Sailthru

Sailthu is perfectly suited, no matter what level of technical skill you have or support from an Engineering team. That said, it includes many advanced features which can only be fully utilized when integrated with custom webhooks and after receiving customer data sent via their APIs. There may be easier solutions out there for less technical users or for people wanting a simpler setup to begin with.

UserTesting

It is a great tool for unmoderated testing. It makes it easy and fast to obtain user feedback on prototypes and live products across devices. Some of the testers are there for the money only and rush through the tasks without much elaboration. The live conversation features could also be improved.

Pros

Sailthru

  • Personalization - one of the most important things you can utilize when emailing people.
  • Segmentation - Sailthru makes it very easy to build an audience based off their criteria; there are so many different fields to choose from. We use this mostly for geo-targeting and engagement.
  • Analytics - post-campaign analytics are very easy to look at, customize your view, and download as a csv to share with your team and company.

UserTesting

  • Scheduling of participants in a fast way
  • Supporting analysis of videos by auto-transcriptions and sentiment analysis
  • Templates for the different tests and inspiration for questions
  • Supporting your own recruited users in myPanel
  • That you can test unlimited for the money you pay, this helps us run a lot of tests.

Cons

Sailthru

  • Giving more practical examples of technical setups, sometimes the only way to understand it is to see it.
  • Can't filter lists by date created or date modified, particularly needed when tracking down a specific list or looking to remove older lists.
  • Can't set up automated data dumps to an email address, has to be sent via API.
Jake Bodmer | TrustRadius Reviewer

UserTesting

  • Sometimes with the A/B testing results it was difficult to find out the feedback accurately to compare
  • No highlighter test means that often users can go down a particular stream of thought, that might not have anything to do with the messaging we're looking to test (even after being prompted)

The biggest factor is that even after two months of trying to go through their credit processes and getting the right consideration for the real damages we had with the tool not being able to send campaigns for days, their sales staff is still not willing to work with us on it, making us do the switch away from them right now. We got extremely disappointed by trying to work with them through those issues.

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.

Their product team is focused on adding features, but what they should focus on is execution of the UI, user-flows, addressing usability issues, and following UX standards (especially in screener/test creator).The product is usable, but it is a drag most of the time.Also, their statistics module from research is unusable - I would love them to follow what SurveyMonkey does in their statistics module.

Their account management / sales staff doesn't seem to be taking the problems you experience very seriously - it took us 3 months and nudge emails to them every 2 weeks to ask for status updates (plus 6 different conversations with different people) to get a (very small credit) for a major issue, which in two months prohibited us from sending campaign emails for 2-3 days at a time.

UserTesting has a great chat feature I've used regularly to help with account and test questions. Our customer support manager has also been proactive about reaching out to our team and seeing areas in which the tool can be improved for our team.

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.

Sailthru

Sailthru provided a powerful, easy-to-use platform that was able to adjust to the needs we had at Dotdash. It was able to support the simple campaigns where we would send static creative to all recipients and the complex dynamic campaigns where we were customizing content. The scale and flexibility really made it a great platform for us to use.

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

Sailthru

  • Sailthru has helped us build a welcome series that's much more effective than anything we had before.
  • It's much easier to analyze transactional campaigns than our previous ESP.
  • We're better able to run A/B tests and learn from the results -- all of which improves our email strategy.
Justin Adler | TrustRadius Reviewer

UserTesting

  • The speed of recruiting allows me to iteratively test and experiment with wording when necessary to get to the point where I know it is being understood which in turn improves the credibility of the research results
  • We haven't yet released the software that I've been testing most of this year, so I can't comment on business impact yet
