Guru
Chose Guru
Guru is easier to create knowledge, but Highspot is better to organize and customize knowledge organization and what is shown to whom within your organization. Guru is definitely better from a 'keeping content fresh' perspective.
Chose Guru
Guru is the most cost-effective solution for our business. Other tools have a lot of bells and whistles but you pay dearly for them and the sales team may not even know how to use them. Start with Guru and go from there. It's better to have a good base than to overwhelm with …

Guru is fantastic for developing and sharing organization-wide policies and procedures, newsletters, and updates. The triggers feature is incredibly valuable to surface relevant information throughout daily workflows, and it is useful for creating how-to guides. Guru doesn't do well when used as a data dictionary or catalog, given it's lack of integrations with such systems.

Great for delivering insight on which personas are engaging with the material shared. If I've had multiple meetings with personas, but they have not engaged with my proposal, I'm now able to understand the priority of our partnership and how it ranks within their other initiatives.

Pros
Guru Technologies
  • Advises on out-of-date cards that haven't been updated in awhile.
  • Allows for AI search functionality - makes info faster to find.
  • Permits list creation & card favoriting to help keep me organized.
  • Creates pop-out windows so you don't lose your page; can see info side-by-side to save time.

Highspot
  • From an admin perspective, the platform is very easy to navigate, build and launch new content and informational pages for our team.
  • The search feature within the platform is very accurate and does a great job of curating the top content based off of what our reps are looking for.
  • The ability for our reps to hit 'edit in word online' or 'edit in Excel online' is great because our reps don't have to download a doc, edit it and then re-upload into the system. Any changes they make are auto-saved and stored right in Highspot. They can then present straight from the platform.

Cons
Guru Technologies
  • Guru could improve on search mechanics. Sometimes, providing a keyword to search does not pull up the most relevant article/card.
  • Guru could also improve the content to be much clearer and more precise, especially with the step-by-step process. Fixing this issue prevents agents from being confused about the process.

Highspot
  • The mobile platform is not as user-friendly, missing some of the ease of use from a mobile device.
  • The Help section is not as comprehensive or accurate. Often a search yields answers that are not relevant to the issue trying to be resolved.
  • Content can only be sorted alphabetically or by date, it would be useful to be able to sort by author or department as well.

I love Highspot, it saves me a ton of time every single day. I like how my correspondence looks professional and I know what I'm sending is accurate and company approved. I'm able to add it to an email template in seconds and choose multiple brochures if it fits the information the student wants or requested. I can also customize templates to make them company specific when appropriate

Usability
Guru Technologies
I sometimes find myself clicking around trying to remember how to reorganize my cards especially if I want them in multiple folders. Other than that it's simple to use but not in a way that feels bare bones, more that it's very intuitive.

I use Highspot every day. It is basically my go-to spot to find anything I need to know about the product, like pricing and internal processes. It also helps me provide value-added emails to my prospects with extreme ease. Without Highspot I would not have the current success that I have right now in sales.

Reliability and Availability

I have never encountered an outage with Guru in the year+ we've had it. I also never encountered an outage at the previous company where I used Guru. It has been extremely reliable.

Performance

There is some occasional slowness, or multiple refreshes before content will load. This doesn't happen frequently, though, and I don't get complaints from teammates about it.

Support Rating
Guru Technologies
The only reason I do not give it a a ten is because I think there is still some room for improvement in meeting the different time zone needs of their customers, but overall their support is top notch. Friendly, capable, and quick.

I have not needed any customer support until now, I guess this is because they work on a proactive maintenance of the platform. We have an internal team working with Highspot so if I need help I go to my internal team not directly to Highspot. I have never heard any complaints.

Online Training

I would rate the online training for Guru a strong 8 out of 10. While it lacked the interactive nature of in-person sessions, the content was well-structured and delivered effectively. The training modules were clear and comprehensive, covering all essential aspects of using Guru. The flexibility of online training allowed me to learn at my own pace and revisit topics as needed. Overall, it provided a solid foundation and practical understanding of Guru's functionalities, making it a valuable learning experience despite the virtual format.

You will need a very strong team of guru champions in order to get EVERYONE and EVERYTHING on Guru, it takes some craziness and over talking about guru everywhere to get people to be exicted, contribute and use. If you are starting any kind of buisness and you need KB, just go for guru as fast as you can because when you will grow you will thank yourself.

Guru prioritizes the domain I work in, and their algorithm gives me results focused on my domain first. Depending on the search terms being used, then they provide what is most relevant to the term searched. Very often, this is a time-saving exercise. We also have access to how many people are reading each card, and we can offer feedback to the owner/deviser of a card if the knowledge there is outdated or if a few lines of information would add to the overall context. The data we can extract helps us understand potential gaps and where we could do better.

Dropbox was sufficient for storing content in an easy to access space but, provided us no value beyond that. SharePoint actually made us less productive due to the amount of time our sales team had to spend searching for the right piece of content. Neither solution provided us any analytics as to what content was being used/engaged with.

Highspot provided us with intuitive content search and organization with the ability to tag keywords, search queries, and fine-tune categorization of all of our content. Highspot also provided us with direct feedback when our customer or prospective customers were viewing content which enabled us to follow-up at the perfect time and was directly attributed to several closed won opportunities. Their Outlook integration is the icing on the top as it allows our sales team to share content, access email templates, and link communication back to Salesforce without ever having to leave the email client. With these features combined Highspot has made me drastically more productive and efficient in my work.

Contract Terms and Pricing Model

Guru is somewhat expensive compared to what our org is typically willing to spend on software solutions. Additionally, there is a price difference per seat when paid monthly versus annually, which was a big downside for us as my company didn't want to commit to an annual cost.
