Filed in uncategorized 0 comments

If every business needs to become a social business, every business needs the “software” to enable competency. A social business support system is a more effective use of social business intelligence across the organization. If a company wants to have a comprehensive understanding of Social Media in China and the rest of the Asia Pacific region, the best way is cooperating with a local third-party social media listening provider.

Recently, Forrester Research published <The Forrester WaveTM: Asia Pacific Enterprise Social Listening Platforms, Q1 2016> report. Based on Forrester’s 30-criteria evaluation of enterprise social listening platform providers in the Asian Pacific, this report details Forrester’s findings of how well each vendor fulfills the 30-criteria and where these vendors stand in relation to each other, thus helping marketing professionals select the right partner for enterprise social listening needs.
