Staffbase vs. Cerkl Broadcast

Improving your internal communications is a big ask. Make sure you have all the information to find the perfect fit for your organization.

Email

Our intuitive drag-and-drop builder makes it easy to create and schedule time-sensitive communications to the right list. Email Blasts are pre-tested on over 60 email clients and will look beautiful on each device.

Staffbase

Does not include email.

SharePoint

No need to replace your existing intranet. Instantly add personalization, notifications and A.I. learning with our native SharePoint web part (HTML standard plug-in for other Intranets). No API or tech involvement necessary to add Broadcast Intranet Notifications & Personalization.

Staffbase

SharePoint webpart available for non-personalized newsfeed. Offer proprietary Intranet solution (extra cost) which requires replacing your existing intranet.

Mobile

A native employee mobile app available for both iOS and Android. Includes your branding, personalized newsfeed, in-app notifications, universal content search, customizable links, A.I. learning plus many more mobile features. Priced separately so you don’t pay for something you don’t need.

Staffbase

Native mobile app available for both iOS and Android. Newsfeed tailored to the employee. Not optional – required with subscription.

Microsoft Teams

Deliver personalized news directly into Microsoft Teams for each employee by adding the Broadcast Teams app (included at no additional charge).

Staffbase

Integration requires custom software development for an additional charge.

Cross-Channel

Broadcast’s intelligent content delivery (patent pending) allows communicators to publish content once and have it automatically delivered to Intranet, mobile and even email. Additionally, your channels are connected meaning your employees won’t see content they’ve already consumed on a different channel.

Staffbase

Publish once to mobile and Intranet only. Channels do not include built-in A.I. learning or intelligence between channels. Employees will receive duplicate content.

Newsletters

Broadcast Newsletters automatically curate content into a personalized digest for each employee. Using A.I., employees receive the required content they have yet to see plus what they’re interested in.

Staffbase

Email is not supported.

Audience Management

Broadcast allows you to build dynamic segments (no IT required) based on any attribute (department, location, hire date, etc.) in your HRIS (Workday, PeopleSoft, SAP, ADP, etc.). Also supports integration with Active Directory and file uploads.

Staffbase

Supports existing distribution lists via custom integration with Microsoft Active Directory. 

Content Management

We all hate jumping back and forth between platforms to fix a title or update a resource. With Broadcast Content Manager, you can create, distribute, search, and edit your content in one location. Focus on maximizing your team’s content lifecycle and value, not just checking a box.

Staffbase

Yes – publish content to your mobile app. Email is not a supported channel. Intranet is an additional cost.

Analytics

Broadcast Insights includes the ability to create unlimited, customizable dashboards based on the KPIs that matter to you. All dashboards can be shared with your team and leadership. No additional charge for access to Insights.

Staffbase

Pre-defined reports for mobile content consumption. Email is not supported. Intranet is an additional cost.
