  • Socialcast Use Cases and Deployment ScopeSocialcast is deployed to all FactSet departments and employees worldwide. We implemented Socialcast in 2009, as we had experienced rapid growth which was putting pressure on our ability to share information. We needed a way to quickly onboard new employees while preserving our corporate culture. Now, Socialcast goes beyond onboarding and has become the go-to hub for employees to ask questions, share information, and solve problems.

    Pros : Share the collective knowledge of our company in a centralized locationPublicly praise and thank employeesMake strategic information and corporate values accessible to all employees worldwide

    Cons : Tagging and groups are useful, but that only extends to text posts. We post a lot of images in our community and it would be great to tag those for people and topics as well.When we purchased Socialcast in 2009, they were the only provider with analytics on platform usage. However, in the years since, I haven't seen a lot of development in their analytic tools. This is a shame, as analytics are critical to demonstrating usage and proving the ROI of an enterprise social network.

  • Socialcast is ideal for companies that need a simple way to bring everyone together. The application is ideal for medium to large size organizations that have to manage larger numbers of employees and resources. Users can collaborate online and work more efficiently through activity streams, private messages and other social features. Small companies may not find Socialcast as appealing unless their employees work in different locations or with different schedules.

  • If you run a company with young employees who frequently use Facebook during their off time, then Socialcast is a communication application you can be sure your employees will embrace with enthusiasm.

    Socialcast is an excellent corporate social network which allows a lot in terms of usability. The user experience is truly unique and encourages great collaboration between team members. It works very well across all platforms and browsers. The UI is very intuitive, and users don't need to be experts in coding or formatting to create posts that stand out. It also has such intuitive functionality and training that people quickly become hooked and use it as a social tool without thinking twice about the fact that their actually performing work within it. High reliability also is a huge factor in deploying Socialcast successfully. Having a highly functional social network helps team members to want to interact with each other quickly and easily while keeping everyone in sync. The ease of use encourages people to help each other, share valuable information, and stay organized so you can perform work easily with team members anywhere in the world. You can get your organization up and running with a free trial with a decent amount of functionality to see if it takes hold in your type of organization. The mobile app for social cast is easy to use with enough functionality to allow users to collaborate on the go. Support compared to similar applications across the market is second to none as long as you’re willing to pay for it. For organizations looking to increase the flow of knowledge to help promote new ideas and advancements within organization applications like Socialcast can play a huge role in getting the conversation going. Rather than walk around your office looking for people to ask a question you can quickly post it to all your colleagues or directed as select people to quickly attain the input you need. If employees are spread across countries or continents, Socialcast can help organizations with large numbers of employees overcome challenges which can be solved by collaboration without travel costs.

    Pros :

    • High Reliability.
    • Intuitive.
    • Eeasy to use UI.
    • Cross platform compatible.

    Cons :

    • Limited mobile functionality.
    • Photos do not always render properly on mobile.
