Open Social vs Simpplr
Simpplr has an impressive list of integrations and features. But without a developer in your team, these features can be challenging to implement and navigate for your organization.
For simple set up and community management in just days without the need for a developer, Open Social gives you a rich out of the box solution to start growing your community.
Open Social vs Vanilla
Vanilla software is incredibly easy to use but with lots of customization available. It also features a variety of handy plugins to expand your forum capability further.
Open Social has more features, that create value and help keep your members engaged. The more features offered, the more inclusive your community becomes.
Open Social vs Tribe
Open Social and Tribe offer many of the same basic online community features.
However, Tribe is much more focused on e-commerce and retail communities, and not on organizational, NGO, or goal-driven communities. On the other hand, Open Social offers a better choice for organizations that want a community that focuses on communication, collaboration and co-working.
Open Social vs Hivebrite
What makes Hivebrite unique is that it has a strong focus on the commercial side of online community creation, such as monetizing membership.
Open Social focus much more on the growth and development of your community. This is done through features such as graded e-learning courses, quizzes and certificates, crowd-innovation, and resource libraries.
