Tribe is a well-known influencer marketing marketplace which helps some of the largest brands with campaigns.

Top Features:

The UX of the platform makes it really easy for social media and content marketers to setup end-to-end campaigns pretty quickly.

All of this is tracked so you can see which content you approve, needed updates, etc. Of course, everything is tracked for measurement, so you can see where you get ROI.
Two main things about Tribe which I really like is the metrics to measure how campaigns perform, all within the one campaign. On top of that, it's really great for quality influencers.

Influencity

About: 
Influencity has some awesome features around influencer campaign management and tracking analytics that you should check out.

Top Features:

A core component of the campaign management suite that I really like is the Kanban view. Similar functionality in terms of cards within Trello. Not to mention, there's a solid database of over 70 million influencers worldwide.
Another feature I really like is the ability to forecast potential results. Of course, no forecasting when doing influencer marketing is a guarantee, but based on existing metrics around engagement, follower count and budget per influencer, you can get a rough understanding of what you may expect. Really helps with prioritisation and setting expectations.
When campaigns happen, you can see results in real-time. You can view detailed metrics by influencer, post, content and overall campaign.
