In today’s fast-paced and tech-savvy world, businesses can be empowered to visualize exactly how users navigate through their website or application, where they encounter difficulties, and how they interact with different elements. Armed with this information, enterprises can harness user behavior analytics to optimize their digital channels and ensure a seamless UX by below means –
