Reason for Our Rating

Heap has made significant strides with their eCommerce offering compared to legacy solutions since they entered the market. The tool’s behavior analytics let teams dig deeper than usual into customer behavior to analyze a problem, or a worthy success. Heap moves past the high-level, traditional metrics and focuses teams on specific events that create new day-to-day value.

If your eCommerce business has grown past the start-up phase or is generating predictable revenue, Heap is a great platform for scaling analytics. But while its structure is highly adaptable to businesses, be prepared for serious investments from your bank account and learning curves for your average users.

The Good

Real-Time Reporting We love real-time data here at Yaguara! Heap is a leader of the pack of accurate real-time reporting on your conversion funnels.

Rich Customers Profiles Offers the ability to drill down into individual users to see user histories showing a comprehensive picture of every single thing a given user has done.

Multi-Device The ability to choose additional data points make Heap a unique offering for multi-device eCommerce teams to get the full picture of your customer journeys.

The Bad

Slow Segmentation Segmentation set-up has been reported to take time and is not as automated as it appears.

Additional Education Requires a learning curve for users to configure and generate reports specific to the business, in addition to having basic knowledge of HTML tagging.

Limited Free-Tier Your team will quickly grow out of the free plan and capabilities, so think of this as nothing more than a sandbox account until an upgrade.
