Experience management category comparisons

As organizations have begun to embrace the experience economy and encouraged rapid decision-making by frontline employees, it’s created a culture where multiple individuals, teams and other departments collect feedback from customers, prospects, employees, partners, suppliers and other stakeholders at every touchpoint.

The problem, however, is that much of this experience data (X-data) is collected in a fragmented and unsupervised way, spread across disparate tools, vendors and consultants. The rise of freemium survey and market research tools like SurveyMonkey and Google Forms has only contributed to this challenge, resulting in millions of surveys, massive data silos and growing security risks as personal information is collected at scale.

You’re here because not only do you want to consolidate your experience data to get a singular view of customer journeys, you also want the best and most secure survey tools for research and real-time data analysis to drive breakthrough insights. And that’s where we can help.

Here, we compare Qualtrics CoreXM against Alchemer on five key categories of market research and experience design.

How the platforms perform

Real-time analysis,
actions and alerts

92% for Qualtrics, 88% for Alchemer

More diverse options to pose questions lead to more detailed and varied insights and make surveys more accessible. This category measures a platform’s ability to cater questions to certain research methods or audiences for maximum return.

Understanding your customers is key to improving and growing your business — but you won’t be able to do so unless you know more about them.

By asking the right survey questions at the right points in their journey, you can capture the information you need to make informed decisions. But only if you’re using the right tools to begin with.

When it comes to market research and surveys to aid experience design and transformation, you need a tool that allows you to not only ask hundreds of questions, but also determine their type and configure them yourself.

HOW THE PLATFORMS PERFORM

Security

92% for Qualtrics, 88% for Alchemer

Security measures a platform’s ability to keep customer and employee data safe at all times. This includes adherence to recognized standards for risk management and security compliance, such as ISO 27001, FedRAMP and HITRUST.

For organizations around the globe, data security is not just a key requirement but also a competitive advantage.

From managing sensitive data to complying with GDPR, those that can demonstrate their ability to keep customer and employee data safe, anywhere, anytime, are pulling far ahead of those that can’t.

Your customers and employees expect you to keep their information safe — but do you have a platform capable of doing so?

How the platforms perform

Multilingual surveys
and localization

85% for Qualtrics, 80% for Alchemer

Multilingual surveys and localization measure an organization’s ability to quickly, easily and accurately translate survey content into several languages so that it can be distributed to various audiences.

If you want to carry out research across geographies, multilingual surveys and localization are essential.

Through localization, you can translate your surveys into several languages before distributing them to your target audiences. Respondents then select their preferred language(s) and can fill in your surveys with confidence. This not only results in higher response rates, but also more accurate answers as nothing’s lost in translation and it’s a better experience overall.

The best research platforms will enable you to manage survey translation and consolidate research data in one place, making it far easier for your international teams to glean insights and do regional breakdowns. It’s this kind of capability that truly sets researchers apart.

Quality of support

87% for Qualtrics, 86% for Alchemer

Quality of service and support measures an organization’s ability to help and empower customers. This means maintaining effective communication, being transparent, caring and trustworthy. It also looks at the flexibility and reliability of the services provided — from routine assistance to on-demand and on-site services, e.g. implementation and training.

No matter the tool — the quality of service and support provided by your market research vendor is critical in ensuring customer satisfaction and adoption. And the brands that continue to deliver, are those that are winning.

It’s all about having a customer-centric approach; whether you’re updating software or running on-site training sessions. When you deliver world-class support, you not only retain your existing customers — you attract new ones as people begin to advocate on your behalf.
