Gainsight PX is well suited for companies that are looking to measure customer engagement, usage, and adoption of their products and services. It is also well suited for companies that are looking to gain insights into customer behavior and preferences. Gainsight PX can be used to track customer journeys and measure customer satisfaction.

On the other hand, Gainsight PX is less appropriate for companies that are looking to measure sales performance or customer lifetime value. It is also not well suited for companies that are looking to measure customer retention or customer churn.

Unless you have the time and effort to do this on your own, Stonly is a fantastic tool that helped us communicate with our customers without needing to think about it for too long. It is flexible where needed and we noticed that it is constantly improving as time goes on. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to provide their user's more guidance on how to use their applications or free up some time from the developer's workload.

Pros
Gainsight
  • Backfilling data. Many tools do not have the ability to be tracking elements once they are available and then pull it in and have historical views. You're not starting from scratch once you identify something.
  • Educational Engagements. There are a ton of options for in-app messaging and its very customizable and easy to set up.
  • Product Mapper. Organizing and shifting structure is easy to change. Setting multiple rules on a feature and confirming what you tagged is easy to do.

Cons
Gainsight
  • Walk through functionality is weaker than other providers. If you ask a user to do something on screen, and that action reloads the page, the tour closes. This shortcoming is the primary cause for us using another walkthrough tool.
  • There is no global CSS styling for PX modals. When I make a new CSS refinement, it's limited to that one engagement only. Everytime I have a new message to deliver, I know picking a correct tour type, finding a good starting place in existing CSS and content, working over the CSS to handle new content will all take more time that it takes in other tools with universal styling controls.
  • The page reload tour cancelation also affects surveys. Want to send a CES survey after a user clicks a button that causes a URL change? You can't. Indirectly, you can load the survey if the user has clicked the button < 1 day ago, and is on URL X. If the URL is the same before and after the button click, even this work around wont work.
  • Not sure how effective PX is on mobile, the functionality did not exist while we were building our mobile app, and we've yet to add it in.
  • Would be nice if it could integrate our knowledge base, but only one KB vendor was supported (not our Freshdesk) last I looked

  • More features around tracking and understanding our users.
  • Sometimes run into issues with development and connecting with existing components, which may require rework on our end to get up and running.

I have not had to contact support frequently but when I have I used the chat and my questions were answered immediately. I've also used their knowledge center, help documentation and training videos which are all very thorough. The support we've received from our Customer Success Manager has been helpful as well.

Heap has a great value proposition and very nice user experience. But it lacks the clear funnel analysis that Gainsight PX provides. Plus Heap also does not have integration with a lot of CRMs and Customer data platforms. Also, Additionally if you go in the market to find Heap implementors or SI vendors, you won't find any.

Intercom and Gist are more focused on Live chat, but the knowledge base is part of their offerings. I love that Stonly is really fleshed out and offers deep features built around the customer education experience.

Return on Investment
Gainsight
  • Allow us to integrate actual product usage with Salesforce.
  • Too much developer time went into it, especially when the premise was that this was mostly going to be handled by the Product team. This was mostly because the Gainsight PX event editor doesn't support more complex querying on events.

Stonly
  • Improved time to market for supporting documents.
  • Provided a way for our content team to be autonomous.
  • Helped us think more outside the box on how we tell user's about our new features.
  • Helped migrate outdated users to our new applications.

Gainsight PX Screenshots

Screenshot of Access all of your key metrics in one place.Screenshot of PX Dashboards offer an interactive way of viewing data. By default, Gainsight provides you with the Gainsight PX Dashboard, but you can create separate Dashboards for each user, based on their requirements. 

For example, you can create a Dashboard, set it to private and grant access only to the top-level executives who are interested in viewing the performance of company KPIs. You can create a Dashboard for a Product Manager and include widgets which show key metrics for the product they own.Screenshot of Gainsight PX connects directly to your CRM and other customer data sources, letting you leverage custom events with no limits on what you can explore – all without using any query language.

Track specific events and compare any number of different cohorts and behaviors to learn more about a specific behavior or validate a specific hypothesis. You can use the group by functionality to aggregate results based on specific fields, and you can analyze custom event properties based on the property values. This may come handy when you want to measure the event properties such as video play counts or monetary values you're passing to Gainsight PX via custom events.Screenshot of Product Mapper® is an easy to use way of describing your product features with a simple "point, click and describe."   Each mapped feature can be viewed hierarchically within your Product Feature Tree®.   

Features can be organized in any way that makes sense for your particular application.  For example, you can organize by modules and features or you can nest sub-modules under modules and add features at any level.Screenshot of You can use existing templates while setting up Guide engagements. You can even save the newly created/modified template and use the saved template in the future in order to save time. Once you select the template, you can modify your template–no coding required, but it's there if you want it.Screenshot of Present targeted and timely in-app surveys so you can get more relevant feedback from the right people to better understand their needs and wants, and easily see the results in real-time.
