How is Archie.ai different from Google Analytics?

Archie is not an alternative to Google Analytics, Kissmetrics, Mixpanel, Chartbeat or any other analytics engine. Archie uses data from these Analytics engines to perform added-value functions that require further computation to translate data into insight.

In essence, it’s a layer of A.I on top of your analytics engine (e.g. Google Analytics)

Analytics engines like GA are reactive reporting tools that only report on the past and produce a staggering amount of raw data that most businesses never end up utilizing to make decisions. In contrast, Archie uses all the raw data from these analytics engines to predict and optimize future performance.

Archie looks at Data from the perspective of Conversions. Archie clearly knows the KPI you’re optimizing for (e.g.Revenue/ Traffic) and attempts to identify the relationship it has to other data points/features and reports the patterns, anomalies and prediction to help you augment your day-to-day decisionmaking (e.g. How much to spend on FB vs Google Adwords?)

Who should use Archie?

You’re a Product Owner/Product Manager/ Executive directly responsible for the performance of your business’s digital front.

You’re part of a business that sells their product/services online through websites, web/mobile apps.

You’re an engineer trying to find a better way (automated) to sift through data and report actionable analytics, anomalies and patterns to your team.

You’re responsible for allocating how and where Digital Marketing dollars are spent.

You’re interested in A.I and and want to automate certain business processes for added efficiency.

Do I need to know how to code to use Archie?

No. You don’t need to know any coding to use Archie. Log in with your Google Analytics account to start.

I don’t have eCommerce functionality on my site/app, Can Archie still help me?

Yes. For properties without eCommerce functionality Archie helps you optimize for total traffic and user engagement. We serve several media companies and publications that earn revenue through ads (e.g. Adsense).

Archie registers a conversion when a visitor clicks through to an additional page after arriving to the site. This behavior indicates an engaged user and Archie’s job is to advise you in ways to increase traffic and conversion rate.

This includes regular traffic projections, conversion funnels, insights on behavioral differences between segments (e.g. converted user vs bounced users) etc.

I don’t use Google Analytics, I’m using ______ as my primary Analytics engine. Can I use Archie?

Unfortunately, currently you need to have GA to be able to use Archie.

We will be rolling out several new integrations in 2017. To stay updated on Archie follow us on twitter @Archie_AI
