292. Tapping Into the Untapped User Experience: Combining User Analytics and Feedback In One Essential Tool

Posted on: 2015-06-24

With the speed at which technology is changing and advancing, it is disappointing that as developers and designers we still canít get the big picture of our siteís user experience.

On the one hand, there are many great Web analytics tools out there today that measure user behavior. There are also many popular customer feedback tools that help to understand the voice of the customer. But fusing these two disparate pieces of information into one concise tool is a largely untapped area in our industry.

As a developer, more tools means more headaches and more overhead. As a designer, you need several key data points to create better sites and solutions around your users, but this data can be hard to find and take action on when you need to use a handful of independent tools and draw insights from them yourself.

Read this article to learn about a powerful new approach to understanding the whole user experience and how to improve it with Hotjar, an all-in-one analytics and feedback tool.
