"Fantastic tool for employee advocacy."

What do you like best?

The tool's ease of use and scalability are among the most important and best features,, as one of the tool's admins. This has allowed us to encourage a good adoption rate across our team and made our investment in the tool very worthwhile.

What do you dislike?

The periodic integration issues with social media platforms is a challenge - however this isn't an issue of the tool directly, but due to changes made by the social media channels themselves. The Smarp support team works very quickly to resolve these, and the immediate communication around the changes is much appreciates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. This is a great tool whose license comes at a very competitive price. The real-time support provided is very helpful and the team's availability for ad-hoc training/suggestions/success monitoring is imperative to success.

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

Obtaining organic and genuine employee advocacy was the main issue we faced - we wanted company employees to support by boosting the corporate messages of the company to reach a larger audience.

"SMARP is easy to use, both for admins and users"

What do you like best?

SMARP offers an easy way to share big news from our company. It helps to boost recruiting and also makes it easy to get visibility for small, interesting details of our business. We operate in B2B and B2C business, and SMARP is a good tool for both sides of the business. But the best thing about SMARP is that it makes sharing so easy! Who has time to go through news about the company? To find new angles to the business? Or to find out, what the other departmens have achieved? Nobody! SMARP admins will do that - it is their job anyway - and create posts for everyone else. The users only need to share. And it's easy!

What do you dislike?

The post in SMARP must be really short - otherwise you'll lose some of the text when sharing it to Fb. It would be really convenient, if the system could warn you if the text is too long for some of the channels. It's really annoying if the SMARP-shared post in FB looks like this: "We have something really interesting now happening here. Our CEO has resently started..." and then the sentence breaks off. It's hard to try to guess, how long the posted text can be before FB cuts it.

IG sharing is not easy at all - screenshots of the pictures etc... That's why we are not using it (yet).

But these technical issues are just small things, and I think it has something to do with the rules of IG and FB. For us the hardest part is to motivate the employees to try SMARP. Those who have tried, have liked it a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The most important thing to do is to encourage the personell and the company management to join SMARP. That's also the hardest part.

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

In B2C business we use SMARP as one of our marketing channels. Our employees spread the word about our company and our events, and the posts get always really good reactions.

SMARP also works well in recruiting - people are sharing the recruiting advertisements with great comments about the work community.

"Employee Advocacy = Smarp"

What do you like best?

The best part of Smarp is that you can actually measure ROI. Example : Estimated Earned Media Value. In my case I was able to calculate my EEMV ie $2342. One more interesting feature is that Smarp provides an option to propose content. This also helps employees to propose and be part of the employee advocacy process. “SmarpScore” and the leaderboard is a great way to attract and inspire more employees to explore this platform.

What do you dislike?

Not sure if this comes under dislike category, but not able to schedule post on FB. We can schedule it on Twitter & LinkedIn. Wanted to also know if there are plans to include Instagram. Its more of a visual platform, but it will be interesting for companies to work on such content for Instagram.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are lots of Employee Advocacy platforms that are available in the market. But it all depends on what is your organizations requirements are. Are you looking for a platform that will help you create content, or you just need a platform that will publish the content. Smarp is one of the platforms that has created a first professional influencer index, named “SmarpScore”. This showcases the professional influence of employees and also measures the impact of the network.

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

We are currently working on creating brand ambassadors and providing a platform for employees to leverage Smarp. In short working creating a sense of belongingness and trust towards the company for employees.

"Using Smarp for your employee advocacy program is a no brainer"

What do you like best?

The platform is very intuitive, easy to navigate interface whether using on desktop or the mobile app.

The ease of which you can curate and make content available to share is a huge benefit, as well as sharing with just a few simple clicks

What do you dislike?

Not a huge issue but at the minute I have user frustration because Smarp can process GIFs or animations which users want to share

Recommendations to others considering the product

Smarp was selected after doing due diligence on a number of providers.

It speaks volumes that I've continued to use Smarp at 3 different companies

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

We had an abundance of employees who engaged with corporate content and had an appetite for sharing it.

Using Smarp fills a gap where employees wanted to share content but weren't sure if they were allowed/weren't sure what to share. Using the Smarp platform takes away the doubt and puts content at the fingertips of users that will not only help with brand awareness, but helps position our employees as the thought leaders and go to people in the industry.

Our users are enjoying using the platform and are recommending it to colleagues. In terms of training users, we can't keep up with demand.

ROI proved in less than 6 months. Greater brand awareness.

"INNAX has become more social thanks to Smarp"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use. It's very easy for other employee's to adopt the platform if they've used social media. There is little to no explanation needed for someone to get started. The platform makes sharing content with co-workers and social media easy without the hassle and commitment of time to find content. The only time they need to invest is the time to interact on the social media platforms itself.

