Amplitude Analytics

If you looking to go deep into the user journey, then this is the best suit as you can create a segment and this is the easiest tool for applying the required filters and segments on various steps of the funnel to see the user flow. In one complete flow, it can easily provide you with all events that were conducted by a user during his session.

Pendo.io

Pendo.io is well suited for companies that want detailed usage information. Page and feature tagging is simple, yet offers incredible information on behaviors (funnels, paths, etc). The Product team finds this detail invaluable in supporting data-driven decisions for design and development.Pendo.io is well suited for companies that need usage information to guide implementation and customer communication. Customized dashboards allow different teams to view at-a-glance information that is important to their work. The in-app guides make it simple and easy for users to access resources without having to navigate away from their work.Pendo.io may not be well suited for companies that need to track text/content entered into text boxes within their application, although we have not found that to be a problem.

Pros

Amplitude Analytics

  • Charts - I love the charting elements from Amplitude because they are simple and intuitive.
  • Ease of use - It has the ability to run complex SQL queries but more importantly the average marketer can use it and get the information they need without needing to have any technical work done.
  • Cohorts - These make segmenting data easy and this is key in the analysis.

Pendo.io

  • High-quality analytics.
  • Pointed delivery that meets the user's needs of information, without destroying the Customer Experience.
  • Dedication to customer success. Anytime I have gone to the Pendo.io team for clarity beyond what shows in their app and docs, they are quick and informative, while updating what they have publicly available.
  • Usability-driven - Pendo.io realizes not everyone uses the same platforms, and makes the best possible availability of integrations and ability to custom-code an integration through their robust API.

Cons

Amplitude Analytics

  • Training my team on Amplitude is a little complicated, so I would say it isn't the most intuitive software. Certain actions require hovering over buttons in order for the options to appear which can cause confusion when initially learning how to navigate Amplitude.

Pendo.io

  • I would love it if Pendo.io would add a dedicated space where you can work on segments. Having to access them through drop-downs in random places throughout the app isn't the best.
  • I'd love for them to expand their integrations with other programs that support product managers.

We have had an excellent experience with Pendo. When we've had questions or concerns, Pendo is very quick to respond and communicate with us. We have experienced top-notch customer support and customer engagement. We have actually modeled some of our implementation and product processes after Pendo's examples.

Overall, Pendo provides a smooth interface, especially with the most recent update, and I couldn't imagine using or learning any other platform so product focused. From the moment I log into Pendo, I know where I'm going and what I'm looking for and I'm able to find that, through the interface, in as little time as possible. This helps keep me focused on doing other tasks at work so I'm not overburdened with hunting things down in the system

It provides a super useful analytics platform. You don't even have to have coding skills to use it and almost no training is required. Features and analysis are very intuitive. Speed could be faster. I didn't experience any downtime while using it. It smoothly integrates into the normal workflow of a developer and provides a hassle-free platform to managers.

My initial review of Pendo was glowing - as was my experience at the time. Since then Support, which was once a huge Pendo plus, has become a disaster. They've moved away from dedicated CSMs - at least for a segment of accounts - and to a centralized support model.. however, it can take a week for me to get an initial response to a ticket. I've had to escalate darn near every one in recent months, and most never get satisfactorily resolved. Feels like major scaling issues going on at Pendo, and a whole lot of untrained people. And yes, this will make me reconsider renewing at the end of the year.

The training schedule was well thought out and tailored to meet our needs. Chantelle stayed with us through the whole implementation and made sure that we were good to go.

Alternatives Considered

Amplitude Analytics

A lot of data can be tracked via manual tracking or linking to an excel sheet, but with such a huge amount of data, it is far easier to have all of it laid out in an easy to read format. The charts and graphs are easy to use and are really pretty user-friendly. The hardest part is in simply finding the event that you want to use.

Pendo.io

Pendo is much simpler than the competition:
  1. WalkMe seems to be very robust for guided walkthroughs, but the UI for both authors and visitors is clunky by comparison to Pendo.
  2. Google Analytics tracks anything and everything... but only if someone else has set it up properly. It's very difficult for someone without direct access to the code to start tracking anything, or to make sense of it once they do. Pendo is lightyears ahead in this regard.
Also Pendo has the very cool capability of allowing you to look backwards in time, and see analytics for the past--even if you hadn't yet set up the specific tags you want to track for that period in the past. (I believe you DO have to have Pendo already installed for that period, but you don't have to have specified everything in advance; you can do that later.)
