Ways the product benefits social media campaigns

Unity was designed to allow multiple team members and departments to work on social media marketing campaigns together. Each campaign’s engagement and responses can be tracked individually. Workspaces allow different teams to work on different projects and organize all social media activity related to a specific business objective, campaign or company department.

Coolest feature

Customer information from Unity can be integrated with existing CRM and business intelligence systems to avoid having multiple sets of data.

Feature rundown

  • Unity pre-filters conversations from across the web according to clients’ monitoring requirements. This enables replying directly from the platform – including in forums – without ever leaving it.
  • Unity has been designed to harvest comments in real time and route them to appropriate community managers based on criteria such as priority, influence, topic (complaint, sales lead, request, etc.) or status (in progress, responded, closed) to minimize the amount of time between data collection and brand response.
  • All responses can be tracked, so that administrators and team managers can monitor the progress of their team members, track the impact of corporate communications and show statistics on customer satisfaction, time to respond, number of complaints closed or in progress, etc.
  • Workflow attributes are customizable according to companies’ specific organization and business goals, with multiple user profiles and associated user access permissions.
