Visual Website Optimizer‘s parent company Wingify, is today announcing its acquisition of US-based Navilytics which provides visitor analytics solutions. This is a step forward for the company which aims to emerge as conversion optimization company from A/B testing tool.
The company is focusing to create a platform where all the tools related to Conversion Rate Optimization are available at a single destination, including heat maps, visitor recordings, usability analysis, expert feedback, form analysis, surveys, A/B testing.
Navilytics was launched in February 2014 by Conner Hewitt in Chicago with the goal of becoming a new standard in web analytics. It has more than 600 users, adds capabilities of heat maps, click maps, scroll maps, visitor session recordings and form analysis in an all-in-one powerful package.
Soon, many of the features of Navilytics will be ported into Visual Website Optimizer (VWO). The company has already made available visitor recordings, form analysis and area stats on its platform.
A couple of weeks ago, the company launched a new feature called On-page surveys, which helps users to uncover website visitors’ intentions, motivations and apprehensions. It comes with themes and modification options using CSS, along with some advanced features such as collect emails, download reports, etc.
The company hopes that these new features will allow marketers to walk in the shoes of their customers with far greater clarity. User now see how a particular visitor browsed their website, what path they took, how much they scrolled, where they clicked and in what sequence they consumed content on their page, and then trigger a survey based on their behavior asking why they did or did not take a particular action.
