    The path to success is obvious, once you know where to look

    Meet the next generation of proactive analytics tools. Here’s how they show you the way.

    New! Journey Maps

    Journey Maps is the first tool ever that can compare paths leading to the same goal, or measure the impact of optional steps in a funnel. Want to know if users who do step X are more likely to convert? Journey Maps surfaces all of the different journeys users take through your digital experience so you can quickly and accurately test whether a specific user behavior affects conversion.

    Top Events

    How it works

    Heap Illuminate looks for the most common events between two steps in a funnel and generates a Top Events table (shown to the left) that displays how well paths including different events convert to the next step so you can understand how that behavior is helping or hurting conversion.

    You can then choose an event and use Path Comparison (shown to the right) to fork your funnel and see how the selected behavior impacts conversion downstream. Journey Maps tells you where the greatest points of friction and opportunity lie to improve the customers’ digital experience.

    Step Suggestions

    Step Suggestions automatically surface events that exhibit significant dropoff but which aren’t currently tracked in your funnel. This includes events you haven’t yet defined.

    These suggestions direct you to the major milestones in your customer journey, including moments of unseen friction and opportunity.

    An in-depth look at the effort or steps needed to complete specific key micro website conversions. Diagram shows drop-off, interactions, time engaged and revisit rate for each step.

    Effort Analysis

    Effort Analysis provides the first-ever quantitative measurement of user friction, capturing the difficulty users face when moving through every step of every user flow in your digital experience.

    By combining the number of interactions between each step in the flow, time spent on each step, and the average number of site visits it takes to complete the flow, Effort Analysis helps you prioritize the fixes that will have the biggest impact on your users’ experience.

    Chart the path to customer success

    Heap Illuminate makes it easy for digital builders to find the most valuable insights from user behavior and prioritize the fixes that lead to the biggest business impact.
