We have been using Telligent Community in an educational setting for the past eight years, During that time, we've seen the product evolve and focus on a user-friendly, cohesive feature set that is well integrated, flexible, and chock full of options for fine-tuning the experience.

Star Rating Great platform with flexibility for any type of community

Telligent provide a great community platform that has been growing and evolving over the last decade.
The out the box experience provides you with a range of applications (including blogs, forums, media galleries, wikis, and ideas) that you can combine for different groups within your community. This combined with the other standard features gives the flexibility to make the community fit your users.
If you reach the limits of what can be configured out the box, the platform has a lot of developer extensibility points that can be used to alter or expand functionality or customise the design.

  • Wide range of out the box features
  • Array of extensibility points for developers to customise the community
  • Most communities will want some amount of developer time to customise look and feel or features
  • Some of the customisation options aren't familiar to most developers, so can take a little getting used to

Star Rating Nothing Better Out There than Telligent

I have been a developer on Telligent for 9 years. I started working on the platform at Microsoft Dynamics where I was the lead developer for 8 years. I have since moved on and am working for another company on the Telligent platform.

This platform is a developer's dream. In my 9 years there has not been a single request the platform couldn't handle via their widget UX framework, theming or back-end plugin development.

It has a robust rules engine, realtime notifications, job scheduler, and too many other features to list. There is also a team of developers that is constantly improving the platform and coming out with new releases.

The online support community is also fantastic as Telligent makes it a priority to answer all the questions posted in their forums.

  • Great Support
  • Robust APIs (Widget, REST, Plugin, etc)
  • Proprietary

Star Rating A strong start.

We recently moved over from a legacy system and had become accustomed to poor service standards and costs at every turn.



  • Telligent / Verint, the individuals and teams we've worked with from the founder Rob to the day to day support staff have all been helpful, knowledgeable and great to work with.
  • The system itself we are still learning and perhaps training is an area which could improve so their clients can fulfill the potential of this great platform.

Star Rating A solid product

We've used Telligent for over one year now. Recommend getting a Developer on board to take advantage of all Telligent has to offer.

  • Aggregate activity reporting is fantastic
  • Rules engine is robust - we haven't taken full of advantage of it but plan to do so
  • Easy to use site
  • Limited to no individual member reports
  • Logic to add features to groups is a little funky - once you do it a few times it makes sense

Star Rating Great high-volume platform

Stable platform particularly good for large communities with a lot of traffic, content and groups. Good for customer communities, members orgs and internal communities (integrates with SharePoint). Good value.

  • Good pricing model - not expensive.
  • Reliable - doesn't fall over.
  • Easy to manage.
  • Not the most straightforward to configure.
  • All the essential features but if you want something extra you'll have to have it built.