What do you dislike?

I would like my users to post links themselves without having an admin to approve the post first.

There is an expected level of trust in my colleagues. If they wan to share something on LinkedIn they can share it via their personal account either way without using Smarp.

To have an admin approve content seems old fashioned.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Certainly try it! It doesn't cost much compared to other services.

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

Getting our employee's visible on LinkedIn in our Thought Leadership program. Having our employee's engaging or starting threads/discussions on social media makes them appear more knowledgeable and increases the awareness of the brand INNAX because they work at our office.

"Smarp should be part of every BtoB social media strategy."

What do you like best?

Smarp is the best tool to get even inexperienced employees in social media. The greatest benefit is the simplicity of sharing content across different platforms (as an editor) and the simplicity for users to share and schedule this content.

What do you dislike?

That it is not possible to tag companies and users (Facebook, LinkedIn) and that only 1 photo can be shared.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Nowadays it is more important to continuously send short and easy to understand messages than long complicated texts. Smarp is a tool that allows employees to send these messages themselves.

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

We are in BtoB business with a very small target group worldwide. Smarp enables us to bring information to our target group in a smart way. The most important people in our markets are usually the business contacts of our sales staff. So that fits very well. Smarp is an important part of the overall strategy when it comes to showing company content to the target group.

"Efficient tool for employees to keep track of information flow and share in their own channels."

What do you like best?

From a user view it's the easiness in sharing informative content on your own walls of social media channels and from an admin view it's the analytics I get out of it.

What do you dislike?

From a user perspective that I can't share posts in fb groups from the app (only desktop) and that video shares don't play automatically. From an admin view it's the unsteadiness (every now and then something that doesn't work either for admins or users) and that the analytics tool isn't more flexible: I'd like to be able to easily check what posts are creating hi's, ie. peaks and also keep track on clicks/share without having the trouble of exporting to excel.

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

Foremost giving our consultants and sales people a way of building their personal brand on social media and lowering the stales for posting and of course also to enhance information flow/internal communication.

"Review of KPMG Switzerland"

What do you like best?

- simple interface, intuitive use

- very good support from the whole smarp team (account manager, IT support)

- helpful review meetings with account manager

- interesting analytics insights

What do you dislike?

- some functionalities such as uploading media assets natively (videos, gifs) must be improved!

- some users share simply everything for the sake of gathering points. Maybe it needs restrictions that are made within the system. Example: A user is not able to share more than 2 posts within 2 hours...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Is Smarp headed in the right direction? I answered with "No".

I believe that enhancing user experience like the current product switch (tags --> channels) is important, nevertheless Smarp has to focus on also enhancing the look and feel of how the posts are going to be displayed externally on the various social media plattforms!

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

- unfold the communicative power of our staff

- activate staff to help increase awareness for our campaigns/services/content

- increase social media maturity in general (enablement)

"User-friendly employee advocacy tool"

What do you like best?

I like that both the admin features and regular user features are very user-friendly. I had to do minimum training with our employees who were selected to be a part of our employee-advocacy program. I also liked being able to create categories and then assign employees to those categories. This allowed me to set up employees as subject matter experts in certain topics but having them consistently share only on those topics. I also really enjoy their analytics tools. It allows me to quickly see what kind of reach and engagement we're getting from our employees' posts.

What do you dislike?

In their last update, they did make it more cumbersome to categorize the social media posts. It now takes me longer to find and select those categories. I also did not like their app. It wasn't as easy to use as the desktop version of the site.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have a smaller pool of employees using Smarp than their packages are set up for. If you have a small business or a small pool of select employees working in your advocacy program, I suggest asking them about special pricing for your smaller team. It worked for us!

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

We knew that social media posts by people received 3x the CTR than social media posts by brands. Smarp helped us take advantage of this by making it easier for our employees to share our content on social media. We saw a decent estimated earned media value, and an uptick in visits to our blog when employees were sharing our posts.

"Use of SMARP Employee Advocacy Tool for Logicom "

What do you like best?

The 2 best features of SMARP are its ease of use, and the fact that it makes it both easy and fun for employees to share company information in a competitive way.

What do you dislike?

The fact that the messages can't be personalized makes the posts appear rather automated, with everyone sharing the exact same message.

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

Smarp has allowed our employees to become proactive in sharing and disseminating information about our company, our partners, and our news, and this has led to a wider reach of the Logicom news and greater engagement and interaction from colleagues.

"An effective instrument for positioning employees and (specialist) topics on the social web"

What do you like best?

