Challenge

Our client needed a unifying structure to implement its analytics across its websites. The existing setup often led to confusion during analysis and left gaps of incomplete data. In addition, the inconsistent use of custom events, variables and goals made difficult or sometimes impossible to get accurate information.

Solution

BrainDo implemented an overhaul of their analytics tagging including an optimized user interface that allowed our client to gather more reliable data and access it more intuitively.

“We worked closely with the client to build a custom analytics mix that brought more accuracy and depth and allowed them to get much better answers from their data.”
