It was our go to for all forum/ team sharing needs. Any updates, links or questions anyone had were shared on SocialCast. It was the perfect peer forum site/program for our needs.
It is no longer supported by it's host and sadly it no longer available for use.
1. Easy content sharing and feed management
2. Collaboration with Staff workers, customers and business partners
3. Intel sharing among co-workers becomes easy.
4. Privacy within the organization.
5. Multi-platform support and Integrations using APIs.
1. No in-product Gantt chart facility. Tracking of a conversation is difficult.
2. No integrations with Dropbox, google drive.
3. Supports only English language
Nice product offering for its time but no longer relevant in the industry.
Slick design and snappy interface. Socialcast incorporates all the social media features such as news feed, threaded conversations, ability to create groups, etc. It is really is Facebook for work. I also like the ability to bring in external users and have them directly interact with company employees. Easy integration with single sign on providers and able to import users and groups from directory services.
Tends to be fairly noisy at times so you do have to manage your event notifications. Most of the time, many messages get lost in the shuffle. The productivity industry has now turned to the slack, Hipchat, Microsoft Teams style of communication which is much more dynamic and interactive. The instant messaging in Socialcast is pretty basic and doesn't offer any unique features of like voice calling.
The way we communicate is changing and companies can't rely on free apps to handle vital information...
It's a mature solution acquired by VMware. The advantage is that it's proven and friendly to the youngest employees. Every company must to invest in social network solutions for business because it is the future. Email will never die, but communication will be different. DO not rely your business communication using public services because it;s beyond your control.
I love the name also, it's unique and catchy... I love it.
Pricing model is hard to understand, that's the basic part. It should be flat... and charge only for extra storage or something like that.
gave me a nice solution of reaching more users and optional clients as well
social options are really the hottest features for this days, search engines are considering social measures as a fine way to get to more and more users to know about stuff
it might take a while to know how to use the whole features
Social Cast is pretty easy to use. Just wish you could sort things more effectively, as in; sort by popularity, time, etc.
Good with asking questions
Wish you could either have something mobile and/or got better notifications like facebook
