"Jostle has been a great tool to engage staff, share communications, and be our knowledge repository"

What do you like best?

I like the Jostle’s search bar the most. It allows you to search the entire site (news, library, people, discussions etc). It also searches within most documents (depending on how it is created) so if the employee is looking for a procedure document, they don’t need the title to ensure it displays in the search results.

The News screen is awesome, which contains an activity feed for shout-outs, birthday's, anniversaries etc... as well as the News items to the right. Staff are updated on everything that is going on, and you can publish news to targeted groups, which makes the News section tailored to the individual. Filter options throughout the screens also allow an individual to customize their Jostle view!

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike, since things that I have disliked or thought could be improved on in the past, actually were addressed. This was done via the Suggest a Feature option they have. Jostle really listens to what the users have to say!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We improved communication with the News and Discussion sections. We have also provided staff with a central spot to open all their other important sites that they access in the day (Links screen). Jostle is our default web browser homepage.

We have also reduced the amount of emails that are sent out and improved team collaboration by having team specific discussion threads. Finally we have solved the issue of needing a knowledge repository with enhanced search functionality which Jostle provides.

"I can't imagine our workplace without Jostle"

What do you like best?

We have been using Jostle since mid-2014. Jostle is a complete, intuitive intranet that helps us improve employee engagement, express our culture and make communication happen. It is much more than a typical run-of-the-mill intranet, it acts as an internal social media platform, helping make our workplace connected and super engaged. Several of our employees work from home, so previously there was never a way for all our employees to get to know one another. Before Jostle, we communicated via email or at our monthly staff lunches. Jostle was easy to implement, doesn't cost a fortune and the user interface design is great.

What do you dislike?

Some of the admin functions are hard to navigate. I usually have to spend a few minutes trying to figure out how to do something new. Multiple photos (for galleries) can be slow to upload.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Talk to the helpful customer success team. If you need help convincing decision makers, they can provide lots of resources. I can honestly say you couldn't go wrong choosing Jostle.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quicker onboarding for new employees. When new staff join, they make the transition a lot faster thanks to Jostle. They can get to know their coworkers through Jostle profiles and in turn feel more comfortable talking to others around the office.

Improved cross business unit transfers of knowledge. Before Jostle, it was commonplace for employees not to know what other employees were working on.

Better event promotion and increased participation.

A better hand on what employees like and don’t like (though the 'polls' function).

Better peer recognition. The shout-out feature has helped make us a more supportive and less competitive environment.

What Team Collaboration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great, user-friendly platform to connect employees!"

What do you like best?

Jostle is very user-friendly. The design is great and laid out in a straightforward way that makes the platform easy for anyone to use. My favorite aspect is the Activity feed because you can shout-out employees or their hard work or share a photo!

What do you dislike?

I wish Jostle could be a separate application on our desktop computers or laptops, instead of a website, so that it reminds employees to use everyday.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great platform to connect your employees and to communicate more effectively and efficiently!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We started Jostle because we needed a platform to help connect our employees across different offices and share information in an efficient manner. Jostle has helped us learn more about our team, share updates without having to clog people's emails, and house all of our company's important documents via Library.

"Jostle is Fantastic!"

What do you like best?

It's so easy to use! It's a great way to communicate with people at our business locations across the country. The people at Jostle are so helpful with any questions or concerns I have.

What do you dislike?

We have people in our company who speak english and others who speak only spanish. There is currently no way to automatically translate the content posted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's so easy to use and understand. The mobile app makes is even more accessible to people whose job is not at a computer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It provides a way to give recognition to employees. It's a go-to place to find important documents and policies. It helps us build employee engagement and a positive work culture.

"Best work communication tool!"

What do you like best?

So easy to use. Adding, changing, sharing is all seamless. It's one place for staff to go to find information about the library and about their coworkers. It makes people feel more a part of the whole organization

What do you dislike?

Not a dislike so much as a wish that it worked more seamlessly with Google suite of apps. I'd like to see video chat and real time chat available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolutely wonderful support. Cheerful people to work with who don't just leave you once you're set-up. They improve and upgrade on a regular basis that actually make sense and are useful. What a refreshing change. Jostle makes all the difference in our library's ability to share, communicate, and collaborate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Jostle has been amazing for communicating across the district. We have four locations and 50 employees...so not a large organization. But we use Jostle for most of our district-wide communication, sharing, and collaborating. We require that staff check it daily for updates and more and more staff are posting and sharing. It's been fun watching people engage with one another.

