Pros

I like the constant updates, a great knowledge base. The most amazing part for me that guys are using their own tool for their product management.
When I was testing all customer service software, I needed one that was the best at its core product which is a ticketing and knowledgebase system. This in my opinion is the best at what it does.
Add on top of that an incredibly innovative feedback system that truly helps you prioritize what customers want what.

Pros

Their network of users is amazing for collaborating and helping each other. Great community all around.
IdeaScale meets all my agency needs in fostering a culture of innovation. We enjoy the ease of use, features, and the wonderful customer service.
This tool is fantastic for fostering internal and external innovation. I think that the top down innovation model is outmoded and Ideascale is the best way to shatter it.

Cons

We were constantly struggling to get it to work properly in the beginning. I thought the set up was horribly confusing and time consuming.
The lack of the feature where a user can select his or her language, and automatically have the Knowledge Base switch to that language, is anathema to an SaaS business looking to scale globally.
When you cc someone on a ticket, the cc-ed recipient cannot see the customer's email address. Quite hard to navigate through the interface.

Cons

Another platform is hard to get users to embrace... the government buys a lot of them. They die ignoble deaths.
No channel to submit/capture unsolicited ideas.
Understanding that some are hesitant to try “new things,” my team had to be diligent in our quest to use this platform for ideation.

UserVoice

Every Product Manager's must-have!

Reviewed 7 years ago

I've been working as a Product Manager on various SaaS platforms, and over the past 3 years UserVoice has played an essential role in guiding my product decisions. The array of tools they offer really makes it easy to collect user feedback in a less intrusive way. Most importantly, end-users love the feedback UI, too, and seem to keep continue engaging without me having to solicit feedback over and over again. I've tried other solutions out there - Zendesk, GetSatisfaction, IdeaScale... Nothing worked as well as UserVoice.
