PlaybookUX is fabulous for ad-hoc tests with small budgets, but can also scale up to larger projects easily. I've recommended the tool to several people and they love it, too!

UserTesting

Well-suited scenarios for using UserTesting include running comparative user tests between two designs, products experiences, running surveys, asking users to perform a specific task, and then observing how they do it to draw out insights on how to make it simpler and easy. Probably UserTesting is not best suited for doing moderated users test, and running user tests with your own users also one needs to check how many user testers are available in their desired cohort which they want to target.

Pros

PlaybookUX

  • They recruited our demographic.
  • Customer support was awesome.
  • Studies are very easy to set up.

UserTesting

  • Creating interview clips is simple. The video cutting software is easy to use and lightyears ahead of competitors like UserZoom.
  • The pool of participants is large in the US (likely the highest amongst competitors). This makes recruiting for my studies really quick and allows me to go for some segmentation and detail in who I target in my sample.
  • Chat support is responsive and helpful. It's nice to get connected to a customer care agent quickly and they almost always serve you with a solution to the issue.
  • The feature set of User Testing is constantly growing and getting more refined. I appreciate the ability to card sort or launch other types of methods.

Cons

PlaybookUX

  • Roll up summary of all transcriptions
Kevin Conroy | TrustRadius Reviewer

UserTesting

  • 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.

UserTesting has drastically changed the way we research. We are now conducting research at a scale and pace that would be impossible to replicate using our traditional recruitment methods. Additionally, the ease of sharing information and findings out of UserTesting has made our research more dynamic and engaging to stakeholders. We can't imagine a situation in which we step backwards now that we have demonstrated the expansion capability UserTesting provides to an in-house UX research practice.

Setting up a study only takes 5 mins. and you can preview a study before sending it out so you don't make any mistakes.

It was a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature. In fact, the more tests you run, the more confident you get with the system, creating a virtuous cycle in which your testing gets better while your efficiency improves. I had no problems training my staff and colleagues on how to use the tool. Even non-designers were able to use it with ease eventually.

They use intercom so it's very easy to chat them and ask any questions. I really didn't need customer support all that much because it was easy to use but when I did, they were so helpful! They respond to you within minutes and answer any and all questions you have. They actually sent me a video walk though as well.

Support is pretty responsive via a chat or email. The knowledge base on the website is pretty straightforward. I didn't really have a big challenge when using the platform initially. There is no learning curve per se, you choose what user testing you want, select your audience, choose the payment and off you 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.

Alternatives Considered

PlaybookUX

We are previous UserTesting.com customers but found their subscription model to be inflexible for our needs. PlaybookUX not only fit our budget, but the flexibility has let us scale up and scale down testing as needed.

UserTesting

Previously used UserZoom. They did the job to a certain extent but after not being completely satisfied and shopping around we re-trialed UserTesting and [were] pleasantly surprised. Much better than when we had previously trialed UserTesting 12 months previously. Much nicer user interface, more flexibility in terms of functionality and features, and much quicker response times for tests being completed.

Return on Investment

PlaybookUX

  • Quick testing at scale
  • Excellent price points
Kevin Conroy | TrustRadius Reviewer

UserTesting

  • Increased speed and volume of research. We get to do three times more studies than before.
  • Reduces to almost zero the time that researchers dedicate to recruitment for most B2C studies, allowing them to focus on more important tasks.
  • Improved performance of our products - feedback is getting better and better over time.