A mature platform with a clear focus on employee advocacy. Easy to use in daily business for admins and users thanks in large part to the app.

What do you dislike?

Too much weight is given to the gamification aspect (points, rankings). It is not about recommending or sharing as many items as possible; it has more to do with quality.

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

When it comes to covering specialist topics, Smarp will generate additional range/penetration and allow us to address topic communities in a targeted way. Employees can likewise position themselves on their channels with curated, topical content.

"Top knowledge sharing / employer advocacy platform"

What do you like best?

Very user-friendly platform. You can learn to use it in a few minutes. Helps a lot publish useful content to social channels.

For admin: easy to manage users, teams, channels.

Strong analytical tools.

Integration with other apps is easy.

What do you dislike?

I'm happy with the platform, have no problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have many other similar products available on the market. Smarp is the best for me. It's developing fast and getting better and better.

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

We use Smarp mostly for content distribution, sales support and empolyer branding.

"Happy and convinced admin."

What do you like best?

I love that Smarp is as user-friendly and innovative as it is. Whether you are the most talented or experienced ... or the least, you can easily apply Smart. I see it every day when I onboard employees who are most often not SoMe experts and most often are not digital natives.

What do you dislike?

As an admin I sometimes miss that data is easier to access - that it is in my face, at least the main numbers. So I do not need to look for the analysis part ... but for example during each post, in my feed, see data on it etc. Otherwise it is overall small details, all development ideas are passed on to Neea and Lars :-)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Second to none, this is the best employee advocacy platform.

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

A very clear advantage of Smarp, which my ambassadors again and again and again tell me, is that they achieve a GREAT insight into our company - which they otherwise did not get, unless they themselves sought out information. In other words, Smarp also works as a knowledge-sharing platform - and in this way brands not only our company externally, but to a degree also internally.

I like the fact that the platform is easy to use (good UX) and that I can get timely feedback whenever I need it (support, improvement of the tool).

It takes time to implement new features such as Image upload box.

"Strongly recommended solution to enhance your Employee Advocacy initiatives"

What do you like best?

The easiness of use, security, compatibility with mobile, desktop and all devices.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really, there are only features to like

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just ask for a demo and be pleasantly surprised by the versatility of the solution, but also the amazing customer support offered by the Smarp team.

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

Providing our employees with a secure platform where they can find, propose and share content on their own social media profiles (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Xing, Weibo and more to be added soon). Very positive feedback from our employees and an impressive commitment to share content and, therefore, help promote our company as an attractive employer.

"SmarpShare Review"

What do you like best?

I really like the way that posts and stories are laid out on the homepage. I think having the title of the post/article written over the picture makes it very use-friendly and makes it easy to scroll through and find things which are of interest or relevance to me. The stats about shares, reactions and clicks are also one of my favourite features. Knowing that I can see how successful my posts have been in that respect has given me more of an incentive to share things. The leaderboard is always fun too, though probably not as interesting for people who aren't in the top 10. The font on SmarpShare looks great as it's professional but reads very clearly as well.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing that I'd say I necessarily dislike. However, I'm wondering if there are other things I could be using SmarpShare for which I'm not aware of as far as I understand it's an area where articles/news/posts can be shared, but there are no forums or discussion areas. On the other hand, the simplicity of SmarpShare is one of the things I like most about it.

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

I enjoy reading lots of different types of articles. I often find stories about office environments, psychology etc. interesting, but I wouldn't necessarily say that I feel I'm solving any problems.

"SmarpShare = A fabulous tool!"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to find content and share it across my social channels. I hear a lot of positive feedback from my colleagues about the scheduling feature. It helps drive the point that being active on social media does not have to take up a lot of your day.

What do you dislike?

As an admin for our team, I wish it was easier to communite straight from the tool with all members. It would be great to do push notifications to those that have accounts, but haven't connected their social accounts, or to those that have connected but aren't active.

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

We have seen our SOV go up significantly, which is amazing! As a social media manager that's a big goal and SmarpShare has enabled the social media team to equip employees with optimized content that contributes toward our SOV. The tool has also helped a lot of our Salesforce. They've mentioned how much easier it is to connect with their current and potential customers by being active on social media (and pushing out content relevent to their customers).

Smarp is best way to engage people. Excellent and fast service ( my experience is only from Finland) too.

There is a handful on technologal problems, which needs to be resolved. Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn change quite often their AI:s. Also media is incresingly going behind paywalls, which is problematic for Smarp.

We want to engage our personnel to use social media, and help them to raise public awareness about our organisation and about our acitivities. A few of our executives use service, because it is simple and quick way to increase their own public influence.
