Only compliments

We were able to set up a site that had a customised digital library, forum, member profiles, and built-in live event broadcasting within just a few weeks. Thanks a lot Forumbee!

Pros

Thoughtful, simple and well designed, Forumbee's software is easy to use and simple to set-up and customise. Our team and the platform's users find it very intuitive. All the essential security and reporting features are also available. Many thanks to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who helped with the design, account set-up, support, training and everything else for the project.

Cons

There could be one or two additional features (e.g. Zoom integration) but it's better to have a simpler well-built product than some of the complex services available in the market.

Reasons for Choosing Forumbee

Better design, better support, faster installation.

Reasons for Switching to Forumbee

Forum functionality was lacking on Moodle.

Easy to Use Community and Knowledge Base

Overall a great experience with implementing the tool. Our Forumbee instance looks exactly like our own site and it blends in seamlessly.

Pros

The Support I received from Forumbee was great! Our Account Manager was with us for the whole journey and I appreciated their willingness to help and answer any questions we had.

Cons

There's little things here and there like we wish we could make events recurring.

Reasons for Choosing Forumbee

The price and the low amount of dev resources needed for implementation.

Thoughts on Forumbee

This has been a very good tool for Incorta and got us a really great community site with almost no build effort on our own.

Pros

The product is really easy to use and administer. The customer support is world class, consultative, and creative when it comes to problem solving.

Cons

There certainly are areas of the product I wish were a bit more configurable, like showing information about posters to others, allowing for posters to carry badges or show accomplishments.

Forumbee Was a Game Changer for Our Organization

The experience with Forumbee has been one of the best I've had with any service company to date. We work with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who is incredibly responsive, informed and gets anything we need done quickly and correctly. The platform is top-notch and so is the staff.

Pros

We have members around the world so for our organization the community aspect and ability for members to connect so easily through the platform is terrific. Its so simple to use and user-friendly and the security features are very good which was important to us.

Cons

We haven't come across anything that we haven't liked or has been a challenge yet.

The most intuitive SAAS product in our tech stack

We’ve had an amazing experience with Forumbee - from the demo stage in learning about their product to the launch of this service across our entire company. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is fantastic to work with - I appreciate we’ve had the same contact the entire time making the onboarding process seamless. The service is intuitive, highly customizable and was an incredibly smooth experience to get adoption quickly across the entire company. As someone who tested multiple knowledge management systems over the course of a year and could never find something that met all our needs, Forumbee solved so many of our problems. We’ve had no issues whatsoever after deciding to move forward with them. I could not recommend them enough.

Pros

After a year long search, we settled on Forumbee and couldn’t be happier with this decision. Whether you’re a user or admin, the user experience is incredibly intuitive. In addition to this, the service we receive is fantastic, especially from our dedicated rep [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]. She responds to every question within a matter of hours. We are a very process heavy organization and this service has been a game changer in having a central hub of documentation, giving our people the answers they need in the quickest and easiest route.

Cons

While the customization in matching our website is great, there’s limitations in how much we can customize within an actual article like easily embedding videos.
