How to Use Tealeaf Technology to Optimize your Website Redesign

Posted by Greg Jackman

Wed, Nov 19, 2014 @ 08:11 AM

IBM Tealeaf software provides critical customer experience data so you’re able to make the best decisions possible throughout your entire website redesign process.

imgres resized 600

In IBM’s whitepaper, Drive Site Redesign Success, they discuss nine use cases, in which IBM Tealeaf works to prevent and resolve costly failures before, during, and after a website redesign. You’re able to use IBM Tealeaf to:


  1. Efficiently identify and resolve post-launch problems
  2. Cut site stabilization times through issue prioritization
  3. Validate A/B test results
  4. Proactively monitor your new site moving forward
  5. Capture real-world customer experience data for research
  6. Thoroughly benchmark the business performance of your old and new sites
  7. Improve quality assurance and development with best test scripts
  8. Make User Acceptance Testing (UAT) more effective
  9. Prioritize future projects according to business impact 

 

One of the most significant advantages IBM Tealeaf brings to a website redesign is the ability to quickly identify, isolate, and prioritize as many issues as possible as you launch a new website or website upgrade.


No new website launch will ever be flawless. Websites today are simply too complex to foresee every single issue. IBM Tealeaf technology provides a tool to quickly isolate areas of customer struggle. With any redesign project there is the potential for page errors or issues in deploying new business processes. Gaining both awareness and visibility to those issues is critical to providing a quick resolution.

With IBM Tealeaf’s visual replay functionality, you’re able to identify and visualize difficult issues that you weren't able to catch during the testing phase. You're able to diagnose the problem accurately and prioritize the issues that need to be addressed.

As a leader in customer experience management, IBM Tealeaf technology finds, prioritizes and repairs your website issues before they’re able to have a negative impact on your business. Based on proactive discovery and analysis of your customer experience, IBM Tealeaf solutions fully integrate into your website redesign lifecycle, especially during the post-launch stabilization period. You’re able to focus not just on reactive problem resolution, but on proactive discovery with alert capabilities and analysis of customer experience issues. You’re not only able to capture actual behavior, but capture scenarios that would otherwise be unpredictable and difficult to find.

Site Redesign Lifecycle:

Many organizations use IBM Tealeaf throughout the entire site redesign lifecycle. The unique insights Tealeaf analytics provide offers significant benefits in each of the 5 lifecycle phases:

  1. Plan/Design & Development: Real-world and benchmarking data, without page tagging, to conduct research
  2. Test/Quality Assurance: Convert real customer sessions into future test scenarios
  3. Soft Launch: A/B testing of new site features to evaluate why certain variables performed well or poorly
  4. Post Launch: Quickly identify and solve site issues, mitigate risk, justify website redesign investments, and prioritize future enhancements

 

After launch, you can use IBM Tealeaf solutions to establish a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that are useful to decide where on your site you need to invest more time and money. KPI’s can be used for benchmarking your new site as well, without the hassle and inconvenience of tagging and waiting months for results.

 

IBM Tealeaf provides the tools needed to avoid website redesign failure.

Awareness:

With IBM Tealeaf technology, organizations have the qualitative and quantitative data to lessen the risks involved with site changes. IBM Tealeaf allows you to be aware of a range of problems before they damper your customer’s experience on your new site. Some common problems during a website redesign that Tealeaf analytics draws attention to are:

  • Broken links or functionalities
  • Navigation issues
  • Server configuration issues

Visibility:

One of the best reasons to invest in IBM Tealeaf before your new website launch is the level of visibility it provides into your customers’ online behavior so you’re able to identify and resolve issues quickly, giving you the opportunity to make better website optimization decisions. Tealeaf software records and captures all your customer’s interactions in real-time across your entire website. Its replay functionality enables you to gather the quantitative and qualitative data (with no page tagging) to solve the issues and evaluate the business impact site obstacles have on your online business. Without Tealeaf’s replay capability, customer behavior would be difficult to reproduce and fix, and may lead to premature diagnoses and more costs. Some of the high-level benefits of implementing IBM Tealeaf before your new website launches are: 

  • Investing your resources where they can make the greatest improvement and impact
  • Dramatically reducing the time required for site stabilization
  • Increasing conversion rates and decreasing customer complaints
  • Improving top and bottom line results

What’s New with the Latest Release of IBM Tealeaf cxLifecyle?

Posted by Greg Jackman

Mon, Nov 10, 2014 @ 08:11 AM

In October, IBM released a few new enhancement features for cxLifecycle that were developed to give users a more complete understanding of their entire customer journey. Users of this IBM Tealeaf modules are now able to: 

  1. Build milestones, or conversion events, that allow marketers to measure the time and sessions it took for customers who advance through the customer purchase lifecycle
  2. Promptly react to non-migrators (potential customers who abandon the purchase lifecycle)
  3. Easily import or export Tealeaf and cxLifecycle segments, with one click, for replay and/or conversion analysis
  4. Build reports in cxLifecycle with imported segments
  5. Open imported segments into Tealeaf session lists
  6. Have expanded support for mobile devices

For those not familiar, IBM Tealeaf cxLifecycle is an analytics reporting system designed to provide extensive cross-session visitor and segment level analysis in an IBM Tealeaf session.

The key enhancements revolve around the milestones in cxLifecycle that provide more powerful, and well-rounded, insight into your customer experience. To further define, milestones are conversion events that compound to define a customer’s full conversion lifecycle.

cxLifecycle now allows the user to identify and react to those customers who are progressing from one milestone to the next, and those who don’t. With non-migrators, you’ll be able to understand where and why they abandoned. cxLifecycle users are now able to diagnose, classify, target, and plan their interactions with non-migrators.

You’re also able to see beyond single-sessions and metrics to other web analytics tools to discover areas where customers struggle, and areas where they thrive. cxLifecycle now sets specific goals designed to reduce the time it takes for a customers to reach a milestone, giving you the ability to evaluate their effectiveness on your marketing strategy.

With cxLifecycle’s ad-hoc reporting, customer lifecycle analysis and visualization, tag management, and data syndication (DDX), Tealeaf users are able to optimize their Tealeaf web analytics. With this Tealeaf technology, you’re able to run qualitative and quantitative analytics, from one tool, to drive more effective customer interactions. cxLifeCycle also allows you to measure long-term, customer lifecycle conversion analysis across multiple channels and devices. With cxLifecycle, users are given the tools to find and quantify trends and anomalies that influences conversion rates. The ability to implement advanced customer analysis of issues found through Tealeaf session replays is also a useful feature of adding cxLifecycle to your Tealeaf software.

 

5 cxLifecycle Benefits:

  1. Enables the insight gained from Tealeaf to be analyzed in a cross-session, cross-device context
  2. Combine data to uncover which marketing campaigns, channels and tactics succeeded or failed, with added insight into why
  3. Use customer replay analysis to fix critical, costly customer experience gaps, and measure the results on those same customers
  4. Surface unique, actionable, and frequent insights on the customers’ journeys across conversion milestones
  5. Data syndication (DDX), enterprise-class tag management, easily displaces costly Tealeaf competitors

With these new features of IBM Tealeaf cxLifecycle, you’re able to gain valuable insight from the combination of qualitative and quantitative analytics. This data can be used for extensive ad-hoc analysis, segmentation, and conversion analysis.
