Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • I love the user interface for Hootsuite, it is clean simple and the reporting is great. It is also very easy to use.

  • Easy to learn. Easy to use . The additions while sometimes annoying I love. It is also mobile with an app I can do while on the road

  • Cons

  • The interface is not as intuitive as some other products we use, but once you get used to it the tool is easy to navigate.

  • It is a great software, but it is very limited with the free version. You are only able to select a few profiles, and sites to post from and to.

  • Pros

  • The ease of use is great, I love taking the conversation from the website to texting, and it's great for that. It also makes it pretty easy to request reviews, and so that is great.

  • Easy to use. Love the ability to assign conversations to me so I can seamlessly start answering questions and making appts with customers

  • Cons

  • Set-up was easy however it took use a while to get everyone to use the program as intended. Took a little while to set-up.

  • Sometimes the home page can glitch, but it's always resolved momentarily.
