Qualaroo

Qualaroo is great for onsite surveys that need to capture additional information like UTM data and talk/interact with Google Analytics through events. The team at Qualaroo has also been great to work with as they navigated our corporation's security policies. They were also great at working with us to find a package that suited our needs within our budget

SurveyMonkey

SurveyMonkey is great for when you need feedback from a large audience (our company is about 30 people) and you want feedback in a simple, quick, and easy way. It's very easy to use (you don't need to be super tech-savvy to understand how to use it) and you get answers immediately. We wouldn't use SurveyMonkey for something that requires more in-depth answers or when we want our employees' answers to remain confidential.

Pros

Qualaroo

  • Rapid roll-out of micro-surveys targeted to specific types of visitors (Qualaroo controls) and/or pages (via regular expressions) without having to use developer resources
  • Easy to brand (add a logo and change colors) to generally match or at least complement the look & feel of our site
  • With the exception of some hiccups we experienced early on with changes Qualaroo was making to the way regular expressions work for targeting "nudges" (micro-surveys), the platform has been very stable and reliable
  • Response notification and aggregate reporting (both online and via downloadable CSV files) are simple and intuitive
  • Easy to "clone" an existing nudge to rapidly modify and launch as a new micro-survey
  • We're able to pass session information directly into a Qualaroo submission from our site so that we can identify respondents without asking for an email address or other unique identifier (so long as they're logged in as returning/repeat site users).

SurveyMonkey

  • A strength for SurveyMonkey is that it is very user friendly. If one should become stuck in an area, the guides that are provided work nicely.
  • Allowing for a large number of participants to be mailed at once is a huge plus.
  • Being able to offer providers a link directly, being FB friendly, is a HUGE plus for our business.

Cons

Qualaroo

  • Reporting could be a bit more comprehensive.
  • The new word cloud report could also have expressions and not just single words.
Nuno Luz | TrustRadius Reviewer

SurveyMonkey

  • The UI feels outdated. That in itself is not a bad thing - you know when you're filling a Survey Monkey, as the interface is easily recognisable. However, while all the other competitors and tools are moving with the times, Survey Monkey seems to be stuck in time. That, however, is the opposite of their app: their mobile development team definitely keeps their app up-to-date with the latest technologies. For instance, they updated their app to support the latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus soon after the devices were released.
  • There's reporting available on the platform, although it feels quite basic. As an analyst I usually require enough features to "slice and dice" the data and work with it, and Survey Monkey doesn't help me all the way. That's not the end of the world however: the reporting available will be just enough for a user who just wants to know the top-level stats, and for advanced users the spreadsheet exports will be enough for you to carry on your reporting in your tool of choice.

For a small business, Qualaroo is expensive. Without being able to accurately compute response rates, it is hard to justify the cost.

It's very budget friendly. I think we pay a little over $200 a year for our annual subscription and we pretty much use it on a monthly basis to get feedback from our members on meetings, conferences, trade shows and gathering contact info.

Usability

Qualaroo

Qualaroo 8.0
Based on 1 answer
Qualaroo's feature set is narrow, keeping the admin interface relatively simple to navigate. Qualaroo recently improved the way users can write and test regular expressions, improving the usability of that feature significantly (this was likely motivated by a high volume of support inquiries to Qualaroo on this feature). The one area where Qualaroo could significantly improve usability is on the ability to design nudges with multiple questions. Adding a drag-and-drop feature to organize questions (even if this doesn't actually affect the branch logic that sequences the questions themselves) would be a big improvement.

The interface it too packed with info and promotions. there isn't a clear distinction between the task-related components on the screen, and upgrade promotions, tips etc. much noise.

I've never experienced an outage where Qualaroo was unavailable. I don't think I've even gotten notices for scheduled down/maintenance time. The platform is always available.

Our developers complain that Qualaroo is just one of several similar site add-ons that slow down our site performance. I'm skeptical that Qualaroo has any measurable impact on our page load times, but don't have any hard evidence either way. The Qualaroo admin interface and reporting mechanisms are all quick and reliable.

Qualaroo is quite responsive, but the representative my team spoke to seemed to have difficulty understanding the technical aspects of the product. They were unable to provide a clear answer about how to compute the response rate. However, they did extend our free trial as well as allow us to see beyond the first 50 responses (you are limited on the free plan).

Qualaroo doesn't offer full-blown online training, at least not that I've used or needed. The online help documentation is adequate and Qualaroo-sponsored webinars are informative.

Alternatives Considered

Qualaroo

I've used other survey tools in the past, like SurveyMonkey, but the closest tool that I've used in the same way is the poll functionality in Hotjar. I find that both are good tools to survey visitors, but Qualaroo provides further advanced features and ease of analysis than relying on Hotjar alone for surveying.

SurveyMonkey

I have never used any other Survey Software/Program, because Survey Monkey has never let me down! If I were to need to find another program to use, I would most likely use the Internet and word of mouth and try to gather recommendations/referrals, but again, I have never felt it necessary to do so.

Scalability

Qualaroo

Qualaroo 5.0
Based on 1 answer
Qualaroo's simplicity has its down sides when it comes to scaling. Managing multiple nudges across multiple domains, at least in the Pro edition, is challenging. The active nudges all appear as a single list on the admin home page, automatically grouped by domains. Archived nudges are on a separate tab. It would be helpful to have a folder system to organize nudges.Also, once you have multiple active nudges that are targeted to different sections of your site using regular expressions, it's difficult to keep track of what is appearing where. It's also difficult, if not impossible, to figure out where you may have competing nudges.And there's no ability to assign reporting or configuration access to other members of your team. The Pro edition has a single login, which must be shared if you have multiple staff who want to use Qualaroo.

Return on Investment

  • Qualaroo has helped us to uncover, diagnose, and treat pain points on our site to improve our visitor's experience
  • From the improved experience, we're hoping to see an uptick in purchases and advocacy

SurveyMonkey

  • When I've used it in the past for college purposes it was a free tool to use so there was no loss.
  • I think it has positively impacted our ROI in the workplace because you get an understanding of what your audience is thinking while remaining confidential.
