ChurnZero gives you the most bang for your buck!

Pros

The best thing about ChurnZero's software is the responsiveness of their team and their reflective approach to product development. Their CS team is best in class, and their product is constantly updating to reflect requests from customers. Integrations are a breeze with them, which helps us remain flexible as we need new data in ChurnZero from various sources.

Cons

There are times where the UX is confusing to me, but once I figure out how to find something, its very easy to use.

Reasons for choosing ChurnZero

ChurnZero was in a sweet spot between our primary considerations: cost and functionality. It had the right number of features that we were looking for in a price point that fit our budget. Other products were either too expensive or didn't do enough of what we wanted.

Great CS platform

CZ makes it much easier to segment clients and contacts, and to reach out to the right accounts and contacts. Plays and Journeys are sometimes a bit difficult to link (emails to be sent semi-automatically after a specific step of the journey has been completed for example) and Journeys are really something the CSMs struggle dealing with. Otherwise, the Support is always very reactive.

Pros

Multi-currencies, Integrations with other tools we use internally (Salesforce, Wootric, Webhooks, Intercom), ability to create as many segments as needed, native NPS surveys

Cons

Custom dashboards not being included in the standard plan (we have to export the data every time outside CZ to provide the team with graphs), NPS Surveys available only in one language (sending NPS Surveys in different languages means creating different surveys which will result in having several NPSs for the same product - which is not what we want)

Reasons for choosing ChurnZero

Not sure, I was on a sabbatical when my manager decided to make the switch to another tool. But I guess CZ ticked more boxes than the other alternatives that were considered.

Reasons for switching to ChurnZero

We weren't using Amity - no adoption from the team (the one who set it up left the company and we probably never tried to get the best out of Amity)

Ok Tool but Will Deceive to Close the Sale

Pros

Journeys and Plays both have some great elements to them. Journeys for tracking the path of an account through their experiences. Plays for automation or processes.

Cons

During the sales process they told us their integrations worked a certain way and they had certain functionality that they later told us did not work when we tried to get it up and running during the onboarding process. Unfortunately, this occurred quite a few times with little to no recourse. It is very clear that their team is ok with stretching the truth or not giving the full answer in order to close a sale. If they had been honest with the functionality the whole time it would have been easier to adapt but unfortunately, they kept changing their story causing us to lose time and money in continually changing our processes to suboptimal methods as they revealed the product did not work as expected. Particular pain points: - Emails can be sent from ChurnZero but only with one recipient. - Despite claiming to have a Segment integration, it is not a full integration and is intended for only events. They can set it up to accept attributes but it can be very glitchy. - The HubSpot integration is only "bi-directional" for some attributes and not others. This is not outlined anywhere. - The HubSpot sync only syncs tasks, there is no sync for emails or notes. - The Custom Table interface (where integrations sync to) is really badly formatted making it difficult to read. - The HelpScout sync only shows a small preview and formats badly to where the small preview takes up the whole page making it difficult to easily see past conversations. - If a Play is created for an account it creates it for every single contact on the account even if it's just creating a single task for the account - The UI is a little glitchy in places formatting weirdly - There's no way to add your own attributes or upload csvs, all this needs to be done by sending the information to their team. - There is no way to customize how many accounts appear in their lists (known as Segments) meaning only 10 accounts can be viewed at a time (a big pain points for CSMs skimming their account list). I'm sure there's many other nuiances we still have yet to discover. We were really excited for this tool and the possibilities but unfortunately it has been a lot of let-downs in the functionality.

Response from ChurnZero

Thanks for the review. It is appreciated and I'm sorry we got off to a bad start. 1) I do object to the word "deceive"; it may be miscommunication or lack of deep knowledge or even sloppiness. Since we, of course, believe in customer success, we know that deception at any point bites back. We wouldn’t knowingly deceive, but we'll work to improve in our communication to customers and prospective customers alike. 2) We do see consequences from this problem and you have been given recourse. We have changed our development schedule to build functionality to bridge the gap here. This is the price we are paying from the problem and it is a big one. We will strive to deliver on what was promised to you and your team. 3) Thanks for the thoughts on some of the other features. They are great feedback for our team. I will make sure they read this. I believe we have tried to make right what was a bad start to the partnership. I hope we can continue to show that we have the best interest of our customers in mind.

