Mixpanel

Mixpanel is perfect for analytics reports where event and user data for a platform are important. For bootstrapping or economical companies looking for a reliable but free platform, Mixpanel should be the best option as they cover a lot of analytical ground. This is also perfect for SaaS companies, both small and big.

If you're looking to go beyond session replay and have a tool with intelligence to show you specific issues, and prioritize those, I think this is a good tool. Retailers that have had ups and downs, and are maybe seeing an increase in their online traffic/sales, who want a better view of how to improve the customer experience. You need a fairly mature digital analytics environment for this to make sense.If you have a more basic analytics environment, or you don't have the people/skills to use all the information QM can provide, it's probably not a good fit.

Pros

Mixpanel

  • Mixpanel's ease of use is easily their best feature, allowing you to quickly create graphs with a few point and clicks. Their UI is also fairly snappy and well-designed.
  • Tying together events with user attributes allows you to properly segment users into cohorts which can then be tracked individually. Proper segmentation is where most analytics solutions earn their keep.
  • Live view is a nice perk that gives you a good feel for who's on your site and what they're doing at any single point in time. This can be further filtered to focus on particular events of interest.
  • Mixpanel has flexible plans that work for smaller startups as well.
  • Their documentation is top notch.

Quantum Metric

  • Identifying user pain points and frustrations. Quantum Metrics has a data point called Rage Click which shows when a customer has clicked multiple times back to back on a particular section of the website.
  • Replaying a session to see everything that is loading on the front end to the customer, as well as the backed end of the website, has been critical in troubleshooting the experience.
  • Heatmaps are a awesome tool we have found very useful in showing engagement with different content on the page, how far user scroll & drop off and to see a split side by side view of the same page in an a/b test.

Cons

Mixpanel

  • I didn't use the engagement features at all but it seems like they could have a better WYSIWYG editor for the emails for non-technical people using Mixpanel.
  • The custom reports feature seems to be really powerful but I wish they had more resources/templates for creating custom reports. I don't code so it was really hard for me to use this feature...BUT the reports I was able to get help with, were really powerful.
  • I wanted a dashboard area for all of my reports in one view. It seems like they were implementing this when I was moving jobs. If it's not available yet, they definitely need to add a master dashboard page for arranging saved reports.

  • Usability. Eliminate clicks on repetitive tasks, enable more terms to be searchable in the global search bar, and reduce the number of back-and-forth clicks.
  • Make videos more accessible with the keyboard. Space bar to pause, left and right arrows to skip, ctrl/cmd+left/right to skip to the next session, escape to exit view mode, etc. That stuff goes a long way in making the product delightful.
  • Improve rendering of user sessions. Too many of them don't work properly.

It's not an all encompassing solution like Google Analytics tries to be, but MixPanel offers much easier to use and understandable data insights. That's valuable when juggling many responsibilities as startup life demands, so a renewal would be easily justified.

Quantum is a nice tool and is user friendly however I believe there always room for improvement.We have experienced minor issues with a few sessions which were solved by Quantum support reps in a timely manner and some of the dashboards are not as robust as other tools we use

For a new user, it's pretty intuitive to onboard and start doing the basic functionalities. But QM has a lot of functionalities which can be leveraged by more team members (especially when you don't have analysts dedicatedly using this) if further enhancements to usability are made.

I think it’s a decent solution, but there has to be something better out there. I don’t trust that everything it’s tracking is accurate, which is problematic when your company is essentially using it as a customer relationship management tool. Mixpanel also used to provide live chat support and then they recently took it away, making it harder to get the support we need.

I've been very impressed with the support Quantum Metric has provided. Our amazing Customer Success team has provided excellent service and has gone above and beyond in helping us use and understand the tool. We hold weekly calls with multiple teams and QM has been proactive in bringing things to our team's attention and making suggestions. The support has been one of the most important aspects of having QM and has allowed us to make great strides in improving how we use data and user research in our work.

Again, somewhat annoying to be charged based on data points when many other analytics providers have one flat fee. Implementation was good, but I might have tracked a few more detailed points if I had the option.

Alternatives Considered

Mixpanel

Haven't used any direct competitors at the moment as they didn't exist when we first started using MP. That said, it looks like there are a lot of new up-and-coming tools which will be able to do certain things better than mixpanel - if not all of them. Examples include Hotjar, FullStory, and potentially some home-built tools which will funnel data into a centralized data warehouse we can query with SQL. Not being able to use SQL in Mixpanel is a HUGE detriment and could serve as a key reason for dropping the product as soon as a viable alternative appears.

Quantum Metric

We have used - as an organization - multiple products that each fill a roll or task Quantum Metric provides...however I think there are very few tools or SaaS solutions out there that bundle so much into one solution. QM was better than the replay tool another group was utilizing (Mouseflow) because with our contract we could capture and review way more replays as well as have those replays married to actual, quantifiable data. From an analytics point, is so much easier to install event tracking as opposed to our basic Google Analytics implementation. However, I would still use GA as a primary record for measuring overall site performance since QM doesn't have robust product sales tracking.At one point we did review a competitor called Content Square. They seemed very focused on heat mapping.

Return on Investment

Mixpanel

  • Better customer service - we can better understand our individual customers by quickly viewing their Mixpanel profile. It also saves us a lot of time because we don't need to ask them as many questions (such as what browser they use) in order to resolve their issue.
  • Conversion rates - we have significantly increased our conversion rates from users first landing on the website to filling out their contact details to join the website. As a result, we are able to spend more money on our digital advertising and thus we can acquire more users per day.

Quantum Metric

  • It helps us to resolve the customer issues very fast so that we can fix the issue in a very short period which increases faster resolution.
  • Sometimes customers are going through wrong process and we can easily help the customer with the help of a QM session.
