Chameleon Intelligent Tech Inc.
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

UserTesting
It's the best for A/B tests or tests where you need a broad audience. If you don't need a real niche audience (that you should recruit then rather yourself), then you can rely on UserTesting. It's good because it's so quick, almost instant, it takes about 10 minutes on average before I can start reviewing and documenting sessions.

Pros
Chameleon Intelligent Tech Inc.
  • 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.

UserTesting
  • Taking notes with video clips. I can take notes while I am watching a session and I can create clips of UX issues or bugs occurring. This really helps when I share them with other teams.
  • Exporting all your notes. I analyze all usability tests by exporting my notes from UserTesting. I wish I could bulk export multiple tests though.
  • Setting up demographics. This helps me reach out to users who are similar to our audience.
  • Setting up screeners. Some studies require specific audiences (using a specific tool etc.), by setting screeners I can make sure I reached the correct audience.

Cons
Chameleon Intelligent Tech Inc.
  • 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.

UserTesting
  • The organization of the work spaces/dashboards could use some work.
  • I don't feel as supported as I used to from a customer success perspective. I used to have dedicated, go-to professionals to reach out to about my account who knew my project context, account history, etc. Recently we've been pushed into general support pools, and it doesn't feel like my account gets any personalized attention anymore.
  • I would like to see a more refined experience for collaborators - the test plans I share with them are plain text/hard to read.
  • Would be nice to be able to conduct focus groups using this tool.

I'm very happy with my experience of the product and the level of service and learning resources they provide. If the service becomes more expensive than it currently is then we might not be able to justify additional cost - but this is theoretical. I would recommend UserTesting and would ideally renew our contract.

UserTesting
User Testing is very easy to use. You first select the profile of your participants. This is as simple as checking on checkboxes and creating some questions to target the right market and user. You may also just send the tests to your own customers with a simple link. After selecting your audience, you just need to drag and drop the tasks and set them up. You're always guided throughout the process and if you're missing something, the user testing platform will let you know. Really simple stuff.

UserTesting
Taking a long time
When we had issues or questions, it often took a long time to receive a response from the support team. This delayed our testing and caused frustration for our team.
Not helpful in our specific questions
When we did receive a response, it often did not fully address our specific questions or issues. This made it difficult to resolve problems or move forward with our testing.

UserTesting
From a technical perspective, the implementation was extremely smooth. Most of the change management / implementation hurdles were clearing use of the tool through our various security, legal, and information privacy teams. Once these concerns were addressed (UserTesting.com was very helpful in providing all the needed documentation), the implementation process was very simple and we were able to get going right away.

Alternatives Considered
Chameleon Intelligent Tech Inc.
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.

UserTesting
UserTesting allows for a quicker recruiting process for our studies. Additionally, UserTesting has more unmoderated research features and capabilities. I think that their payment model is also easier than UserInterviews. We typically user UserTesting for reaching our hard to reach segments and recruiting prospective users not already within our product user population.

UserTesting
The package we have limits the number of people who can set up tests. This prevents us from scaling the use of the platform.

Return on Investment
Chameleon Intelligent Tech Inc.
  • 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.

UserTesting
  • Cost savings of over $100K as we dont involve our research vendors as much as we used to do in the past
  • Better tested experience get out in the market quickly even when we don't have enough time available with our researchers; our designers who are well-trained on usertesting.com can test out quickly