"Useful tool "

What do you like best?

I like the libraries feature in jostle. All important documents can be stored for everyone to grab when needed, instead of digging through an old file folder looking one page of the employee handbook from 2015.

What do you dislike?

It's honestly too much like a casual social media site sometimes. I don't want to have a facebook-like tool used at work, but that's what it ends up feeling like sometimes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a great alternative to emailing everyone in the company about an event or situation. Set up correctly, you can see these alerts the moment you log in, and I really appreciate it. Also with events it lets you add to Outlook from Jostle, which is good for Outlook users.

"People Engagement & Streamlining Internal Communications"

What do you like best?

User-friendliness, People & Teams feature.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike about the Jostle Platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some time to demo the product and talk to the very helpful and supportive folks at Jostle. Also, read their customer case studies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Jostle's platform keeps our employees engaged across different geographic locations through it's centralized News, People, Discussions, Library and Org-wide Links features. IT is the most important platform in our organization when it comes to culture and internal communications. Besides the traditional emails and phone calls, there is now a deeper connection between colleagues across locations - all of which is possible with Jostle's dynamic and engaging collaborative platform. Whether it's through our diverse news content, discussions or updates/shout-outs, every employee at Per Scholas has a voice, which contributes to a positive and unified corporate culture.

"Jostle has been a great tool to bring our company together."

What do you like best?

We enjoy using the news feed to give shout outs, as well as share pictures from projects our different teams are accomplishing in all of our different markets. We also enjoy posting articles showing current events that relate to our industry as well as articles about things going on company-wide.

What do you dislike?

I actually have two different Jostle accounts for two different sister companies. I wish I could have both accounts open simultaneously, but instead I have to logout of one to login to the other.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Jostle is a great collaborating tool that unites all our employees over different business units. It truly helps to strengthen our synergy as a diverse company and keep our momentum going as a team while we share each others successes.

"One-Stop-Site for our needs!"

What do you like best?

The versatility of Jostle makes it super easy to keep a bunch of different information in one place.

What do you dislike?

There are a few features that would be great to have more flexibility with when looking to personalize the site for our own specific needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication between staff, managers and upper management have been a lot more easily executed through Jostle than before. It allows us to make company wide announcements, or announcements to a specific group of employees.

"Excellent product that keeps our employees in touch and connected."

What do you like best?

The interface is intuitive and requires minimal training. As an organisation with limited back office staff, we needed an intranet that required minimal support from both the HR and IT functions. Jostle takes the hassle away from maintaining and supporting the intranet.

What do you dislike?

In some place, the functionality could be considered to be a little bit limited when compared to other intranets on the market. However, what Jostle does, it does very well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to simple to use Intranet that requires minimal support, Jostle is the product. If you are looking for an extremely sophisticated Intranet with lots of complicated functionality, then maybe you should look elsewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our previous intranet was very one directional with no interction with the staff. We were looking for something that allowed a two way conversation. As nearly half our staff work either from their home office or very small regional offices, we wanted something that connected us all together.

We have over 90% of staff logging into Jostle on a regular basis and discovered unknown expertise from within the workplace.

"An excellent social intranet!"

What do you like best?

The presentation and layout of content.

What do you dislike?

Nothing since they've updated the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Jostle offers a great experience to staff. I like that it's a social platform that's unique in its presentation - it keeps it focussed on being a social platform for work but is still very enjoyable to use and administer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The platform has enabled our growing company to communicate better across offices and regions, keeping staff aware of progress and events. It's become a great method for staff to learn about the company but also be engaged in defining our corporate culture as it evolves and changes. It's a fun way for people to keep informed and interact with their coworkers and has helped us strengthen our sense of team through its various options for engagement.

"Easy & User-Friendly Way to Bring Team Communication Together In One Space"

What do you like best?

Jostle is super easy to implement & use for anyone. It truly makes it simple to have a 'one-stop-shop' for all employees at every level to have access to company tools & to share ideas with each other daily.

What do you dislike?

The layout is simple but it would be nice to be able to customize the layout ourselves.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For any company growing fast with locations/staff in varying locations, Jostle is a great 'common ground' where everyone has access to key information at the tap of a finger.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has created a space where all employees, regardless of location or level, have access to information & can share struggles, ideas & solutions.

