The challenge

Why did our clients come to us?

The website was using an in-house tag management solution that needed to be migrated to Google Tag Manager. However, there was only a 3-month window to complete this migration and it involved 6 CMSs and 500 tags!

What were their pain points?

  • Lack of time and resources
  • Using an old version of Google Analytics
  • No QA testing
  • No A/B testing
  • Poor data governance
Our approach
  1. The existing GTM setup was cleaned-up and changed from Classic Analytics to Universal Analytics.
  2. A phased approach of migrating the pageview, events & then transactions was adopted.
  3. An automatic QA system was introduced to monitor the 500 events during the migration.
  4. A robust migration process was introduced to minimise human error.
  5. Further GA & GTM support and implementation
Google Tag Manager gurus. I worked with them on a complex implementation project for over 10 months and continued to be impressed by their GTM & GA skills. They provide creative solutions and were not shy about making recommendations or improvements that they believed would add value. Their expertise in Analytics and Google Tag Manager definitely make them a great resource to work with.
