Soapbox is excellent for meeting management - it helps propose an agenda and questions to kick off one on ones. This is very helpful for managers who need a little nudge when asking the right questions to move the meeting forward. This is where the Soapbox structure serves well. If you need more complex software to handle custom processes, you may need to look elsewhere.

UserTesting
UserTesting solves the problem of recruitment. Thanks to UserTesting I can recruit participants from different countries around the world with the characteristics I need. Recruitment is a very difficult process for a small research team and I sometimes still struggle with that; for example, when recruiting minors for research. But not having to do the whole recruitment and reward process is a huge benefit.

Pros
Wistia
  • Beautiful user interface -- an absolute delight to use.
  • Editing options are easy and useful options within the web-app editor.

UserTesting
  • Taking notes with video clips. I can take notes while I am watching a session and I can create clips of UX issues or bugs occurring. This really helps when I share them with other teams.
  • Exporting all your notes. I analyze all usability tests by exporting my notes from UserTesting. I wish I could bulk export multiple tests though.
  • Setting up demographics. This helps me reach out to users who are similar to our audience.
  • Setting up screeners. Some studies require specific audiences (using a specific tool etc.), by setting screeners I can make sure I reached the correct audience.

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.

I'm very happy with my experience of the product and the level of service and learning resources they provide. If the service becomes more expensive than it currently is then we might not be able to justify additional cost - but this is theoretical. I would recommend UserTesting and would ideally renew our contract.

UserTesting
The video review interface is user-friendly and makes it easy to navigate between different test responses. This helps us quickly analyze and understand the feedback we receive from users.
UserTesting's platform is straightforward and intuitive to use when setting up tests. We can easily select the type of test we want to conduct, define our objectives and criteria, and invite participants to take the test.

We haven't had the chance to reach out to Wistia about Soapbox support, but I know Wistia (as a brand) is epic on all fronts -- sales, marketing & support. So if I had the need to reach out, I'm sure I'd get a reply in a prompt and satisfactory manner.

The support team at UserTesting is super helpful, responsive, and overall respectful and nice. They respond to your chat requests very quickly if you need immediate support within the tool, where time is of the essence. If you need support via email, they are quick and responsive there too. They are also very nice and helpful

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

Where Zoom and GoToMeeting focus on the meeting itself, Soapbox goes more in-depth and gives the structure that a lot of managers are looking for. In my case, it was the question prompts, shared meeting notes, and meeting feedback that provided the most value. Seeing changes to agenda and notes in real-time is also very helpful.

UserTesting
UserTesting allows for a quicker recruiting process for our studies. Additionally, UserTesting has more unmoderated research features and capabilities. I think that their payment model is also easier than UserInterviews. We typically user UserTesting for reaching our hard to reach segments and recruiting prospective users not already within our product user population.

The package we have limits the number of people who can set up tests. This prevents us from scaling the use of the platform.

Return on Investment
Wistia
  • It's reducing friction when explaining complex topics to leads & customers.
  • We've had more memorable emails for leads, as they see a custom video is recorded for them.

  • Cost savings of over $100K as we dont involve our research vendors as much as we used to do in the past
  • Better tested experience get out in the market quickly even when we don't have enough time available with our researchers; our designers who are well-trained on usertesting.com can test out quickly
