Pros: The way in which it easily display the core information to the leadership team. Streamlining decisions and empowering users to easily get their voice heard

Cons: There is not a lot not to like about the software, perhaps more analytics and tracking can be provided to user who submitted the idea would be beneficial, allowing them to see the traction and feel rewarded for their efforts

Thanks for your review - We're currently building out our analytics function to include even more insight, so stay tuned for that.

Having only used the platform for a few months (with no training) I can say it's very easy to use!

Pros: The software is easy to use and as a complete novice I could find my way around the platform with little trouble. Navigating from different sections was simple enough and I like that you can filter down on options as well as downloading reports.
The platform has a modern look and feel which makes it visually pleasing to use and that is a must for me.
A word on Hugh, who has been supporting me on my usage. He is very helpful, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Also, he doesn¿t make me feel silly when I am asking questions ¿ however easy they may be!

Cons: I havent come across anything as yet that I dont like. I believe that I am still scratching the surface with the software though and I still have a lot to learn!

Overall: Reporting tools and the monitoring of campaigns is great.

Pros: How straightforward and interactive it is. The analytics features are also great and with the introduction of customisable fields, it really helps me to analyse my content.

Cons: Could do with some additional analytics features and a more ability to customise for specific users (as in different users can have their own 'profile' for view and feature settings)

Overall: A consise and intuitive way to present and share information, analyse data and manage workloads

Thanks for the review. We're working hard on improving all aspects of the Sideways 6 platform, including reporting. Watch this space :)

We did only a pilot and used it for 3 campaigns we organized.

Pros: Depth of analytics and ease of use. It was quickly set up. I also like the sentiment and wordcloud parts of the reporting.

Cons: There is nothing in particular I don't like. Report downloading could be improved - made easier with visuals. More insight into the negative sentiment - i.e. what it actually means. 'Thank you' messages, when posted as posts, took a while to appear.
