Overall Satisfaction with

Pendo is used to understand user behaviors, flows through the application, and other attributes like browser and retention. It offers a highly visible way to understand if users are navigating the app as expected, and reaching the right pages and events in the process. Highly-visible account and page segmentation make it easy to really identify gaps and trends.
  • Account and page segmentation with color and tag grouping.
  • User behavior and attribute tracking.
  • NPS, user flow maps, and grouped page reports.
  • Easier site integration and setup.
  • Mobile experience.
  • Deeper support for single page apps.
  • Visibility into feature and page adoption.
  • See user dropoff and roadblocks.
  • Use metrics for account-based marketing.
Pendo is more visual and offers better native user tracking, without the need to be a data scientist or master the tool. It plugs into your existing software and lets you overlay surveys, NPS, click, page, or even flow tracking with any developer interaction. Like others, Pendo can be deployed with Segment to reduce installation complexity.
Pendo is best for situations where you are trying to understand basic user progress through an app, see where pages shine or offer a block, or identify feature uptake. It seems to do particularly well with new or established startups with complex workflows or multiple personas. NPS and behavior tracking are a breeze.

A highly-visual analytics tool (versus one more rooted in raw data)
We would implement more criteria around visual support and installation steps. Our criteria would need to include more support for how the product is actually installed and used, its applicability to single page applications, and its support for native workflows. While many of these were supported out of the box, it was important to know during the sales process. Implementation

Use Segment to install and cut developers out of the work cycle!
Change management was minimal - This kind of tool can offer a painless, impactful way to channel information across an organization.
  • Mobile support
  • Installation through Segment
  • Tracking unique pages in a complex app Support

Support is fast, knowledgeable, and goes out of their way to find solutions. Our particular question had to do with Segment integration, and was resolved immediately.

Quick Initial Response
No - We do not have utilization constant or high enough to suggest this kind of investment.
Pendo's mobile support is emerging, and sales/support have kept us abreast of support every step of the way. The ongoing dialog has helped us plan our investment and next steps every time.


Pendo is easy to use, but you still need to know what you're tracking. Until then, it will show a lot of information that you may not know how to leverage.
