uberVU is a social media monitoring solution built to manage your company's presence from all aspects: engagement, analytics, social automation and collaboration. Working with popular names such as Microsoft, BBDO, and Paypal, uberVU gives companies the tools to gather sound insight about their brand, industry and competition.

This web-based system was designed to pull data from multiple platforms and combine it into one easily accessible, social intelligence dashboard. Signals is their feature that scans mentions and conversations of your brand. It recognizes actionable information like trending stories and spikes in volume, and mentions from influencers. From there, it helps you prepare for your next action and set alerts to track the response.

We really like the advanced tools they have for maximizing engagement with your audience. Their analytics help users detect when most fans are online and uncover opportunities to get the right information in front of them. uberVU suggests popular content to share that is pertinent to your industry. Their Influencers tool identifies personalities who are already participating in the conversation and Smart Scheduling automatically times your posts to position them in front of the largest audience.

uberVU is priced based on streams, not number of users or mentions. It is a great fit for businesses across markets looking for a software that will help them manage and track their social media efforts from every angle.

    Where Insights shines is it's real time data, that most don't offer. You have to wait for things to be compiled into reports before you can view them. With Insights, you are able to view your reach and social streams in real time, to quickly analyze the interactions and reach of your posts.

    It anaylyzes SO many sources to help you handle your metrics and know what stream is going to be more productive for you to focus on, and what customers are clicking and interacting with at any given time.

    You can also post updates from an RSS feed, and it has mobile apps and customized reports, which are great for those of us working on the go, or needing specific analytics per report.

    Cons

    I utilized Hootsuite Insights through another author that had it, and helped her figure out where to focus her marketing. It seemed like a decent program and well built, so when I got back home, I decided to investigate it for myself.

    Imagine my surprise when there is no pricing information to be found on their website. You need to contact a salesperson to get any information on price, which is a huge turn-off right off the bat. Needing to contact someone to learn basic costs tells us we likely can't afford it, and makes it a high pressure situation instead of letting us gather all our facts first before narrowing down companies.

    From research I've done, it seems like the costs just continue adding up- using a URL shortener, getting more than 2 reports, adding untold costs to your yearly spend. There are cheaper services out there that don't nickle and dime you with every single thing.

    Logging into uberVU is the first thing I do every morning. In the time it takes for me to finish my first cup of coffee, I can view my Signals dashboard, check on assigned tasks, and see key metrics.

    Cons

    The cost. Yes it's worth it, but when budgets are small it's a premium priced tool that many users will never get the chance to use.

    The instant feedback about social media users viewing patterns and habits is really innovative. I also really like that the information is displayed in a user friendly way.

    Cons

    I can't really complain much about this product. Sometimes the processing speed is a little slow moving from page to page but sometimes I feel like that could be our own Internet speed and not the companies fault.

    uberVU Review – Use Social Media to Gain Brand Insights

    Quality
    Support
    N/A

    uberVU’s tools fall into a few main categories. The bread and butter of the product is a feature called “Streams.” A Stream can be a themed search or a connected social profile, like a Twitter or Facebook page. In most cases, businesses will set up Streams as a way to track what people are saying about their brands online, using uberVU’s tools to filter out mentions from specific sources (like notoriously biased blogs, for example) or geographic locations (like foreign countries).

    Pros

    Real-time insights give brands a head start when a crisis erupts.

    Cons

    Some features may be too sophisticated for small to mid-size companies.