"Competent internal comms software "

What do you like best?

The rich mix of different media and features

What do you dislike?

Some of the features take a little finding. There is some functional overlap with standard email.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Jostle provides a compelling mix of internal communications functions that would suit any company with multiple offices or a substantial number of employees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Jostle provides a relatively easy to use medium for internal communications in firms with multiple offices or departments. Users can share photos, questions, stories etc and the personal profiles help put 'a face to the name'.

"Nice Idea"

What do you like best?

I like that it gives team members a place to share ideas, give shout-outs and post notices.

What do you dislike?

It seems kind of obsolete as a web-based application. It mimics that of a social media platform, but I'm not sure it serves a purpose beyond what we already use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for a place for faculty and staff to share ideas and connect with each other. Jostle definitely serves that purpose.

"Jostle - Social media to boost employee communication and morale, if your company updates it."

What do you like best?

The ability to interact with co-workers and management in a social-media like setting helps to boost overall employee morale and each cmployees feeling of belonging within the company. I also found Jostle to help improve the overall company culture by giving it a more laid back and friendly feeling to the company, as well as making company management more accessible and human feeling. I felt connected to my employer while using Jostle and as such, I took more pride in my work so I ensured my work was always my best quality work.

What do you dislike?

The large drawback to Jostle is the apparent lack of automated systems to keep the community active and engaged. When my company first introduced their Jostle network, it was extremely active and a constant source of engaging work material and inspiration. Management did not keep it active though, so over time (a rather short period of time too) the store updates, pictures of varying smiling teams, corporate announcements, friendly congratulations and birthday notices, and all other content died out and it became a social media ghost town. This could be solved through automating processes to ensure content is always being added so the employees remain engaged, connected, and socializing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My company introduced their Jostle network to many receptive users, but they failed to keep it active through regular updates. Once the employees realized that the company wasn't actively posting updates, usage of the network dwindled down quickly until it became nothing but a ghost town - an employee communication solution that had so much potential but was wholly underutilized, and the potential under-realized, by company management. Don't underestimate how powerful this could be. The power of a social network in your hands and used to benefit the company as a whole through employee retention, employee morale, promoting brand and company loyalty, the systematic boost to employee production quality due to these various factors, the free sharing of ideas to promote innovation and creativity, the boost to peer communication, etc. It's almost limitless how great Jostle COULD BE for your company - if it's ever used right.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Systems such as jostle that introduce peer networks for employees promote a positive company culture, employee morale, peer bonding, and company loyalty. A happy and loyal employee is much more likely to produce high quality and efficient work for the company.

"Efficient Information Sharing Software"

What do you like best?

The layout is very clean and user-friendly. Easily able to find other users and to post messages.

What do you dislike?

It has a bit of a delay on posting and I don't like that the email notifications don't include the full message, it makes you go to the site.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a part of an organization which has a lot of separate associations under their umbrella, this platform allows us all to connect.

"Great Intranet "

What do you like best?

Jostle is a fantastic intranet. Communication and employee engagement soared once it was implemented. It was so easy to post news stories and the online directory search is amazing! I have since left my company that was using Jostle, but I miss it's easy to use interface! If you need a company intranet, choose Jostle. You won't be disappointed!

What do you dislike?

It's really a fantastic product. The only thing that is negative is that is a shared platform, which means you can't customize features. However you can make product development requests, and many times they are implemented.

Recommendations to others considering the product

How much would you be willing to spend to have your employees be more informed and engaged? The cost per user is worth the investment. This interface is easy to use and doesn't take long to launch to the organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The previous intranet the company was on was stale and outdated. It was a graveyard of documents. Once Jostle was implemented, employees were more engaged and aware of what was going on in the company. The graveyard of documents was replaced with only fresh and current documents. The ability to search and quickly find information is Jostle's biggest strength!

"Social Media + Corporate Connections"

What do you like best?

The layout is very easy to use. It feels familiar and the learning curve is minimal. I go to Jostle for all of my company's links and to read about events across all our offices.

What do you dislike?

I wish that there was a way to chat within Jostle. The shout-out function is fun, but it would be nice if there was a better way to communicate within Jostle.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have several offices across the US and in China. This helps connect all of us. We're able to stay informed about what is happening at each location.
