AnswerDash Customer Analytics Provides Instant Insight into Web Users' Behaviors

Website and Web App Customer Self-Service Technology Enables Companies to Improve User Experience and Increase Online Conversions Using its Analytics Service

SEATTLE, April 23, 2015 /Marketwired/ -- AnswerDash, the world's leading provider of contextual point-and-click answer technology for websites and web apps, today announced the launch of powerful analytics features that provide instant insights into users' behaviors. AnswerDash analytics is the first tool of its kind to highlight customers' actual questions in context on a site or app, allowing businesses to leverage user data to improve user experience and optimize conversation rates.

Websites and apps can effectively use AnswerDash analytics to gain access into consumers' actual behaviors and drive user-centered improvements that are proven to reduce abandonment. By illuminating users' questions, where and when users seek help on websites and apps, and which customer service answers are most effective in driving conversions, AnswerDash analytics provides its customers with unprecedented real-time insights into user behaviors.

"AnswerDash analytics provide a full view of the user in context on the website, right where interactions happen," said Jake Wobbrock, co-founder and CEO of AnswerDash. "Instead of guessing why users abandon, AnswerDash empowers businesses with data around where and when users encounter roadblocks, allowing UX designers to double down where they are winning and make powerful design improvements where they are not. Understanding and responding to online user behavior is a huge competitive differentiator for multiple verticals from SaaS to e-commerce."

"We're excited about leveraging contextual analytics from a platform like AnswerDash to make meaningful improvements to our website in collaboration with our marketing department," said Megan Ritchie Saffitz, Director of Leed Support at the U.S. Green Building Council. "With a better understanding of the 'why' behind our users' behavior on our site, we get actionable data on how to improve our online experience without guessing. We use other analytics tools to learn what our users are doing; our contextual customer self-service platform, AnswerDash, tells us why."
