Software & Product Usage Analytics - Usage Intelligence
Product Usage Analytics for Smarter, Faster Strategy and Roadmap Decisions
Whether defining new features or optimizing your existing product functionality, Usage Intelligence (formerly Revulytics) helps you make better decisions. Collect and analyze actual product usage metrics to understand user engagement and interaction with your software, analyze your install base and build a data-driven strategy for roadmaps, packaging, pricing and sunsetting decisions.
Enabling analytics in your software applications doesn’t just provide a better foundation for Product Management decisions. Technical and environment data gives insights for Development teams trying to plan for infrastructure and support requirements. Marketing teams can leverage usage analytics to run more engaging campaigns. C-level executives can benefit from dashboard metrics that visualize the overall health of their product lines.
Usage Intelligence, the first software usage analytics solution designed for distributed C/C++, .NET, Obj-C and native Java applications on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux, provides deep insight into application usage. See which features are used most and least. Advanced reporting lets you filter by properties including region, version, OS platform, and architecture to focus your roadmap development.
Native in-app messaging lets you communicate directly with users. Send the right message to the right user at the right time with contextually relevant messages sent to specific user segments based on rules you define (such as feature usage, geographic profiles, software version or license status). Announce new features and offers, provide ‘how to’ tips, or notify customers of upgrade opportunities.
Stop guessing, start knowing. Better software and customer engagement begins with better user data.
