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.

I would recommend this to teams who have multiple people who can work together in getting the necessary source codes input, the guides built, and the parameters identified. I would also recommend this product to anyone who is primarily concerned about price. Compared to competitors, the price vs the feature set was by far the best out of the 6 companies I demoed with. If one person is trying to get this set up and it isn't part of their full-time job, it will take a while because there is a pretty big learning curve as to what order to do things. Further, once the basics are set up, it does take a fair amount of time and testing to build the walk-throughs, especially if you want to use advanced logic

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

  • The initial setup process isn't as transparently intuitive as it was sold
  • It's a fairly large barrier to entry for one person to get the guides set up
  • We weren't instructed how to 'turn off' the URL hits until we had our parameters segmented so the first two months we hit our limits before anything was even launched on our end. That made testing hard.

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.

By far the best price for the available features. They had a really easy demo scheduling process (and had availability to demo within a day or two where some of the other products were a week+ to schedule). You can build unlimited guides and if you don't hit your user limit because you failed to identify target parameters at the start, that is a huge selling point ;)

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.

  • We lost two months due to running out of 'hits' before we were able to target the right fields. This was partly our fault for not having enough time to dedicate to it, but it would have been helpful to have a 'pause' button or be told to look out for this scenario.
  • We canceled our account after 4 or 5 months because I, as the sole user on our team, didn't have nearly enough time to build out the guides the way we had envisioned. It wasn't quite as easy to understand as I'd hoped. It was doable, but a slow process and I got too busy with other pressing issues with my company.
  • It would have been a good ROI for the available features and price if I'd had a solid amount of time to really build it out and understand it better. The training options could have been a lot more user-friendly to help bridge that knowledge gap.

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.
