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!

UserZoom is well suited for usability testing, I found specifically around test websites and marketing materials. I was able to invite others to participate and watch as well as screen share so that it was an interactive session. Other tools I have used have been a little better with the video output and transcripts of each session so that we could capture notes quickly, but overall it was a good tool to use to test.

Pros
Crownpeak
  • 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)

  • Quantitative testing can be done on the cheap compared to other quant tools or vendors... once you buy the license, you only pay for additional recruiting and you are managing the project, so there isn't the high cost of having other vendors doing the project management or running a survey etc.
  • Farily robust means of tracking and recording data. I also relied heavily on the excel spreadsheet of all the raw data, which you can have UZ customize for you to get what you need.
  • Great support system from the UserZoom team - they have researchers who can help with coding and also provide research support for a very good price.
  • Also they have tree testing, card sorting, survey capabilities (in addition to usability testing)... and mobile testing. and they seem to be continously be developing the tool to support additional methods.

Cons
Crownpeak
  • 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.

UserZoom
  • Compared with some other tools, because their video conferencing platform is web-based (vs. using Zoom, which has a desktop app), I find the connection buffers a lot and it's kind of annoying
  • Their screening tool on the UserZoom side (not Go) is clunky. Just let me select May, Must, or Should not for criteria rather than the weird interface design they have now.
  • Logic panel is a little confusing, sometimes I do a double-take, sometimes it's wonky and resets itself. It's just not as easy to use as it could be.
  • They haven't integrated UserZoom and UserZoom Go (formerly Validately)
  • It's expensive!
  • We signed up for a high sample size license with unlimited tests, but we're finding their panel doesn't fill as fast as their biggest competitor, UserTesting. We've struggled to fill n=100 sample tests with fairly general criteria.
  • A lot of their licenses only allow limited concurrent studies, whereas UserTesting had unlimited tests that you could launch at a time. It's slowed us down.

We've seen competitors, they're not doing as well of a job as dqm is. It's a wonderful tool and there a huge opportunities for crownpeak

I'm actually trying to get a license for my current job at my current company (recently moved to a new company). I gave it this rating because I am about to go to our executive to ask that we purchase it! I know that there will be value because we are forecasting a high volume of research next year

Usability
Crownpeak
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, it was fairly easy to use. Especially if you are familiar with this type of product. We were able to use it for testing pretty much right after we got it (same day) and didn't have many issues figuring out how to invite, test, and share which was great.

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.

From my experience, the UserZoom team has really done a great job answering the limited questions we have given them thus far. I think the platform is popular enough that many of my questions have been answered by their help pages - or other online content with helpful tips and tricks. I think the community has done a nice job of providing end-user tutorials for those who are new to the platform.

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.

On several occasions, the participants claimed that TryMyUI was extremely laggy towards the end of the sessions, and got frustrated. We have trialed UserTesting and decided to make the switch. Our team especially like the variety of templates on the platform targetting various needs such as preference test, web/app usability, short tests, etc.

Return on Investment
Crownpeak
  • When driving Customer Care, it was great to be able to add the Autofix tool to the web estate - a quick-win that really drives the accessibility agenda.
  • 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.

  • A must-have tool for any CPG UX website/path-to-purchase testing!
  • App testing: easy enough to work with that there's no excuse for not testing early and often.
  • Not inexpensive, but every great product must have as equally a great user experience designed in!
