HiConversion

I really think any ecommerce website would benefit from HiConversion. All websites can use optimization, but I am not sure how you'd establish the ROI on a site that is not trying to drive conversions / sales. I think as marketers we often believe we know what our customers want or what we think will work for them, but HiConversion allows us to really get to the bottom of what helps and what hurts us in a quantifiable way. We have done campaigns on our product page, our shopping cart and our homepage and each one has resulted in a significant lift in conversions.

IBM analytics has continued to improve upon the days of being the original core metrics. After using the updated version for quite some time, it has been great at providing the needed analytics to measure ROI and goal performance for our quarterly KPI's. It has resulted in a great increase in web engagements although we are a midsize company, smaller outfits may not need such an expensive option.

Pros

HiConversion

  • Allow us to do A/B and multivariate testing of various treatments on our website. We can see how individual changes perform and how they perform in conjunction with other tests on the site.
  • Provide data to see where in the sales funnel there is room for improvement and how tiny incremental changes at each stage can have a dramatic affect on our total sales.
  • Using their years of experience and knowledge of industry best practices, they help come up with both UX and UI suggestions for us to test for our specific site, audience and use cases.

IBM Digital Analytics

  • IBM Digital Analytics is a strong offering for retail eCommerce clients, based on the out-of-the-box metrics available around product views, items added and abandoned, as well as the ability to remarke to the individual user based on that information.
  • Fairly straight forward implementation compared to the other major tools
  • Visitor stitching - I feel the IBM Live Profile is very accurate at creating a full picture of an individual user and provides opportunities to create better messages to them.
  • Having IBM Support as a an immediate resource to clarify or troubleshoot any of the system features has been very beneficial as well

Cons

HiConversion

  • We have had some issues with delays in the loading of treatments on our site which has made certain tests hard to accomplish or trust. This likely has a lot to do with our website speed, but has proved to be a challenge for us regardless.
  • Our team would have benefited from more hands on / in person training in the beginning, to allow us to better leverage all their tools. They have offered training but I believe we are still only scratching the surface.

IBM Digital Analytics

  • The user interface is dated and flash based which makes it very difficult to use on mobile. The visualizations and graphs are nice but hopefully they will move away from flash soon.
  • The custom reporting module, Explore, is powerful and the only place to entirely customize display columns and metrics but it is limited to a certain number of credits each month. Each month of data included in a report uses 1 report credit.
  • Inside the Digital Analytics interface you are limited in the number of one time and persistent segments you can create. One time segments must be within the last 93 days and the date range cannot exceed 35 days. Depending on the reporting request that comes up you may run into this limitation.

With DA being part of the IBM portfolio you know it will benefit from the size and scale of what IBM has to offer. Whether it be acquisitions or the product roadmap you know IBM will want to ensure that DA is right at the top of the market

As reports are templated, the system is pretty quick. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for a report to render. Or you might have to re-load the page. But there is no real issue here and the system is on par with other similar systems.

Overall, the level of support is very good and I would say it is a strong asset of the solution. However, you can sometimes feel that there is a difference of level among the support team.

Online training is really great. One of the best assets that they have. Lots of great videos, pop quizzes at the end of each module. Fantastic. Other tools have similar features, but not as good.

Alternatives Considered

HiConversion

We have not used or fully evaluated any competitors. Our free trial with HiConversion was enough to convince us to move forward with them. They platform will easily pay for itself

IBM Digital Analytics

Much of the work we did in IBM Digital Analytics could have been answered through Google Analytics, a much simpler, agile and FREE solution set. Not mention, given the vast number of Google Analytics USERS, free and actionable support is simply a click away ... this compared to IBM Digital Analytics fractured and often absent support service.

This solution can support large amount of data and transaction. The way that user management features are built, it shows it is meant for large organizations.

Return on Investment

HiConversion

  • We have seen a +9.85% lift in conversion rate in the 4 months we have been using them. We expect this number will continue to increase.
  • Testing we have done with HiConversion is allowing us to implement proven designs and experiences in to our upcoming new website launch.
Evelina Grines | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Digital Analytics

  • We spend too much time trying to work around bugs on the new UI.
  • We spend too much time trying to figure out how to make certain segments work because support and the knowledge center are lackluster.
  • Our sales rep is very unresponsive and leaves us searching for a lot of answers on our own, including what other products we may benefit from that IBM offers.
