General Business Questions - Help!


I’m not sure how I should ask my questions but I’m currently planning to install the Piwik software onto my server, and am looking to help my clients track heatmaps. I would like each client to have an interface which I provide to them so that they can track their own heatmaps, but not my other client’s heatmaps. I may help them install the javascript onto their webpage, but some clients may want to install the javascript onto their own page as well.

I have read through your website, and I have a few questions I would like to kindly ask you. I do apologize in advance for some of my questions. I don’t have a development background, though I will be working with developers, so some of my questions will appear a bit basic.

  1. Do you have a demo available for the heatmap? I tried the demo on your website but am not able to view a demo for the heatmap feature
  2. Can I install the heatmaps feature only, and not other features, and give it to my clients to use?
  3. Would we install the source code into our own server to track the clicks?
  4. Do you have a click maps view? (displays each click in a small dot)
  5. Can I generate a Site overlay map, similar to Crazy Egg, which indicates the following information? Each hyperlink would be displayed in a different color, depending on the intensity of clicks.
    a. number of clicks per hyperlink
    b. time to click each hyperlink
    c. page view duration of the next page
  6. Would we be able to create a “List” view which is a list of data to identify the number of clicks per element?
  7. Do you offer functionality to:
    a. Adjusting for transparency in your heatmaps and clickmaps
    b. View heatmaps/clickmaps with any date range
    c. Email map to another individual as a screenshot or pdf
    d. Print map
  8. Can I incorporate the interface within my own control panel? Or would I need to use your interface for my customers to view the maps?
  9. Would I be able to archive old pages for comparison analysis?
    a. What happens to the maps when I change the website content? Would the page and map be automatically saved?

Thanks in advance!
