If you have a fully customized cms and have people working on the site with html and css knowledge this is the best tool ever, all specifics can be checked. Using ab tests and optimization services we identify best practices of the website and everywhere the best practices aren't implemented we find using the custom checkpoints. Aspects that cannot be automated via a quick IT solution is turned into a checkpoint and that's great!

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

Crownpeak DQM

  • Ensures quality and consistency of content implementation across distributed teams and markets.
  • Quick and easy content updates across global digital ecosystems.
  • Custom checkpoints to identify, highlight and manage business updates across multiple websites (e.g. product detail, terminology, customer messaging, brand updates)
Andy Wood | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Crownpeak DQM

  • It would be helpful if the Issues page under Website showed the WCAG level for each issue (A, AA, AAA). You currently have to look up the guideline to find the level.
  • There is no indicator that a page is currently being scanned. During a website scan, some of the reports are blank or missing information. Having a notification on the main page showing which websites are being scanned would be helpful.
  • Some ADA compliance items are left off, such as keyboard navigation, tabbing, etc.
  • It doesn't view the websites on mobile devices or if using a screen reader. Some pages or formatting changes depending on resolution. The DQM, from what I have seen, doesn't account for that.

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.

Usability

I had a small learning curve in order to become fluent with the platform as it doesn't work like the other automated accessibility tools that I've used. However, once I was up to speed, I like it better than any of the other tools and find the data more useful, digestible, and relevant.

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

Online support [is] always quick to reply and usually [has] a fix ready and implemented within hours. Regular catch-ups with Account Managers [have] ensured that issues are addressed even more quickly, with the ability to see the results within days following a re-crawl of the sites. Suggestions for improvement are always taken on board.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Crownpeak DQM

Crownpeak Digital Quality Management (DQM) has all the tools in one dashboard for all possible needs of a website to resolve SEO and other issues. Whereas WordPress is more of searching for the right plugin to assist in finding all the issues you might have a need to address.

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

Crownpeak DQM

  • Building reports off the back of DQM gives senior stakeholders an understanding of the importance of usability and accessibility.
  • The gamification of league tables highlights to stakeholders the areas that need focus and budget in order to improve.
