Chartbeat
The main point of benefit is the realtime data. This is vital to our team as we are publishing a lot of content per day, so we have a busy homepage to manage and it's important to know which content is performing well. We also like to get an understanding as quickly as possible - which Chartbeat offers - of where traffic is coming from. Often we will see an example where a page is getting high traffic from Google, for example, and we know that might not need to be placed so prominently on the homepage because the traffic is arriving to us externally anyway. Without that depth of understanding what is performing best and why - updated immediately, unlike in Google Analytics now - our homepage would not be as well optimised for users coming to us direct

Small organization with limited resource can really make use of [Inspectlet]. Its really user friendly and don't need much expertise or training to use and you can have the entire department using it the very next day its implemented. But if its a large company, you might be better off with other session replay tools.

Pros

  • Inspectlet does analysis of sessions really well. We were able to view our funnel and view sessions that completed and dropped-off at various points. Setting up the funnel and doing the analysis was very easy.
  • I thought Inspectlet was very easy to integrate. During the integration, I was able to send metadata that allowed for increased flexibility during analysis. I loved that Inspectlet integrated with Segment.io.
  • I thought the tool's pricing was positioned well for the features it offered.

Cons
Chartbeat
  • Source of traffic needs improvement. Search and social make sense, but "internal" and "links" is a grey area. It would be helpful to define those with an organization and provide an information icon so users can easily remember what each of those buckets is tracking.
  • More ways to customize the real-time board. For example, with video content, that's great that I can see a user has started a video, but what is the completion rate, was that only on O&O or can that track Facebook, too?
  • Would like to see demo (age) information included as a way to slice the data so I can see what's working with my older and younger demo.

Inspectlet
  • Be more consistent on recording the sessions
  • Create an approved chrome extension that can be used to link session replay ids we gather in our Analytics tool like Adobe to the actual Inspectlet tool
  • Lots of times main dashboard doesn't load. Make the tool more bug free.

I gave Chartbeat a 5 for a renewal rating, because, while it delivers clear and understandable content, Google Analytics also provides many of the same features for free. For a small to medium website, I believe it would be more cost effective to use Google Analytics. A website with a high amount of traffic, however, could merit spending the money on Chartbeat to maximize their potential.

Usability
Chartbeat
I am able to "set it and forget it," keeping it up on my monitor for either constant checking or just keeping an eye on the numbers during the day. I'm also able to keep track of what times are perfect to post a story and which stories rack up the most traffic.

Support Rating
Chartbeat
I have had limited experience of support for Chartbeat but whenever I have needed help it has been there. Recently there was an issue of seeing different forms of data in real time - app and otherwise effectively, and the issue was being clearly dealt with and communicated back to us.

Omnilytics is more robust, detailed, and catered for an intermediate media user, while I think Chartbeat is a more user-friendly and beginner-oriented piece of technology. That being said, there is an impressive amount of lift for Chartbeat, and it's evident that simplicity is the key to using a software daily (which is absolutely the point in the content world).

I tried out several session recording tools. The things that really stood out to me about Inspectlet were the interface and integration. Inspectlet was easiest for me to integrate and start sending custom metadata. I also liked that you could set up Inspectlet to capture every session automatically. Finally, I really enjoyed Inspectlet's funnel reporting feature. It sped up useful analysis tremendously because most of the sessions we were interested in corresponded to funnel interaction.

  • There is no dollar figure to put as an ROI but the value this tool provides is much much more than the investment.
  • To be able to know the site from users perspective is the best ROI anyone can expect
