Sprinklr acquires the Dachis Group to build out its social management platform

With so many social media management platforms it’s difficult to keep track. There’s Hootsuite, Sprout Social, Radian6, to name a few. In general they offer the same core product — an easy way to channel, filter, and diffuse social content for brands. But, of course, the war rages on about which is best.
