    We tried the spring metrics trial. This application has much potential. Unfortunately it is not there yet.

    It has an easy installation by just pasting a script in your body of your website. And delivers the slide out as promised for the data inputed. The dashboard shows a very extensive list of data. And daily emails for progress. It also allows A/B testing to measure the metrics of sales with a targetted ad shown versus not shown.

    The problem is the data is skewed and useless. Of a course a customer who lands on your site with intent of a purchase is going to use any additional coupon offered. We found no evidence the app increases conversion rates. It is simply offering lower profit margins on your transactions. We contacted every customer that used the code and was a new customer by phone or email and polled them on influence of the code. The results were underwhelming. The coupons was not the deciding factor in any sale we had with the app.

    We also found the data collected to be wrong. Geographical profiling was a complete miss and a campaign we used to target Toronto was triggering from coast to coast. We can call the plus/minus 3000KM. It also failed to correctly identify new customers from returning. This can be easily corrected by allowing a upload of customer IP’s.

    We expressed our concerns with the telephone support they offered. Understandably they pointed out things like the dashboard showing increased sales with coupons and IP’s change. There was a strong push to issue more coupons then our target sample so the skewed data would show more ROI. It is false ROI and actually just shaving your profit margin. I recommend to very strongly think through any aggressive campaign with this app until they fix these core issues.

    If they fixed the geographical location issue and find a way to correctly identify new/used this would be an extremely useful tool. As it is this app does nothing but mislead the results and shave profits.
