There are a lot of analytics tools. This one does work.

Overall mixpanel is one of the best solutions on the market. It is realiably, offers wide range of tools and libraries to satisfy both administrators, marketologists, developers and managers. It is somewhat costly and sometimes you would like mixpanel to think more about the edge cases.

Pros

Tracks both events and profiles. Collects wide specter of attributes, some of them automatically. Provides quite comprehensive documentation, including some obscure use cases. Mixpanel supports mobile, web, server side analytic events, and for that offers a number of implementation for different languages and platforms, including JS, Ruby, Python, PHP etc. Dashboard offers dictionary, event and field renaming, live events and profile updates stream, various graphs and insights. Built-in visualizer uses mixpanel own query builder, it works perfectly and requires just a bit of reading. Again. the documentation, examples and how-to's are very helpful. Mixpanel does not lose updates in most of the cases, but they might be delayed. Heat map is there but sometimes it works a bit strange and it is hard to tell whether it can be trusted.

Cons

Mixpanel does not document the whole protocol and this is VERY inconvenient when server-side events are to be implemented, or your application requires proxifiying to work around adblockers. The protocol itself is not suitable for seamless proxifying. Documentation may be slightly outdated. Some obscure moments in it are just there for like forever despite discussed numerous times on the internet. Tech support is mostly useless. Most of the time it is possible to sort thing out without technical support, though, but still - this is something that could definitely be improved. Until recently there was no reliable debug tool to check updates to profile. Now, though they are rendered as operations, it is still not exactly what is expected. Latency sometimes is an issue. Price is a bit too high.

Great Analytics tool for Decision Making

It was a great product we use it on daily bases to track the user activity on our site and based on the research we plan our future goals.

Pros

1. It is highly useful for those products which are based on customer service over web like hotel bookings, resume creation, etc. 2. You can easily create your own events for evey page or action and track user experience on mixpanel that where are they mostly using and viewing on their site which helps in decision making to upgrade their products. 3. You can easily access the mixpanel data form anywhere just login to mixpanel site and you can see the realtime data. 4. It is also easy to implement on the source code of products . We just need to include one script and we are able to add events where ever we like to define.

Cons

Sometimes we face issue in profiling of the users.

Reasons for Choosing Mixpanel

1. Flexibility to customize our events. 2. Realtime data was fast.

Reasons for Switching to Mixpanel

It does not give the flexibility to manage our events.

Mixpanel Review

As an e-commerce retailer, it's imperative to have a solid engagement tracking software program. Mixpanel makes a solid product to help customize the different areas you want to focus on. For a retailer, seeing where our engagement stems from and how our customers are behaving onsite is vital to the success of our business. This tool offers so many customizable interfaces and is overall very intuitive to use and helps drive business in the right areas.

Pros

My favourite feature about Mixpanel is the ability t create and utilize funnels. By creating a vast array of funnels, it makes it possible to track how a customer interacts with the website and what steps they take to get to the end results. This is super helpful for pinpointing things like user drop-off. Where and why did they abandon their shopping session? How can we get more customers to complete their purchase thus increase demand? With Mixpanel you don't have to do any guesswork, just setup your specific funnels and the data is right there!

Cons

It might just be me, but I find the event tracking dashboard can be a little convoluted at times.

One of the best web analytics tools

- Web analytics - Mobile Analytics - Marketing Attribution

Pros

The best part about this app is that I able to track a mobile and web user of my application under the same umbrella.

Cons

The user interface is not the best for non-analytics or non-technical users but it is better over time with the new updates.

Awesome tool for In-depth Product Analytics!

1. Understanding the Drop-off & Conversion across different funnels in the product. 2. Measuring the product usage analytics across different plans to know the customers better. 3. To seek feature adoption by the users via usage analytics. 4. Creating a cross-functional dashboard to consolidate and present the crucial metrics, keeping stakeholders informed hassle-free.

Pros

Seemless event and funnel segmentation analysis with a lot of crunching functionalities. Readily downloadable in CSV o PNG format. Integrating tracking code is hassle-free as well, given the exhaustive documentation & video tutorials available. Overall a pleasant experience!

Cons

No auto-save feature in the Dashboard. You need to click on save every single time you add a report to a dashboard. Pop-up is damn annoying. It also has some sync issues where some of the events don't show up and need a hard refresh before it starts showing up again. No option to create a team/squad to collaborate on a specific dashboard. Doesn't have an extensive integrations bucket.

Reasons for Choosing Mixpanel

Effective costing, plus easy to use UI/UX with Java Query Language support!
