A growing company with a desire to learn all that GS has to offer

We switched to Gainsight only a month or so after I started with ServiceTitan. I was not involved in the decision-making process nor was I all that familiar with our previous software. We were using, and what I remembered most about their limitations was the lack of historical tracking. It was all stagnant.

As part of our software evaluation, we looked at Totango and Natero. Gainsight's deep integration with salesforce, community support, and product feature set was eventually what led us to procure from Gainsight. Their team is committed to customer success and as an organization just starting out with that discipline it was important to have resources that we could learn from.

I love that there are so many customer success related activities that can all be streamlined in one interface using Gainsight. These activities include training survey responses, tracking our product's API data (usage data), incorporating with the sales process in Salesforce, utilizing Google analytics, etc. I also love that they take feature requests into consideration often and have a highly active support community.
Other products did not have EVERYTHING that Gainsight has and Gainsight's range of customer experience was much greater than others. We also want to implement things such as Fullstory, which Gainsight doesn't currently support, but there are other products related to Fullstory that Gainsight does support and other Gainsight-similar products do not support those types of products.

I would say Totango is probably the closest, but the Gainsight interface is much better and user friendly from my experience. I love the integration with Salesforce, and you don't get that with ever other software that's similar. Since we signed with Gainsight, we haven't considered leaving due to the fact that we couldn't ask for better service, so comparable products don't necessarily appeal to us without that level of service.

We used Totango for a while, and I was not involved in administering it, but my understanding is that we couldn't get the data to be quite right. Gainsight provides extensive additional functionality, not just on identifying customer health, but on enabling our Customer Success team to *act* on that information.

Gainsight needs some improvement for the Enterprise space but has a lot of potential

Scout did not have the ability to incorporate training and tasks required to complete CTAs. It was a clunky interface. Tableau provided the views into the data but no tracking of the CTAs or tracking of end user activities. However some visualizations of the data was easier to create. Gainsight was selected as it was able to track end users' activities and provide tracking of historical data. It can also provide executive level reporting.

  • Totango,Bluenose Analytics,natero,Preact
No other solution even comes close on the customer success execution part (CTAs, Playbook, single source of truth). Integrated NPS/Surveys is another unique feature. The UI may not be as good as some of the standalone solutions, but full integration in SFDC without requiring an additional sign in more than makes up for that. Gainsight is not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

I liked Totango, the UI was more user friendly but, it didn't integrate with Salesforce as tightly. The sales people and SE were more capable of answering my questions at Totango. In the end, the ability to manage the reporting piece was the key factor that made me select Gainsight. The POC process with Gainsight was more accommodating.
