We've been Jostle customers for over three years and couldn't be happier with the product. It's hip, fresh, innovative and always evolving. It's connected our culture beyond our expectations and it's really intuitive for users. Service is rarely needed - but when it is - they're quick, responsive, professional and effective. They understand how critical communication is to business and always deliver the highest quality product, speed and connectivity. We're always happy to provide a reference on Jostle's amazing platform!

Just what we were looking for!

2016-11-02

We also use it as a document storage library, allowing every associate an easy way to access any document they would need during the sales process or for their clients.

Pros

Ease of use and loading content. Love the library, shout out features and being able to see birthdays and work anniversarys

Cons

I wish it could be customized a bit more to fit some of our unique needs.

Best intranet out there

2016-11-02

It's a great way to organize people, documents and events. The search function makes finding everything you need a breeze.

Pros

Easy to use. Now training necessary.

Cons

It's a shared platform, so you can't customize.

Jostle is a great tool for organizing our company and keeping everyone in touch with each other

2017-09-05

Brand-wide communication with customizable feature that best fit out company's style.

Pros

How easy it is to start and reference conversations, make brand-wide announcements, and organize shift coverage through Classifieds

Cons

The "Teams" area is slightly hard to organize and a little less user friendly than the rest of the site.

A dedicated team and customer service makes a difference

2016-11-02

One main challenge we have is teaching them the essence of great internal communication and content sharing in moving the company towards our business objectives.

Pros

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

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

Protected data works great in Libraries.

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.

It’s Jostling-ly easy to use!

2020-03-24

It makes it easy to centralize everyone to a common ground that’s simple and easy to engage with.

Pros

This software can practically plugin to anything (to a certain extent). The UX\UI is so user friendly and easy to understand.

Cons

What could have made my life a lot easier would be for me to plug Jostle into my company’s CRM (since it already exists) instead of me pulling a report everyone I want to view how people are engaging with the content we put up.

Jostle filled survey

Jostle made it easy for teams to collaboration in a central environment.

Pros

It brought teams in a central location, where they mingled on files at ease.

Cons

However, Jostle lacked some vital features and that's why we decided to incorporate other robust features.

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.

OK Product

2021-06-23

Overall, just OK. It wasn't terrible but definitely had some room for improvement.

Pros

I liked the organization of it and how it was easy to put things in different places.

Cons

I didn't like how cumbersome it was and how it was tough to abide by the different rules and who had access to what.

Build a bond

2019-04-17

Overall this is an engaging program for your team, especially when the company is national. It's great during conferences and being able to collect contact information and keep a relationship going. Thanks, Jostle!

Pros

Share information to your company easily and make it fun!

Cons

Sometimes it's a nice reminder to see when someone's given you a shout out, or if you do not see a notification right away and want to look back it can be hard to sift through the new posts.

Easy, colorful, fun!

2019-08-15

Pros

We loved how easy it was to set up, how intuitive it is to use and how fun it can be.

Cons

Also, the discussions -- rather like a workplace-appropriate chat room for project or task oriented conversations -- did not work as well for us as we had hoped it would because people needed more prompts to go back in and view updated comments.

Hi there! Thank you for your review :). When you first log in there is an option you can choose that says "keep me logged in." That way clicking on a notification will take you right to it. If that option isnt' there, it means it was disabled by your organization.
