NICE Satmetrix

Satmetrix is best suited if you don't currently use Salesforce. A lot of its main selling points are negated by the virtue of having Salesforce. Case management is in Salesforce, reporting is in Salesforce, the structure that NPX imposes is actually clunky and unwieldy, and is much more streamlined on competing platforms such as GetFeedback and SurveyMonkey. The only thing that leaves is the consultative service on being best practice and I don't really get to see any of that.

Pendo.io

Pendo.io is well suited for companies that want detailed usage information. Page and feature tagging is simple, yet offers incredible information on behaviors (funnels, paths, etc). The Product team finds this detail invaluable in supporting data-driven decisions for design and development.Pendo.io is well suited for companies that need usage information to guide implementation and customer communication. Customized dashboards allow different teams to view at-a-glance information that is important to their work. The in-app guides make it simple and easy for users to access resources without having to navigate away from their work.Pendo.io may not be well suited for companies that need to track text/content entered into text boxes within their application, although we have not found that to be a problem.

Pros

NICE Satmetrix

  • Ease of use; SaaS solution, all web based - simple, straightforward and easy to use
  • Multi lingual; we are able to use multiple languages for our surveys
  • Reporting is very flexible; reports can be run for pretty much any data point that you can capture!
Geoff Gardner, MSPM, MBCS, CITP | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pendo.io

  • High-quality analytics.
  • Pointed delivery that meets the user's needs of information, without destroying the Customer Experience.
  • Dedication to customer success. Anytime I have gone to the Pendo.io team for clarity beyond what shows in their app and docs, they are quick and informative, while updating what they have publicly available.
  • Usability-driven - Pendo.io realizes not everyone uses the same platforms, and makes the best possible availability of integrations and ability to custom-code an integration through their robust API.

Cons

NICE Satmetrix

  • Implementation did not go as well as planned and there were problems.
  • If you are running multiple surveys, slicing and dicing data is not that simple.
Lawrence Kravitz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pendo.io

  • I would love it if Pendo.io would add a dedicated space where you can work on segments. Having to access them through drop-downs in random places throughout the app isn't the best.
  • I'd love for them to expand their integrations with other programs that support product managers.

The previous experience was so negative that even if they have improved since then it wouldn't help. Another more pertinent reason is because we have an existing 3 year contract with Medallia. Lastly, vendor transitions in our environment (B2B in 132 countries) is extremely painful. I've managed two of them and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

We have had an excellent experience with Pendo. When we've had questions or concerns, Pendo is very quick to respond and communicate with us. We have experienced top-notch customer support and customer engagement. We have actually modeled some of our implementation and product processes after Pendo's examples.

Overall, Pendo provides a smooth interface, especially with the most recent update, and I couldn't imagine using or learning any other platform so product focused. From the moment I log into Pendo, I know where I'm going and what I'm looking for and I'm able to find that, through the interface, in as little time as possible. This helps keep me focused on doing other tasks at work so I'm not overburdened with hunting things down in the system

My initial review of Pendo was glowing - as was my experience at the time. Since then Support, which was once a huge Pendo plus, has become a disaster. They've moved away from dedicated CSMs - at least for a segment of accounts - and to a centralized support model.. however, it can take a week for me to get an initial response to a ticket. I've had to escalate darn near every one in recent months, and most never get satisfactorily resolved. Feels like major scaling issues going on at Pendo, and a whole lot of untrained people. And yes, this will make me reconsider renewing at the end of the year.

The training schedule was well thought out and tailored to meet our needs. Chantelle stayed with us through the whole implementation and made sure that we were good to go.

Alternatives Considered

I haven't evaluated any other products. Our executive team selected NPS as the preferred measurement of customer sentiment and Satmetrix is the only certification company I am aware of.

Pendo.io

Pendo is much simpler than the competition:
  1. WalkMe seems to be very robust for guided walkthroughs, but the UI for both authors and visitors is clunky by comparison to Pendo.
  2. Google Analytics tracks anything and everything... but only if someone else has set it up properly. It's very difficult for someone without direct access to the code to start tracking anything, or to make sense of it once they do. Pendo is lightyears ahead in this regard.
Also Pendo has the very cool capability of allowing you to look backwards in time, and see analytics for the past--even if you hadn't yet set up the specific tags you want to track for that period in the past. (I believe you DO have to have Pendo already installed for that period, but you don't have to have specified everything in advance; you can do that later.)

Return on Investment

NICE Satmetrix

  • With the knowledge gained front he transactional surveys, Satmetrix helped us significantly improve our customer service processes.
  • Combined with the relationship survey, we were ultimately able to improve our customer retention by over 20% within 2 years.
Rob Ellison | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pendo.io

  • 95% reduction in required dev resources, freeing them up for more product development
  • Roughly a 400% increase in effective customer messaging from 2017 (31 guides) to 2018 (currently, 141 guides), spurring all kinds of engagement from more feature usage & discovery to education & in-app training.
  • 100% of all new features and feature updates are now substantiated by quantitative and qualitative data, in-part sourced from Pendo.
