TL;DR: Are customer dashboards or analytics on your 2023 roadmap? Book a demo, and we can get you going!

Why do leading companies like Shopify, LinkedIn, or Twilio spend so much time and resources building analytics into their products? They are typically trying to accomplish one of three things:

  • Unlock enterprise adoption: quoting from the guide: “Reporting and analytics allow admins to demonstrate value gained from the use of an application.”
  • Accelerate product-led growth: To unlock growth, PLG companies need to empower customers with data to understand how the product is performing for them, to understand their usage and spend, and to troubleshoot without writing in to support.
  • Increase conversion rates: Kayak has my favorite example with its price forecast. It’s a prime example of in-product analytics to drive conversion rates.

Whether enterprises, self-service customers, or consumers, they now expect to be empowered with data to make decisions and understand how the product is performing for them.
