UserTesting solves the problem of recruitment. Thanks to UserTesting I can recruit participants from different countries around the world with the characteristics I need. Recruitment is a very difficult process for a small research team and I sometimes still struggle with that; for example, when recruiting minors for research. But not having to do the whole recruitment and reward process is a huge benefit.

To train customers on how to use new features. To survey our customers within the software. Read full review Taking notes with video clips. I can take notes while I am watching a session and I can create clips of UX issues or bugs occurring. This really helps when I share them with other teams. Exporting all your notes. I analyze all usability tests by exporting my notes from UserTesting. I wish I could bulk export multiple tests though. Setting up demographics. This helps me reach out to users who are similar to our audience. Setting up screeners. Some studies require specific audiences (using a specific tool etc.), by setting screeners I can make sure I reached the correct audience. Read full review Cons I find the reporting and analytics to be a little light. They could improve custom reporting capabilities. Would like to see the capabilities of the Pendo tagging tool built into the platform. (don't launch a separate product). I find the tagging tool does a much better job at selecting the components to be tagged than the platform does. Sometimes takes a while to refresh counts when adding a new tag. Read full review The organization of the work spaces/dashboards could use some work. I don't feel as supported as I used to from a customer success perspective. I used to have dedicated, go-to professionals to reach out to about my account who knew my project context, account history, etc. Recently we've been pushed into general support pools, and it doesn't feel like my account gets any personalized attention anymore. I would like to see a more refined experience for collaborators - the test plans I share with them are plain text/hard to read. Would be nice to be able to conduct focus groups using this tool.

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.

I'm very happy with my experience of the product and the level of service and learning resources they provide. If the service becomes more expensive than it currently is then we might not be able to justify additional cost - but this is theoretical. I would recommend UserTesting and would ideally renew our contract.

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

The video review interface is user-friendly and makes it easy to navigate between different test responses. This helps us quickly analyze and understand the feedback we receive from users.
UserTesting's platform is straightforward and intuitive to use when setting up tests. We can easily select the type of test we want to conduct, define our objectives and criteria, and invite participants to take the test.

They've been great anytime that we have needed help with something. They also have some really great help articles. We're able to figure most things out through their articles, but when we've had to call in they've been very helpful and we haven't had any problems. I'd highly recommend working with them.

The support team at UserTesting is super helpful, responsive, and overall respectful and nice. They respond to your chat requests very quickly if you need immediate support within the tool, where time is of the essence. If you need support via email, they are quick and responsive there too. They are also very nice and helpful

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.

From a technical perspective, the implementation was extremely smooth. Most of the change management / implementation hurdles were clearing use of the tool through our various security, legal, and information privacy teams. Once these concerns were addressed (UserTesting.com was very helpful in providing all the needed documentation), the implementation process was very simple and we were able to get going right away.

is an industry leader, but they charge an arm and a leg. Working with them you get a lot of support and CSM time, but is it really worth that price tag? Pendo.io was an easy choice for that simple reason.

UserTesting allows for a quicker recruiting process for our studies. Additionally, UserTesting has more unmoderated research features and capabilities. I think that their payment model is also easier than UserInterviews. We typically user UserTesting for reaching our hard to reach segments and recruiting prospective users not already within our product user population.
Read full review Scalability
The package we have limits the number of people who can set up tests. This prevents us from scaling the use of the platform.
Read full review Return on Investment We have had an ROI in reduced support contacts. We have had increased NPS scores due to our ability to target messaging for the right reasons to the right audience members rather than blanket distribution of information. Delayed deployment in certain environments (being worked through) has led to a delay in one business area, but it is not public facing yet so we aren't heavily impacted by that yet.
