A dedicated team and customer service makes a difference

2016-11-02

They are always taking suggestions from their users and if it makes sense, the feature becomes available to Jostle users.

Pros

Ease of use, simple to use content curation features, ability to visually represent important information in an organized fashion. Very modern and polished.

Cons

Maybe the integration of some sort of visual dashboard that allows for goal tracking.

Remove "Where is it?" from your office language

2016-11-02

Communication is the Key.

Pros

the ability to control who sees what.

Cons

Events. Time consuming to post to. Too many options. Would be nice if we could customize the form for us, choosing only the items we want our employees to have available. Also - show time as busy so no duplication of events.

Easy to use, value for money, and helps to unite a team.

2017-08-09

Easy to use

Pros

The ease of remembering anniversaries and other significant dates makes it easy to foster a sense of team.

Cons

Although there are different categories of entries (article, news, etc. ) it is easy to have duplication at the user interface so one item can show up repeatedly (newest, most popular and such).

Connect your company in a flash!!

2017-10-24

Pros

From the field to the office, this product makes it super easy to provide project updates/shout outs, birthday/anniversary notifications, CEO motivational blogs, etc.

Cons

It's a stand alone product - which is by design - but results in some duplication of entry with other software.

Great platform with fantastic support!

2016-11-03

I've worked with the Jostle platform for a year and a half and have had many good experiences and business successes. I cannot rate enough how great it is to have a knowledgeable and helpful designated account manager (Sally Smith) who is my main point of contact and is always happy to discuss our platform use and suggest new ways of working along with answering any queries I have. This makes our user experience of Jostle align with our business strategy and values, as well as ensuring we continue to optimise the platform when new changes are introduced. I also rate the forum very highly as it's great to be able to discuss thoughts/ideas/best practice with other Jostle users outside of our organisation - and it's great that conversations on the forum are heard by the Jostle team and often make their way into the Jostle newsletter and ultimately influence platform developments and changes.

Pros

The ease of use, how the interface resembles social media and encourages full company engagement

Cons

Some of the areas on the platform are not relevant to our business, but there is not anything we can do to reallocate these sections into something more appropriate. It means the sections remain unused. (not a massive issue as we tend to focus our attention on the News section anyway)

Keep listening to the forum suggestions - I love the fact you can integrate with Twitter on the update/shout out area. Unfortunately we use this social media platform to target candidates and clients, rather than current and future employees. Our facebook and instagram accounts would be much more relevant for us to promote on Jostle in that way.

The best feature of this software is hands down the event handler.

Pros

Ease of use, friendly colorful format, brings people together and makes them feel empowered.

Cons
