Likelihood to Recommend

Custify

Two big use cases where it's very well suited: onboarding of our clients and churn prevention. It just saves me so much time and helps me recommend more strategic suggestions. At the end of the day I can see my productivity being a lot higher than before having Custify.

Guru

Guru is an exceptional tool for any Sales and Customer Success organization. How many times have you gone to a Google Doc, or Confluence page and wondered is this content the most up-to-date, or when was the last time this was edited. Well Guru solves for that and so much more. We have been using this tool on our team for over two years now and each new employee that joins our team says how much they wish this tool had been around at their old job.

  • Lots of health history information per client on one screen.
  • Very easy usage for team collaboration.

Guru

  • Organization - This is really a two-fold strength. Yes, GURU provides organization for overall knowledge, but the tool itself is also extremely flexible with how that organization can be attained. We, at present, have 6 distinct collections of knowledge for everyone in the company to access with nearly 1200 cards of specialized knowledge which are easy to access and locate. There are still more cards to create and I have no fear that it will clutter and mucky-up GURU to a point where it becomes unwieldy. GURU is designed in such a way to make that difficult to do.
  • Chrome Extension - The mere existence of a Chrome extension is bewilderingly amazing. Rather than needing to launch a separate tab in Chrome, the extension offers a mini search bar with top results in about 2 seconds. This makes using GURU too easy. I do not want to increase the amount of tabs I have open in Chrome (Chrome is memory intensive) and I do not have to with this extension.
  • Automatic Verification System - It is pretty fantastic that with this high level of organization comes a huge responsibility to ensure the accuracy and correctness of the body of knowledge. The good news is that its automated at your discretion. We have many cards set up to require re-verification every quarter (things change fast in our world) which is extremely helpful. Otherwise, new employees might learn from incorrect information and existing employees may have incorrect information reinforced. With the verification system, we don't have to worry about that

Cons

Custify

  • There was a problem integrating our CRM at first, and to be honest, I almost switched to another product because it's a big deal for us, but they got it worked out significantly faster than any of us guessed it would take, so we stayed, and I'm glad it worked out.
  • The main data point still missing is global revenue. I reached out and they said it's in the works. The software is making us money, so we're staying and hope this works out as fast as the CRM issue.

  • There is no notion of "drafts" (yet). This can be difficult when you want to write something in Guru but you're not necessarily ready to share with the world yet.
  • There is no way to add default search filters. As an administrator of the tool, this means I have to choose between restricting the information that certain users may not need on a daily basis or allowing said information to dilute search results simply because it might be useful to them at some point.
  • My users occasionally complain of slow performance, and of losing in-progress cards entirely if their browser crashes.

Overall a great tool with very useful features. It's UI seems a bit clunky and there is no full dashboard. Without these it takes a bit of work to find what you need and get an overview of current activity. Also, implementing everything takes a bit of work. I would recommend it to any saas that is serious about scaling and has a customer success dept

Philipp has been there for us throughout the process. Very nice guy and a great help. He guided us in setting KPIs, goals, healthscores. Really gave us a lot more than we wanted. We also had some custom integrations and even though they did not support them, their team released a patch for our CRM so we could integrate it

I never actually required contacting the Guru support team. That could be because creating new Guru cards or editing existing ones was very intuitive. One issue I did have was that when it came time to export all of the content in Guru it was very difficult and cumbersome so I would recommend making that an easier, cleaner process.

Alternatives Considered

Custify

This software makes it easy to analyze your data and optimize your onboarding - maybe the easiest I've seen, but you've got to be willing to dig into its features and setting. And of course without their Concierge Onboarding this is not so easy.

Guru

Google Drive is an excellent tool for database and large file sharing but very clunky when needed for quick-hits or answers. Guru had come in and knocked it out of the park. Guru has given us the ability to utilize both successfully throughout multiple teams.

Return on Investment

Custify

  • Positive impact on churn reduction.
  • Easy view of the customer onboarding progress.
  • Playbooks make contacting a specific group of clients very easy.

Guru

  • Our ticket resolution times went from over 8 hours to just over 2 hours.
  • We no longer have a continuous conversation between support and developers allowing developers to focus on developing.
  • Having the same information across teams has proven helpful too.
