What is HockeyStack?

B2B organizations require B2B marketing analytics more than ever before. A robust analytics framework — whether marketing analytics, product analytics, or analytics for other data-driven functions — is a comprehensive approach to better understanding customers, closing sales funnel gaps, identifying customer journey pain points, and enhancing digital engagement.

There are few B2B marketing teams that have the resources to build this framework in-house. An analytics software can help here. When it comes to analytics tools, there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all.

Various platforms have emerged, offering brands customizable services across various business models (SaaS, B2B, B2C, etc.). Knowing which tool has the most potential to benefit your brand and its growth is vital.

In this blog, we discuss the GDPR compliant SaaS analytics platform HockeyStack, a popular tool that unites marketing, revenue and product data, so that marketing & growth teams understand the drivers of product engagement and high-quality leads, and increase revenue faster than ever. HockeyStack is suitable for a large number of businesses, but it lacks a few marketing-specific features. This review compares the services offered by HockeyStack, identifies what is required and what is not, and determines whether it is the best option for your brand.

Who is HockeyStack for?

Limitations with HockeyStack?

  1. Early stage Insights: The AI for Insights feature is still in the developmental phase, thus it doesn’t help much when it comes to  providing accurate and informative insights which can actually impact activity, engagement and conversions. It will take time to finely tune the AI-engine of HockeyStack, in order to give accurate actionable insights.

  1. Limited Dashboard functionalities: Less number of dashboard templates are available. HockeyStack lacks sophisticated dashboard templates as a result of which users have to manually design them and choose functionalities that are required. The manual process is quite hectic and time consuming. 

  

Why Factors over HockeyStack?

Factors monitors your metrics and automatically updates about changes over time along with the contributing factors.
