SiteSpect

Some areas where SiteSpect is well suited:1. It is suited for testing websites which are specifically built for promoting brands and selling products as it helps optimise the customer feel and overall experience on the website.2. It is quite good for checking the overall interactivity and engagement of a website from user's perspective.Some areas where SiteSpect is less appropriate:1. When the testing and QA engineers are new to the system or less experienced on this tool.2. When sites are just for reading content. For ex - news websites.

Webtrends Optimize

Webtrends optimize is a marketing solution aimed squarely at transactional and eCom based websites. I would only recommend a colleague to engage with the solution once the marketing dept is at a point where their website is fully optimized in regards to SEO and all the other fundamentals in order to truly build upon what Webtrends can offer. This shows you an easier way of measuring your ROI and the money you will invest with the tool-moving forward.

Pros

SiteSpect

  • One of the primary reasons we selected SiteSpect was the fact that the experience is flicker-free. From that standpoint, it is still more capable than any platform we've seen demonstrated.
  • SiteSpect is very useful to run "target" type campaigns. For our purposes, we can quickly deploy changes that would require more lengthy core development times.
  • SiteSpect's support is top notch, and the tool is so robust that almost any testing scenario can be realized.
William Van Fleet | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webtrends Optimize

  • Intuitive test set-up makes for a low learning curve.
  • Ability to create custom data tables which enable exporting of visitor level data for more in-depth analysis outside of the Webtrends Optimize platform.
  • Visual Editor WYSIWYG interface enables non-technical users to easily execute basic tests.
Michael O'Connor | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

SiteSpect

  • SiteSpect has a number of areas that are a bit difficult for users to understand, the main one being traffic allocation. Without getting into a long example the basic fact is that if you have 10 experiments running, it is very possible to have a very difficult time understanding how much traffic is going to each test, which is obviously not ideal for A/B testing. This problem is being addressed and hopefully will be fixed before 2017.
  • SiteSpect is very powerful, and it does have a GUI interface to help you make simple changes to your website, however to really use it to its potential, you will need developers who are comfortable with advanced CSS and JavaScript to use it.
  • The workflow of setting up experiments in Sitespect is also a little counter-intuitive. This is being addressed and fixed, but as it sits currently it does take some getting used to.
Jonathan Hodak | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webtrends Optimize

  • The cost is a factor. When you're trying to save money, particularly as a startup (a lot of our clients are up-and-comers) it has to be seen as an investment...but the cost to implement the system is fairly large.
  • There's a bit of a steep learning curve, you can't just dive into the program.
  • It's not impossible but it's not as easy as snapping your fingers to easily implement the program cross-platform.

I'm no longer at the company where I used SiteSpect, but based on my 18+ months as the manager responsible for the use of SiteSpect, I'd definitely recommend continuing with the product. I've since recommended it to one other company. SiteSpect has been a great business partner - the level of customer support that I got was outstanding over the time that I used the product.

Difficulty was getting business units to take the time and spend the money to test, and then implement, best options.

Set up of basic tests that do not use segmentation or targeting is an intuitive experience that can be learned quickly by new users. However, as the need for segmentation and other more advanced capabilities arise, the experience begins to degrade.

Online training was ok. Because every test is a custom test, there's only so much that can be covered in a generic lesson.

Alternatives Considered

SiteSpect

SiteSpect is a whole different ball game when it comes to these other tools. SiteSpect is about creating a testing culture within your business for continual website improvements. These tests can be conducted without any developer intervention by our clients. Once SiteSpect is setup, we are free to test anything and everything. In the way it works, which I will not go into right now, it means with high traffic it doesn't show flicker effect of the variations or slow down our clients sites in any way.
George Ioannou | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webtrends Optimize

Webtrends Optimize can be used for much more complex tests, allows better conversion tracking and data collection. Visual Website Optimizer (VWO) is suitable for smaller, simple projects. Webtrends Optimize comes with an excellent consultancy that could save you a lot of time and resources

Return on Investment

SiteSpect

  • Easily test and optimize the effectiveness of landing pages, layouts, variations of copy, different offers, photos, navigation elements, links, buttons, and more – all without having to change your existing site.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webtrends Optimize

  • So far we haven't seen an ROI that we can accurately measure due to only running a couple of tests that haven't resulted in direct, site wide changes. However, we have learnt a lot about how to set up the right processes and documentation.
