Tribe, a powerful alternative to Forumbee

Build a fully customized and modern online community based on social media best practices. Save resources to invest in the community.


What’s the difference between
Tribe Platform and Forumbee?

Forumbee is a relatively newer community software when compared with the traditional forum software. Although it offers different modules such as Q&A, ideation, and knowledge-base, the community solution doesn’t embody the modern social media best practices. Also, the solution doesn’t offer any way to embed community touchpoints in the customer journey.

On the contrary, Tribe is based on the philosophy of an integrated and fully customizable community platform that reflects the content consumption, networking, and digital interaction patterns of modern social media users.

With Tribe, the online community can be integrated into the customer journey via embeddable widgets and numerous integrations with popular third-party tools. Also, the complete community can be fully configured with DIY options (including advanced SSO and design changes) thereby minimizing the time to market.

Read on to explore why Tribe can be a powerful Forumbee alternative.
