Tribe, a powerful alternative to Khoros Communities (Lithium community software)

Choose a modern and fully customizable community platform. Save your budget and resources to better serve your community.


What’s the difference between
Tribe and Khoros Communities?

Lithium is one of the first entrants in the enterprise community software space and they merged with Spredfast to create Khoros Communities. However, that doesn’t mean Khoros is the right community solution for every business. Read on to explore why Tribe is a leading alternative to Khoros Communities.

Community platform

Tribe’s community hub is highly adaptable and allows you to mold the community by selecting and showcasing various elements of your community.

Social touchpoints

Tribe allows you to select various components of the community and embed them in different phases of the customer lifecycle via widgets to deliver contextual knowledge.


Tribe’s pricing starts from $599/month with an annual subscription which is at par with the offerings of Khoros Communities (Lithium) for customizations. Note that Lithium’s entry-level pricing is about 25 times higher.

Third-party integration

Tribe offers direct integration with 20+ apps ranging from CRM and helpdesk to payments and messaging apps. Moreover, Zapier integration allows you to connect with thousands of leading third-party tools.

Content organization

Organize the user-generated content in a way that allows users to discover the right material at the right time (e.g., asking questions and searching). Tribe automatically detects the most relevant member to answer questions and gives users the option to send requests.

Superior moderation

It is crucial to moderate discussions, set the course of the community and establish guidelines for the members while scaling user growth. Tribe helps you do just that with sophisticated moderation tools.

Extensive API

The comprehensive API helps community owners to capture every single activity in the community and build any to customization or integration to add the community in the existing company processes.

Rapid launch capability

Tribe’s modular and easy-to-configure design helps customers launch communities within 2-6 weeks from the date of contract execution. This includes customization and seamless integration as per branding guidelines.
