Agent efficiency, automation, and operational insights
“We looked at a number of other social platforms while we evaluated Khoros, and we felt the service levels, user experience, platform stability, and cost were the best balance for our organization.”
— Head of Marketing Technology, Springer Nature
The most important difference between Khoros and Sprout Social is that Khoros is scalable, and not just a starter solution. The Khoros platform is built to grow with enterprises, with deep analytics and reporting that go far beyond basic dashboards like the ones in the Sprout Social solution.
Khoros is a clear leader in social media management, and customers who switch from Sprout Social or SFDC see a clear difference.
Sprout Social has a simple and intuitive UI, with a fast time to value — but with that speed, customers sacrifice crucial features and functionality. Khoros solutions offer a more complete tool which you can tailor to meet complex business needs, yet still implement in a matter of days. For an enterprise brand that values a thriving presence on social media, the choice is clear.

“Customer support is where Khoros most shines. Q&A sessions, coaching sessions, ticket support, etc. are all fantastic.”
— Digital Marketing (Social), Automobile Club of Southern California
“Khoros provides a simple yet in-depth solution to manage and engage with followers, as well as share and moderate content.”
“Khoros’ platforms are adaptable for Midco’s changing needs, and have allowed us to use Khoros as a one-platform solution for all our digital needs.”
— Customer Care Manager, Midco
“Every other year, we evaluate social media monitoring, engagement, analytics, and display tools. Khoros consistently comes out on top for its strong products, great support, competent services team, and fair price point. I highly recommend them for organizations that want a single tool to manage their social platforms.”
— Marketing Manager, computer software company
Khoros is scalable and not just a starter tool. It is built to grow with a company’s social media and digital programs. Khoros is built for enterprises, not SMB. Sprout Social can’t keep up with the complexity enterprise companies demand as it is designed more so for individuals and smaller teams.
Khoros has the breadth and depth of solutions to create a robust digital engagement platform. Sprout’s social care solution lacks many key capabilities offered by Khoros Care.
“Sprout has timely and thorough customer support, but their efficient support is again related to their minimal UI, reducing the need for more complex problem solving. The Khoros team has years of experience dealing with the world's largest enterprise brands and are battle-tested for any situation and any sized client.”

Sprout has a lower price point, but Khoros provides proven enterprise functionality and dedicated partnership out of the gate, and scales as your digital engagement strategy grows without the need for additional cost.

"Having a secure, branded messaging strategy is very important for Sprint. Adding messaging to our platform in order to bring customers’ personal data into support conversations makes the customer feel more secure, and it makes our legal team feel more secure as well.”
“[Khoros] uniquely couples social engagement with community content. Users can measure agent performance to align with traditional contact center metrics, which is a convenient feature.”

Benchmarks from hundreds of enterprise communities, guidance from free product coaching and a variety of experts, and connection to over 70,000 professionals in our Atlas community help customers innovate.
Our connection to Khoros Care unlocks enhanced moderation and analysis tools like moderation queues, shared inbox, dashboards, real-time analytics, and a unified support queue for social and community.
Khoros has been a leader in brand communities for over 15 years with a robust platform to build unique experiences and create powerful, engaged networks.
“They are a leader in this space. No other platform can come close to the ability to securely scale and power massive communities/page views. If you are running a consumer-grade or enterprise-grade community with millions of views a month - you need to be sure you have a platform that will deliver.”
“We wanted a Community platform with consistent enterprise-level abilities as well as a history that showcased staying power and could support a long-term partnership. That’s why we chose Khoros.
“We evaluated over 20 other social media management systems before choosing Khoros. No one else offered the workflows, audit trails, and permissions-based systems we needed to scale our social efforts across the company in an intelligent way. In other words, no other systems were close to Khoros in terms of being truly enterprise-ready.”
“Khoros is very easy to use and has a great CSM team that makes us feel supported. We didn't feel that the others could manage the number of accounts and users we had available and would be more difficult for our regional teams to use. The layout and analytics reports are easy to read and understand for non-social audiences.” Social Media Professional, education company”
