"Great tool to connect our Alumni community"

What do you like best?

The map to connect and network alumni and the company database. Being able to synchronize with LinkedIn is an added value. User friendly, great design, intuitive back office and a great post sales service. We are a network of universities around the world and each of the Deans & career staff that evaluated the tool was impressed. Its a great way of putting together users with different profiles: staff, students & alumni. The jobs tab is great.

What do you dislike?

I think the "news" tab could be improved by adding more design and more ways of displaying info. Your suggestions as a user to improve the software need to be ranked as interesting by other users before being implemented. I think that regardless the votes a suggestion has a good idea/suggestion should be always taken into consideration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will recommend it because of its great design and impressive amount of tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hivebrite tool is helping us to organize events, and keep a tight bond with out alumni. It raises the network effect and helps us to interact globally. As it synchronizes profiles automatically with LinkedIn (when people sign in) it saves time to the users so they don't need to recreate their profile into the app again.

"Great idea but UX could use a lift"

What do you like best?

It provides a great avenue to create a white label social network for a private organization or a club. We use it for our national student organization and its easier to use due to integration with LinkedIn, so we don't have to put all the information and profile pictures again.

What do you dislike?

The user experience for the app is not cutting edge modern. I like the idea of the software because it lets you create a profile, add friends and connections, upload files but it feels so forced and unorganic. It's not very fun to use and does not make me come back again and again unlike other networks.

One of the suggestions would be to improve the recommendations. To do this, the software could nudge the users to fill the information like university name or even email to match them with other users from the same organization.

File management is also a big area of improvement. If they are able to improve it, it would be very helpful in sharing files with the sub-groups within the network.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great product if you want to bring every one of your dispersed members on the same page in a private and controlled environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a student organization, our need was to get everyone of the student members from tens of different campuses in a secure, private social network where we could share files, connect and hang out in a controlled way. Hivebrite does that wonderfully but there are always things that could be improved.

"Use Hiverbrite !!!"

What do you like best?

The highlights offered by Hivebrite stage are extremely helpful for both end-clients and the chairman. One preferred standpoint is the likelihood to interface with channels like LinkedIn streamlines the login for clients: one less secret phrase to recall! What's more, the more straightforward it is, the more noteworthy number of individuals will remain associated which will encourage the heads' employments. The best favorable position of this stage is that it is always moving forward. The Hivebrite group mulls over each recommendation so as to grow new highlights that improve the clients' experience considerably further. Other preferred standpoint is the intelligent guide and "registration" are an amazing device for graduated class to discover every others and fortify the system. Other preferred standpoint is the likelihood to make sections is a standout amongst the most critical highlights for our system. Through the part live feed, graduated class can examine the well known themes in their nations or compose more social affairs autonomously. For administrator, this feature helps in part administration and making more prominent graduated class networks far and wide.

What do you dislike?

A few highlights like textual style, shading, estimating, and general alters are not costumizable. In any case, I trust this is something that is being created so it's extremely just a developing agony that Hivebrite is acclimating to!

Recommendations to others considering the product

You only need a computer and a network connection !!! If you have any problem you only have to contact with the technical support and they will give you the answer. Utilize it !!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been an extraordinary delight to work with Hivebrite group and to acquaint this stage with graduated class. Hivebrite is a genuine win-win arrangement: an easy to use and fun stage for graduated class; and basic administration and solid help for the graduated class affiliation. The stage offers a simple access to the graduated class from anyplace and more chances to draw in and remain associated. Additionally, the Hivebrite group is continually enhancing everybody's understanding by currently tuning in to recommendations and finding creative answers for all solicitations.

"Great Software with limitations"

What do you like best?

Hivebrite's community management platform allows users can access from desktop, mobile, & tablet - it's like a mix of FB, messenger, Linkedin, Dropbox, and more! I love the searchable directory feature because it has such robust search features that are customized by the admin. Search results are displayed on an interactive map. Seach fields come by adding additional fields to the user profile most of which are customizable. User responses on their profile can be clicked on to find other users with the same interests. Also love the media center feature that functions as a dropbox and now allow users to upload as well. we upload a lot of files, videos, and images. We learn a lot about our users by their interactions and we receive this information through backend analytics. The backend admin experience is easy as well! great integrations such as google anayltics and suvey monkey.

What do you dislike?

While there are many great features that are significant limitations. The biggest is that the platform isn't responsive to mobile - which all the features are the same, they often appear crunched or cut off on the app. Display images aren't responsive to the zoom of the screen so they often get cut off. Can not search media center by keyword. No notifications for the livefeed so a lot of content gets lost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hivebrite staff is super attentive and always there to answer questions and re-teach tutorials. They are constantly optimizing and improving their product and really take feedback into consideration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Looking to foster deeper relationships between our program participants we wanted an app that they could use to find one another and connect on personal as well as business levels.

"Great Applicaiton"

What do you like best?

I like that you can import all your members along with all their profile data into your database. Moreover, the option to export your member data whenever you want as a universal CSV file is great. Thre great thing is that the structure of the site is well set up. - The map interface of the `Events' of `People' is easy to use and invites you to connect with. relevant fellow alumni and happenings

What do you dislike?

I believe that the bad thing is that you cannot export user statistics. Sometimes you encounter some bugs as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been a great pleasure to work with Hivebrite team and to introduce this platform to alumni. As a luxury institution, we needed a unique product that would offer a high-quality solution for our end-users and optimise the current alumni network. This is exactly what we got from Hivebrite - a true win-win solution: a user-friendly and fun platform for alumni; and simple management and strong support for the alumni association

"Finding Hivebrite was a gift. Our team loves it"

What do you like best?

Hivebrite has allowed us to tailor the look & feel of our CERN Alumni community site as we needed to. The back office is simple and very powerful, and allows full customization of most aspects of the front office offered to our network members. The support team is great and offers personalized support.

What do you dislike?

It has happened that the software did not behave consistently on different supported browsers, which has caused confusion. The synchronization with LinkedIn has had its issues in the past.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We were looking for a database, alumni platform and a workspace (groupe with feed, media center, event for meeting and deadline..) and billingual and this fit perfectly

"Great starting option for creating a social platform"

What do you like best?

Hivebrite is easy to use and fairly simple to customize. The integration with LinkedIn is a plus and allows for a more seamless flow and user experience. The directory feature is also a great add, and in general I think it looks clean.

What do you dislike?

While customization is fairly simple, Hivebrite just doesn't allow for more complex and specific changes. We haven't fully launched on Hivebrite yet, but just from testing it out I'm not sure that it provides enough additional flair/options to differentiate it from other platforms and encourage further adoption.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through Hivebrite, our hope is that we can easily engage program members and foster community building.

"Nice Platform With Some Constraints"

What do you like best?

The overall product is solid and we found it relatively easy to use. The support was great even with a major time difference. As we would need changes, they would take the comments back to their programmers and adapt it some time.

What do you dislike?

The tool is evolving, which is good in some aspects, but bad in some as we would want to have some capability and that was not going to be available until a later release

Recommendations to others considering the product

The tool works, the problem is user habits and getting them to come back to your community

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to create a robust online community for past users and this allowed us the ability to attempt that.
