It is being used by the marketing department in particular and across the organization for referring customers. Our customer base also uses it to refer to others. The process is seamless and does not require much training as it is self-explanatory. It eliminates the process and time for manually referring new customers and keeping a record of the payouts.
  • Refer new customers.
  • Automatically include the referral bonus.
  • Disperse the bonus within the required time without external help.
  • Should have more detailed information.
  • Dashboard should be more specific.
  • Should have a mobile app.
Should be used by organizations to promote business and bring in new customers, particularly the ones with a bigger customer base. It may or may not be used by small businesses as the data is not too much to store, however, I recommend using it anyway as it will save time and, in turn, let you do more for your business.
I have not yet faced any issue while using the features of this service. But whenever I needed help with anything, I've gotten a satisfying response in terms of resolution and response time. I am sure I will get the same response when there is an issue that needs immediate attention.

Ambassador is being used to sign up current customers in an attempt to have them referred their colleagues. This proves to be another source of income for our organization.
  • Manage Payouts
  • Documentation
  • Integrations with CRM
  • A more flexible API
  • More Flexible Webhooks
Ambassador is a great tool if you are just looking to connect it directly to your CRM. Once we start to look to integrate it to any other internal DBs or tools it becomes more difficult. A lot of the out of box features will need a developer assistance.
Support is ok. Any questions that take a higher tier of support takes some time to get resolved.

Currently, we use Ambassador as a secondary ingress controller. It addresses our needs by facilitating adding dynamic routes for our incredible number of endpoints. That way it makes it very easy to get multiple parallel microservices we need to be deployed to support our testing and quality assurance needs.
  • Simple syntax
  • Easy to understand
  • Easy to install
  • Documentation is not updated
  • Implementing external authentication doesn't always work as described in the documentation
  • The Administration console is limited
Ambassador is really well suited for scenarios were you need to give power and freedom to your developers so they can take advantage of the self-service approach. One of the few scenarios I can not recommend using Ambassador is in the case you are planning to not using Kubernetes as it is a solution designed to work specifically on that platform.
Overall the support has been great and quick to answer the requests I've submitted in the past. I was originally using the community/open source version and I can't say it was the best experience I had, it wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. I believe the biggest issue was that they refer to the documentation a lot but the documentation isn't updated regularly so I feel it's lagging behind the most recent versions.
