Feature Upvote is designed for companies of all sizes, not just enterprise

UserVoice is great software, used by companies like Microsoft. However, because UserVoice has moved upstream to support enterprise customers, it isn’t the best choice for every company.

We designed Feature Upvote to work for everyone, particularly small to medium-sized companies and organisations. Our core features are:

  • Contributors can add suggestions
  • Contributors can vote on suggestions
  • Admin and contributors can comment on suggestions
  • Admin can merge, split and edit suggestions
  • Admin can add statuses to suggestions (like “done” or “sales team suggestion”)
  • Boards can be made public, password protected or use Single-Sign-On (SSO)

Feature Upvote fits in to your workflow and is easy to use

UserVoice has two main products: a help desk and a customer feedback platform. The customer feedback platform also supports multiple activities, including roadmap building.

However, if you already have a help desk that you use, and tried-and-tested product management processes, then you might prefer a simple customer feedback product that works with your existing set up. Rather than attempt to replace it entirely.

This is where Feature Upvote comes in. Our product nimbly fits into your existing workflow, giving you a quick and easy way to organise feedback in one place and prioritise it through voting.

Feature Upvote also integrates with Slack, Jira and Zapier.

Feature Upvote is also genuinely easy for you, your colleagues and your contributors to use. There’s no learning curve, as there is for more complicated software. You can get started immediately.

What we like about Feature Upvote is its simplicity. We looked at similar solutions, but they were much more complicated than they needed to be.

Although UserVoice is a big company with instant name recognition, we’re happy with our more modest reputation. We’re popular with companies and organisations all over the world, from major banks to online retailers and community theatres. We support feedback boards in 10+ languages, and happily cope with boards with many thousands of contributors.

Here’s an example of a popular Feature Upvote board, used by digital notebook company Rocketbook.

Feature Upvote has a free 30 day trial

Currently, you can only try out UserVoice if you first jump on a sales call with one of their team (although you can watch a product tour or an online product demo).

That’s not quite our style. With Feature Upvote, you can quickly sign up for a free trial online, by providing your name, email and a password.

You’ll have access to all our features, so can properly test out whether we’re a good fit for your company or organisation. See pricing.
