By far the best price for the available features. They had a really easy demo scheduling process (and had availability to demo within a day or two where some of the other products were a week+ to schedule). You can build unlimited guides and if you don't hit your user limit …

I would recommend this to teams who have multiple people who can work together in getting the necessary source codes input, the guides built, and the parameters identified. I would also recommend this product to anyone who is primarily concerned about price. Compared to competitors, the price vs the feature set was by far the best out of the 6 companies I demoed with. If one person is trying to get this set up and it isn't part of their full-time job, it will take a while because there is a pretty big learning curve as to what order to do things. Further, once the basics are set up, it does take a fair amount of time and testing to build the walk-throughs, especially if you want to use advanced logic

  • Great analytics on our platform, usage and adoption by users, and surveys
  • Very friendly community of users who help each other all the time and structured upskilling programs, weekly tips keep the learning going

Cons
UserGuiding
  • The initial setup process isn't as transparently intuitive as it was sold
  • It's a fairly large barrier to entry for one person to get the guides set up
  • We weren't instructed how to 'turn off' the URL hits until we had our parameters segmented so the first two months we hit our limits before anything was even launched on our end. That made testing hard.

  • Firefox plugin: The only time I use Firefox is when building a walk-thru. I would like to be able to use Chrome to build the walk-thrus.
  • Logic: Walk-thrus, Launchers, Shoutouts and walk-thru steps use different logic. I can't always fire something based on a click or URL when sometimes I would like to.
  • Design: You can use CSS to customize the look of your walk-thrus, but there isn't a way to remove the sidebar color of the walk-thrus.

WalkMe has done a great job of making their tool easy to use. However because it is a Firefox plugin it causes me to need another browser and sacrifice the left 2 - 3 inches of my display, when working on a laptop this makes it a bit painful. Also when publishing you can organize your list of walk-thrus, the window size is small and limited to the constraints of the WalkMe tool.

The WalkMe Support Team was phenomenal. My support rep made a genuine effort to ensure my success with using the WalkMe Software. She was kind, patient, and very knowledgeable on the software. If there was a question she did not know the answer too, she would find the answer and get back to me as soon as possible

By far the best price for the available features. They had a really easy demo scheduling process (and had availability to demo within a day or two where some of the other products were a week+ to schedule). You can build unlimited guides and if you don't hit your user limit because you failed to identify target parameters at the start, that is a huge selling point ;)

My understanding is that WalkMe was selected based on its capability to support our requirements for our enterprise software. We wanted a product that allows us to provide help at the point of need, provide as little or as much help to guide the user to successfully use the product, and a product that is scalable and can support our growing capabilities.

Return on Investment
UserGuiding
  • We lost two months due to running out of 'hits' before we were able to target the right fields. This was partly our fault for not having enough time to dedicate to it, but it would have been helpful to have a 'pause' button or be told to look out for this scenario.
  • We canceled our account after 4 or 5 months because I, as the sole user on our team, didn't have nearly enough time to build out the guides the way we had envisioned. It wasn't quite as easy to understand as I'd hoped. It was doable, but a slow process and I got too busy with other pressing issues with my company.
  • It would have been a good ROI for the available features and price if I'd had a solid amount of time to really build it out and understand it better. The training options could have been a lot more user-friendly to help bridge that knowledge gap.

  • With a promise to help onboard, we found that as people interacted with the walk throughs they didn't get any significant value. Self-service wasn't improved, in fact, we got more complaints from the walk throughs than help from them.
  • NPS surveys were a nightmare to try and integrate with our CRM so we could action the results. Lost time and energy without much support from the WalkMe team
  • No improvement to our Product Adoption, so all cost and time and energy spent on implementation was a loss.
