I know what you’re thinking.
You’re thinking “Yeah, a comparison of Wingman with a competitor, on the Wingman website. I’m sure this’ll be straight down the middle, no biases whatsoever. No sir, none at all.” All while your eyes roll to the back of your head.
And I get it. I’d be skeptical too.
But here’s the deal. We actually like Gong. It’s a cool piece of software, and it’s great at what it does. It drives a lot of value for a lot of companies.
The question is, will it drive value for YOU?
As great as Gong is, it’s not for everyone. And if it’s not right for you, then the worst time to discover it is right after you have signed up for a year-long, or even a month-long subscription. So let’s lay our cards on the table and talk about why Wingman might be the tool that fits your needs juuuust right.
Live coaching vs, well, NO live coaching
With traditional conversational intelligence (CI) solutions like Gong, you can review your reps’ calls once they are over. We at Wingman believe that might just be too late. Sometimes, your reps need coaching while on call. So what do you do? Sit in on every single call?
Well no. Unlike most tools, Wingman features live alerts, contextual suggestions and cue cards when your rep is actually on the call. In other words, when help is needed the most. Whether it’s a monologue alert when the rep has been talking continuously for too long or a sales battlecard with competitor details when the prospect brings them up - Wingman has your back on the battlefield.
Transparent pricing vs “talk to us to find out”
With Wingman, you can get started at just $60 per rep per month. That’s it. No hidden costs, no surprise fees, no minimum seats required. It’s a price point that many of our customers, especially in the SMB sector, appreciate.
Oh, and the cost is just for reps who want to use Wingman on call. For observers, i.e. people who want to listen to calls or game tapes (think of your sales leaders who just want to listen to calls), there’s no charge. Now isn’t that a weight off your back?
One-click setup vs hours of fiddling
Think back to those Christmas mornings when you couldn’t wait to grab your gift from under the tree. Ripping open the lovingly packaged box was fun, because it took minutes and soon you’d be playing with your shiny new toy.
Now imagine if it took hours to open the box, and involved dozens of fiddly little knobs and dials. Not fun, right?
With Wingman, you just have to sign up and push start. Onboarding and setup takes minutes (And costs zero dollars. Like we said, transparent pricing.), so that you can get to the good stuff soon. Very different from the pages of settings you have to go through (and pray you don’t misclick on something that messes up the whole setup) to get started on a tool like Gong.
Insights first vs reams of data
Tools like Gong give you lots and lots of data, for sure. So does Wingman. It’s what a CI tool is supposed to do. But what do you do with that data? This is why the Wingman dashboard is focused on giving you the insights first, front and center. This means you can easily:
Identify potential blockers that keep deals from moving forward or closing
Identify winning sales patterns and potential areas of improvement
Govern and collaborate on deals at every stage of the sales process
Oh and don’t worry, if you love the data it’s still there, just a couple of clicks away. Detailed breakdowns of deals, win/loss rates, talk/listen ratios, topics discussed, competitor mentions — all filtered by rep, date and more. We just like serving up the actionable bits first.
Clean, simple UX vs a maze of layers
Layers are great when you're an art installation. When you’re a conversation intelligence tool, not so much. Review your sales calls, pipeline, team performance and call transcriptions in one single glance with Wingman. No complicated filters, endless clicks or scrolling. Just take a look!
