Overall Satisfaction with Usabilla

Usabilla allows us to administer an intercept survey on our website. This allows us to ask in-context, at the moment, simple questions to the user. The in-context aspect of the survey is important, as Usabilla allows us to select a target sample, location, or an event trigger for the survey, such as after encountering a new feature on a page. This data can be more trustworthy than sending a follow-up survey over email to those users, who may have forgotten their thought processes as they interacted with our product.
  • Continuous feedback such as CSAT or NPS score.
  • Monitors feedback trends on recurring surveys through analytics dashboard.
  • In context, in the moment data rather than during a follow up survey.
  • Doesn't allow video responses or recordings of the user's screen like some competitors.
  • Limited to primarily desktop instead of mobile web or app.
  • Requires some engineering help in order to target certain javascript event triggers.
  • Collects ongoing feedback.
  • Feedback tends to be short and general given the size of the application for text entry.
  • Opportunity to ask short intercept questions rather than waste time and resources on larger survey sends through CRM.
I have Hotjar, Sprig, and Usabilla in my workplace. Usabilla unfortunately has the most limited feature set of the 3 options. The difficulty of administering a Usabilla survey on mobile is a big blocker for my projects. Sprig and Hotjar both allow mobile and allow video recordings (either of a user's screen or a user's webcam for impromptu interviews).

Would you buy Usabilla again?

No

Like stated in previous questions, the difficulty of targeting respondents is a blocker.
I haven't contacted support yet to solve a particular issue. I do have an account manager at Usabilla that I talk to in order to introduce the software to my team but this is just to run over the basic functionality in a live demo setting. The ability to talk to a real person over video call is a benefit though.
Usabilla is an okay option in terms of intercept or continuous feedback software. It works if you need a feedback button on your site, and otherwise do not have recurring mechanisms to collect that same user info. It is also sufficient if you have a very broad audience and imprecise target criteria for respondents (such as just popping up on a certain web page, but do not need to target by pulling from user data such as whether that customer is a prospect vs. active). Anything more sophisticated than that takes a little bit of help from product and engineering teams to get you the right javascript triggers and other criteria.
