Iridize is built with simplicity in mind -- there are no bells and whistles, just a simple guide creation and management process. As an enterprise-grade product, it’s effectively the antithesis of WalkMe, which has so many options and configuration settings it’s hard to know where to start. As such, Nickelled is an excellent Iridize alternative – both focus on simplicity.
It's worth noting that Oracle acquired Iridize in September 2018 – the intention was to enhance Oracle's "Guided Learning" capabilities, to increase cloud adoption. However, Oracle has confirmed that it's reviewing the Iridize product roadmap and as such, it's unclear where support for non-Oracle applications will end up.
Feature-wise, there isn’t a great deal to choose between Iridize and Nickelled -- both offer a simple experience, with standard guide features such as reporting, theme customization and multiple users. Nickelled offers the ability to create guides without using the Chrome extension, although a pop-up on the first load screen suggested that there are other options offered for Iridize users who don’t want to use Chrome.
With feature parity our honest view is that the choice may come down to usability -- and we’re fairly confident that as of October 2016, our guide creation process is easier to use and less frustrated when compared to Iridize. Please get in contact if you’ve had a different experience and believe this comment is no longer reflective of reality!
