Web analytics are frustrating for journalists. They're anecdotal, incomplete and confusing. What publishers really want is a better way to understand what their audiences value, what engages them and what will make them paying customers.

It’s a strategic tool built around newsroom priorities to grow audiences, deepen engagement and drive subscriptions, and it's designed so every user can see how their work contributes to larger organizational goals.
