Qualtrics vs. Refiner

Even though Qualtrics and Refiner have a similar product feature set, there are a couple of key differences. Here are the most important ones.

Focused on in-product and "post-signup" survey use cases

Qualtrics has a broad product offering that covers every imaginable survey use case. A typical Enteprise product serving all kinds of customers if you will.At Refiner, we are fully focused to meet the needs of a specific type of customer: SaaS & digital product companies that are looking to survey their users.Our focus on "post sign-up" surveys allows us to offer better user targeting, reporting, and segmentation options.

In-product Microsurveys

Integrations with your favorite tools

Qualtrics has a lot of integrations but it’s missing a few ones that would be especially useful for SaaS companies.Surveys are a means to an end and the goal is to close the customer feedback loop so everyone knows what to do next.That’s why integrations are so important and why the right seamless integrations can make this job a lot easier.In addition to Zapier, Refiner also integrates with Make so you can create even more advanced automations. Send survey data to all the platforms you need to and create users or events from external triggers.Customer.io is also a first-class integration of Refiner and lets you send messages depending on a survey response and close the feedback loop with the right message to customers.

We love using Refiner to automatically gather NPS survey results and get critical feedback we need from our trial users so we can constantly improve our word of mouth flywheel. With its Segment and Zapier integrations it fits right into our product led growth tech stack. Easy to install, tons of value and zero hassle.

Refiner is a powerful survey tool that allows to precisely target user segments based on our data. We tested several tools before going to Refiner and what made the big difference is that with Refiner every survey answer is directly logged into our database via Segment, and that’s a game changer! Also, the initial integration and setup were seamless and extremely easy. The templates and the ability to customize survey with our own branding and targeting specs is very much appreciated too.

We discovered Refiner while using another SaaS product and we instantly fell in love with their UI / UX. So we gave it a go and were collecting user feedback for SnapShooter in no time. We are using Refiner to collect insights about how our users discovered us. The Slack notifications when someone completes a survey are a great addition to keep the team informed.
