ClickTale, the innovator of In-Page Analytics, today announced that European technology investor Amadeus Capital Partners has led a $17m Series B growth stage investment in the company.

While traditional web analytics track only page-to-page navigation, ClickTale records and analyzes the True-to-Life User Experience„¢ inside the page helping businesses achieve their online goals such as converting more site visitors into buyers or increasing engagement with site content. ClickTale's premier product, ClickTaleÂ® Core, provides anonymous playback of user browsing sessions, aggregated heatmaps of in-page activity, as well as tools to increase form completion and optimize conversions.
Most companies recognize the importance of the user experience, but few have visibility into their users' website activities. A recent Baymard Institute review revealed that a full 67% of shopping carts are abandoned prior to checkout. Since ClickTale provides full visibility by capturing the entire browsing session including every mouse move, click, hover and scroll, online marketing and ecommerce managers can finally discover and understand why customers abandon shopping carts, what errors they experience, and where poor user experience frustrates them.
While working with some of the world's leading websites, ClickTale has created the Online Optimization Cycle„¢ to help them maximize the speed and effectiveness of site improvements. The Online Optimization Cycle is a best practice that combines traditional web analytics and A/B testing with ClickTale's In-Page Analytics to iteratively improve the user experience resulting in better conversion rates, increased revenues and higher ROI from existing marketing activities.
"We are excited to have Amadeus and Goldrock join ClickTale as we continue to create more value for our customers by helping them achieve online success," said Dr. Tal Schwartz, CEO and co-founder of ClickTale. "The support of our founding investor, YL Ventures, has been a major factor in our success to date. This investment will enable us to broaden our product offerings, invest in R&D and expand our operations globally."
Founded in 2006, ClickTale has more than 80,000 clients, including some of the world's largest websites such as T-Mobile, CBS, and Lenovo.
ClickTale is the leader in Customer Experience Analytics, the next advance in web analytics, optimizing usability and maximizing conversion rates of any website. Its patented Customer Experience Visualization„¢ technology allows companies to see their customers' true-to-life online experience at all levels of detail, from aggregated views to playable videos of users' browsing sessions. Unlike traditional analytics platforms that assess page-to-page navigation, ClickTale reveals the customer experience inside the page. ClickTale Core„¢, an enterprise-class SaaS solution, is fast to deploy and provides immediate ROI. Serving over 80,000 customers worldwide including many Fortune 500 companies, ClickTale is the fastest growing company in its space. For more information, please visit www.clicktale.com
