadership team when they ask how much longer before you figure out whether the team is making or costing the company money?
    • Do you really know how to use your tool?
    • Does your jaw hit the floor when you’re on meetings with other leaders of social care teams who tell you all the cool stuff their tool can do?
    • Are you wondering where all these meetings are with other people who do what you do, and you didn’t know that was a thing?
  • What steps should I take??
    1. Make a list of everything you said yes to above
    2. Add anything else that you wish you had
    3. Make a list of features that are currently important to you
    4. Check out some tool vendors. My favorite:
      1. Conversocial
      2. CX Social
      3. Telligent
  • What Should I Look For?
    1. Channels pulled in – Facebook, Twitter, public forums, private forums, Instagram, Google+ YouTube, LinkedIn, Blogs, Reviews, FourSquare, TripAdvisor (beta), etc.
    2. Tagging: see (Episode 24 – Post Tagging Strategy).
    3. Ability to integrate knowledge base content
    4. Ability to integrate community forums content
    5. Push workflow/autoassign/skill based routing
