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.

Delighted is best suited for organizations starting off with their Customer Experience journey. Off the bat, you want to start with a platform that's affordable and easy to set up. Once you've gotten the hang of running a Customer Experience program, you can move up to a more advanced platform like Qualtrics. Luckily, Qualtrics acquired Delighted a couple of years back so transitioning should be frictionless.

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.

  • Having the ability to add in additional questions (more of a survey) would be helpful.
  • I wish there was a way to ask questions that would categorize the areas in which we need to improve. ie. "this is related to_____" and then have a drop down with different departments.

We run surveys every single day and have the responses fed directly into our Slack instance. Everyone in the organization (not just CX) can view and resolve any issues customers bring up without needing for them to reach out to our Customer Support team. Truly, Delighted has made the organization more customer centric by delivering the feedback right where everyone is (no PowerPoint presentations required).

I have nothing but good things to say about Delighted's Concierge team. They have been quick to respond and have been able to make a lot of our customization requests a reality. They're also very open to product requests and suggestions and have been quick in churning out new features ever so often.

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.

I chose Delighted because it offered an affordable price point to get started, yet with plenty of room to grow. We started with 2,500 contacts per month, which is more generous than competitors offer at a similar price. I also saw that Delighted could integrate with Salesforce and Intercom (plus API capabilities), so I knew we wouldn't outgrow Delighted quickly. Since Delighted has been acquired by Qualtrics, I expect that its capabilities will only increase.

Return on Investment
Appcues

  • Our organization is focused on providing outstanding customer service, and we use Delighted to survey our customers and find out how they feel we are doing. We have been able to identify problems and hiccups in our service from customer responses with Delighted, and have been able to correct and improve on those.
  • As I mentioned earlier, Delighted is on the expensive side, and we have explored cheaper options. But the ease of use for our customers, and the easy to digest reporting has kept us with Delighted.
