Appcues
It is well suited for SaaS products or services that have a highly complex user interface. Through Appcues, you can ensure that people discover all the existing and new features and make them understand the value of your product as soon as possible to address the evergreen issue of churn. But if your user interface is really messed up, you should change the product itself instead of using a tool like Appcues to explain everything on the screen.

Glia
It is well suited for repeatable user journeys that require a high touch and service environment. Glia excels at providing tools that enable and create engagement, in a diverse form of options and methods. It is fully customizable and integration is better than simple. Glia is probably less suited for an organization that is looking for a self-service engagement tool, not manned by users.

Cons
Appcues
  • We were extremely surprised that there are not any Appcues used in Appcues. The app is pretty easy to use, once you figure out how to use it. There were not any type of tutorials when we logged in that quickly walked through how to setup a flow.
  • Appcues has lots of support articles, however they are almost so numerous that it was hard to find simple onboarding documentation that we found useful.
  • The different tooltips and product actions are great, but being able to customize the different cues a little bit more by changing sizes and aspect ratios could be an improvement.

  • Lack of SMS integration.
  • The development required for integration into custom CRMs.
  • Roadmap features AI-powered initiatives, but it is a product that integrates with AI and not a new or advanced AI tool.

Glia
This is Glia's largest strength. The integration and initial configuration were done exclusively by Glia, freeing up our limited technology resources. Especially at the beginning of our relationship, the customer success team on a scheduled basis assisted in the review of our data and KPIs while offering strategies to improve services and achieve higher ROI. None of these services were offered for a premium and this demonstrates the commitment Glia has to launch successful partnerships.

Alternatives Considered
Appcues
It has a much, much better user interface, better customer care, and of course better pricing. This along with the fact that they were very accommodating for our use case ensured we went ahead with Appcues.

Glia
The customer success team was superior, as was the possibility of pro-active engagements across all mediums and platforms. Pricing models in this space are comparable, however, the enhanced auxiliary features, as well as a stronger product road map for development, tipped the scales towards Glia. The product road map is always made available to customers, and most initiatives are deployed on time.
