Seems like a great solution for web-based apps and sites when you want to communicate with your users in a fairly lightweight way. Users can "escape" from your guided tours relatively easily. Not sure how it would work for a combined web and mobile experience. Also, if you have a responsive layout, the layout of the guide sometimes breaks - you have to be careful

Pendo.io

[Pendo.io] is great to get insights on where and how users use your site. [Pendo.io] is great because it's easy to use and is always tracking everything, even if you haven't tagged something specifically. If you are trying to do step by step guides for training on how to use a site, I have used more robust tools for that. It also doesn't record user sessions like others, if you're wanting to actually watch a recording of someone using your site.

Pros

Chameleon

  • Super easy installation/setup particularly if you use Segment.
  • Improved and relatively easy to learn UI.
  • Great minimal/elegant design of the elements that get displayed to your users.

Pendo.io

  • Pendo.io is very user-friendly, designed for users (like me) without a technology background, to easily set up and navigate the tool.
  • In-app guides and walk thru's are very easy to set up and customize.
  • Customized Dashboards are excellent for our different teams, they can focus on exactly what they need, and adjust their dashboard widgets easily as needed.
  • NPS tool basically runs itself.
  • Pendo.io staff is always helpful and available to answer questions. They are always willing listeners when we have suggestions or a unique problem to solve.
  • Pendo.io Slack channel is very helpful! lots of sharing of best practices between all kinds of Pendo.io users.

Cons

Chameleon

  • There are not quite as many interactive elements as I'd like to see, but enough to get the job done.
  • The general editing UI is good, but some of the elements could be easier to discover. You sort of have to trial-and-error your way to success.
  • Documentation is fairly light. If you really want to dig in, you'll find it lacking. Luckily support was awesome and fast.

Pendo.io

  • As they are continuing to grow, and working to get users to the new Visual Design Studio, I think the biggest overhaul is to Guides specific to the What's New portion, and making this available sooner than later in the new Visual Design Studio will make transitioning easy, and make it stickier in orgs.
  • Improved workflow in the designers, whether Classic Designer or Visual Design Studio, I don't always want to edit the default components of the item I am creating, but I have to click Apply to escape it.
  • A little more clarity around use cases - when I took on my role currently, I was tasked with taking over Pendo.io management. Having used it in my previous role was helpful, but I still had plenty of questions from a backend administration and implementation stance, but I was more directed to hobble along. I've made great strides, and the Pendo.io Slack channels and user community are quite helpful.

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

They've been great anytime that we have needed help with something. They also have some really great help articles. We're able to figure most things out through their articles, but when we've had to call in they've been very helpful and we haven't had any problems. I'd highly recommend working with them.

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.

Use Segment to install and cut developers out of the work cycle!

We had some colleagues try to implement WalkMe with their Single page app and it was a disaster getting it to work (it eventually did, mostly). Because we already use Segment, we thought we'd give Chameleon a try and it was very easy. I built my first tour in an hour or two.

Pendo.io

Pendo.io far and away blows Totango out of the water. While Totango offers in depth usage tracking, it is far behind the experience Pendo provides. Pendo.io is more flexible in what it can track (customizable), offers a far better end user UI/experience, and provides additional features that Totango does not offer (Guides, NPS tracking, etc.). Even Pendo's customer service is better than Totango's. The only place where Totango might have an edge on Pendo.io is in their reporting structure/functionality, which I outlined earlier.

Return on Investment

Chameleon

  • Saved us time/money building extensive documentation.
  • Quicker to implement a few other solutions. We have access to an enterprise product for FREE, but we chose not to use it because implementation was too cumbersome.
Michael Ball-Marian | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pendo.io

  • 95% reduction in required dev resources, freeing them up for more product development
  • Roughly a 400% increase in effective customer messaging from 2017 (31 guides) to 2018 (currently, 141 guides), spurring all kinds of engagement from more feature usage & discovery to education & in-app training.
  • 100% of all new features and feature updates are now substantiated by quantitative and qualitative data, in-part sourced from Pendo.