The software is great, the team is amazing

Five out of five starts. The team has been amazing from the start, and we're excited to be a part of the CZ Community. No software is perfect, but ChurnZero definitely puts customers first, and we've enjoyed every minute of the partnership so far.

Pros

The team that supported our onboarding and success has been absolutely next level. Through the entire sales/post sales process, our organization has felt like a priority, and the CZ team has seamlessly handled every curveball we've thrown. For the last 2 years, our org has operated without a CS platform, so bringing ChurnZero in to the fold has been an immediate game changer for our CS org. The ease of use for CSMs, the increased visibility into tasks, responsibilities, and journeys/plays has made our team more efficient than ever. As we continue to develop our use cases and build out the platform, we continue to be impressed with the capabilities to support our needs. We're still early in our lifecycle with ChurnZero, but have been blown away. As we continue to dig in, we know there's a lot to do, but we're excited at what the platform has unlocked for us already!

Cons

The only downside is the inability for an admin to delete custom fields that they created on their own (requires a support ticket). I understand the purpose, but as someone who builds first and thinks later, this leads to a bit of a slow down when I need to go back and clean things up. On that note, the support team has been incredibly responsive and supportive. Second "negative" is the lack of flexibility with the default "dashboard" the command center. Our CSMs/segment leaders would love the ability to create/define/build their own weekly views, but we've been able to make do with the default command center and some custom dashboards.

Reasons for choosing ChurnZero

We were able to narrow our selection down based on a few critical criteria: Health Scoring and flexibility, ease of task management and visibility, Automations through plays - enter and exit criteria, extensibility with our other systems (looker, salesforce, pendo, bigquery), data security, and ease of working with the team. Frankly, several options fell out of consideration for being too pushy/salesy too early in the process.

Reasons for switching to ChurnZero

Gainsight released a competitive product to Pendo (Gainsight PX) and we mutually decided to part ways a few years ago. Gainsight was too much engine for our org at the time, and caused what we refer to as "CTA Hell" based on overly automated alerts.

ChurnZero changed my life!

It's been overwhelmingly positive. I absolutely love the Customer Success Managers that I've been lucky enough to work with - they have been wonderful! I'm at a place where I've been with CZ for nearly 3 years and I feel like I still have so much more to get out of it - it's the gift that keeps on giving. I think this might be the most dramatically positive review I've ever written!

Pros

ChurnZero gives you visibility on every customer who interacts with your organization. It is an incredibly robust tool that is limited only by the data that you send to it! If you spend the time to get to know all of the ways that you can leverage CZ you'll never look back. It has completely changed the way that we are able to interact with and empower our customers. The greatest Pro is the people though - the support team is the most responsive I've dealt with (I'm talking replies within MINUTES sometimes) and the Customer Success Managers are the best in the world. They have fantastic webinars and weekly content so it's just the beginning of your best practice adventure.

Cons

I'll admit it was tricky to set up. But any system like this will be! That's the nature of robust systems - you need development work and a clear picture on where you are going. But you'll get an implementation specialist who will guide you through every step and (provided you have developer availability!) you can get through it easily. The only other Con I have is that the Email Tool can't be used for Email Marketing - it's great for one-on-one messages but you can't create big colourful branded emails in it. It's just not robust enough. Instead, I create these in Hubspot and port over the HTML code which is a great workaround but very time consuming. But CZ put out so many massive enhancements and new features I have absolute faith that they'll work on this one day and I'm happy to wait until then (that's saying something!)

Reasons for choosing ChurnZero

It was the most robust! They had an implementation specialist who could walk us through the whole process. They are constantly releasing huge features and enhancements. Everyone is the best at what they do!
