3 Reasons Blue Triangle and FullStory are Better Together

When it comes to your digital tech stack and choosing between engineering or business tools, it’s not a matter of this or that. It’s this and that because you don’t need to select one platform over the other.

When your cloud observability and digital experience solutions play in the same sandbox, you ultimately win. That’s the approach Blue Triangle and FullStory take, so you can uncover more site friction, make more informed optimizations, and convert more visitors for a healthier bottom line.

Blue Triangle and FullStory agree that digital user experiences have become a determining factor in the success or failure of any online or omnichannel company.

We’re not alone. By 2025, 70% of digital business initiatives will require IT leaders to report on users’ digital experience, up from less than 15% today.

Providing optimal end user experiences is more important than ever across industries and teams. Companies with a digital presence are seeing firsthand the impact it can have on KPIs like retention, traffic, and conversions.

Frictionless Digital Experiences Build Customer Trust and Loyalty

Now, novice and digitally savvy consumers alike expect every digital experience they receive to be as fast, easy, and personalized as shopping on Amazon. In other words, a frictionless digital experience.

This expectation isn’t going away any time soon, and 81% of CEOs agree. Shifting much more toward a “digital first” experience and leaving physical in-store experiences a lower priority is likely to be a significant and enduring trend to build customer trust and loyalty.

Frictionless Digital Experiences Produce Tangible Business Outcomes

Although from an IT perspective the digital experience may look good, your end-users can still experience it as “slow” and have a negative digital experience.

Which in turn, directly impacts your revenue and business outcomes. Research confirms friction results in revenue loss.

So, organizations struggling with delivering a frictionless digital experience across different channels and touchpoints will find it even more challenging to compete with other brands that excel at providing optimal user experiences.

That’s where Blue Triangle and FullStory come in to provide complementary benefits that elevate the quality of the digital experience you offer your users.

2. Increase Your Business Value Using Blue Triangle and FullStory

Blue Triangle is keenly focused on helping companies quantify the cost of revenue-robbing friction in the digital experience. By understanding the correlation between conversions and performance, teams can quickly identify at-risk pages and prioritize which friction points to resolve first to realize the greatest impact on the user experience and business outcomes.

Plus, this way, teams won’t be wasting valuable time and precious resources chasing after optimization projects that will have little to no impact on the business.

FullStory can identify and quickly bubble up issues that are undermining performance. Having access to real-time conversion funnel performance and critical user data, such as dead clicks, error clicks and various custom events, can significantly reduce the mean time to resolution (MTTR).

As organizations seek out revenue opportunities, Blue Triangle’s Conversion Rate Curve can provide teams with insights into what can meaningfully move the needle of their business. Coupled with FullStory’s ability to surface issues jeopardizing successful outcomes, you can maximize your optimization initiatives.

Blue Triangle and FullStory are at the forefront of visualizing the customer journey and showing you exactly how users are navigating your site.

Blue Triangle’s customer journey analysis allows you to visualize all the different paths your users are taking. So, you can quickly identify your top converting paths (user flows that are resonating with your end users) or instantly identify friction (bottlenecks that are leading to abandonment).

FullStory’s journey mapping gets more granular and gives you the ability to add custom events and visualize them throughout the journey. This kind of impressive mapping will allow your team to see every user interaction and see if they start branching off and triggering certain events that you’ve configured.

With this data, you can pinpoint specific user interactions that occurred, making it very easy to reproduce a flow that users are taking, which plays a key role in MTTR. Also, you can even pull up the session replay of a specific step and get a visual breakdown of how that page performed.

Blue Triangle can reveal high level journeys and allow you to visualize all the different paths being taken; the top paths leading to conversions and the top paths leading to abandonments. FullStory can ease troubleshooting by providing granular journey data and session replays to quickly search for specific events, errors, or interactions to diagnose and fix bugs or usability issues.
