How is SocialVolt different than [insert name here]?
SocialVolt is an enterprise-grade social publishing platform designed from the ground-up to scale and integrate within large organizations. And while we have customers from nearly every industry imaginable, SocialVolt was designed for businesses who want to use social media but need to adhere to company policy or federal guidelines. The SocialVolt platform is different because it offers comprehensive features for moderation (supervision), audit (compliance) and archive (record keeping).
We're also different because we listen to our customers and care about their needs. We're not here trying to get to our next million signups: we're here to help you engage in social media while having an outstanding user experience all while making sure you're not violating company policies or federal guidelines.

SocialVolt has the domain experience necessary to advice your team on industry specific policies and procedures to help you build a solid social media program.
I'm in a regulated industry and require archive service. Do you offer social archival?
Yes. Archive and retention is one of the critical elements of any social media strategy for those in financial services, insurance and healthcare. Archive is available as an add-on feature for all accounts. See our editions page for details.

SocialVolt offers a comprehensive set of supervision features designed to help managers enable employees to engage in social while ensuring adherence to company policy or regulatory guidelines. Authorized users can review content before it ever reaches the public social networks.

SocialVolt was built from day one to handle thousands of users.

SocialVolt can organize your social media into easily manageable groups where users can be assigned granular permissions making it a breeze to roll out social across your organization.
