We used Pendula as part of our re-engagement program. This was valuable, as we were able to connect with 40,000 or more names. Knowing that either a significant telesales team effort--too expensive and not enough people--would be implausible. We designed an interactive SMS journey that allowed us to begin the process of taking the 40.000 and discovering those who were willing to shop with us again automatically. We also found that promotions and blasts worked really well, were very easy to set up and run, and then the automation on the back to create the Salesforce opportunity. We have also engaged with custom objects and were able to trigger events on internal activities and sales status, such as shipping notifications.

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.
Read full review Pros EOFY campaigns that drove limited time, limited release offers. We could segment our targets and engage those most likely to respond well. Limited release wine offers, again targeting the right buyers, and then designing a series of interactions with them. This enabled sales reps to speak to those most warm. Customer re-engagement. We have very many historical customers. We were able to reach 30,000 or so people and then lead them through several steps towards re-engagement. Targeting smaller customer segments was made easy due to the deep integration with Salesforce. We could create campaigns to account owners of contacts that met criteria--which provided a deeply personal experience. 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 Navigating a variety of journeys can get tricky. They have been steadily improving the interface here. Managing launch times and turning campaigns on and off can be cumbersome. Naming, tagging, and cross-journey reporting would be great. 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.

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.

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.

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
Read full review Implementation Rating
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.

We found the user interface, the customer service, and the feature sets worked very well for us. Pricing was also affordable.

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.
