If you are reading this I guess you probably have a web portal, perhaps you’ve developed a product or maybe you have just purchased new CRM system for your company and you want to make it easier for your customers/employees to use and master this new application.
After hearing about this “new walk-through technology” people keep mentioning you’ve decided you need one for onboarding your users and for supporting them. You shop around, ask friends and maybe even google “onboardusers.com” but most likely, become even more confused, and I completely understand why;
When we started with Iridize, some 6-7 years ago, there were only 2-3 solutions in the market. Yet today, if you google “walk through,” you will find around 20 different products that advertise their wares. From basic products that offer you simple site-tours, to extremely complex, enterprise level applications that offer high end features and user training and even offline implementations.
I’ve written this piece in order help you (in your evaluation) to ask the right questions, to understand what options are “out there” and to help you create an order out of the mix of possibilities. I will not choose one solution over another or mention any specific product names. There is no one-solution-fits-all and I do not presume to dictate to you what is right for you. My aim is rather to offer you a set of tools you can use in the evaluation process.
As the two leading market solutions, Iridize and WalkMe are normally the two final professional solutions companies need to decide between. In this post we try to help you discover the differences between the solutions and to describe the benefits of Iridize over WalkMe to certain customers.
Wishing all our friends, customers and partners a wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah and a splendid 2017 all around.

See you at #LavaCon!
Ages ago (at least in technology terms), we published a post on WalkMe’s competitors. 3 years have gone by and the face of the training & onboarding industry has changed quite a bit.
The training and onboarding solutions map has changed considerably since 2013. Not all the solutions that were available back then survived the competition, and a few new, up and coming products have been added to the mix.
Following, is our attempt to offer a comprehensive, 360 view of the most popular training solutions available for SaaS, web and on premise products in 2016 (by alphabetical order):
