Create a community that's right for you
Vanilla's plugin system makes it easy to configure your community to suit your unique needs.
Increase customer engagement and reduce support costs.
A customer community is the cornerstone of your social strategy. Not only does customer-to-customer support reduce costs, it facilitates the exchange of best practices an gives you deep insights into customer needs. Vanilla lets you create a community that your customers will actually love to use.
Give your audience a voice.
Blog comments and Facebook pages result in transient participation instead of the loyal community following that you're looking for. Give your audience a place where they can interact with each other and with you in a meaningful way.
Create an engaging private community.
A community is a great way to encourage social collaboration among employees, partners or members. Vanilla lets you create a completely private community and set very granular permissions to control what members in different roles can do and what they can see.
Focus on community building, not IT problems.
Has your current platform reached the end of its life? Vanilla has migrated hundreds of forums to our cloud platform. Our services team will ensure that your migration goes smoothly and that key functionality & SEO rank is preserved.
