If you need to characterize the loaded data with statistical parameters, it is preferable to do the analysis previously and only load the results for the software to show them. This does not detract from the software, it is simply impossible to "have the best of everything" in a single application.

Hitwise is best suited for looking at overall traffic behavior or a site or industry. It will help you quickly identify the where and the what when it comes to consumer behavior (i.e. what are they doing before they visit your site, where are they going after). It tells you a lot about who they are and what sparks the initial trigger. Where it isn't super appropriate is when you need to look at a specific term like "are eggs healthy" and you can't identify where that specific term falls in the overall "egg" searches.

Pros
CleverMaps (formerly CleverAnalytics)
  • The response of the software to the requirements has been consistently fast. Only in extreme cases where the speed of the internet system present in the site where the tool is being used is extremely slow, we have recorded delays in accessing information.
  • The software allows the possibility of several people located in different geographic locations, simultaneously accessing the same information, without interfering with each other.
  • It has made it possible to detect "information gaps" that were thought to be non-existent, and that resulted in expedited decision-making, to try to fill the gap or to find alternative solutions, not initially contemplated.

Cons
CleverMaps (formerly CleverAnalytics)
  • It is not functional if it is intended to be used in small mobile screens, since to achieve an adequate visualization of the maps and the side panel, at least one screen the size of a tablet is needed.
  • There are times when you do not want to show (for reasons of confidentiality or for commercial reasons, for example) all the data that is associated and loaded in the database. So far we have not found a way to load the data in a way that ensures that "sensitive data" is displayed only when desired, and not automatically with the data set in general. The option is possible. Research is continuing on this.

  • Sometimes the insights seem a little bit basic
  • Reporting function is hard to deal with sometimes
  • Access to sales/purchase data

Alternatives Considered
CleverMaps (formerly CleverAnalytics)
With sincerity, the company has not opted in particular for any of these applications. It has evaluated the benefits and weaknesses of the named applications and other additional ones that are not included in the previous list. As it happens with almost everything in life: there are skills and potentialities of a software that are more applicable in certain fields of work, and for certain characteristics inherent to the data that it handles. Within this same company, there are applications that are more useful for a certain type of data and information and less versatile for others.
More important is the knowledge that must have, about the data and processes involved, the person who has the responsibility of selecting a certain software.

Selected Hitwise because it is much better for insights on small-scale websites

Return on Investment
CleverMaps (formerly CleverAnalytics)
  • It allowed detecting "information gaps" in places where it was not expected that this scenario could occur.
  • It has made it possible to quickly visualize, locations where, although information existed, this information was relatively old, or of low quality compared to that which can be obtained with the most recent technologies.
  • The detection of these scenarios improved the level of satisfaction that the company routinely asks of its clients, who stated that they are highly satisfied with the level of knowledge that the company has in relation to information, especially the historical records, that in our field of action is of high importance.
