Personalized portals for everyone

What do you like best?

Netvibes allows me to gather all my reading sources in one place for easy access. In addition to the RSS modules, it has a multitude of apps, from accessing email to checking the weather, including to-do lists, twitter access, bookmarks and even a HTML editor. The user has a lot of freedom to organize and configure how these modules will appear in her page and it is also possible to create additional tabs. Finally, Netvibes allows users to create "potions" that automate tasks, similar to the functions of IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/).

What do you dislike?

The mobile app still can be a bit confusing to use. This is understandable, since typically netvibes users will have a lot of content, which is hard to fit in small screens. Still, it is clear that the company should revamp its mobile app in order to give mobile users a more complete experience .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Despite the current focus in social media monitoring, Netvibes can be much more flexible, for example, acting like a research ambient with the right reading sources and access to writing tools It excels as a way to have a broad idea of what is being said in different channels.

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

It allows me to focus on my research, since I don't need to leave the page for reading different sites. The fact that netvibes includes access to twitter and Gmail helps even more to stay focused on my work without outer distractions. Any company can customize a start page for their employees using netvibes, making easier to present important information.

Netvibes is excellent to build your personal or team "Information ecosystems"

What do you like best?

Netvibes is an excellent tool to aggregate information from different sources. It's very handy to push RSS feeds to, but its built in connectors also allow easy integration to monitor hundreds of other sources, such as Twitter or Facebook or Google Analytics.

What do you dislike?

Netvibes didn't really make the transition into the mobile space. The mobile website is still a bit lackluster and buggy, there are no mobile apps.

This should receive more focus, i.e. there should be push notifications on my mobile around very urgent topics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't have a strong mobile use case, I would definitely check out Netvibes as an option to keep a team up to date on content.

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

We're mainly solving the challenge to stay up to date on certain topics. Let's say we roll out a new eMail CRM system for a client. I want to make sure that the client receives all new information regarding that system, also relevant discussions. We then build a netvibes dashboard that assembles the blog of the system, Twitter feed, Facebook page updates, etc, but also customer voices, discussions, Google alert data, etc.

Simple and useful dashboard

What do you like best?

I love that I can set up a dashboard and see dozens of headlines from dozens of websites all at once. It is so much easier than switching back and forth between browser tabs.

What do you dislike?

Haven't come across any dislikes from the site.

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

For culling and curating news and other information, Netvibes is my favorite solution. I can easily see all of the information from the sources I refer to, and set up a dashboard for each topic.

RSS feed reader / my daily digital newspaper

What do you like best?

Great, customizable layout, easily add, move, subtract RSS feeds from blogs, news sites, etc. Tabular page layout makes multiple topics easy to organize.

UI/UX is a little dated, albeit still very clean and useful.
