Most software product managers only have access to limited data and anecdotal evidence of product use. They lack the tools to make informed decisions based on actual customer usage of their applications. Unfortunately, this lack of data-driven insight can stand in the way of successfully meeting their customers’ needs.
Being customer-obsessed is essential to delivering successful software products and increasing satisfied customers. Most software product managers only have access to limited data and anecdotal evidence of product use. Information that enables you to understand user behavior and make informed decisions that support customer needs is lacking at every stage of the product development process.
Leveraging anonymous usage data with contextual in-app messages is a better way to engage with your users. By delivering the right message to the right user at the right time, it can dramatically help drive adoption of key features, increase conversion rates, and retain existing customers. All across the customer lifecycle, in-app messages can deliver a better customer experience for better business results.
Since the emergence of the commercial software industry, software vendors have struggled to overcome piracy and license misuse.

We asked the product management community about software usage data. This report shows what they told us. Gartner has predicted that by 2021, 75% of software providers will rely on insights from embedded software usage analytics to inform product management decisions and measure customer health.
Software usage analytics arms product management and marketing professionals with answers and insights to crucial questions about user environments, prospect evaluation and buying cycles, product trial conversions, renewals and upgrades, feature usage, and software reliability.
Development teams are challenged to build increasingly competitive products, but they must overcome difficult tradeoffs to do so. They must prioritize a mounting backlog of new feature requests, balance innovation with maintenance, manage growing technical debt, improve quality and usability, accelerate delivery, and reduce cost — all at the same time.
TechSmith regularly surveyed customers, but wanted to augment that data with comprehensive quantitative insight into product usage. Its own data collection system contained no reporting or analytics, frustrating product teams and the technical professionals tasked with operating and maintaining it. “Whenever we had a question our product teams had to ask a developer to stop work and write an SQL query," a strategy lead explained. Here's how TechSmith uses Revulytics to solve this challenge (and others).

CNC Software knew it needed detailed product usage data to accelerate development, improve focus on the customer, and innovate more effectively.

Today, construction firms are faster to recognize the benefits of innovative technology, says Solibri Product Manager Juan Rodriguez. But the far-reaching nature of Solibri’s users – professionals in multiple disciplines, on every continent – has made it hard to get timely and complete customer feedback. Solibri wanted a much better understanding of how our typical users are engaging with the software through anonymous usage data. If they created a new feature, was it successful? Has it been adopted? Why, or why not?”
Understanding customer usage data resulted in higher product quality, more efficient R&D investments, tighter alignment with customers, and greater customer loyalty for this healthcare software firm.

Can I dump an old feature that complicates UI changes? What if you could quantify the number of unique users who actively engaged with a legacy feature? You can - here's how.
When can we drop support for an older version and reallocate those product development resources?
A software company faced a common problem. It was extremely dissatisfied with the number of trial users who converted to paying customers: only 20 sales per 1,000 downloads. And, it was wasting sales resources on low quality leads.
How a software company with 100,000+ users eliminated costly customer surveys, home-grown data sources, and unnecessary reporting tools – and started saving $10,000-$20,000 per release in QA costs – by implementing Revulytics usage data.
