Our frustration

We have worked with Web Analytics for many years and was frustrated over not being able to find a tool that was able to present web analytics findings in a way that a non-technical person could understand.

We knew that many online business owners don´t have a real data-diven business approach because they don’t analyze their website properly.

Not because they do not want do. It is because It’s a complicated task that requires a great deal of expertise. It’s also a task that should be undertaken on a regular basis, for which most people don’t have the time or the inclination. Unfortunately, this means they’re losing out on a lot of potential business.

Know what is important to you

Canecto was created to resolve this problem by producing the overview the business owners lags of what is important to their business and knowledge on what improvements on their site that works the best for them.

Communicated in a way that a non-technical person can understand.
