Likelihood to Recommend

SiteSpect

SiteSpect is great for businesses with available development resources and a need to provide flicker-free performance. Additionally, the month-to-month service model is attractive considering the contract and implementation prices of most of the tool's competitors. If an organization wants to run a lot of tests with a small team of marketers, I wouldn't recommend a tool as complex as SiteSpect. Effective use of the tool requires a lot of technical skill.

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

  • It is able to intercept the code from your server, inject your code and then it continues on to the end-user's computer with virtually no speed interruptions.
  • It has several different options for performing A/B tests from regular factors to client-side factors, and origin experiments.
  • It is extremely flexible and configurable for the needs of your company or organization.
Jonathan Hodak | 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 recently came out with a feature to test and optimize mobile applications. I have not used this, but it fills an important capability gap with the product I was using at the time.
Bobby Patterson | 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.

Our clients who use our fully managed A/B and Multivariate testing services have been extremely happy with the results. Therefore the D&W and SiteSpect partnership continues to flourish.

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

I have used all the tools in the market. Sitespect kicks them into the curb based on how easy it is to build variations, and hot it doesnt interfere with client load.
Oliver Paton | 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.

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.
