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.

Totango

If you have a team that might be dealing with high account loads where having automated activities and touchpoints to customers would be a benefit, I would recommend Totango. We have offices all over the world and there are also things we do in the US that are custom to how we need it so having that level of customization is also important. We also have integrated some of our other tools so activities from other teams also feed into our dashboards and give us full visibility into the account.

Pros

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.

Totango

  • Totango really allows flexibility in dashboarding a client contract. You can pull in all the relevant metrics into one spot to help make efficient use of CSM and management time.
  • Integrates well with Salesforce contract records. This is nuanced, but other vendors interact at the "opportunity" level in SFDC. For Services execution, it needs to be focused on the contract. This allows a lot of flexibility in designing the flow.
  • Reporting is pretty easy to set up. You can slice and dice the segments and create reports based on these segments.
  • There are a wide range of "TouchPoint" options in Totango, so you can log Kick Offs, QBRs, Renewals, Escalations, Nurture... TouchPoints. Super easy for CSMs to add and Management to report on.
Stephen Wilson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

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.
Emily Hardin | TrustRadius Reviewer

Totango

  • Unannounced forced changes to UI (was able to revert)
  • Some improvements seem to just create more clicks
  • If you do too much at once, the UI can take a second to catch up while it saves changes on the back end

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.

The software has lot of issues. We are saving things and then it disappears which creates lot of confusion as well as problems. Money is also lost because of it. The employees also get confused and then they end up with lot of problems with the customer. The notification is not that great. It's so bad and cannot be completely read. So when a pile of notifications come we will ignore all of them.

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

I think it is easy to use but needs work on the user interface to make it easy to access specific functions. The side bar needs to be categorized so you understand why you would use it. There are also tabs that you can't access as an everyday user so you don't know why they are visible

Totango is available all the time . the only problem is that some times it takes time to load specially the records of the customers. The data loading inside the customer account is fast. It may be because of internet service but still it can i,prove a lot. i have seen other competitors software which is faster

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.

Totango has been easy for our team to integrate most of our new features into, which is great considering we have to factor in the customers' usage of the new features into all of the health and usage metrics we have. It has taken a while to integrate our second product however, which is why I would rank this a 7.

Alternatives Considered

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.)

Totango

Two main gaps made us choosing Totango instead of Gainsight:1. Pricing - We do believe Gainsight has a great product and service, but our company can't afford it before scaling.2. Flexibility of onboarding - For us, the fast implementation and the lean mindset is really important. Gainsight was not able to give us that. With them, we would have to travel to the US to the onboarding and take a lot of time to get it live. Totango really met our expectations on this matter, we've implemented a first account's health overview in less than one month.

Information keeps missing and changing in totango . Because of that there is are lot of problems with it. We need to manually keep the backup in an another file. More over if in case we take the backup its so hard to track since its all in numbers. Totango can be much better if the cloud storage is working fine. My company is planning to discontinue due to this factor

  • We have not tracked the specific dollar amount that we have earned from our investment in terms of dollars retained or upsold as a direct result of the Totango software.
  • Increase in win rate on disputes over payment with clients when we started using Totango.
